I originally did a full JDM EF9 conversion on a 1990 Civic Si that I finished back in 2003. After years of tinkering and swapping engines, I ended up selling to a guy from east coast Canada in July 2010. After seven months of driving my Mitsubishi 3000GT, I got the itch for another build. I picked up an 89' DX for a daily driver and sold my Mitsu with the intention of doing a 1989 Civic Si Restore.
After a month of searching I finally found a very clean 1989 white Si. The engine needed work but the body and interior were in great shape. The car was about 3 hours away in the snow so I rented a U-Haul trailer and set out on an adventure with my girlfriend.
My plans for this project are opposite of most. I intend to keep the car 100% stock and USDM. Enjoy my progress.
The 1989 Civic Si is a ONE YEAR ONLY CAR. Although it's the second generation of Civic Si, it is the first year of the 4th generation civic's. There are lots of small differences between the 89' si and the 90-91 si. That is why I picked it.
