    WELL, my little hatchy with its stocker D15b7 rolled over the 200,000 mile mark this last weekend. i love the durability and reliability of good honda motors. i've even been hard on it at times and it still runs great. i still get 25-33 in city (depending on how i take off from the start) and 36-42 on the freeway!, which, dang is still really good especially that most new cars, including civics don't get that. so i am very happy with it. not really a power hungry person, but i like good get up and go. i'm planning to put a D15b JDM vtec w/ a jrsc next may, i'm getting everything ready for that. i really thought about the b-series, but all i want is 160-200 hp and decent gas milage.

    well, who else is a member, or previous member. and what car? thanks,

    ~Ryan

    Your car is redder than red. It's so red that it actually affects ambient temperature.

    Only made it to 155 in the teg before the wreck, hope to see 200 with it someday.

    My Accord just rolled 234 yesterday, still runs like a scalded dog, and its been an abused car for sure.

    HAHA! well, thanks for the warm welcome, but i've been a member here for years, so thanks [​IMG]
    oh..and for the hemriods thing....umm...yeah...let keep that one in the bag!!!


    it was repainted long before i had the car, it's a little darker red than a stock honda red. i quite like it! but the engine bay is the stocker red, the paint difference between the old and new is very hard to see, but if you know how to paint you can see certian areas that are a butt to get. either way, the engine bay hasn't been touched, and the vavle cover is powder coated to a type R red (i wanted color matched, but didn't have the right color)

    theres 250,000 on my chassis, but only like 150,000 or so on the engine. I did cross the 250,000 mile mark at 120mph and I had it as my background on my old phone.

    If your light on the throttle, you can get great gas millage on a b-series as well. I have got as high as 39mpg on country roads with my GSR hatch.
