What are the characteristics of the Honda Civic? I don't know this type of car yet.

They're super light and very direct feeling. Kind of like a FWD economy car version of a Mazda Miata. They feel like they're going fast even when they're not going fast and you can jump in and just immediately drive them at the limit because its so easy to feel everything.

They also respond well to modifications and have a reputation as being easy to work on.

The downside is that they're really not fast even if you do a ton of work. But they will FEEL fast with a crazy high redline!

So I hit a wall in the build. Found a stripped bolt on the manifold and now it's at the machine shop getting fixed.

Here's some pics to update.

In a nutshell he's located in Osaka Japan and has accounts with all the major part companies and also can order through Japan's version of eBay up garage etc.. once he orders the part for you it's shipped to him and they make sure the packaging is secure or combine parts in one shipping order for you. For that he charges 10%. Then he'll send you multiple shipping quotes. For reference I had a carbon hood ordered from J's racing which cost me wholesale plus his 10% and I had it shipped to my house in 22 hours and it was still $300 cheaper than if I ordered it from anyone's stateside. Plus I got it made/shipped in less than half the time a US retailer would get it to be in a container. 👍👍 He maintains a low key to not jeopardize his relationships with the manufacturers since he's undercutting retailers. Web/insta/Google.. He's the JDM Jesus! 👌👌

This is dope man, I love the EK. Staying true with B-series too, that's nice to see. Would've figured you'd put in a K20. Can't wait to see it done!

Holy shit. I'm so sub'd to this.
I had a '96 EX Sedan, while it wasn't long for this world, I loved it. My brother had a 97 Hatch base D16, manual everything, was 10/10.

Love the build, man! I had a '97 coupe for years, never did a motor swap but did all of the suspension work, made it look nice, autoxed it.

I also had that steering wheel in an NA Miata and currently in my Corvette, great stuff!

Can't wait to see how this turns out.

Got everything ready for the engine to go in. Ordered more body parts to get ready for paint. Unfortunately the fenders have been discontinued so I have to find a mint set. Cheers!

These are just random pics with the new phone
