Building the B18C1 Engine Part 2:  Improving Rod Ratio

By Chuck Johnson
 
Our main goal for Project Honda Civic EJ is to build a formidable, yet reasonably economical weekend warrior.  However, we didn't want our "budget" project scope to limit us to merely rebuilding a stock configuration B18C1.  Admittedly, we also wanted the challenge of trying something new rather than simply building another stroker B-series.

WRC Act II: Clarity

WRC Act II: Clarity

By Bill Wood

When we last looked in on the 2011 World Rally Championship season we were in the intermission between the second and third act of Winnin' Time.

Now jump to Act II where the storyline flexes and the challenger falls into the abyss of agony without the thrill of victory promised on Wide World of Sports.

Project V8 RX-7: Part 5 - Choosing a Transmission, the Tremec T56 Magnum

By Mike Kojima

When we were contemplating the buildup of our E-ROD powered RX-7, we planned to bolt up the same T56 six speed transmission that we had in the car when it was LS1 powered.  This plan went to crap shortly before we decommissioned the 7 for the E-ROD swap when while driving under normal conditions--nothing abusive or even brisk for that matter--the transmission got itself jammed in 3rd gear and no amount of muscling could free it.
