Readily available from any sign shop, and super cheap. This civic is in excellent condition. As well as roller rockers to reduce rotating resistance in the motor. Less pep than a 3hp go cart. Normally I'd agree with you.
May have been a T15 or something equivilent. Exact copy of the original. That's a And thanks for the pointer on the T15 and the bike injectors. I also got the new gasket a fat woven-wire doughnut and midpipe. However, the goal would be to try and get the engine under boost at the low end. I'm actually very interested in having a 3 or 4-lobe roots supercharger slapped on the d15z1 if it can be done at a reasonable price which is questionable. That's a lot to chew on, thanks! Cheers and thanks for looking! You can do things to that motor that make it amazingly efficient, re-tuning it, keeping it in lean burn, etc.
Purchased new in June 14 with less than 2,000 miles. One of the springs was compressed and the bolt slightly bent. The car is registered until January 2016. I have slightly different goals in mind than rrussell, but it just goes to show that you can go a long way with a lean tune. Aero is something I'd look at after getting the engine squared away, but I've got boatloads of help in that department.
. If I could get a T15 to spool up by 1500 rpm then that would suit my needs nicely. The body is clean, the car has virtually no dents or scrapes, it is in immaculate condition, and it starts right up every time! It is my daily driver, however, I stopped using the car regularly in September when I started school. Attaches to midpipe with two spring-loaded bolts. The last 2 owners were in the same family and purchased the car in 1998. Not sure if the bike injectors idea is economically feasible but I'll be sure to look into it.
As far as aero is concerned, well, there's always the Aerocivic mod. Also, it seems that you've pretty much answered my boost questions, or at least set me in the right direction. It also has Vtec that is tuned for fuel economy instead of power, and also has a Lean Burn mode that allows the motor to run very lean while cruising, which sips gas. And the rear diffuser wasn't anything special or beautiful, It wasn't a ferrari style thing. Front and rear diffusers and a grill block can really cut down the cd of a car. Bike injectors seem to have better atomization properties multi-hole type and bumping up the pressure helps with atomization also.
There are other reasons why I'd like to tinker with boost in the low-end but that's another story altogether. I am selling my 1995 Honda Civic Ex Coupe. Fit perfectly and now my car runs quietly. The car is mechanically sound, the engine and transmission are strong, and the car is genuinely fun to drive. She did and was super happy being able to save so much money! I am the 4th owner. You'd probably lose efficiency doing that anyway from a performance standpoint, lowering the static compression just allows you to run more boost safely; but since 6-8psi is the goal that's really not a huge concern.
They are both economy models with next to zero horsepower, but they both get incredible gas mileage. A vx motor in a crx makes for a 60 to 70mpg rig. This Honda is 100% reliable and will take you where you need to go. Injectors shouldn't be too expensive, I wouldn't think. Call me crazy, but I have my reasons. The parasitic losses from running a turbo are lower, too.
You can boost on the low side with a turbo, too. Since I live within walking distance of campus and work I ride my bike everywhere. I don't own a Civic yet this is still up in the air so I'm a bit new to the models and their differences, so any help for this nub would be appreciated. I opened up the spring a bit by twisting a big screwdriver inside it, and straightened the bolt with a vise and hammer. I told the lady to check it out. Coroplast is that plastic that looks like corrugated cardboard, and is used for cheap signs, etc.
I'll try to find the thread for you. Simply, just use a very small turbocharger. You could easily fabricate one with coroplast and rivets.

One day I was sitting in a Ford service shop and overheard a conversation between a Ford service employee and a customer.
