Project AWD CRX - Turbo DOHC ZC

well, the old light bulb went on when a guy on Honda-Tech built the first AWD ef chassis hatchback using the Realtime AWD drivetrain from the 88-91 Civic Station Wagons. The guys that built that car used a sohc vtec motor with a pretty radical turbo kit pumping out 430whp on the stock block.

For our motor, we are gonna be using a DOHC 1.6L JDM ZC block built with low compression D16A6 pistons and rods, and a PG7 86-89 USDM Integra cylinder head.

The donor car for the drivetrain will be a 88 Honda Civic Station Wagon with the Realtime AWD standard transmission drivetrain.

All of this madness will be stuffed into my old crx chassis that was in a major front end wreck a few years back. I ended up selling the car and then buying it back to do something stupid with it. The boys at pretech are going to work their magic and straigten out the front end and give it a quick squirt of paint.

Anyway onto the pics. This one is gonna take a while so dont expect too many quick updates. These first few pics are of the donor car and the dismantling/part out of everything we are gonna need for the swap.

Thx to cole @ plus one in nanaimo for finding us a buyer for the motor from the donor car to help us with cost of the car.

With the motor and drivetrain out the next big task is to pull the entire electrical system including the dash, body and trailing harness and then the biggest thing, cutting out the driveshaft tunnel. I dont think we are gonna need it. Id rather go the route of drilling out the driveshaft hangers from the wagon and welding them into the crx floor and rerouting the exhaust as required, but hey, im not about to argue with the head tech on the matter. We cross that bridge when we get there.

I know nothing about that Realtime AWD system. How is it biased? Where do the three or four horses go?

When slammedcivicsi and I were looking into doing that a few years back, it looked as though the 4 main rear subframe bolts lined up to the existing FWD chassis. If that is infact the case, drop the old rear subframe, throw in the new one, and locate your driveline accordingly. IIRC it would require cutting the floor to allieviate funky driveshaft angles.

...and good luck haha

2 ways to do it.

1: cut out the driveshaft tunnel and weld in tunnel from the wago.

2: run it in the exhaust tunnel, weld in the hanger bearing mounts, and run driveshaft accordingly.

I wanna do the latter, Das Birt wants to do the first one. we shall see exactly what needs to be done, once we get the crx on the rack and get the powertrain installed.

car is completely gutted. took the wiring harness, dash, dash harness, steering column, gauge cluster.

only thing left now is to cut out the D.S tunnel and cut out the trans mount hanger on the pass side. we'll be taking care of that this weekend.
