    Well Guys I Think Its Time To Post. I want to keep a log going and get people's input. Okay so its an 1988 Crx Si, Black in color and gutted to the core :). It head a blowed head gasket when i bought it. I have since sent the head off, i am cleaning the engine and draining all fuilds. New Oil, Coolant, Plugs, Timing Belt, Water Pump, And thermostat. I have order 2 goodies so far, a new steering wheel and JDM black lights. Any way guys i will keep you posted i have order all the parts i need and i am waiting on them i will get started soon and hope to have it all done and running b4 my g/f gets out of school in less then 4 weeks. I also have two sturt bar in my car. Other things i plan to wire the fans to come on when i turn on the key. i also plan later for a full out roll cage

    i wish you luck on this....lol finding parts for my 3g civic is a bitch in australia....
    The websites ive seen are just way to outta ma budget :( and junkyards here with 3g parts ur kidding even 4g parts are almost impossible to source

    lol if i were you to make it look more sleeper (providing your street racing) is get it sprayed and every time u going for a race go throw some mud on it....if you want to go to extremes like my friend and i went and got some garden tools and stab the car :huh: or even a baseball bat worked well as we found out ^_^ but it works wen he kills skylines

    Cool "keep on trucki'n"
    My way of saying stay focused, alot of my projects end up getting put off or ended. Due to my lazy ass not staying focused on what needs to be done.

    Timing a sohc isn't terribly difficult, but without the crank holding tool breaking the pulley bolt can be a chore (d16z6)...I don't know if this needs it. Invest in the tool if it does...I've done it both ways and it's well worth the extra 70 bucks.

    I would say yes...but it's not for certain. I would imagine the crank pulley to be similar in construction and you will need it to break the bolt loose in order to change the timing belt.
