I have learned much in the last few months (new to EFI), have been reminded of much that hasn't been used in awhile, and applied all of that plus what I did remember to the top end rebuild that is coming to an end.
That pretty paint job you see in my album will stick because of what I learned in ten years of auto body work plus another twenty years of general experience in making paint stick to just about any surface available.
It is a reflection of what I have learned about airflow in 46 years of motorhead experience. I started at the throat of the TB and continued through to the tail of the 4-2-1 header. The best purchase I made for that was a rotary carbide cutter, but I also wore out quite a few 1/2" sanding drums and #220 wet or dry sandpaper (wore out my fingertips with the latter).
By luck of the draw I ended up with a ZC head (bought off a parts hotline). As part of the original purchase, I have a Z6 head with Crower springs and cam, but I'm saving it for my turbo motor. While waiting for parts I did airflow work on that one also.
I named the car ""Swamp Bug", which in my part of the country refers to a crawdad. It was an absolute pleasure to drive and I am looking forward to doing so once again, only now she'll have a little more muscle to play with.
I don't know about making "plugs" in this site, but if it's okay I'll give you the name of a product that is excellent for cleaning rust and steel.
thanks for letting me join.

I figured I should post in here, even though I'm not really a newb persay.... it's just been a while since I owned a Civic. After 6-7 years, I'm finally back into the Civic world again. I sold my old 98 Hatch and went k-series via an RSX. After a rear passenger tire blowout ripped up my rear end...
This site has helped me with a lot, thought I would make an account. Been working on a 94 dx coupe. Almost all stock with a z6 and tranny swap. Saving for better suspension, the passenger side is about a half an inch higher. Here’s some pics of the swap too
