Very excited about my new motor.
Congrats,back in Type-R
Never driven one but heard only good things about it and that is much faster then my 2.4
Thanks Zoran, Im planning on keeping this one and restoring it.
I've already replaced the battery for my Honda one I had lying around the workshop.
Lethal car! Best of luck, keep her between the ditches!
Nice purchase Chris looking forward to the resto threads.
Cheers guys, I've just put the original stereo back in also. It had some silly silver thing that looked naff.
Very nice always liked these but never got round to owning one
Zoran, I have driven one, as my cousin has one and I can tell you that it is definately quicker than our 2.4s. Its got old school VTEC, sounds mental at full throttle.
Hondavtecr, congrats on the new purchase. It looks just like your old one huh
Thanks dudes, this one is a facelift my old one was a pre. It has syncro problems in 2nd and 3rd, still drivable though.
I've already sourced a gearbox ready for the swop. Might do it tomorrow night if im in the mood.
My black one was a beast, this will be a power house when im finished with it!

Black ? For some reason I thought you had a Silver one. Must have been thinking of someone elses.
No mine was nighthawk black, i'll post some pics up when i can. Im using chrome now to see if that helps when i upload pics.
First thing I've had to do is sort the horrible flaking rocker cover out. I've removed it and gone mad with the wire wheel but its getting sand blasted tomorrow morning to completely remove any of the old paint. I've also ordered some wrinkle red paint to repaint it and get it looking brand new.

I'll have a go myself first and if it doesn't look good enough i'll send it to be done.
