Haha fair play ! I love how you've left the car bodywork standard apart from those front wings, i genuinely think the EK9 in pre-facelift form needs nothing changing :)
just watched some of those videos also, man it pulls hard ! I'm jealous, i wanna play EK9 turbo's haha

Not that much to update really. the car is off the road now till next year :alone:

Went to Cadwell for its last run of the year at the beginning of October. Stuck my te37's on with RSR's and absolutely loved it. Had such a brilliant time, so much more confident with it on the RSR's, dont think there was really anything that passed it all day :) so ended on a proper high!

Footage

had a bit of an off at the start ha, and trying to keep up with corten millers 500hp EG at the end


and another session with less traffic :)

Absolutely love these photos too :nerv: Cadwell is firmly back to being my favourite







Car's covered about 13k miles now and 8? trackdays I think since end of April. Absolutely chuffed with it, its looking a bit tired after all the daily use, it smokes a little bit at low revs but other than that, I dont think I could've had a better year with it! Love my little 9 to pieces :bow: :woot:

Now to winter, I swapped my white ek9 with the boy @StevieG for his daily Dc1 - so he's finally an 9 owner after lurking on here without one for so long :))
I absolutely love this thing. D16zc engine, so rare and ideal for the mileage im doing every week.and its black which just makes it awesome really!


and the 9 is now stripped and with @Beetlejuice for her cage!
Dropped her off on saturday and he's already making good progress on it! It's looking lovely and tight to the car so I'm a happy girl right now!

More cage progress :) still a few more bits to add but I'm pretty damn happy with it so far :D
Went down to see the car as my steering column needs mounted onto the dash bar on the cage, trying out the position and realised I sit really really far forward and my head was fairly near the door bar...so the guys are modifying my pedals so I can sit 400mm further back (surprising difference!) and still be able to reach the peddles, and my arm position feels so much better for my steering wheel too and i'm sat further back in the car which is always a plus for weight distribution! pretty cool and theres so much thought gone into this its unreal!

That DC1 looks well decent for a daily! And that cage is mental. Good stuff all round Nicole.

Car looks great out on the track at Cadwell and the Integra is a very cool daily driver


You will notice a big difference in the stiffness of the car with the cage and its an important safety aspect to the car.. I would be interested to see how the pedals were extended for you if you get any pics... Its always a good thing to move the seat back to improve the weight dist :nice:

Guess I should update this a lil..
More bars added to the cage, aaaaall the X's! :naughty:
Also had a bar added to the wheel well - it's gussetted to where the spot welds where the subframe mount attaches to the chassis too to tie everything into the cage a little bit more :)




And then she went off for paint! While it was there I thought I might aswell get my track wheels fitment sorted and took my J's wings down and had the rear arches rolled to fit too. They STILL dont really fit under tbh, but extra camber will hopefully sort this anyway!



Andddddd home and painted :nerv::run:












Now its back home and I need to work out what im doing with the dash/interior. Also got a new ecu so I can turn boost up now, and possibly add by boost by gear!
Then its just a few suspension changes this winter, new diff in the new year, remap and shes done again for another year I think!

That cage is a beast. Nice idea with the spare wheel well.

Perfect track wheels also! :))
