Daryl’s Rally K-EG Build…Introduction

20 Jan

TDSAutoMag

Today we have an exciting post in store for you guys. As the title states, we’ll be giving you a behind-the-scenes look at the rebuild of Daryl Clarke’s K-powered EG Civic. Some of you may be wondering, what’s so exciting about this? And who is this Daryl Clarke we speak of? In that case, we’ll give you guys a little background to the name…

Daryl recently decided to change things up a bit and tried his hand at building a Honda and since then has never looked back. Since its debut this car has never missed a beat or lacked in performance or reliability. Throughout the season Daryl had a number of back to back wins in his group, Modified 7. Of these, he was first in his group in the Caribbean’s biggest annual motor sport event ‘Sol Rally Barbados’. As Daryl continued to pile up victories, and with the…

Track Bred EG6 Build…Introduction

6 Jan

TDSAutoMag

Today you guys are in for a special treat…

For the past couple of months there were rumors going around about an insane EG6 Civic being built for the track. The thought of this intrigued us to go out in search of this under the radar project. With a mere snippet of luck we were able to meet up with owner, Jerry Leach.

Upon sight, what we were greeted with was without a doubt way beyond expectations. He had taken basically every enthusiast’s dream of building the ultimate project car and made it into a reality.

Let’s go back to the very beginning when Jerry acquired the car. His goal was to build what was, in his eyes, the ultimate track car. Naturally, being a fan of Honda’s K Series motor, this would be the obvious powerplant of choice to drive this project. With this said, the next step was to hopefully…

Kei-Car: B16 Honda Beat

30 Dec

BobsYrUncle

I wanted to do a little change up from the SEMA coverage. I’m sure everyone’s a little bored of it.

I thought this was a pretty bad ass find and not something we see a lot of, specially in the states.
A normally 600cc Kei car this Honda Beat is equipped with a B16 and some pretty clean aero by Back Yard Special add some sticky tires and voila makes for a huge difference. I’m sure this car is fun to take around the track.
Check it out.

Honda Civic EK3 H22A – From Poland with Stance

Honda powered Fiat X1/9

31 Oct

Old Car Junkie

I’ve always liked Fiat X1/9s and I’ve always liked engine swaps This combines both into a slick, factory spec looking package. The Fiat X1/9 has always had more handling than motor but the engine compartment is rather small which limits what you can swap into them with hacking the whole car. This Honda swap looks fantastic and with a B18c of almost 200hp it would be a rocket.

See more photos and a write on the X Web Forums and his previous B16a engine swap.

Honda Engine Swaps 101 – What fits into what?

31 Oct

Import Insider

Overview

In order to properly cover every aspect this section will be broken down into many sections. First, its important to decide what you’re goals are. If you’re interested in running 15 second quarter miles without hassle or complication then finding a B16 is probably your best bet. Some of us are interested in running 11 and 12 second quarter miles. For this type of performance it’s important to plan every detail so that the engine is capable and reliable when asked to perform. Another part of planning that should be done before the swap begins is whether or the engine will be naturally aspirated or have forced induction. These are all questions that need to be answered before the swap so that you’re satisfied when everything is complete.

Finding the Proper Engine:

There are many engine choices for each vehicle so we’ll cover all of them. First it’s important…
