    Hey everyone, just wanted to introduce myself I'm Mike. I relatively new to the Honda scene, but I've done a little bit of homework. I just recently purchased a Honda Del Sol and plan to use the wealth of knowledge here at Hondaswap to help me along the way to building up my Sol.

    The first thing I want to do is get rid of the tail lights that some teenybopper probably put on there. I'm also going to need to fix the damage on the driver side door, from a hit and run at my job's parking garage :(. After a paint job I plan on doing some engine modification, I'm thinking maybe a swap? d16z6? w/turbo a little bit later? or jump to b-series and keep it N/A? I'm open to any suggestions and advice, the car is going to be a DD but I feel the stock model Del Sol is way to slow. What I really want is a bit more power 180-200whp tops and better handling qualities, so basically quick and agile.

    Enjoy the pictures. :)

    The wheels are actually Del Sol Si wheels I purchase for dirt cheap from a local forum, I just did a bit of custom work and the car had clear corners but I didn't really like those all that much so I did a bit of custom work there as well.

    Hi, I'm Mistique... Mike's my buddy... but, he's wrong. A boosted B is 'as great' if not more fun for the street, anyway.... ... ...Welcome to the swap... enjoy your stay... and I hope you have fun with your swap/build/improvements. :D
