Default My 93 civic coupe build thread.

I got this car a year and a half ago in california... it burnt a few valves on the drive home to idaho And I've been tinkering on it ever since.

I'll just do a little photo timeline, I just lately started taking photos of my progress on a regular basis.. but you can get the idea.

Goal = 500hp on e85 and 10.99 or faster on dot slicks, and to break 125mph trap speed in full street trim to make it the fastest fwd street car @ my local track..

Here it is, fresh paint, how I picked it up down in LA... note paint looks bright white!

After the cage is welded in, I need to weld up my first turbo manifold, make a backdoor intercooler, weld up my exhaust, downpipe, and I/c piping.
I just ordered Neptune rtp, -8 lines to do my fuel system, 1000cc injectors and a 255lph pump.
I still need to finish my brake tuck and wiring and I'll be ready to rock.
This is my first turbo car and I'm forcing myself to learn how to do everything myself and so far its worked out pretty good.

Nice job but aluminum on the exhaust? Using it on the back half of the exhaust right?
