Since I started a thread for my Project ED8, I thought I'd start one for my GE8. It's a 2009 Honda Fit Sport that I bought brand new back in 2008 to replace my old DB8 as my new daily driver. 3 years, 62,000 miles, and she's still running like a champ.

It's has an AT.

Thanks. She doesn't make a lot of power because it's an automatic. I'll post more pictures tonight.

Dump/swap

It's dropped on Eibach Sportline lowering springs right now. Coilovers will be coming soon. Not going to swap because the L17A7 is still running strong.

Low enough for the GE8 to be able to handle the corners properly. I'm more Hellafunctional > Hellaflush.

84whp not HP.

How much are stock single cams producing? Non Ex Models?
84whp is reasonable for a small car. Not enough to fool around, but to drive.

It's all good. I still get pretty good MPG. She's just my daily driver after all.

The power is okay for daily driving, but going uphill sucks. Lol!

I'm sure I'm going to miss the 40+ MPG average too when I give my GE8 to my younger brother in a few months.

I wouldn't be giving this shit to nobody. I love these cars. Nice shots of the wheel and lugs.

Although I was a bit surprised at the numbers. And honda sells this as the "sport"? I'm sure it moves just fine, especially for dd. Clean ride.

My brother is getting his license soon so I'm giving him the GE8 for him to drive. It'll be a load off my parents getting him a used car. I'm planning on getting the 2012 Civic Si Sedan when I do give it to him.

That makes kissing the 40mpg goodbye a little easier. And 4door for the win.

Definitely. At least I'll still have a car that gets 30+ MPG that has twice as much power as the GE8. And yes, 4 doors FTW!

WHat? lol i can fool around on a 5-20 hp go-kart, i can sure a phuck fool around in a 87 hp car.

gota get rid of that " more hp is better" mentality. and remember, a car can not drive itself.

Thanks bro. My GE8 doesn't have much power, but it sure can corner like a champ. At the track, a Corvette and CTS couldn't keep up with me. :mrgreen:

On the way home from work on Monday night, I ran over what seemed to look like a huge motor mount on the freeway. Whatever it was made a huge hole in the b-pipe. Now my GE8 sounds like a lawn mower. No bueno. I'll be ordering a new OEM b-pipe today.

You have that Fit hooked up nice. I had a GE8 too and traded after a year for a TSX. My kids kind of miss the Fit. Okay, I do too lol.

I have a new-found respect for Honda Fits after seeing yours. Too bad you have to give it up, but I'm sure your 2012 Si will be just as nice.

Shit man. Got to be careful out there. I was on my way home from work about a month ago, came over a little hill on the offramp to my street doing about 40mph to see an entire cv axle laying in the road... right in line of my drivers side wheel. I hit the fat boot section so hard it hurt my ass.

It's all good. Shit happens. My new b-pipe should be arriving on Friday. Thanks bro.

Thanks. Yeah, I'm going to miss how spacious the GE8 is. But I'm sure I'll be happier driving the FB6 every day because it has more power than the GE8.

Thanks for the kind words.

I'm usually very cautious when driving. Just one of those times where you can't evade an object because there are cars on both sides of you. Wrong place at the wrong time kind of deal.
