My OE Big Brake Kit is now complete:

- Acura RL Power Slot 11.8" Drilled/Slotted Rotors
- Acura Legend v6 Dual-Piston Calipers - Custom Teal Green
- Acura RL Caliper Brackets - Custom Bright Silver
- Acura Legend v6 Power Slot Ceramic brake pads
- Apex Stainless brake lines

This setup should provide a much improved braking performance for this van.

Cooling system done!

modified Mishimoto Radiator, Slim Fans & Fan Shroud, Silicone Hoses. Also powdercoated the brackets and swapped in new rubber bushings.

I'll be upgrading the stock transmission cooler soon with a better aluminum one, as the factory radiator has provision for trans cooler built-in that the mishimoto does not offer.







Stock 2 Ply hose v.s. Mishimoto 4 ply hoses

I scrapped the garson seat covers I was going to use in favor of these custom ones.

Black Alcantara centers, Black Leather side panels & Garson Vega material across the seat backs.

And getting the seats back from the upholstery shop. These seats look and fit better than the originals. They also added in extra foam to the seats, and did the perimeter in french stitching

Genuine Garson Vega leather inserts..


Genuine Alcantara centers - no fake suede here.




Dressed up with the matching Garson Vega neck pads

Wow that's crazy! I actually saw this car in person...well sorta :p. It didnt have a front bumper on it and I was in the opposite lane if traffic but I saw it HA! Congrats at showing it a SEMA!

I know you have a ton of time and dedication into this build but do you ever drive it or is it strictly a show car?

And the build takes another turn!

Thanks to JDM Engines Corporation, we now have a fresh JDM H23A DOHC VTEC "Blue Top" engine to get this VIP Odyssey some much needed power. 197HP / 163TQ. More pics soon.
