Hello Guys.

As some of you might now 3 years ago i started my own business in performance parts for Hondas and Acuras and i havent really had a shop project so far.
Well the time has come and finally we will be starting soon what will be our "business card".

This car will be show and go and will be a long term project since it involves a lot of work. Fortunately we have some companies, that we sell their products, that are interested in the project and have already expressed some form of sponsorship or help. We look forward into getting some more confirmation from other companies we deal with.

Lets start with the car.. There is not much to show right now as the project will probably start in a month but hey... atleast we got a car which we got for free. Shocked

The car is a 1989 Civic DX Hatch Automatic,to be converted to Manual.

Our Goals for engine are 450-500whp on a Single cam 1.5lt bottom with a D16 head. We would like to run 10.39 sec or faster @ 139-142 mph with this car and keep it on a street car form. After those goals are met we will then go for an all race setup.

Here are some pictures:




First steps are to get a JDM SiR2 front, strip the car completely, Send it to Pro Drag El Paso for a Custom 8pt rollcage and then to the Paint shop.

After that is done we will start working on the engine.

Does anyone knows where can we pick up the front end? It seems all the places we had in mind are out of it for the next 3-4 months.

Even though it won't turn any heads right now, I know that you will do wonders with it. Thanks for sharing.

Reminds me of my gold hatch a while ago. How much are you willing to spend on front? And complete hood, front bumper all lights fender etc?

Well this project took a lil bit of a shift.. we found a
1992 Si shell so we got it and now we will be building that. Much easier, no need to replace front and p need to convert to manual.
