    my integra -- comments!

    Current condition of car as of April 2010:


    ____________________________________________________________________________________________________

    This thread is going to mark my progress with my 1992 Acura Integra LS. I am doing a complete restoration of the car, inside and out, to the best of my ability, as I am doing 99% of the work myself (paint, help, etc. account for what I don't do). This thing won't be slapped together in a few weeks, or even months. There is no time frame and I have no set budget in mind. This is my first car, and was my brother's, so I wanna do everything right and make it virtually a new car. So this is gonna be a slow build, with progress determined by the amount of time I get to work on the car, funds, school, and sorta my social life, just a little bit. I'm posting it here as motivation for myself to keep updates constant and for any info/questions I need, but I'm hoping it's a motivation to others as well. Enjoy yo!

    History of the car:
    -Used to be my brother's back in the 90s
    -Has been through a number of motor swaps (used to be auto)
    -Was beat up a bit when he owned it
    -Gave it to me in April 2009
    -Started working on it in June
    -B20Vtec that was in the car took a shit, got a B16A
    -Still working on it

    This was in summer 09


    This was the build list from summer 09. It's just the basics:

    Motor:
    B16A, rebuilt to OEM spec
    68mm throttle body
    ARP head studs
    ITR intake manifold
    I/H/E
    255 fuel pump
    Oil catch can

    Tranny:
    YS1
    Lightweight flywheel idk brand
    Some aftermarket clutch
    Short shifter

    Exterior:
    Side markers from Weak Sauce
    JDM one piece headlights
    Yellow fogs
    Rear wiper delete

    Interior:
    Tenzo R seats
    Sparco racing harness
    Momo steering wheel

    Suspension:
    Ground control coilovers in front
    Eibach springs on stock shocks in back

    Wheels and tires:
    17" Motegi 4x100 white
    Yokohama tires



    General overview of what I'm going for:
    -Repaint Milano Red (interior, exterior, engine bay)
    -Make the interior sexy for da beyotches
    -Wire tuck
    -Suspension setup for track (coilovers, camber, chassis reinforcement). I'm making this car my weekend warrior.
    -Color scheme of red and gold/bronze, with some blue accents
    -Stock B16A with I/H/E


    Here's when I first got her and what I've done since then:

          still has a ways to go with the de-ricing, but it is moving right along.

          keep it up should be a nice DA in no time.

            Looking good. If they are original stanley clear sidemarkers they are probably off a jdm s2k seeing as how the sidemarkers from our integras and s2ks are the same. You can probably make some money off them so don't throw them away!

                        update: car may have rod knock i did a valve adjustment today; there was still a ticking noise that rose w/ rpms and high idle. and i still can't find a bumper and hood!

                          no one cares?

                          anyways, this guy from a local car forum is selling a b16 swap for $1200. my motor has rod knock so i'm getting it i'm gonna rebuild the b20v, though, and drop it back in once its done

                          just taking off some stuff while i had some time in preparation for pulling the motor:

                                Nice! Great job!

                                How come you put the exhaust on the pass side?

                                  Thanks a lot guys

                                  Integ-four, when my brother had the car, he got a custom exhaust. So that bend where the muffler is on the stock is cut out and it's just straight through

                                    Got some updates! I got the B16 today for $1300. Came with P28 ecu, oil catch can, distributor, and a shitty ass DC Sports header. Should be puling the b20v soon and dropping this in. Then on with the rebuild









                                    I got the B16 from a local guy who was going to do a project but didn't have time. Some details on the motor:
                                    -rebuilt with stock internals. Zero miles when I got it!
                                    -ITR intake manifold
                                    -obd1 conversion

                                      looks like a solid motor, I hope it runs a well as it looks

                                        the guy who rebuilt the motor did a build thread on it and from what i saw, it's pretty solid. here's the link actually: http://www.nyspeed.com/forums/showthread.php?t=62122

                                          i got updates yoooo

                                          so today, i disconnected everything from the motor in order to pull it out. dude, sooo many hoses and shit but my friend and i are gonna pull the motor tomorrow, then i shall proceed to clean the bay. anybody have any good suggestions on going about this? once the bay is clean and all is good, i'll drop the b16 in. i also need to buy an engine stand which means more money spent it'll be good in the long run so money well spent i guess

                                          well, got some pics for ya. here they areeeee

                                          my buddy dave, who's helped me soo much with this car

                                            sup guys. its been a while but i've got updates for yaa

                                            pulled the b20 early saturday morning! while the motor was out i cleaned up the bay with some simple green. good stuff also removed a/c

                                            me an my bro in law swapped the b16 tranny with the ys1 (the b16 didn't have a clutch disc, and we already know the ys1 works). went and got honda mtf for it tuesday, we dropped in the b16. the header was a bitch to get in! i had to loosen the cross member in order to get it on...there was no clearance otherwise. maybe that's what you're supposed to do?

                                            it starts just fine except it started squirting oil everywhere near the firewall area. idk what it was so this is where i need your guys' help...i'm sure i plugged everything back to where it needed to be...

                                            i only took a few pics:
                                            this was before i cleaned it. i didn't take an after pic




                                            dark and hard to see, but its in there

                                              It started squirting oil out of the back of the engine? I'm willing to say it's the oil pressure sending unit...

                                                  thanks man! the header wouldn't clear the space between my cross member and the motor so i loosened up the cross member and took off the front motor mount to get it on
