So, here we have yet another Modified car thread by me....

Well I picked the new car up yesterday - a 1992 Honda Civic VTi-SiR which I plan to prep for the Classic Touring Car Championship in the Pre93's, up to 1600cc Class smile

Its the imported Civic VTi which means it makes 168bhp std rather than the 158 from a UK car, has the LSD gearbox, no suroof, its also bee played with a little already and has, a full exhaust inc 4 branch manifold, induction kit, remapped ECU, uprated fuel rail, FPR, Integra Inlet manifold, throttle body and cams, short shift, 282mm brakes with twin pot calipers and lowering springs.





Plans for the car are to get it eligible for the Championship mentioned above, that means I need the following and will probably buy them in this order:

Competition Clutch
Rollcage (Inc stripping the car)
Seat
Harness
Ignition cut off
Fire Extinguisher
Toyo 888 Tyres
Coilovers
Better front Brake pads

As an addition to things for the car I also need:

An ARDS test to get a full race license
A tow ball on the back of the BMW

I already have a pukka race suit, and helmet smile

That little lot should get me up and racing, with anything else that follows being an evolution of the car smile

The car itself wasn’t in as good condition as I initially thought, but, I did get it pretty cheap, and I would be worried about racing a minter on a track through fear of it getting damaged - so some tatty patches make it more livable with if anything should happen. The main thing is its mechanically good, and the chassis is good smile

Watch this space, as I start modding this car up and getting it ready - hopefully it will remain road legal all the way through, as regs for the championship say lights must work etc which is the main thing that would mean it couldn’t be used on the road...

Been busy with this since I picked it up, and over the weekend it went through a weigh loss program smile

All the back has now been stripped (B pillar back) - which has made it considerably louder inside!

Ive ordered a 6 point FIA harness, Coilovers, OMP Cage and I have my eye on a seat smile

Im also waiting on a price back from the states on a clutch kit, which consists of a 6 prong paddle plate, uprated cover, release bearing, pivot bearing, and ali flywheel!

Ill try and get some interior pics tonight smile

Im just trying to stay on a budget to get the car saorted at the moment - the seats dont need to be FIA, so even out of date seats are considered. Im not very wide, so I dont need a big seat, but it will need 5 harness holes, and to be side mounted.

Coilovers Im ordering are rebranded Leda from the US
