    Ej9 - b18 cvc

    think its time i got the finger out and started a build up thread even though its well on its way into the build :Grin: , goes!

    i bought this car when it was 16 back in 2006 for a small sum of �300 with some minor front end damage, a bonnet, set of EK9 headlights and a bumper later and it was an MOT pass with no advisorys, happy days.

    started off kinda on the wrong path and bought a vented cf bonnet, and angel eyes etc, replica EK9 spoiler, but it was all sold off again



    then came the mods




    new wheels


    this is when all the plans changed and off went the bucket seats, lights, cf hood, stock bumper, and replaced with EK9 parts,




    more honda goodies arrived





    off came the replica spoiler and on went the genuine EK9 one




    EK9/coupe bumper


    square plate and EK9 place recess


    then on went the genuine EK9 lights

    then the car started appearing at car shows over the country and got quite a good bit of positive feed back, red recaro's and carpet fitted, d2 coilovers etc. not much changed after this for a while, untill head gasket failed and just decided to rip the engine out for something better, it was then off the road for a year and a half due to insurance cost/ build cost etc, but thankfully now its out and better than to follow

    big thanks to gerry at performancetek for fitting the engine, i was working full time and alot of overtime so wouldn't manage to do it myself, but he done a good job, good price aswell. anyways, after a long time saving up all the parts i needed i sourced a b18 with 42k on the clock, with brand new ITR cam cover, then it all went off to gerry to get fitted, got it back soon enough and then it lay off the road for a year, due to me being 18 and the insurance not touching me on the engine :Frown: , but i'm 19 now and its all good.

    the car went on the road for about 2 weeks then i blew the diff out the standard gearbox, so it was back off the road then i bought a b16 SIR gearbox with shorter ratio's and a spoon 1.5 way LSD, best mod I've done to the car!, also bought hondata s300 and aem wideband, but its running on a basemap i made myself haha, but it runs decent enough the now, remap needs done ASAP, also fitted blox 70mm throttle body.

    sold the recaro's to my mate, and now just have facelift ej9 seats, but i'm saving for brides (y), got paid off work though so progress is slow at the moment

    very nice car mat, only thing i don't like which is stupid is the fact you got in on bonnet lifters
  17. Garage-12 Top Contributor ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

    cheers :Smile:

    if your meaning the bonnet raised at the back, i'm taking the washers back out, just done it to see what it would look like lol

    Must say i love how far this has come. Must say if i had a white ej9 i would love to do the work you have done.

    What spoon n1 did you get as thinking of getting one for my ej9 once my engine work has started and just wondering wheather to order and EK9 one or ek4?
  19. trav Junior Member ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆ ☆

    OMG i love this!!!
  20. Garage-12 Top Contributor ★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

    thanks :Smile: , i'm sure it was the ek4 one i ordered, but id order the EK9 one cause i think its the hangers are different, EK9 one suits the back lip, where as ek4 sits higher on the bumper, i had to adjust the hangers a bit, the exhaust is the same though.
