When developing components for “real world” sport compact applications, our 1993 Civic hatch back does the job. This car is very similar to many of our customer's cars. With basic ZEX™ components, we have had the car as fast as a 13.31 e.t. at 100 mph with it's D16Z6 engine. While the car is not much show, it's all go! Future plans for the car are a B18C GSR engine swap. This will allow us the opportunity to continue our camshaft development and nitrous testing for this very popular engine. No doubt, the car will be solidly in the 12's with this new combination.

Power: The engine, with a 75 shot of nitrous, made 178 hp to the wheels at 6800 rpm and 200 ft. lb. tq. to the wheels at 3000 rpm.

Performance: Car weighs 2465 lbs. w/driver best et: 13.54 at 98 mph

*Performance note: With the addition of our 59300 camshaft and 912-16 valve springs, e.t. dropped to a 13.31 at 100 mph!

Our 1993 Civic hybrid hatchback continues to show what can be accomplished with easily installed ZEX™ performance components.

To conduct camshaft development for the DOHC B-series V-TEC Honda engines, we swapped in an Integra GSR engine. This replaced our SOHC V-TEC engine, and provided a whole new level of performance for our shop car.

After development had been completed, our ZEX™ 57200 camshafts made an additional 19hp over the stock GSR cams! This brought our all-motor power to 170hp at the wheels, up from the stock 151hp. With the 75 hp jets installed in the ZEX™ 82011 nitrous system , the car made a whopping 237 hp at the wheels. This provided enough horsepower to push the car to a 12.85 e.t. at 107mph on it's first time to the race track! This is the kind of performance that will have your competition running scared!

Power: The engine, with a 75 shot of nitrous, made 237 hp to the wheels at 8400 rpm and 225 ft. lb. tq. to the wheels at 4000 rpm.

Performance: Car weighs 2450 lbs. w/driver, Best et: 12.85 at 107 mph
