Got my feet wet with my VW but I felt it was time to move on to something else. I wanted to go with a Honda for a while. After searching around I got myself an 1996 EK hatch with a B16A2 swap from a 1999 Civic Si from a local guy. I am building this car for stage rally first, but I am going to try to mee H1/H2 Honda Challenge rules so I can do road races at Mid-Ohio if I want.
Goal right now is to get out on the stages first and then slowly upgrade/replace parts as I go along. I'm probably going to get sucked into building a super car, but that's way beyond my budget. I want to make the car drivable/presentable for track day testing with rally debut for at LSPR for MaxAttack! in October.
I'll do my best to keep updates on this and index everything on this first post so people can do a quick reference.
So let the build begin!!!
