Project Honda City Turbo II – Introduction

A couple of friends of mine (the same guys I went to Winton with) have embarked on a joint project car. The car in question is an obscure little Honda, and it’s not a Civic. Nope, it’s even better, it’s a City Turbo II. If you’re unfamiliar with these awesome little cars, you can read up about them on the Wiki page here. All you really need to know is that it’s small, it’s turbo, and you can fit a Motocompo in the boot. The other night I popped around for a visit while Tony and Ryan were wrenching away and took some photos of the goings on. As usual, click for larger versions.

I’ve been toying with the idea of posting the progress of this build on in installments, much the same way I document my own project. What are your thoughts on this? Are you interested in another site-hosted build?

    Cool, 8 separate intake ports, only 4 of them with a clearance for injectors. I love the wacky shit that Honda does with engines…

    Definitely document it on-site, rather than in a forum. You keep the signal:noise ratio really good on here, and the photography is consistently top-notch. Definitely interested to know more about the valve cover coating: is that OEM?
