Unreleased: Evans Tuning Part 2: The Evans/Bader 2001 Honda s2000


Only three months after the initial post do I bring on part two. I guess it’s not that bad with my track record lately. The s2000 here was built by Evan’s Tuning for Bader Dashti of B-Tune Performance in Kuwait. It was another shoot scheduled for a Honda Tuning (RIP) feature. The car has made consistent 8 second passes and at the time of the photoshoot it was making over 1000 whp. These kinds of numbers were achieved with a Borg Warner 72mm s400sx with an 87mm Turbine wheel, a 90mm accufab throttle body, a full race turbo manifold all […]

Unreleased: Evans Tuning Part 1: 1998 Honda Civic Hatch


Of everything I shot for Honda Tuning that got cancelled after its demise, this shoot, almost two years old now, is the one I wished had made it to print the most. Jeff and the team at Evans Tuning have been around for a long time. They are one of the few shops that I ever leave my ITR in the hands of and as a customer I’ve known Jeff for a number of years now. Of anyone, they were the most deserving shop I know to get a feature. Everything that comes out of there, from just a tune to a […]

Unreleased: Andrew’s 2001 Acura Integra Type R


Before the PA Meet, I met up with Andrew and his 2001 ITR. This too was scheduled to be a Honda Tuning feature, but never found its way in before the magazine shut down for good. At a casual glance it looks like a simply mint, stock ITR, but hidden within is an 85.5mm x 89mm B18C5 with 15.5:1 compression pistons. All said and done, it puts down 281 to the wheels with 115 octane. Now take a look at this previously unreleased set:  

Honda’s Discontd Mistake


Today I bring you a look at Stan’s 2005 Honda S2000. I’ve known Stan for a few years now. Our first meeting, I believe, was at the Sandy Hook meet in NJ back in 2010. This was before I picked up my own S2000 so there was no way for either of us to know that we’d eventually meet again and become good friends. With Wekfest NJ quickly approaching, Stan hit me up to get some pictures of his new look for his application. I happily obliged as I knew the care and quality Stan puts into his s2000 every […]

Unreleased: Hondaworks’ Honda Challenge Civic Hatch


Last week I shared with you the unreleased photos from OktoberFast at VIR from 2011. Well during that same event I happened to do this photoshoot of the Hondaworks Honda Challenge Civic, driven and owned by Kevin Helms. It was originally destined to be in print, but there was a bit of delay on some stuff and then the livery of the car was changed, essentially making these photos immediately outdated. This is also why you’ll see a lot of similar angles and stuff as I was trying to provide different options of what could be used. I don’t remember the exact […]

Karl’s VW CC sitting on 20’s.


These pictures should have gone up earlier in the week, but I simply kept forgetting to post them. Sorry about that Karl, lol. Anyways, Karl and I go way back as, as in like 1991 way back, so I’m always down to chill and shoot a car of his. He tends to go through cars pretty fast, but they’re always clean rides including everything from an 11 second B14 sentra to a lifted Xterra (except for that oldsmobile with a system haha). Anyways these days Karl’s rolling around in this CC which is sitting on 20in Audi wheels with a […]

ITR Expo 12 Part 3


Here we are with part 3 of ITR Expo 12. Today will take us from mid morning up and through the lunch hour with the parade laps. I should also probably mention for those that haven’t seen, but ITR Expo 13 has been announced. The tentative dates are Sept 9-10 at Mid-Ohio again. As always it will be open to all makes and models. Be sure to check on www.itrexpo.com for more info as it becomes available. With the talks of Expo 13, I’d just like to thank the Expo committee for putting this event on. Many people that don’t frequent […]
