start of n/a b18c1

alright so i have decided to go all out on my ef and put my heart and soul into this little sucker to make it the best sleeper i can. pretty much bang for ur buck kinda deal.



Alright so couple weeks ago i joined this thread and the next day my motor pinged in cylinder 3 causing piston slap. The motor was a b20b with b16 tranny, running obdo. Well since then ive been back and forth and trying to figure out what to do but i have saved up for the last couple weeks and got me a 1995 b18c1 with 110k on the motor. I got a bangin deal for the motor and only paid $500, nice thing it was from a friend so i know its legal and not a mystery motor.


Alright so Tuesday i decided to pulled my motor out and looked around for and cracks or strains and found nothing to bad so im pretty sure once i pull the head ill see nothing to critical that cant be fixed or replaced. So some point in this build thread u might see me doing a turbo b20b build on the side for them nice summer nights to toss into my sedan.



So i picked up my b18c1 from my buddy's shop and is now sitting in the back of my pontiac g6 in its seatbelt secured nicely Smile.

so today was decent got most of the bay prepped and tucked only got about a hour left of tucking on the driver side. i also got the bay painted, put for different coats on before i was happy.


trying different colors


and the final color. just need to get some acetone and clean alittle of the parts and then gloss and hardener (look clean then).  


(EDIT)
so i never really told u guys what my plans are but i plan on making a beast of a daily. i would like to keep a mild n/a build with a little head work: toda cams, aem gears, crower valves and springs + gates timing belt.

i will be doing no bottom end as it should go just fine one the stock block. i will be adding rsr headers, bbk or victor x intake mani, and rc750 with 225pl and better fuel filter. i will have it set up on chrome pro and running a dual tune for a aggressive E-85 for them weekends and 87 pump gas running a lean tune for them work days.

their will be a tone of suspension and stability along the way buit not sure what i want on that yet.

nice. setup sounds sick. what kind of Toda cams?
ODRColorado

i was thinking the killer cams or a skunk 2 stage 2 pro n/a cam.
4dred6

i just love how the killers sound. but toda shit is too expensive i got
my cam gears for 70 bucks  Very Happy  brand new in box.
ODRColorado

nice what cam setup u got and were can i get mine for 70
4dred6

I got a B17, head is pr3 so I don't think they different from the b16. Pr3. (stock B17A1 cams).


Got them from a very close friend.(cam gears)
ODRColorado

nice i was thinking of going with b16a2 cams as i had them on my last b18c1 an it made a big difference. so im putting my motor in this next week an having my obdo dash harness repined and made to work with b18c1 obd1 engine harness+ecu plugs. so it will be a full complete obd1 car
ODRColorado

so i got the motor in today and painted the wheels as well. all i have left is harness, ball joints, tie rods, relocate battery to trunk, p28/p72 ecu, camber kit, 2 tires, alignment.

89 LX SOHC ZC

That sucks I would be really sad to see one my old cars in the junk yard I get a little attatched to my cars. A  freind of mine told me a while back he found my first car in a junk yard and it upset me.
ODRColorado

havent been able to post lately been working a ton but i have this next week off and im going to be getting it runnnin and drivable. so found some good news out as my hole motor is rebuilt with brand new oem parts. pistons, rings, rods, crank, valves, valve seats, etc everything internal. one of my freinds who i bought the motor from owed me some money from awhile back and he did this for me instead. so now i have to break this motor in Smile. but ill be posting more on thursday as it will be getting towed to my buddy shop an we are going to go nuts and get this wire harness done.
4dred6

nice. nothing like a fresh motor.  Smile
ODRColorado

i know right! so i got my battery relocated to the trunk today and wired it up. but i am also hung up on a couple things. like the crank pulley is to large off the gsr so i need to upgrade the pulley and i need to get a front camber kit. + i need to get oil, coolant, make a custom throttle cable bracket, and have my exhaust welded then a alignment after all that it will be going so here in 2 weeks it will be done. god i hope!
ODRColorado

so car is down at my buddy shop as it sits and getting alittle more tucked and wires done, also i have been busy getting my skunk 2 front camber kit and royal purple fluids and putting on the accord front lip on my ed3
ODRColorado

4dred6
