Re: ickna11's H23A VTEC Swapped EX-L 2k Coupe (Sound Clip)

5 spd swap is almost done.
Just picked up a pair of ion retros from lashlee as well and will be getting a sway bar kit next week!
Pics incoming soon, fair warning previous owner hammered the body.
Nobody seems to like the hood but I think with the right spoiler it will look good, if not good bye hood.
That's going to be the last thing done.

If I had a dime for every time I heard a car say "this is it, then I'm done," I could own a mansion hahaha. Sounds good though. Ion retros? Wow must've cost you an arm and a leg for those. Don't think I've ever seen them retrofitted before.

Well I told myself when I bought the car I wasn't going to spend more than $8k on it.
Pretty sure I blew through that within the first 10 months! haha

Another Washingtonian! :) Are you in the suburbs of Seattle?

I see. Was wondering b/c I spotted a modded black coupe the other day. I think it was running w/ LED taillights, so I thought it could be you. (Was 2days ago in Bellevue btw.)

^ Gotcha. Don't get to see modded 6gens nowadays, so just wondering.

Hey, never mind about the question. I figured those are the all-clear taillights you got from Jordan_H. :thumbsup:
