My EK Sedan/Ferio turbo project

Recommended Posts

It's been a while since I have been on here, but I still have this civic it's in my garden and I am currently waiting on a complete turbo kit from America, it should be with me in a week so I will upload pics of me fitting it. Pictures to follow soon

image_zpsq4744oeh.jpeg The interior of this civic is finished being stripped and painted, I'm on the look out for a EP3 steering wheel as I know they are a direct fit to the Ek, I think I'm going to leave her a single seater, more fun for me when this turbo gets fitted, The less weight the better.

I got bored of the 16" alloys I have on her at the minute so I bought some vti fanblades, that have been dipped, and they are abit lighter that the current wheels so it's a bonus!

Here's a pic of the alloys fitted, yes I know she needs lows, but that will have to wait until she's back on the road because if I lower her she won't get out of the garden.. Also she now has a front lip.

Finally got my turbo set up for my d series I'm going to be running it at 9 psi for abit then save up for forged internals, for now I'm hoping for around 240bhp with a p28 ecu and bigger injectors etc. The turbo itself is a T3-T4 rated upto 450bhp which is a lot more than I'll be running lol, I am installing this turbo kit myself and I'm not far off being finished, I'm just waiting for my sump to come back from having the oil return fitting welded in, and I have to extend the lambda sensor wire due to new location on down pipe, also need to connect wastegate vac line,  I'm hoping to have her running in the next few days

Long time since I’ve been on here I still have my civic and spent more money on her including coil overs, new wheels, 3” exhaust system and quite a few other changes the red stickers on the bottom picture have been removed after the photo.

My civic is currently off the road for the time being :( as she has developed a problem I’m not going to give up on her though, she’s has started over heating after being running for a while and started to push coolant out of the expansion tank the car runs fine from cold for about 15 minutes then overheats mainly when I’m boosting, would anyone be able to give me any advice to what it could be? Car is running the standard skinny radiator but I don’t want to fork out for a 3 core rad if it’s not the cause of the problem, the car was running ok on the standard radiator for a while but the temp gauge did rise to about 3/4 every now and then and dropped to 1/2 after the fan kicked in, but now the problem is a lot worse. Any help would be appreciated as I need her fixed as soon as possible, thank you

Give it a coolant sniff test sounds like head gasket issue

I will have to top the coolant up as it’s basically empty now as most of it leaked out when over heated, I will give it a sniff test I’m hoping it’s not the head gasket :(

Update on this civic she has now been sold someone offered me good money for her so thought it would be silly not to sell it bye.gif1 I will miss the car but bought a very nice 1980 Mk1 golf GTI Cabriolet as a replacement 8-) I’ve always wanted a Mk1 as I grew up in one so have a soft spot for them.

I expect you were heart broken waving goodbye to your boosted Civic cry.gif1

 

You're definitely onto a winner with a Mk1 Golf Gti because the only way the price will go is up.

 

Would be great to see your build thread over on our sister Site :

I was sad to see the civic go but always wanted a mk1 golf cabrio so I decided to get that 8-) I might put a build thread up on that website as I have got a few things planned for it but nothing over the top lol just want to make it look clean.
