Looks exactly like mine, the ej22 is a great little engine. Has been super reliable for me even with all the "spirited driving". A friend of mine owns a 1.8 Brighton and said the difference is ridiculous. Hope to see more updates in the near future!

I have a Rallycross vid from an event in Pittsburg,Illinois that clearly demonstartes the 1.8"s struggle to accelerate. I'm running an open exhaust and you can clearly hear the drone of the engine. Everyone asks, "Why didn't you floor it?" "It was WIDE OPEN!!"
