Okay so, I've begun taking apart that B20A that I received a while ago. So far I have ordered an ACT Heavy Duty clutch and lightened Flywheel for it. I've been taking everything off the motor that I can't use and that I will be replacing (all hoses and belts, all gaskets, water pump, intake manifold, exhaust manifold, cam gears, cam shafts, valve springs, etc.)

My plan is for a B20A with ITB's. The ITB's might take a while before they get here...but I'm hopeful I can find a way to get it done.

Here are some pictures so far:

Damn! I am always talking about rebuilding my engine but I am forever sitting on my ass. And its a wonderful thing when a girl knows her way around a car. Most in my town still don't know how to use the steering wheel or brakes!:butbut:

SWEET Lisa!! Nice work!! Looks like a nice place to do your work to! I wish I had a better shop to work in at my house... All I have is a carport with a gravel floor! You can see it in my first two sig pics! :) I do a ton of work there but concrete sure would be nice! Anyway, best of luck and keep us updated!

Keep it on the race springs. I've had the h&r race springs and koni reds on my car since 1999 and its not bad. The streets in tampa bay are pretty nice, take advantage of it :)

Gah, how are you liking the H&R races? 2.25/2.00 right? Too low, just low enough? I've been eyeballing a set for a bit. Hopefully I'll be able to hook it all up soon.

^^^This is BY FAR the sexiest pic I've ever seen of you. :love:
But this is by far the sexiest pic:

Ahhhh... speed, thy name is B20A.

Lisa, two things:

One, is that a Ford Taurus in the background?
Two, what does ITB stand for? Internal boost?

Oops, sorry, three things...

Three, your car is badass. I believe I've said that already but I'm saying it again.
