Hi all, figured I've lurked around other peoples build threads enough now, and I am ready to get on with my own.

My goal is 300-330whp and 12's, but I wouldn't complain about 11's.

The car:
1991 civic dx hatch


Updated, Got a new car to put the motor into. 1993 civic lx 4 door.


Build idea:

Bottom end:

Freshly bored 75.5mm A6 bottom end
FJ custom length rods
75.5mm Vitara pistons
Fresh rebuild with all new bearings and gaskets.
ported oil pump

Head:

Stock for now, just freshened up.

Induction supplements:

Cast manifold
Garrett t3/t4 57 trim
Tial 38mm gate
Tial 50mm BOV

Drivetrain:

Competition Clutch stage 4 clutch.
Si Transmission (stock internally)

Engine Management:

software TBD
Wideband
WOT dyno tuning followed by street tuning

I don't have a garage, but I have a little workshop area in the basement of my place and I do what I can there. I intend to do as much of the work as possible, having tacked numerous engine swaps, head swaps, timing belt jobs and countless oil changes I am willing to take the next step and build my very own bottom end.

Here is the way I bought the sohc zc I will be using for the build, if you look hard you'll notice it was being run dpfi got it from a guy with a crx dx for 150 after he did a gsr swap.



Stay Tuned.

Yeah EDs are lighter and TBH I like the exterior better, but everything is easier on an EH and the interior is a little more modern.

robscrx: Thanks man

Sentry: Thanks for the offer, I do hope I get it built for some runs at race city. I have been collecting parts for a bit now, so getting it together is a priority.

si-hatch: Wouldn't sell the 91, would just keep it n/a and do a high comp d15b7 w/cam. I love the ED chassis, used to have an 89 si hatch with a b16.


It was good fun, made 154/109 to the wheels.

Here is some progress from this week, got it done before I posted the thread but I'll put the pics up for you guys.

I was dirty and didn't get any pics during teardown but this is what my a6 block looks like now.




This is the worst of the main bearings, what do you guys think? Hows it look?


Next up is notching it, I better get to work!

Little more material removed here.


A look at one I feel is good enough to call finished.
