    CRX EF8 front end on 4drs EF really cun!

    Last time a friend got them on his 4dr, really nice. With pearl black it'll look more garang :lol:

    I'm still searching for the small grill look-alike from EF9 model(dunno what it's called, the small piece above front bumper), already found bonet and headlamps so far. EF9 front bumper already on my car.... also have EF9 rear bonet :lol:

    BTW... your B16A is from what model? I wonder which mounting kaki should be modified. Tomorrow my mechanic will do the mounting job. BTW ... it's from integra DA8 model small-V. Wonder can use DA8 driveshaft or not ;)

    About the EF8 front end on 4drs EF .... all u need is
    - EF8 fenders
    - EF8 headlights and cornerlights
    - EF8 hood (I think its same with EF9 also ... coz both SiR)
    - EF8 bumper with the small piece on it dunno what it's called.. let's just say the 'grill' :lol:

    Everything's bolt-on. But u need to modify the bonet pin & hook.

    EF9 is the SiR model ... pretty much like comparing local assembled EG with EG9

    However, EF9 only available for hatchback model. The front end is different, sharper headlights shape, long bumper signal lights. Hood design also a bit different.

    example of original spec EF9 B)

    I've bought a DA8 auto halfcut (small V) for RM3,000... and that's the cheapest I can find in my area. Labour work my mechanic said around RM1,+++ ... cannot confirm yet.

    Soulfly, thanx for the great info! really appreciate dat.

    btw, my engine i took from crx EF8 small v.....(should've taken the whole front end oso lar).......sighz, anyway it was 2 yrs ago liao... <_<
    hope u get wat u looking for ler........

    oh, for my engine, only the gearbox mounting hav 2 move a bit.....then the left side engine mount need 2 'expand' a bit.......


    some questions:
    - the 'small piece' - is dat the piece of metal between bonnet n bumper?
    - the bonnet pin n hook - is it easy or very diff 2 mod?
    - the pricing? do u trade off ur original front end or jz keep at home?

    thanx again! ;)

    Put 'Super Special' - I'm not sure about the name - body part is also nice ( 1 piece headlamp & corner lamp model ).

    There are few EF groups .... Selayang, Malawati & Wangsa Maju ones .
    Can check out/hang out with these guys. Pretty big groups.

    Anybody found interesting item for CRX during your chop shop trip, can let me know as there are 30 members in the CRX team , surely got someone might want it.

    Cheers

    1 questions:
    is there any differences (in term of suspension / under carriage stuff) between JDM 4th Gen with US Spec :unsure: ? coz i'm thinking of buying PU bushes kit directly from State

    'Super Extra' is the facelift for 4G 4drs year 90-91 right?

    the small piece... yes, that's what i'm talking about

    the bonet pin & hook just need slight modify to make the hood close ngam-ngam

    i got the hood for RM200, bumper for RM150, headlight not yet because i decided to trade in with my old ef2 headlights, but i already ask the chop shop tauke to reserve a pair for me, there were plenty of 'em :D

    About the differences between JDM and USDM spec... I'm not so sure, quite confusing also.

    Why don't u get one from Aus? Super Pro Bushes made of PU also right?

    Seriously, I think CRX EF8 bumper wont look nice on other EF, let them be put on CRX only, it'll spoils the other EF unique look.
    As for bushings, actually 2 months back, before I changed my whole car bushing & engine mounts, I enquired Super Pro & Energy suspension directly for the application for my car. No reply from both , so fark them .... and I replaced all with Honda OEM.

    Let me know if you get the contact for Super Pro & Energy Suspension bushing set.

    P/s Mugen set will set you back about RM3K++

    TQ
