Hi all, recently bought my first Honda from a buddy. It is an 88 cream colored sedan. A week before I bought the car I got a z6 for a pretty fair price, and am currently waiting on parts to come in for it. My bud is letting me borrow an a6 in the meantime to drive around on until my motor is finished.

The day I bought the car I ordered an bottom end kit for my z6.
I have replaced both axles, fitted a radiator, replaced thermostat & gasket, swapped spindles, replaced ball joints, installed a headlight,  and fixed some janky twisted wires running to the headlights. I bought some Kosei K1's used (haven't bought tires yet) and am currently rocking whatever wheels the car in the banner of this site has on it (my tires on the steel wheels need replaced, once again buddy is letting me borrow important part). The car was already converted to mpfi, and has coilovers (ground control, I believe).

My plan for the car is to turbo with vitara set-up over the next year, and autocross it in the meantime with the a6 in it (yes I know it bumps my class). I have a attended a few events in my dd over the past 2 years.

My daily is a 2004 GTO.

Right now I am chasing down radiator fan problems. Either fuse, coolant temp switch, or relay (yes I know how to search!) just have to get back to where I have the car stored. Enough with the long thread, I'll give you guys (and gals) some pics.

Welcome!  The sedan in the banner is mine (recently purchased).  Sounds like you'll have a nice setup when it's all said and done.  Keep us updated and let us know if you have any questions.

Thanks for all the welcomes guys.

I got a tip on some wheels from a buddy at the local pull it yard.
Came home with some 13x6 Exip(same as exim if you google it) 33 offset wheels. There is a little rash on the front ones (bad on the inside of the rim) with 185/80 tires, and 175/70 tires for the rears. the front tires need replaced, but I am gonna wait a couple weeks before I get tires and install them. Plans are to clean em up, sand down the rash, then either paint middle gold with polish lip/polish entire wheel face. Enough chatter.

(Clickable Thumbnails again for those wanting to see larger resolution)




(^^ center caps say EXIP, and no tabs are broken)




(rear tire on bottom ^)

(rear tire on top ^)

So what do you guys think about them? How about paint/polishing them?

After searching for hours (online and under car) I cannot for my life find where the o2 sensor connects on this d16a6 I am using.....can anyone point me in the right direction?? (Not asking anyone to use search feature for me, just tell me please!).

the O2 Sensor is right on the header. if you look for the stamp on the block that says the engine code: D16A6,the O2 Sensor should be right in front of it.

to the original poster, nice start

My 4 new paperweights.


Other stuff that everyone has seen before....


Rest of stuff in box





Also, thanks 2 envy! I don't know what my actual sensor came from (got it from another civic guy) but the plugs don't fit each other. But at least I know where it goes to now and can rig it up.

Thanks again guys!

I got a set of 19 Gorilla Lug Nuts for free, just happens that only 3 are damaged, so that's perfect for me.
Today I lowered the front on the car about an inch from where it was, and evened it out (passenger side was an inch higher than driver side before I tinkered it). When dark hits I plan to go back out and lower the rear.

Picked up a lot of stuff....
kinda lame but my favorite is probably the mirror delete or the clock.
Does anyone need anything by chance, the car is pretty complete?

EDIT: I am sadpanda, the mirror delete doesn't line up...hatch ftl

Just an update, you guys haven't run me off...a couple weeks ago I had a ton of white smoke at startup. So I haven't moved the car for fear of making things worse. I am currently waiting to take my z6 to the machine shop for the 75.5 vitara piston fitting, etc.

Last week I got another complete d16z6 for $120, and I am in the process of tearing it down for inspection. Came with flywheel, complete motor, and even an alternator. I love how cheap these little cars can be. The bad part is a valve cover bolt is snapped off and a header stud is snapped....but that's not too bad and can be fixed relatively easy.

Today I left the block, crank, oil pan, bottom end kit from FJ, rods, pistons etc. at the machine shop.
In 2-3 weeks everything will be shiny and new and ready to drop in.

A good friend of mine gave me (FREE) a 14b turbo from his gsx since he upgraded a bit to a 16g. More on that later...

Thanks for everyone who is reading.

Wow, I guess my intro thread kinda grew out of control. Please do move it.
If possible rename it to something more appropriate and searchable.

maybe "cream sedan d16z6 build" or something.


Going to attempt a head gasket change tomorrow if I can get my gf to hold stuff tight.
