Wrecka’s Turbo D Build…Introduction

Many of you readers would know that whenever a turbo Honda build is mentioned only one question comes to mind, is it a B or a K series motor? In this instance Ryan ‘Wrecka’ Carrington chose to go against the grain and went with a D Series motor. Some may wonder why he would do such a thing; we actually asked the same question and his response was “I like being the underdog”. The bond with the D series came about through making a daily commute to and from his shop (Area 5 Autoworks) in his turbo D series EJ coupe. After pushing the stock D series motor to its limits, the idea of owning an all out drag version was always lingering in the back of his mind.

Being close friends with Ryan we were hearing about the prospects of this project for a while so naturally, when things started to fall into place he reached out to us to document the progress.

Having been around from the start we have some really good coverage to show you guys today. We’ll start with some photos of his previous turbo D project and then get right into the current build from the day he first brought it home. As with all other projects this won’t be any different. We will be providing you with full coverage, from start to finish.
