Hey fellas, first account here. My Dad owns an eighth gen 2010 Honda Accord. I just daily the thing cause I'm a broke college kid. I made this account just in case something goes wrong and I need to refer to here, or I buy my own fun Honda in the future. I'm thinking a little DA9 build or something. I also made an account for the reason being that I want to learn, learn, and learn some more from the wonderful experienced Honda guys here. Cheers!

Hey, gotta' eg coupe w minime awaiting g23 swap'

There's something about these little cars I can't let go of. Was heavily into small block Chevys, Datsun Zs, Chevys IN Datsun Zs, and Honda CBRs but have come full circle to little old racin' Hondas. Most of previous Honda experience aside from the crotch rockets comes from 1st gen civics and bolt on Accord motor swaps. Looking back those old iron block cvcc engines were garbage compared to a more modern power plant but went ok in a car that weighed little more than a ridged potato chip.

Have most of materials needed for the big block swap but kinda' want to throw valve springs, mild port work, and some tuning at the y8/b7, as I already have the Zex 59300 cam and do intend on eventually having it in a daily. I think a high c/r mini is unbeatable in terms of performance balanced with fuel efficiency and low cost.

Kinda' nervous about the g23, as it is semi-experimental in nature. I gave it h beam rods in light of the large stroke and head work, doubled the mls head gaskets to hopefully run 92, really have everything but cams/springs at this point.

Default Hello There!

Hey everyone! My name is Pablo Hernandez, 18, from Miami, Florida. I've always been into the car scene and wanted to have a build of my own; additionally, my father was also a part of the car scene down here in Miami so it only felt natural for me to get involved. When I was born my parents were still in high school so I was at every car meet and show that took place. My father founded a car club known as "AutoTrenz" and was a major part of the culture here in my area. Eventually his car club faded out; however, I am bringing it back with a huge variety of members in mind.

That being said, I have bought my first build for $150. It's a 1998 Acura Integra GS: no engine or tranny but had full interior and GSR seats. This being my first build it is going to take pretty long for me to complete because of school and work. However, I'm learning along the way and doing lots of research. I'm more of a DIY type of person. So far I have bought an engine for the car and a transmission. The engine is a B18B1 with ARP head studs and new CAM gears. The transmission is out of a 2000 Honda Civic si. I don't know the model yet but will find out. My father used this site to do prelude VTEC head swap, so I decided to see what else I can find on here.

The following pictures are my Integra and my father's old Honda Prelude(which is since been lost through the years).

Picture from a car show that my father gave to the body kit company to use for advertisements.

My project.

Default Oval racing B18's and B20 and general all aroung motor head

Hi all, my sons and I race Integras at the local oval track. I have a technical background in the development of ECU's for turbine engines for the aviation industry. Looking for info on programming P75 OBDII ECU's. I have the soldering skills and am familiar with programming embedded micro controller systems so I'm a newbie but kinda not.

Hello, my name is henry and I have very little experience with cars as it is. I am currently going to college for an ast- compsci. I daily drive an Acura tsx to and from school/work. I also share a 1998 Honda civic with my dad but only if I need it. Just today I received a 1995 Honda civic sedan as a gift from my aunt. I plan as using as a project car. Seeing how it is automatic I will be doing a manual swap. I'm excited to be part of the community and cant wait for what's to come. I will be making a post soon about my new 1995 car and the journey of turning it into a nice sleeper with good power under the hood.

I always thought these little cars were best suited for road racing as opposed to drag, though people are somehow getting them to launch.
Can I inquire as to what would be a good setup in an EG coupe? I have a 24mm rear sway/brace, no front, new oe struts, all poly bushings, dropped on chopped stock springs. Little bastard goes from mild understeer to woohoo! all too quickly as cornering force increases. I wasn't really planning on drifting a Honda. Or dying in one for that matter.
Any suggestions on decent coilovers and spring rates? I'll be running a big block which adds like 200lbs to front.

You can call me Crunch (nick-name). Honda guy since 1994. '89 CRX HF, '04 Civic EX Coupe, '07 Civic EX Coupe but all are gone now.Both Civic were left stock since no potential. The CRX had everything done outside of being Turbo or SC. Been in many different clubs, did track days and some club racing. Was about to do SCCA racing but had to let go of the CRX because of a move and lack of storage and other issues. Looking to get another to build and just doing all the background work so I can plan the build. Been here for around 10 years but forgot my last login info. Always lurked though.

It probably is the just the gas. I would add some octane boost if over half a tank, then see how she does. Could also be bad gas, maybe try some Lucas or Seafoam. I would not mix them though. Good luck, keep us posted.

It can take that long for crappy gas to get to plenum if one isn't far from work. Be gentle on it until the 92oct flushes the mistake out, you have high-assed cyl pressures.
