    so i just bought a project car

    i got a 95 civic dx with a d16z6 swap
    owner said he added:
    -performance intake manifold
    -looks like a bigger fuel rail
    -cam
    -reactive headers (they r on there i can see that)
    -high flow cat
    -3" pipes to a apexi muffler
    -lsd auto tranny
    - and all the interior is pretty much gutted, no ac
    -all mods done by owner, who is a chevy mechanic :eek:


    but my problem is....this thing doesnt move like it should

    anyone recomend any shops around raleigh NC that could tune this thing to be
    better without throwing a manual tranny and turbo on this thing?

    and i will post of pix of this machine in a while

    this is my first post. i love the forum lots a great info
    thanks in advance for any help

    lol, welcomw to hondaswap, and congradulations on posting your first thread in the wrong forum.

    use google to find a shop. go to maps and type in performance shop, raleigh nc.

    replace the trunk.
    and dont believe him about the cam, good rule of thumb, if they cant prove it, dont believe it.

    why does the engine look crooked?
    and do they make an auto lsd?

    the bodys not that bad. just replace the trunk and front bumpercover, fix the passengerside shave job and make the driverside match.
    it'll be decent.

    -performance intake manifold --- looks like the stock intake D16Z6 manifold to me
    -looks like a bigger fuel rail --- again, its stock
    -cam --- bullshit
    -reactive headers (they r on there i can see that) --- yes, they are there, but they suck
    -high flow cat --- bullshit
    -3" pipes to a apexi muffler --- bullshit, with a side of whats the F'n point, the ractive header has at best a 2.25 outlet, also a 3" exhaust on a NA car will fucking kill any sort of power you might think about having
    -lsd auto tranny --- BULLSHIT,

    Everything about this sucks.

    I've seen people spend hard earned money on cars that should be given away freely.

    Stare at the far left top header stud and let your eyes drift in and out of focus, I swear to god the image starts warping. Sweet Jesus save my soul.

    you should clean up the outside first. not because it's ugly, but because it's going to catch attention from cops. that thing will get you in trouble.
