UT #MPGBUILD #SWAGWGN 3-stage build
 
Hey guys! I'm new to this forum but not new to the Eco game. I'm mostly in it for fun. Nothing too serious. I am working on a very exciting (IMO) build. It's a 91 civic RT-4WD wagon aka the #SWAGWGN (peep it on Instagram). This old tired bucket of rust has 260k Utah origional miles (OUCH!!). The interior is clean and few from rattles, the frame is straight and the driect rain is solid. For these reasons I have decided to transplant the old oil guzzling heart and replace it with a new (slightly better) one. I'll be starting a build thread shortly and I really hope you will take the time to look thru it and voice opinions and input. I am building a 11.6:1 lean burn motor and recently decided also to turbo it for maximum (volumetric) efficiency. I also picked up air suspension and a few other things to make it functioal but also appealing to the eye. Here is my setup:

D15b7 block
D15b crank
D15b 3-stage vtec head
D16z6 rods with ARP rod bolts
Cometic y8 gasket
ARP Head studs
GT25r ball bearing turbo + Downpipe
Greddy manifold a/c compatible
Apexi VAFC
APEXI boost controller
NEPTUNE tuning

Shooting for 230 whp and 55-60 MPG's with some light aero mods.

And welcome to the forum!

Is "#MPGBUILD" really a thing?

Been thinking about this for a while. Looking forward to the build.

It is. I tag all my posts related to this on IG and FB with that hashtag. Haha

Oh. Hashtags. I call em pound signs.

Anyhow, this will be interesting, will you be providing updates here?

Start a garage page for your hoopy, I want to see how it does.

Big power and big economy are strange bedfellows, but with controllable tuning and boost I think you can have both - just not at the same time.

This project sounds interesting to say the least. BTW are you considering to do something else to this vehicle?
