    Convince me or agree with me

    Hi guys,

    I bought my very first car a Honda Civic EK1 Milano red 6 months ago and have fallen in love with the car and the Honda scene. Since Iíve bought it more power and appearance upgrades have been at the top of my list.

    At the moment I am deciding what to do long term, in the end it is really my decision but I just wanted to get some input on what you guys think, here goes:

    Keep my EK1 learn a load by putting doing a B16A swap, tuning it cams and all that, forced induction, coil overs, sway bars, radiators, tyres etc. With a budget of 8K Ė 11K

    Or:

    Buy an Integra Type R DC2 for 15K and keep it near stock with some mods.

    What do you guys recommend?

    Cheers,

    B18C7 in the EK + boost

    B16 torque is pretty disappointing imo

    sway bars and coils are a must.

    EK4 front and EK9 rear is a good combo.

    Or a B18CR, would the B18C7 fit in an EK1? I'm sure anything will fit with the right budget.

    I say buy a dc2r Type R
    Great valve car for money you pay for

    put some coilovers good tyres and you have killer daily or street car

    Putting money into ek civic is ok short term but bit of wasted long term as you could have bought that Dc2r

    My next honda would be a DC2R if i ever sell my ed9 crx
    If you see a good Technical post giving advice give some postive rep

    Depends what you want. DC2 is an awesome car. But every time I buy a nice ride I feel like the curator of a museum. There's a lot of satisfaction (and pain) in building your own car. But doing all that stuff to an EK will run you way more than the cost of a DC2..

    start with a swapped ek as you will have fun in that as you said you have fallen in love with it... suspension is a must, then mod the b16 different bottom end different cams etc. etc. make it your own don’t follow everyone else’s opinion it’s YOUR car at the end of the day!

    Just my input from experience.

    test drive a Type R DC2. decide which one you feel is the nicest to drive. then, if you want to learn, start by servicing it yourself.



    If you want to go fast get a ZX10R ninja.
