Neila's EF sedan

Hi all, figured I would start a thread on my sedan. So after getting numerous offers for my d15b3 sedan, I decided to let her go as there were too many things not working.

Pic of old sedan:


Ater selling ^^ that, I went on and bought a other sedan. SADM ballade 160i DOHC.

Pic of when I viewed it:


At the moment I am trying to sort out the idle issue and at the same time waxing the body

A pic of when I brought her to her new home (Friday 29 November):




Since this picture I got a new rear tire so no more spare wheel. I also got the bumpers and side mouldings black again. Cleaned up interior and got both rear mud guards. Also fixed up the exhaust manifold that was blowing:




Still busy but this is how she stands. . .

The hood comes with all SADM 160i DOHC models as they have the d16a9 and ZC motors. The motor is still very healthy but at the same time sounds sick. Laughing Car needs to be tuned, and she wont idle Sad , I already checked all vacuum hoses and cleaned up intake and iacv but still no luck

Never knew they had zc sedan hoods.

Do you have any interior pictures you could share? Sedan looks great.

Have you tried adjusting the idle down using the idle screw located directly on top of the throttle body?

I had the cam gear cover removed and it looks as if though the intake side is off by 1 tooth. The cover with timing marks at the bottom is also missing so need to get that as well. It makes me sad to see how people can take something so beautiful. . .and mess it up, oh well

Interior is still in a state

Very nice dude!  If you're interesting in trading your BALLAD center garnish for a CIVIC one, let me know  Cool

Nice.

@ EF Sedan Enthusiast, I have not forgotten about your garnish bro. I just need a little time to get my car running  Embarassed
EF Sedan Enthusiast

No worries or rush just wanted to make sure you knew.
~Sp33~

Remember with the DOHC ZC's and all twin cam D series, the cam gears UP arrow will point toward each other slightly. Make sure that the INNER marking on the cam gear (the horizontal line that is at 3 o'clock on the exhaust cam and 9 o'clock on the intake cam) is level with the head. The outside markings will not line up and that's how it's supposed to be.

Cheers for the interior pics! I'm super jealous, that looks so comfy.
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Yeah it does.  Can't wait to see more pix of this thing all cleaned up.
Neila_EF

Thanks for kind words everybody, the seats are exactly as they seem, super comfy Laughing. I finally pulled her out the garage and shined her up!

Looks sharp, but you know those wheels are side specific, right? If not, they have 'R' and 'L' stamped in the casting just under the center cap.  Wink

I see them like that on crx's around here, i think tyre shops rotate them to prolong tyre life... But you end up with mismatched sides haha.

Car looks on point! Really tough looking.

I'm even more jelly with that side view. And that rear wing Shocked

I haven't posted here in a while. I sold the blue sedan to a friend and bought a 91 Prelude 2.0


Not sure why but I just had to get a ef sedan again. So I sold the Prelude after owning it for less than a month  Laughing
Then got me another Ballade 160i DOHC. Needs some work but getting there slowly
EF Sedan Enthusiast

Is this sedan in better condition then the blue one?  Have you found me a black center garnish yet  Wink   Glad you're back in a sedan!
Neila_EF

This one has waaay less rust. I still get to see the blue one often. Thought you wanted the red garnish from the 160i DOHC?
Neila_EF

Cellphone quality, but some more recent pics>>>


EF Sedan Enthusiast

Looks real good dude and no, would only be interested in the black one in mint condition.
~Sp33~

New one looks good! Love the options these come with.

Looks clean
