ef sadan for life

im new on your site. but not new to hondas

Hey guy new on your site. I just rekindled  with my ef sadan and I'm lovin it Smile  I've had one before and I made the mistake of giving it to my girflfriend that soon became my ex that means no more sadan Sad but I baught a 88 lx and I'll never giveit up. I'm even going to trade my minty 89 rx7 gxl for a ef hatch that has everything I need to put my LS vtec into it and also I got full DA runing gear to drop in the sadan Smile  it will be the only sadan with LS vtec and DA running gear in town. And its going to be hellaflush by summer with a nice set of old school 15" BBS rims. I'm always down to chat and help whenever I can Smile

ef sadan for life

Sweet thanks man  Shocked  as soon as I'm done the swap I'll send all the pics to you. I have the moter in the sedan ready to be pulled in the morning and after that I'm going to put it up on blox and I'm pulling al the running gear out and I'm going to clean the engine bay. Then in a day or two I'm going to wake up erly and go hard all day and do the hole swap. All the da gear and moter will be in it   ;-D
4dred6

Np
ef sadan for life

Yee boooy hahahaha the ef is striped down and on blox now tomorrow im going to swap all the DA running gear and then drop in the moter Very Happy woooohooooo!!!!!!!!!
4dred6

Awesome
89 LX SOHC ZC

Sweet.
ef sadan for life

Well all the running gear is in breaks still need to be bled. The moter was in but i put the rear mount in the wrong holes and didnt see it till the moter was in and not fiting right for some reason grrr and i forgot to make space for the altinator. So ill get that done in the morning and get her bottoned up. Very Happy
4dred6

That sucks. that happend to me once,  I bolted the rear mount on the wrong holes
ef sadan for life

Stupid holes.... Well i gotta hammer in the fram for clearence for the altinator. Drill the hole for the clutch cable and put in pedal asembly. And theirs a peice of metal that the shifter cable came out of under the car that im going to see if it unbolts. If not im going to smash it off lol. Other then that plop the moter in and plum and wire it up bleed the breaks and it should be done.
89 LX SOHC ZC

Well that sucks but these things happen.
ef sadan for life

Merry christmas all you fellow honda lovers. Got the moter in yesterday all bottoned up and running Very Happy i have a few things to finish but i gueeeeess it will have to wait till after. All that is left is put the clutch pedal asembly in instal the clutch cable now that i have a hole in the firewall change the throttle cable blead breaks put rad fluid in and instal a small chunk of pipe for the exaust and last but not least put in the cv's. It sounds like a hole lot but really its not. The only thing thats not going to be fun is the clutch pedal asembly. It wasnt fun to remove out of the other car lol.
4dred6

nice, drop the steering column it will be easier.
ef sadan for life

ef sadan for life

Awsome Smile so everything is done on my car but the exaust and i need a good wire swap diagram for auto to standerd and a pin out for the 88 dx wiring to the ls integra obd0. I have it running but its throwing out codes 9, 14, and 16.  And i think its just the wiring. I swaped the wires that i saw on the donar car but im going to have to look harder to find what i missed. Also i need to find out what to jump for the auto wires cause i cant start it by key. I have to use my auto start and then i can turn the key and she'll run but i cant with out. Normaly you use the clutch and it pushes a button that lets me start it but their is no plug for it cause of the auto. Please help.
ef sadan for life

4dred6

thats cool. what kind of lip is it?
HondaJunkie

Great start man that looks to have a pretty clean body. Oh and I totally want that gold ratchet that thing looks badass.
ef sadan for life

Its a stock lip for a civic. I almost had a vw one but it was smashed. People out here at pick n pull fuck shit up all the time. Its a pritty clean body just a little canser at the back wells on either side and a nickle hole in the trunk. Other then that its clean. The underside is mint i dont even think theirs a dent under their. Everybolt came out like she wanted everything i was going to give her Very Happy and ya that ratchet is sweet. Tell ya what you guys come to kelowna bc and ill buy you both one haha. Theirs going to be some big cruzes this summer.

Ya forsure Very Happy  im going to run the same size tire your running . Looks good and fits right.
4dred6

To be honest I don't really like em, I would go with 195 45,  I had 205/50 and I think they were too big.
ef sadan for life

Hmmm i dont want too big of a tire. Try the other size and let me know what you think.
