    JohnTurbo's EJ9 B18C4 Shed

    Good progress dude. Similar mods to my car! Just a heads up - for anything above 15mm R-ARBS on EJ9/EK4 shells, you need a subframe brace as they tear the OEM subframe.

    B16b Engine rebuild - advice

    Regarding pistons and rods, for the hassle and cost you might as well just get some forged stuff. For not much over 1k you can get new wiseco pistons and skunk 2 alpha rods where you can pick the compression ratio too. The OEM ones are a pain to get the wrist pin seated correctly. ECU wise -...

    B16a2 wiring loom help.

    My civic - clubsport inspired

    This is cool, reminds me of my car for some reason, think it's the colour combo. Re the inside - I used the oem carpet that clips to the seats and it lays down quite nicely and makes the insider a nice place to be.

    Anyone interested in having another meet?

    I'm up for that, I live 15 mins away from C+M too. I'm going tomorrow, I'll have a chat with Phil and Dan and see how they'd want us to do it. Should I say 10 cars provisionally? I'll probably invite my friend with the GT86 too that came last time if that's okay?
