Lee’s ’99 Turbo Civic Si

Long ago, this was Lee’s first car. The EM Civic Si was the first Si in the US to come with the DOHC B16a engine*. The high revving 1.6L coupled to a very close ratio transmission made this a fun car to drive right off the showroom floor. Alas, there is always room for improvement! Not satisfied with a stock Civic, Lee added a Greddy turbo kit and a few modest suspension upgrades.
