HERE WE GO AGAIN.... HOPE YALL LIKE IT....Dammit CAPS
« on: February 06, 2012, 06:03:38 am »
.Ok ya'll here we go. Friday night i bought my first wagon (only my second Honda) Here are some photos of when i bought it, and some of what i have started doing to it.








Some of the parts that came with it.






This is my rugrat He is a 2nd gen Honda tuner in the making. He already says his favorite car is a Honda Civic



And Their Engine bay  :-X  >:(



Wow i think i got a great deal for 500 bucks.... it has an Ebay steering wheel. along with Ebay coilovers up front and stock springs in the back. The interior (although stained a little) is dirty but the dash is Crack and fade free The seats are completel y tear free, and all the windows are in perfect shape.

So far the only things i have done is repainted the engine bay Gloss Black. (Why did they paint it Smurf blue of all colors)




And i started the wire tuck




Originall y when i started the tuck, i was going to bring all the wires out the side of the fenders and then tuck them through the frame rail, then bring them back in through the front of the engine bay. BUT i have since rerouted them back into the bay then out the fender wells and Under the frame rail to their destinati on. I figure this way I dont have any gaping holes in the firewall where the wire harness used to be (in a normal tuck) And i relocated the Fuse panel from the engine bay to behind the Glove compartme nt (yes i mounted it to the back of the Glove compartme nt tray) (i will get pics of that up by tomorrow night)
I am going to repaint the car, the guy i bought it from said someone else painted the sun on the roof. Doesn't matter i kinda like it and will keep the design and just repaint it with the colors i want ....Teal on top, Graphite gray on bottom (and in the black of the sun). I have no engine and I could really really use ya'lls help with that one. I dont know if i want to stay with the Stock D15b7 (dual point) and 4 speed tranny that came with the car from the factory. Or do i want to go with a Y8 block/Z6head,or a D16a6bloc k/ZC head combo. Or even... a B18A1... What do ya'll think? I know i want to stay with an Si tranny (i love the 5 spd)

So here it is in a semi put together shot....

Ok a few updates here. For starters my D16-Z6 deal fell through so now i am on the motor hunt again, change of plans though i think i am just gonna stick with the SOHC Non V-Tec MPFI setup. ( i am really kind abummed about the deal though.
Secondly; I received my suspensio n setup yesterday

Dont give up!. DOHC ZC!, they look good, you can stay OBD0, they take the same trans, and they use D-series mounts. oh, and they have a lot more HP and Tq over the SOHC's.

And it is pretty much a direct fit (mount wise)

Research them, they are also a direct fit mount wise. adding an extra cam doesnt hurt you that bad gas wise. MAYBE 2-3 MPG. they still get 30-35 depending on the motor/driver. If I had it to do over again thats probably what I would have put in my car.
