Featured Elite: Morgan Jade's Race-Prepped CTR
Full article here:
One thing about Skunk2 is that we strive to be unique. The same goes for
our Street Team Elite. Morgan Jade is a unique member of Skunk2's Street
Team Elite simply because she's its only female member. She's also the only
member with a real-deal, RHD Civic Type R. Morgan's performance parts
cocktail makes for a vehicle that is well suited for track purposes, yet
still drivable for lunch meetings and coffee runs. Morgan stopped by Skunk2
headquarters for a visit a while back; we took advantage of the situation
by capturing some video of her and the CTR. Check it out below and hear
what the lady of Skunk2's Street Team Elite has to say.

JRSC ITR Build Up - Chapter 1
This clip shows the progression of my JRSC supercharged B18c-R DC2 Honda
from it's humble beginnings as a turquoise Vti-R to how it look today.
This movie has a bit of a sad ending. Bye bye B18c-R.
Thats ok though, chapter 2 shows the re-power with a JE/Eagle forged B18c
and a bit more Boost + methanol :)

Installing The Pistons
Installing the pistons in my 5.4l for my F150. I used a Sealed Power ring
and piston set from Napa. I wanted to go with forged, but my engine guy
told me that in a street/strip block, forged pistons will actually
deteriorate the block faster and
are much noisier.
