This is how i bought the car honestly. lol. it cost me 2500 dollars for the car. These pics were taken the day i bought it. since then its been about 4 months. since august. maybe 5 months. i cant count right lol. idk.

anyways... the lights would not pass inspection so i have pretty close if not exactly the oem lights on there. from salvage yard and bought blinkers. I haven't taken any pics with those yet but i will . I will also put up pics of the engine and under the hood soon. prolly after the snow is gone lol. couple weeks.

It had 2 exhaust leaks on it when i bought it. fixed that. I changed the oil. I need new windshield wipers and there are oil leaks. Also the anti freeze leaks under the hood. Ill show that in the pics later on.

The guy i bought it from was a complete ricer. so basically im restoring this to stock as i can get it. he seriously fucked up everything on the car. he did nothing under the hood except cai. and then put an exhaust TIP on not even full exhaust. so I am going to re do the whole car basically.

ok. well u beat me to it...
what are u planning on doing?

lol ya its mine. I have a d16z6 in it. its bad. leaks. broken seals im sure. I am droppin an ls/vtec in it. b18a1 block with type R pistons and a b16a2 head. prolly doing a megan racing exhaust gotta look more into it havent thought that much through it. T4 turbo. aem fuel rails, new intake cuz he had it sitting on a hose and its burnt and nasty looking lol. headers not sure what one yet. new transmission cuz my input shaft bearing is messed up or throwout bearing one of the two. either way. Painting it blue. changing the entire interior. I really am not digging the red/black lol. i always liked blue black.

i wouldnt buy a header if ur planning on going turbo.
ur going to need a turbo mani if u go turbo and the header will be coming out...
and when u do ur swap u will need a b series tranny so dont worry about the throwout bearing on ur z6 tranny since it wont mount up anyway..

good luck

oo! i learned something new today lol. im a noob on most of this stuff thanks for that tip about the turbo manifold lol. so ill do that. and ya wasnt even gonna touch my z6 tranny unless it was only the clutch.. might not be doing engine swap till like spring anyways i have to save money. and i work 5 hours a week for 7.25 an hour. lol. gotta save for a few months guy is givin me engine for 850 =]

if ur oil leak is all over the dizzy, then its probably a vc leak. i couldnt tell from ur pictures cuz they are pretty blurry, but if its coming from the tranny its probably the front seal. i think i remember u saying u needed a new clutch or something?
i would have the tranny rebuilt if thats the case and ur going to be in there already...

idk if ur gears are grinding or anything or if u are having any other problems, but thats a pretty common problem and a pretty simple fix...

sounds like u should be saving for a swap instead of spending money on little things...

josh_schock
12-20-2009, 09:46 PM
thats what i was doin lol going for the ls/vtec set up.

but i might not even keep my civic. i MIGHT get it fixed and sell it. or sell it as is for cheap. i am lookin at an 86 corolla or some kind of rwd drift car.
