Power: About 190whp, hasn’t been on the dyno for tuning yet.

What was your first modification?: Changed out the Lowering springs and struts, ITR rear sway bar and OEM rear LCA’s  I purchased the car with for Skunk2 coilovers and LCA’s with ASR Rear subframe brace, 24mm sway bar and adjustable end links.
What was your latest modification?: The transition of my whole engine and bay over the last year and half. Tucked, shaved, deleted and relocated as much as possible and every nut, bolt and washer in my bay on my motor, trans, front subframe and suspension has been replaced with brand new hardware from Downstar/Boltboys.
Do you have any more plans for this car? If so, what?: Air Dynamiks Air struts with accuair E-Level Management is already paid for and awaiting custom install by Steve at Bag Barn in Langley, BC. Upgraded custom audio setup by Mitch at Next Level Audio in Nanaimo, BC, A few color changes over the next few seasons thanks to Connor and Tyler at Coastal Car Wraps here in Victoria.
If you could change anything on your car, what would it be, and why?: The paint on the body. Not so much the color because I love the bright Frost white on Integras, but because it’s the paint I bought the car with 4 yrs ago. There are a couple small dings and chips from daily driving that most people would never notice and I have had bumpers/lips/skirts/wing and bay recently painted so it’s the last thing that needs to be done before I’m 110% happy with the exterior of my build.
Previously owned cars?: 94 EJ1 B16B Swapped Skunk2 certified, 93 EJ6 B16a Turbo swapped
What car would you like next?: I Daily a Pearl Blue 05 RSX Type-S, but I’m currently looking for a White or Blue Hard Top S2000.
As long as I can remember I have always loved cars and pretty much anything mechanical. Grew up around Hot Rods and Harley’s, but fell in love with Imports because it’s what I could afford at the time. I fell in love with Hondas the first time I felt DOHC VTEC in my friends brand new 94 Integra GSR. I have owned 26 different Honda/Acuras in the last 20 or so years and after rolling my b16b swapped EJ1 in 2012 i was on the hunt for a clean GSR shell that I was gonna JDM front swap and paint white. When I came across a clean white JDM front GSR locally after looking at 35 rusty shells over 3 weeks I fell in love. The first 3 summers of driving her I put close to 100,000km on her and decided this is the car I will keep forever and have slowly been transforming her into a showcar over the last 2 years.
