Default New to the honda scene

Hey, my names Andrew. I live over in Topeka. I picked up my first honda this fall from over in KC. It's an 85 dx hatch. I bought it with a blown motor, no rust, clean interior, everything is stock and only has 60k original miles! Guy i bought it from bought it off the original owner and drove it until the timing belt snapped on the highway. Came with tinted windows and the rims already on it. I pulled the motor, rebuilt the head and put it back together and runs like a champ now. Been throwing around the idea of upgrading it to something fuel injected. Anyway, her she is!

I've never been a huge fan of anything earlier than 88, but this hatch is very clean. Just curious, what did you pick it up for with the motor blown?

I am pretty sure hasport makes a b-series mount kit for this car.

Engine compartment is TIGHT.... but I'm pretty sure I've seen a couple of the 84-87 civics with a b swap

This exactly, there has actually been a beat up swapped hatchback this body style for sale on craigslist for awhile now. Not gonna lie, for the price point you should buy it and swap everything over to your super clean silver DX hatch. Would make for a very nice Retro DD.http://kansascity.craigslist.org/cto/4258449770.html
