Monjans Hay's Sedan Build Thread Updated 4/30/14

Sup guys I'm trying to get on the EF Sedan Squad so here is my sedan. Sold my Si's last night, & bought brand new tires & fixed my bent lip for my Enkei 92's and slapped them on today. Tires + Repair = $225 (: I'll post up pics in a few days when im able to get a hold of someones camera. Hopefully these pics will do work for now.







Also does anyone have any advice on taking out that K&N Sticker on the back. Its bothering me. -_- Thanks.

Forgot to add info on my car.

1991 Civic LX
Motor is stock. 92K original miles.
Ugly magnaflow muffler.
2 1/4 Piping
Lowered on H&R Springs
Thats about it for now. =/

Monjan

Thanks guys. Yeah theres little dents and dings here and there but the major one is on the hood when they tried stealing the car but couldnt cause of a bad coil so they kicked the hood in and broke the hood latch cable thats why theres ugly hood pins on there now cause it wont stay closed. & i also got the enkei 92s for free in my uncles backyard and just resprayed them black. Ill post up pics when the weather is better down here in Sacramento. (:
Monjan

Also im planning on buying some ebay coilovers soon too.
Monjan

UPDATE: Bought tires & fixed a bent lip for my Enkei 92's on Thursday, repainted them Sunday & slapped on my mudguards. Heres how it looks as of right now. I'll be buying some coilovers & front mudguards in a week or two. Will update with more pics after those are on(:







Heres how my wheels looked before i painted them.

Monjan

So here's the story about my car.

First recieved in August of 09' & with a set of enkei 92's but one with a bent lip, so i was on steelies.
Car was already lowered & had exhaust.
Bought Si Wheels in January for $220.
Rolled on them until March 24th & Sold them for $300 (:
March 25th Bought brand new tires & fixed the lip at a local shop in Stockton, CA & bought rear mudguards from a friend for $20.
Tires = 195/50/R15 = $200 & Fixing the lip costs $25. (:
March 28th painted the enkei's.
Basically this is all that is done for now until i get money to buy my coilovers and front mudguards.

no sure if you've gotten my advice on removing the sticker off of the trunk yet, i said something about it on honda tech.

but for efcivicsedan.com, just use a hair dryer, or a heat gun, whichever you can more readily get ahold of. and warm up the sticker, it'll release the adhesive, and you will be able to peel it off.

My d15b2 has siezed and now im looking into a SOHC ZC. What do i need to do to have the swap successful and have the car passing smog and everything running fine. Can i use parts from the d15b2? I know that i can use the same tranny but im not sure if im able to use the same ECU. But i was reading somewhere else that if i do use the same ECU im going to need to do a MPFI swap also. Is there anything i need to know in particular to do everything right and also what other parts are needed for the swap. So if someone can help me out with my situation i would highly appreciate it. Im pretty stressed out right now because my car and I are out of town and i need to go back for school so i have to get everything done ASAP. Thanks.

Also my car is a 1991 Civic Sedan LX & im pretty sure its OBD0. & the ZC is OBD1 im thinking? What do i need to swap that over?
Monjan

Putting in the motor today. A friend of mines is lapping the valves and doing head work. After thats done we'll be putting the head back on and dropping in the ZC. (: Will post pics later.

Clean sedan. BTW don't know if you saw this from your other thread but here is my advice on your zc swap.

Buy a boomslang dpfi to mpfi obd1 harness. They are about ~$110. Pretty easy install and shouldn't take more than a couple of hours with the instructions to wire it up.

I believe you also will need to swap the drivers side block mount to your d15b2 mount so your motor mount bolts up to it.

I have no idea about getting it smog legal tho. Love living in a state that doesn't require it.  Very Happy
Monjan

thanks man. i guess my only way of getting it smogged is by doing it illegally. -_-
Monjan

Holy crap i forgot that i even made this thread! Will be posting more and updating this thread as often as i can. Heres a current picture of my sedan from the CMI Sacramento Raceway Drag Race and Show. Enjoy

Sweet looking sedan you've got there, good sir!

Had a pretty busy weekend with the sedan. Got the motor pulled out and cleaned the engine bay up pretty nice and took out all the ac/ps/cc lines. Once I get a little more time I'll be able to work on it a little more. Hoping my interview with Tesla will go well and I get the job then I'll have so many more moneys for car parts! I can't wait!


Got everything ready to pull out the motor ...


Went to bed at 5:30 woke up at 7 for work all because the driver side axle decided it wanted to be a 31mm and not a 32mm


Motor finally out ... so I jumped in like it was a swimming pool


My girl cleaning out the engine bay for me... she wouldn't let me help at all! It's a filipino thing I guess. Love this girl to death tho. Whose girlfriend is down to clean out a greasy bay, MINE IS!


A quick shot of the bay all cleaned. Need to take a pic of it without the ac lines and stuff.
Monjan

Also 2 more shots I found of my car at the CHI show.



EF Sedan Enthusiast

That's awesome dude.  Hope you get the job at Tesla!
Monjan

Thanks Jon, interview is getting rescheduled pretty anxious for it though. In other words, I can't seem to find any where that will sell me a clutch alignment tool without having to buy a clutch kit. Pretty lame!

Monjan

I really need to get this thing updated! Hopefully I can find some spare time and do a little reminiscing through some of the pics I've taken over the years along with the different wheel set ups if had on the sedan! Heres a little teaser from the last time I got to shoot the sedan!
