Hi guys, new to the site. Have had a few Hondas over the years and then bought a truck but now came back. Bought a 00' Civic EX from a kid that had it thrown in front of his house for months. D16y8 turbo setup. Runs ok for the most part. Needs interior work amongst many other things. Looking to build engine stronger to hold more boost. Will continue to post project build over time.. Thanks!

Engine upgrades? Internals?

Just curious, as when buying someones else's project I have found you might as well plan on a full tear down rebuild to ensure correct parts and quality.

What are your goals over all, daily beater, racer boy status, weekend toy?

Yes, engine internals to hold solid boost and reliability.

Since it was someone else's project i am pretty much tearing it down and rebuilding as far as engine and tranny goes. Paint is also coming, sticking with white. Also a suspension overhaul and much needed interior tlc.

Goals for this build is the reliability of a daily and performance of a track car. Will definitely see lots of drive time.
