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:  

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a bit of delay on some stuff and then the livery of the car was changed, essentially making these photos immediately outdated.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 […]

Unreleased: OktoberFast at VIR from 2011


Hey everyone. We’ve got a few photos today that I’ve never released previously. The event was the NASA OktoberFast at VIR back in October 2011. There are only a few photos as I was driving for the weekend, and sadly this is the last time my ITR has been on track. In true Octoberfest fashion, VIR had a beer festival that Saturday night. We paid whatever amount and were given a glass that we could have filled up to nine times with a variety of different beers on hand. Many drinks were had by everyone. And on to the few […]
