Default Herap1's Build Thread **SSM AP1** Engine build next!!

Hi s2ki!

I have been shopping around for a s2k for quite some time, I finally bought one this past summer. I settled for a 2001 Silverstone with red/black interior with 205,000kms. I purchased it at the local BMW dealership for a good price. The car was pretty much stock except for the CAI and Ingalls torque damper.

When purchased I ended up having to replace the driver rear wheel bearing and hub. Also took it in for a four wheel alignment and replace the tires. The alignment was off so bad the car use to shimmy back and forth when I hit a bump. I also changed all the fluids and installed new plugs.

Here is a couple pictures from the dealership.





Within the past few months, I started to ad some parts. My first modification was to get rid of the ugly amber headlights and replace them with the clear Japanese ones.



I also bought JDM red emblems for the front and rear of the car, along with a OEM replica front lip. The front bumper was chipped up quite badly, so I had my cousin paint it at the same time as the lip.

Yonaka Spec II coilovers, K&N was also installed.








Currently the car is stored for the winter with my civic.

Lots more to come

Nice car! I just picked up a 2000 Silverstone as well and didn't even get to drive it before putting it in storage. I'll be keeping an eye on your build. Enjoy the car!

I decided to take my valve cover off to have it powder coated. I have a buddy that did my fiances valve cover for his Integra and it turned out amazing. I had to do it to mine. I am going with a candy red, I also want to get a carbon fiber plug cover to finish it off.







The valve cover gasket was in bad shape also, so I need to purchase a kit. I also ordered a set of Password JDM fender washers in black.

Clean car by the way
