Will embraced Borg Warner Turbos with the Acura RSX and he is absolutely including that in his Honda Civic build. Earlier this year I happened to be at PZ Tuning’s shop/store when the courier arrived with a delivery. It was a Borg Warner EFR 9174, the first delivered to a customer. This unit was a hybrid of the EFR 8374 and the EFR 9180 – designed to perfectly meet the power requirements of this build.
For rubber the PZ Tuning Civic will be running Hankook Z214s in a C91 compound and a 275 width. Mounted on Volks 18×10.5 front and 18×9.5 rear. These tires are such a sticky compound that, when I touched them, it literally felt like my fingers were sticking to them. This huge setup will keep the car hooked to the pavement. As you can tell, Will is aiming for the Unlimited FWD class with a car build that has the potential to grab the top podium spot. Every time. Awesome aero, incredible engine bay, a cage that is beautifully welded, and attention to detail everywhere. There’s another story in this car!
April 29th the Civic was out at Toronto Motorsports Park – here's a fly-by. The beast has awakened! Video Credit: Zoran Lazic.
If you have read my other articles then you will recognize that I write about Canadian content. I think that the drivers, the clubs, the cars, and the tracks in Canada (specifically Ontario) are awesome. Because I live here and know and race with these drivers. I have watched them build their cars. There is no question that this is my bias – not because of nationality but because these are the people and cars that I know. I think that you will agree with me on the following point. These are incredible builds that we would be proud to race against … and understand if we lost! The bottom line, car enthusiasts do not care about borders; they care about a meticulous build and a car that works. These four cars work! If you are lucky enough to be in attendance at Road Atlanta with Global Time Attack, I hope that you welcome these cars among your group of favourites and cheer them on! #teamcanada
