It’s time to kick off 2016 with a new build! The Honda NSX is a bucket-list car for many people, whether you’re a Honda fanboy, a lover of 90’s JDM, or maybe you have a case of the feels from the original Need for Speed game. This one takes quite the transformation, starting off as a stock automatic it quickly gets torn down and receives a track-ready overhaul. Huge brakes, wide-body, carbon panels, flat floor, air jacks, intricate roll cage with floor bars, bespoke centre exit exhaust, and plenty more. Towards the end of the thread we learn that a HPD LeMans-style engine looks to be in the car’s future, with a couple of turbos to really get things moving, I can’t wait to see how that turns out!

But hey, cars are built to be driven and bikes are built to be ridden, so we should rejoice when a build reaches it’s final destination. I posted this mid-engine converted MK2 Golf way back in June 2009, and it’s been one of the most popular cars I’ve ever put on the site, I always see links in my stats to this build popping up on forums regularly. Well, just this week a video was posted of the wide-body creating roaring into life, so it’s time to reacquaint yourself with this incredible home-built ride and see how much work has been carried out over the past few years.

It seems the there are many members of the Honda fraternity who still undeniably love the marquee, yet are quite bored of the whole FWD thing. On this website alone there are 3 other builds documenting Hondas being DIY’d away from their standard drivetrain layout. There’s a front-engine RWD F20C CRX, a mid-engine rear wheel drive DC2 Integra, and an AWD Twin Engine Del Sol. This latest build uses a mixture of those combinations, giving us a mid-engine rear wheel drive CRX. Honda, are you listening?

VW Polo RWD Rear Engine Drift Car
AWD Twin Engine Honda CRX
As for this feature, I’d like to thank Coolin-AE86from JDM Style Tuning for posting the link in the Integra Picture Thread. Cover image by Patrick Smith/pks prod. Continue reading “Mid-Engine RWD Honda Integra”
Another Golf, but this one’s a bit more ‘function over form’ than previous VW features.
Mid-engine, rear wheel drive; I’ll let the pics do the rest of the talking…
