Niels Buseyne - 1994 Honda Civic EG3
I swapped the engine from a d13b2 (1300cc) carbonated to a d16z6 (1600cc) with stock power of 130bhp. For me personally, it was an awesome upgrade, an engine swap in Belgium is highly illegal however, I have doubled the power now. It only had 75bhp to start off with!!

1994 Honda Civic EG3
I am 24 years old, residing in Belgium and I currently work as an electrician. I am an owner of 3 Honda's and a proud member of Japgarage. I currently drive a 1994 Honda Civic EG3! When I was 16 years old, I fell in love with Honda, no one in that area actually owned one at the time! I literally saw it on top gear once and since then, I caught the bloody bug, I was absolutely obsessed from there onwards. Before I even turned 18 I already owned my Civic EG and then I obtained my driving licence on my birthday, so basically the Civic was my first car and still is my first car and has been owned by me for almost 7 years!! Crazy hey? When you love one thing, you just never let go!
What got me into the car scene? The ultimate question of all times, everyone loves to know how people became the petrol heads that we are! So, I went to a car event with some friends years back, who aren't really into the car scene but they just like cars! At that event, I met a guy who also drove an EG at the time and how big can this change be! Coincidentally, he only lived 30 minutes away from my home and because of him, I had my very first step into the car scene and met a lot of people with Honda's, the obsession just grows more and more from there! I was in heaven already and all of this even happened before I commenced the build of my Civic. For 2 years the Civic was just purely my daily driver with a lot of rust and per usual many shades of red! Thanks to the new friends I met that then provided me with a lot of knowledge and taught me many things, they supported my build step by step!
My car stats? I swapped the engine from a d13b2 (1300cc) carbonated to a d16z6 (1600cc) with a stock power of 130bhp. For me personally, it was an awesome upgrade, an engine swap in Belgium is highly illegal however, I have doubled the power now. It only had 75bhp to start off with!!

I attempt to do the majority of the work myself however, the only things done professionally is the flocking of my interior and the paint job! I did do a lot of the sanding down at home on the civic and the engine swap was undertaken with help of friends! On this note, one of my main tips is, pay attention to the small details, they do make a difference to the final product!
I must admit, I am a Skunk2 fan and also love the rare parts or parts that are not easy to find! That's what makes my Civic unique to the rest of them!
The flocking was done by 'Takashi Customs' he's a great guy! He is also very good with Carbon Skinned Parts. You can find them on Facebook.
The paint job was done by 'D.E. Car Design' also a great guy! The only thing is, patience is required sometimes!
The Civic was my first car, however, is no longer my daily. I did have to build up to the stage I am at now. My dream car I would say is a car that becomes a never-ending build.
What project car is ever finished? I can say that my civic will never be finished, the next new updates are, some new wheels, a new spoiler, a wire tuck in the engine bay and a nice new respray to the bay! Making it clean and tucked is my next objective!
Pages/Groups/Forums I follow:-
- Deadbeatgarage; and
I do enter my car into competitions but as far as competition-wise, no! I enter them for fun, friends and the great reactions from other people. I like to inspire people with my build, so when someone sends me a question about the build itself, I make sure I always answer... If you have any questions, please feel free to give us a message on Instagram. Even though these competitions are just for fun, who doesn't like to win a prize? I don't give myself a lot to be the VIP, or to be in the battle to win something, only the big events or most of the time when they ask me, I rather like to provide people with change instead of being the one that's always in for the prizes....
I do attend events however, I tend to pick those with a selection and high-quality whips but, also the small ones with a good conviviality. From geographical scope, I attend international and national events! Most of them are here in Belgium of course. I have attended some in the UK such as MIMMS and I had also booked to go to Gravity in the UK however, Corona was on its way! In the Netherlands, I go too Japfest and Honda Fest and my most favourite, HondaEuroMeet AKA. HEM in France! This is the ultimate event of all times and would highly recommend attending if you're a Honda owner! For 6 years in a row now I have been going to this event and it's sooooooo good! A full weekend of only Honda's, one big Honda family!
My dream car at the moment is an FK8, which for sure will be my next daily! It has that aggressive look, and the required horsepower.... and a car where 'normal' people will always look at! As Honda enthusiasts, we all want an NSX! Just give me more money and I will get one! hahaha.
My current daily driver is a Honda Accord C;9, K24, Chipped to 236bhp, 280nm. My 3rd Car is a Honda Diesel Esi, just my cabriolet, I am currently building it OEM.
I've just recently purchased a house, so over the next few months I am moving out of my parents and the plan is to film all the stuff I do and start a YouTube channel. I already have a video on YouTube which was shot 2 years ago of the civic. So watch this space!
Thank you all for reading about my pride and joy, don't forget to follow me on Instagram for more!
