Traded my paint guns for this today. Needs a clutch but my friend said I could use his shop to do it.

Should be a great daily beater.

What's the mileage on that engine? What was it used for before you had it?

Heater works fine and thats all I really care about. Ill remove the valve cover to inspect the timing belt when I get wrenching on it hopefully this weekend.

B18 + ITBs, stat!

EG6s have too much potential to be wasted on daily driving. Strip it out and get some stiff coilovers and an LSD.

Strip, cut, weld. (And seam weld the chassis while you're at it).

Its gotten to the point where clean EG6s are hard to find in Japan.

Nice find! I rarely see these guys on the road around, but then again it might be the area that I live in. Are you planning on doing anything huge to it sometime down the line?

I see them all the time, but they're all ruined. By kids.

EK9s around here are pretty clean, though.

If I win the lottery then yes, paint it yellow and swap in a H22.

But for now its going to stay as stock and reliable as possible, it means I can spend more time on the wagon and not worry about how I am going to get to work.

All you need is a couple hundred bucks in tools and a bunch of time.

ill need heated garage space, welder, new sheet metal and the know how to build new quarters and rockers.

I have tools but no space or disposable income for such a project.

So something might happen to this car. Landlord is leaving on vacation for 8 months and is trying to sell her car so I could potentialy have the garage.. If that happens ill be putting some work into this thing. Thinking fixing the rust, pulling the d16 to replace all seals/gaskets. Vinyl wrap yellow like the Spoon EG6?

But then you'll also want to swap out the front axles too.

I've always wanted a Honda project car... an EG6/EK9 with a B16/B18 swap.

I would suggest painting it for real. And an H22 would be overkill... an 1.8 would be enough if you get the weight down.

I've done too much painting over the past couple years, want to get some vinyl wrapping experience under my belt.

H22's can be had for much cheaper then b18 swaps here in Canada.

Still working out the details for now.

Decided that I want to buy a sled this year instead, now I need to decide if I sell this outright or replace the clutch first so its driveable.

Assuming you use a stock clutch (maybe just a plate and bearing) and can do it yourself, you're probably better off doing it. Being drivable makes a difference between a $500 car and a $1000 car.

Back from the dead.

Friend of mine expressed interest in building a track beater. Showed him this and he offered his garage to work on it.

Thanks.

There is some pretty bad quarter rust on it. Planning to buy some ebay repair panels and bond them on. Going to see if I can do everything without welding to give hope to everyone on a tight budget.
