I think it would be a fun project car as long as the Honda rust doesn't go nuts, it apparently has two small spots on it, will see tomorrow, it is low mileage for the age I guess.
I've done the timing belt 2 times on my B series. I have the crank tool to help remove the bolt if you need to borrow it. Follow the directions in the FSM and you'll do fine. For an 18 yr old car, that's pretty low mileage.

can't wait to see the pix.

Don't forget the water pump while you're at it.

Yup, and given the condition of the old coolant a new water pump is a must.

I've got the car in a perfect state of tune, quite impressed with the engine, much more torquey than I expected. My last B-series was a Civic SiR which did not have any torque at all. The B18c1 isn't too shabby. I rather like the 2 stage intake manifold though it gets some criticism about top end restriction, but with a 4500 vtec point and 5800 manifold runner switch point it works pretty smooth. Handling upgrades to be completed soon - lowering springs, adjustable shocks, 24 mm rear sway bar and reinforcement plate with new tires should round it off nicely.

Be interesting how you deal with bump steer if lowering,my track rods are far from parallel,and fitting subframe collars do not help my issue, angled tie rods are limited for after market bump correction, looks good low but care is needed while spirited driving.

I know , I know, Appearance is not the greatest right now, I ground down the rust spots and sprayed them with rust converter to temporarily protect the areas, so it looks worse than it is. Rear bumper is still off, front bumper going on this weekend. I just replaced two front engine mounts this evening. The sunroof is off as I wait to wrap the roof in black vinyl. And I haven't posted a pic here since the format changed, so I never looked into it further. The entire body is covered in finger prints from excess rustproofing I've been doing, so it really isn't picture ready. lol. Hopefully soon.

You know I've never been one for heavily lowered cars, I resisted it on the S2000 for most of it's life. For the Integra I am using H&R OE Sport springs, very mild drop of .75 inches, about the smallest drop of any aftermarket springs. I'd like to avoid bumpsteer at all costs if I can. Thanks for the note on this, I'll see how it works once it is all put together.
