Nice EP3. I got one myself and im considerring the JRSC kit. HAve you ever dyno'd it, or ran it at the track, if so what kinda #'s did u get? I want daily-driver number's instead of manufacturer's claims, and u seem to be the perfect canidate. Thanks a lot and keep up the great work!

Thanks for all the kind words everyone.



The upgraded harnesses just boost the voltage of the bulbs.



As far as the JRSC - I love it. It's great linear power and fun around town.



As far as the LED's are concerend: It was a custom job that was done over a weeks time. It requires soldering, fabricating, etc and was very time consuming.

Good clean EP there. What one earth did your buddy to to blow the motor? How's the JRSC on it? I'm looking to get one for the D16Y7 motor in my '00 DX coupe. I'm also confused about your listing of "upgraded ballasts with relays..." Only HIDs use ballasts, and you list having Silver Star bulbs with are halogen...? =\ Anywho, keep up the good work! Also have any pics of the LEDs you changed out in the cluster? I have mine amber right now, but I keep hearing that CTR is more red than amber, and was looking to replace the bulbs yet again but for red this time...
