sweettt, that looks like alot of fun. i loved working on my accord to, it was so easy. you should just take the hood off, itd be out of the way, and a lot easier to work in the bay.

yea i got a friend coming over soon to help me remove the hood...i can't see jack with the hood on...it will prolly come off along with the fenders soon...

Engine:
Seeing as though i am gonna build the motor myself...i figure i should do some upgrades as i go. im not some master engine whiz so if you guys know how i could do it better please provide your info/advice....first thing i was thinking was to lighten and balance the pistons and rods...have all parts cleaned and maybe get the head ported and polished...other than this i don't see much else i can really do...i just want to make it a really reliable motor that will make good power...and if i want to add a supercharger later i could...im hoping a setup like this could put down ~230whp or more.....and of course put it over 300 if a supercharger was installed...but that would be an add on later down the road...

can anyone think of anything worth while i could do to the block itself? or any other things im overlooking as far as upgrades to do when building the motor?

Are you adding forged aftermarket parts or just a oem rebuild of the engine? Have the crank micropolished, knife edged, entire bottom end assembly blue printed and balanced. This would include the flywheel and crank pulley.

well i don't plan on increasing compression of the pistons...so i wasn't really thinking of getting anything forged...but if i did want to be able to add a supercharger later it might be a good idea...at least get forged pistons and rods...cause i might be resleeving the block anyway....

ill have to shop around for shops that would be good for doing the crank shaft...cause i don't know how to really balance that...where as pistons and rods are easy...

and yea im definitely gonna upgrade the flywheel and clutch while im building it...

N/A is best.

Why not just do a J35 block with J32 heads? Those are stupid quick with basic bolt ons.

Add some ITB's to while you're at it and it would REALLY stand out.
