Cougar289's D15B2 build thread! 56k DEATH!

Postby cougar289 » Fri May 01, 2009 4:45 am

So I've kept this project under wraps for awhile, so tonight I've decided to make a thread to show off my D15 Beast.

very nice!

I'm a little confused though ???
does the d16z6 intake manifold bolt onto the d15 head?

Sure does, it's the best flowing out of the sohc D manifolds imo. Much better than the b7/a6 manifold.

Throttle body is bigger on the z6, runners are also bigger and shorter. The b7 manifold is the same as the a6 manifold, it just doesn't say pgm-fi.

that's pretty cool! are there size/fitting differences between OBDI and non OBD injectors?

Nope, the OBD-0 injectors go right into the z6 manifold with the z6 fuel rail too. I'm currently running an OBD-0 setup, the only thing you need to do is plug the map sensor in and run a hose to the vacuum port for the purge solenoid. On a 4g the map sensor is on the firewall, on a z6 manifold it is on the top of the throttle body. The plug is exactly the same and no mods are required.

Looks good, remember to take it to a dyno when you have it together and you've driven it in. ;)

Nice, original and budget friendly build. For the obx exhaust, did you get it on ebay? sounds too loud?

Yeah got the exhaust off ebay and it isn't really that loud, even with no cat. It really only gets loud over 5k, but from idle to about 4k its really mellow sounding. I replaced the cat with a resonator, and as you can see in the pics there's also another resonator in the mid pipe. It's one of the better sounded exhausts I've heard on a civic.

[img width=589 height=480]http://photos-f.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc1/hs021.snc1/3054_65061037098_755702098_1758317_366199_n.jpg[/img]

There's a pic of the inside of the test pipe, not just a hollow tube.

Btw my current setup on the D15B7 is cai, z6 manifold, header, catback, cam gear, and pg7 ecu. Stock head, compression, and cam. It will outrun 92 - 96 integra gsr's, and nearly run with b16 swapped crx's. Both with i/h/e. Once I get my balanced D15B2 and si transmission swapped in, I expect it to outrun b16 swapped civics/crx's without much difficulty.

Upcoming mods: Balanced crank, rods, and pistons, Delta cams .400in lift 260 dur, block decked .010in compression 11:1, and .5mm overbore.
