Hey all.. Just wondering if I could get some opinions on building up a 91' LX. It's all stock, except for the CAI. I'm wanting to swap in a DOHC ZC, 5spd transmission, and possible putting on a jackson sc... Just to say I'm not looking to make a beast out of it :D. As much as I would like to.. Highschool still getting in the way of having anything more than part time work... Alrighty.. Thanks all for your time..

ooo a huskie...cool...as far as ideas, since youre still in high school, and i know how hard it is to build a car in high school, i would suggest conecntrating on just bolt on's...start with the basics, intake header and exhaust, and that would actually help since youre planning on going s/c...maybe a clutch and flywheel too if you can

Yeah... I'm just mainly looking for people's experiences with their ZC swaps... Plus where I could get a good motor/transmission/ecu combo.. I need to go down to HAP and see if they have anything, but online I found them running around the $800's.

A dohc swap would be a definate sleeper. If your DPFI you'll need to do a MPFI conversion unless your combo comes with a complete harness. A D16A1 swap would be cheaper/ the same. Just buy a crashed 88-89 teg, swap everything over and toss in the zc cams to make up the hp difference.

here's what you do. On a weekend, since you probably use the car for school commuting...

DPFI to MPFI conversion, if you want to, snag a delta cam (262 or 272) and an adjustable cam gear.

That will keep you busy for a weekend and will be the best upgrade other than a turbo that you can do to your car right now.
