No I mean build specs, not a parts list lol. Like are you staying 81mm or going +82mm? Piston ring gaps, piston to wall, bearing clearance etc....

So itís been a while since Iíve updated, a lot has changed, first off I got another em1, complete running pretty clean Milano red car, it was slammed to the ground on dna coilovers, wheel wells rolled and drove like crap but I got a good deal on it, so it is matching number everything but the gauge cluster was switched for a jdm ctr unit and the car has eBay parts all over it, was tempted to return it to stock and sell it but I have decided to take all of my build parts from the ebp car and put on this shell, and take the stock stuff from this car and put on the ebp shell and sell it, as in the pics from sometime ago the previous owner hacked the blue cars interior to cram speakers all over and I canít deal with it so Iím moving on

are those Ryver si's (15x8 +20)? If so, what are your tire specs? I have those wheels, but didn't care how the fit on my car (stuck out of the fender well way too much). I'm assuming you probably have 195/50/15 and your fenders have been rolled/pulled? I have 205/50/15 and it looks like dog doo... Love how they look on your red Si though!

Correct on wheel and tires and itís been rolled, the car came this way and Iím not a fan of it at all, my buddy club wheels will be going on the red car, the 195/50/15 tires have the sidewalls all stretched, not my cup of tea

So the blue car is for the most part ready to go and cleaned up a whole lot, left some of the parts on it that I had planned on keeping but it is what it is, I also raised the car because I didnít want it bottoming out everywhere I go (WV roads suck) but yeah she is running and driving right, may throw it up for sale on here soon
