So, The time has come to start competing. Last year I did not do enough events with NASA to continue instructing with them; so I decided to start Time Trials and eventually Honda Challenge. The car has seen a lot of track time. I have old stuff that needs to be replaced; like: Tien HA coilovers - I need something more serious... ATS LSD - Needs to be rebuilt; moving to a KAAZ instead. This diff will be for sale (for a DC2) Toyo RA1's - They don't make them anymore and I want something a little faster. OEM B16A3 - Has been a good motor; with CTR cams it made 174whp. It has 180k miles on it, 10k of which is probably track only miles. So; what am I doing now? I have been on a shopping spree gathering parts for the overhaul. Some stuff I've had for literally years; like the engine. It has been semi-built for 3 years now; its time to finish it and put it in... JRZ RS - new coilover I'm getting, with Eibach ERS springs and pillow mounts. Not sure on spring rate yet; I'll be doing some testing to figure that out with different rates. KAAZ LSD - Figure everyone in HC is using this for a reason and my ATS needs to be rebuilt anyways; might as well move on. Hankook z214's 225/45/15 - Stepping up in tire; along with size (from a 205) B18C5 - With CTR pistons and Blox HSL cams. HANS Device - I needed one anyways.. The coilover decision was a big one. I was going to go Koni 3011's but Andrie from PRIMA RACING | Home Page suggested I look at the JRZ instead. A little more cost for a lot more performance; why not.. Here are the pictures of the car as it sits today; with its recent MAACO paint job. I'll keep updating as I start getting work done. Next weekend the suspension is coming off and the motor is coming out. Tune on B16. Had a hole in the block here near the squirter; welded back up. The hole before fix.. Brake ducting Remote oil filter mount, for oil cooler: *OLD Pics updated 04/25/10 Nice guage mount I made. B16B pistons in B18C5 block. *NEW Pics added 10/25/10 Rear trailing arm removed.. this took forever because of the compensator arm. Bastard of a compensating arm. I need to cut this out now that I got it to back out some.. Frozen to the bushing. Getting ready to pull the head for head work. Notice the white shit on the heads of the bolts in the oil; condensation/water. I think this is from my catch can that vents to atmosphere with no filter. Suggestions?? Cams out, everything disconnected.. No head. Is this ok for the exhaust valves? Update 06/07/10 Cut that compensting arm out finally: The bolt aftermath... Double adjustable JRZ RS with modified Tien top hats. Rebound adjustment on the bottom: Installed with new LCA with sphericals. Another angle. Looks like I need to space out the end link so it is not at such an agressive angle. Rebound adjustment for the rear's 06/20/10 I got the engine almost completely complete! Checked P2V clearances and even at full range on the cam gears there was no contact with the piston with vtec lobes engaged. Also got my rear trailing arm sphericals installed. 12/08/10 pics here. http://hondaswap.com/civic-del-sol-...sol-overhaul-thread-499811/3.html#post1667892 Will update with more later!
