After close to to 3 yrs. of re-purchasing a "new-used" + all the parts to re-build . . .
have got the CR-X on the road and here's graph showing tuning results. (eCtune, btw)
OBD0 to OBD1 . . .

Is the bisi header causing restrictions? I thought it was a superior design compared to the 4-2-1 hearder?

No restrictions - Bisi V2 header an egual length 4-1 header meant for top end speed & the 4-2-1 header packs more of the low & mid range punch.
Kinda like ordering cams too, I suppose - but the Bisi looks evil sitting in the engine bay (very near a turbo look).

Hmmm - stage 2 headwork, Exospeed SR909 cam + P29 pistons
No smog checks here - also the MSD6AL ignition for the '92-'95 Civic

Okay here are some photos finally - starting off with the front l/r front fender braces.
If you look closely enough, you can see that I had them welded to the body @ the hinge
plates and also above the tire there in the shots. Car very solid w/these in.
The top pic has been welded in, the bottom one is not - the blade portion there
and the hinges were welded up for like $75 to $80 or so. Braces were under $200 -
Image
Image

Getting to the back & underneath, a ST rear anti-swaybar hooked up w/the ASR subframe brace, in addition to the s.s. brake lines (all 4 corners, of course) -
Image

The Skunk2 lca's -
Image

Here's the body as it sits, put the F1 mirror and Ventshades on this weekend - both helpful.
Also use the wide-angle racing mirror over the stock one for better blind spot detection.
Yes, the hood pins will be relocated (the bigger ones) - no idea as to why he put them on the seam of the hood like he did. :/ The front bumper cover will be replaced w/a stock and 3 holes will be filled in - radio ant., rear wiper, rear window nozzle (on roof). Had an estimate of $1,200 for all body & paint. Doesn't mean I'll take that bid - hoping closer to $8/900.
Image

Another shot of the Ventshade on pass. side - sans OE mirror.
Image

A shot of the roof damage it had when car was bought - someone obviously
didn't fully latch the hood after changing oil, or whatever under there.
Image

Here is the tail section with some air tabs for a much lighter type of "wing effect"
yes, the red skull lights up when the brakes are hit. ;)
Image

- had 2 extra, so I stuck one off on either side for visual effect - if it does
actually work to stabilize @ high speed like they claim, so much the better.
Image

Here is what sold me on the car (despite the roof damage) it came
w/a rear crossbrace already in it.
Image


The LS rims you see up top were the ones that came with the car (and been sold)
the ones shown on the car below that were picked up around off of craigslist for cheap.

Yeah, Beav - it feels good to be behind the stick of one of these again, but it starts w/a very high idle and a big doubt that there's a vacuum leak. Read that it could be the FITV, and a few other niggly things causing it - like to pin that shiznit down before driving it all over the place.

I've been thinking about making front braces like that for . . . 8 years. They are becoming more popular. I bet that theycan help stiffen the front on our vehicles with stressed pinch weld.

Yeah, Beav - you'd love taking a right hand turn in this thing.
W/the bars front/middle/rear, it has very minimal body flex.
I actually accelerate on the off-ramps (sooo much fun) - solid.

Here the front crossmember - Explicit Speed Performance

The B pillar brace (also have the seat belt straps attached to it)

One for the moderator - what happened to my photobucket pics, they just
disappeared from my large post above. Did I go overboard with the # of them?

Not that I know of, we love pics. Only thing I know of relating to pics is that HUGE ones are kind of annoying when they distort the rest of the thread off the screen. But I don't remember yours being like that.
I think if we'd changed anything we would have let you know what and why.

rcautoworks.com - guy named Bob made these for me years ago, one of the
few items I gleaned from the 1st CRX when recovered (they didn't strip body panels)
He's somewhere in Chicago area

Man, that was a tight fit for my penis - :lol:

The "gorilla tape" shield is because of the hood scoop -

I am pretty certain he does not , however - you might forward him these pics & ask him to fab up a set for you. I was one of the lucky few to get a set of these off of him before he went big time (has a full time garage now).
Had the JimFab x-member too & them sunsabeeches took it w/my 1st love. :/ the ESP one works well too, tho. :)

Naw, I'll just make my own. I'm perfectly capable of it and would prefer it, as I have some tricks I want to try to make them much stiffer, and I see some easy ways to definitely improve the endplates.

Probably - yeah, that triangle piece could be extended out a bit more tent-like
(kinda hard to explain) onto that plate area for more coverage . . . or, just make
both pieces converge to an angle point out there. You can tell I'm not a welder
by my explanations (but my brother-in-law is a master welder, however) - he
made me a diamond plate battery box for my Odyssey 680.

Well, seasons change - after issues w/logging in & my '92 F150 finally giving up the ghost, I have the CRX in the body shop for past 3 months and getting everything done to it that needed done. Hope to have current pics up in here before too long - traded what was left of my truck for the bodywork since cash not available. He is making it look like a DX since it'll have no rear wiper or sunroof (or radio) - heart of an Si, however.
Good to be back - oh, driving the gf's Suzuki Forenza & tying the knot probly next year . . .

I will re-post the above pic in awhile -

Meanwhile, back @ the ranch - FIVE months to do the bodywork
on the '91 CRX Si - albeit, it does look much better now. Have to
post those pics next week when I get it back for good. Got the
custom aluminum hinges (310 tuner - w/gas tube struts) besides
having sunroof deleted.

Also had to replace radiator & put two electric fans in there while at it.
New rad. is really big in there, so should be NO overheating issues.
Having to replace the UKDM 150mph odometer gauge too, as the
previous one went kaput - those babies are not getting any cheaper.
