:::Civic Virtue::: 00 Sonic Blue EJ

#1
Just purchased a 00 EJ6 with a B18C/Y80 swap for $2500 off a friend...a steal if you ask me. Anyway it needs some minor work to become bearable to drive, in other words de-ricing. Just shooting for a clean daily driver while the 93 Prelude takes the track abuse...and yes, Sonic Blue Pearl is a Ford color haha. Think Electron Blue but a little darker...

How it started the day I picked it up...chicken wire bumper mesh...


IS300/Altezza rear end??


VatoZone special interior...


Should of kept that bumper sticker eh? Gigantic GReddy Evo 3 inch cat back...


Filthy bay being degreased currently...

A few updates...

Freshly installed KYB AGX/Skunkworks 8K/6K springs


The old eBay coilovers/oem shocks...ricer bounce much?


Color matched the grill...


Moooogen!!


Fresh driver/passenger door panels without ghetto upholstery...

Looking sexy. I like the exhaust but did you change it? Otherwise, awesome EJ with that Ford(+1)paint job.

I was waiting to buff the entire body before pics but maybe I'll snap a few with everything back on soon...and yes, the rear was fixed the same day I bought it haha

The exhaust is the GREddy Evo, I'm not a fan of the huge canisters but for now it suffices. Surprisingly quiet for being test piped, unresignated, and 3 inch from the header back...

Someone needs to jump on these for that price. I've seen them go for over $100 before.

OP----nice adjustments. Too bad the grill doesn't match perfectly, but the car is definitely looking alot better, and I'm sure with more work, it'll be great!

I'll have to hit you back in awhile, just put my money on other necessities

Yeah, mine were doing the same thing. I had to fiddle around with the memory button to get it to lock back where I originally had it, works well now.
