    it looks like hes running stock disks there? or at least the stock size? :? also it may have been an idea to manufacture a proper diffuser rather than an air brake.


    oops just noticed the five stud :Angry:

    haha in the mag the guy was like "yeah i had a k20'd Civic n wanted something bigger and better" or something along those lines... did it all himself in his typically uber sized american garage

    what the engine from? he could have made it fit better...

    its from a cls over in the states, not available here unfortunately, i thought it was an NSX engine when i got the mag but sadly no. still fast on the strip. I think hed be hard pushed to get the engine further into the engine bay, its hanging out of the bottom as much as the top

    he obv didnt try hard enough... lol


    whats it put out? don't really need to do it do you, i mean you can get the same power from a straight 4 and it would wiegh less?
     
  15. Gunter Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    yeah hes done the k20 route already and wanted something different, if youve got enough torque then you won't notice the extra weight :Wink: power is nothing

    wouldn't say nothing but i see your point. I like it! shame the engine is coverd in cheepy cheap plastic!

    i should have said torque is everything, power is everything else. Sometimes a metallic paint job on rockers isnt the best way, the car looks awful compared to the engine, completely black would be better IMO.
