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.

I know it's long, but oh well. I was bored and didn't feel like cutting it
all up and editing it. So, watch however much you want to. lol

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.

Yes, this engine swap did take me a while to do. It was my first engine
swap. This car is 20 years old, there are a lot of seized bolts. The axel
nuts are very hard to get off without air tools.
I have now mastered the art of taking engines out and I can do it in about
2 hours now. I have done it without a hoist.
stop all the comments on how long it took. they get old.
enjoy the video.
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.
