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

ROTARY POWAAAAAAH !!!

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 !

ROTARY POWAAAAAAH !!!

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 !

Clean her up! The chassis looks straight and clean, you have yourself a pretty good base.

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.
