"New" '93 del Sol and "old" '96 Civic Si

It's been about 3 weeks now since I picked up this car.

It's a 1993 Honda Civic del Sol Si with a d16z6 and automatic transmission :S - I hope to swap this to a manual in the next year.

The car has spent most of the last 16 years in a garage. It's never seen snow and almost never seen rain. It's been driven very little in between.

It has just over 152,000km on it.

Aside from the short ram intake with K&N filter, aftermarket head unit, lowering springs and ALT Lite Speed rims, it's completely stock.

Here's the only pic I have of it so far:



Compare this with my 1996 Civic Si that I've had for the last 7 years. It's been an ongoing project. But now that I have the del Sol, I'm faced with a decision - do I sell or do I keep it?

Here's a list of some of the more relevant mods:

- CAI with K&N
- Skunk2 intake manifold
- Skunk2 stage 1 camshaft
- Skunk2 adjustable camshaft gear
- DC Sport 4-2-1 ceramic header
- Magnaflow high-flow catalytic converter
- 2.5" mandrel bent exhaust
- OBX twin-loop muffler
- 8.5lbs flywheel
- Stage 1 clutch
- Megan Racing short shifter
- Silicone coated braided stainless steel brake lines
- Hawk HP+ front pads
- ATE slotted front rotors
- Skunk2 front camber adjusters
- Megan Racing rear camber adjusters
- Skunk2 Pro-S V2 coilovers with 10k front and 8k rear springs
- BWR rear lower control arms
- BWR subframe brace
- BEAKS 22mm ITR sway bar

The motor was rebuilt approximately 90,000km ago. I essentially was building it to eventually become a track car with occasional street use. I took it out a couple of times since the most recent mods and it's a blast to drive.

Here's a recent pic:




I was planning on selling it since I got the del Sol and have had the coilovers, sway bar and subframe brace removed. The rest is staying on. I eventually would like to do the same to the del Sol as I have to the Civic.

Nice del sol. Would be even better with that manual swap.

I've been having a blast with mine. Purchased it with a cut-off muffler past the catalytic and the thing roars!! LOL. This random female yelled out "That's disgusting!" LOL.

Mine needs a paint job and a b swap and its good to go.

Some people just don't know a great sound when they hear one...

Both cars look great. Love the rims on both.
