Jump the pins on the IACV plug to get rid of the CEL. It will idle like shit when it's cold, but run just fine when it's warmed up. I intend to hook it back up here soon, but just haven't been arsed enough to do it yet.

nice vid, almost sounds like vtec and pulls hard from mid to high ;D

and the exhaust doesn't seem to be loud, it's a no name brand?

It's that cheap OBX ebay brand or whatever. Sounds perfectly quiet during normal driving, doesn't resonate in the interior on interstate driving. I really like it.

if that mirror finish last long then it's great. I would go only with the muffler and twin tips, the rest is for the muffler shop to make ;D.

cougar289 wrote:Well in that case if you're looking to get into the low 15's, then a d15b7 is perfect. Figure on spending about $600 to hit 15 flat. Z6 intake, ebay cai, header, catback, pg7 ecu, si transmission, si cam, adjustable cam gear, and polyurethane motor mount inserts if yours are rotten. Basically the same setup as my current D15B7, except I still have a DX 5spd. Some weight reduction, get rid of the A/C if you don't need it or if it doesn't work. Backseat, spare tire, jack, will take off about 55lbs. Get ignition timing and cam timing setup right, and you will have a screaming D15. You could probably make $200 back out of selling the old transmission, intake manifold, and ecu.

You'll be able to burn the tires off the rims with that setup. Easily take turbo probes, pontiac gtp's, slowbalts, etc etc...It would top out around 135 - 140mph depending on which trans you use.

This was the whole point to my D15B7 build. There are a ton of them on the road, a lot of high school kids have them and are wanting swaps and all that when really they could just spend less than a thousand on their D15, have a good motor to beat the hell out of, and learn a lot about engines in the process.


Thanks for the info. I will be looking into this once I get all the small stuff fixed. If I can do that with my D15 I will be very happy. The only thing I can't do is strip the interior because I have a kid so I gotta keep the back seat.

Normally I average about 30mpg. It does run slightly rich, but it isn't bad with all the mods.

Well the engine is coming along nicely, should be done by August.

The block after a .020in bore and .010in deck. Got some accessories put on. All gaskets, O-Rings, seals...brand new. Everything down to the little O ring on the oil jet.

Nippon pm3 pistons and ACL Bearings

ARP Rod Bolts

That's it for now, Bisimoto valve springs and Delta 260 regrind are on their way.

Just cleaned with a pressure washer and some scrubbing. Not really a good idea to hot tank aluminum.
