searching...
 
Well I couldn't communicate with the e-bay seller that had the wiring harness and ecu, but I couldn't get in contact with him. I dont know if I should continue on e-bay or go to honda-tech. I dont really know what the parts should be worth so that is making it a little difficult. What should a d16y5 cylinder head be worth anyway?

I can relate to you my experience with a d15z1 cylinder head. I originally purchased one for $60 on ebay. I sold it again a few months later for $35.

The gas mileage engine parts don't have a very high demand, so you might want to lurk on honda-tech and post a few WTB ads. You can probably get it for around $50.

I think you can find an ECU for around $30-40. Once again, the low demand forces the price way down.

Alright, Do you think I
 
Alright, Do you think I should stick with buying a new 5 wire O2 sensor? I think that would be the best even though that will be a pretty penny.

If I were you i'd try to see if someone parting out the HX engine, etc. will also part with their five wire o2 sensor for cheap. I managed to find one for $25 on honda-tech a while back. It's not as good as a new one, but it was a LOT cheaper.

I say to get it running first, and then worry about the little stuff.

once you have the stock
 
once you have the stock connector for the o2 sensor i believe you can buy the ntk wideband replacement sensors from any source and just change over the pins...should be the L1H1 sensor available from any wideband/tuning distributor...

I've found it's worth
 
I've found it's worth checking www.car-parts.com when looking for parts, they are sometimes a bit more then Ebay, but also tend to be local so you save on shipping.

One of the links matt posted about the vx head is selling a 5 wire o2 sensor.

I would not put a universal bosch type on a honda.

No, I was just saying, because you can find the bosch ones for like 40 bucks and it's very tempting.

tomauto 04-15-2006 11:29 AM

OEM
 
I'll stick with OEM to keep it as least complicated as possible.

GasSavers_Ryland 04-15-2006 09:12 PM

I contacted the seller and he thinks there are 110,000 miles on this o2 sensor. It's not brand new, but it's better than nothing :)

I know a guy who tunes with a Bosch wide band sensor and a PLX...it works just fine and dandy!

But for my VX, I only used the NTK L1H1. I actually sold that thing with over 200K miles for over $100.

Tuning with the bosch is fine, but something about them in hondas for the long term seems to make them crap out.

He is parting out that entire civic....so there might be a few more parts to get a hold of...I guess i will start getting parts for it.

bosch does in fact redistribute the honda/ntk L1H1 sensor...
i believe dealer cost is $175...and they markup from there...

ebay o2 sensor
 
I asked him if he had any other parts for the HX and he had sold the HX motor last week. - I wonder why he couldn't sell the 5 wire o2 sensor to the same person...I have it though. ---The search for parts continues.

H-T Member w/parts!!
 
I recieved this message today from an H-T member...now we need to start talking price.

"The mani is complete with trottle body, injectors, fuel rail, all sensors etc (egr)...Just unbolted it and its in my room now. The ecu is just sitting there too."

He sent me a picture, and it looks pretty decent.

So now, price...what is fair??

tomauto 04-19-2006 06:54 AM

I might need some Saturn parts sometime. Actually, my hood has a little damage from my accident last winter. Since it still opens and latches ok I'll probably leave it alone unless I get a really good deal.

tomauto 04-26-2006 03:00 PM

okay
 
I will be in Evansville, Indiana (southern Indiana) for about 2 more weeks. I will gladly go to the junkyard for anyone.

May you have warm air, light traffic, and mostly downhill travels!

tomauto 08-23-2006 03:41 PM

so...the time is now
 
https://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/D16y5...spagenameZWDVW

I found a head online. If I really want to do this, the time is now. I dont see any problems what-so-ever.

After a long hard summer of working I now have the money to invest in some projects. This summer I basically worked 16 hours a day 6 days a week, and 7-8 hours on sunday. It meant I had no time to myself but sleep for a solid 2 months. I can't wait to get started!
