That's my friend Ethan's Civic. Woot!

I also took some pictures of my friend Joey's Civic a few weeks earlier...

We've actually talked about it before. Just never been able to work it out. Next year all of our cars should be farther along so I'm sure we'll try to get out to more meets.

Well, not necessarily built as far as "race car", built engines, etc. But we all have a lot of shit done.

Thanks though for liking my IS, it's got a lot more done than meets the eye. Especially now that I've pulled the lip kit off.

My car is NO WHERE near where I want it to be. Complete new look is coming next summer. New front bumper, side skirts, rear bumper/lip, grill, and WHEELS. If anyone is interested in reading more on my mods and everything you can check out my build thread here: http://my.is/forums/f219/white_is-build-thread-new-pics-post-712-11-14-a-353403/

The white Civic is Ethan's. I don't know everything that is done to it, but he is making 240whp with a Jackson Racing Supercharger. And he's rocking real Regamaster's.

This is what he has on Honda Tech about his motor:

"The motor is a stock obd1 b16a with dual valve springs on both intake and exhaust side, gsr intake cam, 00 itr exhaust cam, JRSC with ls crank pulley (8-9psi), benen industries fuel rail, precision industries 440cc injectors, fuellab 10 micron fuel filter, walbro 255lph fuel pump, fidanza adjustable cam gears (I can't remember what we ended up at cam degreeing wise), rmf narrow rep header, 68mm omni power throttle body, port matched s-tube, hondata thermal intake manifold gasket, p2r thermal throttle body gasket, modified gsr short ram intake, and takata dry filter."

Again, not sure what all is done to the red Civic which is Joey's. I know it has coilovers, motor swap, and Advan RGII's lol. He's working on a turbo setup now and has a Wilwood front BBK at his house.

There is also Kellen's K24 RSX Type S. He's having a few things redone in the engine bay, wheels refinished, and I think a few other small things. He's got two Bride seat's. That's about all I know lol.

Wade is actually doing a full build on a first gen? Eclipse I think. New suspension, wheels, motor, paint. BIG turbo.

http://i13.photobucket.com/albums/a255/dsm-swade/a7258d78.jpg

And last but not least, Hooch himself has built a 240sx with a V8, massive Work Meisters, and a ton of suspension, brake, body, and paint. He still has a lot of work he wants done, lot of cleaning up the motor, fitting a hood, having the fender's reworked and repainted.

Yup, he car is pretty sick. He's the youngest of us down here but we've got him going in the right direction :)

The 300 looks awesome.

Thanks :)

This is how it looked before I pulled the lip kit off. I've got a new front bumper and grill on the way. New side skirts will come after the holidays along with a new rear bumper. New wheels are "bought" so I'm getting closer :)

VH45DE Infiniti motor

His build:

http://forums.nicoclub.com/my-vh-s14-project-t426703.html

He's gotten a few things down since it was last updated, but not much.

New "tuned' (? no speed cut, more aggressive timing, aftermarket exhaust) hasn't been installed. He lowered it more and pulled the fenders more, still plans on taking it back to the body shop.

His diff cover ended up being fake so he bought a new Greddy cover.

That's about all I can remember off the top of my head lol.

That's what we shoot for :) We might not be able to justify it but we do it anyway lol.


The red Civic might be getting a pair of Recaro's now. I came across a set and sent him the link and he likes them, just depends on $$ and whether or not he decides to do it.

I'm selling my SSR Professor MS1's. I've got another set of SSR's coming, they are a older model/style but wider :) I've also got a new front bumper/lip on the way and a new grill. OEM JDM bumper with Authentic TRD Lip and a real TRD Altezza grill. I just need to get new side skirts and a rear bumper before spring/summer.

LOL. I'm guessing he wants the wheels to fit better... The wheels are 18x10 and 18x11 I think so they aren't ever going to "fit" on stock body. He has wider front fenders, and rolled the rears. Since those pictures he has roll the fronts more and flared out the rears. It's going back into the body shop to have the rear fenders smoothed out, flared more, and repainted so they'll fit better when it's all done.

He just needs to go lower, maybe a size smaller tire, and run a little negative camber.

I would still be up for taking pics this next spring, my wheels are going to cali to get redone but will be back in plenty of time for nicer weather

Yeah I'm going to have some new wheels before the end of winter. I should be able to get up there sometime for a meet or something, I'll just try to keep a thread updated so we can get something lined up.

Yeah I have been in contact with them for about a month now on and off, I was going to do root beer brown but I thought about resale next winter so I opted for a different shade of gold. I am also getting all 4 wheels polished and cleaned up. I think my pricing was 550 (not w/ shipping)

Idk something about them, I like wheels being staggered and having a lip, but to me anything with more than like 4 inches of lip is too much imo, and ever since you posted those adv.1 wheels I have fallen in love with that whole line set up, but that's just my opinion, of course everyone has they're own opinion.

Oh I understand, the IS has a really high offset to begin with some trying to get the right wheel is a pain in the ass (unless you cut/roll) the fenders. I used to own one and it wasn't really fun to wheel shop for it unless you wanted to drop some money.

For all four?? That seems like a good deal to me! I would mainly be looking at having the bolts redone and the lips polished/chromed. One of my buddies in town works at a powder coat shop so I can get the faces done for cheap. I might have to get in contact with them for sure!

I thought we were talking about the 240? Either way, he'll be keeping his wheels with how much he spent on them lol. And once they get fitted better it'll look good.

Of course it won't be for everyone though.

Corey, I don't think smaller tire is going to solve anything. The car is not a show car... It actually drives and we all know it needs all the tire it can get with all that torque. lol F*ck fitment the car is perfect.

However, I do agree however on the rest of it. Camber it in just a bit more and once he's done pulling the fenders a bit more it'll look great! In fact, it already looks great. It'll be better than great. haha

Also, thanks guys for the compliments on all of our cars. There isn't much down here besides the few of us but we do what we can!
