A year ago my 95 ej1 was stolen, ofcourse it happened a mere 2 weeks after a full suspension, steering and brake rebuild/upgrade. We recovered the car about a month later, out in the middle of the desert, dropped into a hole and smashed pretty bad. A few things were stolen, mostly stupid stuff, brake pads, fuses, light bulbs, a couple motor mounts, wheels and tires, a ripped door panel, stereo, ect.

So I got it home and stripped it. sorry I can't find the pictures of how and where it was when I found it, and the video just pixelates so bad its worthless if I compress it enough to attach.
Yes I put ghetto rigged straight axles under it to move it back to the back yard after the initial tear down 馃槀

A few weeks later after some serious digging around I finally found a shell.

It had a bunch of stuff like f&f coilovers, teggy rear discs, fart can exhaust, momo quick disconnect steering wheel, all of which i ripped off and sold, as this is my daily, my kid carrier, and my grocery getter.

Put the ENTIRE suspension setup from the ej1 in, 1.5/1.75" eibach drop springs, KYB struts, spc sliding plate ball joints, lx auto abs drum setup for the rear.

After I got her sitting right I dropped in the motor and trans.

When I tightened the trans mount bolts one of the stud holes sheared off the trans case, so I knew a rebuild of the original trans was in order, but I figured I could limp a while until then, oh my how wrong I was!

So I dug through the junkyard and came upon a clean set of shift forks

And set about rebuilding the trans, with a lot of help from trans ex (a.k.a. mista bone).

Usa standard gear rebuild kit for the s20 b000 case had everything i needed to get it done right,

Was a nice learning experience as I've never been inside a Honda trans before

Either screwed the pooch and bent the shift arm, or it had been bent, not sure as I seated the interlock bolt by hand before torquing it, either way the trans came back apart to replace it with one that wasnt bent. I also got the amount of ultra gray needed figured out on that second try, lmao.

She has been back on the road for a while now, in need of an alignment, but other than that she is running beautifully and is once again a joy to drive, and it only took a year!

Still lots of cosmetic stuff to get into, which knowing my track record with appearance will likely never happen. And some minor mechanical and creature comfort stuff as well, ( alignment, heater core, ac, stereo, weather stripping) which will happen sooner rather than later.

Im sorry about your troubles, but I was dying laughing when you said:

"A few things were stolen, mostly stupid stuff, brake pads, fuses, light bulbs, a couple motor mounts..."

Those fucking crackheads lmao haha. Who trashes a car in a hole, in the desert, then has time to take the brake pads and, not all, but some, motor mounts hahahaha.

Fucking retards hahaha.

That was what tweaked my beak the worst, easily 5k worth in parts, including the ported, port matched, compression bumped and balanced d16z6, all those suspension components that were new and upgraded... they just screwed me for a joy ride and 300 bucks worth of used parts. Tweakers man, too many in the world nowadays.

I think the long periods of sitting have done my injectors in. Going to have to spend money 馃槥

Injectors were fine, my fpr was locked up, 29 psi, lol. 0 fluctuation with or without vacuum applied, I wish my pressure gauge hadn't been destroyed when it was stolen, could have spotted this before I installed the new wideband, lol. Lean condition is gone, fuel mileage is down, but 8 think thats cause I been trying to wear these MC-440s out so I can justify a nice set of new Falken ze 950s
