    Woohoo
    Ok so like it says my
    First Honda I traded my 1988 Dodge Raider for a 91 hatch D15b2 120k and how you see it (minus the hole in the block) is how I got it. image.jpg
    Not the prettiest but... image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg
    I saw potential so I took her home from Knoxvile TN back to Blue Ridge GA image.jpg image.jpg image.jpg
    image.jpg Well like I said I blew it up the day I got it legal pulling away from the gas station so now I have this..trans is good and so is the top end may use it for a project motor image.jpg
    So I saved up a little cash and went shopping and eventually found what I think is a good deal after looking at swap choices image.jpg image.jpg D16Z6 with a 5spd and ECU from a DelSol odometer had 204k on it
    I paid $450 for everything
    im in the process of cleaning out my bay and pulling all those horrid loose wires and that ugly tach hanging there haha!

    I know I need to swap to OBD1 and I think if I understand I need to swap from DPFI to MPFI, and do the VTEC wire up right I've read some other threads just trying to cover all my bases and I will keep updating with pics and all as the build continues.

    i know to each his own and all, but man to be honest those cars are a dime a dozen here in the south, you can get one with an almost perfect body for no more than a grand that has a bad engine and one that has a good one for not much more than that, instead of dumping a boat load into that one id just try and get another body.

    Me too if it looks too bad when I get into it I'll find a new body but I'm hopeful so far is there a spot I can buy the harnes swap over

    Yeah, I would probably scrap that hatch or use it for insurance fraud (#notserious) It might be good for some bolts and clips, but 90% of that car is trash.

    Just looked back at the pics, the body and interior are going to kill you. I hope you know how to do body work, I would also check the frame since it looks like it has been hit.

    Seeing them that cheap and rust free really has me thinking I need to get down south with the truck an trailer. Would really like to build another B swapped EF was a fun little car.

    As said before the body work is going to kill you if you plan on "restoring" it. Either way it is a project and will be a good way to learn some new shit.
