------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Well, I've officially started modding my 91 Std. Civic Hatch!

The first order of business was to get rid of that ridiculous 4x4 stance and those awful mudflaps! Some H&R Sport Springs took care of that!

Before:



After:



Much nicer! Now on to other issues...

My engine as of now is pretty much screwed. It is only running on 3 cylinders. I think that the previous owner broke a timing belt, causing the valves to bend or break and rather than fixing it he sold it to me! Razz
To top it all off, my distributor bearings are shot, which causes my distributor shaft to overheat. Which, in turn, caused my rotor to melt and eventually fried my TDC sensor. Without a TDC sensor, my ECU threw a code and my car consequently went into limp mode.

So, needless to say, I have decided to go ahead and try my hand at my first engine swap!

A SOHC ZC engine fresh from H Motors has already been ordered and is on the way!



I've already started getting things ready for the swap. I picked up an Injector Resistor Box from a DA Integra LS I found at the junkyard, because my car is DPFI and the ZC is MPFI.




The resistor box, however, looked like ***. It was rusted, pitted, and looked like a twinkie Razz .

So I thought I'd spruce it up a little.

Mid-Polish



Polished With Wire-Wheel



Sanded With 150 Grit



It looks much better now! (For a twinkie, that is...)

The new engine needed a new computer so I bought a PM6 ECU off of E-Bay. Because the SOHC ZC is essentially a D16A6, this computer will work nicely. Maybe down the road a little chipping will give it better fuel management.





And, just for the hell of it I got a shift knob off of that junkyard LS.



***UPDATE 3/27/06***

I de-pinned a few ECU plugs I picked up off of a '90 DX Civic. (http://honda-tech.com/zerothread?id=1573760)

I can now use these pins for any wiring I need to do at the ECU.



Also, be careful when De-pinning...


***UPDATE 3/28/06***

I "Gunked" my engine bay in preparation of the new engine. I figured, the less grease and mess, the better it will be to work on.

So, two cans of gunk and 30 min's later I had a (semi) clean engine bay!




Notice the plastic bags covering the battery tray and the distributor.

***ANOTHER UPDATE 3/28/06***

I went around and got some more stuff I needed for the swap:

NGK Plugs


These plugs are top of the line...

Distributor Cap and Rotor



Oil Filter



Spark Plug Wires



My Ricey Valve-Cover Breather



"1 Quart Suction Gun"


This is for filling my transmission with fluid once it's back on the car.

Coolant



I already got a bunch of 5W-30 Oil, but I still need to find some Penzoil Synchromesh Transmisison Fluid.

***UPDATE 3/31/06***

I picked up the engine today from HMO. Everything looks good from what I can see. It's all wrapped up in plastic and I'm not unwrapping it until I get it off the back of my Dad's truck.

I took the car over to my girlfriend's house and me and her little brother got it on jacks and ready to start working on tomorrow! =)





***UPDATE 4/1/06***

I've been working on the car this afternoon. I removed the hood and then I got the intake assembly out, battery tray out, cat, downpipe, splash sheilds, and I drained the oil and coolant.

The biggest part of the day was getting the engine outta the back of my dad's truck. The engine hoist was broken so we had to "fix" it. A lot of electrical tape and two hose clamps later, it worked well enough to use. So, I've got the engine pulling underway and the new engine sitting by ready to go in!





***UPDATE 4/2/06***

I got the entire wiring harness and all of the ground wires off of the motor. I also drained the tranny fluid and removed the throttle cable. She's getting closer to being removed!

Wiring Harness:


Notice the blue labels. I labelled all the connectors so it would be easier to transfer to the ZC motor.





***UPDATE 4/5/06***

I got to work on the car a little today. I managed to pull the axles off and remove the shift linkage stabilizer bar. I also unwrapped the engine and checked it out. Everything looks great! I came with the whole wiring harness which I was worried about. Now I have the right plugs if I need them.

Axles out of car:


BTW: Some people seem to have problems with the ball joints. This link has a tutorial that works PERFECT and it is simple as hell: http://www.honda-tech.com/zerothread?id=887859 (I used a 26 mm box-end wrench instead of a 1/2 inch socket wrench. It doesn't really matter what you use, so long as it fits snug when the hub is jacked all the way up.)

Engine:






ZC Baby!

Exhaust A-Pipe:


I requested that I be sent the entire exhaust manifold, and HMO came through! I checked, and it bolts right up to my cat! I am stoked that I can use the actual ZC header on the ZC motor instead of modding my nasty Std. one or going after market.

On Friday I am going to try to get that ***** pin out and take off all the radiator, coolant, and fuel hoses. Then I'll be ready to pull the engine and bolt the ZC in this weekend!

***UPDATE 4/7/06***

Well, today I really got some major progress done. The engine is finally out! What I thought was going to be a fairly simple pull turned out to be a bit of a headache. First problem was the ***** pin, which didn't wanna come out for anything.
So I decided to just unbolt it from the shifter. What I didn't realize is that it would hit the crossmember when we tried to pull the engine. :hammer: So we had to lower the car, move the passenger side jackstand, and pull the linkage all the way to the side so it would clear. It finally did and we pulled the motor.
(The fact that the lift kept leaking fluid and we had to add more quickly or risk dropping the engine didn't help either...)

Engine sitting on nothing but mounts and ready to get pulled out:



I found out the radiator fan had to go or the header would hit it on the way out. So off it came.



And once that was done, out it came! (Eventually Razz )







The old, P.O.S. D15B1:



Unfortunately, the weatherman is saying it will rain tomorrow so I covered the car and the new engine sitting near it, and called it a night. Hopefully I will at least be able to get some work done on it tomorrow...

***UPDATE 4/8/06***

Got a little bit of work done today. We managed to fix the lift. Replaced the hose and fittings, clamped it all down, and now it's good to go. (I hope). I started to put the stock wiring harness on the motor. Everything is going good except for the O2 sensor and one of the distributor sensors. I gotta figure those out.

The engine was out of an automatic car, so it still had the torque converter and flex plate attatched. Those were quickly removed.

Torque Converter:



Because there was no clutch, the clutch input pilot bearing wasn't there. I picked up one of those (a nice roller one, not a crappy brass one). Tomorrow I will get the tranny off of the old engine and bolt it onto the new engine as well as get most of the wiring sorted out. I hate wiring already... =(

***UPDATE 4/9/06***

Well, the update that everyone has been waiting for is here! The new engine is in! All mounts have been bolted down, all coolant hoses, vacuum lines, fuel line, throttle cable, clutch cable and some wiring has been hooked up. Any vacuum lines not needed have been plugged. The tranny is in but I still need to connect the shift linkage and shift linkage stabilizer and put in the axles.

Tomorrow I'll be trying to finish the wiring and the other misc. stuff that needs to be done. If I can get the wiring done, then wish me luck cause I'm gonna try to fire it up!

Engine In!









It's even got working AC hooked up!



The pics are obviously before I started hooking stuff up, but you get the idea.
Wish me luck for tomorrow! =)

***UPDATE 4/10/06***

Today I managed to get some work done on the car. I figured out where the negative battery terminal wire went, and hooked that up. (Finally! I felt like such an idiot...) Then I got the axles back in and hooked up all the suspension parts. I got the header bolted onto engine, but then I ran into a problem. While the header may bolt up to the cat, it was about three inches away from it! Me and my girlfriend's dad came up with a solution. We cut the exhaust pipe about 6 inches after the cat on the straight section.

Cut Catalytic Converter:



I went to Advance Auto Parts and picked up a 1.75" to 1.75" coupler and an exhaust clamp.

Coupler and Clamp:



This should allow up to add the neccesary three inches onto the exhaust pipe but still allow me to slide the cat around to meet the header correctly. If I just welded it on, it would allow for no movement. in the end it will look like this:



The part of the coupler against the cat side will be welded on, and the part of the coupler against the muffler side will be clamped after it is in the right position.

***UPDATE 4/11/06***

I managed to get all the wiring done today. After some difficulty with the distributor and TPS, that is. I had to get a little creative with the dizzy plug, lol. I also got the Injector Resistor Box mounted and wired in. Here's some pix of the car as it stands now:

The ECU before I started hacking:



Injector Resistor Box Mounted:



Injectors wired up:





Always label your wires!



Air Intake On:



It took a little creative surgery to get it to fit on the new Intake Manifold. Nothing a little sawzall action couldn't handle!



Exhaust is still waiting to be welded:



My Creative Dizzy "Plug":



I used crimp-on quick disconnects from Radio Shack so that if I needed to take the dizzy off I could. Usually people use an Si plug, but the junkyards around here are crap and had none. Who needs a plug?! Razz

***UPDATE 4/12/06***

CAR IS RUNNING!!!

I filled the engine with oil and coolant, changed the filter, changed spark plug wires, plugs, distributor cap, rotor, and connected the shift linkage and shift linkage stabilizer.

I didn't have the exhaust welded up yet, so it was open header for now. I plugged in the new ECU and turned the key. It started up on the first crank! Man did that thing sound frickin' loud! I took it for a quick drive round the neighborhood just to let the neighbors know I finished the swap Wink

I had a CEL for a code 10 for the IAT Sensor (Intake Air Temperature Sensor). I realized I had the wrong plug on it, so I lengthened the right plug and plugged it up! No more CEL! She runs like a dream now...

***Another UPDATE 4/12/06***

Got the exhaust bolted up, she's not as loud as Normandy on D-day anymore... Razz

***UPDATE 4/19/06***

I started tearing down the old engine to part it out. (I'll be making a for sale thread soon, with inventory of everything I have, so watch out!)

I got the exhaust manifold off, head off, crank pulley and tensioner and water pump off, T-belt covers off, etc. I'm gonna delve into the internals tomorrow or friday =) . So, if anyone needs some D series parts, the block, splash sheilds, those mudflaps I took off Wink , bolts, etc., let me know! I'm parting out everything!

Engine Before:



Engine After:


Notice the parts all neatly stacked underneath on top of plastic. Everything will be cleaned and re-cleaned before selling. So they look like new!

***Update 4/20/06***

Engine Teardown Complete!






***UPDATE 5/1/06***

I went to the local pick and pull to get a lip for the Civic. I found a cool one from a V6 Acura Vigor or Legend or something. I held it up to an EF on the lot and it fit with minor trimming on the edges. Also, on the Civic I test fitted it on, there were a set of nice looking rear mudflaps! I had the set of fronts I removed sitting around and thought, hey, my car wouldn't look all that bad with a full set or flaps on it! So I picked those up.

The best part was, the whole set only cost me $0.70!!! That's right 70 CENTS!!!

Brought the whole set home and stuck them in the bathtub! Yes, that's my toilet in the pic.



The lip is cool, it flares out wider at the end kinda like a mugen lip:


Tomorrow I'm taking off the bumpers and painting them along with the trim peices so that they aren't so faded. =)

***UPDATE 5/2/06***

Front bumper is off. I decided not to do that rear bumper, and just to mask it off. The front kinda needed to be removed though...

First I had to undo the headlights and turn signals. Then I removed that "filler" peice between the hood and the bumper. You can't get to the screws without doing this, so off it came:





Then I finally could get to the screws that held on the bumper. And off it came!





And then I bolted up the headlights and turn signals and I was good to go! It's gonna look good finally painted along with the rest of the trim.



***UPDATE 5/3/06***

Got the lip installed and started painting! The lip needed a little modding to get it to fit. It was about 3 inches too wide, so I just forced it, clamped it, screwed it on and called it a day! Worked great! Clamping the corners in position first and then screwing it in really helped.

Clamped on:








I just forced the corners into place and then clamped it. Once the self-tapping screws and washers were on, I took off the clamps and voila! I got me a lip!

This is the paint I used. It works awesome!



Fumes getting to me: Surprised



My high-tech paint booth: Razz



After two coats and cutting excess lip off:




The paint is not glossy, it only looks like that because it is still wet. You can really see how good the lip came out in this pic! =)

***UPDATE 5/4/06*** (Yes, I know the update is late... Razz )

I masked off the entire car and finished painting the rest of the trim. It looks awesome! Maybe tomorrow I will get some shots with the real digi-cam after a nice wash. =) On with the pics!

Masked off side trim and rear bumper:

Let the painting begin!











Masked off the window trim after side trim dried:





It looks sooo good after drying. This was all done at like 12:30 at night Razz , so the following morning I removed the rest of the masking tape and plastic. I am so happy with how the lip turned out also. Looks amazing...

***UPDATE 5/29/06***

Not really an update, but I just wanted to show some "finished product" pics of the lip. Gave the car a nice wash n' wax, so here she is!







So, I need to borrow a digi-cam, I know, but I think she looks pretty damn good for a '91!

BTW: Look what the UPS man brought me!



Apexi WS II Exhaust! WOOT! I just gotta get my header and test pipe and it's all going on! Hehe, can't wait. :thumbup:

***UPDATE 6/1/06***

I went out and bought jdm_ef3's Si tranny, Centerforce Dual Friction Clutch, and Si Flywheel. The 4.250 final drive and five gears (Vs. my stock trannies four gears) should be really nice...

Clutch w/ Flywheel attached:

It's not rust, it's painted orange. Razz

Tranny: (Shitty pix, I know...)


Hardware:


I gotta get a header and test pipe, and then EVERYTHING is going in at once. I should be able to feel quite a difference! =) :thumbup: :thumbup:

***UPDATE 6/3/06***

This was ordered last night off of RobearRacing.com:

Megan Racing Header:







The stock header for the SOHC ZC is actually not that bad! It's a tubular header! However, the flange is a JDM one, (of course) and won't bolt up to my cat. (Correctly, that is. It's working now, but kinda crooked and with a MAJOR buzzing exhaust leak =( ) So, I am getting an Omni Power Test Pipe from DA-nteg so that when I am just normally riding around, I can have the performance I want, but when inspection time comes, the stock cat will bolt up to the header! It's perfect!

I'll probably lose a little power down low, but will gain up top where it counts! Wink :thumbup:

***UPDATE 6/19/06***

I went out and got some flange's for the test pipe that I now have to make! The Omni Power seller backed out, so I gotta fab up my own! I had a little trouble finding them, but got them at Napa! Who'da thunk it? Razz

I immediately have a problem though. The donut gasket on the header (or whatever it's called) makes the flange stick out quite a bit!

The Flange:




The Donut Gasket:



And, putting the two together:





I think that all it needs is to be tightened down REAL tight with the exhaust bolts. Wudya think?

Here's a pic of the flange on the header without the donut gasket:


Fit's real flush! Razz

The exhaust pipe flange actually fits awesome, thank God.



What should I do about the header flange?

***UPDATE 6/27/06***

I got the header and exhaust on! Due to the shitty rain, I doubt I'll be able to put the tranny on tomorrow. =(

But here's the pix for today! =)

First order of business was to get the old exhaust manifold off. That sucked! It's a good thing I never put it together correctly to begin with or it would have been really tough! Razz

New header on:



Here's a real testament to Megan Racing. It bolted up PERFECTLY with the stock exhaust system and fit with NO problems. Here's to the nay-sayers Beer:


Perfect fit. Then I go and mess with it some more... Wink

Then I had to pull off the stock exhaust.




Looks so puny compared to my new one! (1.75" vs. 2.36" =) )

New exhaust:


Bit of a gap there, we'll fix that later! Razz




I was a bit concerned that due to the age of the exhaust hanger that the muffler would sit crooked like I've seen in so many pix, but it sits absolutely parrallel to the bumper. Looks great! I couldn't be happier!



Now to fill in that gap! I measured, measured, and measured one more time then broke out the saw-zall!

Here's the un-welded test pipe mocked up:




That last pic shows how I marked the correct clocking. Not only do you need the corect length, but you need the flanges to be rotated correctly in relation to each other.

So, as soon as the test pipe gets welded, I can bolt it all up and let her rip! I took her out on open header just for the hell of it, and wow, that was loud! Razz

***UPDATE 7/10/06***

Just bought this off of eBay: It was only $30 shipped, so I figured why the hell not, beats my ghetto-rigged intake and will give me a couple horses.



***UPDATE 7/14/06***

I received my BPE (***** Pin Extraction) tool in the mail today. I am getting ready to put my Si tranny in and didn't wanna risk having problems with the ***** Pin like I had last time. I got a limited time budget, so I need everything to go smoothly. =)

Tony at Cheap Trix Racing hooked me up! Very innovative little tool...

No more lost ***** pins and no more frustration from not getting the Roll Pin Punch to work. (Didn't work 4 me... =( )

The Tool:


The punch pushes the pin right into the little cylinder, so it comes out nice and easy and isn't flung across the garage!


Expect a tranny install soon! =) =)

***UPDATE 7/17/06***

My intake came today! I had it installed in no time! I didn't really feel that much of a difference, but man did I hear it! It screams now...

My girlfriend (who is a big time mustang whore, a.k.a., never impressed with my car at all...) said "Wow, that sounds awesome!" That means the Ebay intake gets a big :thumbup: from me!




***UPDATE 8/2/06***

I removed the Charcoal Canister just for the hell of it, and to clear up some space.





***UPDATE 8/18/06***

Well, a long overdue update. I got some goodies! Some for speed, some for the hell of it.

Autometer Carbon Fiber A/F Guage installed! I didn't have a cigarette ligher anyway so I figured I could stick it in there. Looks clean and out of the way. It's still visable so I can keep an eye on whether I go lean. It's pretty much useless during normal driving, but when you floor the gas, it'll tell you whether you're running rich or lean or stoich. nothing more, nothing less. And that's all I need... Wink



I also got a center console and a GSR leather shift boot! Here it is all mocked up. I need to paint it black as it is an ugly poop brown color.



And here it is, an actual Si transmission. Finally! I did these two tests on it before bringing it home, lol.




Junk in da Trunk!




***UPDATE 9/1/06***

Started the tranny install! Should be finished with it tomorrow.

Surgical area exposed:


Dizzy and clutch cable removed:


All suspension components and axles removed:


Starter out. BTW: Centerforce Dual Friction Clutch and Si flywheel that's gonna get my power to the ground once the nitrous kit gets here. Wink


All tranny mounts removed and the engine supported with a jack:


Look whats sitting in the trunk!


That's as far as I got today. The tranny is completely seperated, I just gotta undo the bolts holding it to the motor and I'll slide her out! I didn't wanna leave it unbolted cause it could bend the shaft.

I was actually pretty pleased, the whole process only took me 3 hours. I'm getting better at this, lol. =) :thumbup:

***UPDATE 9/2/06***

The old tranny is out! Peice of cake other than that goddamn ***** pin!!! =(



FUCK top speed and gas mileage!



Yay for pure acceleration! :thumbup:



While I had all mounts out I decided to make them pure solid mounts. 3M Windo-Weld is a urethane polymer that stiffens up motor mounts really well. Just fill in all the gaps with it and 24 hrs later you have wheel-hop killing solid mounts!






Doesn't look pretty but it works!

The new tranny has been fully prepped for install and is ready to go! I think I may just do it tomorrow cause I want to give the mounts time to cure properly.

***UPDATE 9/6/06***

I ordered my nitrous kit today! =) I decided to go with a H-T sponsor instead of Summit Racing. Plus, they had much better prices! :thumbup: For Titan Motorsports! http://honda-tech.com/zerothread?id=1736417

Here's the kit I went with:



The only thing about the kit I don't like is the fact that it is push button activation. A buddy of mine says he has some WOT switches laying around, so I'll see if I can snag one off of him.

Now I just gotta order the rest of my safety features and I'll be ready to spray!

I will add updates on the swap progress and other misc. stuff as it comes!

nice, you chose to get my recomendation lol. that motor is nice, youll love it. I have an obdII one in my eg. Im still running to crapass dx ecu though, so my redline isnt at 7200 rpms yet, but soon it will be!! Didnt they send you the wiring harness and ecu?? you could have just re-wired the car and used the ecu, and you shouldnt have to de-pin anything???

No, they don't sen the ECU with it. The best way to do the wiring is to transfer the Std. harness over to the ZC motor. I got a PM6 ecu, as you can see. the redline of it isn't 7200, it's 6500. Do you know what the redline for the SOHC ZC motor is?

Except for the plugs, ya. I got the best that Autozone had to offer. I'm not gonna be doing alot of high-performance to it so there's really no need.

because the b16 is a joke... and vtec is overrated. I have the sohc zc and can hang with a stock b16 all day long. The redline should be either 72-7300 rpm stock. I still havent changed mine lol. Just when the car starts to get loud I have to switch gears Evil or Very Mad
Youll be happy with it. You can leave it as is and have fun, or turbo it and be a beast later.

Lack of $$$$$$$$.

Plus a turbo SOHC ZC would be much more cost effiecient if i wanted to go fast.

The body of that EF is very nice, just a shame it is the 4 spd model. That model is harder to convert (overall) than the DX. I would still build it though because of how nice the body is. You will love that SOHC ZC, my SOHC ZC was faster than my DOHC ZC. Both were modded the same, I couldn't figure why the sohc was better powerwise but it was. It impressed me greatly cause I don't even like SOCH's.

I think the sohc actually has mroe tq. I know the d slams have more tq overall, but on alot of sites youll get dif info for the 2 motors as their specs.

Yeah I bet you are right cause that SOHC pulled hard compared to the DOHC. The DOHC seemed like a waste of loot to me overall.
