Moto IQ: Project EJ Honda Civic: Skunk2 Pro-C Coilovers
If you are just joining us in project EJ Civic, what has transpired over the last couple of months is as follows:  12 years of less than careful flogging of the car, over 260,000 miles driven, and a day at Buttonwillow Raceway which left us limping home from the racetrack with a blown head gasket. This would require the removal of the engine for repairs, and as famous last words would have it, "while we're at it, we might as well….." ensued.

In the last segment of the series, Mike Kojima filled us in on our head that had been dropped off with Tom Fujita at Portflow Design for some head work. While we waited for that to be completed and for our new pistons to show up, we turned our focus to the suspension modifications of the car. As you saw in the initial driving impression, this car desperately needed a suspension makeover if it wanted to keep up with our fellow MotoIQ project cars. It doesn't matter how much horsepower you have if you can't keep it on the pavement!
