So here is the start of my new build thread since my '99 Y56 EK4 SiR which I still miss a lot after putting a lot of effort into it but It's in good hands now :nice:, I was convinced since then I'd leave the performance side of the Honda scene for a while and try to enjoy my stock '99 EK3 and with a new job in Newcastle after finishing uni in July. Although I quickly decided I wanted a fresh off the boat '98 DC2.

So after searching since September and several disappointments over a month or so, JM imports found me this car at a little private auction house in the back end of no where and I wanted it that much we agreed a deal before it went through the auction house.

The car arrived in the country two weeks ago and it passed MOT with no issues, and I should be picking it up this Friday once the paper work is finalised. It's in fantastic original condition, and more importantly it has no rust!

It's quite rare for a '98 model to have no airbags or ABS which was exactly what I wanted aswell as the black recaro's.

It has some nice parts:

Mugen 5 way adjustable suspension
Bronze Mugen MF10's 16x7.
Dunlop Direzza DZ101 215/45/16
Mugen twinloop catback
Mugen Gen.2 wing
Mugen gauge bezel
OEM Acess Side skirts and rear spats
New Endless pads front and rear
Front slotted discs
OEM Honda rear strut brace
OEM 4-1 manifold
Spoon drop in filter
Cusco C-pillar brace
OEM HID headlights

I have a new j's racing decat and engine torque damper to go on as well as a Mugen 2way LSD and new Mugen gen.1 oil cap.

I was in the middle of replacing all exterior decals and badges of the car with OEM items to complete the exterior whilst taking these pics.

Cannot wait to take it a drive!!

Pre clean up.

















Excuse the phone pics will get some on a better camera shortly.

Got it fully undersealed too before it hits our roads and I'm getting an alarm put on it this week too :nice:.

Looks awesome mate, nice to see such a clean DC2 still being imported and with some very nice Mugen mods. New set of decals and badges and the wing mirrors painted white and it will be perfect

The Mugen suspension will be nice on the road and track :)

Thanks :nice:. Yeh It is quite rare for a '98 to come with neither and no window tints aswell which was exactly what I wanted.

Cheers Stephen, yeh It strange the mirrors are black I thought, came off a black teg by the looks of it. And I will be testing the Mugen suspension shortly to see how it performs.

It now has all brand new decals and badges on the outside, was in the middle of applying them whilst taking the pics lol.

Nice
get some centre caps for the mugens

I have already noticed you can still buy them new in Japan and Kings, Have other things I'd like to buy first though,

Thanks guys, glad you like it as much as myself, will update this when I get my first run out in it :D.

Have ordered a couple of these genuine Mugen emblems for the spoiler, think they look great!
