    well just traded my 93 integra for another rex..
    heres some info..
    89 crx si-has 218k on the body..the motor i think is original..runs really strong..
    car needs paint badly..and some minor rust repair..
    d16a6 which needs new timing belt and valve cover gasket..prolly do water pump and tensioner while im at it..i just pulled the ac(i hate that shit anyway)
    interior is mint other than small rips on the seats and the missing glove box...
    i need to put the spare blower motor in cuz the old one is shot..
    its lowered on groundcontrol sleeves with eibach springs..
    has ebay amber corner lights..everything on the car works..sunroof.windows.locks..
    so my plans are to do all the bodywork..paint it..and turbo it..
    i want to get a spare motor to build for boost..

    oh and the car has 1 problem...previous owner said the starter was fucked but its worked everytime for me...the battery(which looks to be only a couple mnths old) will not hold a charge...i dont know if the alt. is shot or if its the battery..
    but i have n idea that it might be due to the VC leaking..and the oil getting on the starter and draining the battery..the reason i think this is because my racecar had the same problem...i cleaned up the oil..and fixed the leak and it was fine after that..
    so im going to clean it up and hopefully all is well

    2 questions

    1) do you have a license
    2) are any of your cars driveable?

    I have seen you trade 4 or 5 cars. why don't you just build 1 good one and roll with it for a while?

    not really like B, lol. his are all $25k+, drivable, and he keeps them more than a year.

    no offense, but you just keep flipping garbage. you should just liquidate everything. cars, parts, shells, engines etc. get like $2500-$3500 saved up and just buy a b16 crx. they are pretty easy to find.

    So you like the non-vtec underpowered LS, and the exorbitantly expensive top-end ITR...

    And you hate the readily available, reasonably priced b16 and gsr...

    I would still like to have a basic EG Si hatch with a GSR. Just the right amount of motor to make a little stockish fun runner.

    Sorry but I don't see you ever having the money for anything other than sohc engines if you keep up this cycle of trading crap for crap lol.

    an eg with gsr and i/h/e is probably my favorite honda. (aside from the obvious nsx, etc)

    sometimes you just have to overlook a "favorite car" and see what is reasonable.

    what do you mean by i wont have the money for anything other than sohc??
    maybe you didnt see my old ls swapped crx that i bought everything for???
    im staying sohc because its differant in my area and i have a point to prove to some ppl..
    i dont like gsr because that is the motor damn near everyone uses here..and i dont like b16 because i never have..b16 tranny and b16 head are all thats good for me..
    but anyway i posted the car so ppl could see progress.not for shit talking..so back on topic

    Sorry if it seemed like I was just busting your balls. Obviously you'll do whatever you want with the car, so just forget I said anything.

    sorry dude, we aren't trying to talk shit. we are old and experienced with hondas. just trying to help you out with some ideas. maybe you go and build your dream car, maybe you like our ideas and go that route.

    we aren't going to tell you something to throw you off track, we just speak from a lot of experience.

    Just make sure you fix the rust, and fix it properly, if this is a long-term car. That's the only thing I'm a hardass about, is rust.

    I don't understand how you even get to own cars without a license. Do you just have your parents title them or what? Whenever I've bought a car I had to show my license when I go to the DMV to turn the old title in and apply for a new one...
