the idea is that the more practical/easy reversible mods will happen before the supercharging. Essentially 'prep work' for the final piece.
It's actually quite possible the coilovers will be the first thing done to it followed by wheels/tires. Yes the ranger will be done first.

Minor updates...
Car has been tinted, 35 front 25 back 15 rear glass. Looks darker than it actually is since it's a white car but looks great.
Ended up ordering the Enkei Raijin's in black because I really like the track look of black on white, went with 18x8.5 +38... They came in today!
Next up will be the coilover kit. Nothing will be installed until May since this is my only vehicle to drive this winter and I really don't want to fuck up my new wheels. Once the truck is done I can start the install's on this.

Minor update 2...

TEIN Street Basis coilover came in the mail a few days early. Wasn't expecting these until the 8th and they came the day after ordering via free shipping (Wish this happened more often)... Only this time I was in Key West while these sat on my porch near rain and almost snow until last night. Wouldn't be the biggest deal since they are fully coated. Anyway, these look great and after reading reviews I think they'll perform great too

why is supercharged in the title? Is the car supercharged??? Or is the supercharger as much of a unicorn as the other project?

Which I've read, seems misleading to put it in the title since it isn't supercharged. I was going to put "yet" but that assumes that it ever will be.

this project merely comes down to $$$. The majority of install's on this won't be by me and really aren't comparable to an engine swap. The custom work is minimal. If I would have stuck with auto on the ranger it would probably be running & driving, but that's a topic to be discussed in its own build thread.

The supercharger kit is pretty played out at this point, maybe not so much for the newer model TSX's, but for the K-series engines in general. The purchase of the supercharger will be the most delayed part of the build since it falls somewhere in the 4-5k range after all the extras and taxes. There's a line of people willing to do the install and Hondata is just a few clicks away. So for now it's in its unicorn stage but give it a couple years, aka when the warranty expires, and it will be in its cocoon stage ~ the same stage the ranger is in ~ and then it'll be a full blown Pegasus
