Kday! C5 Japan 2015 Coverage…Part 2…

Well, today is one of those days that feels like it is going to be a jam-packed one filled with a ton of work so I’ll jump right into the coverage of Kday C5. It is already the first of October which means that Year 7 is just 30 days away now and I know this month will just fly right by. There are 31 days in this month but for me, I think it’ll feel like 15. I still have a bunch of photos to go through for the site, Wekfest Texas 2015 is two weeks away, there’s more prep for the Year 7 event that needs to be done and I also have a wedding I need to go to. There are also two stories on my desk for Super Street that need to be finished so I am a bit overwhelmed at the moment. The Time Attack Civic that Yuta has been working on is currently away at paint but I’ll be back providing more updates on it as soon as I get some news from Premier Auto Body regarding the status of the body work. It is coming together rather quickly so I think you guys will be surprised by how it looks once all the custom body pieces have been smoothed out. The Rywire Integra build is also nearing is final stages before the car is fired-up so I have to make a trip over to Rywire soon to see the progress on that build. Ryan is currently working on the electronics of the car, which is probably the most taxing of the entire build, so it remains to be seen just how much work is involved before we hear that thing fire up for the first time. Anyways, I gotta dive right back into work so enjoy the coverage today. There are some really good builds in this post so make sure to give it a thorough look over….Have a good one folks…

Thanks once again to Shota Mori (@pgm_works) for providing the great photos…

Makoto Kikuchi’s Mazda MPV is probably one of the most unique builds you’ll ever see in Japan currently. It has a turbocharged engine swap from a Mazda Speed 3 along with a 6-speed manual transmission that took quite a bit of work to fit and operate correctly within the body of this MPV….

21512086630_a3d1eb6c0c_o

His ITR has been down for quite some time now as it was getting completely resprayed in black. You may remember his Integra being Championship White before with the same complete Mugen aero package all the way down to the signature Mugen side stripe. Gone now is the stripe and the black makes the car look way more menacing…

  1. Morning joey, I believe the white TL is on 3rd gen TL a-spec wheels. Although the RL ones look very similar except them being 5×120. I could be wrong though haha
