A B-series swap is easier to install and you can use stock Integra or Del Sol mounts, so the overall cost is going to be a lot lower than a K-series swap. Is that a good deal. If you can decipher that your engine is a 1. Its been done before in del sols but the figures I seen for cost are between 8k and 10k for the complete swap, If you have that kind of money lying around then by all means take on the project if you have some experience in swaps. I am the third owner, the previous owner had it since 1999.
All services were done at the dealer with some documents showing so that come with. Also has a believed to be factory original but i have never seen another one, del sol vtec rainbow pin stripe down both sides of the car. Im a nuub to everything i admitted. Just a awesome really rare car. Available only as a targa top convertible, the Del Sol managed to breath some fun and a little excitement into the Honda lineup before its own demise in 1997. The H22 really isn't that much heavier. Im a young kid just trying to learn about everything and what will be best for my car.
Recent service by Kuni honda, brand new tires less than 500 miles on them, brand new exhaust same time. Im really even questioning my sanity selling it, but my priorities are what they are right now and i need the money for my house so being one of my more valueable del sols, its will go if my reserve is met. Very low vin production number 0041. Is the price that significant to where im just lookin at the wrong sites. Has there ever been a single-cam B-series motor? It was offered in two trims.
Maybe 2 door dings on the whole car and one small scratch on front bumper. . The car leaks no oil and runs very strong. That's where the cost adds up. The rumors seemed confirmed when the 1996 front bumper was redesigned that eliminated the holes needed to fit auxillary lights and low side vents were added. When i purchased it this last year, i received the original title from the dealership with a date of 1993 and original msrp etc.
If your looking for a collector grade del sol here it is. Also i did see clearence problems for the k24 engines haven't seen any yet for the k20. The base engine in the S model was increased to 1. Very well maintained, only factory B16 car currently for sale. How long it will last depends on what kind of shape the motor is in, and how well it's tuned once you apply boost. I know there are all different types of b18's but which one would u prefer.
You also have to buy an expensive mount kit, custom axles, some kind of engine management probably K-Pro , plus you'll need to do a bit of hacking and fabricating. As for the K-series swaps, lots of people are putting those in their Civics nowadays. I purchased the car from the sister of the original owner as part of a estate sale after his passing. Rumors persisted about poor quality, and the early leaking roofs and faulty auxillary lighting the bulbs burned out too quickly , hurt sales. Ive found a K20a2 for 4k complete change over plus shipping and handling which will be another pretty penny.
The power and tuning potential of those engines must be worth it to the people running them. Either that, or you pay a shop to take care of every single aspect of your car? Has probably installed originally by dealer chrome around wheel wells that is 90' s cool but could be easily removed or painted black if wanted. The compression on that motor is pretty high. If boosting though will be bad for the b18 then i might change my mind really quick. Unfortunately, the Civic Del Sol didn't really offer that much of a performance boost and the targa top was prone to leaks and noise. Still has spare tire never mounted and factory jack etc.
I have not and you probably will not see another nicer factory paint del sol. I'm guessing you bought the car with the turbo kit on it already? A victim of questionable reliability and poor sales, it would ride off into the sunset. New refinements included a trunk release latch added near the driver side seat, a low fuel indicator light was added, and new seat materials were used. Great little car and plenty fun with the top off. I'd probably avoid the Type R if you plan on boosting. Hey im a nuub to the hondaswap.
