It's life! I'll get over it it's because they gave me a used engine after they blew my original engine up twice for the recall

The money burning begins!
Purchased my first exhaust for the car after owning for 4 years- the FT86Speedfactory x Remark quad tip 3" catback. I wanted so badly to go single exit with the Greddy RS, but I just don't have the exterior swag to pull it off (I'm not even lowered)

With this, I bought torque solutions engine mounts, and new hangers for the exhaust.

I also purchased a new GT3076R with the .82ar housing in 4 bolt 3" outlet. I'll be having VEMS can a new downpipe for me. I still plan to use the cxracing intercooler and manifold.

Spent money on a used car so that I can build the FRS right-






2002 Civic LX in a 5 speed from out west, no rust! It has 190,000 miles and I plan to run it until the odometer runs out of numbers.

More updates when parts arrive, I know everyone loves pix.
Unsure what clutch I want. I plan to get DSS axles and bigger wheels/tires to support around 400whp. Trying not to resolve problems that aren't problems yet though.

Also updated thread title; this no longer could be considered budget by any stretch of the imagination

Do it!! Might as well go all in on that engine. Get all the goodies. Since the transmission is out get the verus carbon synchros.
