Spoon is building this EG Civic in a no expense spared fashion, and the engine is so pretty. Why the nutso headers? Well on a typical B-series Honda engine the header goes under the oilpan and out the back, but to get this engine to sit lower in the bay the header comes up at the front, around the side, and down the back of the engine
with the carbon shell work visible here at the shock towers, which have also been raised to allow more upper control arm travel
and here where you can see the entire floor pan and firewall is carbon.
not a great deal of info in this hyperbolically titled video, but they do promise a full review once it is completed and travels to the US. I’d be very interested to know more about the carbon shell, is it just an overlay for strength, or a recreation.
I suspect they are spending more on nuts/bolts than I will be on my own entire EG project.
