LOL I try little by little. Just following my dreams.

Reman +98 Integra Power Steering, no mods needed. Direct bolt on.




My NGK Power Cables were FILTHY from being on the GSR. WD40 cleaned them up nice.




Had this laying around, actually looks really close to the OEM 98 Spec Faux carbon cover.



Feels good to be making progress on both cars.

Block walls are still good, need to be bored. Not sure if to sell or keep it.



Never go full Subaru



Sometimes I like rice



Replacing the Alternator pulley also, used an O2 sensor tool and a 10 mm.

Holy hell that's some high compression :lol:
LOL that's what I thought

Nasty stuff




New OE stuff




Love this tool



IDK, have a feeling the belt is going the wrong direction after I installed



Catch can stuff installed



Stainless steel studs and titanium flange nuts



Hopefully the lower timing cover gets here by next weekend because that's when the engine is going in.

Hey that timing mark tool is pretty neat.

Does the belt direction matter?

Tool is awesome, hate trying to be an octopus. My Greddy one had a timing belt direction, that's why I'm questioning it.

Don't mind me, just taking the transmission for a walk.
