K20 on K20 love (car related)
Camera: k20 
Posted By: ga-hing, 08-22-2010, 12:49 PM

I went out yesterday in the middle of daylight to shoot some cars of a pair of friends. One of them is a Subaru Imprezza with some mods, and I believe the owner has an STI block laying around somewhere in his place. The other arguably the nicest Integra out there. Aside from the impressive cosmetic changes (bys bumper, fal glass...) it's boosted and throws some serious horse power to the wheels.

More info on the Integra:
k20 (engine)
full race manifold
full race intercooler
gt4088r turbo charger
spoon cluster
defi gauges
spoon brakes
vision imus seats
kevlar backs
takatas
j's flares

I found it difficult managing the flare on cars when it is so sunny out. Thanks for checking them out, comments of any sort are very welcome

I think you've done a very good job with these shots- doesn't seem like there's any visible flare, and the colors are quite natural.

White cars in the bright sunlight are tricky. Nice work.

No engine shots?

Thanks bro, the engine bay was way too dirty. The last time the guy washed the car was the last time it rained outside...lol

Nice shots. I can't wait to get my K100DS so I can take photos at the car shows.

Looking good.

But on another note, K20 with a GT40, how usable is the powerband? Just guessing here, fully spooled in the mid to high 4000s?
