>>25912468
most people who tried it thought it was fun to drive. its an autocross king, and usually finishes at the top, even above GT3s and Corvettes. its highly durable on the track, according to an anon who is the only one who posted with experience with one. it has an engine co-developed by Cosworth, and is the least expensive hybrid sports car to maintain, even less than the i8.

did you want it to cure cancer?
>>
>>25912548
Not him but I think people were expecitng a $100K car, and not a $157K car, meanwhile forgetting the original NSX was like $141K in today's money in 1990, and it wasn't nearly the car the newest one is.

Whats the safest to mill a k20 head down?

Finally got my shit cracked open, block is good, head is warped to .007, and i heard max safe is milled/shaved to .008. Do i risk having this head machined for a couple hundred, or jjst spend 1k on a new prb1 head?
>>
>>25913759
I would get another head, whether it's new or a good used one, because I couldn't recommend messing around with machine work on a DOHC Honda that's clearly been overheated to begin with.

Thinking about looking at an '05 TSX that's an hour away this weekend. It's at 150k miles and had 5 owners, current one's had it since '21. It does have a check engine light, but the power steering is leaking and might be the cause. The guy is asking $2900
Anything in particular I should look for to make sure it's good? 5 owners is sketchy but if it's clean I'll take it
>>
>>25913985
Should I just buy the ATK prb1 k20a2 head from JEGS? An OEM one from acura is like 6 grand. My bottom end block is completely fine, internals are fine, but I have a hard time justifying 6 grand from acura when its 700 from jegs.
>>
>>25914482
Go aftermarket jegs
>>
>>25914396
Don't bother, what if the power steering line is around the fire wall like the k24 accords? It's just a pain the ass and if it was easy it would've been fixed already. Don't buy some one else headaches.

Power steering leak wouldn't cause a CEL (that could be expensive in itself), but the power steering leak could be a steering pump leak, which is fairly cheap at under $300 aftermarket, but the power steering rack is very expensive because of the labor, they need to drop the subframe to put it in, and doing an OEM part cost me $1500, these cars are very reliable and good, but it can get out of hand very quickly with the maintenance, but your rewards, will be great when it is fixed because the car is fantastic

>>25915093
I would only bother if the price is cheap, knock them the hell down in price for that CEL and point out those leaks, tell them it's very expensive, or walk away.

Hey guys, I've got a 94 prelude si, things got good power and handles great, but everytime I push the car even a bit, the coolant boils. Any ideas why or should I add an oil cooler to help?

Isnt going to be available til november. Im gonna have to go with finding a used head
>>
>>25915118
>used head
Absolutely nothing wrong with that if it's not warped, Honda heads typically never go to shit, the bottom of the motor would get destroyed before the top end would.
>>
>>25915123
I mean my top half is warped beyond salvage but my bottom end is good, so idk man. All i know is i need my car going asap, so used it is
>>
>>25915137
Unless the head is overheated I will typically never get ruined, by oil starvation or something, the bottom will go kniggity knock.
>>
>>25915160
Gotchs, that makes sense. Have a pic of potential head. Has had some polishing done, but no milling and is within spec.
>>
>>25915192
That thing looks fine, the K blocks only get that little wear spot on the lobes but it lasts damn near forever.
>>
>>25915235
Its right around 1k, but im hoping itll get the job done. Sad my head isnt saveable, and theres nothing in my area. This is a few states away and im gonna pay to have it shipped. I'm hoping i wont have t9 wait more than 1 more week.

Any suggestions for springs or coilovers btw? This shit was on super low eibachs, prolly 3" low. Im looking for like 1 to 1.5",.

2006-2008 honda civics (euro version) cost around 2000 euro more then other cars of that genreation, similar mileage and engine power. What the hell?
People here are buying messed up civics from Switzerland, buying them for peanuts, making them road worthy and then selling them for 4500 euro plus. ones in good condition are easily 6000+. for 15 year old cars. Ridiculous.

I feel you, god forbid my CM get smashed up, I would have to drive with a shit looking car, because all the CM's are totaled out with the lack of maintenance that is gonna have to be done, an old Honda that is well is in good shape, with a nice ride, and isn't leaking, is an expensive fucking car.

I know the leak happened days ago.

What do you guys think? How much will it have in common with the base Integra or 2023 Civic Type R?

is it ok to buy a modified honda as a first car
im just desperate for something moderately fun to drive, 90s, and manual transmission. But every honda in my region is modified. usually badly. I found two that seem owned by adults though (stock steering wheel and wheels, maintained tires and exterior)
>6th gen civic with B20z2 block and b20b head with a 5 speed gsr transmission with truhart coils. owner is a frequent civic modder
>6th gen civic converted to manual with a ZC engine( i think its sohc non vtec) owner got it 2 weeks ago, it was slammed but has since been repainted and raised by the new owner
>>
>>25920107
I would not recommend buying someone's toy or project that they have clutch dropped and not taken care of, get a manual non VTEC Honda Civic or Accord that is in stock condition, you'll be much happier and won't have as many problems, these cars already need enough work as it is when you buy them used.
>>
>>25920137
I can't find stock cars for 100 miles
>>
>>25920155
Wtf how bad is your city Anon? I'm in mexican ass California and can find old Accords and Civics in stock condition, they're leaking and need some work, but they're stock.
>>
>>25920160
Problematic ones that are reportedly stock like you listed are usually in the $6000+ and have nearly 200k miles and bad exteriors. Which I can afford but I'm just not going to pay that much money for such a beat civic
There are people here who modify their cars well and reliably, I'd buy cars from them. Maybe I can come across a good modifier like that?
>>
>>25920165
>Problematic ones that are reportedly stock like you listed are usually in the $6000+ and have nearly 200k miles and bad exteriors
>tfw shit exterior car with 150K worth over 6 grand
I feel you Anon, but that's what they go for in the clown market, but a modified car is gonna be harder to live with and riding like shit than a stock one, at least a leaky ass Accord will have a nice feel to it, and be reliable enough where you can go to work and fix it as you go, and it's fun if you have a manual.

I'm just not gonna do it man. Its too crazy. I'm not even sure I like cars or driving manual as I've never done it before.
>>
>>25920173
so if i bought a car and modified it you wouldn't buy it under any circumstances?
>>
>>25920207
It depends on the owner whom we the buyer don't know, I don't know how your keep the car up or drive, but when I see a car on coilovers and aftermarket wheels, that tells me the owner like to drive fast, they likely drove the car very hard, it says a lot.

Completely understandable at this point in time.

What about a 7th gen Civic with 120k miles that is stock except for a jmc stereo and pioneer speakers. And also had its motor swapped for one with lower miles. And also has 'JDM HFP package' bodykit for $3500

Its the best I've found so far.

Damn that's a really nice fuckin car, see that's fine, it's the fully riced cars you don't want, my Accord has a custom stereo setup, itself.

>>25920266
>Also its a 7th gen Civic AKA anti fun
That is true, but if it's stock suspension, the car is at least gonna ride nice, my 7th gen Accord is peak anti fun, but at least it absorbs the bumps, a skateboard hard suspension with low pro tires gets old.

>>25920245
returning to cables would be prohibitively complicated enough let along fitting an entire steering column in a car that never bothered making space for one.

That would be cool, but turburchurgurs are just too good. Higher power without wrecking fuel eco. I wonder how much research (if any) went into making the K20C in the Type R rev higher than it needs to, just for fun/posterity's sake. Same goes for the other turbos like Accord or Type S.

From an objective performance perspective, Turbos are basically an infinite power glitch. Every automaker is going to start putting them in every ICE engine from now on because they are easy.

I'm not sure. 8th gen's all had variable valve timing. I doubt they had variable valve lift. If they do it'll be in that last 20% of revs and you'll hear it when it kicks in. There are a ton of L13A7 variants.

fuck this is so real

>>25923450
not swapping, no real point in it. if you have a fit with the L15 you're good, just mod that. if you don't have a fit with the L15, just buy a fit with it. Engine swapping is a massive pain in the ass, its not worth your time with a fit unless youre willing to spend insane cash to build it all out, and if that's the case just buy another fit with the only decent engine they come with
>>
>>25923532
my time is literally worth nothing
>>
>>25923546
then its not worth it. It doesn't matter how compatible the cars are. Even if you had an older fit with the old engine, other ones like the K20's and K24's won't swap in without a serious redesign.

I'm looking at an add for a 8th gen honda civic, hatch version, date of production 2007. Seller is asking for 6k euros, and odometer is at 137k km/ ~85k miles. The picture od the service booklet shows it has been serviced at 80.000km back in 2011, and the next pic in the add shows just a service at 130.000km done last year. That's almost 100% percent an odometer rollback. How much should I ask for the price to be dropped after I take it to a mechanic and he co firms thst its not the real mileage?

>>25927637
Honestly, not all that much. €6k is already pretty apt if you double the mileage. If you're feeling especially (((needy))), 1,500 tops. Although I seriously doubt you'll be in a legal position to negotiate the price, you know, after the sale.

You're a retard. The new nsx sucks ass. no laptime will ever make it good. its not the performance people have a problem with. Honda took a drivers cars and turned it into a soulless super car. it might as well automatically drive itself. most car journalists are braindead retards so their praise means nothing. Its about what you FEEL when you drive a car. and the nsx has nothing
>>
>>25930022
>soulless super car
I highly doubt you would be saying that if you drove one, even our resident nigha Del, who is B series all day, got a 2018 GT-R, and said that was the best performance car he's had, a pigfat automatic GT car was the best he ever had.

it doesnt really matter, ill take an s2000 any day. the nsx has a serious driver feedback problem. and it being an automatic is lol

i would not buy a del sol man. its really not worth it. get over you
'i just want a fucking 90s civic' thing and sit down and realize what you're buying here. the del sol is such a hunk of junk lazy poorly made car from honda. justbecause itshonda doesnt make it good. this is a miserable car and you're gonna hate it. it cant do anything. what are you even buying a car for?
>practicality
>fun
>speed
>reliability

I can assure you the del sol does not meet any of these except maybe the last one by virtue of being a civic, but all del sol specific attributes are terrible. the roof will leak. the chassis will flex. you will waste your money on a sub par piece of shit if you put any money into it. its an automatic so it doesnt even have the good honda shifting.

Sit down with yourself: What in the absolute fuck are you buying? Is it just because it says Honda? Is that all you care about?
>>
>>25930093
Look for leaks, condition of trans, brake, oil fluids, ask when the timing belt and water pump was last done so you know, that's like a 90,000 mile maintenance item, and about as big of a job as it gets on a D series that isn't a head gasket
>>
>>25930086
$4900 For an automatic del sol is not worth it at all. A manual seventh gen Civic/Accord would be preferable. A fit is preferable. an RSX is preferable. a TSX is preferable. a CL is preferable. Sentra SE-R...90s Maxima...
>>
>>25930106
I completely agree with the whole 7th gen Accord as a relatively modern daily, I wouldn't even want an automatic del sol myself, but they're rare specimens at this point being kind of a classic car, there will probably come a time where the K series cars are considered absurdly expensive compared to a good used "older" L15B powered car, it's just how it goes with Hondas as they age.
>>
>>25930040
idk if I said that or not, but gtr is pretty balanced as far as performance, usability, value, etc.

>>25930064
originally my big letdown with the new NSX was that it sounds pretty bad
But then I remembered that the 1g nsx also sounds pretty bad

I did some soul searching and I think what it comes down to is that honda had this image of this underdog. A manufacturer that had basically no reason to make super light double wishbone cars with screaming dohc vtec engines
They were an economy car company.
That's what elevated the NSX and the S2000 (and a lot of the early fwd stuff) It was something pretty good from an economy car maker. You felt like you were let in on a secret

How the fuck are you going to recapture that essence when you make a car that costs 170k? People are now expecting something great, since you are charging for it and now have a reputation. But the new NSX doesn't do any one thing particularly well. It's pretty good performance wise, okay styling, its a hybrid which is cool if you're into that

But it's not representative of Honda anymore.

At least with something like the GTR you get something brilliant from a completely shit company
Or McLaren has really fast cars with doors that go up
Ferrari has the brand and the pre turbo cars have the sound
Lamborghini has the sound and brand with wild styling
aston martin has the brand
lotus is lightweight fighter jet
etc.

You know who has been doing big dick moves and has stolen the crown as far as underdog company making good shit?
Toyota

im not that anon but, you really cant see why old school car drivers dont like nucars with traction control flappy paddles and autoblip where you just mash the gas and the computer figures out how much power you can get down like a forza video game?
https://streamable.com/wp5wqg

no traction control no nothing just a throttle cable, abs, and vtec. exactly as a honda should be. my mediocre lap times are exactly the product of me driving the car to the limit of traction and holding it there, not the computer or the engineers. and if you can stay on throttle and not overcook it, you can run down objectively better cars because it's good

>>
>>25932519
maybe I'm biased but I think the GTR is pretty fun
I've had it sideways plenty of times and have had it over 160+

Due to how the AWD works of being essentially always RWD until you need front traction, you pretty much need the computer to help with the decision making on torque split etc
That being said, it doesn't get in the way. When you put it in manual mode and "R", it drives like a car with a sequential gearbox
Brakes are heavy, steering is heavy and gives good feedback, you can turn off nannies EZ

Does it drive like my CRX? No
But driving the CRX feels like you are going to die the entire time

I have a base model '09 Civic and want to upgrade the wheels. Where is the best place to find honda wheels of the same generation to upgrade?
>>
>>25932795
I wouldn't even get the OEM wheels for 8th gen Civics because they pretty much stink, look for any aftermarket wheel that is affordable and is 17 inches in diameter, with an 7.5 inch, to 8.0 inch diameter to it, and you'll want to run 225/45/17 tires on there, so that the diameter aligns with what a base model Civic with something like 195/65/15 inch wheels would have, which means your odometer and speedometer won't be thrown off by having too large wheels on it and the Civic will go down the road correctly, your tire selection get way better as well when your profile isn't stupid large like on a stock base model Civic.

It was supposed to run like 150,000 Km but I fucking ruined it

/hg/ i overfilled my 03 accord with oil. I'm used to filling it with 4.4 quarts when the check oil light comes up because it likes to burn it all after a month. Was running fine for the first 20 minutes until it kind of struggled to accelerate and blew out a bunch of smoke behind me for a bit. Didnt seem to do it again the past 10 minutes once getting home. Thoughts?

>>25935320
>4.4 quarts when the check oil light comes up because it likes to burn it all after a month
I think you simply massive a massive oil burner, Anon. A CM Accord with a nice big extended life filter, such as the OEM 15400-PLM-AO2, can have an entire 5 quart jug of 5W-20 poured in there and just have the oil sitting at the FULL line, it's really hard to overfill a CM.

Should I ride it out then? I need to get gas later so I was figuring I could test it as I drive to the gas station and maybe do highway to see how it affects sspeed/acceleration

>>25935368
I'd ride it out while checking your oil every 500 miles or so, at the very least every time you go to the gas station, there are nighas I know IRL with Preludes that eat a quart of oil per tank of gas, and that's just how the car is.

alright just an update. After some cruising in the backroads and going to work it seems to have farted out enough oil clouds to turn off the check engine light.

The CEL is probably intermittently on because the car is upset about something wrong, either a bad sensor, EVAP problem, idle speed issue etc, it'll even blink if the car has misfires happening, but if your red oil light isn't on, then you're doing good. K24 Hondas are actually very dumb about knowing what's going on with the oil, all it has is the dipstick that you check the level with, and a little oil pressure switch screwed onto the back of the motor right above the oil filter that just senses if there's oil pressure or not, it doesn't even know how much pressure there is, it's just an on or off switch to turn the red oil light on or off, low oil cannot cause a check engine light.

Try getting the cheapest Innova OBD2 scanner for your CM Accord, I got the Innova 3011 for $45 at Autozone, and this thing is super simple and it will give you a code to at least go to a mechanic with, or you can at least know what parts have gone bad and where you need to go from there.

Me too, It costs a good bit of money to keep these cars in perfect condition riding down the road, but if you treat it right and fix whatever comes up or is wearing out, it stays that same new car it was back then, even if the cosmetics are shot, mine still doesn't burn a drop of oil at 150,000 miles, and I just had it smog tested today, it just continues to work in spite of all the abuse.

check/replace t-stat, check for corrosion inside the cooling system, make sure your head gasket isn't leaking and only showing itself when the car is pushed to the limit.

>>25920107
if you know that whoever did the mods did it right and the car doesn't have issues then go for it, but inspect it carefully. you don't want to buy a car from a methhead named Mike that hacked the wiring together with wirenuts and mismatched wire colours. you'll be staring at a multimeter for hours.
the b20 block is great, the b20z heads had valve guide migration issues in some years, but the b20b head is okay, but check compression across every cylinder with a gauge. those b20's have weak bottom end's and weren't made to sit at high RPM's for a long time. that being said, they pack a ton of low end torque. paired with a tall-gear transmission would be a good fuel efficient car that you can have fun in, or a torque monster with a short geared transmission. beware of code 1/43 if it's obd0 and the unheated o2 sensor was relocated further from the exhaust manifold.

always check dipstick when adding oil. add 1qt and then recheck. if you burnt all 4 quarts of oil and you're adding 4 quarts all at once you've got worse problems to worry about. i don't think the 03 accords had a check oil level indicator, just the red oil pressure light which means you're empty or the pressure switch is bad.

Are 7th gen accord automatic transmissions any good? They are all automatic where I live.

I have the BCLA 5 speed on the 4 cylinder from 2004 still working and banging gears with no issues at 150,000 miles, can't speak for the V6 but it's a sick transmission, just keep that fluid changed, I like to do a drain and fill religiously every year, or 30,000 miles, whichever comes first. A drain and fill ran me $127 at the dealership because inflation is cringe, but I'll pay $127 a year to have this transmission not have issues.

I can't even find a rolling fucking shell of a Integra. Fuck this shit.

am i allowed to post if i have a normal unmodified civic? Is there a way to make it faster without voiding insurance
>>

Civics are always welcome.
Your insurance won't know if your car is modded unless you wreck it. Unless they inspect it?

all i want is a manual fun car and i cant even have that. even if i were willing to spend $10000 on a 90s civic i still cant find one that is unmodified and running well.

Is it possible to get a civic re-upholstered as in just rip the fabric on the seats off but keep the original foam? Every place I've gone to has said they only do luxury and expect me to pay several thousand
>>
>>25940673
Yeah, get an engine swap. It cost me $2k to do but it was worth it
>>
>>25943780
foam stays if the integrity is still ok, but the problem is that reupholstering takes just about as long on a civic as it does on a rolls royce

I traded in my 22 si for the 23 integra with the stick shift yesterday. they paid me an absurd amount for my civic to the point where it was a no brainer. 10k over msrp, so it covered the msrp of the nutegra. NuTegra got a lot of hate but when I finally saw it in real life I actually really liked it, and it's definitely an upscale version of the 22 si which I absolutely loved.

I came to terms with not being able to afford the new type R after the dealers confirmed they'd be charging at least 10k markup on them so I settled with the integra.
