Just before lockdown I was on ebay bored in work and bidded on and ended up winning this

It was an insurance write off because the cat was stolen..

Its the 190 bhp yamaha designed engine and revs almost 8.5k

Thought it was worth a punt..

Used the Audi to tow it the hour and a half home..

Put a new exhaust on so its now a decat with 2.5 inch straight though with just a small back box

At the same point the clutch was a bit shitty so put a new one on..

Also changed the lift bolts as they are common to snap in the head..

Overall its alright like.. There's no torque in these engines and you need to rev the hell out of it..

It also came with some terrible 16 inch "mega" alloys.. So changed them for some oem 17"

Fanks for looking

Yeah I would "tow it home" too. ;)

I do like the way they do things differently, the super high rev s2000 engines (and I believe al vtec engines). mazdas affair with rotary engines. The reliability and servicability of them.

They either look really good or really bad though. No inbetween.

Some of their 4x4s look terrible. Just a little bit better from pontiac aztek (the breaking bad car before you google)

Welllll as fortune would have it... A quiet evening has led me to buy another jap car..

I introduce you to my 190 quid civic.. it's a hybrid baby ...

I hate hybrid cars so I have no idea why I own it.. its mot'd and 30 quid a year tax..

I own 50% of it with my buddy...

It's has a twin spark 1.3 or something or other with an electric assit..

Dash is funky but it's absurdily slow

Anyways who likes it

It's a 1.3 engine right? Should be able to turbo or supercharge it and get some extra go from it... without it exploding... granted some cars will still be faster but if you just chuck an el cheapo compressor on it it will make a world of difference and it'll be a lot simpler to install providing there is space to mount it.

I would go for that thise roots type compressors are cheap as chips.

I Believe so... i knew nothing about these cars and was googleing whilst on route to learn about it..

id be surprised if it lasts the winter with me, i was going to scrap it as the scrap place by me pays me more than what i paid for it so make a quick few quid. However me and my buddy are going to use it as a tip run car/carry crap/carry parts....
