My EJ1 has been through a lot since I got it in 2006.




IT was supercharged...



Turboed...



I blew the ring lands on cylinder #3. parted it out. Now I'm building a high compression B18B1. Going to convert to vtec later down the road. Also doing a complete tuck and shave job on the bay.

The build is as follows:

B18B1 block:

81.5mm PR3 teflon coated pistons
complete balance from flywheel to crank pulley
shotpeened rods with arp bolts
ARP head studs
ACL race bearings
all new seals & gaskets
polished crank
GSR water pump
GSR timing belt

HEAD:

stock P75 head (same as B18B1)
resurfaced and checked

LS transmission:

new synchros
new bearings
new seals

OBD1 P72 ECU Stock for now
going to chip it and run on crome

MISC:
welded OEM mounts
Integra full aluminum dual core radiator with dual slim fans
silicone radiator hoses
2.5" mandrel bent exhaust with 18" louvered resonator and magnaflow performance XL muffler
DC header

Suspension:
PIC full coilovers
skunk2 pro series front camber kit
rear disc conversion


Engine Bay:

brake line tuck
steel braided clutch line
billet clutch reservoir
fuel line tuck
wiring harness tuck with MIL Spec connector
fill and smooth all unnecessary holes
paint concrete gray
battery relocated to trunk
fuse box relocated to glove box

So far the block is at the machine shop with everything they need to get it done. I should head from them some time next week. I've been working on the engine bay in the meantime. removing the interior, climate control boxes, brake lines, fuel filter and lines, clutch lines, wiring. Welding and grinding holes in the bay. here's my progress so far...

Lol, very nice. You're the definitive guru on EJ1 power options. All you missed was nitrous for the full cycle. Looking good. I'm interested in seeing this tucked,shaved,b-series project.

I woukd also start sanding and smoothing the ports in the head. Since the p75 is the worst flowi g head, anything will help it flow. Just leave the first 1/2" of the ports close to stock as possible.

Dont leave a sharp edge where the split is. But grind down and smooth whatever you can.

The d15b jrsc setup was a lot of fun. Never had any problems. I only sold it to buy a wedding ring. Higher compression under that blower would have been sweet!

I havent finished anything but definitely going to put some teflon on the fittings.

As far as the p75 head its exactly the same as the pr4. Not going to put any work into something i plan to swap out later.

I got a lot of work done on the transmission. Cleaned everything up really well and installed the new final drive gear set. I havent mentioned it but the ls trans had a 10mm bolt bouncing around the inside of the casing. Took out a tooth on both final drive gears and trashed a diff. Bearing. One synchro is pretty bad going to replace it. All new seals and run it. I will probably find a gsr trans later.

I also removed the nipple fitting on the clutch master cylinder then drilled and tapped it to 1/8" NPT. I'm going to install a male to male fitting.



I plan to get a billet reservoir from a motorcycle. remove the nipple fitting and plug it. then drill and tap the bottom where the screw is to 1/8" NPT so it will thread onto the master cylinder.

Yes sir! If you don't want to extend your own odb welding werks sells prefabbed ones that you can weld in. You may think they won't crack. I promise you they will. And it'll piss you off lol
