You’d be hard-pressed to find a Honda fan who doesn’t appreciate the B16B-powered EK Type R, and Bryce is no exception to this. He had always admired the model and picked one up to toy around with at a few of the local track days and drag nights. From there, though, he developed a taste for more power. The logical next step for Bryce — as it has been for many before him — would have been a B18CR from the Integra family. However, as time went on, thoughts of something greater began to be generated — why not a K-series swap? At the time, they weren’t as common and they offer up more power in factory form than most worked B18s do.
Bryce, seeing the light, chose a K20A and chucked a back catalogue of parts at it that would make a Civic owner cry with happiness: RRC intake, Spoon Sports throttle body, Blox velocity stack, ATI crank pulley, Private Label Mfg Hytech-style K-swap header, Spoon Sports DC5 radiator, and Hasport dual-height conversion mounts.
Not letting the package down in the drivetrain department either, the EK features 98-spec hubs and shafts, with a K-Tuned shift kit installed on the DC5 box. Suspension-wise, Bryce stumbled across a set of Spoon Sports N1 coilovers and installed them alongside Skunk2 front and rear camber arms, and rear lower-control arms, with Spoon Sports front rotors, pads, and brake lines installed under the arches, too — though you’d find it hard to see any of it, as it’s all tucked away behind the lush 16-inch Volk Racing TE37s shod in Toyo R888Rs.
