1998 Cx Honda Civic 5 Speed, Stock purple color with light gray interior.
The goal:
To make a U.S spec CTR...........went way off track=)

JDM CTR SRS steering wheel


After that I and my brother tryed to put power windows in..........Boy did we try, so i gave up and now the guy who is building my car is going to fin it for me.


Now i was going to put a k24 with a Type S head on and call it a day, but i talked to Dan (the guy who is working on my car) he said, do you know what would SICK? I said what, and he said and showed me a video clip og a Eg with a V6.
After that i was sold.
But one thing i mad very clear was that the car had to pass emission's
So it was green lighted.

So this is what i bought to make the swap possible.
2000 Honda 3.5L V6 pilot motor, it came with the stock auto ECU and auto trans. And thats what we are going to use.
2003 Honda Accord 6 Speed trans with shifter and cables
2003 Honda Accord 6 speed starter
2003 Honda Accord auto jack shaft
2003 Honda Accord 6 speed stock clutch with flywheel
Hasport custom 550 max axles
Hasport Eg V6 motor monts
After market stronger fuel filter
Custom wireing harness............talk a bout a pain
Will ad more when i know.

Suspenion
Skunk2 Pro C coilovers
Skunk2 Pro front camber kit
Skunk2 rear camber
Blox rear lower control arms
ASR frame brace
JDM ITR front 25mm sway bar
Energy Suspenion bushing kit
Some more things to come.......just have to wait

Brakes
JDM ITR 5 lug conversion
New F/R Brombo blanks disk
New F/R brombo pads
Goodridge S/S brake lines
S/S clutch line
07 Civic Si Rims
5mm spacer for rims to fit
Again, more to come for that.

Where the car is being worked on, ask for Don
http://profile.myspace.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=user.viewprofile&friendid=264080593

Where i got all my parts, dirt cheap. Ask for Odin.....like the dog with Garfild, he's my brother and will hook you up. Tell him Hans sent you. ( You must ask for him....not only will it help him out in sales, but he will help you out.....he really goes out of his way to help anyone.)

We went ahead and did the shifter,first we sliced off the lip where the stock shifter poped out of, just to see where we had to cut the floor.
We thought we were going to have to cut a hole in the floor like what they do for a K swap, but the shifter fits like a H22, nice and very little room under the center console.

http://i374.photobucket.com/albums/oo184/EK9Clone/029.jpg

http://i374.photobucket.com/albums/oo184/EK9Clone/030.jpg

So then we cut another hole to feed the cables through the floor to the trans.....i almost cryed.

http://i374.photobucket.com/albums/oo184/EK9Clone/035.jpg

Befor we put the shifter down we also made a plate to cover the hole where the stock shifter came from.
http://i374.photobucket.com/albums/oo184/EK9Clone/033.jpg

http://i374.photobucket.com/albums/oo184/EK9Clone/034.jpg

Shofter goes back on and bolted down, and cables feed through.
http://i374.photobucket.com/albums/oo184/EK9Clone/037.jpg

http://i374.photobucket.com/albums/oo184/EK9Clone/036.jpg

After we hooked up the cables to the tran's we went ahead to hook up the cable to the throttle body............but the cable was way way to long, so we had to custom make our bracket =)
If you can see in this pic of the befor then the after.

Yes, now she can move on her own, but i still have one code to get rid of, so shes not done yet, just a small step.

After that we tested fited the Apexi N1.

I know what your saying,but this is our first J Series build.....so we dont know whats involved in this swap.
But when the car is up and running the way we like it, then its being striped to the bear bone and sparyed.
And we are thinking of going turbo.....or twin.

Well the motor sits a little to foward yes, so this is no way in hell of a track car, but is will be one hell of off the line car:D
And for the money, im up to $5,000....so its not all that bad..........well i think.

Another bad pic, i was trying to get my CTR door pan, e-brake delete, and e-bake handle.

http://i374.photobucket.com/albums/oo184/EK9Clone/021.jpg
Now...this is a very ruff proto of my relay switch for my Auto ECU.
What this does is, the car shifts through the gears, but the ECU is thinking its a Auto while its a 6 speed, so it throws up codes, this chip makes it think the auto trans is there and working well.

http://i374.photobucket.com/albums/oo184/EK9Clone/020.jpg

As you can se the rebar of the CTR dosnt touch the rear bumprer, so if i get hit in the rear end.......its going to hurt, bad.

The exhaust is touching the bumper cover a bit, nothing a little triming cant fix, but on the plus side, the CTR lip fits nice.

this hood came off my last purple ej6 after someone wrecked it. It came from Ground Design's 2000.....i dont think they are in business any more. Anywho, we were going to take my old OEM hood and cut it up, but when we started looking at this hood i was about to throw out, we thought we will play with this first. And its all fiberglass....so its easy to work with.

Now, i forgot i even had this kit Its called Korbach........frame locks. This is to keep the front bumper from twisting when going into a turn. So since the bumper was off i throw it on.

The hood.........i know im going to get a lot of crap about this, so.....my friend and i talked about what and how this thing will look like, after we talked we made up our mind.
The final product will be up next week.........so at this point, this is all i am going to show you all.

We lowered the vtec, this really helped...1 and 2 gear is really point less, but when 3 hit's, it just keep's pulling, little scary.
We also placed the new JDM style carpet in, need's to be stemmed to fit better.
We also raised the rear about a inch because the tires were hitting the inner quarters.......so i broke down and bought the fender roller, so after i roll the quarters ill slam the bitch.
Now we had a prob with the car, when it sit's at a light the auto ECU thinks the car is in 3rd gear, so the car ran like carp.....we Don at RPM Systems pulled it off again, he some how fig out a way to play with ECU and TB....and now the car runs 100% better.
I also asked him to install a small amp because my wife likes to listen to her music, so with the amp and two front speak's all i have to do is hook up her Zen and turn on a red switch and the music plays.
Oh, because Honda Day is next month we are now getting the front clip and rear bumper ready for paint.

Now for the seats, i went with the cloth RSX seats, they had a set of leather but the picked the cloth.
You must be asking why, well first, i have NO A/C so sitting in this car in the heat will kill me. And the leather seats were ripped.
Now the cloth seats are mint with 20K on them.....but because these seats are in a junk car, sometimes someone forgets to close the doors. So they are a bit dirty.
But not bad for a $100.00

The new C/F hatch is now on.
1st, this hatch is sick, but with all things that dont belong, not everything is going to fit.
One side of the hatch lines up great with the pass side, driver's side sits a bit low.
The FAL window does not line up that great as well.
Where the license plate goes, there are the light above it.....dont fit.
The spot where the license plate its self.....does not line up with the holes

2nd The Spoon Sports wing, now i bought this thing almost 10 years ago, even this thing not only does not line up, and Spoon decided to use larger bolts then stick with OEM one's, but the C/F it's self looks kinda like crap, for $400.00 i thought it would have looked a little better.

Other then those little things it looks sick, OH, now since the new hatch is on, the inside it 10 times louder.

The used but new to me RSX seats are going in wednesday.

But enough with the talk, here are some pic.

Now, my brother and i were going to a car meet, my brother has the J32a2 tiptronic and crushed me.
So my friends at RPM Systems pulled my old motor + trans and we sold it as a whole kit, motor mounts and wiring...plug and play.

Then i picked this up.
We are getting the car readdy for Honda Day...

Had the engine bay painted dolphin gray.....if you want to call it that.

Had so holes filled, full brake tuck, replaced my master cylinder with a USDM ITR unit....my god what a diff in pressure.
Also had the wiring tucked under the dash.

Here are some shots.

This was the 1st time we took the car out with the new motor, and no prob's came up.

Now as far as i know, there is 1 other guy driveing around with DBW on there civic, but the only diff is that this other guy riped apart his whole wireing and made it one unit.

Mine, is all plug and play.

Well, if everything goes right in the next 2 months, i will be able to have a stock hood close.

My boy Don at RPM Systems found a way around it.

Because i have the Skunk2 Pro C set up in here, she really ride's stiff, but once we put the traction bar on, WOW she really woke up.

She really rides nice, take's turns well, braks nice.....really, i have nothing bad to say about this build.....just the intake sticking out of the hood, but that will change soon.

Just to give you some idea on the hand on a V6 civic on the track, this guy has a J32a2 6 speed with almost same set up as i do... + a roll cage

While i have the J32a3 6 speed, i have about 10 extra hp and Tq.

Oh, just watch the 355 Ferrari.

I agree HOWEVER, since you remolded the hood it actually isn't THAT bad, like before it was NASTY always have been ugly hoods... But now it's ehhh, acceptable considering....

My Question is why not run a Cervinis Cowl hood or something similar? I think that would be sick!

Man this car is CRAZY... I was with everyone about the building be half a** in the beginning but now I am blown away!!!! The one thing I would like to see improved is the location of the cables coming into the bay... I think a small sheet metal box with 2 wholes and rubber grommets would make for a NICE clean CLOSED set up under the console but thats just me :)

I am still :shock::shock::shock:

I'd love to see that car with a nearly closed, stock hood...That would be killer!

I agree HOWEVER, since you remolded the hood it actually isn't THAT bad, like before it was NASTY always have been ugly hoods... But now it's ehhh, acceptable considering....

My Question is why not run a Cervinis Cowl hood or something similar? I think that would be sick!

Man this car is CRAZY... I was with everyone about the building be half a** in the beginning but now I am blown away!!!! The one thing I would like to see improved is the location of the cables coming into the bay... I think a small sheet metal box with 2 wholes and rubber grommets would make for a NICE clean CLOSED set up under the console but thats just me :)

I am still :shock::shock::shock:

Yea, that was 1 thing i really did not want to do, but i have changed that awhile ago, i now have the Hybird shifter.

looks good man. you plan on fixing all of the rust underneath the car?

This car was kinda rushed, as of right now all she is doing is sitting in a bay collection dust, once i am happy on how she feels, the next plan will be to do a ground up restoration on her.

where are the acceleration videos?

Working 2 jobs.

I wish i could drive her more.

I hope sometime next year i could put a video up.

We are working on that, its really a tight fit.

Thanks guy.

you ever try to do the bmw "power dome" style hood? i bet it would be the clearance you needed, and we saw it on a 5th gen a couple days ago on here. looks pretty good, and not too far off stock.

This is an amazing build! I have been curious recently if it was possible to make a V6 work in an older Civic, and this pretty much answered the question. Now I want to put this in my EJ8 when I have money! Any particular reason you went with the auto ecu/tranny?
Anyways, subscribed to see what aweomeness this thing achieves.
