(UPDATED 2016/09/14)

Current plans as of now are to have an energy suspension master bushing set installed, have an Autopower 4 pt roll cage with a triangulation put in along with a proper harness (street legal) and MOMO steering wheel. I also need to install my HAWK HPS pads that I've been lazy about putting in.

Best laptime as of yet was 2:26 at Autoclub Speedway in Fontana on their Roval CCW course.

Now for some pics,

When I first got the car:

Half Cage has been put in as well as the bushings, HPS pads, and Takata Harness. Also got new ties rods, boots for said tie rods, steering rack boots, and a new clutch master cylinder.

It's starting to come along nicely. Now that suspension and safety are more or less out of the way, the next step will be towards giving this car some more power. Not quite sure what path I'll be taking in regards to that but we'll see.

Nice build. Ive always thought these integras were awsome. Also, the paint on this car is beautiful.

I appreciate the responses guys! I would love to participate in an actual race event one day, that would be awesome. Right now I'm just taking the time to dial the car in.

Next thing on my list is definitely a motor swap, leaning towards a K24a2 so I can have more torque over a K20, but we'll see. Plans always change.

Here's some pictures and a video (at the very bottom) from this last weekend at the track:
