Re: 94 EX 5sp, H23a-VTEC swap and LSD DONE

price is down to $2600 could be a 5 speed swap, but i'm thinking since they didn't even spring for a $200 chipped Phearable ECU computer or a tune... probably origin 5 speed. Could get the VIN and find out. Still imagining picking this up and garaging it as a backup in case mine gets smashed on high...

Re: LokRobster's 2017 Project: 94 EX 5sp w/ a H23A-VTEC

I have the GReddy! It was on for a while and i cracked it doing some Baja maneuvers (and I’m not even lowered yet), so the GReddy lip will get some repairs this fall and get reinstalled. Also found some funky mirrors I’ll be putting on at the same time. It’s too hot and I’m too busy at work to do th...

94 EX 5sp, H23a-VTEC swap and LSD DONE

Ran across this today; DFW TX area. Someone built a JDM H23 blue top, says it’s a EX wagon (i can’t see sunroof in pics) and then took the wheels off and now it’s for sale from some fly-by-night Dealer: $3k asking on offer-up https://offerup.co/PLTi0xy14O They have the roof rack, it’s the original d...

Re: Selling my 97 EX Wagon, DFW North Texas area

Sorry ya'll. I got your text and responded. My wagons are sold, except my daily-driver tinker car in my photo. The guy who bought my daughter's 1994 LX automatic wagon is selling it though... he was planning to do a 5sp conversion & H23a Blue Top swap like my 94 EX but then found out he's got a ...

Re: Transmission rebuild/replace

Depending on your attachment to the wagon, I'd source a junk yard automatic rather than rebuild. Find one that someone wrecked (means it was running when it died!) or a donor car where the engine is toast.. Pull the stick and smell the fluid and then buy if it ain't burned-up smelling. A salvage yar...

Re: LokRobster's 2017 Project: 94 EX 5sp w/ a H23A-VTEC

Ah, the color; nope I’m going for a WW2 fighter look. The tan/gold/Champagne color is actually my least favorite, plus it’s all oxidized from 20 years in the desert. It’s going to be OD green (CARC, Chenical Agent Resistant Camoflauge) w blacked out Acura wheels, tinted windows. Probably stage it li...

Re: CH9 SiR

great meet. fun variety of VTECs there.

OK, so how do you post pics inline? it's an html code entry, right? there's a post about Pic Links on the 2nd forum section, but the three dudes posting there are just bemoaning the doom of the wagonclub site. :)

LokRobster's 2017 Project: 94 EX 5sp w/ a H23A-VTEC

Not 'blown' as in turbocharging... so, i needed a new engine. been dreaming of putting in an engine swap and picked up a H23 Bluetop. After a few months of research (yeah... AFTER i bought an en...
