Jose's Honda Civic EK Hatch - BRtv Episode 5
With the popularity of the motorsport of drifting rising by the minute,
there's been a great shift from the Import or Tuner crowd from FWD cars
(front wheel drive) to RWD (rear wheel drive). More and more manufacturers
are adding affordable RWD models to their line ups, and it doesn't look
like that's going to change any time soon (thank the Car Gods). There was
however a time when the Tuner world was mostly flooded with FWD cars with
the Honda brand in the forefront. In the late 90s' when Honda dropped the
EK Civic body, particular the SI model, eclipsing it's predecessor, the
brand seem to do no wrong. Aside from the legendary SI model Civic, the
single most desirable EK one could own was (arguably) the hatch. In it's
stock formation, the car is as cookie cutter, gas saving commuter as they
come. Actually that's something easily said about just about any Civic.
But with just a little tweaking, some nice shoes, maybe a lip, a wing and
dare I say a "B" series engine swap, and these little light ways could
easily be turned in a super fun rides. I would venture to say that these
are the new classics, and if you happen to own a EK hatch or SI, take care
of it, restore it, and watch it increase in value. These will be the cars
we all try to outbid each other at future Barrette-Jackson or Mecan auto
auctions. That said, I like to take a moment to introduce our next episode
of Braggenrites.com TV (BRtv). In it you guys get to meet Jose Hernandez
Diaz and his sick Honda Civic EK Hatch.
This guys is as passionate and detailed oriented as any with his ride as
any car guy. He took his mild mannered hatch and turn into a complete eye
catcher, by adding just the right amount of cool, to just the right parts.
The car features a totally rebuilt, souped up and turbocharged motor, redone interior with a set of
racing seats and a custom roll cage, and a sick stance (to say the least).
The car is tastefully done with a simplistic aggressiveness that seems to
contradict itself and compliment itself all at the same time. The engine
bay (it's most attention grabbing feature) is shaved of all "unnecessary"
parts and painted white, of all shades; a looks that makes the Hatch stand
out even more. We loved this car once we first saw it, and knew we wanted
to shoot it and share it with the world. It's owner Jose, is a kool a kat
as any, and hung with us for a couple of hours so that we could do that.
We opened his bag a tricks to let you all know everything about his car
(all except the wheel brand) and what all he did to take it to the level
seen here. We wanna send a huge shout out to him and hope you guys enjoy
the update. For more on this episode (pics and so on) see the full gallery

2000 Honda Civic Si
Just a video showcasing my 2000 Honda Civic Si that I have for sale.
Update: Car is no longer for sale, I have changed the look quite a bit and
will be posting another video of it as it sits now in the near future.
Subscribe to my channel to see it when it gets posted.
My SI was stolen November 3rd 2010 between 12am and 6am. It was recovered
and it was stripped bare. I will find the thieves who stole my car and I
will make them pay...just like I did to the last pair of lowlives that
stole my other EK.
Honda Civic Coupe... A Closer Look (HD)
We take a close look at the Honda Civic Coupe EM1. With it's very
responsive fantastic VTEC engine this car is one of the very few naturally
aspirated cars developing 100bhp per litre! We also look at some of the
modifications that can be done to this car out of the thousands of parts
that are already availble off the shelf.

Describes the operation of the HONDA V-Tec variable valve timing system.
Like never seen before, this animation goes into details on the mechanical
principle of the V-Tec system. The Honda V-Tec system is a dual setting
variable valve timing system. It is meant to give high efficiency and low
power at lower RPM and high power and low efficiency at higher RPMs. There
have been a few incarnations of V-Tec, which came out in the late 80's, but
their principle is the same. See it all here with high quality visual
