Alex’s impromptu photo shoot at the top of the Tropicana
It is a rare occurrence that you see a Honda that catches your eye. With all the Civic’s and Integra’s that you see at every show and meet, it is very difficult for a Honda enthusiast to differentiate themselves from the pack. William Troche’s imported right-hand drive Integra is the exception. With 80,000km’s on the odometer, this car for lack of a better term is a virgin. Completely stock and rust free this is what you call a perfect platform to modify, especially for a 20 year old car. Having owned others Honda’s such as a ’99 civic hatch and ’97 civic coupe, William is not a “noob” when it comes to modifying cars. First order of business was modifiy the ride height using K-sport Kontrol Pro coilovers
with a Skunk 2 camber kit to dial in the perfect amount of “flushness” without rubbing. +10 offset was used at all four corners of the Rota off-road grids wrapped in Federal tires 195/40/16. With the second-generation Integra becoming nearly extinct with all the theft and would-be car tuners hacking up perfectly good Honda’s, it is refreshing to see an owner who wants to enhance attributes of this car without over doing it.
Will is already looking to change his wheel set-up once again for a more aggressive stance and it would be his fifth set of wheels. He as already gone through the likes of bronze Volk TE-37’s, Mugen M7’s, and RC Starks
