Definitely the first time I've ever heard of someone doing that... no, wait, that's what the PO did to the Sol that I bought for my daughter before he offered it up for sale (it did start it's life as an S model, though, so it just went back to it's original state). Can't say as I've heard of someone doing it with the intention of keeping it, though. :saddam:

Its not my fault when i got it it didnt run and i couldnt get the parts to get it running. It had new headgaskets and was half open so i imangined poor work and warped head so found another del sol on craigslist about 3 hrs away and got it and that one ran so swapped it. If i woulda known it was built of course i would have kept it and went to different cities to find the parts but too late for would haves so gotta stick with this z6. It runs pretty good so not really dissapointed but when the guy that bought it called me and i heard it run it hurt... It was fully built with toda vtec killer cams

General Tech? This thread should be in the showcase section? Im not a fan of making things slower no matter what it takes to get it running again.

Live and learn with the motor man, gl with build.

Yea i hear ya but i was kinda in a pickle anyways. If i wouldnt have found the black honda for a donor then i would have just ended up scrapping it since i run a v8 so i woulda just lost a couple hundred and moved on. Atkeast its safe lol

It's a damn shame all the way around, but at least this way it's still going to be on the road instead of in the junkyard. Given the number of Sols in various locations being stolen lately, every one that ends up being rescued is one less step closer to their extinction.

I have no complaints about my D16Z6 other than the seemingly endless supply of oil leaks. Every time I fix one, another shows up in a different location! I guess that's the problem with having an engine coming up on 244k miles, but sooner or later I'll have replaced all of the gaskets and finally stop these sneaky leaks. Of course, I'm driving it more for fuel economy than for power- I've still got the DSMs for playtime.

Thanks for moving to rite section just thought itd be general like on honda tech. Cleaned the civics engine today but gotta finish tomorrow. What would happen if i take the ps pump from the d16 and plug up the lines like cap em off? I dont care for ps and could use the pump on the d15. I know i gotta change the bracket onto the d15 for it to work. Ps on a honda is pointless ive driven trucks without ps so a honda with no ps is like having ps on my tahoe lol

not bad looking, at least better than the actual ek fascia op's ride has.

anyway, i would prefer the proper delsol fascia, but it's up to him to do whatever he thinks it's proper. ;)
