hello to all, my name is Christopher and this is my build, a lot of time and effort went into this car.
its a 1998 integra gsr, and I cant thank the biggest influences Erinn, the love of my life, my main supporter and has helped me through it all!! Bobby, one of the nicest and knowledgeable people i know! James, for building my motor and teaching me things, and being very helpful and straight forward! and Scotty, for getting her tuned and is still willing to help me with things and I cant forget German, put my car up in his garage so she wouldn't be in the weather and helped me pull and install my motor


the beginning
this is the first day I got her, a HOT mess that needed to be tackled!

http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk270/Ef_ftw73/1336424652.png


after i got her, i started thinking of ideas on what i wanted my project to be. and honestly, my first vision and how the car is now are two different things lol

but starting the car, I got a great deal on a b20v swap, (b16) head. type r intake manifold and throttle body, and some bolt ons
http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk270/Ef_ftw73/1337006711.jpg


i was so happy to have her running, and i had some cash left over and decided i wanted to get something ive always wanted, a jdm front end, and thanks to Bobby for helping me install and put the front end on

http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk270/Ef_ftw73/1336423491.jpg


i was beyond happy, and i found my old wheels and decided to throw them on
http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk270/Ef_ftw73/1334075524.jpg


after that, I started cleaning the crap out of the interior because it smelled like weed and had weed all through out the car lol, and also taking the crappy window tent off!
http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk270/Ef_ftw73/1336505376.jpg

and i decided i didnt like my wheels and traded them for some stock wheels, the good ole fashioned LS meshies, and dont regret a thing!
http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk270/Ef_ftw73/1337716504.jpg



well, a few months pass and something TERRIBLE happened!, i let my best friend Stephen Burke drive her, and BAM! spun a bearing....... lol

a lot of sadness and sulking took over, and I didnt know what to do!, than I got a great idea to get someone to do a stock rebuild for me! and i got to talking to James emmino and to rebuild what was messed up, would be around the same to do a mild build!
and at that time, i got hungry, i wanted power. i told him what do i need to make 200, which is perfect for my daily! and we worked things out, talked it over and started the build

he took the motor apart and noticed a number of messed up things! like a washer in the timing case, everyting over torqued, rod bolts rounded off!

it was a ticking time bomb!
but now the motor is together, we hit the dyno! she made 192 / 138 tq, ls tranny and maxed out the injectors!
http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk270/Ef_ftw73/245_zps1bae11d2.jpg

i was upset and picked up some 310 injectors, which i was told were 440's and delivered 310's instead, i wasn't to upset because he said if they maxed out he would refund me 100%

at this time i decide to get better wheels, and an asr neo-chrome subframe brace!
http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk270/Ef_ftw73/364_zps36602478.jpg

http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk270/Ef_ftw73/205_zps66b2924c.jpg
looks a million times better in my opinion!
http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk270/Ef_ftw73/500_zps2ec7fd89.jpg

now im at mainstream getting ready for her to be tuned
http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk270/Ef_ftw73/523_zpsb8a41449.jpg


after the new injectors, and pump, we hit the dyno again! and this is where she is now!, im losing power due to having a terrible alignment, causing drag because the wheels were in the direction of this

lol / \ lol.

http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk270/Ef_ftw73/555038_10200969906758176_1021205054_n_zpscb336683. jpg

a little info on the build, b20 block, 84mm pistons, skunk 2 pro 1 cams, and skunk 2 cam gears, 310 rc injectors, upgraded the valve springs and retainers, 255 walbro pump,



i was so happy! but while the motor was being put together, I got antsy, i NEEDED to work on the car! so i started picking up things here and there!

found some awesome interior parts!
found a set of usdm itr rear seats for a really good price
http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk270/Ef_ftw73/091_zps4fe36765.jpg


a full NRG quick release set up off a contest I won off facebook lol!
http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk270/Ef_ftw73/1342023100.jpg

and some bride low max seats, and some takatas! .......and some led's

http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk270/Ef_ftw73/319_zpsa1cc47d5.jpg




now i got my interior pretty, i needed to get some suspension parts!
so I got this! buddy club p1's, function 7 lower control arms
http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk270/Ef_ftw73/462_zps1dbd2121.jpg


now i have everything on, and getting ready for an alignment, and the machine is old and hooks up to the tire, so i had to get the fenders off lol

http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk270/Ef_ftw73/520_zps7f5125fa.jpg

now im sitting pretty and aligned!!
she is really dirty from pollen and my co-workers were checking out my rear end lol
http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk270/Ef_ftw73/530_zps678fd2ea.jpg


well now, I decided to sell my type r intake manifold and throttle body after i get my new parts in, which shipped out to day!
http://i282.photobucket.com/albums/kk270/Ef_ftw73/522_zps9e39cd58.jpg

Your only other option would be eBay. The ingalls and spc kits wont give you enough correction.

first off, I decided to play with some wheels, and BOY did I hate these, but atlanta made up for it, lol

i had to switch it up because i was not pleased with the wheels,
and ordered me a new set of rpf1's with some 205-45-16 bfg sport comp 2 tires

which i enjoy a lot more, BUT during shipping, i hit a dead cat in the road and destroyed my front lip, and scratched up my bumper and fenders, so I sat down and thought about what my next step would be due to the fact, Import alliance is less than 2 weeks away!

so i ordered a new cf spoon lip, in luck the hood was fine! and out of no where i saw someone with a carbon fiber bumper, and fenders, so i bought them all, and now i have a full carbon fiber front end, lol
