This engine was fully built by a respectable tuning shop over here,its more a case of me buying something thats very reliable. its costing me just under 1500 USD,but overe here d-series turbos are near enough never seen!

you buying all the parts your using to build a car. unless your making them from scratch
Ha i mean as in everything already done. first I wouldnt know if it was all done right because i wasnt there. Second it takes he fun out of building something yourself.

$1,500 isnt bad if you trust the people who did the motor then go for it.

That is all good as long as you trust the builders and can take a 1500 dollar chance, without being hurt over the motor if it doesn't last. Also you need to worry about your tune, because everything changes the tune when you take it elsewhere. Ambient temp, baro pressure, ect. I had a car that wad tuned in Seattle and here in Arkansas it woul not run right until re-tuned.

Thanks for your input "corvettking".

It should be fine as where the car was tuned is the same weather wise etc.

Its a full "tial" turbo setup,im guessing this would bolt onto any other d-series,....such as a d16z6? Ofcourse it would need re-tuned but id just like to know i have a safety net if this motor goes pop!

These pictures might work...






The ek3 is obd2a but my facelift civic is obd2b,because it is running hondata this means it allready has an obd2a-obd1 wiring harness,does this mean that all i have to do is change the wiring harness out for an obd2b-obd1 harness?

There is a significant helping of fail in those pictures. Like for instance the 10 inch long coupler, all the worm-gear hose clamps, breather filter, flux welded downpipe and dump tube, and all the rice parts.

Im certain that getting a go-autoworks cast manifold kit would be a much better investment towards a well sorted setup.

It is a full size koyo radiator from a DC2,its massive. The car has done 10,000 miles with this radiator.

As for the manifold setup,i think it looks terrible,this would promplty be changed for a custon SS setup.

Any idea's about the OBD harness issue?
