(Sanford&Son theme song playing in background)
We walk in with 45# tool bags.  We take what we need and don't break anything we aren't buying. We leave with a wheel burrow full. We show them every screw, washer, valve stem cap etc we have. We offer to empty our tool bags. And all my cigarette butts go home with me. We don't bitch about prices. And I suppose by now we've probably bought dang near a whole car 1 peice at a time...

They probably laugh and say 'it's those honest guys again.'

I'm not sure if I really want to repaint the entire car another color...there's just so much money involved with it that could be spent elsewhere. I'm thinking just redoing the Granada Black on the outside.

There's also the confusing situation of a bluetop H23 being cheaper ($300 or so) than an H22 loco If I can save money AND get a little more power/torque out of the box, that might be the way to go, right? I know it takes a little more to get it to work in an OBD1 car, but it's still a fair debate, especially since I want to go with more of a low/midrange setup in time.

For an H23, I would need OBD1 injectors, distributor (preferably internal), EGR blockoff...what else? I know the cost of these things would offset the savings over the H22, but I would also know what I'm getting with them. Whichever engine I get, it's going to be in the garage for awhile being rebuilt anyway...I feel like I'm overthinking somewhat, but this really is a hard and important decision.

your h23vtec will come with the appropriate fuel rail, injectors, IM, and dizzy.


I'd say you're overthinking it

Awesome. I think that's the way I'm going to go then. My friend Tyler (H_serious on PZ) went the other way with it: OBD1 injectors and dizzy and everything and he says it's running too lean now, so that's not how I want to go. I know I'll need an OBD2A-OBD1 conversion harness, and a chipped ECU...the plan is coming together.

I think I'm going to do an F20B, though. I like the potential there.

My build plan:
-Buy an F20B at some point this year. Probably late summer.
-Buy rebuild kit, clutch, OBD2A-OBD1 conversion harness, and ECU chip for the P72. Rebuild F20 over this time, because who knows how long it's been sitting.
-Take the car off the road at some point next year, remove the F22, delete AC, CC (neither work) and probably PS, install clutch and wire VTEC.
-Install F20B and run stock (except for the V2) for awhile while accumulating parts for a mild all-motor build.
-Repaint and fix the small rust spots.

Change of plans. I'm going to hold off on the engine swap for a few years. I want to fix 3 R's that are wrong with the car now: repaint, rust, and rims. After that I'll turn my attention to an H22.

Right now, the exterior rust is very manageable. Just two quarter-sized spots on the rear fenders, one near the driver's rear tail light, and a few scratches here and there. Overall, the exterior looks to be better than, say, Lindso's new SE, but the paint is literally and figuratively fading quickly. I'll take some close-up pictures of it before long...I've managed to photograph it making it look better than it really does.

On another note, God willing, I plan to pick up something for it tomorrow. I'll reveal what it is when I have the full pieces. It's not an engine.

You have clear coat fail.
The paint underneath is fine as frog hairs.
I did a test spot when you left it at my house one day.

We just gotta get rid of that failing clearcoat.
