    hi im RON from dirty ol southend

    and I've been lurking on here for sometime reading threads,

    i had an 04 CTR and that went well,for a daily driver

    but im after some real beans and I've got a 69 mini pickup running a 1.3 turbo setup, with gas, good for 250hp but unreliable as the british summer....






    so I've been debating on a RWD setup as i have the space,

    then it was the choosing of an engine,

    i was after some thing reliable so it was going to be jap, and alloy,so jap again,

    liking the way my CTR went i thought about a B-series, but the cost of a motor on its own is crazy plus the mods....it didnt really work out good for my pocket,

    then i came across a 11sec Civic,FWD ofcourse and i was blown away so started looking into it, and it came up

    I don't know if you're going to find a FD with 2.9 unless you get it made.

    I've seen that MFactory do alot of FD kits and they might be the best people to ask about it but i doubt its going to be cheap.

    forget the name tho,

    failing that il have to go up to 13's

    recognise that from the mini turbo forums :Smile:

    Id be loathed to cut up a pickup for RWD, if I had to it would only be for a K (honda one not a crap rover one) :Smile:

    This does sound like a good idea.

    K24 In the rear off a mini weighing in at only 655kg.

    I slightly sense death?
  6. Performancetek Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    nah, my plan doesnt involve death, it involves K24 AWD so it should be a bit safer :Smile: once the EG sells....

    k from a Prelude?

    its a bit on the large side,

    but what is the main differance that would sway you from a D to a B series?(16)
  8. Sam. Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    K20 from a EP3 Type-R.

    From D - B if your staying N/A then you get Twice as many cams and higher horsepower as standard.
  9. Performancetek Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    K series if from Civic Type-R, accord S etc.

    as far as honda engines go, they are the future. so much more potential than the older ones :Smile:
