As for the rest of the engine mods, this car is going to be a sleeper. So most of the work will be done under the hood. Right now I'm just making a list of parts I have picked out, and things I would like to upgrade but haven't found out with what yet.


Interior:

- 3 pod driver's door side gauge cluster
- Autometer air to fuel mixture
- Autometer vacuum/boost
- Autometer oil pressure
- MAYBE a gauge cluster
- Racing harness
- Gun metal shifter knob

Going to keep it pretty stock though. I love the leather interior of the GSR, everything black. Going to try to keep it pretty clean.


Exterior:

- TypeR trim kit
- MAYBE a body kit but I haven't seen anything I liked yet for a daily driver
- Repainted Honda factory red
- Red or white underbody lighting kit
- Wireless remote fog light kit or stock foglight kit


Wheels/Tires:
- Get my 16in Koneigs cleaned up and powder coated black
(no I won't sell the stock GSR rims)
- nice summer/rain tires


Suspension/Brakes:

- Password:JDM 3 point front strut bar
- Password:JDM 4 point rear strut bar
- Password:JDM ASR subframe reinforcement plate
- Tein street suspension kit with EDFC
- Brembo big brake kit with pads
- Steel brake lines
(do they make upgrades ABS pumps)


Audio/Electronics:

- Upgrade component front speakers
- Upgrade coax rear speakers
- AMP to power the speakers

Sounds like you have a lot planned for it. Reading your plans for suspension, you're wasting your money on Tein adjustables if all you them for is loosening up the ride. Having owned a set for over 3 years now, I can tell you they won't do what you think they will in that sense. The dampening adjustment is to alter the handling of them for track purposes, you won't notice the differance really on the street. Yes the ride will be stiffer when adjusted to the top of the dampening, but I'm certain it won't do what you're expecting it to. When you stiffen up a car, you do it just for that, to stiffen it. Can't have both a stiff AND soft car, just isn't possible. I'd suggest a set of Tein Basics, and then perhaps getting a 1 or 2kg LESS spring rate on them when you order, that way it'll be stiff but not TOO stiff.



Also on the drilled rotors, I'd highly suggest either blanks instead or just slotted (Power Slots). The drills are for looks ONLY and WILL cause the rotors to crack and/or warp very prematurely. That's an almost proven fact. Not worth the look just to replace them every year. ;)



Other than those 2 things, all other plans sound good! Just take what I suggest with a grain of salt, and from someone with experience with those items. Give me a hollar if you want any advice or suggestions, and good luck!!
