    why not BUILD the bottom end for boost?
    yes you can hit 250-300hp on stock bottom end, but for how long?
    i can tell you know once you fell 300hp youll be wanting more,
    just some food for thought.

    yea derek spent about 5+ hours on my rx7 couple weeks ago. it had never been detailed real good during anytime i owned it so it needed it bad. took a lot of dirty yellowish out of the paint. the whole car turned a a lighter shade of white. he did a good job.

    I actually buffed the lancer one evening, it had never been badly neglected, but it had been a while since it had some treatment and still came out really well.
    black is always fun to do.

    The reason we dont is because that 300whp mark is really all we want, thats plenty of hp to have fun with in a honda. And theres plenty of honda guys that make that kind of power for years and years. Anything more is when you rly do start having to build this build that, then on street tires all u do is blow the tires off thru 3rd/4th gear. And when u make a lot of hp in a honda, you lose drivability and we want a fun street cruiser BUT! like i said, if the car ever gets to the full drag car point, itll get a built motor, and the motor will be more than just an LS.

    updated pics after the buff:








    At this point, the car needs a set of wheels lol. What i rly want is a set of bronze konig heliums. I said not to buff the hood, as itll be getting a new hood here soon. It also needs a clutch and flywheel, motor mounts, and the new motor to go in.

    dr-20's would give it a classy look.

    IMO, slipstreams in flat black cant be beat on an old honda.
