update:

got the motor in tonight basically to get shit mocked up and to figure exactly what we have to do with the floor boards.

as well we got the passenger side trans mount hanger welded in today. Between the normal crx/civic d series trans mount frame hanger and the wago version there is slight height difference. Give or take i believe it is an inch.

From the other 2 guys that did this swap in the EF hatches, the 1st guy welded a tab onto the existing frame hanger This is probably easier initially.

Since we had the complete donor wagon, we cut the hanger out, drilled out the spot welds that attached it to the frame, and transfer the mount to the crx. honda spot welds the mounts in the same place, so it was just a matter of lining up the new mount to the old spot welds and welding it in. easy.

Next project is, notching the oil pan to clearance the tranfer case and once thats done, its time to start cutting the floor up. That will be the biggest pain, but it looks like honda once again got lazy and they may have taken the hard work out of it, we'll see.

Like i said, pics tomorrow. bed time for now.

So apparently the Birt has been working. I popped into the shop tonight to grab some turbo measurements and lo and behold the old crx tunnel was cut out and the wagovan tunnel was trimmed and installed...mocked up mind you, but in where its supposed to be.

jesus fuck boy works fast. pics tomorrow.

we started to prep the interior sheet metal to weld in the wagon tunnel this weekend by removing the sound deadening that honda puts on the floor of the car. Normally, you have to either sit there and peel it off, grind it off or melt it off....we opted to try something a little different....

Dry Ice! I wish i had time stamps on the pics to show just how quick this process went. But all in all, total time from start to finish was about 35 mins....

I'm guessing some sort of "Super Low" range for the AWD trans?


As for the seam welding, I happen to know of a guy who's new enough to welding that he might be conned into doing the job just for the experience (and some beers)

meh, we aint gonna bother with seam welding this one.

tunnel is in....its about 80% welded up with driveshaft hung to make sure everything is lined up correctly.

the rest of the tunnel welding will be done tomorrow and then the interior goes back in, shift bucket goes in and gonna start figuring out the gas tank and other rear end shit.

here are some more progress pics

I've got $10 for the "Buy Birt a real welding helmet fund."

Looks rad so far. Can you defeat half of the driveline for dyno tuning, or will I have to make an effort to get somewhere to see it?
