Comparing the differences

Comparing the differences

In this post I’m going to be covering the obvious, and maybe not so obvious differences between my two Civics. The timelines of the builds, what I have learned, the pros and cons of each car, and if it’s possible to “overbuild” you car. Lets first start off with some obvious differences… Ones a four door (EK) and ones a hatchback (EG), one having a K20 the other a D16. As most of you should know (if you’ve been keeping…

Oil changes every 1000 miles, valve adjustments, ignition timing, coolant flush, and trans oil changes every 3000k miles ( or in the case of my race car after every…

Is this the BEST civic ever?!

Is this the BEST civic ever?!

A year ago December, Ever had just gotten back from his tattoo apprenticeship in Washington.  Since he had sold his Tundra to fund his tattoo adventure he no longer had a car that he could drive daily, he was actually just driving around his NSX. Since clearly this was not the best choice for a daily driver, Ever needed a car and even more specifically he needed a Toyota 4Runner. In classic ever fashion he wanted a very specific one…
