http://www.marcleblanc.com/civic/IMG_3401_2.jpg

Then some body work

Then this

And these
http://i20.piczo.com/view/f/h/3/7/i/t/6/o/i/9/5/img/i197368267_41346.jpg

And then these

Stock are junk
http://i20.piczo.com/view/f/h/3/7/i/t/6/o/i/9/5/img/i204220131_63368.jpg

And then an interesting paint job
http://i20.piczo.com/view/f/h/3/7/i/t/6/o/i/9/5/img/i184716089_27250.jpg
http://i20.piczo.com/view/f/h/3/7/i/t/6/o/i/9/5/img/i184716084_37952.jpg

http://i20.piczo.com/view/f/h/3/7/i/t/6/o/i/9/5/img/i184716077_97684.jpg

And then time for the track(so primitave)

http://i20.piczo.com/view/f/h/3/7/i/t/6/o/i/9/5/img/i218026717_38318.jpg

http://i20.piczo.com/view/f/h/3/7/i/t/6/o/i/9/5/img/i242813216_87938.jpg

i found out that my buddy painted his EG hatch to a dark olive green, doesnt look too great on it, i think he should have kept it white too...but ED's / EF's seem to have a lot more colors that look good on them than the other generations.

so i got a new update, like i said earlier i wanted to have it done for the sport compact drag races this weekend... but then ran into some problems, one my tuner was booked solid and 2 the guy thats suppose to put the headgasket, headstuds, timing belt, cam gears and valve seals in didnt have time either..... I have also never missed this event in the past 4 or 5 years now and wasnt about too lol, so tomorrow the engine goes back in.... everything else is back together including all new brakes and bushings in the rear, with the rotas and a cf hood on the flat black, looks pretty sick.... anyways thought id keep you guys updated on the situation.... trust me boost is happening just when i can get the engine and tuning done.... i missed the old girl and tired of driving my winter beater in july lol

Its not a real greddy, I bought it off a guy and he had sprayed that on, and its 2 inlet, 2 1/4 outlet

Still waiting on the top piece to be made but other than that its done mechanically.... oh and it really needs a muffler bad lol 3 inch straight pipe hmmm wonder why lol

Got to finish doing inside of it also, just mostly putting it back together other than that its good to go.... Messaged my tuner today too but no response on when he can get me in, i know hes throwing a procharger on a brand new vette this week so that should take up some of his time

Wow didnt realize its been this long since i updated.... yes it does scream tint me, just had like 3 different shades of tint and then no tint on one window, so i said screw it and ripped it all off....

New updates are that its obd1 now, and danny is chipping my computer with a base map just to make sure it idles fine and what not before we bring it up to him....

Other than that i got my pistons in today so over the winter i can throw them in my spare engine and go with bigger gear and actually push some numbers instead of the tease numbers ill be pushing this year

thanks again to people, its been slow i know, dad moved into a new house and shop so that took a lot of time, and then i had a hard time relocating a lot of parts...

Did a few other things also like hooked up the wideband and boost gauge, finished up the intercooler piping(for now) and put the interior all back in....

thanks man, i have been waiting on tuning, my tuner has been super busy and i only got it up there late last week, and then we had to tune my cousins em1 with an h22, he was going for a lot bigger numbers so he wins hahaha 480whp and 386wtq at 20psi FTW.... hopefuly sometime this week when i have time to get up there he can tune it for me

boosted_zc
10-04-2009, 04:19 PM
So i know this has been dead and i havent been updating but here it is... Had a couple little problems with injectors and what not, had to rip the entire harness out of the car and run new wires to solve the problem... Next since i did my obd1 conversion i get the tdc code, cant exactly figure it out, tried two td43u dizzys and still get the same thing... but it ran fine so whatever seeing how the tdc only accures at start up.... then i decided it was gonna be dumb to spend a bunch to get it tuned to only drive it for a month when next year this whole setup will be sold and i would have to get it entirely retuned... Had my cousins ecu in from his h22 civic that was boosted, got his aem map sensor off of him and got his 1000's also since he gave up on his for the year... i figured out that my car drives fine with it in... rich but oh well... so now ive been driving it for the last two weeks, all i can say is wow i missed my car lol and boost doesnt hurt either... I would never drive it with it untuned but really i just watch the wideband, its rich but rich is awhole lot better then lean and if anything happens to the engine im not to worried as im building another zc with built internals for next year and have 2 extra spare zc's laying around...

anyways i was with a couple buddies the other night and one took some pics, oh and just so you all know i lowered it more in the front yesterday. Didnt realize until the pics that it was to high in the front and windows will be retinted for next year

I'd watch it...your AFRs could be spot on, but you have no idea what the timing is doing in the map. Watch how fast it blows up if the timing map is off.....

Good build though, my buddy did a dohc zc crx. He used TunerToys rods and some smaller company pistons, he spent $1100 on the whole build including the car lol. He did block posting with the block, you might want to look into it. Endyn does it on all of their race motors.

pics of his engine:
TunerToys rods are rated for 650-700whp, and priced at about $250 for a set.

http://farm3.static.flickr.com/2564/3787213212_97991ec589_b.jpg

A guy around here had a dohc zc turbo crx with stock sleeves and block posts, pushing a little over 600whp running 10s and it held up fine.

He ended up spending another $1100 on the tune alone, having to convert to obd1 (he originally tried to stay obd0 with TurboEdit, but converted to Chrome), it was a huge mess. After all was said and done, on an evo3 big16g turbo, he put down 293whp @ 19psi. Stock head and dsm 450cc injectors.

Heres what you have to look forward to with your turbo dohc zc! Heres 2 videos I shot of the car before he sold it (and yes thats an EK cluster he wired in):

Very happy with the numbers for a crappy old zc with a stock intake manifold, and cams, car works very well which makes me happy

Fuel was holding me back and was leaning out at like 8000 on my 365 passes, maybe ill get a meth kit or just mix with some funny smelling gas to hit a bit higher numbers for miramichi on the 20th

So new update, Run down of the night at Tuesday night test and tunes in miramichi, first pass- 12.07 with a 1.88 60 foot :)... Before the second was letting it cool down with the fan on, I unplugged the boost controller(it ticks and was annoying me), forgot to plug it back in.. So second pass 12.5 @ 110 at 10 pounds lol 3rd pass, launched good, shifting into second not so much... Blew the diff, good thing my obx LSD is sitting on my buddies shelf :) Crappy part, had to leave the car there until i can get a truck and trailer to go get it (its an hour and a half away)... I bring a lot of spare parts(3 spare axels) but no trannies :P

ran it at the track and with 22 inch slicks that werent getting traction and a ****ed up second(had to slowly shift to get it in gear) ran a 12.07 @ 120

Not the greatest way to start the offseason
So friday went from happy to crappy really fast... shipped out a set of cams last week to bisimoto, been in contact back and forth and so far theyve been really good... anyways so i check my email yesterday and see that i have a new one from bisimoto saying we have received your package... i was like right on now im pumped, open the email to read this..

We received your package yesterday. The package was empty. Contents must have fallen out during transit... please follow up with usps if item was insured.

So now i dont know what to do, gotta call the post office 1 800 line monday morning to see what they will do even though my package wasnt insured i only have the set of cams that are in the car left i think, which i didnt really wanna take out since id like to be able to move the car in the next month...

All in all not a great way to start the car offseason

*update found i had another spare set of cams, just sucks cause its another 30 bucks out of my pocket

So havent updated in awhile, took my transmission out to find some carnage inside... Lucked out ben just so happened to have an extra set of shift forks laying around

Not to mention we found that my release bearing fork wasnt extending all the way, theres my clutch problem... Changed it with the one on my other transmission and thats fixed :)

So i put it all back together and installed my new skunk2 short throw since i broke my old short throw last year lol and was tired of a stock one
http://a2.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/195945_10150160573039921_512929920_6492801_4314576 _n.jpg

Anyways put it all back in and with even 3 days to spare before speedsport(Local car show) so i could drive it around
http://a8.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/206248_10150164177969921_512929920_6519626_7085645 _n.jpg

But we all know my luck so drove it out of my uncles garage and parked it outside... next day went to take it to work since i got all my insurance and inspection and plates taken care of... Wasnt even punching it, barely going over 3000 before shifting gears... Got to the end of the road and well the end bearing in the tranny seized up or something... Great times, still havent taken it out but hopefully going to start to rip it apart thursday when im off

Picked up my zcspeed intake manifold adapter from ken at speedsport though
http://a4.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/206336_10150178722449921_512929920_6640969_7981923 _n.jpg

Nobody makes an intake manifold for the zc so we have to buy this 140$ adapter so we can run an aftermarket dseries one

When im ripping the engine and tranny out again this week im taking the turbo off and sending it away to blaast to get freshened up so i can hopefully start driving the civic for the start of may... Cams, adapter, intake manifold and aem fuel rail will all be put on at the end of may hopefully and some tuning at JD racing, just intime for race season :) oh and to finish off this post, ive been watching fast and the furious 1 the entire time...

Well i finally got the transmission problem fixed, was working great... I do need a second gear syncro but that will have to wait till next year now..

I did bring it to the track a month ago though... 5:30 am wake up call, drive an hour and a half to the local track... Adjust the suspension and throw the 24.5's on it... Drop them to 8 pounds and get ready for some 7000rpm two step launches
http://a5.sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc6/246670_10150216784547836_500267835_7131652_1559749 _n.jpg

Well that lasted long, broke the back of the casing where it bolts to the back mount right off the first launch... My own stupidity for not tapping one of the holes and rethreading another, got convinced to go the night before so whatever... Its life shit happens.. It sure did hook hard though so i may be a little excited to see what happens if it stays together next time :D

So the next weekend i finally got a chance to rip it out in my uncles garage, did that but my cousins husband didnt have time or space in his garage to modify my spare case and swap the obx lsd into it for another 2 weeks(for those of you that know its not just a straight swap)

But he finally got to it at the end of last week and then 2 days later i got it back in, with all 3 of the back holes having good threads in this case :).. So now im back to beating the crap out of it on a daily basis with really no problems. Hoping to get back to the track at the end of the month when i get some more funds saved up

Still havent installed the cams or bought an intake manifold... Intake manifold might not happen till next year so dont know if i should even bother throwing the cams in with the stock one.. Any suggestions???

I did install one thing though, a new sticker to promote a buddy of mines blog

The cams should make a big difference even with a stock intake mani.

I was seriously thinking about a ZC, but the issues finding parts and extra expense... I'm convinced something built on this continent is just an easier way to go lol

Honestly man its not hard to find parts for them at all, and yes i know this is an old ass post... All the interchange for parts can be found on www.thezcr.com bunch of good guys and always helpful

Anyways well i havent been on here much since my last update... I ran it for most of the summer with no problems, hit up the track again but had a problem with coupler that connects the turbo to my backdoored intercooler popping off... Fixed that and just drove it around for the next month and a half and it worked amazing as usual... Right until like 2 weeks before the big import race... The harness wiring and the conversion harness are pretty f*cked and i wasnt able to fix it before the race and never got it fixed cause i just got frustrated with it... So instead i rented a car with a bunch of buddies and hit up englishtown new jersey for the fall nationals, and what a time that was... Ridiculous cars and racing i must say and an awesome time

Blog that my buddy did about the event

Since then i thought about fixing it but with winter coming and the winter beater needing work i decided to do the responsible thing and park it and just save it for spring time... So now it sits in my driveway and will only see the roads again in april...

Plans are the following-
-Change harness's, body and dash and eliminate the junky conversion harness i got
-Take the exhaust off and bring it to get a new flex pipe welded in at my uncles
-Take the head off and change the head gasket, get the head all checked out
-Possibly pick up a new turbo, theres a 6262 local that buddy is selling at a decent price
-Then its time to buy an intake manifold and put the cams in and change the fuel lines if i find time
-Cage it and get new seats for it

So ya this is the list since this year was a bust but im hoping to come out bigger and better for next

I know you posted the video a long a** time ago, but I just went through your thred and watched it and realised it was called "Maritime Sport compacts 2010".. Just wondering where about in the maritimes you were from? Also noticed the GTI had an mvoc sticker under the hood ;) hahah, im from Nova Scotia and most of the builds ive seen on here are all from the states.

Glad you're still around, you've got one of the more interesting builds. I've decided on boosting a z6 for the 91, and I cheated and got a GSR swap for the 92.

Bummer that making so much power tends to break unexpected stuff. Still though, sounds like it was fun while it lasted, and you probably never would've figured out that weak point on the street or without the slicks on it.

Do you know where he sold the car too..? Because one of my buddys from down here has a T-red GTI from california that looks identical to it.. Might be the same car :P

Havent updated in a bit again, just the winter crap im use to... The car itself it hasnt really moved since october when i parked it, to cold to work on it most times and the nice days i usually end up working.. But for christmas dad gave me the gift of safety a roll cage that will be getting installed in the spring sometime.. This means i have to try and go a little faster and make it worth it

Also decided to buy some recaros from a friend here since my seats have been f*cked for a long time.. They were out of her evo 3?? so i'll have to modify the rails so they work in the civic but im excited to have some nice seats for once

And then I just got in my new edelbrock performer x intake manifold for a z6 that will be paired with my adapter plate to help it breath a little better and help the cams when they go in and got a new aem fuel rail also which is about as far as my fuel system will be built this year along with the walbro fuel pump i already have...

Only other things i really have buy for it is a new oem headgasket and the swing arm kit for the roll cage.. Looking to take off the head and get it checked over since ive beat on it quite a bit in the past 2 years

Heres the pics
Cage, rest of the bars are in the box
