Honda Civic / GSR swap! A day working on the Hybrid **56k stand about 8 miles back**

It's been a while since I've posted here on dvdtalk. Just thought I'd share how I've been spending a lot of my recent time. I've sold all 246 dvds and have about 4 now. Went down to Daytona this past weekend for a BIG car show and spring break. We had a great time. Anyhow here's how I spent today. This is day 3 working on this swap..... Got out to the car just before 8a.m. and finished cleaning up everything just before 4p.m.

Pop's laying the oil pan gasket to rest



What it looks like beneath the oil pan for you guys who don't know (It was my first)



Shot of the oil pan screen assembly and I believe the flywheel in the background. Someone correct me if I am wrong



Flywheel (??) up close and personal. Nice sharp teeth even though the color is not that great



Motor installed:









The BEAST that put the BEAST in :P



--Ran 4 different colored 18 gauge wire through the firewall for vtec
--I have to get gaskets to put the OEM piping on the headers
--Install the axles / shift linkage
--Add fluids
--Install the new radiator
--Put the suspension back together
--Install OBD1 P72 ECU
--Wire everything up top
--Install GSR cluster once everything is running smoothly with no CEL's!

Dating Tip #1971: Make sure you have a phat ride. Girls won't let you drive them to your place and bang them on the bunk bed without a phat ride.

Not trying to brag but I am dating a 28 year old hot a$$ girl from work. She knows of my situation and I'm hitting it almmost every night. I like this girl and I know she likes me. I just have to put it that way for you hater!

Oh, and I'm going to see if I can race this baseline Dodge Viper the Pakistans just bought down the road. There's also a Yellow Integra Type R I am looking forward to meeting head to head.

Don't hate biatch!

Street racing? Be careful, don't hurt other people.

Here, they are starting to arrest and fine street racing spectators.

I have to admit, you got more balls than most to show up again after that top bunk lashing lol.

The Type R might not be a stretch, but why would you even ASK an owner of a Dodge Viper to race you? That's just asking humiliation.

I don't race and don't condone it (on the street), but that just sounds stupid to me.

What the hell is baseline?

On slicks -- Mid to High 13's

Moderate mods on slicks -- Low 13's

Glad to see one person isn't being a d!ck!

Biatch because it's true. Everyone at the job wants this girl and most have the feeling I am getting it. I just don't let them know. Sucks to be YOU hater!
