1991 CRX Si

Postby jeremo » Mon May 11, 2015 10:58 am

Hey everyone, new to the honda community. I just purchased a 1991 CRX that has been setup for STS SCCA.

Here are the specs.

Engine totally rebuilt and trans has been fully refurbished as well. No expense spared in build!
Has unorthodox crank pully, tuned ECU, full ceramic coated DC header, AEM short ram intake, short throw shifter, etc.
Suspension:
Koni SPSS3 race valved shocks with Ground Control coilovers 430F/500R.
Full Energy Suspension bushings throughout with exception of brand new Honda trailing arm bushings.
Rear adjustable upper control arms.
ASR rear sway bar.
New wheel bearings all around.
Wheels and Tires:
Car is equipped with Enkei RPF1 wheels, update, R1R Toyos with decent tread.


The one problem I am having is fitting in the car comfortably. It has a corbeau Sport Fixed Back Forza Racing Seat in the driver side. This pretty much puts you straight up and down in the honda. I can fit just fine with my head, but my back kills since it has no lumbar support.

I'm 6'2" and my co driver is 5'10" so we need to be able to swap out easily. Right now if i remove the cushion in the corbeau i fit just fine, but i'd like to be able to adjust the seat more than just forward and backwards.

What is everyone else running these days? It's a great seat, just not very comfortable i this particular car.

I have a Kirkey seat. The rear of the seat is on the floor, the front is on the hump where the OE seat bracket bolts. It gives me (6'-4") just enough lay back.

There's a guy locally that has a kirkey also, I haven't looked at how it's mounted but this will give me a great excuse to swing by his shop.

I'll see what I can do about getting you some photos.

Perfect,

Unfortunately, i got ran off the road and hit a rock, so the car is a little out of the loop at the moment, gives me time to figure out the seat situation. As it stands i'm looking for a front bulkhead, insurance is a joke, the car is worth $5,500 all day, the car has over $10,000 in it and they value it at $2,200

So..i may just be salvaging the car and fixing it myself with a good repair shop and frame rack. Or finding a donor shell and swapping everything over to it.

decisions decisions.

I am 6'0" and I have a corbeau fx1 in my 89 crx si, mated autopower 4pt roll bar and I gotta say it fits me comfortably for a racing seat.
