    A while ago I wrote up one of many Korbach Frame Lock reviews. You can check out mine in the sticky on this forum.

    The company needs testers for 92-95 Civics, Del Sols, and Integras.

    I know my car. I know how it handles before and after this product. Here's a chance for the skeptical owners of other generation Civics to see for themselves how the product works. I get no money or incentive for posting this. I just believe in the product and am passing on the word.

    Here is part of an email I got from the company.

    ##########

    You will definately have the best luck out of anyone here.
    Just send the guy an email and tell him you're an admin here on HS and that you know me.
    It'll probably be the same $70 it cost me. The free ones are for people local to the shop.
    I can send them an email too if you want.

    What about the EF? I live in San Francisco, and I would be curious to try something like this out for the EF/ED chasis. Pass the word on for me Prowler.

    Yeah, Im within driving distance to san francisco (and therefore their shop) and would be willing to beta their product. If they need any EF's I'd appreciate if you would let me know.

    question is, do you guys think the EF's need frame locks? the bumpers are mounted differently then the ek's.

    I put up the message yesterday afternoon. I'm not in charge on anything. You need to email the company. And I believe all 94+ Integras are eligible.
