Project Honda Civic EJ Gets a Full Body Makeover

By Annie Sam

What was supposed to have only been a simple six month project to boost Project EJ Civic's performance with basic bolt-on applications has turned into a two year journey down the long, long rabbit hole. Fast forward two years, and the light we were wondering if we would ever see finally manifested itself at the end of the proverbial tunnel. Project Honda Civic EJ was finally turning the corner to focus more on finishing the build. But then again… as any gearhead would question, are you really ever finished?

Making the Fast Car Faster with a Wilwood Big Brake System!

By Mike Kojima

Edik Stepanyan's Integra was already one of the fastest cars in the MPTCC series.  To make matters worse for his competitors Edik has been hard at work during the off season dialing in the car specifically for MPTCC rules.  In the previous year Edik's car was set up for NASA's H2 class which meant his car was not built to the full extent that the MPTCC's rules allow.

 Modified StreetCar Shootoout Full Race S14

2013 Modified StreetCar Shootout - The Rules, The Cars, The Big Tease.

By Wes Dumalski and Sarah Forst 

Like all good stories, this one starts on the airplane while on line for the shitter. I hear a voice come up behind me “my GOD this woman won’t shut the hell up”... I turn to fund the animated Bill Caswell and we begin bantering about this woman on the plane who had been talking about absolutely nothing at all for 2 hours. I am on this plane and talking to Bill Caswell because I could not get a refund on my Expedia package and rather than let the tickets go to waste I figured I could still head to Arizona and cover the UMS tuning time attack event and find some good feature cars. As luck would have it two complete car nuts are on the same plane heading to the same place to do the same damn thing; be geeks.

Finding Honda - A Rare Look at the Automaker's Private Collection

By Aaron Bonk

A dozen or so parking spaces with the word Honda hand painted in small block lettering along their curbs are all that reveals that this building has anything to do with the once Japanese motorcycle manufacturer turned carmaker. There is no Honda sign perched along the building's facade. There is no Power of Dreams-emblazoned welcome mat out front. There isn't a single thing about where Honda houses what it calls its Private Collection that would lead passersby to believe that behind the stark-white, nondescript, Torrance, Calif. structure lies the most thorough collection of Honda and Acura automobiles outside of the company's homeland.

Project Civic SI, progress suspension

Project Civic SI Progress Suspension

By Aaron LaBeau

When searching for a Civic SI suspension we wanted to be sure this was an "upgrade" we could live with every day.  Weekend garage queens and purpose built track cars are fun for the occasional poke but for daily driven street cars, comfort trumps performance.  Any upgrade in performance would therefore have to be a bit of a doppelganger; refined for the commute but hard-edged enough not to roll over in the corners.

DROWsports Grand Axis Two Stroke Powered Ruckus

By Mike Kojima

The Honda Ruckus is a small 50cc scooter that has for some reason become the darling of the modified car crowd.  You would never think that car people would have become enamored of a 100 mpg, 35mph small scooter but nevertheless the Ruckus is huge.  MotoIQ has a project 50cc Ruckus that is probably the fastest stock engined Ruckus built so far.  

Of course in our circle, if some is good, too much is always better.  Andrew Horn, owner of DROWsports in Signal Hill is part of the MotoIQ crew and has helped us with many of our small powersports projects.  We helped him with the construction in his quest to build the ultimate Ruckus, check it out!

Project S2000 - Making a More Responsive Drivetrain

By Khiem Dinh

The AP2 generation of S2000s were made a bit cushier and street friendly compared to the AP1s for the general American consumer.  A larger displacement engine along with shorter gearing were specified to give more torque at the wheels which Americans desired.  However, Honda also matched a heavier flywheel and modified the clutch system with both negatively impacting the level of track aptitude.  Step 2 of Phase 2 is to shift the drivetrain bias more towards the track side of the equation compromising some everyday livability for better performance.

Project Honda Civic EJ: Staying Cool with Koyo and HPS

By Annie Sam

Now that the motor was back in the car ready to be buttoned up, we decided to give it a little bit of a cooling upgrade to avoid another Buttonwillow incident. Although the stock radiator was reliable for over a decade for daily driving, our beefed up Civic would also need a beefed up cooling system. The radiator we opted for was the Koyo All Aluminum Racing Radiator tied together with some hoses from HPS Performance Silicone Hoses.

Project S2000: Phase 2, More Grip

By Khiem Dinh

"Where has Project S2000 been" do you say?  I've been having fun and driving the piss out of it.  I had completed Phase 1 of the build which was to make a fast, reliable, and uncompromised daily driven street car that could be driven at the track without fear of breaking anything.  Well, the car is no longer my daily driver, so I have decided to commence with Phase 2.  A Porsche GT3RS is my philosophical car build benchmark; while it CAN be driven on the street, it's not exactly a car that you would want to daily drive as it introduces compromises to DD duties in order to improve track performance.  Phase 2, Step 1 = more grip and protecting the engine against increased lateral Gs.

Project Honda Civic EJ:  Building the B18C1 Part III

By Chuck Johnson - Photos by Joe Lu

Last we left off, we had just figured out how to improve the rod ratio of Project Civic's B18C1 through the use of a Nissan QR25DE spec rod from K1 Technologies.  With the details of this rather strange relationship of Nissan and Honda componenets figured out, it's now time to forever join them in holy matrimony.

Project Civic SI Hondata Flashpro

By Aaron LaBeau

I'm basically starting over with this Honda project discovering which sites keep the opinion at a minimum and can engage in thoughtful discussion about automotive aftermarket performance.  I've seen bench-racing posts, YouTube video's with Civic SI's winning or losing street races and lots of seat of the pants testing.  Who's got the most accurate butt dyno?

Project Honda Civic SI

Project Civic SI CT Engineering Intake and Exhaust

By Aaron LaBeau

When it came time to succumb to the modifying bug with the Civic SI (FA5) I realized in modifying cars we are doing something reflective of ourselves. One of the best parts about modifying a car is making it yours. If you've been reading our publication for a while you know we favor racecar parts and function over stanced out showcars. But, there's that line you cross when your street car loses the comfort and convenience in exchange for that performance that makes your car so different from every other one out there.
