Little back story:
Got the car couple years ago with a blown z6.. shell was clean though.. did sum cleaning ..repainted molding..bumper trim.. wire tucked lowered it.. put ls mesh wheels.. swapped a b20 in and it stayed that way for a while. Then I got the boost bug.. got a turbo kit from a friend.. tore apart the b20 to put rods and pistons.. but unfortunately ran outta money and had sum family and other problems to deal with first so it sat in the garage waiting.. I did little stuff when I could but nothing much.. Then things were starting to look up.. got a new job and the project began again.. Rebuilt the suspen with new bushings and balljoints.. cleaned and painted it.. swapped to a non power crx si steering rack.. put rear disc..everything but studs and bearings cuz mine were fine.brand new rear calipers and type r fronts with ebx pads and slotted rotors. Swapped the chassis harness and re tucked it a lot better this time.. replaced the front bumper and lights. New passenger fender.

Gonna order my pistons today hopefully if the machine shop calls and gives me the size and my balance shaft delete with oil pump since need that before can assemble it.. and sum bearings and the bottom end is done just need a new oil pan. Then all new supertech valve train and skunk2 pro1 cams or crower3's and little port and polish.  And a port matched 74 mm skunk2 throttle body and sum rdx injectors.

Once its done I would love to drive to Houston for a meet.. Hoping to make it to Wekfest this year .. trying to upload more pics but it won't do it from my phone so guess will do it from my laptop during lunch[/quote]

ahhh the Charge speed lip...I love the look it gives with its stocky front and aggressive stance. Ive seen multiple people with this lip but haven't seen anyone on here with it. I personally am going to by this lip soon tho my friend.

what bumper is that??
HondaJunkie

Nice pictures doing it right the first time I like it.
boosted ef2

Yea i like it but not sure if it will fit the 90-91 bumper..I actually brought one but it didnt fit cuz its for the 88-89 bumper.. so the center part is different.. So i gave it to my brother for his wagon which he later ripped into pieces Sad .. so dont wanna buy another if its not gonna fit.. Its a 91 sedan front bumper

it will fit with a lil persuasion Wink

Yea it wont fit the 90-91 only 88-89 unfortunately.
boosted ef2

Thats what i thought..Even if i trim the center to fit the ends will b little short Sad ...Oh well guess thats the price i pay for staying with that bumper instead of a hatch one..Does anybody know what other lips will fit and still look nice?
boosted ef2

So not getting my pistons today like i hoped..Brother sucks..Was hoping to have them by monday..But anyways gonna go to the junkyard sunday and c if i can get sum stuff..and bro needs stuff for the wagon.. Hope to get either a gsr complete center or atleast a accord armrest ..need a cowl and sum other little pieces..and a driver seat until i can find s2000 ones..

Thanks lol.. So i have a problem Sad

I think my rear trailing arm may be bent or something cuz it wont go negative to no matter what i do..Even with the camber kit completely negative  Confused .. Tried takin it off and putting stock one on but same thing.. tried all kinda adjusting messd with the toe kit still no change..Which is weird cuz was fine on the other car..Someone please help!!!..Cant even put my new wheels on cuz of all the positive camber
89CivicSi

ys sir heat gun, get it centered and bolted, then work ur way to both end forming it
4dred6

Did you put a stock camber arm or the whole trailing arm?
boosted ef2

Thanks i think i will try that cuz really wnt that lip Smile
boosted ef2

When i swapped to rear disc i put ES trailing arm bushings and a blox camber and toe kit.. Same with the driver side but the passenger side is giving me all the problems.. thought i just needed an alignment but not so sure anymore..tried adjusting and even swapped the passenger and driver camber kit just to c if that was it.. didnt work
boosted ef2

I thought i had it fixed the other day cuz i realized the trailing arm was hitting the frame were the trailing arm bushung is.. guess i pushed it over too far.. so i slid it back over to match the gap on the driver side still nothing Evil or Very Mad ....no matter what i do the top of the wheel sticks out and the bottom goes in...Need to fix this so can order my tires and finally put my wheels on
4dred6

That's weird. Did the same with drums?
boosted ef2

it was perfectly fine with the drums..and the arm was fine on my crx

[url]http://s746.photobucket.com/user/hondaboyzc/slideshow/the%20one%20that%20got%20away

Idk maybe i heated too much when swapping the bushing?
Or maybe it just really needs an alignment? I will take pics when i get home [/url]
4dred6

One of my homies hit a curb and hes got a lot of + camber. Even with the camber kit all the way open. Any accidents?
boosted ef2

Nope ..thats what i thought but everything under the car is straight..Im gonna take it off later and check everything..Hope its something simple that im missing.. Or just a bent arm and nothing major..will just pull another arm at the junkyard and be done
4dred6

Do you know if the aftermarket toe arms are for both civic n integra?
Cuz if you use DA toe arms on civic youll have lots of toe in
boosted ef2

There for 88 - 91 crx/civic.. unless they gave me the wrong ones.. but the driver side is fine
boosted ef2

Well I went home yesterday and my power was out... guess the weather hates me..so no garage time till they fix it. But I did order a skunk2 74mm throttle body and p2r gasket Smile ..may order my fuel rail today also. And still haven't gotten my pistons.. guess I will try leaving work early next week so I can make it to the machine shop... can't depend on people anymore I guess.
boosted ef2

Still haven't figured out my camber problems.. I will take pics as soon as my power is back on.. hopefully today or tommorrow
