D2 Coilovers ( may change these tho)

Please. It's a shame to be doing all that and using not only D2's but very well used ones.

This should be an animal when it's built! Looking forward to seeing your progress, I'm in need of a ef injection tank & noticed you've got a brand new one, where did you purchase it any help would be greatly appreciated, cheers.

Heads up on those mounts, they are for LHD I believe, so you need to make a support bracket for the rear mount... at least I did on my set!

I also dont see the kswap harness on your list? Or are you making your own?

You will also need hydro conversion for clutch?

Also need a half rad and custom hoses too.

Easiest place to get used shifter cables is off ebay in the U.S... RSX Type S cables are what you want... loads on there, much more common than DC5.

Good luck with the build.

This will b rather naughty, how you getting on with the conversion? is it true that the K's sit very low in the bay, I really wanted to go down this route but was advised against it as it wouldn't suit me driving style with the engine being so low? if that's true, its a brave route to go down, what with our wank roads!

keep the updates coming, pics pics pics.....!!
