new guy

Post by squeek485 »

Hey everyone, my names Ryan. I've got at 90 civic STD. mods so far have been the DPFI to MPFI conversion, 5 speed swap, and an unknown catback exhaust. all done by the previous owner. my plans include a rebuild of the bottom end and swapping on a D16A6 head, redoing the wiring for the MPFI conversion, Skunk2 intake manifold and throttle body, and redoing the exhaust with a HKS sport catback. not really a whole lot with the motor. just enough for a fun, dependable daily and possibly an autocross event or two. anyways, thanks for letting me be a part of the community.. hoping to search and find out good information and tricks to make this car as fun as possible on a (seriously) low budget.

while I'm here and killing time at work... has anyone heard of a company called Graveyard Motorsports? they have the D16A6 head I'm looking for but I don't know much about the company itself... just curious if anyone has got anything from them before and if it was decent or not. thanks in advance.

Their prices look to be on the high side, it would be cheaper to find a head at a wrecker and have it rebuilt at a machine shop.

well the one I was looking at was $200 I think. around my neck of the woods, the head itself is kind of a hard thing to come by, and most machine shops around here would charge about $500 to rebuild the head..
