Spoon EK9 Tsukuba Hot Lap by Tsuchiya (dori-dori)
This is a lap of the original spoon EK9 (pre-facelift). With B16 1800kit, SW388 15" rims, spoon 10000rpm cluster etc. 1.8 with 260PS is stunning (The latest Mugen Civic Type RR experimental spec is with 2.2 and the same 260PS, and 1998 VS 2008! you have the sum)
The lap time (1998) is actually faster than the same car with 17" and K20 swap driven by the same driver by 0.4s (2007, 9 years later). You can notice the sound of B16 is much more hardcore. B16 is the original raw beast!
