Didn’t Realize

With this last stretch of summer heat left, it made me consider the following topic (sidenote, I remember by this time of the year as a kid, it was already cooler… Even cold. But anyway…). I didn’t realize how much this intake set up is slept on. Honda engineers of that era designed it to comply with the economy and at peak performance, as if they knew they were going to drive the Civic chassis in N1.

But outside of N1 regulations, some still rock the oem air box simply because it works, some even remove the filter completely.

I spoke to Brush Up Osaka and I was told that when their EG6 still had a B swap, they were using the OEM Honda filters in the air box đŸ€Ż

At various track events drivers will opt for the this setup. It’s as if it’s a homage to the N1 days, showing that “yeah I have the OEM air box and I’m passing you on the track” mentality. People will even put their own twist to it by adding a metal intake arm and/or wrapping the air box in heat reflective tape. You’ll even see it on cars that run the kanjo.

Joe’s EF (@carmakeacross) has a built B18C with Jun camshafts making 230hp. While utilizing the OEM intake arm and box.

Mugen and Comptech/CT Engineering iceboxes are essentially fancier air boxes.

At one point, the Real Time Racing DC2 ran a NSX air box.

Don’t knock it if it works. This set up isn’t for everyone, especially if your motor is built for high horsepower. But at the end of the day, give the car what it wants, not what you want. âœŒïžđŸ™

JDM Blue-collar

Shout out to all blue-collar workers out there. The end of the year is coming up, make that hard work pay off; raises, bonuses, etc. I have been busy lately. My job is in the manufacturing field. By viewing these pictures, I can sense the hard work these folks put in. I know where y’all coming from. Peace world.

P.S.,

Kei Miura’s job is considered blue-collar as well…

Endless Dream

💯💯💯!! This life is all we have. Let’s make it a good one.

Life is change. Lately I have been seeing changes everyday. A big part of my life is focusing on the happiness of my family and friends. Sometimes doing that can make you postpone your dreams, that’s quite ok, but never give up on them.

Prior to buying my Civic EG back in 2004, it was a life goal to possess one. Once I had my hands on one, my dreams of how I wanted it kept changing. Today I have it at a state where I want it. I add little things here and there, but the list has gotten smaller. It’s these goals and dreams that keeps me going, it’s my personal happiness. It’s an endless dream of mine. Forever adding little touches here and there. It’s no different from Kei Miura’s dream with TRA Kyoto, Nakai-san with RWB, and Kazuhiro with Osaka JDM.

So it doesn’t matter if your #lifebuild or project car is a storage unit for parts.

The point is to never stop dreaming after you reach your goal.

Peace â˜źïžâœŒïž

October Project pt3

Yee Yee!

Damn it’s been pretty hot these past few days, I thought it supposed to be fall already?! Global warming y’all. Anyway.

The cage is all bolted up!

As I was in the process of cutting the dash,

the electric impact gun which I had since 2004 decided to take a crap. I have a little Dremel however I rather use a bigger tool like an angle grinder or something of that nature (which I don’t have). So I predict the final chapter for this October Project will be this coming weekend!đŸ€ž 😁 Peace for now â˜źïž
