    Can't sell it. Tried but couldn't let it go. Sold the EG instead.

    Also after a lot of back and forth I decided on a build and started buying parts:

    Should be around 400hp, keeping the RT4WD.

    The rotors and pads were both EBC. The rotors warped rather quickly though so now I just have a set of brembo blanks on.

    Full parts list below:

    D16Z6 head
    D16A6 block
    Speedfactory no-notch Vitara piston/rod combo 75.5mm pistons
    Golden Eagle block guard
    ACL bearing kit
    ARP headstuds
    Cometic 0.30 head gasket
    Bisimoto 2.4 cam
    Supertech valve springs & retainers
    Supertech valves +0.5mm
    Supertech valve guides
    Supertech valve stem seals
    AEM cam gear
    RC 750cc injectors
    Walbro 255 fuel pump
    Hondata S300 v3
    Rebuilt VC
    DSS front and rear axles
    Ebay turbo kit
    Edit: RC Autoworks exhaust ramhorn manifold


    I haven't ordered the turbo kit yet as I want to read some more reviews about the best kit. Otherwise everything else was ordered today. I'm going to be working on a wire tuck as well and might spring for a rywire D-series engine harness, but not sure yet. I've called to ask them some questions about using an OBD0 block and an OBD1 head and if I would need a custom harness but they haven't returned my calls yet.

    Edit: I also ordered a rear wing from a 91 civic si. Gonna work on fitting that as well.

    That seems to be the general consensus among friends as well.

    I do have an old plate off my BRZ which is AIM4APX. Thinking about throwing that on too.

    I also added a Golden Eagle block guard to the build. I was going back and forth on adding one or not, but their design seems to have no drawbacks.

    Still waiting on rods and pistons from Speedfactory. Originally they were supposed to be in at the end of November.

    All the other parts are now in the garage just waiting.
