    So I stopped by at a local speed shop a couple days ago, and applied for a job there... The guy Steve said they aren't hiring at the moment (like everyone else) but that he'd take an app anyways.

    So, later I'm screwing around and decide to check out their website, and lo and behold, I find out Steve is the owner of an EG that I drooled over once while flipping through an import mag.
    Check this shit.

    Steve Soto's Honda Civic Hatch - Steppin' Up - Honda Tuning Magazine

    This has got to be one of the sickest EG hatches I've laid eyes on to date.

    For the most part it does but there was one teeny tiny piece that wasnt there but I'll bet you'll never know, cuz it's not visible in those pics.

    I'm pretty sure they did that for better clearance...

    Not when it's slamming 600+whp into the street... This car is fucking nuts, next time I see Steve I'm gonna see if he'll let me ride along so I can feel how fast this car is. I've definitely never rode in a car pushing this much power.

    Well damn... too bad. lol

    I'm almost positive it's setup that way for clearance... but it doesn't hurt it imo

    The hood does look like ass. Clearance or not. Other than that it is nicer than anything I will build. But then again, I dont own a speed shop.

    this car has around 500 hp and because of such high numbers it needs some jdm hood spacers. It may look ugly as fuck but works incredably well.

    JDM hood spacers? Really, can we just call them washers? And chances are his jdm hood spacers where made in China out of an old Ford.

    /\ Indeed.
    I see it more and more

    Most guys that roll around with those hood spacers (aka washers glued together)
    dont have a K-swap turbo.....most likely intake and fart can
