    I would advise you to not worry about name brand this and that, and I'm not sure what your automotive skill level is, but your better off doin an LS/Vtec if your looking to build the bottom end and then turbo that with a more streetable turbo (no bigger then a GT30) and thats even pushing it. No offense, but you seem to be building a Gran Turismo car or something. Consider that your looking to drop almost 25 thousand dollars into a $1,500.00 car

    I would prefer 15" to 16" the biggest on a CRX. Any VOLKS woudl do!

    Yeah the K series swap is the hottest thing now, however getting a GSR engine may be more cost efficient for you.

    Well, it seems like you have the money...so, why not just do a K-swap?

    ~Your Masterpeice~


    I think that your to do Parts List is Very Impressive but If your Going for Magazines you should stick to a Theme~ :)

    Since your getting a Full Mugen Body Kit I would Go with the S1-R Mugen Seats and Mugen NR Mirror Face, 15s is Perfect~ Also with Paint you should Stick with Honda Codes but Look into Diffrent Models Like NSX or S2k or Even Pilot, Ridgeline or CRV there Colors are Amazing also with Extra Pearl~ :rocks:

    Looks like the Mugen NR Mirror Face wheels will not fit over the brakes grrr.
    If it comes down to it I might just use spacers lol... dont want to tho.

    I realy like that seat but if I can get sparco to give me some seats or a real good brake I will do that.
    Come to think about it the mugen seats are not a real hi end seat in real racing.

    For paint I was looking at the red that was for the sir2.
    But still looking at black or candy red.

    Thanks for your ideas will keep them in mind.
