Midious 91 CRX/// BOOM goes the b16

Postby midious » Thu Jun 02, 2011 10:30 pm

Hello all,

Long time board lurker first time poster :P.

Ive owned my crx for about 3 years now, she has a little over 595,000 miles on the clock and has been a blast to own and drive.

Has a b16a, skunk 2 megapower/noise exhaust and some other odds and ends, I know you all love pics here so Ill just get to those

The car when I bought it
Image

Had the usual rust spots but not too bad, the clearwas starting to flake off and peel as well
Image
Image

Sooooooooo over the winter I decided to get her fixed up and have some fresh paint put on
Image
Image
Image
Image
Image

My first look atthe finished product
Image
Image

Had to drive it without a windshield to the shop to have glass put in, was very fun :rofl:

Looks nice! I already like you! :D Your prompt response makes me happy! :P Keep us updated through the build!

I think if you took a nice microfiber cloth to that bay, it wouldn't look too shabby! :P

Thermal R&D exhaust :-)b I have one and love it. I like where this build is headed, only thing I would suggest is to put the H emblem on the hood since it looks empty without it, and I would lower it a tad more. :-)b

I like it to blind onlookers. Can't wait for new paint to be waxable. Can only glaze it for now :(

So I was driving to work this morning horsing around with a co worker when I started to get a misfire, check engine light came on. I had no idea a b16 with a misfire sounded like a boxer engine :biggrin:



So I pulled the plugs and inspected, wires, cap and rotor all looked ok, found one of my injector harness connectors was missing the clip
Image
Image
So just like I used to on my 300zx I made one out of a paper clip
Image

ECM also had a code for the o2 sensors so I replaced both of them as well while I was there
Image

And im actually getting about 35mpg now up from about 29mpg
