Time for a new build thread. I picked up a bone stock 96 4 door gsr for a good deal. Bought it from an older lady who had it 9 years, she was the second owner. I'm pretty sure she never even engaged vtec in this thing lol. This car is the perfect base for this build. I was originally looking for a clean EK coupe to build and had a couple deals fall through. When I saw this db8 I jumped on it. Its so refreshing to see a car that hasn't been messed with by some ricer kid lol. Goals are just a fun street car with a good power band and traction. Only looking to make ~350whp on a stock jdm gsr with arp headstuds. IMO this is a good amount of power for a street car, but not so much that it's constantly breaking. This isn't exactly going to be a daily driver, but it will see a lot of street time. I already ordered a jdm gsr swap from hmotorsonline with low miles so I'm going to swap that one in with arp headstuds. The original gsr is coming out and will be getting build after I get bored and want more power.
