Quick Cruise and CRX Fall Photo

Posted: 28th October 2017 by Paul in Car Talk

One change I made to the CRX recently is cutting a hole in the hood and slapping on a scoop from an old 300zx. Why? I noticed that in warmer temperatures, the engagement point in my hydraulic clutch system magically moves if the engine bay is running hot. I’m not quite sure why it happens, […]

CRX/EF Clutch Pedal Squeaking

If you’re hearing a squeaking or creaking noise from the clutch pedal assembly in an 88-91 CRX or Civic, you may be looking at either a fairly painless fix or a replacement of your entire pedal assembly. The 88-89 model had a weaker design and with age comes the chance the weld point will break […]

CRX B-Swap Finally Done

Tags: , ,

After owning my second CRX for about a year, I finally got around to performing a B swap. The stock motor was just too slow for me and I was getting tired of the oil burning, plus the transmission started making some bad bearing noise so I moved up my swap schedule. Here’s a breakdown […]

Honda CRX Hesitation/Stutter Under 3k RPMs

Posted: 7th October 2015 by Paul in Car Talk

Finally managed to track down the issue where I would get occasional hesitation/stuttering under 3k RPMs when the car had warmed up. This issue affected the car both when doing average acceleration from a stop and also when cruising say in 3rd or 4th gear. Solution? Swapped the ignition control module in my distributor with […]

New CRX Update

Posted: 5th October 2015 by Paul in Car Talk

Earlier this year I picked up a 1991 CRX Si as a highway cruiser. These cars are getting hard to find in half decent condition so I ended up impulse buying the first one I came across. I’ve discovered that I should have passed on this one… Quick look at the work being done so […]

2015 A Better Year?

Posted: 22nd March 2015 by Paul in Car Talk

2014 didn’t end up being a great year for hitting the highways. My daily driver Cadillac needed an overhaul of the rear brake system which also brought to light an issue with the axles being worn by bad bearings. Finding the parts turned out to be near impossible but the local shop handling this work […]

What’s New For 2014

Posted: 26th March 2014 by Paul in Car Talk

With the CRX off the road from the VI notice, I only managed to do one large trip for 2013. I expect to finish the needed work on the CRX and get the inspection done in the near future, but until then I’ve picked up a 1994 Cadillac Fleetwood Brougham for daily driving and highway […]

Honda OBD0 DPFI-MPFI Distributor Hack

Posted: 19th November 2012 by Paul in Car Talk

I have attached a quick example of how to wire a DPFI distributor to a MPFI Honda. This should only be used as a temporary measure to move the car a short distance, as the car will run in “limp mode” with a 3k RPM rev limit. My D16Y7 was just swapped in and I […]
