anybody who buys a used japanese engine or imports a car should always know 1 thing, THE PREVIOUS OWNER DROVE THE PISS OUT OF IT!! but thats ok, there honda's they can handle that, it should not bother you, it should make you happy to know the car was appreaciated :clap:

and if it was raced in japan it has forged pistons and rods, cause the factory units would melt with a supercharger if racing for long periods of time...

Thats correct, but the cars are in perfect condition (almost always)

My dc2, track only car came with 120k km and the motor has 225 psi compression :clap:

on one last note about the car being raced, i dont think it was for a few reasons:

-paint on front and sides is flawless
-no catchcan
-stock radiator
-all season tires
-still has A/C and P/S and windshield washer fluid.
-full interior

i think it was taken care of well and maybe taken for a few drags in its life but nothing intense. i would be very happy to own that car :)

The CF bonnet quality is beautiful and fits perfect on the pics! Definitely looks better on the Prefacelifted model!

Get In!....good stuff mate, I like to see Forced Induction...improves the torque by plenty I bet, which is about the only thing needed.

i painted the front of the car it had a horrible aftermarked bumper that was in very poor condition

the tyres i put on also, the tyres on the wheels where the ones from factory, were all cracked so i recon they have been off the car and sitting for a while

the interior is all loose and the car didnt come with speakers i had to fit them

yeah the head gasket is around 3mm think

this ones had a c's ecu but it went missing on the way over so i had to go for something else

vtec is still very loud with me but i guess thats down to mapping

do u know what power urs had?
