Whats Up with ERIC’s Car?! plus k20 how to install.

If you read the last blog post about my brother’s (Eric) car, you’ll know he was half way back to D.C. from Oklahoma when his transmission decided to give up the ghost. You can read all about it here>>>>> http://functiontheory.com/2018/11/erics-car-we-can-rebuild-we-have-the-technology/ So hopefully you’re all caught up to date or, none of this going forward will make much sense. As most people with K20’s know things aren’t cheap, and having your transmission rebuilt is one of them. Since both Eric’s car…

You have what engine in there?!

Imperfectly Perfect

If you were into imports in the late 90’s or even early 2000’s there was no better car to get than a 1992-95 civic hatchback (except for a Integra type r), call it what you like EG, or EH either way it was the holy grail of being an enthusiast of imports. With its incredible lightness, its ease to work on, pretty much anything off an Integra was a direct bolt on/upgrade. these little civic’s were highly sought after for…
