The D16Z6 engine is a great engine to build for turbo applications because of the following reasons:
- Z6 Oil Pumps are solid
- Ease of Tuning as it’s made for the OBD1 ECU
- Top end power is great for turbo builds

- P08 Cylinder Head with VTEC
Although It can handle up to 200-220HP in stock form if you go beyond this limit, it is advisable to upgrade the valve train, pistons and connecting rods. So if your gonna build a (SOHC) Single Over Head Cam engine, start with the best go with the D16Z6. They are found in 1992-1995 Honda Civic EX and Si models, and also the 1993-1995 Honda Delsol Si
I got an iPhone last Thursday and I’m really pleased with it with all the features it has. The 3G Internet is really quick, 8GB of storage is plenty for applications, music and movies and since my 1993 Honda Civic doesn’t have GPS, this little gadget is perfect for knowing where you are while cruising around the city. I was never really keen on Apple products but this iPhone is one of a kind and I will recommend it to all my friends.
The camera works really well and would be perfect for car shows just in case I forgot my Sony Cybershot. Having this phone with me all the time is gonna be perfect now as I can take pictures of any cool looking EG Civic’s on the road and later post them on my blog.
IPhone GPS + Honda Civic = Better cruising around the city.

Finding great resources can sometimes be really tricky specially when your looking for something really specific. I found this 62 page manual on the 1992-1995 Honda Civic transmission and thought I would share it with other EG (92-95) Civic enthusiasts that might need it for reference.
Step 21 - Support the tranny with an extra floor jack and then unbolt it.
Tools Needed: 17mm Deep Socket Wrench, Floor Jack, 2×4 Piece of wood.
Place a 2nd jack with a piece of 2×4 wood under the tranny. Then get your friend to grab a hold of the rope with some gloves. Once the tranny is supported you can start unbolting the lower front transmission mount using a 17mm socket wrench. Then Tell your friend to hold the rope tight and start unbolting the last 3 top engine mount bolts using a 17mm socket wrench.
