I dunno where to start with this really! Have owned the car over two years and have build thread on another forum so I'll copy most of it and paste it here..

I use to log in here thru my Facebook and did have a few posts but then set up proper account and haven't been on much since then so wanna start a build thread and try be more active as its a great site!

This thread will be solely based on my eg6 h2b. I have owned the car for near 2 years now and when I picked it up it had a b18 gsr engine and s80 box.. A few months previous I was after scrapping a h22 eg that I had because of rust issues.. I kept all running gear and just got rid of shell..

This is it the first day I had her..







Gave it a wash and changed suspension..





Had Regamasters in 5 stud so changed the hubs and put them on..




So yeah that was it for the b18.. Decided to put in the h22 and m2b4 box..








Again another change of wheels and put on a Jun lip..




I'll sneak in a pic of it here beside my daily driver




Now I'm going to skip about 8-10 months.. It was hardship, a waste of money and I so many time thought of just selling up., I bought a turbo kit and a morfspeed h2b no kit.. The kit didn't work out for me and I ruined a perfectly good h22a7 engine.. I wanted to go turbo then but money was an issue so I sold the turbo kit and bought an engine from a euro R.

Then I bought a Plm h2b kit direct from Plm.. Bought a Plm drag manifold at the same time. Got a custom 70mm exhaust made up and got car driving again after been off the road for so long and missing most the drag season!







Got old engine and set up out

And new engine and set up in




Got a custom 70mm exhaust made up, straight from mani back to a 5 ziegen back box (70mm goes right to box, no reduction in size) have no pics tho

Lost a little bit of weight along the way.. Done doors to but have no pics either.. Nice weight savings in a dash and no need for heating so few more kg to be saved there..




Lost back lip because it would create drag.. Drilled holes in front bumper for bit more air to the rad.. And yes I'm very worried about them dents on the wing






Got the car mapped today, by A.p Performance aka vtec6000 on the forums





Got it to the last drag day and after all the work I put in to get it there I had issues on the day changing gears.. Had to change gear atleast 500 rpm from limiter and even at that I could try and jam a gear, had to do it real slow.. Done a 13.36 on the day iirc and came 2nd in my class.. Beating Matino in the semi only to lose the final after doing the hard work! :farao:

Brought it back to the shed after that day and put in some more hours on it.. Changed clutch and put in solid shifter bushins.. Gear problem gone!

Then thru word of mouth I heard Kinger had lost the plot and was selling his cp035's because he was breaking the teg.. I made sure to snap them up before anyone else got the chance.. Sound man do deal with, took deposit and held them for three weeks till I got all the money together..



There a nice size.. 15x7's all round

That done me for a few weeks.. Then it was time to start getting ready for Bishopscourt again.. I thought I had fook all to do.. Fix the rear Calipers and had to get my manifold welded because original welds cracked!!


Then doing the usual hunt for parts on the web I was fortunate enough to stumble across a link for these..

Awesome sizes.. 15x7 and 15x7.5 with an offset of 34 in Ubber rare 5x114.3 fitment!

So back to the shed and try them on the eg.. Needed to space the wings on the front to clear them good enough..





Thought about selling them but there f**king class looking on the car so think I'll keep them.. Two fairly decent sets of wheels to have for a yoke that spends 360 days of the year in a shed!

Got it up to Bishopscourt again today anyway.. Conditions weren't good at all and I only done 4 or 5 runs before it started to piss rain.. Done a 13.3 flat which will just have to do me until next year.. I'm happy enough with the 13.3 today tho considering the conditions and I know I'll get a lot more out of it!

So this is it for another week..



Few plans for it over the winter so I will start stripping it down shortly and get to work on it.. For the past year I've been undecided what I wanted to do with it.. Weather I could fully commit it to been a track car or have it as a road going track car.. Having only drove it further away than 10 mile from the shed once in a whole year I think its time to fully commit it to the cause...

Few pics taken by friends..


















Ok so that's it.. That's where she's at now..

Quick spec would be:

H22a euro R engine, unopened

Blox v stack on 3" intake arm

Plm drag manifold

Custom 70mm exhaust from manifold back

Mapped on Neptune making 238bhp and 181ft lbs torque

Itr flywheel

6 puk clutch

96 spec itr gearbox and linkage with solid shifter bushins

Cusco zero 2 coilovers

Spoon rear strut

Carbon Kevlar Recaro SPG

Carbon.. A lot of it! Looking for doors and wings if anyone knows of any!

Some of you may follow me on Instagram.. Garage_P is the page name.. It's basically just a page for a group of friends with the same interests. I try upload pics daily of the cars we have.. 3 jdm integra type R's, 4 jap eg6's from b16a to h2b, a jap ej coupe with b18 and a turbo jap eg9..

So.. Looks like I've neglected you's for awhile! Wonder what the limit on pic uploads per post is cause I have plenty! Where to start tho!!

Done very little with the car over winter and then went mad the past 2 months working on it evenings and weekends! Have done a track day in Mondello and a drag day at Bishopscourt.. Track day was 28th of February and drag day was 23rd of March! Now I knew last November when I parked car in shed that it was mechanically fine so I didn't want to go doing any engine upgrades till after the track day which didn't leave me much time to get ready for the drag day! But we got it all done in the end!

Ok so we'll start here then..

I spaced out my wings and cut the bottoms off them.. Looks and brake cooling been the purpose..



Got the inside painted..







This was 2 days before the track day iirc, I got a poly bush kit for it and changed all fluids





Few other bits I done were more weight savings, plexi windows and new tyres.. 888's for the back and rb5's for the front..

Here she is ready to be loads morning of the track day,





And a few on track











It was first track day and I enjoyed every minute of it.. Car performed very well on track for me all day.. Just before lunch the exhaust manifold cracked on one of the runners.. It had been repaired before so it was no surprise tbh.. Well I didn't let it stop me and kept at it.. Ha this was the end result



Ah well!

Ok so now let's do march, hard to believe its only the end of March and so much has actually been done on the car..

So there wasn't much time after the track day to get engine out, taken apart, put back together, back in car and mapped before the drag day but we love hardship so gave it our best shot!

Here is my engine stand :( I really need a proper one



Crank case dropped off to change the dowels for the balance shaft delete kit I was installing. Only thing is I was missing the dowels that were meant to be supplied with the kit and didn't have time to wait for some so I made my own.. You can see em in background of this pic



Then these bits arrived and were to be fitted, super tech valve springs and retainers and rdx 410cc injectors, adapters and plugs.





No need for a valve spring compressor when you have a good selection of tools..



Here it is with everything installed, balance shaft delete, manual tensioner, new cam gears, timing belt etc



Engine and box back together.. Note the front of the block is cut.. I noticed last year even with thread locker the bolts holding gearbox to adapter plate were coming loose.. I eliminated that problem by drilling thru the block from a gearbox hole that was already there.



Next was some dyno time. And when I say some I mean a lot.. Went down on a Saturday to get my car mapped and didn't get home till 3:30am the Monday morning! We had a few issues and then manifold broke and needed to be repaired.. For anyone that knows Aonghus you will know what his customer support is like, for anyone that doesn't, it's incredible.. How many tuners/mappers would stay in there shed until 3am on a Sunday morning, start again at 10am on a Sunday and stay at it till 11pm on a Sunday night to get a job done? I wouldn't think there is many!





That was the weekend before the drag day. Then I needed to buy some 4x100 hubs and put on my drag wheels.



Then I gave it its first wash in months.. Since last year I think!



I bought fibreglass doors but they only arrived the Thursday and racing was the Sunday so never got them fitted.. I'll have them in soon tho. They are incredibly light!

Now some random pics by me and others.. All watermarks are left in any pics they should be and credit to those photographers!

















And the most important bit right?




Absolutely delighted with how I got on. Car was flying, manifold broke again.. Haha! Was using an s80 from a 98 spec which had a short 4th and 5th and my tyres were only 23" so I had to use 5 gears in the 1/4 which no doubt had a big affect on my time having to shift the extra gear! The surface is also pretty poor and it's very hard to get a good launch. Like 2 second 60fts are awful but would be just normal on that strip! I am going to hit the pod in May and I hope to improve 60fts a lot and change tyres to 24.5" so I should be able to trap up to 118mph and get my time down in to the 11's hopefully.,

That's me up to date now.. Hope you's enjoyed reading and the pics.. I must go to the shed now and start to set the car up for may!l

Jesus it's been awhile.. What have I done since the last update,, where do I start.. Cars been pretty consistent thru out the year for me..

After doing pretty good times in BC in March I brought her to the Pod in May setting my best 1/4 mile time at 12.05.. Came back and made a few changes and went and done a 12.1 in BC in June to become Ireland's fastest NA car.. Done another drag day in July but it was wet so only done one run and it was enough to win out my class with a time of 12.5..

Ordered custom exhaust manifold for it and got a custom inlet manifold made for it to.. I'll try root out a picture here.. Got impatient waiting on the exhaust manifold so took a spot for Baz's track day on 22nd of this month.. Bit of work in getting the car changed back from drag spec but it's mostly there now..

Changed hubs to 4x114.3 so I can swap wheel between this and the dc2 now.. 282mm discs up front with some atr twinpot calipers and EBC yellow stuff pads. The backs are just left standard. I removed the cable handbrake system sometime thru out the year and now rock a hydro one..

Put back on my cut wings, rear bumper, wipers. Still need to do dash and passenger seat and few struts.. Also bought fibreglass doors earlier in the year.

Rocking some ce28's on the front and te37's on the rear for the track day :afro:

Pod prep in May



In the pod





Hydro set up.. Ran all new copper lines too.



Weighed it in June.. Anyone care to guess?



This is the inlet



Then I went and upset a few people by doing this



My car was faster before I done it so don't use it as an excuse :winks:

That's us up until he last few weeks where I've been rooting at the teg as well..



Fully under sealed.. Absolutely everything removed from underneath.









And somewhere along the line I picked up this



Does the Job nicely as a daily. Getting about 550-600kms to a tank and takes me 2-3 weeks to do them :smiles:
Then got sent final images of my hood exit manifold on Wednesday! Looks Ace.. Can't wait to get it
