    Re: da6 ef3 build

    From the pic it looks injected and that will make it very easy.
    Just need mount kit from some one like haspot or imnovate.
    You can reuse the ef3 loom if you run extra wire for vtec but personally id just throw the da6 one in.
    I would also swap the dash cluster over but you dont need to just looks better when your rev range is high.

    unsure if you need to swap hubs.
    Im only going off the research I did from when I was going to do ef3 vtec but I just got another DA6 as a project.
    What I was planning on doing with the hubs were prelude vtec ones with DA6 axels.
    That apparently works.

    Good luck, I look forword to seeing how it turns out and filling in gaps in my knowledge.
    Also see you have posted on superhonda.

    Re: da6 ef3 build

    search its all been covered look up skitz ef build

    pretty sure you can use da6 mounts aswell and pretty much your'll need to add a few wires for vtec

    nah you will need converion mounts unless you cut the part that is welded to the chassis and reweld it into the correct location so much easier to get a mount kit.

    personally i wouldnt use the da6 loom i tryed this in my b16a swap into my ef and ended up bining it and running the 4 extra wires needed for vtec on the ef3 loom (vtec pressure, vtec solenoid, knock sensor and 2nd 02 sensor)

    Re: da6 ef3 build

    right striped out dash heater boxes to get to all the wires. dismantled and cleaned b16a n just cleaned box. Cut front mount bracket off front arm haven't decided weather to cut drivers side mount off chassie rail or to make gearbox mount to fit. i have engine and box in the ef now with only engine mount and trolley jack holding her in place minus inlet manifold am using ek4 radiator need make holding mounts for that and have decided to turbo my b16a as i allready have a brand new T04E. Waiting on evlcvic whos waiting on me for a b16a t3/t4 manifold have pics and will post them up when find cable to run camera to pc but have this pic already

    3. convert crx to b16a and turbo it.
    4. upgrade brakes suspension fuel lines add surge tank etc.
    5. roll cage it.
    6. paint it i have a idea of what i want.
    7. custom made dash.
    8. remove glass and add plastic instead.

    so im gona be busy for the next couple of days will post pics up as i get along.
