new to site 2nd 4th gen civic

Post by Spliph_Dubius »

Had a 91 hatch base model with 4 speed standard trans. thing was slow but I still loved it. Traded the civic for some work I needed on another vehicle. Never should have gotten rid of that car and have been looking for a ed2 sedan for 6+ years. Just got one on 2/5/16. A 1991 Civic LX stock except for an exhaust tip and 18" rims.
Planning on putting a SOHC from a 5th or 6th gen civic into it (non-vtec. If I happen on a vtec great but not important), Civic HX rims and light suspension upgrades and be done with it.
Not wanting a fast car just something fun to drive and good on gas that looks nice and subtle.

Thanks. The car has been sitting for 2 years. Previous owner said it just stopped running. Battery replaced. I rotated the crank for a bit to circulate some oil and did a compression test. 1-2 cyl 30/60 compression, 3-4 170/180 compression. So I'm certain its the head gasket. Gonna start tearing it down today. It has a list needs to be completed. Gonna be fun.
