Time to derice and make it nice. Pretty certain you can find seats on WI craigslist if nothing pops up for IL.

The bodykit looks like burning.

Very nice. Good to hear you're going to de-rice it. Wheels are pretty badass, so that's a good start.

I get a stock front and rear bumper, new exhaust or better muffler and some integra gsr seats. All should be able to be found cheaply. I had a cheap pacesetter catback and I hacked the tip off and put a turndown. Didn't sound ricey and looked stock.

Honda-tech will be your friend but shit moves fast over there. I don't know if crx bumpers will fit but the people over on crxcommunity.com are less ricer and pretty nice.

Autozone, cherrybomb muff, stock tails, and crx/si front clip.

D15b, nice little pickup, it's essentially a slightly more stout version of the d16z6, like 4 more hp, and .1 less displacement

Oh, and figure out what trans it has, the vtec motors suck chunks with the wrong gearing. (and check the head stamp to see if it matches the block.)

the head stamp is P08-1, trans i will find out today when i do an oil change, and sorry but the rear bumper and side skirts have to stay as then are molded into the body and i dont feel like gettin the entire car repainted lol, front bumber will be gone soon enough

I know what you mean. If I fold the rear bench down in my Gremlin I can fit a lot more than I would be able to if it were a Hornet with a trunk. I'm a sucker for hatchbacks and some kammbacks. I've been trying to find a nice VW Rabbit Mk1 for a while now.

Id be willing to bet that rear bumper is gonna crack where it's bondo'd in. I've never seen one last.

Ditch the exhaust and front bumper an you're golden. Or turbo it and leave it as is cause then you'll get races all the time :rofl:

Like I stated I had a cheap pacesetter catback on my crx. I hacked the tip off and put a turndown cause it looked more stockish. It was a 2" system with a turbo muffler. Sounded quietish and not ricey like fart cans. Or just hack off what you have and put a turbo muffler on.

Thats very similar to the stock CRX bumper, so again, just find a CRX front end and call it a day.

*stock front end with fogs*
