Hey, I'm Paddy and I drive a white '94 Civic DX coupe. Mostly clean, some hail damage to the trunk and a slight impact on the right rear quarter. No Honda rot, though! Big plans for this one, but for now I'm starting with a Y8 mini me build, and an Integra rear end swap. The mini me is more to fix some issues I've been having and get some power gains while I'm at it. I'm burning oil like mad, and that's after a full upper gasket kit, including valve seals. Compression is 185 psi across all four cylinders, so I'm guessing it isn't rings and I was too hasty with my valve and guide inspection, but to be safe, I'm going to re-ring my pistons while I've got the head off for the swap. Oh, and my plugs are seized in my head on top of it all lol.

Anyways, I've turned to D-Series.org many many many times in the past for some how-to, troubleshooting and a little bit of V-tech porn. Figured I might as well make myself official instead of just stalking around all the time.

Builds so good to look at that they might as well be porn.

Speaking of which, scored my y8 head, intake and throttle body today. Immaculate condition. Had to pull a v-tec solenoid from another tore up ex because the one I pulled was missing it's solenoid. It's in a little rougher shape and I may end up having to buy one new. Any suggestions?


Annnnnd I get it now. Rofl. Pretty sure I'm halfway retarded sometimes.

I have an all motor K24...its decent.

If it looks like crap just have blasted with walnut shells.

And future reference its VTEC not V-tech, they makes electronics.

BTW - I do not want a boosted B or an NA K, I want an NA B18 and a boosted D. I also like long walks on the beach and smoking mad spliffs while popping one sided vtec like it is NOS.

Nah not really my car is low, slow, and ready to blow, trannys that is.

Got pics of your tepid beast? Not a dick joke, just wanna see the car.

Had some pics from when I bought the car, but the phone they were on is history now. Haven't had any reason to take any new ones in awhile.

The vtec / v-tech stupidity above was just that, stupidity. Plus a combination of drunkeness and spell check. If you think about it, though, vtec is a shitty acronym. It's missing a few letters.

Only thing holding me back from the y8 mini now is saving up for the gasket kit and tracking down a megasquirt 2 because tuning. Head I pulled is in amazing shape. Can't wait to have it up and running.

Jeez, i havent heard the term megasquirt in years!

Theres 2 decent software programs that have stepped up their game for hondas.

Hondata and NepTune


Crome is still free. And you get what you pay for

Hondata is definitely not below me. Would go with it any day given the funding to buy it right out, and the knowledge to install it and pull a good tune out of it in as little time as possible. Going with MS because the guy I build with is stupid familiar with it. He runs MS2 on his 2GNT Eclipse and is upgrading to MS3 for the 2.4 turbo swap we're getting ready to do, so I'm probably gonna come away with his MS2 for stupid cheap.


Edit: As a side note, I got around to tearing the vtec solenoid apart and it looks good internally. Might just get away with a new cover (current one is super rusted - bad for looks and I trust no rust), clips and wiring.

Lol I'm sure I won't live it down, but I deserve it. Appreciate the welcome. At the very least I won't get any dirt kicked at me for rolling an H badge down the road on here.

Sidebar: any DSO decals floating around?

Oh ouch, very ouch.


Oh by the way, I don't have any good or bad jokes because most of my jokes make absolutely ZERO sense. :bigok:


EDIT- Yes I think the DSO sticker still flying around here but I forgot who sell em, I'm not too sure if it was PATA or something like that?
