    Not sure. That's my H22 ALT and the ESP instructions said to use a D-series alt. But I ordered a D series ALT 92-95 and it didn't fit at all! So I'm going to check with ESP guy to see what he says. All the pictures and articles on the topic picture a H22 ALT. Not sure why it mentioned to use a D-series ALT, no-one ever spoke of the reasoning. If that idea fails then I'll keep this setup. I'm going to put heat wrap around the exhaust anyways...

    I stared at this pic for a while today too. And my initial thought was to go green again on the VC. But with the Skunk2 intake, and turbo being silver, this silver VC is addicting to look at and blends so well with everything else. Funny thing is that i just sanded it (it was orange), and threw it on there with the idea that I would paint it later. It almost looks ghostly...

      With black shading in the right spots to give it some shadows, it would look ghostly. Airbrush style.

          ya, after talking to the ESP guy, I found out today that with the ESP ALT relocation kit which I am using, you must have a 89-91 D series civic or CRX ALT to use with the kit if the H22 will not fit/work with your combo. This is not documented anywhere! 92+ ALT will not work...

          BUT the 91 civic/CRX ALT only comes in a 60AMP output . Ya.. BS right. So that won't do at all! So one would have to have the ALT rewired for 90AMP + to use this kit at all or simply use the H22 ALT.

          As you can see from mine, the D series would put the plug in a different spot (up top) which would help a lot.

          91 D-series ALT

            Taken straight from the site:

            The H22A/F22/F23 Alternator/Tensioner kit is for either the H or D series alternators on the H22A/F22/F23 engine. Just switching the factory bracket out will drop a few lbs. and our kit hugs the engine more. Ideal for motor swaps with no room. Also looks better then the bulky factory cast iron piece. The D series alternator is smaller and lighter, smaller pulley, smaller belt, 3 ribbed instead of 6 has less drag and should free up some ponies. If using D series Alternator must be from 88-91 Civic/Crx/Wagon/Sedan has 3 ribbed belt and pulley 92+ have different spacing and is 4 ribbed. 92+ wont work. From switching the H22A alternator and factory bracket to our kit and the D series alternator there is about 6 lbs in weight savings. Our kits come complete with bolts, nuts, washers and detailed instructions.

            I'm using the evolution bracket, d series alternator
            Does just fine!!

              But i see it here now under this page. http://www.explicitspeedperformance.net/ESPHFALT.html
              I just thought the ALT tension kit was different than the ALT relocation bracket kit.

              oh well, my bad.

                    Thanks. More updates everyday, ....... like this one.

                    Done = rad hose, mounts, charge piping, PS, and other small things, about to fire it up soon.




                    Left to do: coolant lines to turbo, tune, turbo inlet filter, DIY windshield washer reservoir, heat wrap, catch can drain, alignment, and other small items.

                        I'm getting anxious! I cannot wait until you get this beast fired up... I hope you plan on taking some videos.

                          I'll see what i can do for the video. The tuner wants to go-pro the car so maybe I'll see if i can use this as I don't have a very good video camera except for my phone.
