The rebuild of Jade…

I figure I should pass this along to you guys since Eibach is coming up within a couple weeks….For those of you that don’t know, fellow Honda enthusiast and devoted follower of the Chronicles (*ahem*), Jade aka Jadedm aka Morgan, is currently building a geniune Civic Type R which she plans to officially debut at the annual Eibach meet…

Man that sentence was awfully long…Anyway, not only is it a true CTR, it also has a Sportcar Motion-assembled K20z in it. Oh, did I mention that it was being built by a woman? Now I don’t know much about women other than the fact that they yell at me and don’t have penises, but I know one thing; there aren’t too many of them that build cars and they definitely don’t build Civic Type Rs. It’s a cool thing to see girls that are into building Hondas. It’s a shame that they are so far and few between. I personally only know of one other girl that has the know-how to build her own car but she’s currently on hiatus so that makes Jade’s build even that much more important in a male-dominated community…

This CTR has all the top of the line stuff from Skunk2 and BDL. The header above is the newly released K-series Skunk2 unit that you’ve probably heard me speak of before…

…and that piece is connected to Skunk2’s newly developed complete exhaust system…

Hasports newest version of the EKK2 mounts are holding the K inside Jade’s EK9. The newer versions include a different rear bracket as well as an updated tranny-side bracket….

Jade also installed a bunch of BDL stuff like their k-series fuel rail and oil cap…

The interior is all business. No radio, Karcepts shifter, m3-red cage that Morgan just recently painted, and seats I hear are coming very soon…

It’s currently sitting on 16×8 Enkei RPF1s but that last time I was down there I heard she was getting some Work wheels powdercoated and they should be on there soon. Other than the ARC winglets, the exterior retains it’s OEM appearance. It’s a Type R afterall so it’s not really necessary to do anything drastic to it.

She’s still working hard on finishing it up but it’ll definitely be ready for Eibach in two weeks. I have yet to see it in person actually so I’m looking forward to seeing it in person as well. It doesn’t get any better than this, classic geniune Civic Type R with an updated heart in the form of a K20 engine. For more on the build, make sure to check out Jadedm’s blog: Randomness of Jade. She’s always updating her whenever she does anything to the car so make sure to check it out and see her personal thoughts on build.
