Will be done by end of year and Ill post a thread when its on the road.
Love it, man. Totally the case that the 03 Civic will be more practical as a daily... parts! 240 HP in a maybe 2500 pound car will be a lot of fun. Looking forward to the thread.


See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
