OK, so this is my second attempt at this build. My last build was involved in a tragic accident that not only cost me my car but cost me my best friend so this build is for my boy Joshua Ryan O'Keefe

My first attempt:http://www.8thcivic.com/forums/car-builds/211570-07blacksi09s-ek-kswap-build.html

So after looking..... and..... looking for ANOTHER clean EK I finally found one. :dancing:

This car actually wowed me when i saw it in person because i had to actually look for body damage and there's is very...very..very little at that. With it being clean and all there are some issues like the suspension is pretty shot and the interior was eh lets just say they liked to eat.

What to see in this build???? To much plans to list just follow along and enjoy :usa:

Surprises to follow :)

awsome brah.. like this one better then the last cant wait to take some pixors......

question removing the sound deadening does what? i cant imagine the weight loss is worth it ?
well i have two reasons 1 is weight yes but the main reason because im gutting it out and painting the interior so taking out the sound deadening gives it a more smooth/clean look

btw you wouldnt believe how much that stuff weighs i put it in a trash bag and its already about as heavy as a overfilled kitchen trash bag would feel and its only a quarter of the way full.

I'm actually looking forward to this.
thanks Jared

:drooling: i want an ek, you should slam it more! btw whats sound deadening?
SLAM IT MORE!!!!!!?????? lol im already having enough trouble getting in and out of the driveway...maybe if you see me at a show one day in florida ill have it slammed other than that i like to keep it from getting stuck on the railroad tracks

sound deadning is the black rubber stuff under your carpet and seats to keep the noise level down

yeah true but im not really worried about the weight... they proved every 100lbs taken away takes away .10 off your track time but what sucks about it is in order for that to be true you have to launch at the same time every time....lol unless your a nhra driver i dont see that happening very easily....found that out in school and thought it was funny cuz people take their spare tires out of their full interior car at the track
