Hi everyone, been meaning to do this for a while now as I haven't posted a build thread since I first got my EM1 but I've decided to start a new one on my recently purchased Tafetta White EK4 SiR, the car is fairly standard and was happy buying it that way as it gives me more of a blank project to work with to make my own here's a little spec as it sits now and pictures of when I first got it the day after I picked it up.






Little spec as it is now:

B16a engine
Stage 2 F1 clutch and lightened flywheel
Standard intake mani and exhaust mani
Fujitsubo Legalis r catback with decat
Standard EK4 airbox, have an AEM V2 to go on
40mm Lowering springs all round
4x100 Rays TE37 w/ Toyo Proxes T1Rs
SiR Grille
Carbon Bomex spoiler
D2 Lower control arms
OEM Power folding mirrors
EK9 Headlights
Apexi VAFC
Carbon First Moulding lip

Future plans:

I have a rough idea of what I want the finished product to look like, next purchase will be a VTIs rear lip, and I plan on going down the route of seeing how quick I can make the car with the help of bolt on parts:
Inlet mani, exhaust mani, cams, ECU, map, etc.

Chassis wise, I'll be looking in to getting a lower tie bar/brace, probably a ASR/Blackworks brace and a Skunk2 Phi Fifty bar aswell as either a set of MeisterR coilovers or BC racing coilovers for more lows and comfort/practicality.

When the funds come I also plan on changing the clutch, flywheel, possibly gearbox and also try and source a Spoon N1 catback.


A few days after I got the car and gave it a proper look around, I got around to fitting my Bride seats from my old EM1, don't look too bad to be honest but it was a shame taking out the standard SiR interior as it was genuinely immaculate, seats have been kept for the future though because of this fact.

Few pictures of the inside during fitting and when the seats were fitted:

(Honda Access mats still in the car, full 5 piece tailored set)

Another update, few days after that I fitted my Integra Type R strut brace, Skunk2 Alpha half rad and also my Buddyclub Racing spec condenser, slowly tipping away keeping busy.
The usual, few pictures to follow:

Got bored and decided to throw on a few slap stickers I had from before, some people will agree with the look but they're only stickers, so it won't be permanent

Next update is my new Carbon Bomex spoiler I bought, wasn't my original plan as I was going to go with a carbon Spoon Sports spoiler or a Seeker V2 but this popped up first so I had to grab it!



Fitted the next day:

Again, another exterior update, decided to be productive and fit my Carbon First Moulding lip, at first I knew it was going to be a tough job and wasn't going to tackle it but done it anyways, the previous lip was held on with loads of adhesive and took me at least 3 hours to get rid of without damaging the bumper, which ended up happening anyways but not too noticeable, the fact the bumper was freshly resprayed raged me.

Last update for now is some arrival of some OEM parts from Ricky (eternalblue200) on here which was a pleasure to deal with and I will be dealing with again in the future for sure!

I ordered some DOHC Vtec decals to go on the lower quarters, a pair of Jazz washers as the standard jet washers just sprayed onto the top of the windscreen and roof (facepalm) and also a rear wiper delete/bung. Thought it would tidy the car up a bit and everyone loves some OEM/Genuine parts!

Pictures to follow:

That's all I have to write for now, I wrote the part of this in one update so I'm not sure how well it will look but hopefully it's not too bad. This is my first build thread on this forum so hope everyone enjoys reading through this and I will try and update it as often as I can, thanks for looking.
