Fixed Honda! 

Look it is shiny again!  and now it looks better than ever with its body color trim pieces! It will also handle and stop better with its new rear disk brakes and some new suspension parts.

Just compare to the pictures from earlier posts to see the difference.

My Honda

Here are some shots of my honda civic that I have done some work on.  It is still a work in progress, but it already goes pretty quickly (250 hp in a 2000 lb car).  I built the engine and did lots of calculations for sizing everything (many spreadsheets and many hours welding and fitting). I am currently having the body fixed and I will be setting up the data acquisition system when I get back to the states.  (Parts I did not do myself, roll cage, new downpipe and exhaust, seat mounting, installation of the sleeves)

Italian Cars

In Italy one substantial difference from the States is the huge  (viral?) number of hatchback cars.  So far I have probably seen less than 10 non hatchbacks in 5 days.  The driving style and parking techniques are very impressive.

Parts for Hondata S300 installThis is the Hondata S300 I installed in my ECU so I could tune my car (more on that later).  The S300 is an awesome tool that enables USB tuning and adds many features to the Honda ECU.
