boosted 4dr...OFFICIALY jdm since pg 6
« on: April 20, 2009, 05:07:57 PM »

well my first two builds were FAIL 00 coupe caught on fire, 99 hatch got rear ended.

onto older and better things!!!

about to pick up a 93 EX 4 door



has 232k on her, going to boost it untill it blows up (should be pretty quick) and in the meantime I will be building the JDM d15b

wish me luck, 3rd time is the charm?

kit thats going on her



will have to hack it up a bit so the IC pipes fit the EG.

previous fails:

That black coupe looks nice.


yeah it was. . . had a ton of good things done to it. o well WTF can you do

the beaners tried to jip me( WTF else would you expect) so i got the price down to 1000

car is in great shape, very minor and easy to fix body work needed, new batery, new brakes, and axles are needed

not a big deal since i have two space civics sitting around.

this is the ABS model so it came with rear disks as far as i know :D

anyone know what I should be able to swap over from my old suspension/car setup? should be just about everything i assume tie/strut bars are all the same, shocks will work on the eg (tokicko blues) front rotors and pads are the same. dont think illl need anything else

the ABS light is on in the car and it stops poorly feels like the pedal is very soft, will bleed the system with fresh fluid and change the rotors tomorrow, any other ideas on what would cause the light to go on?

my goals are to get the car running very very well and get the suspension/brakes sorted before I delv into boost. The car needs to be prepared for the added stress of being turbo.

I've also decided that ill be redoing my charge pipes/down pipe to make it AC and PS compatible. This kind of car is really hard to find in this good of shape would be a shame to gut the fuck out of it IMO.

ok so a small update, got the alternator swapped out and it runs great now.

onto the suspension, what is compatible off my 99 hatch? I figure all of the mad typeR JDM braces are, but what about the subframe brace for the rear swaybay? turns out this car already has a rear sway, I plan on swapping over the 15mm one and the brace if it fits.

would the camber kit's (front and rear) swap over?? 

Im also fixing the brakes today, have new disks and hawk HPS pads going on the front. I looked at the back and it has disks from the factory :D will be putting the same on the back when i can. also the lines are very very rotted, would the SS lines off the hatch fit?? the pedal is super soft and the car stops like shit, hope its not as mushy once i bleed the sytem.

picked up some more aluminized 2.5 bends today, going to face the turbo the other way in order to keep the AC and PS.

not sure about the WG placement right now but ill figure it out when I come to that.

I just finished lowering it with the eibach springs and tokicko shocks, and i put the flat black rota C8's on it pics coming soon.

Also looking for red/clear tails( like the 99-00 ex not ricer shit) black housing fronts, amber corners, fogs, and a front and rear lip, already have sideskirts from my old car. anyone know where i can get this shit from the same seller for a good price on ebay? shipping it all separate is rape

ok so need some advice from you folks.

I found some standard 137mm rods eagle rods and vitaras for a good price.

now im trying to figure out What CR a JDM d15b will have with this setup

using zeal auto calc i input d15 block and crank, as well as z6 head and standard y8 gasket i got 8.27:1 cr

does this account for the pistons sticking out the .022?

hope you guys can help me out on this so i can have a built motor sooner

Looks good to me unless the vitaras are oversize 0.5mm or 1.0mm.

As long as that d15b is jdm and not usd then yes the 137mm rods would work.

I pd $60 for Y.C.P. vitaras
 
  pd $20 for rings

  pd $100 for used TT rods (same as eagles) w/o bolts

  pd $70 for bolts

Total $250 for vitara and rods for my setup

If I can get them that cheap maybe you could talk the guy down to $250 after shipping just maybe. ;D

yeah after looking at them more closeley they are in new shae aside from super light scratches so a good deal. plus FJ vitaras are slightly better then other( according to himself :-P) but his rods wont require machining and will come with ARP 2000 bolts

what are your oppinions on just re-using the bearings that are in the engine already?

its a very very fresh d15b 30,000 or so on it. although some of it was a little harsh it was always on synthetic and changed ever 3000. IDK Ill end up just buying some from honda most likely, just the d15b is ghay d16 rod bearings and d15 mains

gonna have to pick up 2 sets

FJ vitara = Y.C.P. vitara > NPR vitaras  ;D

If the engines is that fresh just make sure that when using the eagle rods with the old bearing that you still plasti-gauge them first.

Make sure they are still within spec. beacuse you may not like the results later.

FUCKING  :somb:!!!!

anyway. . . hope that makes the ABS light go off, front and rears now have brembo blanks and Hawk HP+. went to autozone and got new front calipers, bleed the system, the rears arent stoping at all

fronts get cooked when stopng hard but the backs are doing nothing. . .

bleed it many many times still the same results

any ideas on the ABS light? im downloading a pdf of all civic manuals, ill make a torrent and post it once the whole file is loaded

na finally got the right ones from vato-zone :-P they gave me the DX non abs ones, got rear ones too for my troubles for free just cores trade in lol

4 new calipers about 100 bucks not bad :)

car stops like crazy, brakes the stock rubber loose way to easy, almost no fade either. I would highly recomend hawk HP+ pads!!

now just need to get the abs working, looking for a pump on ebay right now.
