Ok everyone my names kurt... and im an alcoholic... whoops wrong place so my names kurt, I live in new england and I just picked up a 88 crx HF for my daily driver. I spent alot of time in the 240sx community, and I have a turbo sohc 240 full suspension/kit/r32 front/ the works as my weekend warrior. Ive probabbly collectively got around 3000 posts on 240 forums. Im on 240 #4, and I have owned a 94 prelude before (SI h23 start/ jdm h22 finish). I have another 240 ive been daily driving but the gas mileage is really painful. I decided to pick this sucker up to get me back and forth with crazy mpg. I actually just bought it last night. 112k miles, engine feels smooth and drives nice, clutch is fresh (but what a pain to drive its finicky!) brakes are completely shot and ALL need to be changed. I really know just about NOTHING on these cars and I have alot of reading and searching to do. Im in the early stages and basically just have the specs and faq info. I plan on modding it out reasonably, nothing distatesful exotic or extreme, doing mods that will add power and nothing that will really comprimise gas mileage on a reasonable budget (as my commuter car this is my main goal to save money not get a new money pit. I already have one thank you) Im well aware that power adders usually kill gas mileage, and I know the best way to save gas is stay off the throttle. I also know this little putt putt needs a bit more get up and go to make sure its safe in case I have to do that accelerate thing people talk about. My plans as of right now: stiffer springs - im not afraid of a harsh ride I DD coilovers, I would rather be lower for better aero and handling get a cheap header for efficiency and weight savings get a generic cone intake strut tower bars probabbly a decent set of plug wires and fresh copper plugs MAYBE get an exhaust, but nothing fart canish or flashy. Something cheap quiet and maybe a little bit larger upgraded harness for the headlights lightening even more - I dont need tons of crap if it just gets me to work so anything heavy and expendable can go. new seats. I LOVED my bb4 94' prelude and im gonna do a bit of reading to see what its taken someone to SUCCESSFULLY install them in a 2nd gen crx and any pitfalls (2 of 3 bolts, seats dont mate with x bucket, sit too high, wont slide, etc) New brakes. Im probabbly gonna get some metal master front brake pads. I very possibly will be doing a rear disk brake conversion if I can pull it off VERY cheaply (read 200$ is not cheap for a 400$ car) I am also going to look at other possible braking upgrades/swaps from other cars while retaining optimal brake distrobution and fitting stock wheels (that means 22 inch 18 piston wilwoods are a wee bit out of the question). Stopping is important to me Is there a page or place somewhere that will show me a list of most of the things that can cross reference with this car? (I.E. integra/s2k/accord/civic/etc. parts that bolt on or work the same without extensive mods) I am not going to ask those of you to spoon feed me, but if anyone has any great links they know of... or any good tips/resoureces/threads/etc to start me off on my venture to freshening up my daily driver a bit that would be greatly appreciate it. Thanks!
