When most people think of the Honda Civic, they think of the 1990s riced-out econoboxes with fart cans and big wings that serve no function other than to look ridiculous. Not all Civics are the same, however, as those who know what they have and know how to get the most out of them turn them into extraordinary machines, capable of easily embarrassing an exotic car with a six-figure sticker price.

One such car is Jeury’s 1992 Honda Civic EG hatchback, featured on That Racing Channel (TRC) on YouTube. This little Japanese hatchback can do some pretty epic stuff and has a few secrets. How is this different than other heavily-modified Civics? All-wheel-drive! Throughout all generations, the Civics has always been front-wheel-drive. There’s no denying it’s the most budget-friendly layout, both for manufacturers and for those who need simple transportation. After certain horsepower figures, however, front-wheel-drive is not good.

And power it has! With 24 pounds of boost, Jeury’s little blue hatchback makes 650 horsepower at the wheels. With the adapted CR-V all-wheel-drive setup, the car easily takes the quarter-mile (402 meters) in just 9.4 seconds at 151 mph (240 km/h).

Honda’s engines are known for being bulletproof. Further testimony to that is the stock K24 Honda unit we see under the hood of Jeury’s little monster. Find out how the AWD Honda Civic came to be and how Jeury made it work.

Born in 1992, I come from a family of motoring enthusiasts. My passion for cars was awoken at the age of six, when I saw a Lamborghini Diablo SV in a magazine. After high school I earned a master’s degree in marketing and a Master of Arts in Media and Communications. Over the years, I’ve practiced and become skilled in precision driving and to date have test driven more than 250 cars across the globe. Over the years, I’ve picked up basic mechanical knowledge and have even taken part in the restoration of a 1964 Jaguar E-Type and an Alfa Romeo Giulia Sprint. Lately, I’ve taken a fancy to automotive photography, and while modern cars are my primary passion, I also have a love for Asian Martial Arts, swimming, war history, craft beer, historical weapons, and car restoration. In time, I plan my own classic car restoration and hope to earn my racing certificate, after which I expect to establish my own racing team.  Read full bio
