Tomei type R, for my type R

Tomei type R, for my type R

On February 16th, 2019, Evasive Motorsports posted a picture on their Instagram of the Tomei Type R exhaust for the FK8 platform.  The caption read, “coming soon”. At that time, I didn’t know if I was ever going to get a Civic Type R, or that it wouldn’t be for another three years until I actually purchased a Civic Type R, but I knew then, I NEEDED that exhaust! I wanted this exhaust so badly… I had even thought about…

FK8 Mugen kit

FK8 Mugen kit

Sure, sure… Let’s get it all out right now. “Fk8 StArTeR PaCk” or “YoU hAvE gOoD mOnEy BuT nOt GoOd TaStE”. Yes, it’s true, the Mugen aero kit is one of the most played out things on a FK8 other than maybe TE37’s, Pilot Sport 4’s, PRL HVI, or AWE exhaust. Almost a year ago to the day, I purchased my FK8. And like most, I too had a list of things that I wanted to do to the car…

Evers newest financial mistake (PT8) the finale!

Evers newest financial mistake (PT8) the finale!

On January 8th, 2022, Ever picked up this “mechanics special” of an S2000. Over the past four months we have spent every Thursday transforming it from Jalopy to JDM gem. Due to our different work schedules, Thursdays are the only day we are both off together. We start off every Thursday meeting at 8am at my house, from there we would get some “coffeine”, then come back and hit the garage. A normal Thursday is usually 12-15 hours in the…

My FK8 gets serious cooling upgrades

My FK8 gets serious cooling upgrades

It’s no secret that the FK8 is plagued with overheating issues. It seems like no matter what I try and do to combat the overheating, it still rears its ugly head. Of course, I’m only experiencing overheating issues when I’m pushing the car hard on track. During any other type of driving though, the car is fine and is always below 190 degrees. The current mods I have installed to help prevent it from overheating are.. First molding vented hood….

Evers newest financial mistake (PT 7)

Evers newest financial mistake (PT 7)

As you can tell from the last few parts of this series, Ever’s build is getting serious pretty quick. I do want to stress again. The KWs were NEVER planned to be a part of the build. We honestly had every intention of just going GC/KONI. The fact is, Ever is on OfferUp and Marketplace more than most people are on Instagram, which played a big role on how he ended up getting the KW’s. Plain and simple, it was…

Ever’s newest financial mistake (Pt 6)

Ever’s newest financial mistake (Pt 6)

Please tell me you didn’t actually think Ever was going to attempt tracking his car on those BC coilovers that came on the car. I’ll admit, High-end mono-tube 3-way adjustable coilovers weren’t a part of the original plan. We were just going to get him some Ground Control/Koni Yellows and call it a day. As many of you know, GC/Koni is a great option for those who are looking to have a car that will handle some track time and…

Ever’s Newest Financial mistake (PT 5)

Ever’s Newest Financial mistake (PT 5)

Welcome to part 5! This S2000 has gone through quite the transition over the last 4 parts and honestly, we still have about 3-4 more parts to go. I’m shocked just as much as you are that Ever hasn’t lost interest and began to shift his attention to something else. For some strange reason though, Ever really likes this car. While recently working on this car I even heard him say “I like working on this car”. There is a…

Finally, SUB 2:00!

Finally, SUB 2:00!

5 years ago, going “Sub-2” at Buttonwillow 13cw was a major milestone and would receive high praise. Fast forward a few years, tire technology, increasingly faster production cars, and the soaring popularity of “tracking” have helped to make “Sub-2” a more common phrase. Now, don’t get me wrong, a “Sub-2” is still an impressive lap time. I just feel as if, the term “Sub-2” has been thrown around too loosely and has even lost some of its allurer. Now days…
