Thought it was about time I made a build thread for all you English speakers as well. So far I've only had one on the Norwegian Honda forums. So here goes!

She's a 2011 EDM GT 6mt purchased in October 2010. I managed to to keep her stock almost 6 months, if you don't count wheels :p Although that was mostly due to it being winter. We've come a long way since then.

Interior:

Under the hood:

Basis Edition GE8 Intake Chamber
PW:JDM Blue dress-up kit
GT Haus Meisterschaft GTC exhaust

Suspension:

Thank you :) I will hopefully have more pictures as soon as this snow clears out, and with all the JDP stuff mounted as well. I have to say I really love that 3rd picture, where you can just see the tires smoking :p

I bet it's just the wind blowing with some sand :rotfl:
Just kidding Varg, i love that pic. And what nice drls you have.
Wouldn't you agree Art?
Hehe, my tires were screaming at me that day. It was so damn hot I slept in the car with the aircon on between my laps.

And stop teasing Art, poor guy. Besides, the LEDs look far better when it's a bit darker :hiding:

All lights are played out and overrated. I hate lights of any sort, but especially on cars. The less lights, the better.

:pP: Looking good though. Was actually wondering about your hood. Is it a 1x1 or 2x2? And are the vents functional on it?

car looks awesome varg! do you have to pay taxes on the performance increases?
Thanks. Anything above 10% increase is taxed exponentially. The increase would have to be proven though.

LOL! ;) The hood is from Revozport. It is a Mugen RR "replica". 2x2 weave on top with UV coat and frp under. Uses OEM lock and the vents are only for show. I plan on modding them so they do work though :)

Hoping to be able to keep up with the BMWs on the track this season. Though they do have some crazy drivers doing most of the work. After last season I talked to some of the veterans and they recommended I go over to slicks. Will see how it goes. Next race is the 29th this month!

Really got to take the car for a ride over a mountain pass this evening, sports mode and revs flying. Great fun! :D I can't help but feel that my brakes are weak though. So I am looking for something to improve brake performance overall, but still be usable with 16" stock rims and not be useless at below 0 deg Celsius weather.

Any suggestions?

Upgrade the pads then? Project MU? Must've been nice taking her out for a stretch i can imagine :vtec:
Was fun. Nothing like playing on mountain roads when the weather is warm and the sun is up. Best part is, I don't even need to break the speed limit. 80km/h speed limit with recommended speed in the turns at 30km/h :thumbup: A bit annoyed that I left my GoPro at home though.

Just upgrading the pads enough you think? Guess that is the cheapest to try out as well. But I will need somewhat durable pads, as I DD the car as well.
