Our Civic is NASTY - Engine work begins! (EP4)

The build of our nugget Civic continues but nothing is going to plan. 4 different owners have come out claiming they owned it and we work out why it smells so bad. Plus we come to the realisation that we don't have any Honda friends that can help us...

    I've had a K series build, and I'll have another soon. I love them! However, B series builds are just as cool. And honestly the amount of money you pay for dumb shit for the K builds, it gets hard to justify. At least that's how it was back then; I've no idea if prices have come down. I remember my B series friend getting a wicked ecu, retail, for less than a reflash of my K ecu let alone what I paid for a full unit! And it's like that for *everything*

    hondas ecus can do all that exept electronic throtle (don't see the great advantage in that) and individual coil packs (can be done obviously but not out off the box), and hondas ecus know witch gear you're in so you can set different boost for each gear... I got here because i'm a honda guy but I unsubscribed from this channel because not everybody have 10 million sponsors to get a hole new car for free and replace EVERY part and throw everything in the bin, free aftermarket ecu, free tune, free everything... try do a reasonable budget car for once....

    you get to see a person's knowledge about cars by watching them build a honda. Clearly honda's are known for their reliability and handling, not horsepower and quarter mile times. But many people on youtube would take these cars and build an ultra fast motor just to send them down a straight line and people think hondas suck cuz theyre slow. Thats not the point of these cars. Marty mentioned many times that honda put a lot of effort into developing the handling. MCM is probably the only youtube channel i know that does handling mods to use the car up to it's full potential. I like that they know what types of mod to do depending on what car they build.
