Im probably going to get a lot of guff from everyone..lol..but..It's a 1992 Acura Integra GS-R, I cut it in half a while ago..picked it up running great from my buddy for $500. I only wanted it for the motor, Im putting it into my Civic. For a 1.7 liter honda it actually makes ok power, 170 horsepower 120 ft lbs. I plan on rebuilding it and running a T3 Super 60, just want a fast spooling turbo with streetable power. I want to make around 300 to the rollers.

Thanks for the compliments, guys. Yeah i stole my brothers taillights for the time being. We have to do a bunch of work to that truck..Clutch, balljoints, brakes, few other things before he starts driving it again so I snagged up his taillights. I think he's going to the 07 style anyhow, so I'll probably just end up keeping these. I was almost considering painting my truck that kind of blue. It's the same blue that GM used on the Corvette Grand Sport.

Anyhow, time to go tuck those inner fenders.

I just want some opinions, if you guys don't mind. These tires are 36x13.5.16 SSR IRok's which are really closer to a 37. I was kind of thinking that I would be able to run some BFG all terrains (35x12.5.15)..they would work out to being almost 2" shorter. The way i figured it was my stock tires are 27.4 inches, BFG's should be around 34.8 so by putting the tires on the truck should be "lifted" 3.7 inches. Think I could run these without a lift? Just trying to get some opinions, Im going to get a 3" body lift and 2" levelling coils, and put my chevy leafs in anyway so it sits a tad higher.

With the amount of fender you cut off the front, you might be able to run the BFG's, but I don't know about those Iroks.

The tires may be 34 inches tall when unmounted, but as soon as they are mounted on a wheel with the truck weight on them, they are going to spread out a little.

Sorry man, but I don't like what I see yet. Needs a lift and a LOT of paint. Even a $75 paint job would be better then what's going on now.

Nope, had no intention of actually running the Iroks. Im not going to have an extreme lift in here but i will have the levelling coils and body lift, it should still be pretty high. the truck is just like this for the time being..i think i'll be spraying the whole thing with bedliner..maybe not, thinking about urban camo as well.anyhow, it's a constant work in progress for the time being, ive really only been driving it for about 2 months..so this stuff isn't going to be getting done right away. im kind of doing what i can to juggle 3 vehicles right now.
