SmokeeDizzla Posted October 25, 2010 Share Posted October 25, 2010 Hi all this is my first post on the Honda forum, so I think I should start by telling you a little about me (hopfully without boring to many people), so here we go: I am 24 and I love fast Honda's. I owned a 2009 Civic Type R and 2004 Civic Type R but now I am looking at buying a Honda Del sol! I have only ever tuned up one car but was not done by me - I paid a company in Warrington (uk) to do it for me. Now I am/feel I am ready to do one myself but I am not mechanically minded so I will probably be posting quite a few post lol. I am in no rush to complete the car, I just want to do it myself and have the statisfaction that once its completed I did it - I am sure most of you have had that already or are not far off. Anyway I have pick a del sol because I saw one when I was 9 years old and I have wanted one ever since. The big thing for me is speed and power which is why I have come on here to get help and advice from you guys who are doing or who have already done this. So let's start, this is what I need to know to get me started: The first thing I want to do is the engine, as mentioned in my essay above, it's all about the power and handling for me lol - so which engine would you recommend for me to drop in the Del sol? (I thought about the F20C from the S2000 but found out it's not easy to fit), also thought about B16B, B18C or the K20A. But I need something that's fast, not too heavy, as I don't want to any lose handling and preferrably not too hard to fit (e.g. same wiring loom and same engine mounts not essiental) also if i shoud get the gear box and ecu from the car as the wiring loom engine? So please let me know your ideas and thanks for your help in advance - hope I have not bored you all to sleep. Cheers Andy Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
