i swear i posted up pics somewhere on here but nope... i guess not. i dont have too much moolah to burn so i was basic and kept it simple... i love this car cause its almost as old as me, it smokes newer turbos and some V8's...plus its reliable!
not to mention im in the states so this is a true diamond in the rough... its ALL original and OEM, as far as the body, engine and interior. of course i kept close to to its roots, so there are many honda access, Spoon, Mugen and Cusco parts.

here's the SiR I'm building; it's pretty kool i guess, if you like these little cars.... took me a while to find one and even longer to save for one but thats all in the past now. I got it in pretty rough condition; no accessories or mods, besides a rusted and holey yokohama bay side sports exhaust that was beat the fu*k up, half an access window visor and some JDM garbage(newspaper, wrappers and coins) throughout the car... I took off the bumpers, doors and replaced a fender then removed the interior, to inspect everything and make sure it was clean and safe... it is an 18 year old car.

ENGINE... i bought it with the original B16a @ around 8x,xxx KM's along with the numbers-matching short gear ratio Y1 transmission. Of course, I gave it a basic tune-up and flushed everything, including the tranny after inspecting the bay thoroughly. the following is how the car currently sits; I also have a JDM ITR B18c block, ITR P73 intake manifold, ITR throttle body and a few other nic-nacs being prepped for install. as of now though:

*spoon sports pr3 ecu
*spoon sports vc-3e vtec controller
*spoon sports 2-ply metal head gasket
*spoon sports type-f rad. cap
*ctr pistons
*ctr in./ex. camshafts
*ctr dual valve springs
*ngk plugs
*ngk wires
*hks drop in filter
*cusco oil catch can
*mugen/jasma 4-1 extractor
*straight/test pipe
*tanabe super medallion N1 cat-back exhaust
*oem L.S.D.

SUSPENSION...

*tokico blue struts
*eibach sportline springs
*cusco upper front strut bar
*cusco upper rear strut bar
*cusco lower front tie bar
*cusco lower rear tie bar
*itr sway bar
*sprinthart cp 14x6

EXTRAS...

I have the mugen/jasma 4-1 extractor with the tanabe super medallion exhaust... i want to find the mugen exhaust tho... PAIN IN THE ASS to find here!!!

this is one of the few cars that honda actually sat down and thought about... thats probably why I saved up and imported this rather than dropping the money down on an s2k or something else... these things can sell for up to 10k over here, i got lucky with finding one in the first place and then at such a low dollar!


..thanks for the appreciation...most people laugh at me here in the states... but then, when they pull up at the next light and im sittin there waiting for another run, they almost look sad... ...gotta LOVE IT :)

As far as I can tell (from reading US websites) clean crx's are kept in very high regard.

the clutches on these are cable b series, pretty hard to find them nowadays... usually people do the cable2hydro conversion and use the newer tranny.

when i swap the b16a w/ b16b piston bottom end for the b18c block, I will also be using the b18c pistons. I just through in b16b pistons when I couldnt afford the ITR motor...

what I meant about "people laugh" is that a few of the cars I have ran on, didnt expect to get smoked. I havnt raced in a while though, Ive been trying to save for a repsol.

about the Honda access parts, i've gotten some from the guys I bought my car from (N1 Concepts) here in the bay and a few from Ebay, etc.. I willl try to get some pics up of all the parts later.

thanks for all the kind words.

oh yeah.. the guy that sold me the rims didnt mention that one was bent so I need to find one more before my next little photoshoot.
