      Heck yeah. Because of the age of the car this video could have easily been 10 years old. G2s how many people are still in love with this car 23 years on. But I think the car needs more modern seats and turbo/ecu - there’s no reason you can’t just stick the stock parts in a closet and revert if you wanted to sell/show it.

      You'll be amazed what you can do the more you do something, everything comes from experience. You're absolutely right about something the "time". I have a evo 8 with a blown fp black turbo sitting in my garage for almost a year waiting on parts to come in. Now that I have everything to complete the job, I need to finish my garage to setup a 9 piece cabinet set so I can work on the evo comfortably, but have very little time.

      @Gergo Antal I detected a slight Irish accent in the author's voice and you're right about the Honda Civic Type R being exported from Japan to only Ireland and the UK due to the steering wheel being on the right hand side. In the opinion of many the 1990's was the best decade for Honda. Honda enthusiasts here in the United States were extremely happy when Honda decided to start selling the type R in the United States back in 2017. Personally my favorite generation of the Honda Civic is the ninth generation of the Civic as it was able to appeal to a broad audience. You had the regular Honda Civic for people who wanted the two things that Honda Civic has delivered in spades: great fuel economy and superb reliability. You also had the Civic SI for people who wanted a little bit more performance from a Honda Civic and the GX, HF and Hybrid versions of the Civic for people who wanted to help the environment. To paraphrase fashion designer Coco Chanel; "You can never go wrong with a Honda Civic." Since 2023 is the fiftieth anniversary of the Honda Civic making its debut in the United States; I can't help but wonder if Honda will release a limited production fiftieth anniversary edition of the Honda Civic for the occasion.

      @Portable Zaps I'm from mainland Europe, and I'm fairly certain the author is from either Ireland or the UK Genuine EK9s were imported to the UK and Ireland due to their RHD only status. Fixing up any car from that state is very time and probably money consuming, you need tools, time and knowledge to do this kinda thing, at least I think.This car specifically has specialty parts and a unique engine, so parts aren't that easy to source I imagine.

    Wow! That is one unreal transformation. 99.99% of specialists wouldn't have gone near that challenge with a barge pole but you took it on without a bother. Is this a hobby or is it a full time gig? You're gifted!
