O I like the sound of a VA CRX meet that would be cool, but you'd have to do a goood job of spreading the word.

Update with the coilovers... I ordered the two different part numbers for the tophats, PRH08-31S60 and PRH08-31S70 according to Tein's website one is for the front and the other for the rear. Well they are the same, all the same hardware... So if you are needing Tein tophats, you can order two sets of either P/N.
With one collar taken out and adjusted all the way down, the car sits a little bit lower than stock. Once again, I'm in the market for some coilovers. They are a real nice design, but I would like to be about 2 inches lower than these coilovers can do.

Thank you!

Yes I used the wildwood kit, the cables are looped a little longer between the shell and the tank.

Thanks man, well the Silvia will be at Springfest 6 at the Virginia Beach convention center on June 6th. It will be at the Sumospeed booth.

Yeah that would be nice, depends on when it is and if I'd bring mine out.

Nothing too exciting has been going on with the car lately, I did however receive a part in the mail I've been waiting on for a little over two years, yes you read that right two years. I had chalked it up as a lost cause but my brother hit me up saying I got something in a tube in the mail... Well it was from Hardware909. The billet oil dipstick finished in anodized black. I'll get pics this weekend of it and the slow progress on the car.
I've pulled the TEIN Street Advance Dampers off the car as they do not get as low as I like the car to be. there is about an inch of wheel gap. Where I know that would be "functional" I like to be low, with minimal wheel gap. So my next set of coilovers I plan on picking up are Fortune Auto 500 with Swift springs. They are a great combo and have a set on the Silvia. Great customer service and their warehouse is within an hour distance from me.
I've also run into an issue of little to no fuel pressure. when I turn the key on I can hear the fuel pump prime, then shut off, I then turn the car over where its very hesitant to turn over. I noticed that the fuel pressure was around 20psi when attempting to turn the car over, now its around 4psi... Everything fuel wise was replaced when the motor was dropped in. Hopefully its something dumb and can be corrected easily...

Thank you, they looked very promising and I was stoked to find them when I did, but sadly they aren't up to my standards when installed on the car.

Haven't done much with the CRX lately, most of my attention has been focused on the Silvia. This weekend I wanted to do more but the weather has been straight garbage. Drilled holes for the aerocatch latches and cut holes in the hood for them to mount on the hood. I still need to drill the holes to mount them to the hood but the hardest part is out of the way.

I swapped the tires from the CPR's to a set of Work Meisters I picked up when I was in Japan. They are 16x7+27, fronts have the 10mm spacer and rears are no spacer. They fit awesome on the car.

I don't have any suspension just yet. I had a lead on a set but moved too slow, they sold before I could purchase them.

Well it doesnt matter if you didn't catch those suspension. Btw, car looks really nice, even with that dust on the hood! :bounce:

Is that real carbon?

If you caught in one of the previous pictures in the back vent of the hood you may or may not have noticed something a little different in place of the Skunk2 manifold setup. Another piece I've been keeping somewhat quiet until it was on the car was a set of M's Factory ITB's off a DC2 ITR. They were used and came with almost everything to be "bolt in," I cleaned them up and swapped out the fuel setup for my current and polished up the horns a little. Car fires up with them but I still need to figure out some sensor placement and clean up of the rest of the bay. Overall I'm quite pleased with how they look in the bay, I'll have to get the car re-tuned to feel the difference and cannot wait.

I should have a couple more updates next week :fingers crossed:
Stay tuned...

I should have that worked out shortly, and yes real carbon. J's Racing hood only fiberglass portion is the minimal skeleton underside of the hood.

This past week/end has been busy as hell. I received a few parts in the mail, one of which was a bran new ITR valve cover. Good ole UPS played catch with it and it was destroyed by the time it came to the house :evil: Luckily the seller is awesome and is getting it all sorted out and sending me a new one. Two other items came in the mail as well for it which I'll be sharing in the near future (delivered by UPS and not damaged :shock: )

Josip wrote:Uh, I bet you got some freakin sound from those ITB's. Right? :bounce:

I started the car with them and shut it off, no coolant hooked up at the moment, but they do sound pretty awesome.

One piece I'm stoked to have finally arrived in the mail the other day is my new coilovers. Yes this is the third set of new coilovers for the car, but these are it. Custom ordered Fortune Auto 500 series with optional Swift Springs. I ordered them when I went to their open house meet a few weekends back. Got a little attention with the Silvia there as well :wink:

Image
I should be installing them sometime this week.

And a shot of the two girls together. Beauty and the beast if you will...
Image

I'll be slowly plugging away at the CRX and prepping the Silvia for next month and possibly be re-tuned before then. Still the CRX is on the back burner for attention...

Very nice! That's the setup I'm interested in.

Can you post what rates you got, how the install went, how you like 'em after you've had them on a while?

Am driving right by them in a couple of weeks and thinking about dropping by to discuss what i'll probably be ordering in the spring with them.

Not that its tough to put coilovers on, but I got them in on Saturday.

Image
Image
Image

Cleaned all the dust off from cutting the holes for the Aerocatch latches as well
Image
Image
Image

Awaiting a new throttle cable bracket to be made so I can put that into position for the ITB's.
Once I get the Silvia ready for Simply Clean in FL I'll be back to focusing on the CRX. Getting all the wiring straightened out and preps for paint (whenever that may be)

They are a very nice setup, have them on the Silvia as well, just didn't get the Swift spring upgrade with them. The spring rates are 12 and 8.
Review wont be anytime soon as the car isn't registered and really hasn't been driven in a few years, and that was pretty much around the block...

No problem on the review, thanks for the info. Funny, our cars are fairly similar in a lot of ways. I don't have nearly the engine work you do, but suspension and appearances are kissing cousins. :D

Its loud but without the silencer its LOUD! Still could use an Apexi ECV or something to minimize the flow when needed (passing police, pulling into neighborhoods that are quiet)

Good call on the ECV. Totally forgot about that. Thanks for the input, I think that made up my mind on what exhaust to run.

Back again with a couple updates! Ive been slacking as it seems to be the norm sadly. Not a whole lot of new things but little is better than none. First off I'd like to thank the homie mportedcivicsi(NWP) for the opportunity to purchase one of my dream parts. Never would I have thought I'd sit in one let alone purchase for my own project a Spoon reclineable seat. Only crappy thing is its just one, and I need another so my interior will be complete again.. On to other parts/updates Ive been laying out how I'm mounting up and hooking up my AP1 cluster as well as getting the wiring figured out for it. Wiring is not my specialty and I dislike it with a passion :? I also will be adding a defi display to read things with a little more accuracy, more of that later...

Spoon goodness!
Image
Image

I'm also a huge fan of Vertex steering wheels, I bought my first Vertex while I was in Japan and since have purchased 6+ Vertex steering wheels. My favorite has always been the 10 star and I finally found a blue 10 star for a steal!
Image

Decided to move her from the neglected side of the garage so I have a little more room to work on her. So far I haven't utilized this space to work on it...
Image

Yes, I did cut my Spoon hoses to put in a temp sensor adapter. Why, because gauges are super do'n it that's why.
