I'll keep this as a placeholder for when I dig up my old posts of my build.

I picked up this car back in 2007 from the U of M with less than 100 total miles on it since it was donated new back in 1986 from Bloomington Acura. The car was used as a kinesiology drunk driving simulation car without any running gear and a whole bunch of sensors and stuff wired up in it for the simulation so the driver got feedback like the car was actually moving. At the time, I was rebuilding a motor from my first car ever (still a special place in my heart) which was a 1988 Integra and had to pick it up since it made so much sense. Please excuse all the crappy cell phone pictures.

Here's how it sat as of 2010:
Image
Image

Interior:
Image

But I decided to pick up all the necessary parts for a B-swap:

Image

Found a guy on a local honda forum selling this motor (B18C1):

Image

Picked it up in my 1998 Integra!

Image

...and this tranny (B16 with quaife lSD):

Image

...to replace this:

Image

Image

With this:

Image

This thing is has been a blast!
Here's the baseline dyno results

Image

...and a photo of her airing out.
Image

That's as far as I got in summer 2012. I will try to find pictures of the steps leading to that point.

Next stesps in the process are finalizing the turbo build with a goal of 300 whp - then off to paint - hopefully end of the season 2013.

Fitting the manifold and turbo:
Image

Making a sweet stainless 2.5" exhaust fit that used to be on a DC Integra. It took a couple hours but fit very well in the end.

Clean B swap. Really interesting background on this 86.
Did it come with that 88-89 style wheel and interior?

No, I decided to swap in the dash and steering wheel from another Integra I owned (my first car, 1988 4-door) to get AC and Cruise control. The dash that came with it had some issues since they just hacked through the firewall to route some wires and such. I spent a LONG time filling in and smoothing out all the holes on the firewall where they had hacked things apart.

Here's how I fit the hydraulic clutch master set up on the pedal assembly. I ended up cutting the part the cable mounts to down a bit so the ratio would be correct for the stroke of the cylinder I was using. The rest was just playing around with steel until it all fit right.

Before PC (powder coat)

Image

After PC

Image

More pulling things apart, including relocating the underhood fusebox to the glovebox.

More progress with the bay. A little bit of welding and grinding.

Image

This is where I had to add clearance for the B-series alternator pulley finally boxed in.

Image

mmm...Zinc weld-thru primer.

I spent a TON of time wiring up a mil-spec connector at the firewall, but it turned out nice.

Image

Image

Image

Image

Image

This gives me an appreciation for what is charged when ordering a harness from Chase Bays or Rywire.

This was before filling and smoothing that section of the firewall out. After I finished filling it in, I ended up drilling new holes needed for the milspec connector and two thru-panel connectors I'm using for the starter and alternator. I moved the thru-panel connectors down so they wouldn't be visible.

Some more progress on the firewall.

Image

Shaved AC hole:

Image

Routed the power cable through the frame rail.

Image

And filled the chassis harness wire hole on the driver's side of the firewall.

Made a little spray booth in the garage.

Image

Then I sprayed primer, base and clear to get this:
(I am in no way a professional painter, but I figured I can always keep the hood closed if I messed this up)

Prepped:
Image

Primed:
Image

I didn't get a picture after base coat since I only had like 25 minutes to get ready to clear and that meant I had to quickly clean up and change over the spray gun to clear coat.

Cleared:

To me, crispy is a 11 out of 10. So it's great! LOl.


In that case, THANKS!

I hope to get the turbo finalized this summer and get her painted this coming fall/winter. Should be a bundle of fun.

It's my buddy's car. They swapped out the rotary engine for an LS2 V8 from a trailblazer SS but they still have a few more items to complete before it will run.

I welded up my own bracket for the Toyota brake master cylinder that I used as a clutch master. You can probably get a welding shop to do it for you if you don't have the equipment. You'll just need to bring them the master cylinder and the pedal assembly and explain what you want done.

I can't believe I lived without a front lip! I found a guy locally selling a 1987 with a lip on it and he graciously sold the part to me! I'm excited since I've been looking for one of these for quite a while.
Image

There are some scratches and bent sections on it from running into curbs I'm sure, but I think my painter can work with it.

Placing the intercooler required some trimming:
Image
My poor baby!

But it fits pretty sweet now
Image

We used the stock radiator bottom mount for one side by welding on a tab on the bottom of the intercoooler and welded on a threaded stub to the other side of the intercooler to bolt it to the vertical support. The vertical support also required a bit of modification on the bottom, so we beefed it up a bit in the process.

Image
Image

The fan just barely fits on the radiator since I had to move it toward the driver side a smidge, but it's going to work out just fine.

Next up, finish installing suspension (24mm bars are in, GC on Koni next) then plumb in the oil/water feed and return to the turbo.

Last weekend I was able to put in my koni/GCs in the back. I think I need some helper springs or some sort of adapter to use the stock spring perch to allow things to fit properly at full droop. I already scuffed up my fresh paint on the struts just lowering it off the lift when the spring caught on the ground control sleeve instead of seating properly. Oh well, I have more paint.

Image

Image

Image

Next I'll to put in the front struts and continue fitting turbo plumbing.

Update:
Here is the rear shock with helper spring installed
Image
Image

And a shot of the new panhard bar:

I found a spot to put my wide band and boost gauge. I'm using a 88/89 bezel which just had enough room to fit my 2" gauges. If you're looking to do this yourself, I bet 1.5" gauge faces would fit even better.

I also had to take some material from the dash itself behind the bezel for the body of the gauges to fit. This was easily done with a 2" hole saw with the bezel installed on the dash. They are easily seen when you're in the driver seat.

Image

Image

Image

I love the look of the boost gauge on the right, but that company doesn't make widebands. I think I'm going to get a matching AEM boost gauge eventually (there goes another $150+) and paint the screw on face rings with a matte black finish as well as paint the orange needle white instead to best match the gauges in the OEM cluster.

I also did a stealth install of the oil feed line to the turbo through the timing cover and tight to the block.

I finally routed the exhaust the rest of the way back behind the car. It's meant to mimic the stock look but I had to increase the size of the outlet pipes to 1.75" in order to get similar flow area.

Image

sorry for the dark image, something was up with the flash

Last weekend, I got the car ready for tuning, but it looks like everybody in my area is booked this week. I was really hoping to have this ready for an event at Brainerd International Raceway this weekend, but I might be out of luck.

Alas, here are some shots of the progress:

I borrowed my buddy's wheels since mine are still in powdercoating:
Image

I might drop it a hair more:
Image

Snug, but still space for AC at a later date:

Wow its really great to see someone having a build on this site again, and a good one. I was wondering what motor you are using? Was curious when I saw the numbers to match it with a motor.
Also I love the battery relocation! Is that an odyssey battery?
Mishimoto radiator? I used the half sized as well on my swap and had to make a dent in the hood to make it fit but the half size looks much better.
Also wanted to say that the new suspension is gonna feel like driving a different car. Just put in 27.5 mm torsion bars, kybs and some B&G springs in the rear. Its like driving a totally different car.
Very surprised to see that the turbo fits with that radiator sitting to the back of the car. My NA B20VTEC barely has the room.
Sorry just got excited to see this. Great build. Make sure you post up that dyno sheet when you get the tune!

1) The motor is a B18C1 (GSR). It was obviously a strong motor since many I've seen are closer to 135 hp, so I was pleased to see the 151 hp.

2) Yes Odyssey. I had to put in a second one since the first one died after storage for a bit over a year while i was fixing my house after a burst pipe.

3) I moved the radiator toward the motor so it would drop to a height that would allow the hood to close without modification. I cut away some of the front lower radiator support and re-boxed it in, but it turns out after moving it toward the driver side to allow the intercooler pipe space I wouldn't have needed to.

4) Suspension felt great at BIR (Brainerd Internation Raceway) this last weekend! I did a street tune and found that the OEM GSR clutch wasn't strong enough at about 6 or more psi. Thanks for the compliments. I like your build as well!

I'll post up some shots from BIR as I get them.

Thank you! I see what you did with the radiator now. That's what I should have done. What height do you have the vehicle at(ground to wheel well peak)?
What clutch are you considering? I replaced mine with an exedy stage 2 and its not too bad. Streetable but still grabs hard

I expect to make about 300 whp, so I was recommended to get a stage 4. I have had good luck with Comp clutches in the past, so I stuck with them.

Time for the clutch upgrade.

Comp Clutch stage 4 should be plenty strong.

I also decided to do an LS 5th gear and final drive to my B16 tranny while it was out. That should help keep the rpms down to a more tolerable level on the highway.

Have fum driving that thing with a stage 4 in it haha. Sometimes I feel like my stage 2 is grippier than I like.

I am thinking the clutch will be ok. My friend has a stage 5 in his DC2 integra and I have no problem driving it. I used to have a stage 2 in my daily DC2 integra and I loved it.

Cruising along at 70mph, I expect to see the RPMs at ~3400 (LS final and 5th) vs ~4200 (B16 final and 5th).

That's good. Yea I'm at about 4200 at 70mph. I'd probably get better gas milage in the city than highway if I didn't rip on it so much :P

I need to put on a good amount of miles to break in the new clutch so i decided to drive it to work for a couple days. (70 miles round trip) I am LOVING the new gearing. It is so much more tolerable on the freeway. It's tough to stay out of the throttle now that it hooks up and goes! :D After about 500 or so miles, it's off to the local dyno to get it tuned up with VTEC back on.

I also spent some time adding some sound deadening to the rear end of the car especially around the rear wheel wells. I still need to chase away a few rattles up in the dash, but it's getting better all the time. I might do some additional rust-proofing / undercoating to help even more with the road noise.

I also put on the JDM tail lights and corner lights.

I like the rims you picked. I can't wait to see dyno numbers. And you'll have to let me know how the sound deadening goes. I feel like my whole car just shakes and rattles. Gets old after a bit

Thanks. Those were my friends rims. I plan to use some of these from a 1992 Integra GSR powder coated black once I get the car painted.

I still haven't scheduled a dyno time yet, but I'm pretty stoked. I'm still predicting near 300 whp though which is going to be plenty for my goals.

Sound deadening update-

The deadening I put in was only in the rear and in a couple spots across the firewall. I think I need to layer up the firewall especially near the front wheel wells to help out with front road noise. I might put a few layers of the peel and seal stuff across the entire firewall since I took out the rubber backed insulation that usually goes there. I used to notice the rear over the front, but now the issue has swapped to the front so it is definitely doing the trick. The dash has it's own set of rattles to manage too though, so I might take it out and RTV the vents, etc. to help eliminate those.

That's a good idea. I took the rubber backed stuff too and I kinda wish I would have left it there other than burning it a couple times for welding and shaving the engine bay haha.

What have you used to deaden the sound? And rtv would be a good way to do it or some rubber grommets behind stuff if you could somehow manage that. I'd like to put some behind the mounts for the dash because mine vibrates a lot too
