Re: my civic eg hatch

right about time i show some work i have been doing on this car lately.

been working on my car like mad for the last few days trying to get the twin carb change happening, and heres how its gone. (sorry for picture quality, taken with a phone camera.)

first the original carb needs to go (finally)


taking almost all the bolt and screws i could see off just to help make the job easier.





needed to take out the coolant before taking off the last big pipe on the original manifold.

time for the new carbs :twisted:


after a few painful hours spent on that i did a test fit of the new carbs and manifold, needed to take off two bolts from the engine block and bam! everything fits fine.


now i need to do the wiring sensors, any help with that, so far im really confused lol
heres how far i got with that.

sensor clip and wires off the original carb:


New carbs wiring:


how do i connect?

also what do i do with these?

Re: my civic eg hatch

hello guys

been a while since i have done much with my civic.
passed my driving test a last week monday, and heres the progress so far.

after having lots of troubles with the dual carbs i desided to just give it to a mechanic and hope that he knew what he was doing, and he did :)
so heres the engine bay with a free strutbrace off a great friend of mine:




then i recieved a hugh package through the post, with my name on it, wonder what it could be.... :p



brought the full rear interior with the gathers speakers for my car :D (thanks D14+tmike)




so the fun began today with striping out the interior,

Old:




then striping began, and finding a lot of dirt was not pleasant :redface:





with the basics out, got going with the seats and side trim:





then i found a hell of a lot of dirt and spiderwebs everywhere, so got the hover and a few cleaning tools to help me out for a basic clean.






then after a little bit of cleaning the car started to look like this:






now got all the inside out and sticking in the gathers speakers, i enjoyed the weather way to much, so desided to do something to my front bumper that i saw somewhere on the net.

before:



after:



thats how far i got today, found a little bit of surface rust on the inside rear quater panel so going to sort that out tomorrow, also going to clean the car up a bit more tomorrow to see how clean i can be bothered to get it.

thanks for looking :)

thanks guys,

im thinking of putting the old interior back in for a few days for it to go for its MOT and pass (fingers crossed)
also got to change the front lower wishbone bush's and the CV joint. and then bleed the brakes.

thanks guys

yeah forgot to mention the car has passed its MOT :) waiting for next month to kick in to get the car road taxed.
waiting on the interior guy to send me some parts he forgot as without them i cant start working on it, so for now its stripped out, which doesnt look to bad :twisted:

yeah the dual carb swap is a nice thing to have, god damn does it sound good, i dont need an exhaust on the car now, but i cant help to wonder how it would sound with a deep sounding exhaust :p

i want to stick a bigger engine in later, but thats years later, and the normal 1.3 is a weak engine without the dual carbs, now it really does have a kick to the car, should be good fun on the road,

got a few more plans that might be taking place. so fingers crossed :cool:
