Default SOHC VTEC Mini-Me Quarter Mile Time...VERY HAPPY

Well, this weekend I finally got a chance to take my working mini-me to the track, with the goal of breaking into the 15's...and did it. The first time I went to the track, I ran my stock D15B7 with I/E and ran a 16.9 @ 81 with a shitty 2.4 60ft. I did my mini-me swap, and went to Englishtown and ran a 17.3 @ 78 best with a horrid 2.5 60ft...I didn't get lower than that at all that day. I didn't know what the hell was wrong. I then discovered that I forgot to pull an oil jet in the block that makes VTEC activate. I did that, and didn't have a chance to get to the track until now. I was running consistent 16.1' with 2.3 60fts, and I got the 60ft down to 2.2 for the last run and was rewarded with a 15 second timeslip. I'm very pleased with the results, and I have an EX tranny waiting to be installed (as soon as I get a new clutch). After that, i'm going to upgrade my header and exhaust system, and slap a cam in there. I want to have 14's before I start modifying the bottom end.

Current Setup:
1993 Honda Civic LX Sedan (Weighed in at 2320 lbs without driver)
D15B7 Block and Tranny
D16Z6 Head / Intake Manifold / Exhaust Manifold
Full Interior with Spare Tire, Tools
Short Ram Intake w/ removed headlight
Welded-on straight through eBay muffler
Stock Cat/Exhaust Piping
Original Clutch w/ 160,000 miles
No PS belt
175/50/13 All-Season tires on 13" VX Wheels @ 23psi

Timeslip:

That's pretty impressive, especially the fact that you ran it in a 4 door with a DX tranny and original clutch. I just put together a mini-me using a B2 bottom, and I'm a little curious to see what it will run. It's in a 88 hatch, so I'd be happy with mid to high 15's on street tires. Good luck with the further enhancements to the motor. Click the image to open in full size.

Yeah...DX tranny is a big Click the image to open in full size. 's. However, if you read my VX wheel thread ( http://www.honda-tech.com/zerothread?id=629535 ) you'll see that having the 175/50/13 tires helps a lot in terms of gearing. I'm really looking forward to a new clutch and EX tranny... Click the image to open in full size. Click the image to open in full size.

oh yeah...forgot to mention that...23 PSI

the tires are really ******* small so I didn't want to run the pressure TOO low, I started with 25 and moved down to 23...it seemed to be a good balance

Default Tire size

Have you done a tire size comparison yet?

Stock sive vs. 175/50/13s?

I know how losing almost three inches in diameter feels.
But numbers would be good.

Look at the end of the VX wheel thread...

They are actually pretty damn sticky, I had to cook em before each run though...it was awesome!

Here is an interesting comparo of the sumi's vs the pirelli's with similar 60fts-

195/50/15 Pirelli P700-Z on Integra LS wheels:
60ft: 2.400
1/8: 10.531
MPH: 68.00
1/4: 16.407
MPH: 84.08

175/50/13 Sumitomo HTR200 on Civic VX Wheels:
60ft: 2.451
1/8: 10.594
MPH: 66.53
1/4: 16.406
MPH: 85.09

You can see the difference...with the civic VX wheels at the 1/8 mile I was .06 seconds behind and 1.5 MPH behind my other run, and at the 1/4 mile I was .01 seconds ahead and 1 MPH ahead of my original run. So, in the second half of the run, I only gained a tenth of a second, but on the other hand I did gain a whopping 2.5 MPH with the VX wheels, and I had an overall better run with a worse 60ft...not bad at all Click the image to open in full size.

congrats on the improvements
I would suggest doing a little weight reduction
I've ran 9.8s in the 1/8th with a d15b7, mostly just boltons. I think dropping some weight should really help, and no doubt the ex trans is gonna bring you down probably 3 tenths at least. You have a good platform to build on though.

Practice makes perfect. Nto sure about the power difference between a mini me and a DOHC ZC motor, but my buddy pulled a 15.5 with his ZC Civic WAGON. Click the image to open in full size.
