My Civic v11.0.2

Needless to say it has been one…

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…

Vegas Drift 1/28/17

This was the first event of the 2017 season, and it was held on my most favorite track of all the Vegas layouts the outside road course. With about only 20 drivers drifting on the actual road course (north course) and (main course) it left those drivers that showed up with more seat time than they could handle,not only was the drivers roster low but we were lacking event staff too.  I was asked to run the north course which…

Athazagoraphobia

                   As I come into the home stretch portion of my K-swap I took a moment to reflect on why this has been such a time consuming swap.

Motorcycling has pretty much taken over my life, helped influence my friends to get motorcycles, or to get more serious with motorcycles. after acquiring my Brothers FZ 09 in…

My work is done

It’s official, Erics car is all the way done, K pro and tuned by church automotive. It’s an indescribable feeling to have seen this project from start to finish, too see the happiness that his car brings him makes everything worth it.

How to clean K20 Idle Air Control Valve ( IACV )

                  I am making this post because… When i first started up my brothers K swap I was first excited that it was running well,, but after a min of smooth idle it would begin to surge. Which as most Honda owners know its most likely a Throttle Position Sensor ( TPS ) issue or a IACV issue. So after checking my voltage and correctly setting the TPS the motor would still…
