This was my first Integra, a 1997 GS, in VSM. Had her about a year, then sold it off to fund a GSR.

Here's my GSR the day I bought her in April of 2010. 1999 GSR DC2. 95K on the stock engine/chassis. Only mods were rice tailights and some Enkei wheels. 6K was the cost, probably could have haggled it down farther but didn't because they're getting harder to find low mileage.
Took her home and removed the rice tails for some scuffed up OEM tails and removed the dealer sticker on the back. The scuffs bugged me, so I decided to tint the tail black.
Wheels remained because I was broke, and she stayed relatively stock.Decided I wanted to rice it up a little bit so I grabbed an NRG limited edition Gen 3 Quick Release and Deep Dish Wheel.
Hatch leaks set in, and new gaskets are never the fix, so I weather stripped the tails and leaks stopped:
About a year and a half later we can fast forward to my engine giving up. It started as a stuck valve and turned into a cracked landing. I was forced to either sell, or save and swap. I decided I wanted to keep that original B18C1 so I started saving for an all motor build. I'll list my parts below. After 5 months of saving and whipping an old station wagon, she's at my tuner's for final blueprinting and assembly. Should hit the dyno around April 14-16.

I know this is a quick thread, but I wanted to post it up. More detail and growth will come as it's finished and on the road. Then suspension. This is a purpose built engine, for daily driving and an emphasis on mid to low range on the power band.
