I saw a bunch of Fram oil filters in one of the pics.
Just a suggestion - get rid of all of them.
take a look on the internet for oil filter comparisons and you'll understand why.

like the engine choice - should be plenty strong!

theres nothing wrong with fram oil filters bud
even the cheaper filters with no brand on them will still get the job done

sure some filters filter better but there not nessesary (there coming out again next oil change) unless your the type of person that doesnt change there oil
but if you change your oil at least every 3.500 miles youll be fine


you know this will be my first time having a b20 in a ef, i cant wait to take this car on the back dirt roads of the country side

Isn't Fram the filter supplier for Hondas built in North America? I know Filtech makes the air cleaner housings, but I think Fram supplies the oil filters?

You are so very wrong, but do what you please.
FRAM filter construction is pretty much inferior.

will with me being ASE certified with three different car companies
and also being an engineer at kawasaki
i can tell you that im not wrong

and my build thread isnt the place for me to go off topic about witch brand of filter is better

i kinda feel like running this motor with no filter at all now just to **** you off haha
just kidding

you are kinda right on that
when i worked at the honda dealer here in America back in 2012

we had three different brands of oem oil filters and also air filters

fram !!
filtech
and toyo roki

all the same blue honda filters

i do have updates for you guys on the build but photobucket isnt letting me upload new pictures

photo bucket is working again
so back on track now

to fix my two problems i knew i had to take another junkyard run
so i made a template for my driverside bracket


basicly looking for the same thing but only using one of the hole and one of the marked ones

i got a 5 speed da integra drivers side bracket its the one that fit my template

its gotta be the one because the one from the dc teg has 3 mounting holes for the bracket




also got a 5 speed intermid shaft from a da teg




more updates soon

well lets keep this going
first off before you do something like this
make adjustments to your engine harness
its a good idea to mark all your connections before to remove them
since im going from dual point to multi point and also going from auto to manual its just a good idea to know where everything goes


i got my drivetrain out
and its sitting in the back of my honda element
waiting to be sold


inside of the car is looking like this


today i got these bolted down and hooked up

was a big pain with the steering wheel in the way the whole time
but its done and its in the past ^_-

more updates soon

ran into a problem today with my new alternator
but heres an engine bay pic first
with no engine or trans


and heres the problem i ran into today

this is my 90-91 integra alt in my 01 crv b20z2
the alt hits the water pump and wont go back enough for the upper bracket to grab
and the integra brackets upper and bottom are the same as the crv ones
so im guessing this alternator is off somthing else and i got the wrong part
but since this alternator was made/rebuilt by my grandpa all the way in Osaka
i figure id make it work
i just have to get a longer belt
and make a extention bracket

making a bracket for it is easy




only problem i see is that once i install the motor that the alt may hit on the frame of the car

more updates soon

Default Re: Marcos's new work car 90 sedan

if this was a normal honda tech build that would be the next thing on the list haha

my engine bay is not going to be shined up and wires tucked and crap like that because it does nothing for function
its just for looks and soo im my eyes its KINDA just a waste of time i am however filling in all the holes that are not in use
I dont mean to insult anyone its just the way i feel ^_-

moving on with some progress
since the last thing ive shown you guys was my alternator bracket i made
there is another thing thats needed to make that work and thats getting a longer alt belt
stock there 31 1/2 inched long
so i just went with a 32 inch

i have not test fitted the belt yet so a 32 might be perfect or still too short
we will see
now i have run all my new wires from my new obdo pr4 ecu to the engine bay

i only used two colors but named the wires different colors

and i joined the engine with my cable trans and dropped in it

lots of test fitting of things for example my headers wouldnt clear my crossmember

at first i started cutting away at the crossmember till i noticed that it would be too much
to cut
and so i removed it and then installed the headers

you can see where i was even starting to cut into the raditator support
but i stopped myself and then trimmed the crossmember after the header was installed
and the cutting i did before this bright idea hit me haha
it had to be fixed so i grabbed some steel i had laying around and fixed all the over cutting i did


more test fitting
my alternater did hit on the side wall so my motor is going to have to come out again so i can bash in the wall so the alt can clear

now i know i had to make a block off plate to cover the hole i have for the auto trans cable so i grabbed the stock plate and cut it
and then added some metal just tacked in a few places and then used gasket maker to cover the sides



the stock da shift leakage i was going to use was about 3 inches too big so i also cut it and trimmed it
then welded all back together
looks great inside the car and also under



today i started making my new exhaust
its going to be made from my stash of stainless steel and mild steel tubeing
and im going with 2in piping i only have to make my middle section
so it shouldnt be two bad
haha i say that now


more updates soon

Default Re: Marcos's new work car 90 sedan

time for more pregress
ive been putting alot of hours at work
so the time with the sedan has been limited
but heres what ive got so far

first off we now have our new da integra axles installed along with new lower ball joints

and i also serviced the brakes while i was at it

got my front bumper and corner lights installed
and lined up


my ac fan did not fit because of the aftermarket header
so i see a slim fan in my future



i have almost everything hooked up

i got rid of 5 plugs and added two of my own
to the harness


anyone know where the vacume line goes in this picture?
im pretty sure it just goes from the fpr to that valve on the left
but im not sure

lets move on to that exhaust he said he was going to make himself!!

this is what i started with
and after about 9 cuts and angling everything to my liking






so now i have all the hoses connected and all the wiring hooked up
i was left with two things one was my clutch cable and my throttle cable the throttle cable im sure i can use the da one but
the clutch cable was too short
about an inch 1/2 i looked and the longness of my da cable and grabbed a ef civic one and there the same size
so i dont know what the issue is there
i can always modify the bracket that holds the cable and lower it so my cable reaches the trans
i dont know if theres an old trick here that i dont know about?

and lastly for this update i grabbed my real type r shift **** and wet sanded the rust off it and then hit it with
two coats of clear



the car may run soon ^_-

checked the cap on my new dizzy and two of the tabs where the rotor swipes across
are too far out and bent out of reach for the rotor to send the spark out
so i only had two cyl getting spark
but since the whole dizzy is under warrenty i just sent it back today for another
now we just have to wait

Ok just a heads up man that header is going to scrap on everything they hang to low for ef chassis , you have to cut the xmenber to clear almost every header out there , if your worried about structural integrity then your basically going to be stuck running a traction. Bar ( awesome upgrade me real negatives as long as your not slammed ) and last that alternator bracket isn't going to clear the frame rail using the correct alternator and bracket the only way to clear the rail in a ef is to set it all the way forward and run a d series belt and it barely clears then .. Good luck man

thanks for the advice man
its good info to go off of....but haha
the x member i did have to cut to make the header fit i left a 1/4 inch of gap around all header pipes
and welded 1-8th steel around the non cut areas making my x member just as strong or a bit stronger than stock so no need to throw money away on a
traction bar
this is a work car so it well never be slammed, i do know what you mean about the header hanging low it does but with the car not being lowered
the clearence from the down pipe to the ground is 7 inches just enough to not have to worry about scraping,

and my alternator bracket as with most b series swaps you have to bash in the side wall for the alt to clear and when i did my BASHING
i dented the wall enough to clear my alt with the bracket and still have 2 inches for removal of alt in the future


good news guys she runs ^_^
got my new dizzy in and like a little kid i ran to the garage after work to install it and try to start the car
and she runs the fans kick on it doesnt over heat
and doesnt leak any fluids
i took it out for a drive
but the car is in limp mode because i got a check engine light for a code 4 crank postion sensor
and sadly that sensor is in my new dizzy so monday its back to the parts store to try and get another dizzy
in limp mode the car wont rev past 3k but it didnt stop me from driving it 37 miles till it went back in the garage ^_-

more updates soon

that is a aftermarket header for a 98 gsr integra
i had to grind off a bit of the steel on the bottom to make it work with the b20 head
but it does fit nice and snug
