Jon’s JDM Honda Civic EK9 Hatchback

Written By: Ben Duen
Nowadays, most people in the scene start off buying a car, choosing a body kit, selecting some rims, and purchasing some bolt-ons….then they pay a shop to put it all together and they self proclaim themselves as ‘tuners’. Not Jon–our boy is a Honda Certified Tech and like Jacky Chan, he does his own stunts my friends. The suspension was set up by him, the interior was broken down and built back up by him, and if that masterpiece of an engine capable of 12 second runs could talk, it would acknowledge him as ‘pops’ for creating it using his two bare hands and a kmart socket wrench. Keep an eye out for this EK hatch, I promise you it is one to watch in the near future.
