This is my 92' Vx. It's been through several stages of devolpment. Basically a never ending project car if you will. I bought the car in 2003 as a co... Show morempletely stock 1.5L gas-sipping VX. Everything that has ever been done or installed has been done by myself and friends.
On Christmas Eve 2004, my cousin and I did a single day engine swap start-to-finish in one day. We swapped in a D16z6 from his 92' Si cuz he had just put a B16 in his. So we said what the hell, lets put the D16 in the VX.
The D16 was awesome while i had it in the car. It turned out to be pretty damn quick for a basically stock motor turning a 15.1@90mph. But awhile ago the D16 met its demise with a horrible knock, and eventually locking up hard-core on my way home from work. So thats when i decided it was time for what i had been thinking about for a long time...DOHC VTEC.
So I sourced the low mileage JDM B18C motor and tranny, ordered a bunch of parts, spent a weekend doing the swap. The power band of the B18c is super thick compared to the torquless D16. Over all driveability was much improved with the car. I don't have to beat the piss out of this motor if i want to get to speed quickly.
Alright, heres the list of things i did along with the swap its self...DC Sports 4-1 header, Password:JDM carbon fiber power chamber intake, Exedy organic single-plate clutch kit, Phantom Grip LSD, New axles, NGK wires, Platnium 2 plugs, Walbro 255 pump, Avid Racing shift linkage, new timing belt, water pump, and lashed the valves. I also gutted out the air conditioning. Since i was doing a swap and had the motor out of the car, i figured it was a good idea to start fresh with somethings.
As for suspension i use Omni Power Street full coilovers and camber kit. I just received and yet to install Skunk2 pro-series intake manifold, outlaw engineering thermoblok spacers, energy suspension motor mount inserts, and i'm chipping my old p28 to run chrome using a base map from phearable.net. next up is a rear disc conversion for sure. Sorry my picks need to be updated aswell, i now have a cf duckbill spoiler that looks sick. i'll do that sometime soon!
