Figured I would post up my build process of my 98 Civic Hx EJ7. I have had this car for 3-4 years now, picked it up from a good friend for $1000 cash bone stock with some minor body damage. He hit a cow and trashed the hood passenger head light, fender, door and mirror. It was well taken care of but needed some TLC. I replaced the hood with an unpainted primer hood, JDM style smoked head lights and a new side mirror, stil rocking the faded hood and dented door and fender, yea. As I said bought it bone stock but quickly added an AEM CAI to the D16Y5 Vtec E motor and started researching turbos for the single cam. An axle back followed shortly after. After doning a bunch of research on the Y5 motor and finding it was useless are a tuner motor I got this for $800 long block with 60K axles, trans, harness and ECU After I did the swap, fully OBD2 functional and legal swap with no issues. Used a 98 Civic Dx harness the Hx harness was a pain to rewire and a OBD2 P75 ECU. Lowered it on cheap coilovers that I hated After tunning on Hondata the B18B1 made That kept me happy for a while but I had always wanted to have a DOHC Vtec motor having built many in the past for customers it got me wanting one for years. So this started to happen B16 head fully rebuilt with all OE parts and 3 angel valve job. H22 Type S LMA with custom shims went it Hey what happened to my head?! and a day later Then it was back to the dyno to get retuned for Vtec Tim at SRD doing the magic tune And the results are in Here is what she looks like today, now lowered on Eibach and GR2.
