I bought this hatch a few months ago because no matter how hard I try, I cant quit the Hondas. I gave up the forums, Honda Tuning subscription, and left our local "scene" but the bug still got me. This hatch needs some love and after I finish my "swap" it will get some. About the car, its a 89 Civic DX Hatch, 262,XXX miles, paid $500 for it with a dead cylinder. Bought it from a kid down the road from my house, push started it and drove it home, white smoke gushing out the whole way. After that it has just sat, not running, waiting for me to bring it back to life...first build jitters are kicking my ass so its taking a bit. I picked up a d16y7 and am doing a bottom end re-gasket, tbelt, water pump, and also got a new clutch & flywheel for the trans. I will be reverting the y7 to run DPFI for awhile in order to save some money and get a little better MPG while im in school. Im slowly gathering parts to freshen up some of the worn out interior and damaged exterior pieces. I have a never ending list of stuff I want to do to this car but am in no hurry and want to enjoy it for what it is. I chose to come back and use this forum for my main build thread on this car because this was my first Honda forum ever and I like it better than my local motorsports/car enthusiest forum full of douche nuggets and elitist pricks. Enjoy and I hope to post weekly updates. When I got it. Parts I picked up so far.
