HISTORY, STORY, EXPERIENCE, COMMENTS
This car's been through an incredible amount of changes. It started off as a try hard rice bucket. I learned from my ricey ways and have since updated it to what you see now. It's not perfect and I still have so much planned. Since money is always the limiting factor, I'm picking and choosing what mods make sense and plan for future mods from the list I have going.

It's got about 30,000 miles on it and hasn't given up on me yet (except when I left my lights on one time). It's not fast at all but it certainly is quick. It absolutely loves the bends and can take them exceptionally well. I work on it almost daily doing small touch ups here and there.

The plan is to finish the nitrous, get a pair of slicks and skinnies in the rear and see what it runs in the 1/4mile. I plan on making it a track car however since 4cylinder FWD cars aren't great with the drag strip (Yes I know they can be but I daily this so it has to be semi-reliable).

I had no idea about the new Hondas and really that much about cars before I bought this. I broke my shin skateboarding so I had to pick a new hobby. It ended up being cars; all cars domestic or import. Crossovers are abominations and electric cars are stupid so that landed me with this Civic. Thinking that 2.0 > 1.5, I decided on a LX-P and got an amazing deal on one brand new. I eventually got to the point of no return with the mods I've done so I decided I would be the 2.slow underdog. Now I tell the 1.5Ts when I beat them to trade it in for a 2.slow because I was told to just trade it in if I wanted power. The L15B's aren't great engines so I'm happy with my choice of K20C2 power even if it is a CVT.

Depending on the oiling situation differences between the K20C2 vs K20C1, I might just build this platform out with some custom parts and see what it can handle. Obviously slapping a turbo and calling it a day isn't plausible with the ECU unable to make use of the extra air, so I may build it for spray and lots of it. The goal was 500hp with this chassis but realistically I'm thinking 400hp with enough spray and weight savings to make it compete with cars well above it's displacement and power. Lots of work will have to be done to get it there like the intake manifold rework, pistons, rings, valvetrain, rods, oil issues, and of course the CVT will implode so something will have to be done about that.

We'll see what the future holds for us and so if you've gotten this far thank you for taking the time to read about my build!
