Nice launch! I can see that MFactory LSD going to work for you. I can't wait to run with mine!

I think I misunderstood your motorsport interests when first posted, sorry about that. I am obviously a drag freak, even though my car is probably better equipped for the mountain roads and road racing.

Looks like a solid compression boost N/A build. Are you going to stick with OEM valve retainers and keepers?

I love the Pacific Northwest and most people don't realize how beautiful Eastern Oregon really is, I took a drive today about an hour east of my home address and this is the scenery I enjoy.

Absolutely gorgeous country. It surprised me how different Oregon looked than what I pictured in my head previous to going there.

Beautiful pictures.
This is a wonderful build, really jealous of the car to be honest.
I am really surprised you stuck with the F22A, though i like that you did.

Yeah but the melting snow washed away most of it, along with the red gravel. That and these are back roads that are rarely used so ODOT doesn't really service them.

I have to say along with Ronald Type R's old Prelude this is an awesome build.



Definitely cool to see you stuck with the single cam as well.

Thank you!

I actually have some of Ronalds old parts on my Prelude, his car definitely influenced mine.

Picked up a used set of Direzza ZII Starspec's for $200 on craigslist!



Running a 225/45R17 up front and a 215/45R17 in the rear, offset size because my current 225/45's rub in the rear on hard cornering so the smaller diameter should keep that from happening.

A few photos and update:
















Soooo basically I redid the front steering and suspension, new tie rods, ball joints, sway bar bushings, end links and etc. Installed a rear spoiler to help with high speed cornering and fight lift off oversteer. Also put the ZII's on and got a fresh alignment. Took it out for a weekend of street testing, and ultimately crashed into the side of a mountain.

It drove so perfectly and felt so good, but I was one a less than ideal road that was paved with what seemed to be river rock making it very slick and well came around right hand corner, rear end slid out, I powered out of it but the tire grip caught so hard that it threw the front end direction to the left and I ultimately nose dove into the side of a mountain facing the direction I came up.

Just some core support and bumper damage but......... in the end I made the decision to part the prelude out and pursue a street build with a different chassis rather than repairing and retaining a track car that I push on public roads.

Yes it is! Good eye!

Here is the new build:

RS?

Ever since 1999 or so when Gran Turismo 2 came out, the GC STi has been a dream car of mine. I wouldn't mind doing up one of those RS coupes like a 22B - there are replica fender flares out there!

So many cars, so little money...
