When you grow up at the track watching your uncle run 9 second 1/4 mile passes in an AMC Gremlin, you tend to follow in their footsteps. This is no difference for Shawn Nichols.

Growing up in a low to mid income family is never easy and non-necessity items are always on the back burner. As for Shawn Nichols, he has much higher expectations. He chooses to save his money and invest in in top products rather than buying cheap and settling for less.

Shawn Nichols is the owner of a 1994 Honda Civic hatchback which is famous in the JDM scene when it comes to building track cars. From the day Shawn Nichols purchased his Honda Civic, he has invested his money on what he says, are the best parts available. Shawn Nichols' custom Civic was outfitted with a complete motor swap to a JDM D15b motor with a stage 3 vtec with performance headers, Megan Racing Exhaust and a Centerforce clutch set up. When I asked about his air intake system, Shawn Nichols explained how his civic uses a custom air intake tube that works with his engine swap, but clamped to the end is a universal K&N performance air filter. When it comes to the running gear, this Civic sits on 16" XXR wheels and Tokico Blue Struts mated with Skunk 2 Coils. As you can see Shawn Nichols is trying to keep this car as "JDM as possible," meaning Japanese Domestic Market style.

I asked Shawn Nichols why he used K&N's universal performance air filter to be part of his build. "K&N has been part of all of our family build , so why choose anything else," he explained. "It has always done my family right at the track so it was my only choice in my eyes!"

Shawn Nichols also mentioned that his 1994 Honda Civic is his daily driver. He is proud to drive it every day and gets a lot of praise from all his friends who enjoy the ride as well.
