4gcivic69
11-15-2007, 12:21 PM
yea i may do that or i may try and do it myself but i know it will be way easier for a shop to do it but deff cheaper if i do.. im not sure yet no matter what it will get new metal in the quarters no bondo job on this car

Silver Bullet
11-15-2007, 12:32 PM

4gcivic69
11-15-2007, 01:01 PM

Steven.
11-15-2007, 06:13 PM

11-26-2007, 03:23 PM
i bet alot of those engine plans will change, once you start buying parts, you will need the proper size turbo.
it will take you a long time to build.
since your only 17.

look into the garret GT turbos, but the turbo should be sized properly to your setup.

4gcivic69
11-26-2007, 03:29 PM
oh yea i know things will change without a doubt im just tryin to get an idea on what sort of turbo i should run.. i dont plan on even startin to peice the kit together until prolly the spring of 09 i just wanna get it running and inspected by the end of the upcoming year

Steven.
11-26-2007, 03:31 PM
and if your going to run a vtec engine, dont get a B16, atleast spend the extra on a B18c (GSR or type R)

4gcivic69
11-26-2007, 03:33 PM
im only gonna be runnig the head so i think it should be fine

edit:if i can find a good deal on a b16 trans i would buy a gsr engine

4gcivic69
12-04-2007, 05:16 PM

i dont see why not? as long as its a dohc non vtec b series valve cover it should fit.

nice build by the way i am also goin b18 in my 4 door ef, btw i dont know what you plan to do about the alternator but I am making a bracket to mount it in the front of the engine bay insead of bashing in the wall in the back. I would highly suggest it.

4gcivic69
12-17-2007, 01:20 PM
yea idk about the alternator yet i just wanna get this motor together so i can replace the quarters on this car and get it ready for inspection

SilentMist
12-17-2007, 08:05 PM
Bro take that head to a Machine SHop and Have someone look that thing over that dull orangy gold color on the inside of that head means Lack of lubrication it was starvin for her oil boss make sure it dont go no cracks no where man.

4gcivic69
12-17-2007, 08:44 PM

10-25-2009, 03:45 AM
Well after goin through 3 cars since i last worked on this i have decided its time to bring this back.. Since i always wanted a rex i will be sticking with it this time around.. My Goal For right now is to get this rollin and possibly have the interior together by this spring.. Between working full time and my truck payment what little time and money i have will be going into this but expect some little updates every now and then.. i think tommorow im gonna throw the rear suspension on the car so if i do ill post some pics up.. This car is going to be built as a backroad/autocross car so it will stay na the zc for now but i will be upgrading to something better if anyone has any comments or suggestions throw them out there im open to ideas on the motor or the build

4gcivic69
10-25-2009, 08:11 PM
Well I got my rear camber kit, toe kit and my stock lower control arms on for now.. im going to go get some under coating now to do my trailing arms cuz they are a bit rusty i just ordered new trailing arm bushings and i will have some nice new looking trailing arms for it.. Some pics will be up tomorrow
