    Yorkie added a new Honda to the garage:

    No VTEC No Problem

    Check the vehicle's full information here.

    Thought I would add the car to the garage and create a project thread (because who doesn't love reading a good project thread!). I will be posting more pictures of the car when I collect it in March after it's having the arches repaired.

    I am planning on building a all motor K20A2 engine and I am aiming for 350-400whp. I am a complete rookie when it comes to working on cars so this will be a big learning curve for me which is one of the reasons why I chose the EG platform to work on as it is such a simple car to work on, and due to the age of the car anything that I want to do to it, probably has been done before so there will be a guide somewhere on the internet on how to do it (unless the photobucket incident has killed all good how to guides).

    For the K20A2 conversion, I am going to be looking at purchasing a complete EP3 Type-R so I know that all the bits I need from that motor are there and I can transfer over everything to my EG no problem.

    Are there any other Civic owners around the Cheltenham area? Would be cool to get a monthly meetup going at The Highwayman Inn in Chelt.

    I'm looking forward to this build and I hope to make some new friends along the way as well!

    Cheers guys,

    Yorkie.

    I've done a little work on cars before, although nothing major, just the usual coilovers and wheels on my old 3rd Generation golf.

    I'll be looking at using E85 for the tune, but I don't know of any E85 suppliers near me.

    Yea thats what i was thinking, you see the Mericans tuning on it for crazy numbers but they can get it from the pump at $1 a gallon or something. Not gonna happen over here.

    Yeah, E85 is super cheap at the pumps in the US. Wish you could get it at the pumps in England.
