mini me

  1. Engine Management
    I'm nearly finished with the mini me swap for my 99 dx auto sedan and was wondering if running the p2e ecu for a little while will hurt anything aside from not having vtec. Should I run the y7 injectors til I get the new ecu?

    I have a 99 dx auto sedan with the stock d16y7 and trans. I figured since I'm rebuilding the motor I may as well get a little more pep and throw a y8 head and intake mani on my old block. Will I have any issues just plugging the y8 p2p ecu in and running wires for vtec or will I need to get the...

    1995 civic dx D15b7 with D16z6 head Chipped p28 Aem cam gear. I did the mini me swap about 5-6 months ago and since then I've had to readjust valve lash like 4 times. It seems like every couple of weeks rpms tend to break up at like 5500-6000. However it clears right up with a valve lash...

    I have a p28 ecu,d15b7 block with a y8 head, y8 cams, y8 cam gear, and z6 timing belt. I am a little confused with what I’m supposed to do with the cam gear timing. Do I align the marks with the the arrow on the plastic cover behind the gear or do I align it with that arrow and go half a tooth...

    Since high school I’ve always wanted a little Honda since most my friends had 90s era Hondas growing up. I’ve driven quite a few from ef with sohc vtec to a GSR dohc vtec. I had some extra cash and decided I wanted a little project car and found something for a great price. I picked up a 98...

    i’ve heard that the jdm d15b is better for boost because of better r/s ratio. i’ve done some research on r/s ratios but i don’t quite understand it. would there be any advantages to building a d15b7 minime with vitaras for boost over a d16a6 vitara mini me, because of the rod ratio, and would...

I plan on swapping a d16y8 head and converting to obd1 in a couple months so I don't want to spend any more money than I have to. Can I use...

    I have a 89 CRX that I am swapping. everything is bolted up right. I kept the old intake manifold so that I didn't have to convert it over to MPFI. I had to do some wiring to get the z6 dizzy to connect. But it still wont start, is there a way to get the old dizzy to bolt on? PLEASE HELP!

    I plan on doing a mini me swap on my 97 ej6, I got the stock y7 block and am trying to figure out if I should go y8 head or z6. Would appreciate some insight on the differences and opinions. I plan on getting it turbo'd later but thats after I get the rest of the car done. Thanks for the help.
