The Story

Started out as my first car and slowly over time built it into a track toy. Originally started with the simple bolt-ons and left it at that. Decided I wanted to get into racing and went full bolt on with flex fuel and a bigger ball bearing 27WON turbo after blowing 2 OEM SI turbos one on a PB lap at Pikes Peak raceway. After the trans decided to start letting go I got rid of the car and have since moved onto a Type R. Had to use a 2018 Honda Odyssey O2 sensor after the downpipe kept killing OEM civic sensors.
