Book Description: The Honda Civic--it's been called the '55 Chevy of the Nineties and recognized as the leader of the import sport compact car phenomena that is sweeping the country. If you dream of owning a tricked out Honda or already have a Honda Civic, CR-X, or del Sol and want to make it fly or just look like it can, Civic Duty is for you! Civic Duty covers every aspect of Honda Civic modification from the mechanical to the artistic with chapters on: -Suspension modifications for street, strip, or track-springs, shocks, bushings, anti-roll bars, strut tower bars, wheels and tires. -Bolt-on performance-air induction systems, cam timing and overdrive pulleys, headers, exhaust systems, ignition, and ECU technology. -Hard core engine modification-complete engine swap information that tells you which are the best and easiest swaps and which are the ones to avoid, pistons, head work, cams, engine building tricks, supercharging vs. turbocharging, and nitrous. -Exterior/ interior styling - exterior styling components (including rear deck wings), a chapter on exterior graphics and interior design-seats, door panels, gauges, and cages. -Performance driving-road racing and autocross, drag racing, and driving schools. Written by Alan Paradise, the import performance pioneer and creator and original editor of Sport Compact Car magazine, Civic Duty gives you all the answers! In addition to providing the specs and costs involved in building the ultimate sport compact, Alan lays out his unique "build by subtraction" method of intelligently deciding how to select and build the right Honda for you-the one that will give you the most satisfaction with the least amount of pain to your bank account.
