Intro: I purchased the ’97 integra gsr in the winter of 03 I believe, for the sole purpose of daily commuting. I owned a few cars at the time, one of which was my race car; project mandy, 623whp hotrod 93 civic hb and the other my ’68 mini cooper, none of which I can consider a true daily driver.

Anyways, shortly after I purchased the integra I couldn’t resist and the temptations won me over. I lowered it on some nice wheels and converted the car to 98+ itr spec (front end, rear end, full itr interior, etc.) eventually I ended up putting a jdm itr front end, painting it and slapping a Jackson racing supercharger on it.

With all the mugen arsenal, jdm spec parts, and jrsc in place I thought that was it. I’m done. That I thought until a deal of a life time came around. The vicious cycle starts all over again. I had the opportunity to purchase a clean integra running and complete w/ a k20r from a friend that was getting out of the game. Since he barely drove the car after he completed it and I knew him, I knew I was getting a very clean swap and car that I couldn’t pass up on the deal.

The game plan I originally had in mind was just to transfer everything over into my integra. Simple right? Wrong. Since I was already pulling out the swap out of my integra, I thought to myself I might as well do everything right and get the best shit out on the market.

Projected goal of the rebuild is to have a very clean and subtle engine bay; repaint and tuck the wiring and brake lines. I want to also drop a new set of custom wheels. And prep the chasis more for drag race applications. With the help of a few companies (like hybrid racing) and shops I can have the car ready and debut at nisei showoff, in downtown los angeles.

SEMA 2017 was just as insane as every other SEMA event but, for me, it was a bit more special due to the amount of Honda Civic Type R's that went into every tuner/wheel booth in the convention hall.
While I could spend hours writing about all of the cool custom stuff, I will keep this post focused on the Honda & Acura section.

A few weeks ago, we received an invitation from some friends at Honda to visit them at their facility in Marysville, Ohio. While we were in town, we had some time to visit the Honda Heritage Center near the main manufacturing plant. This center is a collection of important vehicles in Honda’s history as well as a reminder […]

It was one of the first of many complete shifter assemblies that we created over the years and is certainly one of the most popular.
