It’s been 3 cars since I last owned my beloved zx2. The car that started all my modding. I guess I could go down the list since its been so long why the car was a good platform to begin with.
In 2000(the year I bought it) the zx2 had
- more torque and hp than the top of the line civic at the time
- weighed less than an integra or civic (i considered both competition)
- Zetec engine was a new an exicting platform with VCT on the exhaust side
- Cost was 5k less than a Integra and several thousand less than a civic
- Hondas were so over done
- Fords Zetec was a DOHC
Anyway I modded the hell out of it investing about 5k(all go no show) on top of the purchase price. Anyway if you have one in good running shape after being I’m sure the youngest z is probably 10 years old since they started in 98 it still has potential.
Alas we parted ways in 05 and I had a few hondas since but finally ended up with a Subaru Legacy 3.6R.
