    Well I finished my swap. It took me about a week. I did all of the work by myself. Started first time. Only threw one code. Fixed that after a couple days. Now I'm just trying to get rid of the D15b7, trans, and p06 ecu. $100 for all of it.

    It runs pretty strong. I want to get an intake for it eventually though. Now I just need to put my new RT-615s on.

    It feels a little faster than my D15b7. Keep in mind I've been driving my Dad's 01' Suburban around for about the last 2 months, that's got about 300hp/300ft/lbs. So going back to a Civic is a pretty big change in power... it's a little hard to judge. I'm happy with the power... for now. I'd always wanted to put in a B18c1 or B18b1, but that's too rich for my blood. I'm just a poor college student.

    where are you going to school?

    and don't worry about the car, i drove plenty of hondas and nissans while in school. once you get done, you can get something nice.

    Just a community college, I was a little late to register so I didn't get my pick of classes. I just wanted to get started. My goal is to get an engineering degree of some sort. Mechanical I'm hoping.

    the key here is to get a really good gpa. when you apply for other schools to finish your degree, it will become crucial. the better the gpa, the better your chances.

    There are a lot of good colleges in your area. Be sure to take advantage.

    I'm in Everett, just north of Seattle. I dunno... I hadn't really considered it. Any idea what the forecast is?

    I should also mention that Brittany either helped me or gave me company the entire time I worked on my car. So I didn't do it entirely alone. My Dad helped during the motor take out and drop in part as well.

    Just slowly put together a nice junkyard turbo setup. 200whp in an EG chassis is pretty damn fast.

    Nice swap! I was thinking about keeping my del Sol a single cam, but I need torque :imgone:

    I'm setting myself a goal to swap my Z6 for a B20Vtec in about 2-3 months :)

    Also you should paint the valve cover to add a nice little touch to it.
