Hunting Unicorns Acura Integra FSR PASMAG 1

After rolling his B16B-swapped 1994 EJ1 Civic in 2011, Nick Poulopoulos embarked on a hunt for his next platform. After looking at more than 30 rusty options, he stumbled upon his unicorn: a clean body Integra GSR with a JDM front end. Within weeks of taking possession of the Integra, Nick began the process of swapping parts from the EJ1 into his new platform. After spending some time doing autocross and lapping events, it was time to focus on shows. Since January 2015 the car has been in tear-down, cleaning up the engine bay and getting up to show quality. The refinishing of the engine bay has been a chance for Nick to get his first hands-on experience with bodywork, adding a personalized touch to this special ride. Keep your eyes out for this one on the West Coast of Canada this year.
