Default the debut of my hatch

So having been a member for i believe over 2 years, I think its time I get in on the fun. I picked this hog up late august for $2K from my buddy with 86K miles. It had an Intake, header and exhaust which i installed for him 3 days after he purchased the car 3 years before i bought it. After that..... just routine maintenance.
Quick Overview:
stock y7, 90K original miles
Lowered on Ksport Coilovers..........which Ive loved for every minute btw
GSR rear sway bar
Short Shifter
ES Bushing master kit
Fresh OEM clutch, flywheel, pressure plate, and throwout bearing.
And finally a worn input shaft bearing that continues to make noise
Steelies and dumped


15's and dumped

Y8 head

EX front swaybar, LCA's and all other necessary equipment


Near future Plans are a built y7/y8 mini me and some turbo boost Things not pictured are a Turboxs RFL, and a walbro fuel pump, Autometer 3" Tach (got a good idea where its going....not ricey) Autometer oil pressure, and AEM UEGO wbo2 gauges. Also have the y8 intake mani with TB and vtec solenoid . still have lots of parts to gather (what a surprise), but it should be an exciting build. should be done around May i hope. Head and Intake Mani will be sent off to NY in January to have some porting done, as well as the whole head assembled with either a Ferrea or Crower valvetrain. Then the spare bottom end I have will be built, then the spare y7 tranny i intend to purchase will recieve some form of LSD or quaife. anywhoo, enough talk.....enjoy the pics

Looks nice.. though I wouldn't worry about the front sway bar and ----... honda's already have too much understeer as it is. I would stiffen up the back instead with an Si rear sway bar...

Those rims are like bad knock offs of knocks offs. :P Good luck on the build and I'd say just put on the head and boost it. Screw that porting ---- and save yourself some money and time.

Quite honestly, I dont think they are knock offs of anything. I havent seen any wheels much like them. Scrool down to see better pic.

Sorry Abaz, the wheels are actually a pretty glossy black, they are just dirty all the time because i dont have time to make it all pretty everyday. It will take some time to make it faster than my old saturn. Reason why im going with a solid build before boost.

And yes Paul.....of course it is in better hands than before, notice the orange grill is gone. No bright orange H stickers.....I just cut the whole ---- out alltogether.

Thanks Bro! Yes it does sound like ---- But hey, Ive quieted it down a TON because riceboy before me didnt have a cat converter or resonator or anything but pipe on it before, I put a cat converter on it and a resonator on it to tone it down. I put them on to pass emissions, and go figure, with obdII where i live, its just a visual test, they look to see if you have a cat converter, test the obd port, and send you on your way, no sniffer test.
