    My new car and it ain't a Honda...

    You're from the UK right? On the other side of the north sea rust issues are not as bad as in the UK but it's not like it's souther Spain here either (luckily in terms of heat). Another problem is the price, the cheapest S2k's here are 19k pounds. That's in a totally different league than my...

    My new car and it ain't a Honda...

    It's been a while! I have sourced a few parts that I have laying around now. A nice subtle trunk spoiler lip, Bilstein B12, differential with LSD. Hoping to do the spoiler lip, suspension and powder coated wheels more or less at the same time, will post pics of the result. Unfortunately I have...

    My VI-RS (17000km), (MORE UPDATES) more parts and wheels

    What a wonderfull project. I'm wondering, why 3" for a N/A 1.8? Sounds a bit big to me, I would guess exhaust gas velocity would be lowered diminishing the scavenging effect?

    Civic FD2

    Lovely car mate. Hope to own one some day.

    My 98 jdm dc2

    Good to see you take care of her! What does that amount of work in the UK cost? I think here you'd be thinking of 2500 - 3000 euro's.

    Any og's still on here?

    Great car mate. Personally still looking into buying a DC2, EK9 or FD2 again. My MX5 NC is lovely but the engine is shite. Prices are rising and we have a wonderfull new house so we'll see if it will ever be attainable again. Have fun with your car!

    Trying to restore a 1997 EK9 to its former self

    Really cool project to restore the car instead of breaking! How do you think this compares to the Clio you had?

    Any og's still on here?

    This. I would love to get this board to be more active again. What can we do to get this going again? Maybe rvm can chime in on this. Send all members an e-mail. Something like "Fsck Facebook, let's get this more active!"

    Feedback needed for upgrading

    Ah yes, shorter gearing might be your best bet to a faster car, at the cost of top speed though and higher rpm at motorway cruising. But that might be as much work as swapping an engine. I think your best of sticking with the ECU yes and put the money in handling and/or brakes.

    Need a good help making my decision!

    Welcome! I have had an EK3 in hatchback form as a daily besides my DC2. Was a nice daily car and really economical. Where are you from? At least here it seems nice examples just seem to get more rare. No rust at all is a good starting point (if you're sure of that). The paint seems a bit "used"...

    Feedback needed for upgrading

    I agree with the above posters. Get bolt-ons, an after market ECU and a good tune. If you want more power past the point of bolt-ons, it's gonna get very expensive very quickly simply because a B16b is already a highly tuned engine from the factory. Expect to spend 2500 or more pounds for...

    Any og's still on here?

    Welcome back :) Have you been able to compare the FD2 to a DC2 or EK9 yourself?

    Door speakers

    You should try to find max mounting depth and then see what after market speaker fits. Diameter is mostly one of the standard sizes on cars so if you can find the mounting depth then you can choose a nice set of speakers. Usually mounting depth is limited by the window of your door. A set of...

    My new car and it ain't a Honda...

    It's a modified Ford engine yes. Unfortunately Mazda hasn't modified it enough to make it a better engine...Unfortunately there are no parts for a K-swap.

    My new car and it ain't a Honda...

    But it is Japanese! It's a mk3 MX5! One of the cars on my car-bucket-list. I needed a new car and finally had the budget for a really nice one but not for a decent Type R. So I bought one (1.8), more or less the only really nice looking one. Had it checked by a garage. Engine went after a couple...

    My EK9 from the Isle of Man

    Must be one of the best places on earth to own an EK9 :D

    Ek9 k24 turbo sequential

    Wow. That's absolutely bonkers. Must easily be doing 350+ hp? Though I do wonder with the power it must be making, even though the EK9 has a wonderfull chassis wouldn't the FWD cause a lot of trouble in corners?
