A day at Sportcar Motion…Part 2…

…On with the pics shall we?…

So the crew over at Sportcar was busy all day dropping a built K-series back into a 06 Civic Si. It was a customers car and the outside was relatively stock so I didn’t really get any shots of it on the lift. The main thing that really stood out about it was the valve cover that Loi had powdercoated…

If this EG looks familiar to you, it should. Not only because every car that Loi has is white, but because this was also the project that I first posted when this site got going. Back then it was still 5-lug, K26 swapped, and with a shaved and tucked bay. It has no been taken apart again in preparation for the upcoming Castrol Syntec Top Car Challenge. Sportcar Motion will be working closely with Skunk2, Hondata, and KraftWerks. I’m very excited to see the progress of this car and I’ll try to keep you guys updated on the progress…

KraftWerks will be supplying their K-Series Rotrex Supercharger kit and in combination with the K26 being built, it should make some insane power numbers. Going into the challenge, it might look like the underdog but it’ll definitely be interesting to see how it performs…

Billy’s a close friend of Loi’s and he’s been patiently building this 4-door DB for awhile now. I used to always see it around whenever I would visit and now it just sits pretty in the middle of the shop…

I don’t know how often he cleans it, probably everyday, but this DB is the definition of clean. It’s probably one of the closest you’ll see to a real 4-door Type R aesthetically minus the right hand drive….

I forget the specs but I believe these were 17×8 RG2’s with the offset in the mid 30’s. I haven’t even seen Billy around lately so I didn’t get to ask him…

No K here but a high compression Benson/Laskey built 2.0L GSR swap…

…just one more shot…

I don’t have too many pictures of the exterior, but this is another project Loi and Sportcar are currently working on. Can’t really give out too much info on this one other than it’s a genuine DC2 R that’s been completely stripped and now also K26 equipped…

Loi finally found his unicorn in the form of this Mugen Gen. 2 wing. Pretty much as long as I’ve known him, he’s been searching for this piece. He finally located one from a guy in Japan who happened to be switching this out in place of a J’s Racing wing. Loi was happy to take it off his hands…

K26, looking mighty fine with the powdercoated blue valve cover. Can’t wait to see it when the wheels go on there. It was just sitting on some HFP wheels so it could clear the gigantic Baer brakes but I think the brakes are gonna go because the wheels just don’t fit over the 13-inch rotor. I was just randomly taking pics of it because I was testing out a lens…

Gutted inside with just a seat and Mirarcle Cross Bar…Can’t wait to see how this R comes out…

They won the last time attack with my RG’s on it, hopefully the luck carries over with the R rocking the sticker too…haha…

It was starting to get dark outside so we moved the time attack eg back and got ready for dinner. While Loi was waiting for a customer to pick up a car, I just walked around and snapped some more random shots….

One of my favorite wheels of all time…30s offset Gabs…Looks good on any Honda, believe me…

Rare Toda header that was just hanging in the room where Loi stashes all his old stuff…

After the customer came by, we took off to go eat some Japanese food for dinner and that’s about it….thanks for looking…
