Since it was such a nice day I cleaned up the cars and snapped a few pics.

Ive owned the Civic hatch since 97. I did all the work myself and the car is responsible for my career choice. Its more of a family member than an actual car. Ive been in the Honda game for a LOOOOOng time. Its a fun quick little car I auto-x every now and again. Enjoy the pics.

Oh wow that civic is so clean. You could eat off the engine. Any videos of it at the track? If they weren't stolen so dang often, I could see myself in a honda of some kind (mostly a CRX).

Sick hatch dude. What motor is that in there? I don't know enough about hondas to be able to tell on sight.

Have you ever messed with/know anything about the f23a? I gave my 99' 5 speed accord daily to my little brother, and we're considering turboing it. I've done some research that says its a sturdy block, but when it comes down to it I really don't know crap about hondas.

The F/H series are stout enough for turboing but any turbo install requires a good tuner/tuning. Ive seen turboed stock bottom end D series run 11's in a crx. Find a good kit or piece it together yourself(much cheaper). cb7tuner.com is a good site and Honda-tech.com is another.

My hatch has a 1st gen 1.6 b series vtec motor. I have a gsr bottom end Im building that will make this car an absolute blast to drive. Thanks for all the praise.

^ yea IIRC you can acutally use take off DSM turbo manifolds on a F-series. but i wouldnt boost it much past 6-7 psi if u want it to last any reasonable amount of time.

That was a little ridiculous in size wasnt it. Better resize that one.
