Been on here for a while but not really posted much, just read the wealth of info really.
Anyway got myself a black ek9 a year ago after selling my wobbly Ep3 which i hated from the day i got it!!!!!!

This was it the week a collected it

2214189-1.jpg


Had bc coilovers and some other bits and bobs and was happy with it like that for about 4 months!!! Got bored of the lack of grunt and a trackday at cadwell hammered that point home with frustratingly catching focus RS' and M3's on every corner to watch the dissapear on the straights. So out came the b16b and in went a b18c4, paired with a t3/t4 garret and some other supporting bits. A visit to Ricky @ RaceTech later and a live map nailed 345bhp at the fly :) i can higjly recomend Ricky for the stunning job he did!!!!

Currently stands looking like....

Current spec is...

Completely stock b18c4 with 56k miles on it when installed
Blox intake manifold
Rc 450 injectors
255 fuel pump
Pfab manifold ceramic coated
Garret t3/t4 ceramic coated running 10psi
Pfab 3 inch d/p and system ceramic coated
Tial 38mm w/g with screamer
Apexi intercooler
Stock ek9 gearbox with factory LSD
Stage 3 competition clutch
Lightened ek9 flywheel
Mapped on crome by Ricky @ Racetech who did an killer job!!!!
New slimline fad and ali rad
New discs and mintex 1144 pads
Bc racing coilovers
D2 rear camber arms
Skunk 2 lca's
Beaks rear tie bar
Saga oil temp and boost gauges
Final gear auto 7x16 lightweight alloys (stupidly rare) wrapped in toyo T1Rs

Its got brand new bonnet and wings to go on over winter then full respray. Its going to be 90% track car so bigger brakes, stripped, more chassis strengthening etc so will keep updated as money and progeress improoves :)

Cheeky lil vid too.....

Hi mate, good to see your car at last. Wondered what it looked like, not dissappointed ;-) looks great!!!! Nice power figures there too. Would be great to get these cars on track as you have said.

Yea sure would bro!! Im not happy with how it looks at moment but been concerntrating on getting it mechanically sound so can now move onto sorting how it looks. Planning mental aero mods with rear diffuser, carbon gt style wing and dirty offensive front splitter and canards. Seeing as ill be mostly using it on track im swinging towards the whole 'time attack' aesthetics :)

Nice monster that is, the engine is very tidy and lots of space. usually turbo'd civics look a bit cluttered but yours is perfect! good luck with the future mods!

I tried to go with the factory look so had all the turbo etc ceramic coated black. The intercooler piping and joiners will eventually be black also and the a different rocker cover with larger breathers i have painted J's Racing gold

Always faniced the idea of a Turbo'd Honda, if this a safe set up? Did Ricky at Racetech mention anything about how long the engine would roughly last?

So far 8 months of torment and it hasnt evan blinked an eye!! Not a thing!! Its mapped for low down grunt and reliability. Rev limit set at 8200, the only factor in the limit to my power was the injector size ricky said. He runs a civic aerodeck with one of his kits on and its 460bhp iirc on stock internals and is a daily shitter/track car! It gets used as well, like a 17 year old russian prostitute and to date the only problem was a headgasket let go in 2 years!! Id trust him with anything honda and turbo'd tbh

Seams fine to me, for the size of the turbo spool is pretty quick, its making boost at 3200 and is at full boost by 4800

Nice neat install :nice:

BUT you injectors are far to little for the power output, the damn things must be screaming! Unless you hve the fuel presure is cranked way up there.
