OMG!! Its teh 1337 CRX!

So I figured I would just show off some good pics of the POS I used to drive before the M. The story goes like this, my brother had the car before me. He slid out and took off the back bumper with a tree trunk. He got a new car and I inherited the CRX.


And it was on.

MODS:
-Custom racing high rise intake....I drilled a hole in the hood then slapped on a giant air filter and an extended a screw to hold that bitch on.

-Wieght reduction, Back bumper missing, front bumper fell of I then tried to keep it on with ducttape. And it fell off again so I said fuck it. Then we went to town and removed all the interior trim.

-Super sweet racing stripes. Got the random urge, so I got some white spray paint and duct tape and BOOM! 15 horsepower for the big one. 5 each for the little ones.

-Exhaust....there is none. exhaust manifold, to NOTHING. It is teh loud.

Oh and the other hole in the hood was for my OLD custom intake. I cut the hole and rigged up a custom made scoop (which flew off on the freeway prompting me to do the high rise) and then re directed the intake piping to seal up to the hood when it shut. It was actually really badass!

Oh and by "Redirected the piping" I mean cut a piece of exhaust that I took off of the car so it would bend up to the hole in the hood.



Are you ready? Do you think you can handle how unbelivably sweet this car is?




Yeah I know....the sun is blinding and my thumbs in the way. Deal with it.






OMG, its the award winning interior!! Awesome!


Yes. That is a wooden stick holding the hatch open. You got beef?


See the duct tape for where the bumper used to be? I know....its simlply breathtaking.


WOOOO!! all 72 horsepower in its glory!

EDIT: and yes that is a bungee cord holding the radiator in.


yeah thats right SOHC 12 valve carburated....with V-TEC bitches!



And my custom intake plumbing...held on with more ducttape that doesn't do its job well.


So there it is.

I know...you may need a drink of water after viewing teh 1337ness.

Wow, and you never got pulled over for driving that heap? lol. Seems more like a race car (with the 'custom' interior that is... or lack there of). I think that if that was still road legal, my truck (or any beater I could find in a field) should easily be driveable too.. I'd be alittle scared in that thing (sorry but it's true). Nice though

Agreed, we can't even remove the stupid catalytic or have a loud muffler. A cop can pull you over for absolutly no reason to give you a VI if he finds one thing wrong and is in a grumpy mood...I had a friend that got pulled over for having a lifted truck, cop couldn't find anything so he lied his speed (after telling him that he pulled him over to give him a VI) and wrote a ticket. Non the less, he debuted the ticket and won

We can get VI's simply for having a car thats too loud(I think its like 80dB or somethin like that) but thats stereo or exhaust...
