    MessyHonda's B swap

    sitting since September 09 when we pulled the A20 for the B20a



    Look what has been living in my car. I found 5 wasp nests that were empty so it made it easy to work on.

    under the hood-very dirty and dusty



    did a quick wipe down of the engine bay

    Very nice. What axles do you have to use? Custom or off the shelf?

    not hard at all. I used a 95 gsr ps line and just rebend the metal hose to the pump.

    thank you sir. I had the choice of buying a 98 ITR for 5k or spending it on the 3gee. I hope I made the right choice
