Rear-wheel drive cars have an advantage on the drag strip. However, that doesn’t mean that front-wheel drive cars can’t be modified to go as fast or faster than the rear-wheel drive counterparts. This Kaizenspeed H2b is a prime example of a really freaking fast front-wheel drive monster.

Originally the car shown here was to be a daily driver. The problem with that is often once you get bit by the modification, or speed, bug your original goals go out the window. Here’s just a list of some of the modifications done to the car;

-Benson Sleeved H22a4 block
-Wiseco pistons (off-the-shelf), 9:1
-Eagle Rods
-KAIZENSPEED Balance Shaft Eliminator Kit
-KAIZENSPEED H22 Timing Tensioner
-ARP Headstuds
-Skunk2 Pro1 cams and Supertech valvetrain
-Stock port head

-Golden Eagle Intake manifold and fuel rail
-Blox 76mm Throttle Body

-Stock transmission
-EVO H2b kit
-Competition Clutch H2b Twin disk (C-plate)
-EG front subframe and a manual steering EG rack

-PTE 6266 divided T4 inlet
-KAIZENSPEED H2b forward facing divided T4 exhaust manifold w/ support
-TiAl 60mm wastegate
-KAIZENSPEED ballast bar (holds the radiator and intercooler, completely replaces the lower radiator support)
-Hondata S300
-Injector Dynamics ID2000 injectors
-Stock distributor and stock ignition

-All fabrication done in-house at KS

Out of the box, prior to any serious tuning, this little Civic ran an 11.1 in the quarter-mile. That’s not bad for a starting baseline. According to dyno results, the car makes over 700 horsepower. There’s the Hellcat way to make power, and there’s the Honda way.
