It's not a racecar. It's a streetcar.
« on: February 04, 2014, 03:13:51 pm »
Hey, kids, my name's Micah. I live in Western PA. I'm 21. This is my car. I got it when I was 15 and haven't changed it much since I was 18. College kills time and money.

So what we have here is a 1991 Civic Dx. It's my daily and has been since I was 16. I got it bone stock with a snapped timing belt on the D15.

It's come a long way since then. Currently, it has run a best of 11.73 at 125mph in the quarter mile on street tires and with a full interior (shooting for high 10's this summer). The car is a street car and always will be. I will never gut it or bolt slicks to it. Ever.

The engine is a stock-sleeved and mildly built B18C1. Stock head with ITR cams and Supertech 84lb valvespri ngs and titanium retainers . The power comes from a Holset HX-35/40 hybrid turbo. I fabricate d and welded the intake piping, the exhaust, the 6-point roll bar, and the front crossmemb er as well as all the other little odds and ends...yo u know how it is.

The suspensio n setup is pretty basic with GC coils (400f/500r) on Koni Yellows and extended tophats. I also threw in a CRX rear anti-swaybay for that extra stiffness .

The interior is basically stock. Nothing to report here other than the roll bar and SFI harness for the drag strip.

I drive this thing everywher e and have been for years. I've never had to rebuild the engine or trans. It's as reliable as can be. It even made the 16 hour round trip to H2Oi and back without a hiccup.

Here's a few snaps of the old girl. Enjoy! (p.s. it's actually more of a photo dump)





(this isn't me....)













Thanks to 1mellowki d for turning me on to this site. You go, kid.

Thanks for the kind words, guys. And thanks for posting this heap on your Facebook page, good sir.



As for power, I don't really like giving out numbers. Because then people compare numbers. Which is silly. Because numbers don't get you down the track. ;)

But because you asked kindly I can give a general idea. It's over 450whp on a Mustang dyno.
