No, he popped with the SC. All his stuff was on sale according to one of the last post of the thread, he's heading for a V8 swap now. "A"for effort, but come to think about it the FC20 is only good N/A. Magna was dropping bombs over there, V-tech fans guys got all pissed because he said that the same power wouldve been achieve with a simple turbo kit on a stock 1.6/1.8. Then hell broke lose with the "2sk > Miata" bs along with the small ***** syndrome of miata haters . Oh well seriously what is it with honda drivers, they really think they own the world and that V-tech is the best thing since sex.
