Hey guys , what's up?

Some of you may already know me , but let me tell you guys some things about myself. So , my name's Erwin , I live in San Diego California and I am working as a mechanic at my friends garage. I'm all about JDM cars. I've saved up 20000V$ to buy a car and I can say that I'm the proud owner of this Acura RSX-S DC5 , which is 100% stock. I bought the RSX from a friend because he didn't need the car anymore. I bought it for around 2450 V$. I'm planning on keeping this thing as a daily car , but I am going to get my hands on a project car pretty soon , maybe even today , depends how the deal works out. I'm not gonna say what it is so stay tuned.

Here are some pics of the RSX in my driveway :







Thats all for now , wish me luck on getting that project car !

Balance : 20000V$ - 2450V$ = 17750 V$ left

Project seat-time

Well , the deal went really well , and I bought a missile-ish 240sx. I bought this thing from another guy who used it to learn how to drift , keep in mind that I dont know how to drift yet and this car could help me learn, thats why I bought it. Anyway , let me give you a build break down of this car :

-Stock SR20DET
-Custom rollcage done by a nearby shop
-18" Enkei RPF-1 rims with Advan 245/25 tyres
-Stock suspension
-Bride Brix 1 seats ( shipped from Japan )
-Old and heavly used deep Nardi wheel.

Here are some pics:











I bought the 240 for 5250 V$. I'd say it was worth it , though the front bumper and the front fenders dont look too good. I'm probably going to keep them like that for a while...

I also ordered a set of Scale Innovative coilovers for 800V$. They should arrive in about 3 days.

Anyway , thats all for now , I hope you'll like to see how my skills and my cars get better and better. Anyway , cya guys later !

Lookin' missile , but it ain't !

Wassup m'doods , I'm back. This weekend was full of family stuff because it was easter for me ( happy easter btw :D ), so I didn't really touch the garage BUT I've installed the new coilovers I bought for the 180.

Here are some pics :




Oh , I've also took off the bumper and the fenders because they were badly damaged. The 180 looks like a missile now , I'm kinda enjoying its looks...






I've also ordered some goodies for the RSX. Just some good ol' power mods for the K20 : just a Greddy T517Z turbo kit. The kit should arrive by the next weekend or so... Stay stoked !


Enjoy the bonus pic ;)



Cya guys around !

Turbo is the way to go !


Hey guys , what's up ? It's finally Friday and I've been waiting for this day like a mufugga! :))

So , yesterday my turbo kit for the RSX arrived . After about 3-4 hours in the garage , I finished installing the kit , but the engine needs to be tuned now , because I dont wanna blow it up because I still have stock internals and things could go very wrong if I'm not careful... :morncoffee:


Here's a pic of the engine bay :




Oh, also , a buddy of mine gave me some RPF-1s that he had laying around. The rims already had the tyres on when I bought them , though they are a little bit worn , they should hold up for a while. I paid 700V$ for 'em and I can say for sure that they look really nice on the RSX , plus , they'll give the car more grip.

Here's another pic:





Also , my friend hooked me up with some front fenders and a front bumper for the 180. I paid 625V$ for them. Here's how they look on the car :








They look pretty dang good , but I think that the 180 might need to be repainted soon. Maybe you guys could help me pick a color :D


Tommorow I'll have to get the RSX tuned and maybe even dynoed. I wonder how much power it puts down now...

Thats all for now , see ya guys around !

Tuned and ready to kick some ass !


Hey , wassup guys ! So , I've just got home from the dyno and yes , the RSX is tuned now. Here are some pics of the dyno result :







So , as you can see , it now makes 255 hp on 13 psi with stock internals ( I really hope that nothing is going to blow up in the next couple of days... :( ) . I'd say it's enough for my daily needs but hey , you can never have enough horsepower , right? :D


Also , here's some sick pics my friend took :








Ok , so , later today some spicy stuff is gonna happen. Let's just say that I'll buy another car and I'm gonna make it the project car. I mean c'mon , the deal was great and I had to make an offer. :P

I'll keep you guys updated , stay stoked !


Added 1 hour 52 minutes later:

This is what I needed...


Alright , waddup everybody ! So , the deal went really well. Lets just say that I bought another S-chassis. An Kouki S14 to be more exact. Before I get into the story of this car , let me show you some pics :





Yes , I know this car looks really good on the outside , but sadly , the SR20 inside the engine bay has a hole in the block and a big crack in the cylinder head... Very sad , I know.

At this point , you may ask : why did you buy a broken car? Well , let me give you a list of specs :

To be quite honest , I would've installed these exact parts to it anyway , all it needs is a new engine. Should I replace the broken one with and SR or something more.... interesting , like a 2JZ or RB26 or something? I dunno yet.

Anyway , I bought this car for 3965V$. I'm afraid that this might be the last car I buy for now. My wallet is getting skinny and I dont like it...

The guy who sold me the S14 also offered to tow it to my place for free! What a nice guy!

Here's some other pics that I took :





That's all for now , stay stoked , this project is gonna last...

Fuck maneeee , hey , i got a old sr block , with transmission , but without head cylinder , and 2 pistons are damaged , but the block , conrods and crank are good , if u want i let you for free , I do not need it and it is occupying a lot of place in the workshop, what if, the engine is in Japan, you will have to wait a few days until it arrives
So you just have to get the pistons, cylinder covers, camshafts, exhaust, intake and the fuel rail
It's better than nothing
It also helps you to start getting forged pistons, forged rods, other crankshaft, clutch, etc.

Good news , Sad news

Hey guys ! I'm back ! Sorry for not posting for quite a long time , but I got really caught up with stuff and things like that. The updates are gonna be more frequent from now on :)


So , I have good news and some sad news...

The good news first : I will go to the S-chassis meet in Japan. I dont know when , but I'm going to it.

I also completely repainted the 180sx. It looks balla asf right now ! Here are some pics :







Looks classy , eh ? Well its not gonna look so classy when it starts drifting in Japan.

Talking about Japan , I've been thinking for a while and I decided to remain in Japan after the S-chassis meet is over so , Japan , I can't wait to see you ! (And live inside of you ( that sounds really messed up... :)) ))


So , moving to Japan means that I have to ship my cars there , right ? Yeah , so the 180 and the S14 are coming with me !


Talking about the S14 , SHE LIVES ! I recently bought a used SR20 for 1200V$ . It's a DE , but it gets the job done , here's some pics :






It's just a stock SR20 with a TODA exhaust header , nothing special. I'm so glad I can drive the car now !

I also sold the old SR20 for 1000V$. It was a pile of junk , it had a cracked block and a cracked cylinder head. It was not worth keeping it around...

Okay so , I have to tell you guys the "Sad news".

Sadly , I had to sell the RSX. I sold my first car with 6000V$. It was fun having it , but then again , having 3 cars is kind of a big deal...

I'm not crying , just some ninjas cutting onions in my room , thats all... :crying:


Anyway , thats all for now , stay stoked !

○ Well , the time has come. I guess I'll have to start packing if I wanna move to Japan , right ?

○ So , as I said , I want to move to Osaka before the S-chassis meet happens , and after that , just remain in Japan , after all , the JDM scene is much more bigger there.

○ I've already booked a ticket for the flight and I'll be shipping both of my cars there. I've also looked for a garage and an apartment and lets just say that it just so happens that one of my old friends is selling his garage. All I have to do is find a cheap apartment to live in.

○ Also , because the flight to Japan takes about 12 hours , I probably wont post at all tommorow.

○ Anyway , I'll better start packing up my shizzle , see ya guys in Japan !

Hello Tokyo !

○ Hey guys , whats going on ? I finally arrived in ... well , remember that I said that I'll buy an apartment and a garage in Osaka ? Well , while I was on the plane I decided to just say "Fuck it" and go to Tokyo and look for a garage. Long story short , thats what I did...


○ Now , because I decided to change my plan in the middle of the flight , I wont have a place to stay overnight in , but while I was driving I saw this guy who was standing in the front of a garage holding a sign that said : のガレージを販売する 270000 円 ( selling garage for 270000 yen ) ( ~2500V$)

○ I quickly pulled over and translated the words on the sign that the guy was holding. I was shocked that I managed to stumble upon this guy like this !

○ Well , I got out of the car and tried to talk to him via google translate. This was the most embarrassing and weird conversation I ever had with someone.I guess I'll have to learn japanese . (ミ ̄ー ̄ミ)

○ After giving the guy the money , I pulled my cars in the garage. Well , now , there's one problem , where will I sleep ?

○ 5 minutes of walking around in the garage I found a sofa. I sure hope its comfortable , cuz thats where I'll be sleepin...

○ Anyway , enough messing around , let me show you the garage:






There's that sofa that I'll be sleeping on tonight... :))





And here are the cars :






○ Well , this garage has all the tools that I'll ever need and I'm quite hyped to live in Tokyo !

○ Tommorow I'll probably start changing the fluids on both of my cars and maybe even clean up the 180...



○ Thats pretty much all for now , I really hope that you guys are as stoked as I am about living in Japan. Cya guys tommorow !

# radcoon : that is damn cheap for a complete workshop!
But... welcome to the neighbourhood !

I know ! I have no clue why the guy sold it so cheap , I didnt even bother to ask him.
Also , heck yeah my man ! If ya got time , drop by my garage ! I'll hook you up with some good beer !


Starting to pimp out the S14

○ Well , well , well... Let's start throwing some fat stacks at the S14 , shall we ?

○ Nothing special happened today , I've cleaned up my cars and changed the fluids on them , but thats besides the point.

○ I decided to "officially" start the S14 project. I've placed an order on a bodykit , and that bodykit is the Kouki S14 D-max kit !

○ The bodykit contains the front bumper , hood , sideskirts and the rear bumper. *LINK*

○ I dont know if this kit is meant to be wore by a showcar (thats my plan for the S14) but I think it will turn out good lookin'...

○ I can say that I really wanted the S14 to make it to the S-chassis meet , but its far away from being finished. It needs the bodykit , a good repaint , engine swapped , better looking wheels , big wang and overall more awesomeness...

○ I took 2 random pics just because I was bored , here they are :






○The garage looks E M P T Y , but I dont want to have too many builds going on at the same time. Maybe I'll buy a new ride if I can find a good offer , but for now , I need to ... well , this is gonna sound weird , but I have to purchase some things for the garage , because I want to live in it. All I need is a kitchen and a bathroom. Also , that couch turned out to be quite comfy to sleep on... :))

○ Anyway , thats all for now. I think I may be busy for the rest of the week because I need to find a job and all that...

○ See ya fellas around !
