My mate has been rebuilding a 2000 plate ragged DC2 for the past 5 years. After many set backs and problems,it is finally on the road..and my god what a car it is now. Started out with a forged prelude 2.2 engine swap,which gave him nothing but problems,so took the drastic step of ripping it all out again,and going for a standard 2.3 accord type S lump. Which was then turbo`d using the best parts money could buy. many,many problems with getting it in the car,as well as using the later spec 6 speed gearbox for a uk spec Civic Type R,with added LSD. Hi spec 4 pots,KW suspension,hondata ECU and every bush and suspension component replaced, with genuine Honda at horrendous cost! So was the 20 grand he spent on it worth it???...After driving it last night..FK YEAH. My god that thing is so fast its genuinely frightening..makes my 270hp R26 look like a Kia! He just drove half way across the country last weekend to have it tuned by one of the best in the country. It made 360hp and 305 lb/ft at a massively safe 9psi boost! It spins its wheels in 4th gear! But by choosing all the correct suspension components,and beautifully made adjustable open gate gear shifter,that sits just like a touring car..inches from the steering wheel,its wonderfully easy and comfortable to drive. The legendary honda shift quality means you can throw it up and down the gears in seconds..although you dont need to,as the boost by gear gives you so much low down power, that holds all the way through the rev range..if you are brave! Its just amazing that everything is bespoke,but it honestly drives like factory..just at a ridiculous pace. When the turbo kicks in,it is like a storm is brewing under the engine..you can really feel the immense power gathering with 1100 kg to push down the road. It defiantly hits 60 close to the 4second mark..its nuts. You would need very deep pockets to buy a production car to rival its in gear performance..money well spent! Will put up a pic of the engine when i see him next.
