About my car

This is my 4th CRX and by far this one has had the most time and love spent on it. It has become a Father / Daughter project. My daughter loves "helping" me work on "our" car. I have done everything to this car except paint the chassis (I did paint the core support, engine bay and front and rear bumpers) and weld up the cage. I put a core support in and replaced every wiring harness. It is not a hard parked show piece. She is a budget built play toy, meant for autocross. She is far from complete but it is a drive able / race able project at this point.

The engine is nothing fancy but it gets the job done because the chassis is so light. B18A bored 1mm, p30 style pistons, arp rod bolts and some machine work to the oil pump has the bottom end ready for a LSV setup. The cylinder head has been port matched and has supertech valve springs and retainers, b20z cams. Skunk2 intake manifold and plm 4-1 header help it breathe.

It has not been on a dyno but I estimate it somewhere between 145-155hp at the wheels. With the short geared b16 transmission it has ran a 9.02 @ 76mph (before any ecu tuning and the intake upgrade) at the local 1/8th mile. Not "fast" but quick for a NA 4 banger in my opinion. I hope to click off a low 8 with the help of a 100 shot from the ZEX kit I am installing very soon.
