Well, and introduction..

I bought my Ek9 about a year and a quarter now, It's such an amazing car, both handling and acceleration wise, just as a standard car aswell - I couldn't believe it. I actually thought I bought a race car with the engine sounding soo great!

Me and my mate (also with his Ek went to pick it up)! What fun that was on the way home.. Cool

This is what it looked like when I got it - I thought it was fairly standard, but I was wrong!







What I didn't realise is that it actually was some sort of EX-race car in Japan, having the following;

Roll cage
Stroked kit to 1,8
Spoon 1,5 way mechanical Diff
OS Giken super single one clutch and flywheel
Sprint Hart Cp-035's

Some nice little goodies there, but the track bug hit me, hard and I wanted more! So let the work commence...

I started to take things a little serious about 6 months in with the plans of making an ultimate B-series Civic (Pure N/A power, aggression and lets not forget... The noise!!)
I met up with Advanced Motorsports & Engineering in silverstone, and they created this!


Some pictures of the build-up.

Engine + gearbox removed to be sleeved.



Some of the Old parts



Some of the new parts to go in






Complete Engine Re-Build, every bearing, washer, sea - the lot!







Some pictures of the B16 block having the sleeves put in and being assembled









When the engine was nearing completion - looking fairly good already!









Hmm, so whats missing now?


























Oh yeah, the cage!












Over the next few weeks everything was slowly put back in, glass, engine, seats (even though they are now replaced with Recaro profi SPG's) ect ect..













I think it's about time for the Dyno.. bom










Some Short-ish video's -















Current spec; 190bhp @ 7800 rpm / 153 lbft @ 6144 rpm - (Pre V-tec 137 lbft @ 3800 rpm) - At the hubs Razz

Darton MID sleeves
Carillo rods
CP (High comp pistons) Running around 12.9-13.1 C/r
AEM series 2 ecu
Koyo rad
AEM Uego wideband gauge
Skunk 2 B-series cam gears (Standard Ek9 cams though)
Full set of ACL race bearings
Walbro 255lph fuel pump
S80 gearbox
100mm brake ducting
Red top racing battery
Custom air box for ITBs
OEM Honda B18 crank
ARP headstuds
Tein mono-flex with Tein EDFC
Pearl White 15" Advan Rgs/ Sprint Hart CP-035s
Skunk 2 Megapower R (70mm exhaust)
Custom 10 point weld-in cage (FIA/MSA approved)

All other parts were changed during the build, Alternator, cambelt, distributor, The usual ancilaries. May of missed bits but I hope I've got most of it down for you!

Hope you ejoyed, and are not.... Sleep

Cheers, it's a fairly aggressive crossover considering their standard cam's lol, imagine some Toda spec B/C's in there Surprised . - No exterior plans as of yet, maybe a C/f front splitter or something, I like the standard look asif it isn't modded, lol. hehe.

Don't mean to be rude, but this this look like a standard EK9 ? Sleeved for bigger, high compression pistons is correct, I'm sure the ECU and tuning plays a fair part in this aswell.

No

Yeah, feels weird having torque to be honest lol!
