Description: European market EK3 Civic hatchback, equipped with a lean-burn, 115 hp, 1.5 liter VTEC-E engine (D15Z6).
Build Thread:
Current Mods: I tried to make this a fun car, with a good mix of sportiness and fuel efficiency.

The car features sports suspension, as well as a sports steering wheel and drivers seat, for better handling and effortless cornering. The lowered body probably helps aerodynamics slightly.

I run 0W30 Mobil 1 oil to reduce friction losses compared with the more typical 5W40.

Tire pressure is set to 2.55 bar in front, 2.45 in rear.

In late 2014 I installed a set lightweight wheels, which had a nice effect on performance and ride comfort (not pictured).

Planned Mods: Lower rolling resistance tires (currently high performance Michelin summer tires).
