Whats up, Im the new guy here.. I recently bought a wrecked 98 civic hatchback from a guy, who also has a 97 Del Sol that needed some minor work. I ended up getting the Civic for $500, and my repairing a few things on the Del Sol. As it turned out, the Del Sol was not what I was expecting to see.. it was completly modified front to rear. I fell in love with this thing, and have decided to build one for myself. So Im starting a new Del Sol project. I located a 95 SI in the area at a decent price (asking $2200.00). Im fairly sure I will buy it this weekend. This is all new to me, as I have been a muscle car guy at heart all my life (Camaro, Firebird, Corvette) After repairing the clutch on the guys Del Sol (Slave cylinder was shot, and hydraulic lines were sucking in water/debris, not to mention the massive abuse it took from slamming the clutch pedal all the time), I took the thing for a drive.... I have never experienced anything like it in my life. So, here I am. My question to start off with is, What motor would you guys go with? The one I am looking at has the original SI motor.. 1.6 liter.. Im not sure yet on the exact model engine. At this point I am looking into some VTEC options. Feedback? Here are some pics of the guys Del Sol, and the Civic I got from him. (the rims on the civic are temp. and make it look even worse) Index of /img Thanks, and yes.. Im fairly ignorant to honda engines right now, but I am reading more and more on them every day.. Im HOOKED!
