D16 Turbo Godspeed Kit, first cold start
This morning is the first time the car has been started with a tune. The
tune is very basic and will be improved once we install the wideband O2
sensor on Saturday.
Honda CRX Crash 1990 - 92
Firstly apologies, this was never going to be the best of end results. The
1990 clips are all taken from a VHS crash tape, hence the rubbish
soundtrack, I have tried to edit bits together, I repeated the Silverstone
shunt because the clip after is the same one from inboard the lead car.
Anyone who can give me details about the CRX almost taking the chequer at
Oulton park while wheels-up I would be appreciative, the only time I have
ever seen a CRX turning turtle.
The 1991 clips are much better and are in order, Nial McKenzie takes a
starring role in the celebrity car at Knockhill, with an impressive dive
into the loose tyres at the hairpin to finish of his impressive showing.
Sadly only one clip from 1992, but the small grid says it all.
Turbo D16 Dyno
100% stock head and y7 econo cam
Vitara pistons, rods, 93 octane and 15psi.

thanks for viewing!
D16 Y7 Turbo Civic 1996 non-Vtec test
This engine has been in the car running well for a year now. Today valve
timing was adjusted and then A/F to be adjusted. Note the A/F gets into
the 10's in high rpm. This was fixed shortly after this video was taken.
This is a D6 Y7 block and head with a Y8 intake. Stock head and camshaft.
Adjusting the valve timing and resetting the spark timing had little affect
on power. Note Boost gets to
25-26psi on the gauge but only reads 22psi in Crome. Not sure what that's
all about since Crome gets input from that very gauge.

This sleek Honda CRX is finished in the Polar White, one of three choices
when new. A deep, quality shine which looks stunning really gives the car
tremendous presence. All the protective trim is in exceptional condition
with no scuffs on the vulnerable corners. The rear wheel arches are rust
free but evidence of a smart repair can be seen. The windows still have
the correct Honda stickers along with the inner door shuts. The passenger
door has some minor car park dings and the fully operational sunroof very
minor undulations. Overall a beautiful, unmolested 80's coupe ready to be
A true sports machine interior with comprehensive instrumentation,
excellent all round visibility and a commanding driving position. The
sports seats offer a perfect balance of comfort and secure holding. No
wear to the bolsters and all the internal trim is damage free and factory
original other than the expensive period Momo steering wheel. Protective,
quality velour Honda CRX carpet mats remain in all four foot wells and
really complement a performance environment.
ENGINE & TRANSMISSION
Quiet, powerful and brilliant Honda engineering can be experienced with
this low mileage example which is now incredibly rare to find unmodified
and factory original. With 16 valve technology, DOHC design, light
aluminium cylinder block this engine really was advanced in its day and
still offers exciting fun for the keen driver. The 5 speed transmission is
light, precise and a true joy to use.
WHEELS, TYRES & BRAKES
5J X 14 sports alloy wheels all shod in matching Bridgestone Potenza
185/60VR14 tyres which have decent tread. The servo-assisted ventilated
front discs offer amazing feel and bring the car to a stop safely and
quickly. Three of the alloy wheels are showing minor signs of ageing
commensurate with the age of the vehicle.
Having covered an exceptionally low mileage of just 43,391 and having had
two former keepers this car was registered on the 2nd May 1989 to a Mrs S
Casali by White Hart Honda Garage in Barnes. Ownership then passed to a Mr
Hosking in 1994 who was Honda's Press Workshop Supervisor, before a Mrs
Prouse took ownership 15 years ago in late 1997.
A complete set of handbooks exist all contained within the grey Honda
plastic file including a stamped vehicle service book, owner's manual,
authorised dealer list, network location map 1989 and owners card. Both
sets of keys exist along with two immobiliser tags.
The vehicle has 12 Months MOT and is HPi clear.
Any inspection warmly welcomed and encouraged to appreciate what a rare
opportunity this car will offer to its new owner. A true 80's icon.
