Working at IPG is fun. We get to be involved in an industry that we are passionate about day in and day out. In addition to building and racing our own cars we get the opportunity to work with a wide array of customers around the world. Chris Dutkewycz is one of those people. It is always enjoyable to be associated with an enthusiast and racer that has a never say die attitude and keeps coming back for more to meet their goals. Chris purchased this 1996 Honda Civic Hatchback from us as a rolling chassis and in turn finished the project into a 9 second street car. Chris is a talented fabricator in the Pittsburgh, PA area running CDFab so as you would think building the necessary components for his Turbocharged EK was part of the fun. Using high quality budget friendly parts was another important part of the process and you can see with the result when you put it all together good things happen.
