I need a little help with buying my Honda

Post by Samdo_m »

I'm going to buy my first Honda in the coming month and really need to know from people who have experience with the EF what I should expect. I help my friend with his S14 and I used to have my own project car a VW Polo 6n2 before I sold it and wanted to join the jap life! My friends trying to convince me to buy an S-body but I really like the culture that comes with the Civic. (maybe in the future I will join him with an S-body.)

Back to the subject what should I be expecting? I live in Scotland so rust may be a bigger issue but my plan is to have this as a project. I will put a B16 in it eventually but before all of that what are everyone's thoughts about things that urgently need done. I've read about brake conversions and the B series conversion anything else I should research?

You named the number 1 killer. Rust. If you plan on going B, I would search for an EE9 or an EE8 so that you'll have that to start with. Other than the obvious(RUST!) check the normal used car trouble spots.
