89 RS Integra

Postby 89chondabrah » January 11th, 2013, 4:04 am

originaly bought for $800, rebuilt the motor and trans, re-indexed the torsion bars 1 notch and did the shock "mod", cut rear springs :oops: ,short ram, and cat back, ngk plugs and wires, walboro 255 lph fuel pump, and its gutted from behind the front seats back.

when i rebuilt it i re-used the head bolts and torqued them down an additional 10 ft lbs, and it ran great but i almost over heated it once and the studs stretched and popped the head gasket.
all summer ive been hording parts all summer and now its time to add sum boost in my life.
the new set will be a stock d16a1 bottom end, either a zc head or my stock head with zc cams, a zc intake manifold and throttle body, cometic head gasket, i got my arp head studs 2day finally, 50 trim, log exhaust manifold, ebay front mount and piping, emusa wastegate, 450cc inj, hks ssqv, zc obd1 ecu and dizzy for an obd1 swap. it should make some decent power at 6 lbs, if i sell me 92 da i can get the vitera pistons and fjr custom length rods and bigger injectors.
as soon as i get my tax return ill be upgrading to omp torsion bars and ground control coil sleeves, and kyb's all the way around. ill be addin more pics of the set up soon, i just ran outta propane for the heater in the garage and its freezin.

Let me know how those vitara pistons and fj rods work out. I'm building a new engine soon here and am curious about those parts since they're much cheaper than eagle rods and wiesco pistons.

When I was reading about this a few years back the Vitara Pistons would create an incredibly low CR in the ZC/D16A1. Haven't read up on it recently but if the rods are long enough they could bring it back up.

it worked well on my hood, i just scuffed it with a red brillo pad and built the paint up slowly. and you have to use alot of coats or the chalk will just scratch the paint and ruin it.

so ive run into some problems, the zc parts i got are for a 4th gen zc so the flywheel fits with the clutch but contacts inside the trans, so i tried using a stock clutch i got and its smaller than the 4th gen clutch so that doesnt work either.Image
Image
so i just used the stock flywheel and clutch and threw it back in the car and figure that out later. i bolted the head on today and as soon as i look up arp's torque specs ill torque them down.
Image
Image
Image
over the next few days ill finish up assembly then move onto doin the suspension. i already ripped out the torsion bars, shocks, and coils so im just waitin on shocks to arrive and i can put it all togather again.
Image
Image
all i have to do to fit the torsion bars is take off a spline on the front of the bars for the keyway and i can slide them in. i reindexed my old bars so my torque tubes are already splined and the rear of the torsion bar slips in perfectly. now i gotta do sum research on all the 4th gen zc stuff i got. i have an L3 trans, the fidanza 7.5lb flywheel, xtd clutch. i wanna try and find a way to use the fidanza flywheel on my blacktop and figure out what the gearset is in the l3 and figure out if i can use anything from it.

took a couple pics of the interior today...zebra vinyl wrapped and call girl card headliner :lol:
Image
Image
and i got bored waitin for my shocks to arrive so i used some of the excess vinyl i have left to wrap the lips of my wheels and it turned out pretty good.
Image
a couple days after that i was bored again and went out and indexed my 27.5mm torsion bars 2 notches from stock wit the nuts all the way loose and shes hammered :D
Image
Image
hopefully i wake up tomarro and damn dirty brown ups will finally bring my shocks so i can throw those on and also get my coil sleeves on the rear(i forgot i had them or they'd be on) and really get a look at the stance. and im on the hunt for a tach like i had in my 1st car a 91 da teg...
Image
there was one on ebay but i didnt buy it and now i cant find it anywhere so the next time i see it...BUY IT NOW!!!! :lol:
