This Civic already stinks so we may as well add a Skunk. We saved this nugget from automotive apocalypse and now we are fixing it. But the more we do, the more problems we find. Luckily we bought a 2nd hand Skunk and fed it some Mugen with a spoon...

Hey guys ,I really do think that's the wrong oil pump, "PR4" is a part # for the non-vtec engines (B18A/B), you would need "PR3" (B16A1-4) or "P72" (B18C1) or "P73" (Type-R)

I currently have an ST205 Celica GT4 and a 98 Integra (essentially a civic). My Honda is closer to my heart than the GT4. As others have said, there is something about the 'feel' of the car. I feel like Hondas are the energetic puppy, happy to spring up and go for a run. Then of course super reliable. I also enjoy things that rev!

Canadian perspective on the honda love: Performance japanese cars in decent shape are $20k, civic in decent shape $2k. Everything here rusts so if it wasnt made in the millions or the last 10 years it is just crazy expensive.

So in the states we hate on people with civics because they are usually rice boxes. I like the old 90's hatch backs and curvy (or boxy but that's the only way I like a curved hatch) usually, or unless they have lots of meetup lines without being bulky like a widebody BRZ or GT86 or something with tons of aero. although WRC cars really do something for me. I like a sleek design with a curvy hatch. slammed hatch I prefer either way.

If I accidently installed a part with the logo not oriented properly, I'd have to strip everything back apart to fix it. That means replacing all the gaskets that are ruined now after taking it apart again. The OCD is REAL...

Also you should go back and shim your oil pump with a washer or two to up your oil pressure a bit to prolong the longevity of that little motor.

You poor twits Honda motors have the VIN plate attached to them for the corresponding car they came from. You could have searched for it and gave that Honda parts man the VIN number and been well on your way.

You should never ever use brake cleaner to clean something before you weld. I know you said you brushed it and cleaned it again.. but welding over residual brake cleaner can produce phosgene gas that can kill you. If you use brake cleaner, make sure it's non-chlorinated.

Civic had built a reputation for reliability in the US by the 90's. That has a lot to do with it. Affordability was probably next, parents bought their kids these for their first car....and then there is the ubiquitous nature of the vehicle and its parts. Anyone can work on them....mix in a movie called Fast and Furious, and boom...

Moog you asked why a Civic? Here in Canada they were everywhere. The age of F&F was a big motivator and the fact that things are cheap and easy to work on. Great starter car. My 97 Si really helped me be able to work on my 17 Golf R and 17 Focus RS. I still have the old girl, but its on the back burner now obviously.

No tuner type cars what so ever... Just look how much now the markets changed in terms of types of vehicles from 1999 to now in the usdm

Throw a gear kit and some decent slicks on it before you take it to the track. It's definitely not going to be fast compared to other cars you've owned and worked on but you'll be pleasantly surprised how fast it can be driven and how capable it'll be at the track. Smiles per $ is way up there.

Not sure if you really care, but in the early 2000’s the WRX, Evos, and the STI came to the USA. My 93 civic with less than $8000 total invested including the purchase of the car, gobbled all these cars up. I made 215.4whp with an LS/vtec build and my car weighed barely over 2000lbs. I ran 12’s at the strip and the car was my daily driver, not comfortable though. Not the fastest car, but very little on the road could keep up on mountain roads or from a dig. It was fun, loud, scary at speed, cheap, and quick. My civic had a reputation, people sought me out to race. I was “that green 4-door,” it still makes me laugh. Miss that car. K-series are awesome, but my heart is with the b.

Why people like Hondas: they are lightweight, you can get every racing part and put it from one to another and they are cheap... They are very good at cornering, you put upper, lower strut bars, coilovers, a traction bar, and it handles much better. put some aero, some turbo boost and it will be competitive with three or more times more expensive cars on a track. Because of it's double wishbone suspension and little inertia it flies like a gocart. You'll go on a track, you'll see how nice it goes, but I have a bad feeling about the 6gen hatch choice, as I owned one and it handles not so good as the 5th gen or 4th gen. Must be something about the suspension geometry that makes it feel different. The 5th gen sedan with a low turbo boost did handle so perfectly I could go 150kmh sideways and fully control the car and it weighted 1030kg, without any weight reduction. The longer wheelbase and tail makes you feel safe that it will not pass the front end the instance you've lost traction in the rear as you should get with a hatch. (keep the tail soft, better play with anti roll bars, have a big ass wang lol to keep it as a dart arrow) However with a 4gen hatch the tail does not lose it's grip so instantly, maybe because the rear wheels are almost out of the rear end, idk. But the weight of those ef hatchbacks are maybe 800kg or so, so probably that is why those Japanese kanjo guys love them so much. I bet you've seen the Jordan Cox pass lol :D Anyways I am very happy that you guys chose building a civic, as they are underrated cars just because most of them are owned by broke guys, who can not build them properly... And the main problem of a racing world Hondas is that you can not put a turbo in them and just go, because you'll have to put a half of a train rail in it due to the weight regulations, so it becomes like a Bruce Lee on drugs with a bag of bricks, what makes it pointless... Luckily there are time attack events, where you can see how it would look in a fair world.

the old hondas are cheap and realy good . i owned 9 honda,s now and stil having 5 ,, my son owns 2 and we love to work on them and they handle very very good... and engines live is very long.. 900.000 klm is normal. So great brand thanks to mister Honda who is dead now. Sadly thing is not a lot people like them. because they dont know the cars , they drive like race cars with there double wishbone system. Some Honda.s are exspensive now,, NSX ,, for example ..

I can't believe they required a vin number to order parts. Any time I go to a dealership in america with just a part number, I can buy whatever I need with no questions asked. You can even just give make and model and they will pull up diagrams to help find what you need.

I love Honda's reliable engineering and the 90's shows the simplicity of the Honda engineering back in the day. It's very visceral when done correctly. Just overall fun to drive. I don't own any now, but I still love and miss my Honda CRX, Civic, and Integra.

I have a civic and an s2000. Non-honda guys buy an s2000 and immediately rant and rave over how easy they are to work on. Guys like me that started with a civic hate working on our s2000. The civic seems like every bolt was carefully placed so that you can fit a wrench or tool on, in and around it. I'm never scared to fix something on the civic.
