BUT EVEN THOUGH IM YOUNG, I STILL END UP COMING BACK TO THE GOOD MODELS.

MY 1988 CIVIC SEDAN DX.
BOUGHT FOR 300 BECAUSE THE IGNITION HARNESS WAS BAD.







HAD SOME OLD SCHOOL PROJECTORS AND AMBER CORNERS FROM LIKE 2 YEARS AGO.
AND CRX BUMPER LENS.




PREVIOUS OWNER HAD 4 KIDS UNDER 8 YEARS OLD. SO HAD TO SHAMPOO AND CLEAN OUT THE ENTIRE INTERIOR.



GOT HER ALLIGNED.


THEN WENT ON SOME OLD SI RIMS FROM AN OLD CRX.





THEN I DID SOME DIGGING, THE SEDAN WITH A B2 WEIGHS 174 POUNDS LIGHTER THAN THE EG HATCH WITH A B7.

SO WITH THAT KNOWLEDGE I DECIDED TO SWAP THE MOTOR FROM MY HATCH ALMOST 375 HP!!!! INTO THE .... ..... .... SEDAN!!!@

picked up the 15/16 master cylinder with the da brake booster
picked up the 40/40 prop valve
da sway bar
90-91 tails, not sure if its worth the effort to either find another trunk or cut up my existing one though.
picked up a hasport ef b series shift linkage.
turboefsedan

installed the new master cylinder, booster, and prop valve as well as installed the rear disc swap and the steel braided lines.
