    Faulty ek9 shell from breaker on here.

    Anyone interested in a group dyno session?

    Chris @ EFI mapped my Civic racer and my Honda Exige. Have been using him over 5 years. Great chap. Vtec6k has been enormously helpful with faultfinding too, so +1 prop to him.

    Good K20 Crank Wanted
