Still haven't had a chance to get the damaged assessed and haven't been really trying to hypermile but still getting mid 50's no problem.

Attached is a pic of what may come to be in the future, civic ek kamm backed with crx hatch



With alot of metal and fiberglass work it could look amazing, have better aero, and have a ton more storage space.

Looks like it would look really good after (like you said) tons of body work. Lets see it!

If they're going to do body work, great time to have the paint match or at least mix up some paint to spray your gray door guards and lower trim parts. The only part that sucks about having them painted is having to touch them up if you scrape them.

What about the front end damage? Fixed? Please post some pics of the damage, I want to see if it's like the accident I had four years ago in my current ride. T-boned this old lady that pulled out in front of me. It wasn't pretty, or my fault for that matter . She was okay, but her Taurus wasn't.

So yeah, still untuned but running really well open loop without going into positive boost.

My twinscroll turbo flows quite a bit of air and that coupled with the fact that my exhaust is 3" now instead of the stock 1.75 it breathes quite a bit easier.

Vacuum reading are a bit higher than stock and I can now accel under higher vacuum unlike before.

Im itching to boost though, planing to put down a solid 250hp/250tq on a bone stock 1.6

I'll get some pix of the front tonight along with pix of the turbo kit.

The damage doesn't look bad in the pix but the hood, both front fender, rad support, bumper support are toast.

And the turbo kit is all my design, CTD Fab, and with the current turbo has a hp capability of 300+ and it AC friendly!!! With a fully built motor and a bolt on upgraded turbo 500+ is attainable

Kit stats -

Honda 1.6 d16y5 engine bone stock
Evo td0516g-9.8 twinscroll turbo
CTD Fab custom sch40 stainless steel manifold
Audi dual backdoor intercooler
full 3" exhaust turbo back
2.5" separate dump out the bumper (soon)
Tial BOV
Cold Air inlet piping


yeah and some other stuff. The exhaust is made out of a $1200 Invidia STI exhaust that broke a track record @ Firebird on Pete Martini's Suby, dual resonators, it sounds very stock, uber quiet

Thanks BDC

It should help make some amazing power

*update* Received a nice big check in the mail so now I can order the rest of my parts and fix the body.

*Really want to get tuned by the 4th-5th of December

*Have a fully built D series block coming my way that should support 400+hp but need to order a custom turbo cam with a regrind to my specs.

*Started building a variable length intake manifold, should increase mid range tq quite a bit while allowing for a better top end.


Cant wait
