Alex Reyes 1996 Civic DX build

OMG!!! Yes that was my reaction to Alex Reyes as he finalized his final touches on his 1996 Honda DX.

As a fellow friend of Alex and 52 Squad member, I saw how the build was coming along. For those of you that dont know, this build took more than a year to to finaly get back on the streets.

From alot of set backs, like the painter leaving the car in a bad shape to parts not coming in, this car in my opinion should of been done in a matter of months, but hey the wait is over and at the end it was all well worth it. Alex gave me a chance to drive it around and I have to say WOW, this thing drives amazing. The sound of the engine is something else compared to all the other DOHC engines I have driven. Point is, this thing is awesome and fun to drive. From a far you can see the shiny blue raspberry metallic paint.

Once next to it, you can see the BBS RS dipped in copper. Also the most noticeable thing about the car is the gutted interior with the custome roll cage by City Garage.The Recaro seats with Takata harness also viewable.

From the back view a rare Osaka Jdm Wing can be seen, with the polished Function 7 lower control arms and Function 7 subframe. During the months of Alex working on his car he was releasing pictures on Instagram.

Most of you guys got a glimpse of his engine, which was complety redone. So many thing were done to it that I will just point out the important ones out. The copper Valve cover gives it a clean and new look. The triple chrome Skunk2 intake manifold really does put the cherry on top, making it one of a kind. The Skunk2 Mega power header can also be seen. The Rywire tuck engine harness just completes the whole engine.

Overall the build just comes all together very well. Im excited to see what else has planned for this car as he say hes not fisniehed yet. Thank you all for looking, down below is the list of mods that includes almost eveything Alex did to his car.
