So after lurking for like ever on this forum that has been helpful to me many times, I have decided that you guys deserve to see yet another K24 build (how original).
I know you guys have seen a million K swaps already but I want to show you mine.
You all will have to excuse my poor english skills.
My story begins February 27th 2017 when I went to Portugal to buy my self a birthday present.
I bought this 1997 Honda Civic EJ9. It has a more than humble D14A4 pushing no less than 90hp. It is very close to the USDM EJ6 CX Civic but with a destroked D16.
It was my first car, and it was a blast to drive every day.
Those pics were taken the very first day I had it.
I had a fake Mugen lip that the previous owner broke the day before I bought it, so I removed what was left of it.
Then it sat for a while until I was able to bring it to Spain.
The first thing I did after I had it here, was some weight reduction and yellow tint for the headlights.
After that I went to test it with a couple of friends in the place where this car belongs, on some mountain roads on a rainy day.
Other than being deeply underpowered, it behaved amazingly well.
But since I brought it from Portugal, I noticed something: It smoked a lot.
Turns out the previous owner never changed the oil and it caused some damage to the engine to the point were it started burning lots of oil.
But at that moment I was a broke boy so there was nothing I could do about it besides cheking the oil level every once in a while.
My next mod was to install some D2 Racing coilovers, to make it handle even better.
Also I removed the head unit and all the speakers for further wheight reduction.
Car felt great after I installed those coilovers, but my driving style exceeded my tires hability to mantain grip.
I had some Toyo Proxes CF2 that honestly, I didn't like how they behaved on wet pavement. Besides, I got bored of those 14 inch wheels, so I found a set of Kosei Seneca RT wheels in 16x7 et38.
I also got some fresh Federals 595RS-Pro to go with my new rims.
Later I got a set of reverse white tail lights that I bought from a fella from Germany who I used to talk a lot to.
