Sold the crx.... got this now...

So ive sold the crx and now ive got a uk spec civic si / em1 !!
Bit of a " downgrade " if we are speaking about aerodynamics, but it came up for a GREAT price , and i snapped the guys arm off !. ( saying that though, ive never found any aero spec's for the em1? )

Its pretty clean ( its not got the alloys on in the pictures ).

Im feeling a full lower grille block to start off with.

Ive also noticed that if you look at the car from the front, that the bumper/lower lip( or spliter thing ) does not fully cover the side of the tyre. Perhaps i will make something up to divert air away from crashing into the tyre.
Ive also noticed there was an optional extra for mini boatails for the rear wheels on 1 or two other coupe's that i have seen .... May have to look into these...

Here are a couple of piccies.

I get the feeling you wanted this car for more performance, than gas mileage.

Really the best way to do that is to turbocharge your car with a larger than average turbo. Off boost your low compression built NA honda will make no power, resulting in great gas mileage. On boost, making 400 hp with a built motor you'll be able to fog the ozono layer on weekends, and take it all back during the weeks 5 day commute to work getting 45 mpg.

Haha, anyway good looking car good luck with it!
