Hey all, been wanting to start this thing for awhile
My car is a 2000 VSM Civic ex coupe
I'm currently running the d15b and a few months ago picked up a complete b18b1 swap for 175 and most recently picked up a jdm b16a head and jdm b16 lsd trans with all bout 70k on it for 700. So thats 875 bucks for a full swap, not too bad if you ask me

I hope to have the ls/vtec in by the next week or so and by next spring/summer i hope to be boosting it with a t3/t4 .57 trim turbo kit
Pics of head and trans on second to last page of my build thread

Ok...So heres some pics of my cars transformation over the past couple years.
It anit much but figured id start one since im droppin a new motor in soon

Heres the oldest shot that i have of my car bout 2 years ago

http://i462.photobucket.com/albums/qq348/Kyle8898/CopyofFront.jpg

I tried these Evil auto style gauges bout a year back, the things were cool as hell but not very accurate and now just rocking a crv cluster, btw got another one up for sale if anyone interested

Was in a rear end accident and got a new Thermal R&D exhaust outta it if you can even tell

thanks, yeah i wasnt sure what to hear from people with the black hood but i mean i bought it new for 60 and i put it on and liked how it looked like that. And yeah fogs are in the process and lip maybe in a month or 2

paint the hood.

what springs are you using? seems like it's sitting too high in the front.

paint the hood.

what springs are you using? seems like it's sitting too high in the front.

Thanks for the opinion but im leaving the hood black, its only a temporary anyway till i get a carbon fiber trunk and hood.
And no its sitting where it should be, 2" anit that much and it is sitting a tad higher in the front because my system in the back is weighing it down a bit in the rear. So once i sell it the height will be even around

I also put in my thread what springs i was using but im using tokico springs and struts in front and rear

lol yeah i do and even still with the 3 stage vtec solenoid
This motors pretty impressive too in the way it runs. Its got some kick to it for a single cam and a 1.5 at that
But i got it from an import site. Heres their site
http://sunrisejdmmotors.com/engine_details.php?id=20&page=2
They seem to be outta stock tho. Im actually doing an ls/vtec swap soon or at least the ls side of it, if you still want one ill sell ya the motor if you still need one. These things are hard as hell to find tho

lol, yeah i mostly put them up there to show that my car had ricey crap on it but those later pics are to show that i hate rice and im more about the clean look, lol
Yeah my car does sit a tad higher in the front and i dont like it but the whole suspension with strut bars was 150. Plus my car would be sitting more even once i sell the system in my trunk. Its supposed to sit even 2" around. But i figure ill wait before i do anything else and save for coilovers.
But thanks man

Also UPDATE:
Just ordered Type R headlights today and pretty excited, they should be in by next friday, ill post pics when they come in

aye, they're quite the rarity!! kudos for not only finding such a great engine, but also running it! i mean, 128hp from a 1.5L comes out to a whopping 85.3hp per liter, which is pretty damn impressive for a 4cyl SOHC engine!

my buddy picked up a b18c3, so i dunno if he wants the 3-stage d15b still or not. i will ask him for ya though.

thanks man, yeah if i cant find the right guy to take it im just gonna hold onto it for a second engine incase something happens to my ls. I am gonna be kinda sad tho that ill be going back to usdm cause it was kinda cool actually running a legit and rare ass jdm motor, lol.
And damn a b18c3, thats gotta be pretty rare too, is it like the b18c1's over here?
Thanks tho for the compliments

Hey thanks man, yeah its starting to turn into something nice now.
As for my strut bars i got em all in a deal with my suspension.
The one is oem and the other is by a company called bys. I also have a rear one and it really made a difference
Theres a few cars at the junkyard that has em i could always pick one up for ya and ship it if you wanted? Just let me know

These things are cooler then i thought
During the day they look normal but in different light they change colors
When its dark they look completely smoked out, and the light output is amazing too
What you guys all think??

Haha, ok gotcha. Yeah they were a nice pick up at autozone. And the really cool thing is they like my new lights take the effect of the actual light outside. In certain light they look blue, silver, or even green. And my new headlights are either dark chrome, gunmetal, or black depending on the light, these things are pretty awesome, lol

lights look sick! time for some sidemarkers lol
Thanks man, yeah i love em. One of the best upgrades i did, ha
As for sidemarkers....i totally agree and want to do them so bad but i gotta figure out how to do them, you seemed to do a great job on yours, maybe i might just have to make the drive to get you to help me or convince my friend to do them, haha

Your car looks 2934293847298 times better with those kick ass head lights and that hood!!!
I say you take off that strut tower bar and sell it to some 16 year old fanboy and leave the Si one on. It looks best!


How much are you looking to get for that CRV cluster? Hit me up on AIM im interested. The miles in my GF's cluster needs to magically drop 0.0

Thanks for the compliments dude. Yeah im loving my car, its really been getting some praise for what its turning into and i just love how im actually doing all this stuff for cheap yet its making the car look so good.
Yeah i do love these headlights, lol
But as for the strut tower bar, i do plan on upgrading but i got them included with my deal for the Tokico struts and spring. Its a set and came with a rear one also so idk if that would effect how the car handled any different or not. I figured when i do upgrade tho i can probably sell them to some ricer for maybe 150 bucks, lol

I actually have 2 crv clusters for sale but im trying to get at least 90 for the one with having low miles on it and 75-80 for the other one over 100k
If you need the miles rolled to zero tho i can do that for you too. Just did it on mine today to match the miles on the body of my car. But yeah just let me know
I was just gonna throw em both up on ebay for sale but yeah ill hit you up on aim later today

Well thats cool, but your assuming and most the time people who assume are wrong
The hood is not primered at all actually. Its a brand new hood and this is the coating color it came in. I needed a new hood and if you actually looked over my thread you woulda saw the hood i had on it there before hand. Maybe just maybe i put it on there and i haven't painted it yet because of funds. Or hey heres a weird idea, maybe i just liked the look of a black hood and decided to keep it that way. I dont recall saying anywhere that i primered it black to give it a carbon fiber look. But thanks for being farther from the truth and being a jackass. I guess you couldnt ask why i left it black or something like that But if all you got to say is negative shit stay outta my thread and keep it to yourself

Thanks dude. Yeah i love em. They too have great light output and its kinda cool seeing a sign light up blue and yellow. Altho im toying with the idea of putting led bulbs in there to keep the heat down.
And to answer your question im running 10,000k HID's
They do have great light output but damn they had too much, i actually had to angle the beams down because they were too bright, lol

I would prioritize painting the hood.

I would prioritize painting the hood.

Why? When im so close to swapping in a new motor would i waste 200 to paint the hood?
I need 4 more parts then its time for b series. The hood is one of the last things im worried about because it dont even look bad. I could see it if it was like blue or something but i got more important stuff to do like upgrading to an si front sway bar when the motor is pulled and things like that then me having a black hood that may give a false sense of it being "carbon fiber" The car needs repainting in sections and body work in other so why waste 200 bucks on the hood now when i can get the whole car sprayed at once for a grand?

Yes it does look pretty bad, might as well throw in an unpainted lip. Honestly I'd rather drive a slow decent looking car than a little less than slow mismatched piece of shit.

Honestly i could care less of your opinion. As i stated before I'm more worried about getting my swap done. Maybe your all about the all show no good thing but I'm not. And why would i throw an unpainted lip on my car? There's a reason i don't have a lip on my car. And if you actually had read my posts except for seeing the pictures and blabbering your bullshit that i don't give 2 shits about, you would of saw that i needed a new hood and i bought it new like this. The hood isn't painted so don't assume, it makes you look like an ass. And last i checked carbon fiber gives off a similar look. Based on your assumptions i guess carbon fiber is shit too since it tech is mismatching from the color of the car.
Now as i stated im doing the motor swap first and that's my decision and im not gonna let someone who thinks hes a know it all change my mind. If you dont like what you see then stay out of my build thread and keep your bullshit to yourself.

But im also not gonna sit here and let you call my car a piece of shit with all the time money and sweat and blood i've put into it. Of course im gonna say something back. And well if you cant understand that my importance is my ls/vtec turbo going in then sorry. But as i also stated that you must of not been able to see is that im not wasting anymore money on the body until after i get the motor finished and the whole car is gonna be fixed body and paint

Dude you just were saying in your other thread how my car looked weak and was a pos...Now your complementing it?

Thanks for the comments i guess but seriously dude if your gonna stick around here you need to learn how to take some constructive criticism like what i was telling you. I was only trying to help but i also have short patience when someone is gonna try and call me out on something stupid mainly when i knew i was right and have a little bit more car knowledge then you do.

Now back to your questions...I'm probably not gonna de-badge anymore of my car. IMO no need for it. The Honda emblem when removed leaves 2 holes and id rather have it say Honda then nothing with 2 holes where the badge used to be. And i moved where civic is supposed to sit and kinda like it like it sits, thanks for suggestions tho. I already changed out front grill so it no longer says Honda up there at least. Hood is just primer, i havent had the time to paint it and needed a new hood.
I probably wont do the carbon fiber trunk just cause they dont always line up, leak, crack or fade
Pics of fogs are up on either page 3 or 4 but if you know wiring you wont have any issues. To me it was a 1-10 on difficulty level. Its all mostly plug and play and hide the wires as best as possible.

I said it to destroy ill say it to you, lol, hood hasnt been painted, thus its in primored state. You look up in my thread my other hood that was off a 96-98 civic. Brand new hood for 50 bucks is a steal and when i get time to paint hood it will be painted. Read a bit you will see that this is just a temporary thing. As i just said i just got a hell of a deal on a bunch of b series stuff and my car going faster is more important to me then a painted hood. Unless of course you wanna give me the 200 it take to paint my hood? lol

Lol thats what im saying, idk either. But hey idc cause ill be the one with the quick car :D But honestly it doesnt even look that bad, it look very similar if i had a carbon fiber hood

As for the motor, im getting the head back from machine shop this weekend and ls shortblock is already together waiting for head.
Yeah ill tell ya price cause i love listing it, lol
Complete b18b1 longblock with bout 90k on it minus tb and dizzy:$170
Complete Jdm b16a head and jdm b16 lsd trans with bout 70k on them:$700
That trans alone is probably worth 800 so im happy, lol
But yeah between rear t bracket and side engine bracket and mounts im a little under a grand right now so i personally think i made some damn good deals, lol, and my buddy and i worked out a deal that he will buy me rest of parts and in return ill give him my jdm d15b swap.

We seriously looked for like 2 hours trying to find it and no luck so now i gotta order another one and honda said at best they can get it in by saturday so pretty much not really anything is gonna happen tomorrow.

Well new motor is in and runs pretty decent. Since its an ls/vtec it still needs alot of work tuning it as it breaks up and needs better fuel maps and curves in vtec as right now vtec just is a noise maker. Then again it hates the jdm p30 ecu and i really dont have another computer to run on it then my buddies hondata s100 but that has a type r basemap. So pretty much it needs better tuning and needs an obd1 throttle body as the fast idle valve on the obd0 tb is messing something up as randomly it will stall when the clutch is pushed in. But the good news is i ran a tc tonight and pulled about car car and a half so it should be a fun car.

Car isnt bad without power steering at all but unfortunately solid mounts are over time gonna take a beating on the car. Dash rattle is pretty bad but hey its what i get i guess, lol.
Ill try and get pics up tomorrow but i cant guarantee. Ill also try and get a vid or 2 up to show what it has but overall im happy with the ls/vtec swap

Working on fixing some kinks out of the car tomorrow, got some dash rattle as was expected with solid mounts but not really all that bad. The rattles can be fixed. Car stalls almost always coming to a stop which i believe is cause of the shitty fast idle valve but were gonna take care of that along with switching to Honda mtf and tracing the leak in the coolant system. Probably either next week or week after that i will get a basemap tune for this thing and then i hope by Christmas time i will be fully tuned.
Then probably next week or week after that im going back to my stock valve cover which is already red, it was being hot tanked so this one im borrowing from a friend. Overall tho im really happy with the swap. Its a fun car now

But as for the strut tower bar, i do plan on upgrading but i got them included with my deal for the Tokico struts and spring. Its a set and came with a rear one also so idk if that would effect how the car handled any different or not.

I actually have 2 crv clusters for sale but im trying to get at least 90 for the one with having low miles on it and 75-80 for the other one over 100k
If you need the miles rolled to zero tho i can do that for you too. Just did it on mine today to match the miles on the body of my car. But yeah just let me know

Well turns out my bad news went to worse news. What originally turned out to be a head gasket wound up being much worse. My head gasket was never bad but what DID happen was 5 of my 10 head bolts stripped out of my perfectly running short block thus allowing me to lose my compression have oil run down the front of my block and allow coolant to pass over my cylinders acting as a head gasket issue. So yeah the short block itself is fine only the head bolt threads are ripped out of the block, so im pretty pissed but i mean it is what it is. All that was supposed to happen was new tranny and head gasket so tech i never got to enjoy my swap yet not having 3rd gear prior.

So now tho im doing it right and better then before.
Instead of using stock pr4 pistons i just ordered p30 pistons new acl bearings and nippon rings. Im looking for a compression of around 11:5.1-11:7.1 and then just gonna use the same head as thats ok still. Eventually tho i plan on adding some nice stage 2 or 3 Brian Crower cams and having the motor degree'd. Im hoping to get in the end between 250-260whp but we will see.
I figure if my old setup made 193 152 it shouldnt be too hard, lol
If any questions just ask, im sure i forgot some details

Let me correct myself. I somehow missed your B16 lsd tranny. When you installed your new engine and transmission, did u have any adjustments made to the gearing ratio or was it a perfect match? What was tuned, how much did the labor cost? Any advice on picking a tuner? Thx
PS. How did u find a B18B1 so cheap? Only $175?

Lots of questions, lol
Um im not really sure what you mean when you say if i had adjustments done to the gearing unless you mean like combination of different b series gears? But to answer your question i kept my b16 stock because i loved how short the gearing is.
The only thing that can be tuned is the motor and thats what i had dynotuned
i didnt pay for labor cause my friend and i put the motor in. Tuning costed 300 tho and my tuner is jk tuning in carlisle pa. I cant really give advice on who to choose other then choose some1 that you hear good things from. Thats why i went with inovative motorworks at jk tuning to tune my car
I found a b18b1 swap so cheap at a local junkyard that just has good prices and i bargained with the lady at the front desk down from the 200 she originally wanted to charge me.
Sorry i cant better answer your questions its just your questions were kinda vague

thanks, yeah it does suck but it is what it is. I figure if that swap was that much fun and put down that much power with ls pistons then it should be even more fun with jdm b16 pistons. My compression should be over 12.1:1

I was rolling through 6 inches of snow in maryland saturday night in my civic. no way you got too much snow to drive in anywhere in south central pa. maybe if you would get stuck in the snow it would rip those retarded hub caps off.

Nice car though!

You were driving on roads tho. Not on a slick hill which is now muddy as hell with the melting snow and current rain we are getting. Trust me i just put together a high compression ls/vtec, you dont think id wanna drive it some? And the hubs are staying till i get some decent wheels, rolling straight steelies looks retarded and cheap
Thanks tho

All you said was you got snowed in. If you would have been a little more specific maybe there would have been no confusion.

and hubcaps makes it look like you just got done shopping in the automotive department at Wal*Mart.

no one else had a problem understanding but you.
And honestly i could care less about your opinion...There stock hubs and until i get some si wheels there staying put, you rock your shitty rusty looking steelies and ill keep my car decent looking with hubs. Im perfectly content with them cause in all honesty people are gonna recognize my car moving fast then the fact i havent worried about getting wheels

This makes no sense. You clearly dont have intelligence
Maybe you should just quit while your ahead

Who said anything about being ashamed? If you could read you would see that i said it looks cheap and im not doing it. Get over it or get out. Car company's made hub caps to begin with to cover up that fact that steel wheels looks like shit. Your speaking like a true ricer. Dont tell me your car is all riced to shit? And btw keep it out my build thread. You made your point now i dont care so go bother someone else who cares

your still posting in my thread? You really dont have anything better to do...do you?
I said previously that i DID NOT have a camera, unlike some people here i am not an idiot. I know damn well how to upload pics. And you blabbering about reusing head bolts makes no sense what so ever...
Im glad you further proved my point that your illiterate. Good thing im not even using head bolts. If you knew anything you would know that to do it right you use head studs in high compression or boosted setups. You wouldnt know anything about that

pics now!!!!!!!!!

Im trying dude i swear i am, lol
I gotta find a camera to borrow. Wanna lend me yours? lol

I can post wherever I want. I am sorry I didn't catch the part about you not having a camera. And I heard a rumor(or the truth?) about you reusing head bolts or head studs and they stretched... and you used some cheap ebay gasket...and something about oil laying on top your pistons at Sheetz one night when you where checking your spark plugs.

If I am wrong just say so and I'll drop it.

First off who are you? You act as if you know me and i dont know you.....
Secondly wherever you got your info they are wrong so people need to stop running their mouth about stuff they know nothing about. Head studs dont stretch first off. Im not going to explain myself about something that happened now over a month ago and mainly when i dont even know who you are and the only way you found out anything was by word of mouth and the story you were told wasnt even close to what happened other then that night i was checking my spark plugs. So yes drop it.....
