I believe this car was 2200 lbs stock, I'm aiming to get it around 2000 lbs. Automobil Revue 1994 in German and French. Wind and exhaust sounds are reduced, especially in sedans, though tire noise is a problem. So if the weight difference comes from the motor or suspension then I don't really care. All three of those cars are still piss light compared to most vehicles on the road.
My car is not going to be a daily driver any more, so why not shed some lbs. The oxygen sensor is mounted on the cast iron exhaust manifold, to be as close to the cylinders as possible, so the sensor will be as hot as possible for more accurate readings. Normally I'd agree with you. There are other reasons why I'd like to tinker with boost in the low-end but that's another story altogether. It has two O2 measurement electrochemical cells, rather than the single cell that at the time was universal. If you read the numbers correctly sedans are heavier, while hatchies still reign supreme. A heat gun will work, but make a sticky mess.
You'd probably lose efficiency doing that anyway from a performance standpoint, lowering the static compression just allows you to run more boost safely; but since 6-8psi is the goal that's really not a huge concern. Although they pull smoothly enough in the middle gears, they fail to exhibit much overall gusto—especially with automatic transmissions. I think you are misreading. Does the almost 100 lbs really matter all that much in the big scheme of things? Civics ride smoothly for a subcompact, although sedans have a much better ride than coupe and hatchback models. And the rear diffuser wasn't anything special or beautiful, It wasn't a ferrari style thing.
Forging is the manufacturing process that makes wheels stronger, and therefore lighter so less material is needed. I did this in 4° F weather using a mallet and gasket scraper. If you are looking to make a Hypermiller, you should hit up Those guys are bat shit insane with mpg tips and tricks. A left-hand drive version of the Civic Coupé was released as a limited edition in Japan, imported from the United States, to celebrate the tenth anniversary of the dealer network in 1994. Civics stand apart from the crowd because of their nimble handling, smooth running, enjoyable operation, and miserly gas mileage. This same model sensor has been adopted by racing teams to monitor the combustion in each cylinder of racing engines during the tuning process, one per cylinder, because of its sensitivity.
Look for rust on the floor pan and run water over the right lower corner of the windshield to watch for water leaks before buying the car. The popular Rota Slipstreams weigh 11. Aero is something I'd look at after getting the engine squared away, but I've got boatloads of help in that department. I guess there is Rain-X. Interior room is surprisingly good for a subcompact. That's why a torqueless 4cyl can keep up with a 225hp v8, because the v8 is in a 3600+ lb vehicle.
Also in the pic is the Tray I started to build that will mount the battery inside the bumper. If you're going to be swapping the motor and re-doing the suspension anyway, what's the big difference? It's all about the power to weight ratio. The D15Z1 engine's efficiency was enhanced by placing cam followers bearings at every cam lobe, to reduce friction, the use of only two piston rings per cylinder, to reduce friction, and the ability to burn an ultra lean for the time fuel air mixture at idle, and below 2,500 rpm at low load. You can do things to that motor that make it amazingly efficient, re-tuning it, keeping it in lean burn, etc. I'm actually very interested in having a 3 or 4-lobe roots supercharger slapped on the d15z1 if it can be done at a reasonable price which is questionable.
That's a And thanks for the pointer on the T15 and the bike injectors. Compared to the previous generation, the cowl was raised, which allowed for more suspension travel. At its introduction in, it won the Award for the second time. Every pound counts if you are serious. You pay a hefty price for a nice Civic, but in this case the expenditure might well be worth it.
Coroplast is that plastic that looks like corrugated cardboard, and is used for cheap signs, etc. The new Civic was larger than its predecessor, had a more aerodynamic body and the wheelbase was increased to 257 cm 101. Not sure if the bike injectors idea is economically feasible but I'll be sure to look into it. In addition to faster accelleration, less weight will decrease your braking distance and improve handling.

Depending on how much you want to spend will determine on how light you can go. The parasitic losses from running a turbo are lower, too.
You could easily fabricate one with coroplast and rivets. Call me crazy, but I have my reasons. I just did some checking since yesterday though and found the most common specs for weight for our 6th gen cars. Bike injectors seem to have better atomization properties multi-hole type and bumping up the pressure helps with atomization also. Edit: Or maybe I'm misreading. All four engines are weak on low-end torque, lacking in zest.
Trouble Spots Air conditioner Description: If the air-conditioner belt repeatedly comes off, the splash shield under the engine is probably knocking it off when the car goes over a parking curb, etc. Also, it seems that you've pretty much answered my boost questions, or at least set me in the right direction. Front and rear diffusers and a grill block can really cut down the cd of a car. Injectors shouldn't be too expensive, I wouldn't think. The D15Z1 engine was considered revolutionary for its day. However, the goal would be to try and get the engine under boost at the low end.
