Spoon your SKUNK until he MUGENS - CIVIC Build (EP5)

This Civic already stinks so we may as well add a Skunk. We saved this nugget from automotive apocalypse and now we are fixing it. But the more we do, the more problems we find. Luckily we bought a 2nd hand Skunk and fed it some Mugen with a spoon...

    Hondas have the most aftermarket part out there for mods from simple mods for your daily driver to aggressive track cars. Very easy to work on after you own one thus the thousands of how to do videos.

    Those plastic intake manifold gaskets do not seal for shit. They do well at blocking heat soak to the manifold but are not good especially on boosted cars. Speaking from personal experience with my boosted s2k

    If you can find part numbers online, the dealer will get you the parts without even asking for the vin. Since you have the part number they know you know what you're doing, and if you don't know what you're doing and you order the wrong part, they're covered since you were the one to provide the wrong part number.

    Can you really not order parts without a VIN in some places? In America I get asked for a VIN, but I usually just say "don't have it" because they are long as heck over here and the guy on the other side of the line is just like "alright" and gets me the part.

    Honda love in my family started when my parents got a yellow first gen civic hatchback in college, brand loyalty ever since. In Canada we might have had Ladas and Hyundai Ponies but they were rubbish compared to Civics. When I got into the car scene it was a little disheartening to hear the Honda hate, but anyone revving to 8k at 2 in the morning with a fartcan is going to frustrate people I suppose. To answer you Moog, good on gas and reliable compared to some domestic stuff, especially in the 90s/2000s era for our specific market. I’m sure in the land of Jimnys and Daihatsus we’d be scoping out alternative small cars

    Hey guys ,I really do think that's the wrong oil pump, "PR4" is a part # for the non-vtec engines (B18A/B), you would need "PR3" (B16A1-4) or "P72" (B18C1) or "P73" (Type-R)

    I currently have an ST205 Celica GT4 and a 98 Integra (essentially a civic). My Honda is closer to my heart than the GT4. As others have said, there is something about the 'feel' of the car. I feel like Hondas are the energetic puppy, happy to spring up and go for a run. Then of course super reliable. I also enjoy things that rev!

    Canadian perspective on the honda love: Performance japanese cars in decent shape are $20k, civic in decent shape $2k. Everything here rusts so if it wasnt made in the millions or the last 10 years it is just crazy expensive.

    So in the states we hate on people with civics because they are usually rice boxes. I like the old 90's hatch backs and curvy (or boxy but that's the only way I like a curved hatch) usually, or unless they have lots of meetup lines without being bulky like a widebody BRZ or GT86 or something with tons of aero. although WRC cars really do something for me. I like a sleek design with a curvy hatch. slammed hatch I prefer either way.

    You should never ever use brake cleaner to clean something before you weld. I know you said you brushed it and cleaned it again.. but welding over residual brake cleaner can produce phosgene gas that can kill you. If you use brake cleaner, make sure it's non-chlorinated.

    Civic had built a reputation for reliability in the US by the 90's. That has a lot to do with it. Affordability was probably next, parents bought their kids these for their first car....and then there is the ubiquitous nature of the vehicle and its parts. Anyone can work on them....mix in a movie called Fast and Furious, and boom...

    Moog you asked why a Civic? Here in Canada they were everywhere. The age of F&F was a big motivator and the fact that things are cheap and easy to work on. Great starter car. My 97 Si really helped me be able to work on my 17 Golf R and 17 Focus RS. I still have the old girl, but its on the back burner now obviously.

    Not sure if you really care, but in the early 2000’s the WRX, Evos, and the STI came to the USA. My 93 civic with less than $8000 total invested including the purchase of the car, gobbled all these cars up. I made 215.4whp with an LS/vtec build and my car weighed barely over 2000lbs. I ran 12’s at the strip and the car was my daily driver, not comfortable though. Not the fastest car, but very little on the road could keep up on mountain roads or from a dig. It was fun, loud, scary at speed, cheap, and quick. My civic had a reputation, people sought me out to race. I was “that green 4-door,” it still makes me laugh. Miss that car. K-series are awesome, but my heart is with the b.
