So I've had big power jdm cars before and my last car was a Nissan skyline r33gtst, 2.5 running 360bhp, with not much mods but I sold that and got an 2007 Audi a4tdi which I still have after 3 years of ownership, , and i go to York raceway to watch the drag racing and it made me wanna get bck to having a toy, so I decided to buy a civic after seeing a tonne of vids on YouTube so I found a 2000 plate ej9 1.4 for £100 I, next was to decide on what engine to use b16 or b18 or k20'so I went with b18c4 with 65k miles on it, full conversation gearbox is a s9b or b9 drive shafts etc,
Next I wanted to know what ecu to use p28 or p30 so I went with a p28 socketed ecu, manifold I went for a ram horn style with 38 mm external wastegate,
TURBO CHOICE now I had a Borg Warner s256 in the garage and was going to use that but I decided to use a holset hx35, rated to 500-600 bhp with a bonnet style exhaust pipe 3"
FUELING, I've fitted a AEM 340lph fuel pump, with AEMfuel rail and Siemens deka 875cc fuel injectors
clutch I've fitted a stage 3 6 pad paddle clutch
Cooling I've gone with oversized FMIC, with hand made pipe work to fit, blue silicone joint hoses, alloy rad,
Wheels well I'm gunna be running the same tyres n rims that to see in the pics until I buy some road legal slicks, with 13" rims
The paint work wasn't the best so I painted in in the drive with cans of Matt black paint,
The power is currently a 350bhp but power is restricted as the wastegate is creeping boost at 7000rpm and is too small so need to get a bigger wastegate and 3bar map sensor, and I should be pushing well over 400bhp so enjoy the pics and no nasty comment lol.........
