Hey guys/gals. My name is Andrew and I figured I would start off with saying hello. I've been a honda lover since i was 16yrs old and have had my fair share of a few different generations. I've owned a 89 EF w/ a B16 swap and 50 shot, 95 EG hatch, 94 LS Integra and now own a 99 Civic SI w/ minor bolt ons (which my wife drives) and a 97 EK w/ D16-T. After a little bit of background I figured I would say hello to you all and share my pics. Everyone have a good day. If you want any more pics ill see what I can do. All comments, questions, or concerns are welcomed....Enjoy

i seen you post on TurboD16.com but this is the first time i seen your hatch, I have to say that **** looks sick, i wish mine was that clean. Did you swap out the trans for a Y8 or are you rockin the Y7? How does it pull under boost? what hp are you putting down?

Thanks alot bro for the compliment. Actually im still rocking the Y7 tranny. And under boost it pulls ok, i smoke my wife in the SI by a few cars. LOL. And she can drive just as good as I can. As for pwr, im not sure I would say around 160-170 hp. Nothing too big, but 1st gear doesn't exist anymore (wheel spin under boost). So no racing from a dig for me. I plan on posting pics of the motor.

Seems as if this board doesn't get much action...

This site might not be as busy or "elite" as HONDA-TECH, but it is home for me as a hatch/Honda lover. I'm sure most all would concur with my statement.

Thanks alot bro. As for the sunroof, the previous owner had it installed at the Honda Dealer. Was a $1000 install and looks good. As for engine pics im trying to get some asap. Im going to the track on Friday to see how she does. As for doing a HMT kit just remeber you can only pick two of these:

Cheap, Fast, Reliable

Good Luck on the project.
