'94 Civic Sedan Build (previously turbo... now a D15Z1 VX OEM rebuild/swap)

So I bought a EG Sedan again.

Long story short, I ended up being the second owner. Met the original owner who bought it brand new at a Honda dealer in Germany of '94.

Its rough rough. Drivetrain is perfectly sound though.

I am uploading pictures at the moment so bare with me.

Currently in the process of Disc Swap in the rear. When I finish I will be doing Type R's in the front.

Then the Wire Tuck.

Then the turbo.

Main goal is to build the hell out of the suspension and Turbo the B7.

Alil progress today before the rain hits:

Mounted the Manifold/Turbo. Ran the Feed Line. Cleaned up the Block. Thought about taking the trans out. And then I got a Call. So here's where I left off:





Oh and my trusty Snapon makes everything easier.

Cheers.

So its been almost a week since I have updated this thread. Sorry for the lack of photos. Been getting **** done lol.

Turbo, Downpipe, Intercooler pipes, Sandwich plate, injectors, and resistor box are all done.

Thanks to Gene at Murray's auto for the quick turnaround time on the tapped oil pan. Put in alil time grinding down the oil pan bung bead to get it decent looking. Then instead of painting it, I decided to go a different route. Was going to wrinkle it but decided against it as all the gravel and everything else that will hit it.

So I had a can of undercoating left. Fuggggg it, sprayed it down with undercoating. Rubberized and Tough as nails. Came out very nicely.

Really wanted to go AN fitting but the turnaround time on getting my hands on one was ehhhhhh. So for the time being it will be the generic rubber drain until I can get my fitting in the mail.

Before:



After:







Then, my neighbors lil kid was being super annoying. So instead of being outside bolting up my pan, I decided to skip 100 questions with her and come inside to make this:



Being the wiring nut I am and the desire to keep **** as simple and clean with attention to detail, **** hacking up the OE wiring. I didnt have a 8 pin male connector on tap, so I grabbed the next best thing I had and repinned the female and made an adaptor harness for the resistor box. When I can stumble on a male 8 pin connector, I will put it back to factory. For now, it works though. I can instantly go back to OEM with no problems what so ever.









Scored these for $50.





And how she sits now:







Up next is:

Install Oil Pan
Strip / Paint VC
Mount IC
Wire Tuck
Powder Coat HX Wheels White
Mount Tires
Rear Brake Rotors
Rear Pads
Mount ebrake Cables
AEM Wideband
Boost Gauge
EGT Gauge
Oil Pressure Gauge

Ordered all this shizz last night;

ARP Lug Studs
Timken Bearings
Moog Endlinks
Moog Balljoints
Moog Sway Bar Bushings
Hawk Ceramic Pads
Caliper Rebuild Kit
Slotted Rotors


Next on the list to order;

GC Extended Top Hats
Camber Arms
SS Braided Brake Lines
Rear LCA's
Subframe Brace

Next on the to-do list;

Ball Joints, Hubs, ARP's Pressed in.
Strip down, rebuild, and install DC Calipers
Install DC FLCA's.
Powder Coat Front Sway.
Install DC Front Sway Bar.
Powder Coat DC Front Subframe.
Install DC Front Subframe Brace.
Strip/Powder Coat/Install Front DC Knuckles
Strip/Powder Coat/Mount HX Wheels
Install GC/Tokico Combo.
Install Del Sol Drivers Seat.

I drilled the whole slightly off centered, drill squander. So I had to slot the IACV. Aside from that, it bolts on. According to all the write-ups I saw, people just drilled 2 through and through holes. I didnt. I drilled the left hole through, and the right hole 3/4's through. Then I brought the TB Flange to meet it. I am hoping this acts as a 5spd Manual legitly now. If not, I will tap the TB hole and just drill the right hole through.

Some pics of the y8 manifold:

So I think the build thread may change a bit.

I just picked up a D15Z1 and thinking about OEM rebuilding it and putting it in the 4dr. I have everything for it but the exhaust manifold and fire wall egr black box.

I think it would be nice to see a suspension orientated 4dr with a Eco-Friendly motor.

Of course it would be tucked and cleaned.

Thoughts?

Turbo Kit is gone.

Here is the new motor:

Got the VX motor torn down. Debating on Soda Blasting or Elbow Grease to clean her up. Then hone and surface the block and back together she goes!





Before:


After:




As she sits now.



Door handles have all been replaced as 3/4's of them were broken when I got the car.

Waiting on 1 more HX wheel before I can put the back two on.

Ordering extended top hats and lca's tomorrow.

Waiting on my engine rebuild for the VX as well.

Soon as I finish the engine the B7 is getting yanked. Then wire up the VX swap.


Got all my wiring diagrams lined up to factory wire in the VX swap.

Also got my old cluster back from Poormanstyper. Gonna wire up the upshift light for the full VX look.

Hopefully after that I can start working on the exterior.

This week(end) should be a big one for her. all the rebuild parts are ordered. Dropping the last of the engine pieces to be blasted off tomorrow.

By the end of the week, the B7 will be in a customers car and she should be rolling around with a Brand New VX motor.

Debating on a Mild or Full tuck. Havent really decided yet.
