Vtec is a pain I guess, but

Vtec is a pain I guess, but not really. He wants 75 for a full swap, but I'm buying the dizzy off him for 20, he'd prolly sell the head for 20 plus like 20 to ship it, I'll talk to him about it.

CT he is at.

swapping the z1 head on your

swapping the z1 head on your current engine could cause some problems. Not only is the z1 a 1.5L engine, but the rods and pistons are different than your engine. Your compression ratio would be much higher than you are at now, which could cause you to have to use 91 octane (or higher).

If you're interested in this swap, I'd recommend getting a brand new engine. It's exactly what I'm doing on my car. My car, however, is a 89, so I have to do fun things like switch to obd1 and MPFI.

SVOBoy, since he has a 4 wire o2 sensor, isn't it much better than the single wire we're cursed with? How much different is a 5 wire from a 4 wire?

He has a d15b7 in there, so he's 1.5 also. I thought I mentioned the compression ratio as being a plus but mehbe I forgot. He told me via pm he didn't wanna go through that much work for the head though.

In all your learning about the z1 and widebands you haven't learned this yet? Here's a little primer:

1 wire: 02 sensor gets heated by exhaust gasses and sucks
4 wire: 02 sensor heats itself, and does so more quickly, but still sucks
5 wire: 02 sensor that heats itself and also gives accurate output.

1 and 4 wire o2s, narrowbands, they're called, only measure somewhat accurately around 14.7:1 afrs, the rest is just junk. To a narrowband 10:1 is the same as 13:1, they have no clue. However, widebands, 5 wire, have linear measurments so that all the afrs are accurate;y distinguishable.

I'll make a post in the general area about the differences with graphs and ****.

I just posted pics and info on the Vacuum gauge and digital fuel gauge in the diy section.

SVOboy,
How about you throw the CX tranny into Rex's hatch, drive to Wexford, PA and along with Kickflipjr and Danno, we can install it into the del sol camino? I'll even pay for the gas for the philshizzle round trip and put you up for the night if need be. ;-)

And maybe Diamond Larry can make the trip from Indiana. It's only 6.5 hours. And whomever else wants to join us. There is a Hummer Dealership nearby so I will stock up on eggs. :-)
