    EF Hatch build LS-V turbo

    I am happy to join with you today in what will go down in history as the greatest demonstration for freedom in the history of our nation.


    Five score years ago, a great American, in whose symbolic shadow we stand today, signed the Emancipation Proclamation. This momentous decree came as a great beacon light of hope to millions of Honda enthusiasts who had been seared in the flames of withering injustice. It came as a joyous daybreak to end the long night of their captivity.


    But twenty years later, the Honda enthusiast still is not free. twenty years later, the life of the Honda enthusiast is still sadly crippled by the manacles of ricers and the chains of haters. twenty years later, the Honda enthusiast lives on a lonely island of poverty in the midst of a vast ocean of material prosperity. Twenty years later, the Honda enthusiast is still languishing in the corners of American society and finds himself an exile in his own land. So we have come here today to dramatize a shameful condition.



    So I bought a $500 car. Only thing wrong with it is it wouldn't start. And being an EF civic there was a 100% chance it was the main relay. I pulled the main relay out, sprayed it with MAF cleaner to cool down the solder joints enough so it would start and drove away. A 1988 Honda Civic Hatchback STD to be exact. And I have a dream for this car, and that dream is speed. Ultimate goal is 400whp with a LS-vtec turbo.

    Plans so far are b18a1 block, b16 vtec head, and precision 6265 turbo with hondata s300 tuned by RLZ here in NC. I bought a wrecked DA integra for $1000 and am pulling the block, suspension and brakes from it.

    Also bought some rota circuit 8s for cheap, replacing the DUBish wheels that came with the car.

    Money spent so far:

    $500 Car
    $1000 block, suspension, front seats, brakes
    $200 rota circuit 8s

    Total: $1700

    Passenger side mirrors are overrated.

    This project will take roughly 100 million years but I'll keep the thread updated as $#@! happens.

    I decided to swap in the full LS motor while I'm building the real motor to go in it, you have the rev the $#@! out of the d15 to keep up on the highway. So the B18a1 and 5 speed will be going in within the next two weeks. Got the full bushing set for an EF/DA 'teg, once the wrecked car is delivered to me I'm going to swap everything and press the new bushings in. The 'teg has skunk2 sleeves as well, should be skyjacker on the ef though.

    Also got everything stripped out except the sound deadening, weighed in at 1710 with a half tank of gas and a driver's seat.

    One thing I've heard conflicting things on is if I should swap the DA upper control arms as well as the lower control arms for the front suspension, or just the lower control arms. Some people are saying the UCAs cause a $#@! load of positive camber on a civic, others say I'll have too much negative camber without them. Anyone know? I'll probably just try both if I don't get a solid answer.

    Don't know how I missed this, badass thread man. I kind of feel odd to have shoes that cost more than a car but hey. Nice budget build for fun, respect.

    I finally got the integra from the wrecker, only a month and a half late. I forgot to take pictures, but I got the rear suspension off the integra in about an hour. Cleaning everything tomorrow and putting the new bushings in. Should have all wheel disk brakes by tuesday as well as a drop. Pulling the motor in a few weeks, might sell it as is to recoup some of the cost of the parts car though.

    Rear suspension from the donor car all cleaned up, just have to press the trailing arm bushings and I can start throwing it on the EF.

    Fresh ES bushings pressed in.

    Morbid Angel slime green valve cover on the DA's b18. Battery must have exploded in the accident, battery acid is everywhere.

    I ordered energy suspension rear trailing arm bushings, which aren't as easy to install as I thought. I had to remove the old bushing from the sleeve then clear out all the rubber from it. I used fire and violence, because that is how I roll.

    I'm off of work for the next two days so the suspension should hopefully be done by Tuesday.

    I broke a bolt and I'm waiting on another one before I can finish the suspension on the EF. Great.

    I got one side on, still waiting on a bolt before I can throw the other one on. I kind of liked the slime green valve cover so I painted the brakes the same color, I'll probably just paint them black when I get tired of it.

    Got the rear suspension on both the EF and DA, also got the front suspension off the DA. Hopefully going to finish up the suspension swap tomorrow. Need to get a spanner wrench to adjust the coil overs though, this thing is pretty skyjacker.

    I tried to swap the front suspension tonight, figured out I need 26 spline axles to swap the DA front knuckles. Gotta go to the junkyard next week to find some, or I can buy new ones for $100 at autozone.

    Haven't really done much this week to it, just bought a junkyard HVAC control for $10 and threw it in. The car is much nicer to drive with heat/defrost! I'm looking for a prelude si or another DA integra without ABS for its proportioning valve this weekend, maybe some axles from an CRX as well.

    Took this with my phone, I think it came out pretty well.

    I went to the strip to watch the Force Fed cars race, DSPORT magazine was there. All in all, it was pretty fun. There was a RX3 with an evo motor on 40+ lbs of boost that almost rolled, didn't get a picture of that though.

    Click here to enlarge
    EF B16 + 6262, ~400whp vs E36 M3 turbo, EF ran 12s@130ish, spinning the whole way. BMW ran 11.7s pretty consistantly.

    Same EF

    Click here to enlarge
    The blue evo came from New York and supposedly had 1300 whp, they had to turn down the boost after the first run because it was uncontrollable on this track, ended up running a 9.5ish and beat a 1st gen talon which ran a 9.75.
