Question on my MiniMe setup... How should I do it? I've heard of three ways:
1. RPM switch (cheap, doesn't sound reliable)
2. VTEC Controller (Sounds good, but also sound like it has limitations, i.e. fuel and timing)
3. P28 ECU from a 92-95 Civic EX/Si (Sounds very OEM and reliable, with benifit of plug and play and increased redline. Also from same vehicle the z6 head comes from...)
I've bought a z6 head from toxiclows, and want to do this install right with minimal hicups. OEM reliability/usability would be great. Although I've read two MiniMe swap articles,
(For a Z6 head onto a D16A6 block which said nothing about a controller/ecu or OBD1)
(For a Z6 head onto a D15B7 block which said to go with the P28 ecu, but touched on Controllers)
(Has a basic wiring picture for a VTEC setup, not sure if it is compatible)
I would like to get some feedback from the Community, as advice from people who know stuff to a kid who wants to learn. The right
The head will be looked at by a machine shop when I get it, a valve job done, new seals, and probably valves. I'll do a waterpump, timingbelt and any other changes the same time as the head, with a D16Z6 timing belt and a D16Y8 headgasket. The motor has 185k miles on it, with decent (avg of 180 psi) compression, so I might be able to wait on rings and/or pistons. I plan on doing all of this during winter break as I am away from my daddy's nice garage right now, and after I have saved a bit of money.
Everyone's thoughts/personal experiance on going about this setup? Money hopefully won't be that big of an issue, I have a few months to save up. When I do this, I'll be sure to take lots of pictures and do a nice writeup.
Sorry for the long, long post, but I want your feedback! Thanks in advance.
