SolReaver,
I noticed this post, I added DelSol under Honda. I am moving this post from Nonspecific to DelSol.
Thanks bud

I also think that DelSols are very good cars, I don't understand how I forgot to list it under Honda before....
They look pretty nice:



oh, BTW, welcome SolReaver!!

Arrow Nice pics, Igor

Those are a couple handsome pictures of that Del Sol. I think they're pretty nice-looking, though they're not my cup of tea as I like coupes or small sedans, not convertibles. I certainly would take one over most cars on the road. But if I HAD to get a Honda convertible: S2000.

Technicaly it's not a convertible. It's a targo top thats what makes it so heavey.

As a High school insomniac who loved DelSols I spent countless sleepless nights looking at Delsols on the net. Well, I once found a place that made a replacement glass top! It looked awesome.

Hey, doesn't the VTEC run with the B16A?

There's a del sol near where I live that's got a Twin Turbo! I've heard it's fast...and I believe it.

yeah, I know that the B16A has VTEC, but I was wondering if that is the engine that is the VTEC del sol?

Yes, that as well. There was a version of the B16A (the B16A3) available in the 1994 to 1997 Civic Del Sol VTEC/Vti-T in the US and Europe making 158 ps (I forget the exact conversion, but this is something in the range of 155 to 160 horsepower - probably 160).

280ps = 276hp
158ps should = someting less than 158, probably 156 or 155
