    Talking Howdy

    Just got my 1st ever Honda car. It's a 1988 Civic DX Sedan with a D15B4 1.5 L engine with PGM-FI Dual Point Injection, and a standard 5 speed tranny. The car is stock at this point and in excellent shape considering its age. There are only 2 rust throughs on the entire car and both are on the outside top edges of the rear fender wells with no indication of any body work done to it ever. It also needs a couple of minor dings cleaned up and paint. The motor (if original, which I believe it is) has over 273K miles on it but runs absolutely solid, appears not to burn any oil, and the valves sound fine. So far, I love the thing!

    It's going to be a daily runabout for us at this point. I may, if the motor ever blows up, consider doing a swap and start pumping her up. But for now I'm really looking into doing whatever is doable to pump up the MPG's. My 1st estimate is that it's getting around 34 at the moment. I'll have a more accurate estimate on my next fill-up. I'd like to see it do 45 or better if possible.

    So if anyone has any tips to pump up the MPG's that would be great.

    This is a great board and I've already gleaned a wealth of info from it. Thanks for the great board!

    Default Lights

    How to fix Crappy lights. I wet sanded all crude off with 1000 grit sand paper take your time and get all crude off. Then get Meguiars Fine cut Rubbing Compound. I used a buffer and, some hand rubbing. I tall took about 1 hr per light.

    eric w/ 97 prelude type SH... from ny... new to the site.... my plans, well, gotta alot of new stuff in my car rebuilt h22 block n head and more... but this morning thermostat froze and blew the head gasket because i wasn't in the car when it overheated. i started it when i was gettin ready in the morning went inside and let it warm up. pretty much everything is good on it. i don't wanna pull the head off again and i need a new car anyway for work. i would like to sell it as is and all it needs is a head gasket, but i will sell parts eventually if i can't do that. or fix it and sell it running.

    what i wanna do next is get an h23 w/ low compression pistons and supercharge it or turbo. gotta do more research to find out what performs better.
    n e way, if you got any input or need anything contact me

    hey kids.

    I just bought a 91 Hatch last weekend. We rebuilt the exhaust from the rear flange before the muffler, and installed a new muffler (Thrush, $20 from Advance ).

    its got 170k miles, and was purchased as a beater for my wife to learn stick and to be used as a daily driver until she finishes school in the spring and gets a full-time job.

    my boy paid $200 for it, and I'll be buying it from him (including the work) for a bit more. We initially thought it also needed a power-steering pump, until we realized the 91 civ dx hatch does not have power steering!

    Anyways, my name is Neil an i'm in Greensboro, NC.

    A bit of history: 2 years ago, I owned a 93 Si Hatch for about 3 months, before it was T-boned and totaled. My daily driver is a 95 MX-6 with 180k, bone stock. It currently needs a clutch and a new drivers side door.

    I'm new to civics, but I love cars. I'm not technically savy with cars, but I have a decent understanding of the basics, and I know what I don't know.

    I'll end this overly long post with a question: whats a good bone-yard seat swap for a 91 hatch? I want something thats a direct swap, thats comfortable and supportive (remember, this is my wifes car )

    Im Cody and i recently bought a 92 civic cx ... the guy that sold it to me it a civic expert and helps me out with anything i want to do to the car... he put the stock del sol engine in it before he sold it to me which he says has more horse power than the stock engine.... he also put a new air intake and new springs and struts, and lowered it 6 inches he is a big help but wont really give me a straight answer on what i can do next. i dont know much about cars yet becasue ive only been driving a few years, but i know i like to go fast and i am looking for whatever help i can get to up my cars horsepower and everything else. money is sort of an issue because i do go community college but im taking some time off so i will have a steady income and instalation isnt a problem becasue he can do anything to a civic so any help i could get would be great

    Default Alreet

    Hi everyone.

    I'm the proud owner of a '92 Civic, not sure how you guys equate it to eg, ek or whatever d16z6 motor, basic mods, rims, steering wheel, intake, etc. Just installed two alarm as some little scrote took my last stereo. Working on plans for big mods, but not sure which direction to take this in, was looking at some sort of v6, but its too cold now. Anyone with any ideas feel free to suggest and advise.
