    Hi everyone, I’ve been meaning to do this for a while now but here we go

    Built it all myself on my driveway

    Started of with buying a eg6 with the 98spec b18c6 conversion,

    Unfortunately someone crashed into me and finished it.

    So I decided to start fresh and put it into another car

    I then bought a low mileage, good condition COMPLETELY STANDARD esi EG.

    1994, Tahitian green 79k miles with FULL Honda service history.

    Not the best of colours but I’m growing to love it. But don’t worry I’ve got plans for that later.

    I’m more of a power and performance freak so I’ve not done a lot to the looks yet, but I will be doing soon.

    So at the moment it’s a sleeper

    Below is how it stands now,

    And the next post is from the beginning when it was standard

    That’s probably it for the moment, but theirs loads to come, for the moment I’m keeping it as a sleeper, when I do the looks it will all get done at once.

    Loads more just can’t think of them right now

    The rest is yet to come so al keep adding when they get done

    I’ve just written all that and it’s mad when I look at it and think it was completely standard at one point lol I’ve live spent loads of hours and money on this lol

    as it stands today

    Tri-y manifold installation problem for b18cR

    When I installed the tri-y manifold I struggled with getting it on, eventually it went on but was a tight fit, so I thought it was for a b16, so I managed to stumble across another BRAND new tri-y manifold (tanny on Civic life) he told me that it was for a b18cR and his mates already got the same one on. So I bought it and then my luck the same problem, so I

    Awesome man, should be a belter when its done. Did you do all this stuff yourself?
  7. Ade T Club Veteran ★ ★ ★ ★ ★

    Sleeper! Thumbs up for doing all the work yourself!
  8. Rammy Senior Member ★ ★ ☆ ☆ ☆

    yeah did this all my self on my driveway with a halfords tool kit and the standard jack that you get in the back of you car lol got a proper one now tho, bit late but its gets everything else done

    even worked through the rain, hard work yeah, but it pays off at the end.

    very cool spec. when its done mechanically get it sprayed a good colour haha

  10. Rammy Senior Member ★ ★ ☆ ☆ ☆

    mechanically its all done, I've been driving it for about a month now, just didnt have time to write up the build thread,

    its really fast, runs perfect but im going for a full remap, the mapper has estimated around 220bhp main powers coming from the manifold

    and about the colour, it is getting changed, it is going to be different, never seen it done to a Civic before, and when its done it will definatly draw everyones attention

    don't worry its nothing stupid, ul all like it.

    but all in good time

    Very nice, I have a B18 lieing around but really cba putting it into my ek4 vti...decisions decisions :Frown:

    im loving the sleeper look though! :Grin:
  12. Rammy Senior Member ★ ★ ☆ ☆ ☆

    put it in, the torque that you get from a b18 is a lot higher than the b16, especially when you add the s80 gearbox, the car transforms. i advise you to do it, ul never look at a b16 again lol
