Perfectionist EK9 Type R

Words & photos - Daniel Bevis

This is one of the most incredibly detailed builds that SuckSqueezeBangBlow has seen up close for some time. Ben Parker's EK9 Civic Type R has been on the scene for a few years now, but time hasn't eroded its impact, and he keeps finding new ways to improve it.
Under the bonnet is a forged B16B block with JE forged pistons, Maxim Works manifold, Buddy Club Spec 2 exhaust, Spoon cams and a full wire tuck among much else, nestled in the most absurdly detailed engine bay - it's genuinely astonishing to behold in the metal. Elsewhere on the Honda we find a facelift front end conversion, staggered BBS RS splits, Tein coilovers, leather Recaros, and plenty, plenty more. The perfect Civic...?
