Well had been a really busy week going through to finish the cars that we were putting up at the stall for my college, which turn out to be a track ready honda civic with most fo the body replaced with carbon fibre a roll cage, and all other equipment, the beast was dynoed at 135hp to the wheels (N/A engine), with the type-R transplant it was the fastest car we had going just a week before the show but then luck shown on us, as the next car the college had bought for building for drag racing turned up and it was 01 Honda Civic SI, stunning in black, but then came the heart breaking suprise of them all we were instructed that this car too had to be preped and completed to be displayed at the stall.... Well we knew that spring break was no more a break and had to buckle up and work For the preformance side a supercharger had to go in with the block and transmission completely rebuilt and the stand alone programed, for the handling and saftey the rollcage and the full purpose drag built suspension and replace most of the body pannels with carbon fiber and send it to the paint booth was a huge task at hand, which was all finished with just one day to the show and the programming and the dynoing was yet to be done (as both cars had to be driven to the show). Given we had just about 4hrs to land up at the show and set eveything it was a dash to get the Black Si completed and driven to the Convention Center in Downtown Denver. With All done on the car we pulled out a 165hp on the wheels for the little car and we headed with the cars and all other display equipment to the Auto Show...
As we reach we get to drool on some of the new cars and concepts in flesh even before the rest of the world can sight on them and were totally lost... i will end all my writing and let the Pics do the talking..

All the time i have had, have to go to the show now will post the pics in the night today, pls hang on
