    well, she has a brand new rebuilt heart and i tell you what it runs amazing!!!!!

    the engine consist of a d15b6 bottom end with pm3 pistons, a 3 layer mls headgasket and a stock y8 head, y8 intake, and egay header. i just took my adjustable cam gear off the d16a6 i took out and sometime between work, and rebuilding the d16a6 for my recently acquired 89 civic rt4wd auto and getting it swapped in and running ill have it installed.

    need to address the body work to both honda's, and i also need to fix my suspension bushing that is blown out. all in due time. just a lot to do with raising my daughter, working, spending time with the wife, and trying to keep the cars on the road.

    i will eventually get to some updated pics and whatnot for you fellas. just kinda forgot about the good ole onecamonly family.

    well for starters this is the engine i installed.
    [​IMG]

    i then installed this light bar from the wagon onto my car as the wife didnt like it at all on the wagon.
    [​IMG]
    it has 3k hid outer driving lights and 100w 5 inch inners. think i will be converting the 5 inch lights over to 6k hids as well.
    [​IMG]
    then traded the factory headlamps for these projector style ones with 6k hids.

    i also installed this into the interior, nice addition i would say.
    [​IMG]
    and this,
    [​IMG]
    love it^^^^

    i then started test fitting some items here and there,
    [​IMG]
    [​IMG]

    then i picked up some new audio equipment, some i have pictures of others i do not.
    Kenwood 6.5 coaxial for the doors, Alpine CDE-133bt(god i love this radio), alpine mini power pack given to me by a friend,
    Vibe blackdeath 6x9's

    ^^^these will become my new subwoofers to replace my 10" kicker L7
    also picked up these for use later in the wagon,
    [​IMG]

    also picked up these for the wagon, i drove on them for a week though,
    [​IMG]

    and lastly, ive decided on a paint color no matter how bad others think about it.

    sublime green pearl


    hows this for a quick update. a lot more has happened to, had to replace the fuel pump, battery(now has optima yellow top), main relay, left front wheel bearing(which is now dead again do to a blown out control arm bushing i discovered in the past 2 weeks), rear brakes are all new because of a wheel cylinder blowing out on me so i replaced everything on both sides, replaced the front shocks, and have a bunch of parts im picking up within the next month or so from a friend parting out a 94 sedan so ill have my side skirts, headliner, two new control arms for the front, a stock suspension i will use in winter, and a bunch of random interior pieces. so yeah, been real busy as you see. lol

    I actually think I'll like the paint color.

    I have one of those clusters to install into my CRX. Wiring is going to be interesting. heh

    well beave your the second person to say they like it, kinda brings a smile to my face:)

    as for the wiring for the cluster, as long as you have the mapping right(IE the correct diagrams to use its really a straight forward job. Most of the wire colors are identical from cluster to cluster with the exception of a few wires here and there. This was one of the first things i did when i got the car lol.

    im hoping that i can fix up the wifes buick a little now that shes not driving it, flip it and find a suv for her. that way i can start driving the wagon as my daily and build this car up like i want.

    one thing for sure is im truly amazed at how well this engine is running. first honda engine i have fully built from the ground up. Almost every part is reconditioned or new so it should last for a long time as long as i take care of it.
