The debates between FWD aficionados versus the world will never die. Sure some people jump camps but most Honda guys are front-drive for life. The JAG_2091_optAWD and RWD guys will mock the FWD but the FWD guys know with a proper suspension and an LSD, the nuances of FWD start to disappear. Phrases like torque-steer and under-steer became as rare as a internet dating profile pic that matched reality. When it comes to EK Civics, they are pretty dangerous on the track with only a cage and coilovers but the one we unearthed at Overdosed Performance was that and much more.

Owner Christos Tsoraidis of Laval, QC knows a thing or two about making these EKs a menace on the track and this example is only one of many by Overdosed Performance. Starting with a K20A2 engine swap, Tsoraidis knew there was easy power to be made with K-series. Using HASport mounts, the freshly rebuilt K was sleeved into the engine bay. The fuel system was amped up with a BDL rail, AEM fuel pressure regulator and some bigger injectors. The intake air is brought in by a Fujita5 short-ram that meets up with an RBC intake manifold. The exhaust gases are excused quicktime by a DC Sports 4-2-1 header and a BuddyClub Pro-Spec exhaust. The high-revving motor is now chilled by a Fluidyne radiator capped with a Spoon Sports cap. The Hondata K-Pro ensures all of the new parts play nice with each other and wreck shop.

To stay planted during track events and lose some weight to free-up torque, Tsoraidis added a bunch of gear. A Seibon carbon fiber hood caps off theJAG_9751_opt K-series along with a wide-mouth front grille to work with the Backyard Special front bumper.


A ViS carbon hatch was added along with a CTR roof spoiler and Spoon aero mirrors. The lighting also was brought into the new millennium with Helios 5000K headlights and a European Civic Type-R rear fog light.

Inside the EK erases all doubts that this car is useful on the street. Sure it has wipers and turn signals and even a plate, however a completely gutted and caged interior means that it is one noisy and stiff experience. They lifted some parts from the JDM Civic Type-R including: gauge cluster, SiR cup holder and shift boot. Then they jacked some JDM DC2 Recaro from the Honda Integra Type-R black with red stitching. Some accessories complete the look with a Password JDM Ti knob, Personal Neo Grinta wheel and Stewart Warner gauges stuffed in an Auto Meter triple pod.

The footwork and chassis obviously received a load of attention. The Auto Power roll bar fortifies the frame and EM Racing supplied a load of the braces including: C-pillar bar, triangular pillar bar, triangular trunk brace, rear strut brace and trunk floor bar. There is also a Password: JDM 3-point strut brace. On the suspension side a set of D2 coilovers were added for their high degree of adjustability using a 12Kg/10Kg combo. Megan Racing stepped in to supply: front and rear upper camber kits along with bushings and lower rear tie bar. Then Skunk2 was contacted to ship out some lower control arms which are stronger and lighter than the originals.

The lightweight Civic is grounded by a set of rubber that has an unyielding grip on the track. Running Rotas on the street, Tsoraidis opted for SSR RP-F Pros in Anodized Green measuring 15x7-inches wrapped in Toyo R888 205/50R15 R-Comps. The brakes are fairly conservative since this car now weighs nothing. Only Brembo OE-style rotors were added with Hawk HP Plus pads and SS lines.

This street-legal (well sort of) Civic can be found on streets of Laval, QC usually heading to a racetrack. Whether it is Ste Eustache, Tremblant or ICAR at Mirabel, this 3-door tears a new one when stacked up against larger displacement bullies. A quick ride for sure, we finally caught it and made it famous.
