I have to say it's very cool to watch this project come together so quickly.

Good choice putting $4,000 rims on your 1990 Honda Civic. That's like Betty White going out and getting her tits done.

suspension - check
brakes - check
dash - check
34mm restrictor / bane of my future existence - check
15" TD rally wheels & gravel tires - check check
spares... this'll probably get us through at least one rally...

:D

yeah, i'm not gonna lie, PPD was a bit like walking into Evo heaven. 4G63's/trannys/etc. parts lining the wall. Built open class evo 4 from the elder years of scca pro rally. evo shells in various stages of rallycross/rally build. very very cool stuff.

@drwrx @cereb daithi - yeah, part of the reason we went with the heavily restricted stock heavy class was because we knew a "basic" build would get us to SS1 the fastest. it's easy to decide what parts to go with when you only get one choice - OEM :P. I'd also like to think once i set my mind to something, i go all in on it, as is evidenced by this project being a full time job outside of the full time job :lol:

We're getting close to the finish line, this is going to be a very exciting week!

Well. The past 10 days have been absolutely ridiculous. We really wanted to have the car ready a week ago, but of course, it's racing, so some pretty significant brake fitment and engine management issues creeped up on us at the last minute. For a while there, things were looking grim, but we finally finished everything at about 2:30am this morning. It's official. This stock heavy evo 9 build is done and as of this morning we're on our way to International Rally New York 2011.

Cheers,
Alvin

It may have seemed long to you, but for us lookie loos, it sure did seem fast.
Congrats and safe speed.
