    What would you do

    meh, I really have not had luck. Do you have any good ideas as to where to look online for motors shipped? Also, I thought that the Honda heads had their own part number or description. I ask this with the idea that maybe the d15b7 head is the same as other heads, meaning that I could...

    What would you do

    I have a customer (side work) with a 1992 civic, auto with d15b7 who seems to have blown her motor. I have not spoken with the mechanic who diagnosed the problem, but it appears that something internal has failed. Assuming that the head is still in decent shape, what is the most readily...

    Brad's CRX Build

    I believe it is actually the aluminum -which is what the wheel is made of- polished and then clear coated... (zinc chromate mate, primer (outboard primer the same thing(marine store)))

    Valve covers!!!

    Valve covers!!!

    actually gas mileage is not that great, considering it's so much fun to mash the pedal. with the dual carbs... seems like it's too hard to be light on the throttle, and without an o2 telling the computer proper mixture, i'm sure a lot gets flushed out the pipe. i'm still in the process of...
