  • A new day, a new DC5R

    Just picked up a 2001 Honda Integra Type R DC5. After two long weeks of trying to get the price down, it finally happened. I cried on the inside and said to myself, "this is almost better than going on a date with Katy Perry"

    Anyway, got it home (About a few blocks away ) and as many of you may know, when you do the fabled "automotive archaeology" inspection, you discover how much of a sleazy and reckless life it led:

    -Brake booster/ master cylinder was leaking
    -Rust appearing after only being alive for 11 years (I'VE SEEN AE86's with less rust than this)
    -Battery tray non-existent
    -Incorrect battery installed (WHO THE EGG BUYS A HUGE ASS BATTERY FOR THEIR DC5?)
    -Short ram intake (I'm not a believer of its merits, I'm more concerned about the heatsoak)
    -Ad said 2.4" catback exhaust with headers. I find it to be a 3" catback which could put out ears if you hit vtec.
    - Seems to have been resprayed recently (Accident probably). Overspray everywhere =_= They were lucky it was championship white

    - I'm discovering new faults with it every day

    The good thing was, the engine and gearbox still pulled pretty strong which was a good tipping point for me to buy the car. Many a night I've seen DC5Rs being thrashed and modded to the extreme.

    I thought this car was just going to be a nice daily for me to lightly mod to my liking. Oh how wrong I was. It's more like a project car now which I pour money into.

    Here are some pics after vacuuming. It was that bad I couldn't show you guys what it was like dirty. I'm about clean interiors and clean engine bays.

                  Thanks guys. I love project cars even if they do take up cash. I've spent a full day on damage control today. I'll post updates when I'm not knee deep in overspray

                      Nice! this makes me really miss my DC5. A set of JDM type-r wheels would be epic.

                          Thanks bud. Yeah I've already paid for one to be sent my way. Hopefully by the end of the week. Long list of stuff to do before it's safe to drive on the street.

                              Looks clean and tidy and in the correct colors. I'm guessing you didn't get an RAA inspection on it though?

                              Can't wait to see it smoke my V8
