Vitamin D: from concept to creation ('93 Honda Civic del Sol Si build)

Hey everyone.

It's been a while since I posted on civicforumz.ca. I thought I would share what I've been up to.

Since I bought my 1993 Honda Civic del Sol Si it's gone through a number of changes. In 2012 it was a stock d16z6 automatic transmission del Sol Si with lowering springs and a short-ram intake. The car was in mint condition and only had 150,000 original kms (~93,000 miles). I decided almost immediately that it needed to change. The process began in the spring of 2013.

Each item that has gone into and onto the car was thoroughly researched.

I love this car.

Suspension:
- Skunk2 Pro-S V2 coil-overs: 10K front, 8K rear springs
- Buddy Club extended ball joints
- Skunk2 Pro-Series camber adjusters
- Skunk2 Black Series lower control arms with red polyurethane bushings
- Black BWR sub-frame brace
- BEAKS 22mm Integra Type-R sway bar
- unknown manufacturer upper strut bar

Rims/Tires (track):
- 15" bronze Rota Circuit 10
- BF Goodrich Rival 205/50/15 front and back

Brakes:
- DC2 front knuckles/spindles
- Re-drilled Brembo blank 11.1" Prelude SR-V rotors
- Integra Type-R calipers
- Hawk HP+ pads front
- Hawk HPS rear
- Russell braided stainless-steel brake lines
- 1" Integra Type-R master cylinder and booster

Transmission:
- S40 B000 5-speed (Japan)
- Quaife LSD
- Skunk2 gun-metal Type-R shift ****
- Exedy Pro Kit clutch
- 11.4lbs Competition Clutch flywheel
- ARP flywheel bolts
- Innovative Mounts Auto-Manual transmission mount (red 60A polyurethan)

Engine Block:
- d16z6
- resurfaced 0.004", rebuilt (Top-Line gasket kit)
- bored to 75.5mm
- P29 pistons (Nippon Racing) - 75.5mm
- NPR piston rings
- ACL race bearings
- ARP rod bolts
- crank journals resurfaced
- miscellaneous parts (i.e. water pump, belts, etc) all Honda OEM
- Innovative Mounts engine and transmission mounts (black 75 A polyurethane)

Engine Head:
- d16z6 head
- resurfaced 0.004"
- Bisi level 2 camshaft
- AEM Tru-Time camshaft gear
- ARP head studs
- Nippon Racing 75.5mm MLS head gasket
- NGK Iridium IX (BKR7EIX)
- d16y8 intake manifold - ported to 60mm and polished inlet and runner outlets
- 58mm d16z6 throttle body with KMS FITV block-off plate (60mm b18 planned)
- generic CAI with K&N filter

Exhaust:
- Megan Racing 4-2-1 header
- Magnaflow high-flow catalytic converter
- Tanabe Medalion 2.25" exhaust

Engine Management:
- P06 chipped
- Tuned on Crome

Other:
- Mishimoto aluminum radiator
- B&M Fuel pressure gauge

Here are some pics from when the suspension, transmission and brakes were done in 2013:

Here are a few shots of the engine build process this year.

A few of the parts (note the box says STD but the top of the piston has 0.50 stamped on it):

I've seen you car/posts on another forum, I'd like to get out on the track with you some day next season. I always liked Del's. I too own a 2 seater Honda, just an old beater CRX.

Great post and hope to see more of this car posted here!

Hey Dusty!

That would be awesome. I'd love to see your CRX on the track.

Thanks for the kind words.

See you next year!

I definitely do.

An extensive amount of time went into researching and planning this project. It's an awesome feeling when the result of all that effort can be put on the track and exceed expectations.

This has really been a "built not bought" project.

But of course it's not over... It's never over.

CRX is under the knife (see the build thread I'm about to post right after this message...

It's not a track toy, it'll be daily duties. The DB1 integra I have is my track car. I know it sounds backwards but the teg already was a gutted semi build track slag when I got this CRX.

And you're right, it's never over.
