I look forward to build updates in my email every morning. Not sure what I'm going to do once it's finished (although I'm already following his E46 DSP build, too)...

I've always wanted to do that with a Civic hatch. Even kept a parts car around for a few years anticipating it, but never got around to it. I figured it was the only way to improve on it.

The Datsun MX520 was a good build. Apparently now he is taking a 510 wagon adding/splicing miata suspension and powering it with a F20C
