Modified Mag Flashback: Chris Scarangella’s K20 CRX

by Dave September 27, 2017

As a Columnist and Contributor to Modified Magazine, I’ve been lucky enough to photograph and write about some pretty cool K-swapped Hondas. One of my all-time favorites goes all the way back to the summer of 2006, when my buddy Moose and I shot Chris Scarangella’s 1990 Honda CRX Si for the Feb ’07 issue of the mag.

Chris is one of the true Honda faithful, buying his Si in ’04 and building it with nothing but legit hardware, much of it of the rare and highly coveted JDM and EDM variety (like the Mugen NR10 wheels, Spoon kevlar bucket seats, and EDM SiR front bumper and flush mount rear spoiler). But Chris also brought it strong under the hood, with a K20A Type R swap that pumped a rock solid 221 whp.

But what was really special about Chris’ story was the lengths (literally) he went to during the build. Hailing from the Toronto, Ontario area, Chris drove his Frost White EF across the continent, to San Jose, CA, where his good friend Ryan Basseri helped him swap in and wire up the K20. During his time in California, Chris also headed south to LA to visit a friend who’d been sitting on the brand new still-in-the-box Mugen rims you see on Chris’ car here.

Although Chris had to park his CRX for a few years, recently he’s been hard at it again, shaving the engine bay to go along with a brake line and wire tuck. He’s also landed some sweet new JDM goodies, including a J’s Racing wing and hood. For a peek at where Chris’ Rex stands at the moment, check out his build thread over on NWP4LIFE.

The 2018 Formula One season is upon us and if the season is anything like testing in Barcelona, it's going to be quite a ride. I won't go into the ramblings of what the series should or shouldn't do now that Liberty Media is at the helm, but I will talk about one of the more exciting things...

The Anatomy Of A Hybrid Racing Shifter Cable
The Anatomy Of A Hybrid Racing Shifter Cable

by David Cordell March 08, 2018

Hybrid Racing performance shifter cables are built to be stronger, more durable and smoother than OEM counterparts. Not only do we have a stronger, thicker flexible steel inner strand, our cables also come with a PTFE coated liner which reduces friction resulting in a smooth, efficient operation. The most significant difference compared to an OE cable is the armor steel jacket that not only protects the inner membrane but serves to compress the liner preventing the core from moving inefficiently.
