Florida Eibach Meet 2019

Eibach brings the masses, Florida brings the quality

Testing the waters and finding success in 2017, followed by significant growth in 2018, meant that the world-famous Eibach Meet was all but locked in for its third annual event in Florida—even before the staff hit the airport for the trip back to SoCal.

Getting the word out about a new event and having enough of a draw to interest locals is always tough for a new gathering. Given the Eibach Meet's reputation with almost 15 years of SoCal success, locals were well aware of the event's overall feel and knew there was a good chance some rarely seen builds were going to make their way out of the woodwork, and for the past three years they've been right.

Being an "open arms" event that allows everyone to take part means mildly modded cars with just a few bolt-ons are more than welcome along with some high-caliber builds that can no doubt hold their own at a car show, track event, or both. And speaking of track events, the Florida meet also includes a track option for those wanting to turn some laps the day after the meet.

In terms of higher-level builds at the meet this year, Florida certainly didn't disappoint. Quality parts, plenty of custom fabrication, and some nicely executed engine bays that looked to be packing some serious power kept attendees busy throughout the afternoon. K-swaps outnumbered most everything else in the VIP parking area, and boost could be found everywhere. Beyond the sheer power and well-done swaps were plenty of fine details and further proof that the Florida region hasn't lost a step in the Honda building community.

These custom re-barrelled Mugen MF10s are a far cry from the skinny OEM wheels that once struggled to fill the wells when this NSX rolled off the assembly line around three decades ago.

And that NSX wasn't alone at the event, joined by this white model on bronze, original issue MF10s and this blue NSX, also sporting a customized version of Mugen's iconic roller.

This Honda Integra Type R was fitted with Mugen aero and a set of Regamaster Evos that, in our opinion, featured the perfect width and offset for the DC5 fenders.

It wouldn't be an Eibach Meet without a Downstar Inc. booth and next to the hardware specialist's canopy was this boosted teal EH Civic loaded with Downstar beauty washers throughout the bay and covering most of the engine components as well.

YouTube personality Percy Mescudi (Zosh) brought his formerly turbocharged B-series Integra to the event and showed off its K24 heart. As you're reading this, Percy is on a cross-country road trip with Hybrid Racing to attend the SoCal leg of the Eibach Meet series.

You first saw these Mugen wheels attached to their Tokyo Auto Salon display FK8 earlier this year and based on social media comments, they weren't a favorite among fans. However, the 20-inch multi-spoke offering seems far more natural bolted up to this A-spec ILX and might just change your mind. Maybe.

Day 2 of the Florida Eibach Meet took place at the track.

Though there weren't as many participants as the day prior, those that did show up to turn some laps had a blast.
