  6. 87 civic

    Hi there if ur car has the D series motor in it, u can only swap to another D series with minimum work. (exludes the D16Y family) a direct replacement is obviously a direct swap. else u can opt for: ZC, D16A3/8: ZC: JDM basically a D16A($500-800), A3 = brown top (manual vacumn), A8 = black top (electronic vacumn). different heads. not too hard i guess this swap. comes out of a DA3 Teg/Rover. the motor will drop right in with stock mounts (i think) along with a trans from the D16A. along with that u will need to run new fuel lines, fuel pump, engine loom, ecu, maybe shafts. B16/B18/B20/D16Y: b-series ($1100-$7000) found in the DA9, EG6, DC2, DC4, EK4. D16Y ($500-900) series found in the EJ's, EG2, EG4, EG5, EK1. will need a heap of stuff done for this to happen. custom mounts (place like hasport), ecu, engine loom, shafts, fuel lines + pump (again cos u r currently carby) keep in mind that u will may lose power steering and a/c depending on which mounts u get. H-series: ($1500) not practical and why would you. K-series: ($~5000) engine is too tall for the engine bay. has been done but a hole is cut in the bonnet to clear the rocker cover. may disguise hole with a scoop? good luck with which ever one u choose mate

  8. yep ozhonda *thumbs up*
  9. the newer crx's? wot u see in the engine bay of a civic, is wot u'll see in the engine bay of a crx hence Civic Renaissance model X. yes they come: D16Y1or4: SOHC non vtec (=civic ek1 gli and cxi) (gli has tach power wind etc, cxi no tach no power wind etc) D16Y8: SOHC vtec (=civic EJ?) B16A2: DOHC vtec (=civic ek4 vtir) yes they are cheap to run! things to look out for on a civic and i guess crx: - remote central locking on drivers side is sticky on cold days yet fine when it warms up so watch for that one!!!! - suspension bushes under car (tegs are notorious for them, and thrashed civics ie.vtir) - engine should have no leaks on the D16Y's (great daily motor they are) - on B16A, watch for the typical honda oil leak just under the TDC sensor near top radiator hose. - and all the other usual stuff on a used car. - check for signs of respray and collisions
  10. v-tec controller

    yeh vtec controller is pretty useless in a stock motor. at the very least should have cams. btw, if u do get the vtec controller get the car tuned on a dyno... no point doing the job half way so basically if ur motor is stock, dont bother with a vtec controller.
  11. h22a into an ek

    any B series wud be the easier and cheaper and less of a head f*** Keep in mind that the EK's have a immobilizer -> chip in the key!! clear that up b4 anything else ur car wont start after ur hard earned conversion is done. B series is direct bolt in: motor trans rear mount bracket from 99-00 civic loom+ecu i was thinking on doin it too but never got around to it.. goodluck

    almost forgot get the car up on a hoist n check out the suspension bushes... i know tegs are notorious for them partly cos of the driver while its up there, the underside tells a whole new story bout the car!

  14. buying my first car honda civic

    not a bad price... i sold my EK civic here in adelaide for 6.5k car had nothing wrong with it manual though =D check it out n see if its clean, no collisions, clean inside and out expect no leaks or funny noises from the D16Y's if it checks out, i see y not. BTW: wtb DC2 Intgera Vtir.
