All Red Everything – Tylers ’99 EM1

Whether it be the bright Milano red paint or idle lope, its tough to miss Tyler’s 1999 Civic cruising the streets in Warrington.

 However, it’s not your typical Honda build.  With the scene plauged by Chinese made replica parts, Tyler’s Civic is put together with many high quality parts, some being hard to get bits.

The car features a pretty hefty and constantly growing mod list, so lets start off with the exterior.

An authentic Civic Type R front end color matched to the factory Milano Red was the first step in separating this Civic from the many you see on the road. One of the unique features of this front end are the city lights in the headlights, side marker fender lights and Top One Motors front splitter with added winglets.

The rear end is finished off with an OEM Si wing with a Password JDM gurney flap to add a slightly more aggressive look to the stock styled wing.

To keep the car planted to the road, Koenig Heliums wrapped in Advan AD08 tires sit tucked up in the fenders with the help of some Function/Form Type II coilovers.

An ASR subframe brace, 24mm sway bar, Skunk 2 rear LCA’s and Buddy Club control arms also assist in keeping the car tight through the corners.

Tyler’s interior is built for comfort and functionality.  The Momo steering wheel, secured by an NRG hub & quick release, lets you control the Civic as the AEM UEGO & carbon faced OEM gauges display the cars vitals in front of you.

With more Type R bits filling the interior, one of the most eye catching features are the authentic DC5R Recaro seats.  They are perfect for holding you in place as you row through the gears with the Burst Craft Custom Shift Knob on a nice curvy back road.

Now lets turn our attention to what gets this Civic up and running.  Like many modified Civics, the motor has been swapped.  However, in this case, the car was outfitted with a JDM F20B engine.

The Chase Bays harness, Hondata coil on plug setup, and shaved valve cover help give Tyler’s engine bay a tidy and refined appearance, while the aggressive cam lope and exhaust note through the Speedfactory pie-cut muffler show that this car means business.

Internally, the top end is outfitted with Skunk 2 Pro Series Stage 2 Cams, Skunk 2 Cam Gears, and Supertech supporting components inside of the head.

Most Honda enthusiasts will also notice the Password JDM Carbon Kevlar intake tube.  Commonly referred to as the “whale penis”, this intake provides more than enough air that the N/A engine will ever need.

Mishimoto cooling components also keep the car cool in any situation while the AEM fuel components keep the engine running in the perfect fuel ratio conditions.

Tyler has put a lot of work into the car making it his own and always strives to source unique and rare JDM parts for it.  It’s not your “typical Honda” by any means.

Taking home Top 100 in a Honda Day event this year and participating as a show VIP in other H-Day events up and down the East coast have made all of the hard work worth it for Tyler. Tyler just wrapped up a Wilwood front BBK and future plans include boost, wheels and any other JDM parts Tyler can get his hands on!  Stay tuned!
