Hello all. Today I have registered on this forum for advice from others with a passion for Acura Integras. I purchased this car in 2002 for $1500. It had 163K drivetrain miles on it when I got it (now has 223K). The motor has junkyard pen markings on it and I'm unsure of the actual engine miles. I've not checked its exact number, but 95% sure its a B18B1 JDM motor. It has a Greddy Evo2 cat back exhaust, some busted down shocks and lowered springs and a cheapo cold air intake. I have simply fallen in love with this car over the years. It's fast enough for me, handles well and most importantly FUN to drive!
I'm not into buying some new car that I can't work on and enjoy fixing my own stuff. (I restore Triumph Spitfires, so I am fairly handy with a ratchet
) I've decided to restore this Acura to be a "high performance" daily driver. The brakes have been entirely replaced (calipers, rotors, pads). Step 2 was to do the suspension. Components installed- Tokico Illumina 5 way adjustable shocks and struts. H&R sport springs with .75" drop. Energy suspension Poly Bushing master kit + trailing arm bushings. Blox camber adjust kit. Currently, i have replaced the entire rear and will do the front in the spring. Removing bolts that are 15 years old was quite the undertaking...soak, soak, soak in PB Blaster kids! I've learned this the hard way. Removing the suspension bushings was not so bad, just takes a blow torch and some patience. Anyways, it took a few days and lots of hard work. All bolts torqued to spec, wheel wells were coated in rubberized undercoat and painted, and all parts cleaned before reinstalled. A proper job, but seems I cannot post pics...because I am new to the forum?
