I'm sure no of you reallt car, but this for some reason is the first car I've been really excited about working on in a long time....even more than my TSX. Anyhow without further adue......

    92 Civic CX hatch
    100% stock (except replaced Cat and aftermarket tape/cd changer.
    254 k on car.

    the only thing I have done so far is wash, scrape old bubbled tint off and throw my new rotas I had laying around for my rex.

    Looking for suggestions on where to go with this one. I want to keep it very OEM (5 lug conversion, type r seats, etc....also want to get it BAR tested in Cali with a crate type r motor, with AC and PS.

    I know, I have a CX, it needs a swap so bad. I did get it to do 102 today on my way to work.

    You got a deal though that's a great car for that price.

    can't complain at all about the price. specially the shape of the body and paint. It still blows me away. my good buddy just bought a 92 hatch (si mind you) and still paid 4k and the paint is toast with a lot of dents/sratches. I feel luycky tro have found this.

    Well, i like the B18c5 idea . . . . with that motor and basic boltons you will triple the horsepower of the car (from 70 to 210) . . . . and that would be sick.

    Matt that hatch is begging for a turbo setup :D

    If you decide to go that route and want some help just let me know.
    Bring it to the next HS Cali BBQ.

    Looks really clean and for only 2k, that's a good deal. :thumbsup:

    where here's the deal. I don't want a car that I have to worry about smogging evry 2 years and changeing shit around. This is also sort of a project car for my girlie. I'm either want to do a ITR stock with working AC and such or build up a 95 si motor and get the edelbrock kit. Trust me, I would love to go boosted....

    Matt - The hatch looks clean you definitely need to bring that to the HS BBQ.
    I will put in my .02 and say go with a H22 all motor setup (I had to change it up a bit).

    BUT an itr swap will be kleen, and thats ur goal right? Just do the ITR swap basic boltonz, and see what happends. . . .besides, the only thing you have to sell off is the header if you do decide that tripleing the HP of the car is not enough lol.

    I paid 800 for mine. I think I got a great deal on it. Although it did/does have it's problems. Front end was faded, a little wax cured that up nicely. Some minor rust on the QP's (now repaired). Driver seat severly worn and the cup holder broken (gonna get that jdm tape holder thing). And the interior is extremely dirty (nothing a nice cleaning can solve). There is a nice sized dent in the passenger side (it looks easily removeable). I have some pics of when I first got it but they're pretty shitty. I'll take some better pics one of these days.
