My work mate has just finished building his Honda Civic race car, he’s doing tarmac rallies with it, literally just got the engine fired up and mapped etc. Went out racing last weekend to break it in......

He now has a window in the side of his block

Nope. Standard engine and his friend built the car with him who owns a garage, did the cage etc.

He’s going for forged internals over sized pistons, proper gated sump etc. So he’s blowing another load of money on it.

He’s a bit stuck with what to do because his rules restrict him. If he goes for a bigger motor, 2.4 litre he gets put into a class which is full of turbo Imprezas so to be competitive he will have to spend a huge chunk of  money to just keep up with them seeing as they are 4wd etc. And he’s only fwd and no turbos

I think he’s over revved it, and it has had oil starvation. I’d like to see what his crank looks like

Just found this out on the internet from Coombe last year so I thought I would share  :)

I think the boy Adam has photographed every inch of your car over the last few years

Heard from him today that it’s all his own fault, too harsh on the down shifts so I reckon he has down shifted waaaay too early and pinged the rpm of the engine over the Rev limit, spun a bearing and carried in driving until it melted
