While every blog seems to be featuring the Evo from StunnrStatus – I really feel their RSX deserves a lot of credit too. It’s well put together and absolutely gorgeous. I <3 SBC RPF’s.

V2LAB x S3 Magazine

April 24, 2010  |  by ravi  |  News  |  3 comments

I finally had a chance to make it down the local Book Store today (Borders) today, to see if they had the new S3 Magazine in. Turns out they did so I picked up a copy. This month features Troy Huynh’s (Sunworks/V2lab) Acura RSX that I shot a few months back with him. I did the exterior pictures – he did the interior pictures. The feature came out great and the photos are on the shelves so pick up a copy today! (or buy one online www.s3mag.com)

This RSX has been floating through the forums – not so much the blogs – but this new titanium/multi-color(?) coating appears to be the new hype – I’m sure we’ll see more of it in the future. Anyways props to this guy for building a solid, well rounded RSX.


Tech – K20 Swapped Civic (by T.Ali)

November 4, 2009  |  by four  |  Car & Misc.  |  2 comments

It has been a long road coming. Myself, Tommy Ali aka Amimaxima and my good friend (the owner of the eg) Jim Mergl aka Jdm Son! have gone through a lot with this car. It’s a 92 vx eg hatch. Jim found it for sale on Autotrader in Miami with a high compression b20/vtec with a built head. The owner said it had a bent valve. We took a long drive to Miami to purchase the car.

When we got back home the first thing we did was rip off the head. To our surprise the motor had four broken valves. The head was completely trashed and one piston was destroyed, Jim got another vtec head, new valve train, new pistons, new rings and new bearings. We went to assemble the new parts into the b20 block and Jim noticed a crack on one of the sleeves! WTF could it get any worse. We had to get a new head and a new block. We got a hold of another b20 block and assembled the block. At this point we had a high compression b20 block and a built b16 head. For some random reason Jim decided to trade the high compression b20 block for a low compression ls block he now wanted to do a turbo setup. A few days later he decided he didn’t want to do a turbo setup. This kid changes his mind more than a girl changes clothes.

Jim sold the LS low compression block and he also sold the built b16 head. He came across what appeared to be a good deal on a jdm ctr b16b. Jim put that in the EG and it smoked like a mofo! Come to find out that”good deal” had bad piston rings. Took the ctr motor out and sold it as needing new rings. At this point Jim just needed to get the car running so he purchased a bone stock b16a2. We swapped that into the EG and it was slow as shit, sohc slow! We rocked that for awhile, got beat by a few people….. it sucked. I had a set of jdm itr red recaros in my bedroom that I would sit in and play halo 3 with Ravi and no scope him in the face. Since day one when I got the seats Jim begged me to buy the seats and I always said no. Finally I gave in and sold them to him. Now the car was outfitted with a stock b16a2, red recaros and white TE37′s, it was looking minty. Jim picked up a Vortech supercharger, we installed that on the b16a2 and we both looked at each other and said “WOW THIS SUCKS LOL”. We were both used to turbo setups and being able to up boost on the fly. Finally Jim was sick of being slow. He started off by selling the supercharger, then the Recaros, the white TE37′s and finally the b16a2. It was time for a change.

With all the acquired money for pretty much selling everything off of the car Jim came to me and said it’s K time. I immediately knew what he was talking about. I got on the phone with Hybrid-Racing, K-tuned and Karcepts. I ordered all the swap parts that we were going to need. Next I ordered motor. In the time we were waiting for the motor and the parts to come in we started taking the car apart. Both of us decided to gut the car, do a brake tuck and paint the bay. Everything came out of the inside of the car. The only thing that’s left inside the car is a gutted dash and two seats. I convinced Jim to let me paint the bay gold and the two of us knocked out the brake tuck. It was like Christmas when parts started arriving. The parts list included : Hybrid Racing billet motor mounts, Hybrid Race Header, Hybrid Swap harness base model axels, Hondata intake manifold gasket, Hybrid throttle body adapter, ep3 pulley setup, Rbc intake manifold k-tuned fuel rail, k-tuned heater block offs, k-tuned coolant temp sensor adapter, Aeromotive fuel pressure regulator,  Karcepts shifter plate, Karcepts radiator bracket, aem cold air intake, 3 inch exhaust and hondata kpro. We completed everything that we could with the parts that we had, we were at a stand still waiting for the motor to come in. FINALLY over night parts from japan, THE MOTOR WAS HERE! Time to get vtec’n. We worked on getting the motor in and all the bug worked out. Finally it was alive. We got it out on the road did a little part throttle tuning and finally we got around to wot runs and we both looked at each in awe. We were both amazed, holy shit we both said. Who would have thought low 200 hp could be so fast.

We spent the next few days getting the tune right. We took it out the Saturday night meet and everyone couldn’t stop talking about it, everyone loved it. Jim raced a few people that night. First to get beat was a 330hp turbo Gsr EK hatch, next was a 96 Cobra on the bottle he got it dirty and finally an Evo 8. Since running the car for the first time everyone respects the car and a lot of the big dogs want to run. It’s funny to walk by a group of people and hear them talking, saying “damn that red k swapped EG hatch is freakin’ fast as hell.” It’s a good feeling for both of us to hear what people think about the car and to know that it can hold its own on the streets. It was a long journey building this car with my friend Jim but it was well worth it.


Kami-Speed – K-Series Meet

September 27, 2009  |  by ravi  |  Automotive Events  |  No Comments


I got a call from Troy to go check out the Kami-Speed K-series car meet. Kami-Speed throws a bunch of small individual car – car meets. It rained a bit on and off – and parking was a bit nuts – but it was a good time – I’m pretty sure i took like 30 pictures of Joanna (one of the lovely models for Kami-Speed for the day). I tried to get the majority of cars – it rained on and off while I was trying to take the shots so I may have missed a few cars (next meet I’ll get em!). Everyone seemed to have a wire-tucked bay – absolutely nuts! Anyways it was a good time. Enjoy the pics!

*updated – new pictures added by troy


Relax – Car Show x Pool Party

September 22, 2009  |  by ravi  |  Automotive Events  |  No Comments

Relax ; very hyped pool party with a car show. Very Dope set up for a great event, but the crowd just wasn’t there this time. I think next time they do it – They’ll know to lower the price ($25 dollar admission!?!). All in all DJ RINCON / DJ ET / DJ CESAER (102 JAMZ) played great music through out the day. The Florida sun was definitely out and we got to enjoy the warm atmosphere with some beautiful ladies.

Props to ColdFront Entertainment, Liquid Force, 102 Jamz, Speedzone, XL 106.7, Carribean Sunshine Bakery, Sea Goddess, and everyone else that was out there.

Featured – Team Sunworks Acura Rsx-S

June 17, 2009  |  by ravi  |  Features  |  7 comments

Anyone can build a Honda – parts are readily available at your neighborhood Wal-Mart it seems, but building a Show-Winning, Track ready Honda takes a special breed of people. Team Sunworks is of that Breed. They’ve built several successful Show & Track ready cars. Meet Troy’s Acura Rsx Type S. Hands down one of the cleanest RSX’s on the street filled with rare goodies from it’s S2000 gauge cluster set up to the Work VS-XX wheels. Troy’s Rsx started its life out as a 2004 (early model RSX) and was converted over to the 05-06 body style as of earlier this year.

From the outside of the car you will immediately notice the Mugen lips on the front and rear – along side the A-spec side skirts all complimented by a Mugen Style Seibon Hood and Type R spoiler. Move down to the wheels and you’ll find 17×9 Work Wheels tucked neatly under the fenders by Buddy Club N+ coilovers. Poking through the mesh wheels is a big brake upgrade from Rotora (you can’t miss the tealish color).

The interior of the car wasn’t left alone for long either, the two stock Recaro RSX seats were replaced by two Red Bride Brix 2 seats and the rear seats were wrapped in Bride material – special ordered straight from Bride. Even the gauge cluster was replaced with a fully functional S2000 digital cluster. If you’re a real Honda enthusiast you will immediately notice all the interior pieces have been replaced with their jdm “type-r” counterparts as well unless you were busy watching a movie on the pioneer Avic-3 in-dash.

The k20a2 has been modified with the essentials, Fujitsubo Exhaust, Injen Intake, RBC Intake Manifold coupled with the Hondata gasket, a Buddy Club Race header, Braille Lightweight Battery and a hoard of other jdm goods.

Inside and out this Car has been proven to shut down the Acura Class at car shows – Make sure you look out for it in the future along side the rest of the TEAM SUNWORKS cars.
