I’ve been compiling a ton of pics so I might as well get a build thread going!

First, a little background on me. I’m 38 years old and got my first Honda (1997 EX coupe) back in 1998 and that’s where it all began. Flash forward to 2020 and here is the list of Honda’s that I’ve owned over the years:
1997 Civic EX coupe
1998 Integra GSR coupe
1999 Accord EX coupe
1994 Civic Si hb
1992 Civic VX hb
1999 Civic DX hb
2000 Civic Si coupe
1994 Integra GSR coupe
1992 Civic CX hb
1995 Integra GSR coupe
2004 Element EX manual
1994 Civic EX coupe
2000 Civic HX coupe
2001 Integra GS sedan
2016 ILX A-spec sedan
2008 Civic LX sedan
2000 Civic DX hatch
Needless to say…I’m a Honda guy lol.
My last Honda build was my last s2000 in 2011 or so and that was just a basic bolt-ons, wheels, and suspension. This time around, I wanted to do a full-on build and I promised myself that I would never build another Honda unless it was AWD. I do work in sales at T1 Race Development/ Injector Dynamics so I have some of the best resources around me to take advantage of and to help me take on something big like this.
So here is what I want out of this car:
Stock block K24 turbo (500-600whp on E85)
A/C and heat
mostly full interior (rear cargo area will have the fuel cell in it)
BBK all around
street wheels/tires (no slicks for the track or anything)
I plan on getting it built, dialed-in at the dragstrip to where I feel it’s hit close to it’s full potential in full street trim, and then it will just be a cruiser/occasional highway racer, and I’ll take it to meets or whatever. So anyways, on to the good stuff!
I bought the car July 3rd, 2020 in Tulsa, OK. It was a one owner car in Arkansas for 19 years and 8 months before being traded in and sold at auction with 126k miles on it. I bought it from the guy who bought it at auction, all stock with the exception of some CRZ seats but he also included the stock seats with the sale and even an EM1 cluster that he had planned to install if he kept the car for himself.
Here’s a few pics from when I first got it back home to Dallas after driving back from a few hours from Oklahoma. The car drove amazing and the AC was cold as can be.
I’ll start adding the good stuff shortly!
