mp_89dx..... 1990 EX build thread

Hey guys just picked up my 90 ex sedan the other day so I thought I would post up pics of my soon to be dd/project. She is a little ruff around the edges but the body is sound and the interrior is in very good shape. I will keep you all posted as updates come but I can tell you now she has a b16 in her future.

Nice find. Some people are kinda retardid about what they ask for their cars. I was trying to neg a deal for a 90 dx with no title and needing work to get running. Guy wouldn't budge on his price of 600.....
mp_89dx

thats a horrible deal. Here in NC it would be such a pain to get a lost title that that car wouldnt even go for more then $300. There seem to be several sedans around but hardly anyone builds them around here. I would love to meet more sedan owners in the area.

Very nice starter! I'm jealous!
mp_89dx

yeah too bad i dont have the ex badge on the back. I posted a wtb thread a while back but i guess no one has one or has come across one.
FlatTireRacer

Damn, that sucks. I saw an EX in the junkyard like a week before I left Texas... :-/
mp_89dx

yeah its my luck. i looked them up at work but they are discontinued.

Man I don't know exactly about how Honda's system works but I know there's holes. I asked for Si badges here at a Florida dealership, they said they were on national backorder. Something stank. Called one my friends in Texas... Yeah, I have two brand new O.E., still in the package Si badges sitting on my kitchen table. To top it off I have them in both the Dark Grey and the Red! I have found a pretty good site to check though hondapartsnow.com Easy to navigate and simple to use. If they don't have it then it usually is a junkyard treasure hunt item.

i actually work at a honda dealership in the parts dept. well this is my last week so not too much longer. Love the job but the pay sucks.

Presenting the new heart for my girl. Hopefully I will have all my other pieces gathered and the transplant done by mid summer.
Also pictured is the 12.5 lb act flywheel i picked up for her.

mp_89dx

well guys sadly i did not have the money to finish the b16 swap due to medical bills and well just life so i sold it all and im regrouping. Looks like im gonna throw together a mini me build with some parts I have laying around.
89 LX SOHC ZC

Sucks to hear that man good luck on the mini me build.
mp_89dx

Appreciate it. I have been a sohc guy for a long time so I have so many parts laying around i can throw together a mini me that will eat up b16's when im done with it.
mp_89dx

got some new toys for my girl







my favorite new toy.



and thats it for now. I have a whole lot of work to do

Nice man, thats a killer purchase.  You can't find anything like that around these parts (easily at least)  How hard is it to install a push button start??  and is there a specific model you got that off of?  BTW i don't know what you are planning on doing with those taillights but I have mine still and they are smoked red, super clean, I can post some pics (not spray can smoked, candy transparent red w/clear coat).  If you are interested.
MaXXuS

Here is a quick pic of the tail lights, smoked and cleared.  Had them off the civic for a while now just sitting around.

Damn those tails look good.... For 90-91's Razz
mp_89dx

Any push button start from an s2000 will work. Do you have any pics of those tails installed?
mp_89dx

Got my y8 manifold bored out today to mate up to my h23 tb. All i need now is an obd0 to obd1 jumper harness and to assemble my motor and the sedan will be rolling. If anyone has a jumper harness for sale hit me up. Also got my hitch in for the sedan as well. I will post up pics as i install all my goodies.
mp_89dx

I HAVE EVERYTHING I NEED NOW TO ASSEMBLE MY MOTOR AND GET HER RUNNING EXCEPT TIME....... Will post up pics soon of putting everything together
