The chassis will basically be new, with all new bolts. Interior will be the best I can find on the front half, and the back will be custom rear deck, new carpet, cage, custom rear panels. Engine will be stock B18C5, trans will be CRV with H22 gearset + some MFactory bits, DSS carbon shaft, rebuild VC, rebuilt RT rear end, DSS axles, suspension is going to be a custom bit from an AUS company called MCA...etc, etc.

That a nice looking car! What brand of rotors did you get?
This will be my 3rd built from scratch head. Its much easier than that block imo as there are no gaps to measure, torque/un-torque etc. I just follow the Helms manual which is basically the Honda shop manual.
So it's been a while since I've posted because I've mainly moved to Instagram, but I do really miss the forums mainly due to knowledge and a sense of history and community. Something I just haven't found on any social media site. Gonna be bringing the build back here for updates.
So without further adieu:
Time to start working on the bottom end:
This tool made piston seating soooo much easier:
I got an o ring :)
And mock up time!
Mock up with log mani:
Now time to move on to wiring:
And fuel pump:
Test bumper with test hack:
And loading up for the tune!
So I went in for the tune and had two leaky seals, and my ebay turbo already had some blow buy just after the initial running at idle.
That prompted me to bring the car back to my garage, tear down the motor again, replace the seals and then think about the ebay components and I decided to replace them all.
I picked up this refurbed turbo with a 1yr warranty:
Comp 5858 T3/ .63
Not pictured but sitting in my garage are:
Tial MVS-A wastegate:
Tial Q50 BOV
ACT Exxtreme pressure plate
ACT 6 disk sprung from a 87 prelude sI (220mm/20 splines for an 88 trans)
ACT 14lb flywheel
3" custom exhaust with Vibrant turbo muffler and expansion chamber
I'm still deciding on the exhaust header.
Now Ive just got to get a little help from my welder friend on the exhaust and welding the vband clamps to my charge pipes and I'll get it back in for the tune.
It's also 12*F outside right now, so who knows when that is going to happen. :)
