    Well this wednesday i picked up my new car, a 90 civic si with a B16 SiR. I had some problems with getting spark, but thats all fixed now and its running like a champ. :edit: it also has the Y1 tranny w/LSD :D

    The car itself is a bone-stock 1990 civic si with a b16a swap from jaydm.com (bought this unfinished from a friend). The only add ons it has are an ebay intake, a thermal 2.5" cat back, and clutch specialties stage 2 clutch(For now :ph34r: )

    Welp enough of this on with the pics.....

    Very nice! Now get a decent header on there to finish opening up your air pathway, then throw the battery in the spare tire well.

    it has the stock looking PGM-FI on it?? you just cant see it with the glare

    my GC coilovers and KYB AGX's should be in tommorow or tuesday... ill post some pics before /after when i get em on next weekend B)

    where its parked at school my sophisticated security system consists of no ecu. Plus all thats in the interior now is the door panels, seats, and some 4 dollar walmart floormats so it doesnt look to promising for a would be theif. The carpets were damn nasty and soaking wet underneath, theys melled like something crawled underneath 'em and died.

    also, you cant see in the pics i got a lonely 1st gen crx wheel on the passenger rear, so if anyone has 3 and wants this one let me know lol i got a set of matching 14" steelies im putting on the back till i can find some nice teg/si wheels to put on.

    put on the GC's and AGX's today, and found out where my "little" oil leak was comming from- my oil pan gasket- so theres a new one of them goin on tommorrow. I'll post some pics of the new suspension tommorow when i get it on my computer.

    Also ill prolly make a write up on the change of an oil pan gasket bc we dont have one, so pics to follow and a write up in the general tech section about changing the oil pan gasket.......... B)

    Welp i finally got some pics of my new suspension up, so here they are. I went with the KYB AGX's and GC coilovers, i like the ride and the adjustability on the AGX's, def. happy with the purchase welp enough of that on with the pics......

    To start off id like to thank my good friends at napa for comming up with Anti-Seize so when i have to pull all of this shit off again for some ungodly reason, it wont be rusted together

    [​IMG]
    random parts laying all over my garage(sorry for the piss poor quality of this pic, i dunno what happened, i must moved when i took it) Also notice the new radius rod about to go on because the crank pully pretty much ate threw the one on my car because of the weak sauce stock struts
