:::LilMsPrelude::: 1992 Si

Well,
Where to start? I have big plans (like everyone) for my lude of course. I am into the Big Stereo, subs, amps, etc. So Many things waiting to be done. So little money and time... Anyways, here we go.

My Baby is the OH so Stylish 4th Gen-92.

(not so great cell Phone pic--sorry)



I bought it for $500 from a kid who had gone into the military. He let his Mother drive it... straight to hell... she spilled pretty much EVER kind of liquid you could spill in the passenger seat and on the center console--seriously, I just bought a new Hazard switch because the one in there does NOT work anymore... and I have cleaned the HECK out of it.

Seriously, that carpet can stand up by itself!!! (new carpet kit coming soon!)
It looks a LITTLE better now.


Anyways, She never put oil in it, or ever opened the hood to say the least... the story I hear is she goes through about a car every 18 months... only thing she does is put cheap fuel in it.. I find out later.... filthy IACV made the rpm's fluctuate...etc....
SO, I get the car towed to a boyfriends Mechanic in some Hick town, and tell him to buy a replacement engine and put her in... I SO Wish I had done my research BEFORE going through this....
(sorry for the dirty engine bay... you will see I have since steamed the whole thing)
I'm driving it down the road, about 13K on the "replacement" engine and I lose the timing belt!
Into the Garage

"There's Your Problem!"

A couple of essential parts, performance spark Plugs, belt, water pump and tensioner:

Back Together---

UNFORTUNATELY... after a compression test-- 3 of the 4 cyl are dead.



Exterior:
Stock
Right side, rear Fender has moderate damage...

Interior:
Stock

Engine:
H23
(E-bay) cold Air Intake

Suspension:
Stock

ICE:
Alpine MP3 HU
2 MTX 8302 Amps
2- MTX 7000 series, 8 Ohm SVC, 12" subs
4- MB Quart 5.25 mids
2- MB quart Tweets

Future Mods/Repairs:
-Fix right side and paint ---thinking a VERY dark Purple
-like to drop the nose about 1-2"
-New carpet kit
-Fiberglass Amp Rack and Subs in trunk and FG speaker Pod's in doors
-Sound Deaden Interior, doors, and trunk
-heat shield/sound deaden hood
-replace cracked Vacuum lines
-currently upgrading BIG THREE and Power/starter/ground connections
-New Headlights--stock or hi intensity?? undecided??

Next: Upgrades......

SO..... since it has to go to the shop to have the head machined and valves replaced, I thought I would do a little work on the electrical, while the hood was still off.

First to come out was the OLD stereo wire... I plan on running about 1000 W in the trunk, and I got a Heck of a deal on some (slightly used) 1/0 AWG :



Out with the Old:




I noticed another backyard Mechanic eff-up!!

see if you notice it...


I was removing the wires off the starter and found that the third bolt on the engine/Tranny mount is missing..... WTF?????

I swear I took some engine degreaser and a power washer.. but I sure am still seeing a LOT of grease, oil and dirt in these pictures. :sigh:

I forgot to take pictures... and there aint now way in Hayde's I am taking it off again... But, I found a better way to route my 1/0,

INSIDE the Fender! I followed a factory Harness up over the wheel well and came out just in front of the old air filter box:

from the Fender well, there is actually a VERY NICE grommetted access hole to the interior of the vehicle just under the blower fan on the passenger side, and to the right of the Computer module/housing.

inside the car--(I still Need some grommets for the pass through the seat rail and under the hood)

Thank you Yogi... to tell you the truth, when the timing belt went and I got the bad news about the valves, I went looking for a new car... I was so depressed at all the work my baby needed... but the more I looked around and driving other cars, not a dang one of em compared to my baby lude... And I dont mind getting my hands dirty, so... it is my "project." And I will get her in pristine shape once again. I have a whole LAUNDRY list of stuff to do... but it is worth it IMO.

Im not interested in having a racer at all... gas is toooooo dang expensive, I want something I enjoy and drive to Portland or to my old hometown on the weekends. It just has to be trustworthy, and hence the reason I am going kind of crazy on the stereo too.

As far as the drive train, suspension, etc., I have not done anything nor do I know enough to tell you what has been done..... I KNOW I want to get a performance clutch installed.. the OEM gets hot and slips to easy in the summer heat/driving. Again, something else a real mechanic would have inspected and probably replaced.

I WOULD like to drop the front end about an inch or two, I saw one on another forum that looked VERY nice, kind of an aggressive stance/look to it.

and of Course I put on the e-bay cold air intake... even that cheapo set up made it SOUND better and run better... no idea how much, but I swear it increased HP as well...

here is a sneak peak of what is going in the trunk:




and TWO of these:

One for the subs, at 4 Ohm (mono Parallel) = about 450W
and one for four 5.25" mids (will be fiberglassed in the door) and 1 pair of tweets in the door as well....

and the source:

forgot this until I did "The LIST"

the only real body damage is on the right rear fender.

Got a Divit above the wheel well and damage towards the bottom where it meets the door.... the story is that the previous owner turned to sharply leaving a gas station and swiped the concrete pillar. I Swear it wasnt me!!!

well..... as you will get to know me............


I was a long haul truck driver... and I had a BF that was also driving for the same company.. I knew I wanted this car... but the local Honda Dealer wouldnt even deal with it???? ( )
He, my then BF, lived in Weiser, ID. and had a mechanic that worked on all of his vehicles, so I thought I was safe.... tow the car over and let him spend a few months working on it, while I was out on the road. Come to find out, NOT Just anyone can work on a Honda... they are a unique engine...I now know.... that first mechanic didnt have a dang clue obviously!

Finally got some more work done on the lude today.
The tool I ordered finally came in the mail on Friday!


I would rather have the "plier" type, but I can't afford the $150 this lil guy did the trick tho!
I started by laying out the parts/pieces I needed to start assembling.

I didn't have any tech-flex, I may do that later, as well as some better heat shrink.. this stuff was just ok.. it didn't tighten up around the fitting itself quite like I would have preferred. It was free with those MONDO 1/0 fitting so I am not going to complain.
Assembly:
Put your heat shrink and Jacket on first and strip JUST enough back to fit in the barrel,

Place it in the Crimper,

And SMACK the heck out of it... LOL! and this is what you get....

Fire up the torch and SLOWLY heat the shrink tube to prevent blistering and burning.

The next thing to do is take off the Battery rack so I can get my Dremel down into the Ground Mount:


And the new starter wire:

Not sure why I missed taking a picture of the final assembly-- the top hole on the ground mount is for the bracket that holds the two wires together and away from any moving parts.
Since I had the Dremel in hand... I took off one of the strut/shock mounting nuts and took it down to bare metal:

Gawd I Love the look of this BIG wire!

Next, the alternator.... I was told Honda does this rather Odd thing and runs the primary from the alt through a sensor of some type... for the computer to monitor the output..... I 'spose.. but anyways, it runs over the top of the valve cover, goes somewhere down against the firewall the re-surfaces up at the strut tower and into the fuse box under the hood. It is "paralleled" and sent to the battery from there.

This factory wiring is 4AWG, so I just added another run of 4 AWG around the front. I will be replacing it with some better wire in the future. I didn't have enough of the good stuff left.. lol.. so I ran some of the 4AWG i pulled out from the previous install. It's not the prettiest, but it will get the juice there!

I used the stock flex tube and just pulled some more 4 AWG through it to go to the battery... the factory wire was full of corrosion!
(sorry for the bad picture... but it was so white the camera just wouldn't focus/differentiate)


And it all ends right here!



Compared to what USED to be there...

Slight improvement..... no?
of course the wire for the stereo is not hooked up yet... I still need to get some grommets for it.... the hole itself is 3/4" and the wire measures 1/2" I believe...
the token is about the same size as a quarter:

I'm gonna take the head unit out of the dash and tow her down to the shop!!! tomorrow or Monday!!!
YAY!! I am getting excited!!!

I forgot to ask. Are you using all four mids? I suppose thats one way to quiet down those tweets. When I was at Rockford's training one of instructors had a set of Quarts in his G35 and they had a great smooth mid but the tweet was WOOWEE! bright. They were pillar mounted which wasnt ideal in my book. Had they been coaxially mounted or closer to the mid I think it would have helped.

four mids (2 each) in the bottom of the each door...

I have the tweets capped back so they arent too harsh-- just ONE set is all it needs.

Re: :::LilMsPrelude::: 1992 Si

I wish I had good news for ya Brash...

I got into a lil financial conundrum with a court trustee and lost a bunch of money I was going to use to start putting my interior together. *sigh*
-insert bad word here-

And I moved so the funds are pretty nil right now.

I'm Just drivin' her and enjoying listening to the engine for now. I am bargain hunting for parts and doing little affordable things to bring it all together. I SHOULD take pictures of all my lil toys I 'spose. I might just do that hits weekend.
