Auto-to-Manual Part 2

Why keep throwing parts at your car if it will never gain any real power. Short of a turbo or nitrous kit, there is no more effective way to increase your Civic’s horsepower. In later posts I will discuss how to make more power with whatever motor you have, but today I will talk about what motors can make you more power. One thing to keep in mind is the laws regarding swaps in your area. Before embarking on any project make sure the motor you choose is legal. Most municipalities require that the motor in your car is the same year or newer than the motor you are replacing. Also, they may require you to carry over all emission components.

Another H22 1st gen odyssey questions and advises from ody pro Hey guys, Got my 96 odyssey last year due to a growing family, I’m always a Honda freak guy, whatever or whoever talk to me about cars, all I can say is just about Honda. Anyway long story short, its been a great van for the last year, but sadly I really feel the ody so under power when it goes up on the hill or even cruising and taking off I live in Vancouver, BC, lots of uphill around where I live.

I’ve been searching enough for doing this swap, about mounts, hoses, axles, harnesses yada yada yada I got all the answer for it since 1st gen ody is just like a accord with a different body, now the only thing that stuck me up from doing the swap is what ECU that I need to run to stay automatic I have to stay automatic because the wife is the one that drive the van most of the time.

Now, my real question is, have anybody done this way before? Or is there any other way of doing it?

OBD1 PLUG CONFIGURATION Below is an example that shows the common onboard male connectors for a Honda OBD1 ECU. Take note of plugs: A, B, and D. The 4-plug OBD1 connector image below is proof these do exist and are usually found on JDM AUTO Civic, Integra, and Preludes.

That way you know what bolts go where. Let’s start by removing the old head, intake manifold, etc. Start by disconnecting the negative battery terminal. If you have a Strut Tower Bar, I would recommend removing that now. Next, jack the car up, and put it securely on jack stands. It’s not completely needed to be in the air, but it’s a lot easier to work on it that way IMO.

SHOP July 4th, , I’m not sure exactly what to make of this wiring harness. I have both F22b2 and H22a harness, not scared to make a frankenharness, but not sure what to do exactly. Does anyone have a complete step by step “how to” for retards that explains what needs to be done with pictures? I have three fairly knowledgeable guys ready to do this, but we are all not positive and need reinforcement.. I just want to make sure this thing is wired properly before engaging the engine and frying something.

usually found in the Honda Del Sol VTEC or Honda Civic Si. The B18C5 is original equipment for the Acura Integra Type-R. , Honda/Acura vehicles using a B18 series, non-VTEC engine. These are usually referred to as the “LS”.

A 2 step rev limiter is a great thing for those with a manual transmission that want to improve there launching with the car. Anytime you can decrease the number of variables to something, you will gain consistency. You can just plant it to the floor and worry more about engaging the clutch smoothly and launching the car successfully. Below in the article, I will talk about how you go about choosing the ideal settings for each of these parameters.

Improving your cars 60 ft, and times can improve in ways you never thought possible just by setting up 2 step. The reason why is that you can build boost pressure on the starting line, with no load on the motor, by setting up the 2 step limiter with the right parameters. How does the 2step rev limiter build boost with no load What two step gives you the ability to do, is retard the ignition at a certain RPM to keep the motor from revving higher in the RPM range.

By retarding the ignition at a specific engine RPM, we cause the combustion to occur later in the engines cycle. If your not super familiar with a 4 stroke motors cycle be sure to check our article here to help you with this explanation. There will now be a higher manifold pressure and temperature in the exhaust manifold that usually can only be found when the car is under load or at a higher RPM.

This increased manifold pressure in-turn will spin the turbine and give the engine boost pressure usually never seen on the starting line. As the timing is retarded even further in the combustion cycle process, the exhaust valve will open and combustion of the gas and air may even occur in the exhaust manifold itself, causing pressure and heat to increase even further in exhaust manifold and build even more boost pressure.

Jun 07,  · IDK but go to the help menu in the s software type in fanc. then click vtec perameters and it will show you there are 6 outputs on the ecu that are wired to a relay turning the relay on and off but the relay gets power from the battery and thats only for the vtec solinoid which doesnt draw amps like a good radiator fan does so you do the math brother. im just offering up my help, if.

May 26, , I’ve been a member here for a little while now and I have a build thread up in the Projects section about my 84 Ramcharger. Basically, I bought a Magnum to replace my old tired LA motor. One of my main reasons is the fact that the Magnum has MPFI and it has a pretty decent jump in power as well. Here’s my dilemma, I have finally dropped the engine in the truck and I have been going over my original wiring as well as my 95 harness. I have a pin out for the 95 harness and I have a bulkhead connector pin out with wire colors for the

How do you change an oxygen sensor on a Honda Accord EX? If the sensor has never been changed it may need to be heated with a torch in order to loosen it up if it will not loosen right away with the socket. Don’t use force until it is heated slightly which will contract the metal and make removal easier before stripping or breaking it necessitating drasti…c measures. On a Accord it is located on the exhaust system next to the catalytic converter.

Aug 16,  · There are some differences, but essencially you can just hook up what is needed by your harness for function. There may be some extra connections that the JDM/Harness had, but in your case they will not be used.

I put on the exhaust and the muffler tip sticks out a lil to much so im going to cut the high flow cat down a couple inches. I took out the engine sold the mpfi swap. Mount bracket swapped over from the a6. Injector resistor wires connected to each other. P28 ecu and si ecu plugs. Dizzy plugs cut off of the si harness and z6 dizzy plugs put on.

I traced back the fan switch wires and cut them down and put on the obd1 plug for it. Engine in and map plug extended purge plug extended and the clip was different so i changed it. Header and cold air intake on. Stock ecu plugs cut off and obd1 ecu plugs put on data check wired in also. Well good news she started right up runs good may burn a lil oil but during winter shes getting all new gaskets bearings and rings.

Cd player i got. Exhaust cut down 2″ and sitting better.

Can a Honda JDM D15B engine fit a 1988 honda crx?

Acceleration mph for the 4-cylinder models is improved around the mid second mark , with comparable fuel efficiency to its predecessor: The LX and EX engines produce less than 0. In California, the Accord EX with the available automatic transmission will produce less than 0. The five-main bearing block is high-pressure die-cast from aluminum alloy.

For those Honda ECUs not designed for low impedance injectors, their injector drivers can heat up and fail because of the added current. Even the injectors themselves can heat up. With peak and hold drivers, the 12V is still delivered to the injector but current rises. Testing has revealed nearly double the temperature when using low impedance injectors on the wrong application. It’s important to note that resistance decreases current and that current creates heat.

If current can’t be reduced then the chances of the drivers heating up and failing is increased. Of course, some of this depends on driving habits as well. High engine speeds and injector duty cycles can also create added heat, like when driving up a hill or at the track. Determining which fuel injectors you have is simple. All you need is some sort of digital volt-ohm meter DVOM -even an analog one will work.

One more step

Mon, 11 Jun, at 2: If there is a good amount of corrosion, watermarks, rust, a couple broken screws, a twisted case or any broken tabs, that might give you an idea of what the internals are going to look like. Once you have the lids open, look for any major areas of rust or corrosion mainly around the harness plugs but not limited to them. You can sometimes find it on the legs of the components. Look for rust as well because if there is corrosion then there usually is rust somewhere.

May 16,  · If he goes with an OBD1 non-VTEC D-series engine then all he needs to do is replace anything broken-during-shipping(sensors usually) with stuff from his d15b7 and swap over the throttle cable bracket because the new one is probably for RHD.

Welcome to the board. For straight on technical knowledge on the prelude, you have came to the right place. Basically since the wiring harness that came with the euro r is JDM we thought of using the wiring harness from my usdm h22 but noticed the extra plug on the distributor and several other extra plugs like the vtec solenoids.

You received a complete engine bay harness? Anyways, you if you have a US prelude harness intact, you can certainly use that. There are some differences, but essencially you can just hook up what is needed by your harness for function. Granted this is a blanket statment because i am not farmilar with the exact harness connections, but you should be fine. If someone knows someone who fabricates that adapter plate to connect the IACV to the euro r manifold please give me their info.

There is some good info here on this. There is also another thread on HT that 2point6 did, that is not active. The Euro mani is more efficent due to its design, but if you cant just fab one up yorself, you might just need to reuse your stock US mani. Well, im affraid i cannot speak intelligently on the exact Euro swap requirements. I dont believe there has been a member that has swapped a H22A5 or A8 motor into their car.
