Default blueprint's *Grand Prix White* AP1 Build

Since i haven't had luck selling this AP1 i have decided to keep it. I have sold my 08 AP2 and in the process of selling my 08 CR. This will be a reset and i plan on slowly modifying this car with budget in mind since my finances are currently strapped with a new Porsche Cayman GT4 arriving this summer. She will be my track car and daily driver.

I've taken her to Ballade Sports a few months ago and for a complete tune up.

Compression: 230 Across the board.

Ballade Sports Clutch and Flywheel
Ballade Sports Timing Chain Tensioner
Ballade Sports Correction Gear
Ballade Sports Axle Spacers

New Honda OEM Wheel Hubs and Bearings

Soft top was replaced about 2 years ago.

This will be a slow build with budget in mind.

Future Modifications:
-Tein Flex Z Coilovers or Fortune Auto 510 Coilovers
-Enkei RPF1 with Hankook RS3 255/40/17
-Stoptech Rotors
-Stoptech Stainless Steel Lines
-PMU CR Race Pads
-Rockstar Garage Gears Rep Lip

Nobody wants CE28's more than i do however i just cant afford it nor can i justify it for this car... If i can splurge on one item it would be Coilovers or an OEM hardtop since i hate the top down life.

And yes she is slow but fun also.

Are you going to rev this one to 10,000 RPM because someone told you it was safe?

Not bad. Faster than you in an S2000. Hate the way it sounds, though.

I hate the way it sounds also but there's no denying she's the best bang for the buck in terms of W2W thrills.
