Update on J series car. A lot has happened since last post.
5 lug conversion for front -- Tire/Wheel options better for street FF. Long term the plan is 18x10's I think for 285's
Ebay fiberglass sunroof delete.

World Honda Meet 2016! Only did Vtec Club Time Attack. Group N class first place.
After Vtec Club decided it was time for some aero
Used an Ebay lip for the air dam. Had to lower it about .5" to be flush with the splitter. 5" ground clearance.
In prep for SuperLap Battle took it down to Nola Motorsports Park for testing....however the car had other plans. Made it one lap and the motor blew up. We believe it was due to bad fuel, ring land failure or piston cracked. I did get one track shot though.
We had to get a motor ordered....so through LKQ motors another $500 motor. Same J32a2 going in for now.
So in prep for SuperLap Battle we did one dyno session, threw it on the trailer and took it to California. No aero testing, same tires used at Road Atlanta, Gingerman, and the few laps at Nola.
Practice session I managed one clean lap 1:59.2, then in the first lap in the timed session I ran 1:56.9 which ended up being my best time of the event.
So much potential in this swap. I'm actually amazed no one has really bothered to try this out. Next year the plan is to hit 52s. I think it can do it NA, but I'll be focusing on grip, brakes, and weight. Possible I may do a J35 swap. So much to do.
Hope this gives a benchmark for anyone wanting to go J series.

The "All Stock" USDM ITR fanboy - Despises all modifications to the car even if it's far better looking and/or outperforms OEM quality.
-Will go on about re-sale value even though no one else cares.
-Brags about how it's the greatest FF car ever made while never driving or tracking said car.
-Lives in denial that any 90s Honda can be built just as fast, if not way faster, for less money.
-Does not understand that it's the concept/idea of the ITR that's cool which can be easily applied to any Honda/Acura chassis if you put in the work.
