Post by: crxvtec91 on May 14, 2009, 03:12:03 PM
Ok so I will slowly post up the history of my crx.

As of 06/28/2005:

the z6 blew n/a.Long story short happened last wednesday when it was raining like crazy, goes through a huge pothole that is up to level with the hood which is unavoidable, water goes in and pics speak for themselves.
Opens hood to find this :shocked:

Four cylinders are over-rated.  Three is underdog and the only way to go.

Then came this in: 08/26/06

since last time i posted i went through 2 mini-me's, the d16a6 minime blew up due to oil pump messing up sorry no pics, and the d15b8 minime piston rings was shot in the beginning and lasted 2 weeks of taking it 8200 rpm with the obd0-obd1 conversion running uberdata gsr maps. After the 2 dead minime's i decided on getting the jdm zc vtec. id must admit that the zc pulled harder stock than my z6. After a few months of daily driving and ripping hard it started becoming slow, so i decided to boost it.

setup

While I was at it I also did a full wire tuck;

Let the pic whoring begin lol.

You will notice that I am removing the dash because I will be routing all the sensor wires through *Drum rolls* the speedo hole.
(http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m223/preludevtec95/interiorstripped.jpg)

Cleaned up the e-bay by pulling the wire looms on both sides inside, as well as spraying a bunch of purple power to get rid of all the grease and oil that was caked on over the years. It will also be painted and will take pics of the end result.:)
(http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m223/preludevtec95/e-baycleanedup.jpg)

My bro cleaning up the last bit of it...
(http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m223/preludevtec95/cleaningupsidefrontofebay.jpg)

I will have more pics tomorrow of the mounts that just arrived yesterday.:TU:



)4/14/08
Here are the mounts. I should probably be installing it maybe this weekend once my e-bay gets painted.:TU:
(http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m223/preludevtec95/inovativemounts.jpg)

05/23/08;
Update: I got through with tucking the drivers side but don't have any pics because I can't find my camera, I know I failed. Although I do have some pics of how the e-bay turned out with the new paint before the tuck.:TU:

Here is how my interior is looking which is a mess
(http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m223/preludevtec95/Dashtakenout.jpg)

I still have to get the passenger side tuck, followed by sending the sensor plugs with wires through the speedo hole. That will be for another day.



05/24/08;
Well as requested I finally found my camera and here are the pics.:TU:

(http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m223/preludevtec95/e-baywithlsvtak2.jpg)

What is left is to tuck the passenger side and pass the engine bay harness sensor plugs through speedo hole which I will be doing tomorrow. Then put the whole interior back together.


06/01/08;
Ahh if so then I will take it back, and will upload a pic of what I did yesterday and here it is....

(http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m223/preludevtec95/enginewiringinspeedohole.jpg)

As you can see all the sensor plugs for the engine is going through the speedo hole. I will be looming it there and separating some of the sensors into mini looms.

06/06/08;

Passenger side tucked.

Well that is about it for the moment and the only thing that I need to extend is the injector wiring, put the dashboard in, and then start up......


06/21/08;
Well here are some pics of what I was upto the other day.....

The dash is finally in.....
(http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m223/preludevtec95/dashboardin.jpg)

Hmm I haven't posted about this but here goes. Not long ago I had traded my b16 lsd transmission for a gsr with obx lsd on it. Well the guy puts in b16 lsd and not putting the synchromesh in it, he was saying that whenever he turned it was clunking. So I ended up going to nyc to helping out the guy take my old b16 transmission and putting on the gsr one in. That night ended with the gsr transmission working flawlessly.

The next day, I decided to pull apart my b16 transmission to inspect it to see if anything was wrong. To my surprisement the transmission look perfect, it didn't even had metal shavings on the magnet. I proceeded to take out the differential to see what was wrong with it. As I pulled it out, to my complete amazement I found this.
(http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m223/preludevtec95/spoonlsd.jpg)

(http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m223/preludevtec95/spoonlsd2.jpg)

I know it is kinda hard to see it but that is a true spoon lsd with final drive. Bone I know you already seen it so keep quiet lol;) Reading up throughout all the different forums I came to realize that the piss thin mtf was the culprit; as a complete teardown of the spoon lsd was in good shape. Well enjoy some more pic's of me putting the trans back together; oh and my crx workbench.

Well I will probably be finishing up soon, just have to put the suspension back together.

08/02/08;
Update: Well it's time I show pics of how the tuck turned out and a teaser pic of how the crx is currently lol.

Wire tuck.:D

(http://i105.photobucket.com/albums/m223/preludevtec95/currentstateofrex.jpg)

So there it is and if you can tell there are no timing covers on it but will be installing it shortly as well as a new water pump........

SHE IS DEAD!!!! Update: On 3/27/09 I went to e-town to make 2 passes of 17.1 on drag radials (i know wtf). Yes I was preloading and launching at 8k. Both passes were under .200 for a reaction time with a 60 ft of 2.2. Decided not to make a 3rd pass as it was running kinda iffy. As I started to head back, halfway through the turnpike it started making a small ticking sound. Temp shoots up, oil light and cel comes on only for it to knock very loud. Two seconds later it shuts off on the highway so I decided to pull over. Tried to start it with no luck and even push starting didn't help. Sounds like a spun bearing and possibly seized it.

That did it for me as I'm now selling the crx shell and any parts with it and will make a fs thread soon. Now as I mention on the previous post I have a new project in the works. 91 toyota cressida with a blown auto 7mge that I will be swapping out for a 1uz v8 that I bought for a steal. Also I will be converting it to a 5 speed as well.:) Coming soon there is another honda project in the works so stay tuned.........











05/03/09;
Update to my 04-05-2009 update. When I blew the motor I was so piss I was about to quit and let everything go, in a since I could not. To many years, to much fun, to much joy has led me up unitl now. I started by pulling the fail boat B-series out in favor of a better setup. The all mighty D!!!! Yes thats right I said F the B and hello to my old good friend the D, as rhmt would put it FABLAD(Fuck A B Love a D).

So the build has started, last week I spent a nice about of money with fjt, so I should have some pic's soon. Its going to be a z6 with my hx-35. Going to build my own header for it using a ebay 4-1 n/a header, manifold will have 2 waste gates to take full use of the twin scroll.

For this year my only 2 goals is 300hp+ and to run a better then a 17's pass lol.

Stay tuned more WILL come!

Should of organized your spark plug wires better after the tuck.
Good job though, now just hope that you didn't fuck up any wires when putting them together.

After seeing your vitara record thread I'm glad you stickied you own build thread.

Either I miss something or I'm blind but I did not see a setup detail of your vitara build.

Haha no vitara record is not mine, I wish it was :yes:

My setup for my build will be;
top mount mani
Hx-35
Ported z6 intake mani/ spacer/ 74mm tb
I am going to run a zex cam but maybe next year.

As of right now I am still gathering parts, thats why I have not updated my build because I really don't have much right now but a pile of parts.

Throttle body is a 74mm inlet tapers down to a 68mm plate



Spacer is a 70mm inlet tapered down to 65mm. The reason the spacer is 70mm is to not allow reversion to occur since most people will only port match to a throttle body size. There is too much play in bolting on a throttle body and you will always have the throttle body backside overlapping at some point.


The manifold is ported out to 65mm plenum the largest you can go before you crush into the iacv port. Thats is pretty clear when you look at the picture.


Also all Honda throttle body/manifolds from the factory come with a 2mm larger manifold opening vs the throttle plate size


For example:
b18b1 manifold has a 62mm opening but only a 60mm throttle body. This concept was transfered to my spacer since oem manifolds/aftermarket can only be opened up so large due to lack of material and also IACV ports


Essentially if your only gasket matching to the throttle body size on the manifold your doing it wrong. Honda knows what their doing just follow their lead.

whats a skunk2. I dont use their products and no I know for sure they dont have enough material to port that large. Again iacv port kinda gets in the way


Wanna know how large you can port it. Measure your inlet size. Then measure how much material before you crush into the iacv minus 1mm for sealing surface

There you go. That applies to any car/manifold ever made even magical skunk2 sohc manifolds that lose power ;D


Also who makes a 76mm plate throttle body for honda's?

They are shorter in size, i just removed the fuel rail spacers and spaced them to the desired hieght with washers and shorter bolts. I also put a small o ring on the manifold side of the injector and it slid into the standard honda manifold injector orings and locked into place.

Ok was getting the motor together today. Everything was going good up until I went to put the pistons onto the rods. For some reason the top of the rod is hitting the under side of the piston. The pistons have a bit of a hump to them, I started shaving the hump down to clear the rod, but the damn dermal died half way through the first one; went at it with a hand drill for a few hours and only got 2.5 done.  Crank is in and thats it....

I guess tomorrow is another day :-\

ill dig up the pics I took (i was going to do a write up). I just used some wrx plugs off a dead engine we had at work, I think all obd2 plugs may be very similar because iv also used late model evo plug wires.

The day started out with me going and picking up the rest of the little Bs I needed to get the motor together. Got a super late start because my friend is a lazy guy that almost didn't get up.

Back to the Man, here he is giving the crank a good look over.

An the motor that I am building. Its a 9v9LD hahahhahaha no its a D16A6

(http://i971.photobucket.com/albums/ae195/crxvtec91/dscn0036.jpg)

Around this time we started running into the first set of problems.
(http://i971.photobucket.com/albums/ae195/crxvtec91/dscn0141.jpg)

(http://i971.photobucket.com/albums/ae195/crxvtec91/dscn0142.jpg)

Here was the problem, the damn rest pin would not go through the piston and rod. The problem was that there was a hump under the piston that would not let the rod go all the way up. I ended up taking a dermal to the under side of the piston. This would have work great but the damn dermal thought it would be a good idea to crap its self and die. Good thing for HF, there $2 dermal did the job with out dieing.

(http://i971.photobucket.com/albums/ae195/crxvtec91/dscn0147.jpg)

Since all the bearings check out it was time to lube them up and re TQ them down.
(http://i971.photobucket.com/albums/ae195/crxvtec91/dscn0132.jpg)

This is me lubing up the mains.

Here is another pic of everything we used to work on the motor.
(http://i971.photobucket.com/albums/ae195/crxvtec91/dscn0126.jpg)

At this point in time everything was going rather smooth, then once again another set back. As we where installing the rods and pistons some how one of the bearings fuck up on rod number 1, by now it had gotten late and we call it a night. I been super busy since then so the motor is still apart. I did get a new set of rod bearings soon I just need some free time.

I also have a bunch more parts showing up soon.


This is me looking at one of the pistons before we started grinding the under part of it.

Should have checked the "crush" in the bearings before plastigauging them. But it would be more difficult seeing as you have a girdle instead of individual main bearing caps. Without checking, you dunno if the bearings have sufficient crush to keep it from spinning a bearings.

Its a pain in the ass getting around the girdle so that would be rather hard....

Only way I can think to check it is to use a snap gauge to measure the bores of the bearings at different angles to check for out-of-roundness, and mike the snap-gauge to get your measurements. Would be a pain in the ass, no doubt. But worth checking IMO. Seems most people don't check it, and spinning bearings seems to be more common on hondas than some other vehicles.

It was over my friends house, and yes it was fucking cold! We set the ring gap to .018 for top ring and .020 for the lower, yes they are vitaras. The reason for the loser ring gap is the plans for the motor. Once everything is together and running good, the car will be brought to JD. Want to see what it will make at 30-35psi and maybe a 100shot :noel: Whats shady about the engine build? All specs have been check to make sure they where fine, everything was super clean.

What I do to make bottom end assembly easier is find an old girdle and cut out everything but the outter caps on each end and install it. Put my rods in, torque. Remove the 2 caps and install the real girdle.

You know I thought about that, even had a old junk one to hack up..... Oh to late now lol.

Only update is the motor is still not together, between working 30 hours a week and going to school full time its hard to find time. I also want to take the time and clay the motor as per JD instructions to see how far the cam can be push before hitting the valves.

Well went to through in the last bearing last night. Put it in and once again a fuck bearing. Took a better look at the crank and there is a small nick, in the journal thats fuck up 2 bearings. Looks like I need to pull the crank and get another one. Good thing is I have a back up crank. Don't know if this happen at the machine shop or some where in between there and the place im building the motor.......

next time you go to lap the valves. DO NOT PUT THE DRILL DIRECTLY ON THE VALVES, use a piece of vacuum line on the valve that is 5-6 inches long and then put the other end in the drill. You probably trashed your guides doing it that way.

Plan is to make a true twin scroll manifold, with the 12cm hotside I should be able to make full boost almost 1k sooner. Only one way to tell.

Just a heads up. You cant use just the tow hook bolt holes for the traction bar. It will tear them right the fuck out. You will also need to weld on a bracket or something on each and to use at least 1 of the bolt holes that the factory crossmember uses.

This was the fitting I used, it had the right thread pitch, on the other side of the rail I had to cut, drill, and tap for it.

Well after some time JD sent me the graph, I was going to post the correct dyno grapgh that showed the 500hp, but what's the fun in that.

I need to post up last years dyno graph, nothing changed but the car and the turbo manifold.

Well time to update!

One thing that was clear to me back in June when I was on the dyno was I had to replace the gas tank as it was leaking from one corner. I really didnt want to drop the tank again on my back. A close friend of mine told me to being it down to where he work, HONDA! Need less to say I couldnt pass up on the offer.

You got lo love having all the right tools to do this! Power lift for picking things up and dropping them off.

So since the last update the crx still needed a few small things and a new battery tray. Friday and some of sat working to get ready, I spent some time going over everything and making a new battery tray out of some angle iron I found laying around.

(http://i971.photobucket.com/albums/ae195/crxvtec91/Project%20Phoenix/20121123_141716.jpg)

(http://i971.photobucket.com/albums/ae195/crxvtec91/Project%20Phoenix/20121123_141703.jpg)

I really wanted to keep the battery in the engine bay but due to space the only place was on the back cross member.

(http://i971.photobucket.com/albums/ae195/crxvtec91/Project%20Phoenix/20121123_142537.jpg)

(http://i971.photobucket.com/albums/ae195/crxvtec91/Project%20Phoenix/20121123_142532.jpg)

Once that was out of the way It was time to fit the bumper, I ended cutting up the bumper a lot to get it to fit right.

(http://i971.photobucket.com/albums/ae195/crxvtec91/Project%20Phoenix/20121123_153240.jpg)

Next up was a catch can, since I was all out of supply I resorted to a nos bottle I had laying around.

(http://i971.photobucket.com/albums/ae195/crxvtec91/Project%20Phoenix/20121123_153227.jpg)

(http://i971.photobucket.com/albums/ae195/crxvtec91/Project%20Phoenix/20121123_153232.jpg)

 At this point I had reserved a trailer to tow the crx down since I didnt feel like using the tow bar witch ment I could install the axles and get ready. Driver side was in under 10min, the passenger side took almost 5 hours.....

(http://i971.photobucket.com/albums/ae195/crxvtec91/Project%20Phoenix/20121124_140137.jpg)

(http://i971.photobucket.com/albums/ae195/crxvtec91/Project%20Phoenix/20121124_151303.jpg)

I broke 5 craftsman 1/2 ratchets, 1 1/2 snap-on breaker bar; lots of heat and a baller snap-on gun was what ended up getting the damn axle nut off....

Sunday, fresh off the trailer and ready to go.

At this point I was pump, car sounded GREAT! I was letting the car warm up witch took forever to even start due to some e85 blues (super cold weather). Car warmed up, fan kick on, rev'ed it a bit, then.............. R.....I....P..... crank pulley.......................

Track day was over, I couldnt get a pulley in time to make a pass. I also got hit by some of the broken bits. Lucky no one got hurt and I believe the motor is still good.

I dont understand why it blew apart as this motor has been together for over 30,000 miles...

Had a issue right off the trailer, alt belt rip apart (same belt that was on last week when the crank pulley broke) so a back up one was put in place.

I thought it would be best to do my first shake down pass on street tires, lets just say it was a bit much. I took off from the light easy boost hits super fast and instantly points me towards the wall, start fighting the wheel and granny shift into second. As soon as it goes into second it hits full boost shooting me towards the wall again, had to let off the gas, shift 3rd boost hits same deal. Went to shift 4th and the whole car got WAY to sloppy so I coasted a 1/3 of the track. 14.7 @70mph 2.2 60ft

I could have got another run in, but after the first run the alt belt had flip on itself and was about to shred apart. Alt and crank pulley do not have the same number of teeth.

So what I learn on that pass, I need to do some improvements to the traction bar. As power comes on caster is moving a lot, to the point that if I was on slicks it would have been in the fender. Street tires are a joke, but I think it has 12's on street tires. Rear suspension needs to be gone through. Alt pulley needs to be changed to match the crank pulley. The welded diff is getting old QUICK so thats going to be changed over the winter time. 

Last I did weigh the car, with me in it the car is 2180 im about 220-230. Crx has not been gutted, I think ive only added weight.

Yea, I'm sure it will. The turbo car has no title and will be 100% drag car after the 2013 grm challenge.

I think income tax time I will get a lsd, rsx axles, and k-seires hubs and hit the street.

I don't know about the hub size, but I can confirm they are 4x100 for sure. I had one that I swapped wheels back and forth with a crx I had.

Nothing really been trying to save up some money and redo all the suspension at one shot.

Thats good to hear, but there are none of these cars in the local junk yards.

Here is what I have found out about the 90 prelude hubs. They will actually work with the 36mm axles, and they are also 4x100.
A key thing I found out was that the 90-93 integra shares the exact same bearing so you could essensially press these hubs right in the same as a stock hub.
Here are the dimensions of the bearing:

        Metric (mm)      Standard (inch)
Inner Diameter   42       1.6535
Outer Diameter   78       3.0709
Height              41       1.6142

As for it fitting in the 94-01 integra spindle using the outer bearing race from the prelude hub, it does work but is sloppy as the inner diameter of that bearing is 43mm so it doesn't fit tight in there. But once you torque on the axle nut everything seems to stay tight.

Small update, havent got much done but have been slowly ordering parts.

My single most expensive part for this year, new Mfactory LSD courtesy of Aquafina (DSO Whoopee Doo Racing). He gave me the best price and really help me out would differently buy from him again.

Well looks like its been a while since I updated this..... Good news is work has been going down last few months. I was able to get it to NC this year but clutch issues stop us from breaking the current vitara power record. Anyways onto the pic's!

Back in Dec when I ran the car I notice the suspension was so warn out and needed to be replace. I tore out all of the suspension to change the bushings at the start of June. Time was limited since I had to be in NC on the 21st of June.

All of the suspension was warn, beat, dirty, greasy, and grimy I cant even recall the amount of time it took to clean everything up.... :-X

You cant beat all new bushings all around. I was able to replace all of it!

So some of you know I lost the fuel pump on my yukon once I hit D.C. it died 1 mile past the pentagon. I was able to get the cars off the highway but ended up having to tow them to the other side of town to get the pump changed. What a pain that was, between the tow, labor, and fuel pump it was a $800 day.......

Well may have hurt the motor.....

 Need to pull the oil pan and inspect.

 First time ever on a pro tree.

 1st pass- 12.6 @ 130mph with a 2.4 60' I bog bad and forgot I was on 30psi
 2nd pass- 11.7 @ 115mph with a 1.74 60' on 18psi lunch could have been better

 Pass 3-5 a mix of 12's pass due to alt belt issues and pro tree noob.
 5th pass oil light blink then went solid as soon as I went into 3rd, I cut it off but it doesnt sound right.

11.5 index! What a badass class, I qualified 15 out of 86.

Fast forward to 2:30, I lost the alt belt half way down the track in this vid. Dont recall what I ran in this pass.

Last run where I hurt the motor. Guy in the ek was a all motor k24, he cut a 1.6 60' and I cut a 1.70 60' in this pass. His car was super heat soak, when it was cooler he ran a 11.2

Damn it has been a while since I updated this!................

Still havnt pulled the oil pan but I did fire her up 2 weeks ago. She sounded good but the oil pump is done.

I spent some money, want to make sure im not going to have issues once she is back on the dyno.

First thing first this baby needs a new IM. The stock ported z6 is holding me back I feel. Time to build a new one!

Fuck yeah. I loved the feel of the cable so much more than the hydro. I forgot how soft stock clutches were untill i bought my stock accord. Kinda want to put a lsd motorsports dragger pressure plate in just for daily driving because the stock clutch setup feels like a wet sponge. I'm curious how well your setup is gonna work with a cable.

This is when I ran into some issues with the block, took some time to figure out what was going on before I could rebuild. Slap a old school TunerToys rod in then 3 fjt rods.

At this point it was early Nov and getting cold. Car was ready and we headed for the track. Once we got there the cold weather made cold starting a pain. Also while waiting in the lanes the car over heated, fan switch went bad and cluster wasnt reading temp. My fault for not checking, we jump the fan and kept it moving. After waiting for almost 1 hour due to people breaking down I get up to the burn out box only to have shut down and wait for another clean up...

Once they were done cleaning up, go to do a burn out and lost almost all power..... kept trying and nothing. I end up pulling to the side, pop the hood and my fuel pressure had drop to 25psi... We let the car sit for 15 min, fired her up and had odd fuel pressure. The car had been setting for close to a year, I never dump the e85 in the tank and was low to boot. I choice not to risk the motor and just watch races the rest of the day.

I believe the fuel filter is clogged and or the injectors need cleaning. 

Pic of the gf waiting with me in the cold.

Details on the stroker?

It came out of my civic I built it 2-3 years ago. The block is a y7, but that is is only thing y7 in the motor. Crank, rods, pistons, ect everything else is from a D17, I also added arp rod bolts.

Plan is to get it running 100% and boost it to around 300hp :noel:

Fuck this has been to long......................

Oh well time for a update, its been a long time but a lot has happen since I last updated this. Crx took a bit of a back burner for a while, I finally finish my Masters, changed jobs, had a ton of other projects, built a few motors, and finally relax a bit.

Anyways onto the pic's.

This is how the car sat from last year.

For sometime I was highly annoyed with the super small battery. It was also in a hard to jump spot under the ic piping. I also did not want to move the battery to the truck, with that I new the best spot would be up front. To move it up front I need to change my IC and piping.

Broken bisi level X, I had got a great deal on it. I sent the cam off to Rocket to see if their cam was bigger and to confirm the spec of the level X. Needs to say it was a good bit smaller then the  RM level 5. Robert from RM gave me a great deal I couldnt pass up. Despite packing the cams well, ups really fuck up the box hard core. The RM cam almost fell out and took a major hit. Nothing happen to the RM cam, yet the bisi cam broke.........

I made the mistake when I got the scatter shield, I had forgot there is a major difference from a hydro and cable trans. This force me to make a new lower section for the scatter shield. You can also see the down pipe coming in.
