haha. well since i just hit 220,000 a couple days ago. i plan on doing a build and a rebuild. at the junkyards, tehy have 50% off days where everything is on sale. heads are just $20!!!!!!
pick up a good head. clean it up, built internals (bisimoto parts haha), etc. and slap that on. yeah i figured all motor might not be a good investment powerwise. but i want my motor to last forever. i want to do something original or something that not too many people have. everyone and their mothers has H's or boosted stock motor. i dont know many people with just built b1's.
and if i get pulled over/need to smog again, my extra head (which will just be rebuilt with all oem honda internals/specs) will go on.
either way. im gonna have to build my motor... boosted or not. 220,000 im doing more research on turbos. im looking into making legal kit.
we shall have to see. maybe i might even eat my words. and just drop an H in hahaha. depending on which one looks more fun to do, and finances.
but dont worry guys. i wont disappoint. ill keep you guys interested. ;]
we need some bewbs in this thread!!!!
i will have this girl model for my car!
oh yeah.. car related: dont waste what little money you have on that mess. just turbo it. Go and find an F23 block (98-01 4 cylinder) and have it sleeved and get some turbo pistons. Find an OEM crank and have it micropolished. Get some sick rods. Snatch an extra pan and have a fitting welded in for your turbo's oil supply..
Then get the B1 head and go to work. Bisimoto turbo cam, full headwork (springs, valves, etc..) That thing will dragonrape most built hondas at a fraction of the price. I believe this is the exact build that Skaterdudz is doing at the moment.
Honestly it will probably be around 5gs all said and done. Personally, I would just build the block and slap on a stock head with some ARP headstuds and call it a day.. You will still be pushing 300whp.. and it will prettymuch be bulletproof.. Now im not sure if an F22A head will go onto an F23 block, but I think that the F22A vtec head has better oil flow or something as Bisimoto claims... However I would probably stick with the B1 head, built F23 block, headstuds, and turbo of course..
haha dont worry man. the idea crossed my mind. but its hard here in cali. strict smog rules. and especially down here in san diego... it super strict. we have some sort of "operation crackdown" or some bs they call it that is a government grant i think they gave to the police to help stop illegal street racing/import scene.
i remember last year. we used to have meets over here at a local in n out. idk if you guys have it over there? its like a super delcious healthier version of mcdonalds. fresh burgers/fries. anyways... we used to have a meet in teh parking lot every wednesday night. 100+ imports there every night. we have our rules no burnouts etc. keep it legal. and ever since the one big ass raid (thank god i didnt go that night) where like 30+ cop cars came from all over to rain tickets on illegal modifications to everyones cars. taking pics of engine bays, whipping out measuring tapes, measuring how low.. etc. ever since then, people are scared to come out at night. cops pulling people over asking to pop hoods due to probable cause (i thin you have illegal modifcations) BS.
i would do a nice swap build turbo. but its just too damn risky here in my area. thats why i want to have something clean... something uncommon.... and something LEGAL. (for now.. just waiting for all those cops to settle down and die out)
but who knows? maybe ill surprise you guys with whatever i have under here. haha
yeah its pretty bad. i get tickets with my car parked infront of my house. "no front license plate. japanese license plate. front tints. rear license plate obstructed (WTF? it says I <3 JDM only cus its jdm). modified exhaust"
all that stuff. but i fought the license plate frame and the modified exhaust. technically its legal. because i have carb legal stuff and stock cat. everything after a stock cat is fair game. and its lower than 93 db. but yeah. cops patrol and give people tickets like nothing for "illegal" mods. psh. my car is technically legal. just the tints, ride hight, and license plates thats all.
whatever. maybe i should move back to japan or something. :salook:

havent posted in a while
im actually in hiding haha. i got surprises for you guys thats why. im laying low. havent really posted on hs, gen5, etc either. but anyways. right when i got back from the philippines i washed my car, detailed, and went to a shoot with a couple dudes.
lol there were like 6 of us and we all had our cams out. im too lazy to post mine haha.
Though I do like your craftyness, I feel like the stiches really take away from the cleanliness of your car.
I think what Im trying to say is, Buy a new lip cheap ass!
I didnt know you went to the Philippines? My dad is Indonesian. That gives us even closer of a relation. I knew we were bros! lol
haha i know im cheap.
actually. im not really. i have something up my sleeve like i said. haha. just a couple swapped out exterior parts. ill give away one. how do you feel about ganador mirrors? a local cat is selling me his set for really really cheap. and its one of those prices that you cant turn your back on. ganadors yes? no?
haha brother! indonesian? thats cool haha. yeah i was in the philippines for about 2 weeks aug22-sep5 thats why i was sorta MIA. my grandpa passed away. but yeah. im sorta done with the tears. never cry for a death, but celebrate the life.
if i get good opinions on teh ganadors, i might pick them up. because i dont like the mickey mouse ears our oem mirrors create.
That sucks about your gpa. Sorry bro.
The mirrors.. ehh.. Im not a fan of aftermarket mirrors so Im not the one to ask.
Check out that mirrors thread on HS posted by scanless.
I really like how the 7th gen mirrors look with the turn signals. I would get those if I didnt already have a set of powerfolds.
If the mirrors are cheap cheap like you said I would pick them up and try them out on your car and if you don't like them than you can always make a little bit of money off of them
^^thats what i was thinking but for my tastes, i dont like the mickey mouse ears haha.
i saw that thread thats why ive been sitting on the fence about this... oh well. we shall see ;]
I dunno man, im not much of a fan of those mirrors.
Try em out, but id try and find something more unique... I agree with the 7th gen mirror retro... those look SICK.
thanks for the opinions guys. what about some f1 styles?
i believe the actual ones are fake cf. so ill just be painting these. or if they are actually real cf i might leave it.
for reference (similar style):
