I just ordered my d15z1 engine from Nippon Motors. The whole thing is going to cost around $550 shipped to my house. It's a little pricey, but I'd very interested in seeing the gas mileage improvements I'm going to get after putting this puppy in my car.
I need a new engine anyway. My previous engine blew a head gasket a few months back which (I'm pretty sure) warped my head. I was getting 38mpg before that, and now I'm getting 33ish. Then again, the mechanic that fixed it may have jacked up my timing.
This will be yet another step in a long journey to get uber good gas mileage in my civic.
Well, that is definately awesome. Now you can sell off some of your old crap, haha. In any case, I can't wait to see it done. How long are you gonna spend putting it in? Dropping it or lowering the car over it? And finally, do I smell a full write up? That would draw some people here to look at it, haha.
Talk about fast service. I ordered the engine around 3pm on friday, and the engine arrived today. The best part? It has a five wire o2 sensor on it. I just bought another one for $25, but this means i"ll have an extra to sell or use if I need to.
