Just joined, frequent reader. Please be patient as this is a DD and 1 of 2 projects I am slowly working on, I will add more pics and info as I upgrade. I hope it's worth the look, and please don't make negative comments if you don't like it (you don't have to, your car probably doesn't float my boat either...lol).

I have a 1990 Honda Civic STD (Canada Manuf.). It has an OBD1 D15B VTEC with a 93 Del Sol Si 5spd, Rywire Harness to a P28 Chipped w/ P08 base, F&F Type1, Function7 RLCA, OEM 19MM Front Sway, OEM 15MM Rear Sway (Prethreaded, thank you Canada!), wheels, exhaust, and intake are from eBay (flame on, :gayfight2: Ha).

Things I've Changed/Replaced/Repaired/Trashed:

1991 Civic Sedan LX Cluster (Changed over factory Speedo/Odo)
Digital Clock
ED/EF/EE Si Throttle Cable
Rear Hatch Light
Removed rear carpeting from seats due to mold
Red Rear Center Garnish
Removed A/C Components (minus control panel, compressor wasn't connected when purchased)
Wrinkle Black Valve Cover with Brushed Letters (DIY)
Screwed on a VW Jetta Lip (Smaller Version)
2500K Hi Beams (NON HID)

Plans for the car:

Convert to 88-89 front bumper (Has 89 Rear)
Remove Side Moldings and Fill Holes
J's Style Wing (TNA 1-Piece)
Repaint OE Color
Thermal R&D CL Catback or Tanabe Medalion

Overall, wanting to build a fun little DD/Weekend Spirited Driver. Looking to get about 150+whp N/A. - Need advice and tech help for many questions.

I don't get out and socialize much anyore. I've been working late nights 6 days a week. I've probably seen cars around and would probably recognize those before names. lol

I try, I'm basically trying to build a car to prove a power to weight ratio argument... And I'm honestly tired of the K/B/H hype these days. After taking a few physics classes in college, the concept of reducing rotational mass plus already having less overall work to perform, a D15/16 just seemed fitting for this car.

Welcome to DSO. I am interested in your Infinity and Civic builds equally. Please post more of both. We are into more then just D series engines, and cars for that matter. It is more about the process and thinking involved. No more niceties. Moar pics!

I like the G35 always have but not in my heel house, I am a sedan fan. Wanted to make a gt350 four door for a bit now, I like what you did here so far. Thanks for the share.
