My RHD Vtec Monster Build + BOOST

Here's a project my older bro and I recently picked up. Progress is going good. So I decided to make a build thread to share with my fellow CRSX'ers.

Long Story Short: Brothers turbo rsx took a dump. Parted it out, kept the motor. Picked up a 1968 RHD Austin Cooper shell from a buddy that kept it sitting in the back of his shop for 12 years. Condition is not too bad, but we are happy with the shell + it already has an authentic zeemax wide body.

Alot of plans for this.
Stay Tuned for updates.
Page 1 - The Beginning
Page 2 - Clean up and Strip + goods
Page 3 - WOOHOO PRESENTS!
Page 4 - Towed to get sandblasted
Page 5 - Sandblasting done, Spray with Rust Protection for time being. REAR SUBFRAME/COILS/DISC BRAKES ON + Some Engine Goodies
Page 6 - got a nice package..
Page 7 - Front Subframe on. Wheel Bearning, hubs, strut towers, coilovers, etc
Page 8 - video..
Page 9 - Bottom chassis sanded and rust treated + haircut
Page 10 - k24, cleaning and painting the block.
Page 11 - Sanding and Blocking.....FML. more packages (11/16/10)
Page 12 - small update after months
Page 12 - 2 years later...bondo work
the rsx RIP


The Mini

with the subframe conversion it should fit fine. other than that, i had to order a new one piece front clip that is extended 3inches.

maybe try a custom v mount set up, but i don't know how much room you have to work with between the front core support and the bumper
