TM's Sedan Take two

Got out of the honda scene for a little while. Had a buddy recently switch from turbo sohc z6 to turbo b16. Well I had the oppurtunity to purchase some of the stuff off his old build and bought a z6 block and eagle rods on the cheap before I even had a honda again lol. Well my red four door ended up going to the junkyard. Sad But just today picked up a 91 dx 5speed MPFI swapped sedan with BMC T3 log manifold, side mount intercooler, KYG GR2's with intrax springs, vx wheels, p61?, and some other odds and ends. Hoping to have the z6 built by the end of summer. Don't have access to a camera right now but as soon as I do ill post pics.

Installed:
88 crx LCA's with ES bushings
Lowering springs
Waiting for a pickle for to swap out the fronts to my lower control arms with ES bushings
Mocked up rear sway bar(Need to drill the holes in the floor Wink )
Also did a mild tuck of the headlight harnesses
Also need to swap to OBD1

Now i need to buy up some patch panels for the rears so I can get rid of the damn cancer on the car.

Hopefully I can find my camera and get some pics.

PIXORZ!

Finally got my hand on a camera and shot a couple things im working with.


Need to put the front bumper back on. Just measuring out some things for intercooler ideas.  Cool

I have nothing to do with the fabrication of this exhaust. It was on there when I bought the car.

MONEY SHOT!!!!! Bow down to the almight MPFI d15b2 son!

Painted vx's for the fo do! Might add a red lip to them. Haven't decided yet. Kinda wanna keep it under the radar.

22k miles on an original cluster. Werd! (Came off a different ef lol)
And yes my hand does rev to 8k all day everyday!


Ill snap some interior shots after it all gets put back together. Also need to track down a rear bottom seat.

I like the colour, i'd be worried about small children falling out of the rust holes though. Unless you don't have small children.  Razz

Meh. Up here rust is a standard option. Im not too worried about it lol
ThurmanMerman

So my junkyard... er... I mean backyard is getting full of honda parts again so i figured I would throw some more at this build. LOL. This thing will never get done lol.

Picked up this dank ass CRX for dirty cheap of a local kid. Had a EF9 front end welded onto the CRX back half. Ill let the pics do the talking.

DAMN! RHD with a cage. Legit!

Wait... The cage wasn't because the car was fast. It was to hold the car together.

You can kinda see where they joined the two cars together. lol

This is what I found underneath the car.  Shocked

Basically we are gonna try and use the firewall off the CRX of doom and firewall swap the fodo. No hack job this time tho. lol So far the measurements are the same but we will remove the firewall from the CRX and go from there. Free parts = WIN.

Debating on weather I wanna run my fast brakes kit on the car or not. It ends up being a 11" brake kit all around and I would have to up the rims to 16".

Holly crap that CRX is scary.

Pics of EF9 front?

Pics not show up? It didn't have a legit ef9 front end on it. Owner did one better and put a black widow kit on it. Rolling Eyes

Oh, i see how it is now.

Did they keep the CRX windscreen or what? Because the EF9 pillars are different.

Im really not sure which windshield they used. They didn't use much of the EF9 pillars so there might be a good chance that they used the EE8 one.
