    New to the forum. Just bought my first new car today.

    But have built a few older models. Here's my current project. A jdm b18c in a gutted 93 vx.

    I've browsed here since I got the thing. Lol like 3 hours straight. Not looking to mod the car as I have my toy. But looking forward to making people change my mind when the warranty is up. Also looking forward to learning! Love this car!!!!!!

    Update as of 3/26/17

    Upper and Lower Hasport 72a engine mounts
    Flashpro
    Vit tuned

    Transmission
    Full Acuity Instruments Kit w/ nrg shift knob
    Russell ss clutch line w/ dot4
    CDV delete

    Suspension

    I sold my accord to build that hatchy. Soon became my daily do to un foreseen problems. . Was always running rich and turned out to be a bigger problem then I thought. I didn't have the downtime and needed to pas smog. So set out to get something Reliable while I pull the engine and build it. So what better then the car I always wanted since I was a kid. I'm just grateful to be at a point i where I can afford it. Still all my attention will be put into the hatchy.
    Thanks for all the welcomes guys. Big difference from h-t. Lol. More people friendly.

    Welcome, and maybe having the hatch will help the temptation to mod the new one.

    One could only hope. Pulled the engine this weekend and gonna swap it out with lsd. Also installed the valvetrain and stage 2's and replaced all the belts. Pro series im and should be getting my ecu back Monday. Hopefully. Fukn hondata. With a nice tune I don't see any reason why I won't be in the low 13's. That's in the hatch of course.

    Double negative. Lol

    I had a 92 vx paid $700 for it in 2006 and drove it for 6 years but needed something more reliable for work.

    I bought my vx for way more then that lol. But it was pretty mint. I just wanted it for the light shell but I rode the d15z1 in it for a bit and at worse I got 45mpg. But damn those are slow.

    I know what you mean about slow, lol. I put a d series si trans in it to get a little more speed out of it and was still getting close to 40mpg. Right after i got my '12 accord someone knocked on my door and offered me $450. I couldn't say no.

    So not even a month off the lot and my windshield is cracked. Lol. Just gotta laugh at things like that.

    Like to see the eg love. An Michal. This is the first one Ive built on my own. A lot of blood sweat and tears. Being literal. So I don't see myself parting with it. Unless the right price comes up.

    Ima stop posting here and start an actual build thread. I can't keep looking at the car at stock height.

    Here's my eg today. Ima ride the stock wheels until the tread runs out then putting on some big breaks. Here's a pic. See u in the build section!

    Mods can we move this to the build thread section? It's time.

    Just took her on her first road trip. About 550 miles round trip. It was a blast. She ran absolutely perfect. June lake California. Suggest u visit it sometime.

    My buddy drove a rental. 2 cars down. He left half a sandwich in it and sure enough a bear broke in. Bit the corner of his seat. I vaguely remember him saying " car rental insurance is for idiots". God bless Mother Nature.
