Hey guys i've been looking around on all these honda forums for a while now, but just got my first car, a teal 93 ej2. Completely stock, so i think it's time to finally join eh? =)

Just purchased the car a few days ago, no pics of it yet, but i have big plans for it! It's a little difficult since i've grown up my whole life around mustangs and other fords with my mom, dad, and brother. Hear a lot of crap about 4 cylinders lol but i'm trying to learn as much as i can and i'm hoping you all will be a great help in the future! Won't be much mods soon though as i don't have a job atm, but will be working at the start of november for sure so hopefully they'll be coming in soon!

I've also been seeing LOTS of hondas around bama now so hopefully will meet some of you guys from here!

oh yeah, anyone know where i can find some white Rota Group N's??
Thanks!:D

Don't let them knock on the 4bangers. Yea, torque is torque... and civics have none of it. But at the end of the day, the majority of us still just use our cars to get from one place to another. The difference is, you're paying half of what they are for gas!

Anyway, Welcome

So now you'll get to enjoy reliability, good build quality and good fuel economy.:lol:

Welcome to the club. And yea enjoy the fact that you can fill up for about 30 dollars while they pour about 50 into their tank to fill it up and then point and laugh when you see them at the gas station and you still have 3/4 of a tank lol :)

The teal has always been my favorite color of that generation, it really stands out.

Welcome to CC! So, you're getting the car from a dealer..that must be a clean looking 5th gen. Are you getting it 5spd??

I was skeptical about color at first, but after seeing the car and cleaning it up this weekend i love it. It's not 5spd though.. But later on i plan on swapping the motor and trans so no worries!
But yeah got it from a dealership, the guy builds and races hondas, it was only 1700 so i think it's a great deal. Has some hail damage though.. but not too bad
Anyway i'm getting my internet hooked up again today, so i'll post up pics when i can!

Download the tapatalk app from the appstore or you can just use your phones browser and upload from there,both work..I would reccomend tapatalk

Just some pics at my dads after I installed my new corners

Half of the bay lol. Autozone intake that the guy already had installed. Cleaned the bay up a little after I got it home but still needs some tlc

Also threw this muffler on. Dunno anything about it just had it laying around at my dads. Off an old accord i believe

Thanks! I really like it but I'd really like a da teg or a hatch. But I'm sure I'll love it if I swap it or boost it
