Hi all,

Decided to start a build thread on here for my ep3 , had previously got an ek civic that I was kswapping but this popped up for a good price so the ek will go into hibernation for a while.

The EP3 needs some tidying but I am getting there slowly ! I will update with more jobs as I progress but following has been done so far
-rear suspension sandblasted/painted and fully rebushed
  • rear callipers fully rebuilt and new pbs race pads
  • tegiwa 24mm adjustable rear arb
  • hardrace rear lca
  • hardrace rear camber arms
  • new rear wheel bearing
  • new abs sensor
  • eibach front camber bolts
  • eibach sport springs
  • carbon dipped centre console
  • full stripped interior
  • boot floor resprayed
  • new tensioner pulley and belt
  • front& rear bumper resprayed
  • headlights split and painted

I will update with spec list at later date but it is a 255BHP k24 frank with DC5 5.1FD gearbox.

How long you had that ep3 for. Looks very similiar to one that used to be around here in england

Very nice car regardless
 
Looks good! Love NT03's, one of my favorite wheels and waiting to find a set in EK9 spec to jump on.
 
Some bits done recently.
Front underbody, subframe and suspension cleaned down and repainted.

Finally got the car to a track day , the reason I got her to begin with !
It went very good with no issues , big difference to my eg6 and turbo mx5 on how the cars just pulls out of corners even when revs are a bit low . No longer stuck behind cars !
The alignment is prob a bit too aggressive as car is unstable on straights . I will try one more trackday with this alignment and make changes after .
The brakes are mega , so much so that the next mod will be a proper harness for the pole position .
The exhaust is very loud so that is currently being redone so I can do some trackdays overseas without being banned!
Anyway one or two pics from the day below .
on route , up at 5am !
