Hey said I might as well throw up a log for my Ef since its kinda turning into a project.. I bought the car 4weeks ago as a run around while I build Ef8 CRX SiR...

So the car came completly stock ED2 in Torino Red (wine colour), this alone was one of the reasons for buying it because its the same colour as my CRX Cool..
It has a pretty weak D14 1400cc duel carb engine It has no power steering, electric windows, air con, sunroof so its really light..
First mod was fitting a set of 15" Mugen RNRs in black with a red lip with Toyo Proxies.
I then removed the ugly standard rectangle plate adaptor on the front bumper (rectangle/oblong plates are standard in Ireland Rolling Eyes )
I then fitted a kenwood flip frond headunit and new door speakers since the stock parts were all wrecked..
JDM Triangle Advan stickers were added over the front fender indicators..
Front strut brace, earthing kit and sprayed rocker cover also fitted

I now have a parts list mounting up at home which will be added over the next couple of weeks, stuff like:

JDM DC2 blcck Recaros
JDM EK9 TEIN Super Street coilovers
JDM EF9 Floormats
JDM EK9 larger sun visors
JDM EF8 Front bumper splitter
Rear Strut brace
Custom straight through exhaust and decat
Nardi Steering Wheel
Oil catch tank

Will post up pics and updates as soon as I can

Paul

Thanks lads took me ages to find em and especially in 14s couldnt believe my look hopefully they will clear the Vtec calipers now.. Will try get more pics soon when Ive a few more bits installed Cool

The recaros were a very easy fit, use standard CRX rails..
The front bolts straight on and if you look at the back you can bend a washer kind of thing that allows that bolt on straight on too then two spacers on the side closest to the door and your sorted very easy really

with that CRX, i can see why you feel the sedan to be lame to drive, at least at first.

Looking good, seems like someone else might be catching up to me in number of wheels and tires.

@DX-T AWD: What have you in your wheel collection??

Ive got:
15" Volk Racing TE37s White
15" Mugen RNRs Black with Red Lip
15" Mugen RNRs Silver x2 sets
15" Sparco NSIIs Black With Red Lip
15" 5zigen FNO1RCs Bronze
14" Work Equip 01s

And then various other 14"-16" crappy wheels and a set of 15" TRD Split rims that I gave to my dad for his AE101 levin Smile

At the start was missing the CRX but its kinda slipping to the side now while Im building the Civic ordering the engine mounts and fuel pump asap hopefully will be done with the B16a by the first weekend in April for a drag day in Northern Ireland Cool

you've got me beat!

Ive got:

14" 91 CRX SI wheels on my 63,000 mile CRX (only set smaller than 15")
15" steelies with hubcaps with snow tires
15" unknown konigs, black 5 spoke with polished lip and 225/45R15 Rs2's
15" 2000 civic SI wheels, currently only 2 Dunlop SP 9000
16" 512 brand multi spoke with polished lip and crap federal tires

17" DC5 Type R replicas, need a little cleaning up, and having 2 widened for 245 rear tires, still can't get someone to help me get center caps, it seems impossible here in the US

Well finally got pics of the doner car 91 Honda Civic iVT 138k miles..
and the all important B16a

First pics the day I collected it






As ye can see the car is fairly F**ked so didnt feel so bad breaking it appart.
Parts that are needed and perfect are:
B16a 1600cc DOHC Vtec Engine
Cable J1 Gearbox
Bigger front disks and calipers
Rear disk conversion
Seibring Exhaust
Full wiring loom..

The car was running fine but not really going in a straight line

I really like that style of rim on your donor car. They shine up really nice.

Must have been in a fairly descent accident too.

You prefer the RNRs over the Works?
Will try get some day light pics of a few different sets of wheels on the car but I think 14s are the way to go.. They clear the Vtec brakes too, barely... Cool

It might just be the way the pictures are composed, but the pic with the RNRs looks good.  Equips score big on rarity/cool points though  Wink  

How do the Gmax springs ride?  

Any progress with the B16 swap?  I will be watching this closely and would be interested to know what parts you needed to use/change.  I assume that you'll need to swap the bonnet for a VT item.  Interested to know how you get around the fuel tank issue too.  

I'm toying between a B16a1 and a lightly boosted D16z6.  I like the B-series, but the D-series will allow me to fit my 4wd without the need to swap to CRV parts.  Hmm, decisions, decisions.   Confused

Keep us updated  Smile

Yeah, we didn't get them here, I think they one of the better looking stock rim's Honda have produced.

Going for hasport engine mounts and inline fuelpump and fuel filter just waiting on parts.. 8weeks so far for the mounts Mad

Had the car entered in a 1/4mile as a B16 but will have to do it in the stock 1.4 engine but will be fun still Cool  Must post some new pics up its stripped with just a Bride Zeta III seat to go in, it'll be light if nothing else Embarassed
Not using the Gmax yet will be on for the 1/4 mile though so will get back to ya on that..
Bseries is a cool swap but I can see wher your coming from with d series.. Will you be going to JAE this year Ill be there in the sedan anyway..

@ Sp33: They are a pretty nice wheel alright suit the EF shape really well Cool

Yes, I'll be at JAE.  It will be my first year there as previous attempts to attend have always had to be abandoned at the last minute  Sad

Still, I hope to have mine lowered and rolling on some suitable rims by then, if nothing else.  

Looking forward to seeing your car in the flesh, so to speak.  

Wow, I've just read the whole of this thread again.  I didn't realize that the spec of your car differed from the spec of mine.  I thought all UK cars were equiped the same  Confused   I guess Irish models must differ to English cars.  

I thought all UK ED2s came in GL spec?  With power steering, central locking, 4x electric windows, electric sunroof and electric adjusting mirrors as standard.  All this extra weight pulled along by the same D14 twin carb engine.  Mine's quite lardy compared to yours.  No wonder it feels sluggish!  

Oddly, mine was imported into England in 1993 but has full GL spec, including RHD.  Gawd knows where it came from originally  Confused

Keep up the good work.  I can't wait to see it at JAE  Very Happy
