I'm actually thinking of going with the h22 I had read that putting that motor in the Rex acceleration is like dropping a dfrigeratr off a cliff and th h swaps are pretty reasonable

The build continues minor shit now. But oh so much in store for my baby. The integra she is gone, the crx was almost gone too but fate (and brokeness) spared it's life with me. lol. Ordered corner lights windshield wiper squirter and a bunch of other random things that were broken or needing replacement on my car obligatory pics of such nonsense.

Up next Steering rack bushings are going to be replaced along with the passenger side wheel bearing. And maybe just maybe some paint. can't decide if I want to save the paint for the last thing to do to this car or not. I also bought a passenger side door and a rear disc conversion More pics of those in a bit.

Post Re: Kevin's 1989 CRX SI Build thread
So we got work done this weekend all the way to Thursday. The crx got pretty much every bearing, bushing, axle, balljoint, ladi dadi everybody done on it this past weekend and the rear disc brake conversion was completed. A lot of flipping work was done and it was a struggle/ pain pretty much the whole way but Thanks to, Gabe Lane, James, Ricky, and especialy Cam the car is back up and running well for the most part just little things here and there that I have to fix. Initial ImpressionThe car feels great. We did a quick little jaunt to cam's house and it felt good but I didn't really put my foot in it. I'm Still a little weary of all the work we did so I didn't want to find out the hard way that we didn't tighten a bolt or nut since at the time we finished it was pretty late. Today I'm going to go through everything one time to give it a quick once over to make sure that nothing comes apart and I also have to bleed my brakes one more time since I purchased a 40/40 Prop valve that should hopefully be arriving today. This thread should be pretty dead for a while after this since I have absolutely no want to do anything else. Lol. Next big update will be paint since that doesn't require much work on my end. Lol.

So after running around making noise and dealing with some issues. The car is running perfectly fine after an alignment. The tech did a full adjustment to help the car rotate (thanks to paul's reccomendations. Going to drive the car this weekend and report what the difference is. From driving on the freeway the car feels way more stable and I can drive up to 100 mph and feel no shimmy or shake.

So the crx went in for paint and a new front end :)

................................... ok it really didn't

Found a deal too clean to pass up body is rust free and it already has the JDM front bumper that I was wanting and it was an HF which weighed 1800 lbs back in the day. I plan on weighing this one again like I did the yellow one to get an idea of how much it weighs. Race buckets and official work is starting VERY Soon so I'll be updating this bish a bit more.

Update. Wow it's been two months. Small update to hopefully accompany my big one soon. My E-brake cables came in today this is a pretty big deal for me you have no idea how annoying it is to have to shut your car off so it can stay in one place so you can just check the mail all the time. I had to order new ones because of my rear disc swap.
