    Hi guys, wow time flys, i was last here on this site back in sept 07 asking for advice on building a turbo honda. well i ended up getting a 90 CRX Si , it was a little rough but she is all better now. The motor is a D16ZC block and a D16Z6 head, the head is stock just all freshened up, I used scat rods and SRP pistons, ARP fasteners threw out, cometic head gasket and the rest is OEM honda. my turbo set up is all hand made, using a big 16 g turbo and greddy blow off valve and a medium sized bar and plate intercooler. the current tranny is a 90 si one that i replaced a broken fork in and it works perfect, however i have a 89 si tranny out getting rebuilt and a quaffe put in along with a slightly taller 5th gear. here are a few pics of the progress of the car since i was last here. and i will also post some videos from the track. thanks for looking in and if you have any questions just ask.

    It took a while but i located enough Si seats and other parts to make the interior mint.

    and now for some videos, my best ET so far this year was not captured on video. it was a 12.3 at 116 , i have a new turbo from slow boy racing on the way and next week i go get retuned, i hope to be in the high 11s then.

    +1 for building a clean CRX, on top of that it looks like you built a nice turbo kit which I can't say most do. So many people attempt budget builds and skimp out on so much, yours came out beautiful. + rep 4 u

    much to my wallet and wifes dismay not much skimping was done, more so on the really important stuff, some stuff is skimped on like my catch can is home made pvc pipe from lowes, but the important stuff i made sure to do it right the first time. thanks for looking in :)

    i have been to maple grove its pretty nice, but beaver is my home track and i am in the points there so i cant miss any races if i want a chance at a winning or doing well in the points chase :) besides 2 hours isnt bad we have guys that drive twice that every weekend to come race. ;) let me know if you would want to come to a honda meet on june 7th or the 21st, the 2 dates are being voted on right now on d series.org i can let yah know which date wins if any one here wants to come to.

    yeah i hear that, well what we are doing to help is we chose dates that are on Saturdays, and both are around noon or later events, that way we can get there and relax with plenty of time to cool the cars off, then we planned on having a bon fire and cooking food and drinking beer in the evening after the races and those that want to can camp over at the track into Sunday and drive home refreshed or race Sunday whichever they want. but thats getting off topic :) either way thanks for looking in PM me if your interested , the same goes for any one else in or near PA who may want to hang out.
