    Gimme a little insight into your setups on your projects.

    what car do you have?

    what engine swap (if any) did you do?

    what kind of engine/suspension/drivetrain modifications did you have done?

    what times you have run with this setup?

    and most importantly how much (rough estimates are welcome) did you spend to achieve the times?


    mods if this would be suited better in another forum go ahead and move it at your leisure.

    1990 crx (standard)

    b16a (first gen) J1 transmission

    I/H/E(2.5 crushed), skunk2 stage 1 camshafts, skunk2 IM, Hondata IM gasket, Zdyne ECU, AEM cam gears, CM stage 3 clutch and HD pressure plate, CM 7.5 flywheel

    Only suspension modifications at the moment are a jimfab traction bar, a full DA brake swap, and some azenis (if those count)

    Have yet to take it to the drag strip

    the price break down is as best i remember it
    Motor 1,000, transmission 375, camshafts and gears 500 (used a little), S2 IM 250, IM gasket 60, Zdyne 100 (used), CM clutch, pp, flywheel: free (after getting totally screwed on ebay), jimfab ~250-300.
    labor cost: engine install 700 (taking the b16 out of my old DA, putting it into the ED and converting to mpfi, putting on the traction bar, installing new water pump, timing belt, intake manifold & gasket) transmission and clutch install 150, brake swap 150.
    i think that about sums it up.

    My Si and GS-R sedan are my daily drivers, so are both all set. Both have LSD and Koni shocks though. The sedan has a used Koyo racing radiator. Must keep the a/c in both of those cars though.... lol.

    This upcoming year, the white DX will transform slowly into a rallycar. We were inspired by someone on H-T in Michigan who successfully rallies a CX hatch with I think an LS swap. The rollcage, seats, harnesses and Hans devices are the expensive items to buy for it.

    The RX-7 will have upgraded suspension, maybe Bridgeported and a free flowing exhaust added. Performance parts for these cars are available used and seem to be cheaper than similar parts for Hondas. lol. But just bought the car and still doing a lot of reading on the subject. The 7 will be autocrossed and do a little time on the track.

    The grey DX will probably get a B16 swap in it.

    Quarter mile times are not a high priority, but good handling is. Used parts are my friend. Would have done more with my cars last summer and fall, but Matt and I had too good a time driving all over the US. California twice, then Colorado to watch the Pikes Peak hillclimb and down to Florida. Even went to Atlanta to see the Petit LeMans in September. Sometimes being a spectator firsthand is very inspirational.

    On the money aspect, it will take time to tally, but again, hunting for used parts is a real plus. But except for my Si, all the cars were bought for very very cheap.

    95 GSR coupe.

    Engine:
    Stock 150k mile block, ported head, Skunk2 S1 cams, ITR outer/Portlflow inner valvesprings, modded JDM 4-1 header, Skunk2 IM, CAI, lots of tuning. No AC, no PS, no back seats or sound deadening.

    Suspension: JDM 23mm rear sway bar, 450#F/550#R springs on Koni yellows, shock body moved down in fork for more front travel, spherical bearings in a couple key suspension pivots, some urethane and stock trailing arm bushings and a funky auto-x alignment.

    Safety: autopower 4 pt rollbar, RJS Camlock harness. Seam welded around shock mounting points and at subframe/chassis connections and a few other places.

    Transmission: 00 Si S4C tranny with Quaife LSD, ACT HDSS clutch and ITR flywheel and a set of IMSA roadrace spec Raxles.

    Brakes: Hawk HP+ pads, Earls brake lines, Motul 600 fluid and custom brake ducts.

    Bought the car for $10,200 3.5 years ago with 32k miles and put about $3000 into the car so far. Lots of the $ spent on 3 sets of wheel bearings before I figured out brake ducts help keep the whole knuckle cool :D

    Track times: 2:48:46 Sebring Full course on Kumhos :p
