my rwd crx project CRX2000!
« on: March 07, 2009, 01:22:03 PM »

i can't update the "other forum" thread because i've been banned.  oh well.

slightly modified, but all the pics are here.

ok, i've been working on this for a couple years.  i only recently got all 4 wheels back on the car (temporarily so i can move the car because i'm moving shop).  i will update with more detailed pics once things become more permanent.

here is where i started.  1989 crx si that i've owned for 12 years.  2000 ap1 f20c.  s14 jdm rear end with viscous type lsd.  when i bought the drivetrain, it came with the rear end complete, except for the subframe.  i'd researched that the stock s2000 rear ends were not that happy being abused so i was able to sell it all and get the s14 complete rear end for 2/3rds what i sold the s2000 rear for.  more money for the project.



i already had a dh-racing tb so i figured i'd bore the intake for it.





before cutting





after preliminary cutting






some powdercoating



test fitting the engine/tranny








engine is mounted, but still need a tranny mount




turbo manifold started




rear end tacked in place



rear suspension started







it is now on the ground for the first time in almost 2 years


i haven't had a chance to take any recent pics because i'm moving my shop, but once everything is moved i'll get some more pics up.

right now the car is together, because i had to move my shop and put 4 wheels on it to move the car along with everything else.  the engine and rear end are coming out probably early next week so i can use them for an upcoming show i have a booth at.

the rear suspension needs some adjustment because some of my measurements were off, but nothing serious.  also, i'm trying to source some softer springs because the current springs are far too stiff (700lb/in).  i'm looking for something in the 200 range.

You ever check out speedwaymotors as they've got a boatload of different lengths and rates of springs. Maybe they might or maybe not but it's worth a check.

in itself, that is the cleanest CRX I've ever seen.  RWD turbo f20 is a shit ton of icing on the cake.  Good luck with getting this thing going!

aaron you can adjust the cantilever ratio to soften your springs..

i was thinking that too, right now it looks like hes at 1:1 ratio. aarron go take a physics lesson

I think all cop cars need to have turbo.  Then they would understand the necessity of putting your foot down and how uncontrollable the urge is to fucking rail on that shit.

Awesome project. Can't wait to see it run.

  i'd researched that the stock s2000 rear ends were not that happy being abused...


They indeed do not. They're made of very fine glass:





The top chunk is the cap. The rest are pinion teeth.

the problem here is that there is not enough stroke in the shock assembly.  i've done some reading (not enough) and i don't think you will be doing much more than changing the travel of the suspension rather than change the spring rate.

for the most part, the car is going to be a street car.  it may evolve into something over time, but once it is complete, i just want to drive it and get re-familiarized with the car.

here are some shots detailing the cross member/subframe and the bottom link steering.

i don't remember what size bolts it is, but just 2 washers and a big nut/bolt will do the trick on each side...

Other than the LS chevelle, this is my favorite build.

Good quality work.
