New Site

Hi,

Welcome to my new site about my Honda CR-X siR.  My old site can still be viewed at http://www.turbovtec.com/index2.html

I’ve owned the CRX since 2002, but in late 2004 I blew the engine after not remapping the ECU when installing the new exhaust system (engine ran lean).

Coupled with a local (now out of business) car electronics company screwing up my car loom – the CRX sat in my garage untouched until 2012!!  My missus said it was about time I got it back on the road, and with the help of Nominous from CRX-UK we got the car running again…. actually to be really accurate, Nominous got it running again and I made him many cups of tea.

The car is now back on the road, passing it’s MOT.  Currently (as of Jan 2013) it’s running and still fairly stripped out.  Come spring I plan to get all the interior back in and the incar PC running again.
