I like Hondas
maybe I missed it, but what front swaybar are you running?


Yolo Whippin'
Stock GSR? There is absolutely no need to upgrade the stock front sway.
I only upgraded the front because i had an accident and my gsr sway was ground down :( went JDM ITR.

This build is dope man, cant wait till were both on track and we can play.


I'm a gearheAd
oh my god again

Beautiful. I always wondered this but does wrapping your intake tube like that actually help against it sucking in hot engine bay air?

Nah, it will just help against heat soak from the hot air radiating around the pipe. Very very minimal. That engine bay shot is actually old. My header is wrapped now too and I have a smaller battery, but I just haven't taken an updated shot.


Lol OEM Cams and pump gas. Curious what it can do if I had a set of cams.
I loved my Buddy Club 4s. I think you could hit 250 with a those. Most likely more with some with other cams, just depends how much drivability you want to sacrifice. I weekend drove those on my 1.9 with around 13:1 and it was fine. It didn't pick up power till around 6800 but from there to 9500 it screamed. You have more displacement so something around that lift/duration should be even smoother for you.

Everything looks great man, nice work.

Judging from how your curve flattens out at only 8k, I'd say something's definitely limiting your air flow. Looking at your other mods it's hard to imagine it's anything other than the cams.

What do you know, fast guy! Also I think you upgraded from a 94-97 RS front sway which is 22mm. GSR stock front sway is 24mm.
I went with the 98 spec JDM ITR 25mm lol it feels pretty good.. but then again.. you like your springs backwards for whatever reason lol
lol im a trend setter with the gangster comment.

last thing homeboy needs is more power lol, he needs seat time over any part out there!
