well.... I figured I would get my build thread going, even though it'll be a slow build.

car: 1995 civic dx hatch
body milage: 180,000
what was done to it when I got it:
full cat-back exhaust (unknown brand), jg header, cold air intake (unknown brand, prob ebay), different gauge face.
motor: d15b7 (burned oil like a mofo)

things I've done so far:
took cold air intake off, and switched for stock airbox. swapped cluster for ex cluster. put on oem honda lip (for shits an giggles). replaced motor for a d16z6, temporarily so i don't have to keep dumping oil in it every half day.

THE PLANS:
motor/trans:
- usdm H22A1 swap
- h2b kit
- either a gsr, or ls tranny
- lsd kit for tranny
- boost duh. (still doing research on what I want and shooting for)
- dart mid sleeves
- crower 2.5l stroker kit
- different intake mani, haven't looked yet....
- external oiling, or shortened oil pan.

EXTERIOR:
- spoon lip
- spoon duck bill
- c/f oem hood (maybe still undecided)
- rota slips, flat black
- dropped bout an inch an half, tokicos with h&r springs
- taking care of the little rust it has now
- respraying the car pearl white
- jdm head lights/corners
- jdm fenders
- replace hatch glass, again
- rear disc conversion
- tower an lower bars

INTERIOR:
- replace front seats, with what...idk yet....
- changing the interior color to black (using connies write up)
- replace carpet
- replace broken cup holder
- replace shift boot with red stitched black one
- block off radio opening (I don't listen to it anyways)

well that's about it kiddies, besides the little things I didn't want to write and are the ovious.

Looks like a lot of work ahead of you. You should definitely drop it more than an inch and a half...
I say shoot for 300+ whp and make it a fun build for us to watch =D

Nah...i don't wanna drop it anymore than what's needed to close fender gap above the wheels. as of power...i was shooting for 350-400 max. which is alot...but I figured tune it for track (drag) at 400, then turn it back to 350 for dd.

either way, shell be a fun lil bitch

wow...its been a while...lol. sorry its takin so long. but shortly after i made this thread we found out my mom had stage 4 cancer....so i was dealing with that from may last year (when we found out...she passed in july the same year) to bout may this year (mainly dealing with her bad debts and so on). so not much has progressed altho the outside of my car has seen a major change in the past week....

getting rid of all the small little dings and dents that couldnt be pounded out

I see a FMIC.. is this thing done and running?
Did you get rid of the rust on the rear quarters or just say "eff it" and paint over it cause the progress pics look like you didn't fix it..
