Eibach Meet Southeast 2018

The Honda mega-meet adds a track day to its Florida visit

After a successful Southeast debut in April of 2017, co-founder Ryan Hoegner and the Eibach Meet returned to Florida for its sophomore effort. And much like the year prior, the event brought with it some of Florida's best Honda builds, along with some visitors from surrounding regions.

For 2018, the Saturday (April 21st) afternoon gathering was strictly comprised of Hondas and Acuras but was supplemented by a follow up track day that took place at The Firm, or Florida International Rally & Motorsports Park. The split personality event would help appease the show and shine crowd as well as the track junkies, and not surprisingly it was a welcome addition.

Mother nature cooperated throughout the weekend and along with all of the Honda builds in attendance were vendors on hand to offer product and answer questions as well as display some demo cars of their own.

The growth and attention garnered by the 2018 effort will surely bring the Eibach Meet back to Florida in 2019. Beyond the fact that this upstart is showing real promise in the Southeast, it's further testament that Honda enthusiasm in general is stronger than ever.

Our man in the Southeast, Josh Rivera, was in attendance to snap plenty of coverage for you. Eibach's next event is in SoCal, May 6th, at Fontana Speedway, and will offer both a Honda meet and drag racing event. Registration can be found at here.

The K-swapped CR-Z builds haven't really caught on yet, but that didn't stop Albert Marty from putting this K24-powered, Mugen aero-equipped version together. If the name sounds familiar, you might remember his supercharged EJ hatch

What looks to be an H2B combo powers this Civic hatchback fitted with a J's Racing front lip and dual carbon fiber bumper ducts.

Right next to the King Motorsports booth sat this AP1 combo. The yellow version fitted with a Mugen wing and MF10s is as simple as it gets, and certainly stands the test of time. The red version has been fitted with a Mugen bumper and hardtop and sits on polished MF10s.

Some attendees, like this Midori green Civic EH, decided to pull double duty and attend the meet on Saturday and the track event on Sunday.

We spotted this black del Sol last year but couldn't see under the hood. This year we get a better look at the SOHC turbo set up in the bay.

The outside of this yellow ITR looked just right with its CE28 wheels, plenty of tire, Mugen wing and Ganador mirrors. Under the hood it only gets better, with a supercharged K-swap and baller status XRP lines.

An abundance of Civic and Integra builds didn't scare off a few examples of Honda's flagship. This blue NSX sported a Spoon bumper and calipers combined with custom sized and black chrome finish Mugen MF10s.

Ultra clean both inside and out, this EJ hatch featured an authentic Mugen front lip (not the knock-off version that's been molded to fit every Honda ever created) and wing along with bronze TE37s. In the bay you'll find an equally clean K20 with a detailed "lobster tail" intake mounted with a Vibrant Vanjen clamp.

Though the K20 and K24 swaps seemed to be the most common at the meet, B-series power could still be found. Jason Hastings' ITB Integra is a perfect example.
