I vomited when I saw the outside, then vomited 3 more times when i saw that POS sound system. If he put that money into making the car look professionally ugly on the outside he could of at least spent a good amount of money on making the sound system decent!

You beat me to it man, I was going to post it and say "Making Oomba's Day".

Seriously though, if you have that much money to waste, so many better things to be done to it.

I don't think anybody here will find it very interesting to listen about how I miscalculated the distance and almost ended up with 3 tires on the sidewalk... Feel free to tell them how you totalled the car on the Boulevard though...3 cars actually.

The design is rather unique in a way. And he has done a few things I have never seen before. The gas door on the roof, and the air intake coming out of the hood. Uniquely ugly

His hatch is very boxy from the factory... Like all 88-91 hatches.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/Honda...spagenameZWDVW

The 4th gen Civics can be made pretty quick pretty easily. The '91 Civic Si had a D16 with 108hp. That's the quickest stock USDM model. Japan got the SiR and SiRII 88-91 Civic Hatch with 160ps while Euro got a similar 1.6i-VT model with 150ps. The Si hatch only weighed 2275lbs. A lot of people though who go mostly for performance get the DX hatch which weighed only 2150lbs (both the DX and Si are only made "fast" IMO with a motor swap).

Two common motor swaps in this hatch is tha B16a1 (160hp) and the DOHC ZC (130hp).

Those are great little cars. Im thinking of getting one for my first car. I drove my cousins the other day and liked it. For only 108hp it had some get up. It has a 5-speed so it was pretty fun. I need something good on gas anyway, if I was to get a muscle car like I originally wanted it would kill my wallet

A H22a engine swap sounds pretty good to me

The VX wieghed in at 2094 lbs. and offered absolutly nothing. No power anything, no a/c, and a super efficient/wimpy 1.5L making 92 Hp @ 5500 RPM.

(For those of you who care)

That is by far the ugliest Body kit I have ever seen on an EG in my life (and I've seen ugly)!!!!! I'm not sure if I like the air intake poping out of the hood though. But you have to give whoever did the bodywork credit. Not one seam, crack, misalignment, the work looks professional. To bad it's hideous!
