Honda Civic Rebirth
My 1991 Honda Civic hatchback rebuild. The car was in really bad shape and desperately needed TLC, so I went ahead and restored her from scratch with the help of a few buddies who run a shop. The whole process took about 9 months, hence 'The Rebirth' title which seems to go along well like it's a new born baby.
The motor is B16A with: CTR pistons, full Omni valvetrain, CAT cams, ITR IM, Mild P&P head, H22A injectors, OBD1 converted, and stock B16A header. The Exhaust is Apexi WS2. The actual numbers at the dynapack are pretty embarrassing (I was just trying to get her to run efficiently for the emissions test, which she passed no problem). I have no idea what this motor is capable of. I'll post more vids once she's fully tuned. Props to Nick at Teknotik for the tuning.
*Parts alone for this project costed about $5K to 6K. I did the labor with the help of my buddies and bodywork was done by an affiliate. So I spent roughly $10K in total. I plan to keep this car forever so I don't see 10K as much money at all.

Vtec Song - The Birth of A Civic - Honda Vtec Song
The birth of a honda civic 1989 civic hatchback
Honda Song Lyrics
honda vtec sound
my vtech goes bwaaaahhh
I love my Honda like I love my ganja
Ill smoke ya v-8 like I smoke marijuana
Back up boy and show some respect
My Honda civic has a 4 cylinder vtec
When I go out people wanna see my ride
They always stare at the "Type R" on the side
I painted my hood black for that carbon fiber look
My windshield wiper lights that off tha fuckin hook
I took off my hubcaps cause they give me better times
When I rip a new track Im stunnin on my rhymes
My Exhaust turned sideways with a 5 inch tip
I raced a z06 and took home his pink slip
I got a new spoiler from J.C. whitney
It's a 15 inch doublestak worth every penny
APC decals and two racing stripes
4 ion blue daytime runiing lights
When I take off tha front tires go up in smoke
And chevys with 350s aint nothing but a joke
Went to Pep Boys and bought all the neon lights
Its like Las Vegas when you see me at night
Dont mess with tha vtec cause itll send ya home
Cryin lika fat kid that dropped his ice cream cone
When ya see my comin get outta my way
I gotta cruise tha mall cause you know its Friday
I doing loud fly-bys all down tha highway
Bumping some techno with my visor turned sideways
If you wanna race ya ass will get tossed
I throw in it neutral and rev up the Exhaust
Im gonna leave your ass in a world on pain
My adrenaline rushin with tha rice in my veins
Nutra slam it in drive when the light turns green
And Ill eat a Saleen like ya momma lean cusine
I got another victory in the "domestic basher"
Ill pull in front of you and throw on my flashers
When ya lost you called me a cheater
Ya just couldn't hang with the 1.6 liter
Tha Civic is more like a rocket than it is a car
Youll be sayin to ya self damn is that a type R
Dont mess with Hondas cause theyre outta ya class
I wait till ya get beside me trying ta pass
Let ya hear tha vtec when I step on tha gas
Next thing ya know your ass is finishin last
I fix you a "Type R" burger with some vtec sauce
Youre ass will be fired cause Honda is tha boss
Is NOT called nitrious tha shit is called called NOS
You should know by now your life is a loss
Its about time you stop driving all them wrecks
Get a job at hardees and save all ya checks
Or sue KFC for falling on ya neck
And when you get paid buy yourself a Vtec

1989 Honda Civic SI Hatchback. Its Alive, My Car is ALIVE!!!!!!!!!!
This video was recorded in 2008. That was the first time to start my car in 8 years. The Civic was just sitting in my garage since 2000. But sadly the car hasn't been started or run since then. So we have to try to get it started again. Joseph Elliot is the mechanic on my car. Replaced in 2008: gas tank, injectors, plugs, wires, fuel rail, fuel filter. I'm definitely going to need body work because its been outside for two years; now there is a lot of rust. But the interior is great, needs new tires, registration, insurance, brakes, supension, on and on and on and on.
1989 Honda Civic Hatch B16 first drive
I went for a ride in my buddy's 1989 Honda Civic, he just finished a B16 motor swap. No tach yet, and his gas guage does not work. A work in progress, I helped him do a couple things here and there. He so far has less than $4 grand in it, and a year of work.
I like V8 torque myself, but the power to weight ratio on these little Honda's are very impressive.
More videos of this car to come, with a tach installed he will be able to tell where he is in VTEC. This Civic has only seats, door panels, and a dash left inside. No carpet, sound deadening, headliner, or back seat. It has a custom fabricated roll bar and 4 point seat belts.

1989 Honda Civic Wagovan SOLD!!!!
The black hole is actually a hood scoop covered by a metal plate for rain. And in the end I was trying to show the battery has been relocated behind the passenger seat.
