VEHICLE STORY

SEE UPDATES AT BOTTOM OF STORY So this is a new project picked up by myself and my good friend Billdozer. It's a simple 99 civic dx-SOHC d16y7 motor and auto trans. NOT TRYING TO MAKE A RACECAR! This is going to be a clean simple car that looks good and runs well. The car came with an Invidia cat-back exhaust, an AEM intake, NGK plug wires and what looks to be an ebay strut tower brace. The head gasket is blown, so we'll be removing the head and getting a full port and polish job, as well as a new header, cam gear and probably a full pulley set. We're doing this on a budget, and are stockpiling parts right now preparing for a full on teardown and rebuild session. We'll also be adjusting the height with some lowering springs and giving the body a makeover with some new paint to boot. Billdozer has always been a brother to me so when this thing gets finished, it's all his. I'm only here to help.
