I use it and it's great. Check this out:

Today in Maryland we had crazy warm temps around 80. Did an actual car wash with a hose and bucket to get all the salt and winter grime off. Car looks great but not for long. It's supposed to rain here on and off for the next week. But hey, I got the nasty salt off. :thumbsup:
I was going to wash the car but after seeing rain forecast for like the next 5 days I decided to pass.

On other news, I should be getting my KTunerV2 back tomorrow. Let's hope 2nd time is the charm!

Added the OEM JDM foglights and put on the final piece of my interior... my re-wrapped Type-R steering wheel to match the Katzkin leather interior:cool:

Is it a twin turbo? Growing up my dad had one, it's the whole reason for my love of cars today

Yep. 1994 twin turbo manual. Has the solenoid based HICAS vice the older hydraulic based setup.

I've put... well... a brand new Civic worth of money between the cost of the car, maintenance and mods in it over the 5 or so years I've had it. Its not perfect and never will be (I still need to give it a paint job... the factory paint is tired).

Off the top of my head...
740cc injectors with a updated ECU for then to take fancy Eproms (Atari 2600 baby)...
Upgrades turbos...
A pretty unintrusive AEM Tru Boost to play the role of gauge/controller...
Intercoolers...
Dual intakes with separate MAFs and a Selin translator...
Upgraded clutch...
Downpipes... exhaust...
I replaced the factory adjustable dampers with NOS factory adjustables so it all still works...
Ripped out the failed BOSE and put in a decent 4 channel amp and 4 6.5 speakers in the doors and back...
New leather interior pieces...
Essentially a entire new A/C and coolant loop.

Other than the HICAS... it's only 'driver aid' is ABS. It's not a very easy car to drive fast' as it tend to either bog or just break the rear end loose off the line. If I'm going 60 MPH and it's cold, the car will break the rear end loose when it hits full boost in 3rd. I have to turn it down in the winter.

It is the only model Z car I ever loved.

It also hasn't gotten very much attention since I got the 10th gen. A testament to have good/fun it is. It is a much easier car to drive hard. The Z can be like balancing on a razors edge.
