Here's mine.

Just your standard 2013 Honda Civic LX with NO UPGRADES.

Changing my car October of next year, though. Gunna go luxury in this bitch. Either Acura or Lexus.

... Could use a car wash, though.

Lexus holds its value better, And Mine could use a wash itself.

Thanks, We think it is flooded or seized, and we think the engine is going to cost more than I can afford.

Turns out its a minor electrical problem and a blown fuse too. No big deal.

9.5:1? Compression

I just went over your parts and that seems like high compression for a DD + Race. You want reliability on a daily driver. I'd sacrifice a little bit of power and drop down to 8.5:1 or even 8.3:1 (if you guys have off the shelf parts to go that route).

Forged Internals will allow me to run 9-9.5 compression at 30 PSI.

I used to run 9.5:1 many moons ago on my daily driver. Although it wasn't running crazy power. Was around 22psi. But I think with today's modern direct injection systems it wouldn't surprise me if it'll be perfectly fine at 30psi.

Worst case run e85 :D

Although I go for billet internals over forged. Will cost more but will be the better option. I used diamond. They were able to make pistons to my specification as there wasn't off the shelf 9.5:1 pistons available.

I used to run stock 9.5:1 compression @ 20psi on USDM SR20DE motors but this was before the E85 craze and before i went SR20VE, which forced me to lower compression and upgrade the POS 4cw crank + weak internals.


E85 tuning is ridiculous nowadays compared to what was readily available to us just 7 years ago.

Turbo charged the NA SR? DETs are readily available in the UK at cheap prices too. So would have just swapped out the engine. Aren't sr20det's common there?

400hp on stock internals is fine on a sr20det.

SR20DETs never came to the USDM market. We weren't lucky enough, I would have loved to have the Pulsar VZ-R N1 (I think Lucino VZ-R N1 in the UK) available in the states. It's one of my favorite cars of all time and one I will definitely try to import once it's 25 years old. The only SR20DE that came to the US was NA (hence no T) and on FWD cars like the 1991-1994 Sentra SE-Rs/NX2000, 1995-1998200sx SE-R (iirc the Sunny and Lucino in the UK) and the 1999 Sentra SE-L. I had a '98 SE-R that I ended up slapping a turbo on with a bunch of other shit, then I swapped it out for the 20VE and boosted that, followed by the final build I did which was dropping a VQ35DE from a Maxima and a 6spd tranny from a B15 SE-R. Also had a 92 NX2k and 91 SE-R that I ended up using as track cars before I sold them off.

SR20DETs from Bluebirds and Pulsar GTiRs were easily imported but there really was no need to swap the Sr20de out of my cars since they already had great internals for turbo. Only reason to swap them out was for the SR20VE that had a far better head design, but was plagued with shit internals for boost (so a lot of people make a ton of power but on NA instead)
