Aaron Bonk first took an interest in Honda performance in the early 1990s. After studying mechanical engineering, he established Holeshot Racing—the first tuning shop to specialize in Honda engine swaps. There Bonk developed many Honda-specific engine transplants, long before engine mount kits and aftermarket wiring harnesses were realities. He later transitioned into a career as an automotive journalist, authoring two best-selling books, and has since held staff positions and contributed regularly to landmark Honda performance titles, including Sport Compact Car, Turbo and High-Tech Performance, Honda Tuning, and many other print and online publications. Bonk resigned as Honda Tuning’s Editor-in-Chief in 2009 but continues to contribute regularly. He resides in Yorba Linda, Calif. with his wife, daughter, and Acura NSX.
