King Motorsports Unlimited, Inc. - Mugen Performance Products for Honda and Acura

Vintage Catalogs - King Motorsports Unlimited

We recently came across an OG customer who had all three catalogs that King created in the late 80s / early 90s. Each of these hand-assembled catalogs was called a Volume and included a carefully curated collection of Mugen parts, King parts, information about Mugen, and information about King's racecars and services. Each include thoughtful introductory letters written by King's CEO Scott and are a terrific snapshot of Honda/Acura performance culture at the time.

Because we don't spend much time looking in the rear view, we actually didn't have these Volumes anymore in our own library of literature. In fact we only printed about 1000 of each Volume. So Bill Yoon generously loaned the Volumes to us (including the price list inserts) for us to scan and make available to share with our friends!

Mugen Variable & Showa Winning Suspension

If you've ever popped your hood, climbed into your trunk, or crawled under your car to adjust your dampener settings (was that 4 clicks or 5?), you'll appreciate these electronically-controlled variable suspension kits. Mugen released these quality suspension kits circa 1987 and they allow for convenient SOFT, MEDIUM, and HARD adjustment within the cockpit courtesy of OEM fit-and-finish, dash-mounted switches.

2001 J.A.S. ETCC Accord Drive Line Assembly



Below is an archival photo of the 2001 J.A.S. ETCC Accord drive line assembly. Destroked H22 with a Xtrac sequential 5 speed. The cylinder heads were rotated 180 degrees so the intake was to the front of the car so the engine could be rotated back. This allowed the engine centerline to be lower in the chassis and improving the handling. These cars were incredibly engineered, rivaling F1 cars of the era.
