My EK Sedan/Ferio turbo project

Recommended Posts

This is the car that replaced my 6g accord after i sold it because the gearbox decided it wanted out, so I decided not to bother to spend anymore money fixing it up as it was needing something replacing every week! I didn't like the car that much to keep on fixing it. So this EK saloon I have now is so much better and is worth me spending some cash on it as I love the thing! Not many of these around! I also have plans to turbo it, there's alot more parts available for this than my old accord. And it also seems a bit quicker even though it's a 1.5! Got a lot planned this civic

it shure is, but it's a good car even though the insurance is 300 a month! But to me it's worth it. The plans are to get the bits together for a turbo setup, that will happen next summer when we have better weather, and also got a lot planned for the exterior too! Might put an MA8 front end on her because I miss my old one :( this car is the same colour as my old MA so I had to get it :)

Nice to see the 4 door version mate. There's a VTiS style body kit available for the 4 doors too If i remember rightly. MA front end conversion would look mega different, would kinda give it the Honda Domani look, although the ek rear end is a lot nicer than the Domani. Will be watching this one take shape!

I'll look into the VTi body kit should be easy for an Ek, I'm going to find an MA in the scrap yard and take the front end and hopefully it should bolt straight on. The car also passed its MOT today after a little welding work so I'm happy it was only that. Will be starting work on this car tomorrow so keep a close eye for up dates.

Few little updates on my Ek ive brought a manifold from the scrapyard so I can get that nasty power sucking catifold off! I've also brought some team dynamics monza alloys for her too, and today I had my pro bomb back box welded on so she sounds nice and raspy now 😎 I'll get a picture up of it on the car. Ive also had the tracking done all round for good measure. Still loads to do to her, carnt wait for better weather!

Oh nice, a Sedan! I love these cars and I was going to get one a few months back. My mate has also got a EK3 Sedan, which is a pre-facelift i think

Nice care mate.

 

I've paid £2300 one year before! (rover 1.4 16v twin cam = 6 points and crash) but i had modified the tits out of it so paid up. 

 

You just have to pay what you have to pay these days. Will be cheaper in a few years. Enjoy driving, it's only money at the end of the day, better to spend money on things you can show for it.
