I've been around for awhile :D But this is my actual 1st post I believe :)
I built my wife a '76 civic convertible back in '96... the car was a blast.. a little peppy 1.2 with mods :lol: it was a rust bucket at the time, but she loved it.. flashforward to '99. We found a rust free '76 hondamatic trunk model (we are now the 2nd owner) The car remained bone stock for all of 6 months.. We flew out to NZ to see my parents, I spent a many a day at strong for honda (wreckers) sifting thru parts. I ended up coming back to Canada with a ER Turbo II complete conversion for her '76 civic.. and thats when I went to town.. The roof came off the civic, the ER turbo went in.. the 1st convertible turned into a trailer.. and the rest was history..flashforward 10 years. We have gone thru 2 turbo's and 1 block.. I've had enough of it.. trying to locate parts for a JDM only motor was not worth it anymore... I pulled the ER and rebuilt the engine bay so I could stuff a D16Z6 from a '95 Si with the tried and true JRSC.. here's looking forward to another 10 years of fun!

The ER was rated for 110hp at 12psi.. I ran it upto 17.. with a free flowing exhaust.. I would estimate around 125-130

Very nice! I have two copies of the super street magazine that has your wagon and this convertible! I remember how excited I was to see something of this caliber in a magazine like that!!
