So small update, regarding the EP3... Once it arrives i will be making a thread for itself but I'll hijack the ej9 one for the time being.

My plans with the car as far is to (possibly) redo the interior to match a JDM Spec Preface lift EP3, i've inquired about a K20 Private reg to make it stand out a little, A J'S Racing Tsuchinoko Intake, Skunk2 Megapower R exhaust system, hopefully source a Genuine Mugen Spoiler and i have a set of 17 inch Volk RE30 in bronze lined up ready to ship...

the car itself is already prepped for a turbo/supercharger build, just a few extra purchases.. plus which charger kit/system i decide to go with...

all opinions and criticism welcomed, and any suggestions please do put forward. Thanks.

So haven't updated the ej9 thread since i had my attention towards the ep3 and cleaning her up and spending a little bit of time and money on her, so not a lot has happened to be fair, gave her a quick foam, clean and polish at the weekend since the weather was good, should really pull my finger out with the car... if the weekends are going to remain nice and hot the lower tie bar & Cusco ARB may finally go on! so thanks to @B16Swt i have a set of EK9 door cards en rout, big thanks to him with his help! A real pleasure to deal with also! they'll liven up the interior just a bit more!

As for future plans, I'm thinking of doing the D16 intake manifold conversion, and i have read into it god knows how many times and it hurts my head every time i think of going for it! :angry: if anyone could give me a idiots guide to fitting one that would be really appreciated! I'm sure it's simple enough to do lol :lol:

A few pics of the car mid clean and the finished product, i honestly love seeing this little car all cleaned up, always leaves a big grin on my face! Such a fantastic colour when the sun hits it!







My Favorite pic i took on Sunday!


Thanks for Viewing Everyone! :dance:

Thanks bud :)) i have a fiesta sport at work and it's dull compared to the ej. You should go for it! Will be a downgrade from the EK but still fun little cars!

So... not really an update, got bored tonight and took a few snaps of my two beauties! lol :naughty: both all cleaned up (sort of) and looking great!







I'd love every ones opinions on both cars and/or which of them you guys prefer! Personally the EJ9 takes the win for me, both as great as each other, but you can't beat a good oldskool Civic... i've really caught the Honda bug... I'm possibly going to go EK9 (obviously) or EF9, if the right car comes up in the foreseeable future.

Thanks as always for viewing! Ross.

Nothing beats oldskool! EK9, EF9 or a facelift RX8 are what i'll most likely go for next! yeah it surprises me too, but when you look at both of them in the flesh the ej9 is just stunning to look at!

What kind of front lip is on the Ep3 ?
The lip is a Fiberworx Facelift lip, i have a full spec list on the other honda topics if that'll help out with anything else! It needs a little tlc but i'm contemplating going for a mugen lip if i make my mind up on what i'm doing!

Nice, it almost looks like a cross between a prefacelift Airwalker and facelift oem. I like.

Yeah it's much and such the same lip, the fiberworx one is a bit more round on the edges but i think it's the same idea!

Haven't posted in a while, not a lot has happened, i bought Elsom-20's Takata harnesses off him, so shout out to him for his help! Also ordered a harness bar for the harnesses, so if that turns up next week, that along with the Mugen gen 3, Cusco pillar brace, the harnesses and the Brides should hopefully be in the car! fingers crossed!

In the meantime i wired up the fog lights last weekend, was a easy job to do... and one of my colleagues at work tinted the car for me... so took a couple of pics of the car:



Looks so much better with a genuine lip!

Cheers bud, it looks a lot better than the nasty replica lip on my other bumper, the raybrigs really make the car look the part too! i may possibly swap the replica lip out for a spoon lip. Not much folk, or none at all in my area are running a spoon lip to my knowledge... i haven't seen one on the many eks/ejs/ems that are up here.

More than welcome pal Ha-ha I know what you but the thing is so gutless so a nice little Honda would be the way to go

So the EK9 doorcards arrived yesterday, fitted them last night and this was the outcome:

Before:



After:







I think they really set of the interior well. Simple little 30 minute addition that stands out when you look at the car.

Big thank you to @B16Swt for all his help, was a pleasure to deal with and made the transaction nice and simple. Thanks again Sam!

Any comments or criticism welcomed, and as usual thanks for viewing people!

Ek9 doorcards make a big difference to the interior, looks sweet :nice:
Cheers buddy, they really compliment the track vibe that's going on in the cabin, still lots to go into this build, this car will be in my ownership for a while i think, anyway how is your hunt for a new car going? if i remember correctly you were on the hunt for a ek4? that'll be tasty!

Yeah man definitely looks very track orientated.
Let's hope you do keep it for a while, would be good to see how far you take it in the future!
Ah the hunt is basically over, been offered a very clean SSB Ek4, it has no engine although I'm not to bothered as its a minter and got big plans already but I won't say too much as a member on here currently owns it but I'm set on getting my hands on it haha! ;)
