looks good, but like everything else it could be better..

1. Get a 99-00 Si OEM rear spoiler.

2. Get better Rims black on black isn't good on a show car.

3. What no interior plans? :eek ditch the turbo plans and use the money
for interior mods. Recaro Seats, Dash, carpet, steering wheel, pedals, shift knob/shift boot maybe some JDM climate control/goodies will be good.

thanks for dugestion man, Im going to get Si lip and Spoiler soon :). this is definetly NOT a show car, I mstriping the interion. I have no trunk liner or spare ect.

have striped all AC and PS shit. I was planing on geting some nicer seats tho, these suck ass and dont look racey at al. I was thinking black w/ red accents Megan seats(price is best) and some Takata green belts then I would completley remove the back seats for a roll/harness bar.

I have a OEM leather boot butthats about it for intereior. white faced guages and pedals came with car.

your rear drums are fugly(sorry). Get a disc brake conversion from an integra.
i cant wait to get some Takata Harnesses.
I will have a read disk conversion finished tomorow :)

the seats wont snap for sure since I plan on making my own brackets using the stock sliders, 1/4" steel and welding :). takana harness are EXPENSIVE as fuck I think ill go with either impact or simpson. they are proven to work so why not.

yea the brace worked out very well. I was looking around on pasword JDM and EM racing is seling one but not even an H brace just a bar for 125+ shipping :wow . I made mine for 55 bucks and I bet it works better seeing how it ties into 4 places not two.plus its solid no heim joints.

PS: I got the idea from non other then Honda, the Integra R had it in the 98 spec models I belive.
Im calling honda because of how to TQ down the crank pulley bolt, helms(writen by honda) says 14lbs and 90* extra turn, alldata says 130ish ftlbs of tq.

the mesurements are: 37 1/2" for the length of bth of the bars. I used 1" sqare tubing and crushed the ends by using a BBQ grill(look for my other thred I say how I made it.) then after crushing the bar 5 3/4" in fron the edge I drilled a 1/2" hole about 1/2" in from the edge9I drilled 2 so I could move it left/right a little.) then I used the leftover tubing from cuting the bars to length to make the conecting bars(those were 2 1/16" long). then I bolted the two bars down and fully TQ the bolts down(ends will bend a little bit). then I slid the cross bars in(took a tad of filing down) then using C clamps I held the pice about 8" in. I also used a square to make sure verything was nice and square. then I tacked it in and released the claps. Iwelded as much as I could in the car so heat wouldnt distort the bar. then I removed it and placed it in a vice and tightened it down again so heat wouldnt twist it up.

once I finish welded it I painted it x2 and poped the fucker in! I know it has to do SOMETHING why would honda engenires put it in the type R if they saw no promise in it?
