One of the things I don't like about the ek9, is the gear ratios / final drive, some times you get your ass kicked because if you shift to early you don't stay on the vtec range!

How about you guys? hehehe

No need to create the B16B, would much rather a B18C-R in there!

I had this problem also when i was NA, you have to shift right at redline.


that it's LHD!
um, actually ek9's are all RHD.

I had 205/50/15 and still had that problem, now it doesn't even matter though, boost ftw, i never fall out of power :D

Put the nozzle in, then turn the handle up to the right so the handles almost paralell with the rear bumper line, you'll find it flows straight in then!

HAHA one thing i don't like is the standard ECU, the Spoon one you don't have this problem at all :p

The car itself I can't really find fault with, nothing that i don't like as if there was i would modify it so i liked it, simple as that!!!

What i don't like is how many people obsess about B18's!!! The amount of posts by people slating the B16B and how it's apparantly some "inferior" engine is a Joke. EK9 has so much potential if you work around the engine, with basic breathing mods to the engine but with extensive suspension/braking mods the car can go very very well

Not saying that the B18c isn't a good choice, same weight of engine but larger displacement, of course it's going to pull a bit better.....

The gear-ratios are a bit annoying, a 4.7 fd would have been a better choice for the EK9 when it was being made imo.

that it attracts idiots in corsas who want to tailgate on the motorway. there is not one thing that i dont like about the car in general as the only main thing i've changed was fitting a teg gearbox the rest is just breathing mods and brake pads really
