Mannnn, it's been wayy too long since I've posted here. I hope everyone's doing well! I'll be checking out everyones updates soon enough, figure I'll go ahead and update this however.

Alright, well since that photoshoot a lot has happened. I finally got settled into my new house, and started on my main build up. First off, I decided it was a good idea to get a decent reliable turbo build for the KA. I also apologize about the instagram pics coming, can't find originals lol.

Some goodies:

Then, decided fuck that lets just go SR. I do like KA's in a sense, but I got a great deal on an SR so I sold everything and swapped on over. But in that time, I sold the RPF1's and bought some Blitz 03's to be rebarreled.
Image


During transit, they lost 1 of the 03's. No insurance, no nothing. So then I had (2) 17" 03's and (1) 18" 03. Decided screw trying to find one more 18" 03, and I traded the two 17" 03's for some Gramlight 57D's.
Image


Then, a fire happened in Colorado Springs which caused chaos throughout the city, not to mention it was about 10 minutes away from my work.
Here was the fire the day before it entered colorado springs, this is the view from my work.

And here's the picture the next day:
Image


Then, smart me decided "hey, lets go see it up close!"
Image

Image

Image

Image


Luckily, got out with no harm done and no real damage to the city other than a few houses.

Back to the build. I got a set of 4 03 replica wheels as spares
Image


Went to a buddies first drift event with his Silvia, here's a few pics:
Image

Image

Image


Got myself a new exhaust
Image


Got a Buddy Club rail and a bride seat
Image


Finally picked up my SR
Image


Started cleaning it up and buying mods, IE: oil pan, intake mani, etc.
Image


Pushed the car out for a quick cleaning with my buddies Silvia
Image


4 car garage ftw
Image


Then I tore apart the SR to check for any damage, and yeah, sure enough, spun rod bearing. So bad the crank was trashed along with the rod and cap. So, I said screw that, lets build this bitch.
Damage:
Image

Image


And the final progress:
Got myself a new SR radiator and GP Sports cooling panel
Image


Digital S13 cluster with HUD
Image


Bought some Equips also, just hangin out with my other parts. New gaskets, SPEC clutch, Eagle Rods/CP Pistons, bearings, crank, downpipe, etc etc.
Image


Even more equips... (i have 6 equips total now lol)
Image


BC cams
Image


And thats basically where I am today. The block is getting ready to head to the machine shop for a good cleaning and honing. I will update you guys as I progress in the build!

Oh, while doing this I've been playing with my daily drivers. Here's all my dailies I've had in the past few months haha.
Here was my '00 HX. Bought a legit CTR front clip for it and little interior bits.
Image


Ended up trading it for a DB8 that was all 'herrafrushbreh'
Here was the car when I got it:
Image


Then after a month or so, had it looking like this:
Image

Image

Basically got wheels, mudguards, db8 visors, DB8 ITR spoiler, etc.

Traded the DB8 for a CX hatch and an EK hatch with a built motor
Here was the EK, a bit rough
Image

Image


And the CX after a few mods of my own (was bone stock when I got it)
Image


Sold the EK, sold the motor, then traded the CX for my current daily, which is a b20B powered EJ1
Image

Image


Thats where I am! Sorry for all the pics haha :P

Thanks a lot man, appreciated! Any reason why you haven't touched your Civic in over 3 years? I love that thing! I'll stick around, lots of work lately so I'll try and hop on when I can to update you guys.

Haha, I love changing it up, especially when I drive 50-75 miles a day. I'm now considering selling the Civic and putting a down payment on something AWD such as an Evo or Sti. I need something that does good in snow (Colorado) and something that has room, power, and just fun to drive. We'll see though!

I got some new Apexi coils which put me a lot lower, so I'm excited about that. I'll have my Z32 rotors and AP lines in today so my Z32 calipers can finally be put on. More pics later!

Oh I hear ya man. I bought a house also, I need to quit it with my cars but my main focus is to get it running. Can't wait for my tax returns though, all going into my house!

On another note, I traded my Civic daily yet again. I know, I need to stop. But shit, hopefully you guys don't blame me for this one.

I traded my B20 EJ1 for a '90 RX7 FC3 S5 with 62k original miles! All power options, just has a little hail damage on the hood.
