    Hi Honda Swap!


    I'm Linzi and I'm new here, I didn't see an intro sub forum (feel free to redirect me though) so I figured I'd post here! I am the owner of 2 Civics, an FG1 that is my daily pretty gas sipper, and an EJ1 which is my project baby that ill be picking up a K24 for in 2wks.

    Basically I'm here to learn, and be a part of the community!

    Here are some pictures:

    God I spend too much time on here. Just noticed I posted in here less than 10 minutes after she started the thread.

    This is why there are only 4 women on the board, and they only check in once every six months.

    i'm going with the theory that it's because girls, hot ones especially, are not interested in cars, and if they are, they are not interested in Honda's because their boyfriends bought them BMW's

    again...just a theory

    That took a LONG time, I was about to say "really?? No tits or gtfo?"


    They are CCW LM5T's, first set on an eg/ej that I know of. They are similar to Rotiform TMB's but I have never seen those on an older civic. 16X8 +25, here's a side shot:

    Your theory..... is probably pretty accurate.

    She's intelligent too? A properly phrased and formatted sentence always gets me excited :p.

    So you appear to be from Texas, what's your story Linzi?

    Haha, thanks. I am originally from Colorado, grew up in a body shop, tore apart my first car at 15 (1973 Datsun Z) but it was sold out from under me. After that I kind of lost my passion for it. Once I moved to Texas I wrecked my car and had the opportunity to buy a Civic which I had wanted for a while. Bought the FG1, totally overpaid for a car that has serious rust issues, and was heavily abused by the previous owner.

    After breaking so many bolts and threatening to sacrifice my car I decided it was time to pick up a project car. Found Big Red on the list, bought her at 1am in a sketchy neighborhood totally riced out and ever since I've been bringing her back to life. Right now she is in need of some serious work just to get her running properly with her current D16z6 but I am really rusty on driving stick so I need to get that motor running and drive on it consistently before I swap.

    Any questions besides TOGTFO?
