04-27-2009, 05:51 AM
ok guys i have recently purchased a blue 89 civic dx sedan and i have plans to build it into the worlds fastes 4dr lol hahaha
my plans are as follows
instal my crx wiring harness dash and center console
build my ls vtak high comp on nitrous
carbon hood
drop zone struts and tokiko blue springs from my crx
gay ass wheels off my crx
custom harness bar
set of 4pt harnesses
instal my stereo system from my crx
build a sneaky exhaust 2 1/2" piping with no resonator and a sock looking muffler from the local autozone
then a cheap exhaust tip from autozone
also to instal my cheap ass racing seats after i get the brackets made
make it look cheap and crappy with lots of stickers to create the ricer illusion

then to just drive around a slammed beater lol and whoop ass everywhere i go hahaha

to make people go wow:shock: holy fawk that is super fast what the hell didnt see that one coming
super super sleeper style no one will know till they start hearing rumors hahaha the motor i am about to start building should have around 400hp to the wheels with nitrous but as long as im in the 300s i will be very happy hahaha and will never leave it again hahaha

what are your thoughts everyonehttp://c3.ac-images.myspacecdn.com/images02/98/l_864990805c904da195273f3ee3b9f4fe.gif

well i already got rid of the bra now i want to slam it and totally make it look like a ricer like massive window stickers and just stupid stuff on the exterior so that people think its just lowered with a louder stock looking exhaust then they will get smoked and just sit there wondering what the hell just happened i will not do a body kit but i might pick up a jdm front end for 400 bucks with everything in decent condition bumper headlights clear corners hood fenders side markers and t bar i will prolly add a crx rear bumper just to totally set of the rest of the jdm front end i hate the stock dx black crappy bumpers

also i plan on adding a sticker that goes across the top of the back window that says NO FAT CHICKS VTEC WILL LAG i think it will be hillarious hahaha

i will also eventually get some full race traction bars

but i am not going to clean it up because i want a sleeper for now i can always fix the damage and rust and repaint it since i have a paint booth in my shop hahaha

but i wanna just sleeper the hell out of it thanks for the good kind words so far anyway i will do the suspension soon along with the brakes i will post pics when i do

i am getting ready to start building a new motor for my honda

the plan is as follows

b18a bottom end which is a 1.8 li dohc im leaving stock rods and crannk using 1.6li domed pistions since the 1.8 has flat pistons with the same bore this will raise the compression slightly. then new bearings and rings wrist pins etc a civic type r oil pump and a golden eagle ls vtec kit since the 1.8li block im using is not a vtec engine. then i will use my b16 aka 1.6li head which will be port and polished with stage 3 skunk 2 cams and super tech valves, valve springs, and retainers then a hondata intake manifold gasket with an integra type r intake manifold which will be ported and port matched with my edelbrock 65mm throttlebody

then i will use a nitrous express nitrous wet kit with a 100 shot

i will run it with a p28 ecu with a full neptune
with a rywire dizzy jumper and a rywire ecu jumper harness
and obd1 b16 or gsr dizzy

i am told i should be pushing around 400 to the wheels in my ef 4door (89 civic sedan)

i will be running a lsd b16 tranny and hasport billit aluminum mounts with a dc sports 4-1 integra header also an act 7.5 pound flywheel which will so alot considering the stock flywheel is 23lbs

i would like to hear any ideas or opinions

the parts list
supertech valves and retainers
stage 3 cams of some brand that i find used for a good price that are in like new condition
port matched itr intake manifold
65 mm edelbrock throttle body only because that is what i already own
b16 pistons
stock rods and crank
fully tuned p28 ecu with neptune full dyno tune
raywire ecu jumper
reaywire dizzy jumper
0bd1 vtec dizzy
high flow cat undecided on brand yet
dc sport 4-1 integra header because they are cheap and i cant afford a hytech
act prolight 7.5 lb flywheel
stage 2 competition clutch
probably a full girdle kit if i find a good deal on one
golden eagle ls vtec kit
type r vtech solonoid
ctr or type r oil pump and water pump
gates rubber timing belt
aem adjustable cam gears
some brand of aftermarket fuel rail
my no name brand fpr
nitous express wet or fogger kit with 2o lb bottle and purge kit

Sorry to burst your bubble bud, but you aint hitting 400 lol

05-06-2009, 04:58 AM
dont be hatin lol i know i wont be at 400 but i should be mid 300s if i do the build the way it has been planned but i am thinkin about just going turbo on it and doing some forged internals and keeping my edelbrock intake mani and going with a dsm flanged turbo mani and going with a bastard 20g turbo that i can pick up for pretty cheap and then just boosting the hell out of it

the current list for the 4dr is as follows these are the parts i currently have

eibach sportline springs on dropzone struts
91 crx si rear disc conversion
ebc front cross drilled rotors
pep boys special racing seats (2)
custom harness bar is being made at the moment
custom seat rails for the racing seats in the works
carbon fiber hood

possibly a jdm front end
need to find a ex rear bumper for better looks

what you guys think

05-06-2009, 03:04 PM
Fuck turbo. Everyone doing that shit.

05-06-2009, 06:52 PM
yeah i know but i want to make lots of whp if ya know what i mean i have never done a full build and i wanna do this ls vtec w/b16 pistons because i have meticulously planned it out and it wont cost me over 2300 bucks or i would just go staight to turbo and go full build but i am pretty low income and i can build this quickly as soon as i return to work and its all i think about lately is getting my 4dr on the road kickin ass

05-17-2009, 06:32 AM
Fuck turbo. Everyone doing that shit.

yeah but how many people do it right instead of just slapping a turbo on there lol

has anyone heard of cryo treatments i have heard that if i get my crand knife edged, cryo treated and have it micro polished it would be bad ass

i also want to cryo treat the rods and the pistions and get the whole rotating assembly balanced

any thoughts?

05-23-2009, 08:04 AM
this is the current progress that i have made in the past few days (stfu im lazy lol)

old gauge cluster

new guage cluster

new eclipse head unit and tsudo shift counter whieghted shift knob

and here are the new wheels that i took off my crx YES THEY ARE retarded THANKS FOR NOTICING

yes its rusted and i dont give a f**k but here is the car before i lower it next week

and here are the cheap ass race seats that will make their way into the car once i fab up some brackets

here is the bay after a front strut bar and yes i know that my intake is not fastend down it is a cai but i just placed it in for fitment

the new plan for the motor is a d15block with a d16a6 head (fully built minus valve job) turbo

and while that is being built i will run my b16 in it which will be fun but single slammer turbo will also be a blast lol

i will add more pictures next week when it gets lowered and i put the rear disc brakes on

05-23-2009, 08:06 AM
here are some pics of the front suspension that will make its way onto the sedan (no they are not new they are from my hatch)

before cleaning

after cleaning (only a light one to get the grease off)

eibach baby hell yeah

yea man, i so like this idea. i would be so pissed to get wasted by that.haha

05-23-2009, 08:50 AM
that is pricisly my goal is the wtf holy shit thats fast i didnt see that coming

i cant decide between 3 different motor options lol i just cant
#1 rebuild my b16 new rings, bearings, etc and have it port and polished
#2 build a high comp ls vtec and spray it
#3 build a d15 with d16 head fully built and boost it <this is what im leaning towards the most right now

what do yall think

05-23-2009, 10:22 AM
#3 sounds fun haha. Why not build a low comp ls vtec and boost that shit?

05-23-2009, 04:06 PM
i though about that too
#3 would use b16 pistons instead of ls therefore raising the compresion from 9-2-1 to 10-2-1 which isnt really high compression but it is higher im one of those guys that use what they got laying around first before going out and buing shit

that is why i think the d15 with a d16z6 head will be better cuz i know that forged pistons for a d series are cheaper that for a b series

if anyone could post some sites where cheap forged pistons and rods can be found hit me up with the url thanks everyone

05-30-2009, 06:48 PM
Damn I wish I could see the pics!

05-30-2009, 08:01 PM
EF huh? Is that rhd? if not, I'm sorry to tell you but it's not an EF.

Sound familiar?

05-30-2009, 08:06 PM
okay time for some new pics
here is the new wheel lol

here is the good side of the car after the fron suspension not much different but it is much better than stock almost no understeer when taking tight turns lo

the next move is to do the rear disc conversion and rear suspension but i have felt lazy this week so i am taking my time lol

05-30-2009, 08:10 PM
no its not an actual ef but 98% of people refer to them as ef's it is an ee so if thats all you got to say then gtfo lol jk i am thinking about doing the rhd conversion because my friend wants to sell one to me for 6oo it came off his sir hatch but i havent decided if i want to do it or not rhd is cool but

06-04-2009, 01:01 PM
just buy his sir hatch xD jk.

06-04-2009, 03:08 PM

06-20-2009, 01:39 AM
well 4bangincivic tell me what you need i might alredy have it
considering i just finished parting out my 90 hatch and i have some things left that i need gone

i will also begine parting out whats left of my crx si very soon

i need the ashtray on the back of the middle console, and all the seats if you still have them, sorry for the late response. Plus anything else i'll take it all gladly, i'm trying to get a backup part for everything lol just incase!

06-21-2009, 06:59 AM
that is pricisly my goal is the wtf holy shit thats fast i didnt see that coming

i cant decide between 3 different motor options lol i just cant

#2 build a high comp ls vtec and spray it
#3 build a d15 with d16 head fully built and boost it <this is what im leaning towards the most right now

what do yall think

i think you should put an LS vtec and build up its internals, then putting some boost to it.
thats what my plans are.. seams like a nice idea.

06-24-2009, 07:03 PM
i am doing b20 vtec fawk ls vtec i want tourqe lol

pm me all of what ur lookin for 4banger

you should get one i love my black and blue beater lol

07-22-2009, 09:09 PM

well i finally got the dash clock in there lol

07-29-2009, 04:45 PM
well ive been working on the rear suspension for awhile and ran into problems with the rear passenger side lower strut bolt and ended up destroying the lca bushing and the bolt so now im just going to get a new trailing arm, lca, drum assembly from the junk yard

but here is the suspension im putting on its of my hatch eibach springs with dropzone struts


and here is what happened with the strut (its upside down btw)


and here is the lx trunk lid i just bough


and here it is after putting it on and swapping the lock


except for a few scratches and one small dent the trunk is in great condition
and the fact that the paint color is just a lil off but i dont care much since i am going to paint the car after i get all the rust fixed

im also getting the hood, fender, and bumper off the same car in great condition

08-06-2009, 01:42 PM
coming together eh? i like it- i hope u decide on your motor issue first. Go bseries- i think u might be happier with it in the end.

but to each his own.

08-09-2009, 09:06 PM
get some rims lower it and put in a b and your golden

08-10-2009, 08:58 AM
personally i think putting anything over 40bux into a car thats worth 700 is pointless, to each i his own i guess, if ur gnna go big-then go big, if your going to toss around ideas of b-this and d-that then do it, just keep in mind that your average turbo d series gets walked on by b series with minor bolt ons, and nitrous setups tend to put a hurtin on a motor regaurdless of whats done t it, do a sleeved b20, low compression pistons and some sick rods, fatty head gasket, arp studs, and a worked head. bigger fuel pump, huge injectors, a legit turbo kit and a tune on meth. but after all that a stock K series will be only a second and a half slower then that. so you can see where im going with that, also if ur going to be making this car descently fast why not make it look real nice, its not everyday u see a nice ED yes i said ED sedan that looks fresh, mos people just buy them and fuck them up, i think a fresh paintjob of the stock color would look nice maybe some descent rims, SI's or swirlies. im not putting you down by no means bc everyone has their thing, just ossing some ideas at you man!good luck!

08-11-2009, 08:13 PM
well after i pass smog im going to drop my b16 in while i build another motor
im thinking ls vtec sleeved with eagle rods, wiseco forged 20 over pistons, a p&p head and a full valvetrain upgrade with a dsm flanged turbo manifold with a evo 3 turbo for starters and some 1000cc injectors and a sequential bov and a huge fmic lol

im going to do the bodywork after i get back to work and finish the lx shit that im putting on and then repaint it the dx baby blue and then procede to beat the fuck out of it on a daily basis lol
i would like some clear corners but that will happen after i go back to work at the end of the month lol

and a nice quiet exhaust

its already lowered on eibach springs and dropzone struts

and its starting to come together i just need to get back to work and it should all happen pretty quickly

08-11-2009, 08:23 PM
and yes i know its and ed same as my crx and my hatch lol
