Welp I'm getting tired of updating 2 threads so I'll be posting all my projects and updates in here from now on.

First on the block is the rebuild of the Honda. Meeting my friend tonight and we are going to decide what route we take. I'll update this first post with specs on both cars I own so far.

Also what do you guys think of Zac's Autosports? I would be using that name for a YouTube channel and possibly a side business in the future.

1993 Honda Civic Si

Sounds great! If you're still on the fence about using the word "rally"... you could always just switch it to something like Zac Rallysports LLC or something ~ cheers & good luck on the business man! turned.gif

Since I do a lot of polishing I figured I should come up with a name that would include everything automotive.

So we decided last night that we will be, well I will be rebuilding the d16z6 that came with the civic. My friend is too busy getting his house ready for their baby they are expecting in February.

I'll be taking the motor to work and cleaning it up to see what I'm working with and what I'll need. Most likely just a oem rebuild with a different cam. Comp makes a cam that will work with stock components. Only a 8hp increase but it's supposed to help low end and make the whole Rev range usable.

I think Autosports fits better as well.

I'm thinking of rebranding my racing page on the bookfaces myself, as it's hardly ever about just the car anymore and I'd like to be able to include other content without it feeling too off-topic, such as when I drive others' cars. Something like Spaz Racing or similar is likely going to result, or maybe just throw caution to the wind and make it a bit more "professional" as Charles Miller Racing.

I feel the same way. I have so many opportunities to drive different cars and also do many types of automotive related work that I want to be able to document and share it all in one place.

My latest automotive outing.

My roommate owns a 1973 VW Thing that she and a shop restored over 7 years. I was lucky to be invited to a car show for weird cars and asked if she wanted to bring her car there. The owner also has a private race track and was doing a bracket racing event. We were shooting for 1'16

They look the same as pretty much any generic winter tire, so as long as the rubber is soft enough you'll be fine. I'm running cheap ass ones on both cars (well, storing the Evo on them now that I no longer ice race it), and they've been perfectly fine.

Starter was beginning to fail so I changed it out and also one of the bolts had backed its way out, luckily it didn't damage all of the threads and just replaced it with a new one, was going to replace the PCV but ran out of daylight and heat.

Had a little time to work on the civic, didnt take too many pictures but we got the transmission off the original motor and found that the clutch was exploded and figured thats why it wasn't going into gear. Just going to put the 280,000km motor back together with new seals and head bolts and hope it last longer than 3 events derp.gif

Both myself and my friend were fighting a cold but we put in a couple hours to start tearing down the engine.

I was working on the head, I've never done valve springs so I'll need to find a DIY because I want to clean up the whole head and change the valve stem seals

Heads are actually square peg, square hole. Easier than I expected when I built the head on my last Evo. Just have to have the right tools.

Yes going to need to invest in some proper tools to remove the springs and valves. Still have to read up on how to clean everything safely as well.

The lightness of this engine is comical. I could pick up and move it around myself with no issues.

Got a little bit more work done. Started prepping the car to remove the blown engine. Still waiting on my valve spring removal tool.

Plugged in my go pro yesterday and forgot in had taken some video when I was spraying some base coat on the civic parts

What's up everyone? Haven't been posting lately because I started a new job and have been busy with all 4 vehicles myself and my gf own. I've been posting videos on my YouTube channel once a week about the work I do on them so if you want to keep track please subscribe to it. Thanks!

I'll have to keep manually checking your channel, they aren't pushing to my YT home... YT's algorithms are dumb.

Oh it doesn't show up when you check your subscriptions? I know when you upload a video I see it when I check mine.
