    3D printed one of my purpose designed "velocity stacks" Its got an 80mm attachment and a 2.13 ratio elliptical bell-mouth extending to 6". Made really good torque on my old B18C as it improves cylinder filling. Here's it fitted with a 6" diameter...

    B18C Rebuild advice

    PCT pistons give ~12.5 IIRC CR in an B18C - because of the longer stroke. Just make sure you use the figures for the 18C not 16A/B. I imagine 11.7 would be fine, but I'm not an expert on that. Is there any documentation relating to your chosen CAMS? John

    B18C Rebuild advice

    Cams and an increase in compression need to go hand in hand to get the full effect. 215bhp from a skim and cams is a bit of an ask. "high comp valves" are not worth it. I expect you'd be ok on stock valves with those cams too. Titanium retainers are not needed unless you're trying to rev to the...

    Got the rear bumper off...

    Nothing there that would fail an MOT. Those RTA bushes are in "ok" condition. You should see a bad one! Rust very minor surface rust. If you did have a rear bar it would be rusted through and gone by now. It being gone - not an MOT issue.

    Had a trackday at Oulton, but cus the weather was good I took the kitcar. But then back to the Civic. Never been visible smoke from my B18C4, but it does use a bit in VTEC. I had a new headgasket and some valve stem seals, and a weekend to burn so I thought why not? Part way through...

    Tire Recommendation

    T1-R are about the worst tyres ever made. DO NOT USE. TR1 I gather go a long way to addressing this. R1R are good, R888/r Are great.

    My civic - clubsport inspired

    Aww thats a shame! Like this car. Would kinda like your shell as its 100x nicer than mine but I doubt it makes 'economical sense'!

    Quick photo - as I gave it a wash ont he way home:- Fitting the coilovers. Had to wind the fronts out quite a lot:- Top adjusters - very nice for access! Took the car for a drive and it felt nice, albeit will need to play with the damping settings as it was a touch bouncy off...

    The work ramp was very helpful for the ARBs:- Twenty mins was all it took to remove the front one, albeit this was most due to the front drop links being new as those can be a real pain. Undid the droplinks, dropped the rear gearchange support strut, undid the cat and ropped that (hung with...

    Actually quite to opposite! Just feeling it out as I go along. Bit of a catchup - had an accident with my car being left in gear by soebody who moved it. When I started it through the open window it drive into a metal bench:- The paint crazed anf life is too short so I decided while I could...
