Written by Joey Lee, Honda Tuning Magazine, Rodrez, Editor - Honda Tuning Magazine

There are many times in life when we experience brief moments that inspire us forever. These ripples in time may not be noticeable at first, but if you believe in fate, these moments can actually dictate future events. More often than not, these random events affect how we as enthusiasts build our cars. It could be an unexpected encounter with an inspirational build you see at a meet, a car you see at a show, or even something you see in a magazine like Honda Tuning. Life has a funny way of working things out. Today we will be taking an in-depth look at two Canadian Honda owners, with two very different stories-but as fate would have it, both men ended up on equal paths to build the ultimate Integra Type R that they both had once only dreamed of. Eric Daoust, owner of one of Canada’s premier tuner shops, sought to build an ITR once again after regretfully selling a previous R. Matthew Drost, a loyal customer of Daoust, longed to build another Integra Type R after an unfortunate accident destroyed his first.

Though Eric has spent the majority of his life surrounded by Hondas, his upbringing might have steered him in a different direction. “I grew up surrounded by cows, tractors, and trucks,” Daoust explains. “How I got into Hondas I’ll never really be able to explain. I should have been driving a Mustang or an F150 pick-up, but instead I just fell in love with Hondas. The Honda that got me hooked back then was an '88-'91 Prelude. It was my first Honda and I’ve never looked back since.”

It was that Prelude that set the rest of his life in motion. He was so focused on doing whatever he possibly could to his Honda that it often distracted him from his studies at Carleton University. “I became so involved with my car that I eventually changed my major from political science to study in business. It all worked out and here I sit today as the owner of Teknotik, one of Canada’s largest Honda specialty shops. Opening this business has given me so many opportunities to be around Hondas and meet great people.”

One Stop Shop

Eric Daoust may love his Integra Type R unconditionally, but his real baby is his shop. Teknotik is Canada’s premier one-stop shop for all automotive enthusiasts and you may have spotted their logo or vinyl sticker on more than one Canadian-built Honda Tuning feature car.

What kind of “custom fabrication”

You stock what you sell ,do you stock parts for other cars other then hondas?

awesome shop to deal with, bought a lot of stuff from them when I had my civic… not much nissan stuff tho…

Isnt this a nissan forum

^^ what he said.
I don’t hate the brand one bit but just wondering where the SON240 forum is heading.


Super reputable bunch of dudes… Eric and Jay rock and super helpful if you need anything.

Eric is very helpful. Customer service is the best I’ve experinced.

i dont see how that benefits me as a consumer of nissan parts though.

yea woulda been nice if you posted what you can get for us nissan guys.

because teknotik is looking to branch out and show the community that they do not only deal with honda parts, which is a very large misconception about the shop. eric is A+++++++++ peoples, and has always been there to help me out and come through when i’m in a bind. looking for parts for your nissan? call up teknotik and if they don’t have it in stock, they’ll order it and have it available ASAP.
