                                So awesome to see Stephan Papadakis doing so well! I remember watching him on Speed TV and other TV shows so many years ago! I remember watching his engine building tips and tricks and actually using them, they never steered me wrong! Dude is amazing!

                                        2:20 Correct me of I'm wrong. But; isn't a 2.3 liter H series engine an H23, Not an H22?

                                          Not a honda civic, it a go kart with a maybe a honda engine block. This is like calling a now a day nascar a factory car.

                                                It’s pretty cool to see a detailed look of the car I’m a Honda guy and it’s pretty amazing that they used oem parts from what I remember him saying aftermarket parts back then weren’t reliable a lot of time effort and money when into this !!!
