    If I had known it was a sub $40 part I would have replaced the big bastard when I yanked the engine. I say that though and I also forgot the rear main seal.

    New tires and wheels came in today, these are Work XSAs, 30 and 35mm offset (too little of a difference to care which wheel goes where, but the dishes are different) with 195/45r16 ATR Sports fresh off the boat from the motherland. Wow I really need to lower it now, I feel ashamed of my gap





    Oh my God does this car steer quick, caster is going to have to get cranked, it turns in so fast I can barely keep it between the lines, but its so much smoother than the 10 year old Hankooks that looked like they were about to kill me.

    Man I really need to get my ac recharged, this 100 weather with 110% humidity is a little much in this little untinted oven (fuck it, Im on break Im calling to get an appointment for tint too) I got es-12 to do it. tonight Im going to release the remaining freon into some balloons and pull the compressor that I didn't run without oil off the parts car and throw it on mine.

    Absolutely blows my mind what parts are still available for these cars. Techna-fit still carries steel brake lines, for almost any classic Honda for that matter, have some on the way. I'm also eyeballing that OBX header still listed on their site... but that will have to wait until I grab some ksport coils.

    Meanwhile you can't even buy upper control arms for a 2g lude, I guess youre just fucked if you bend one in an accident, and Im just fucked if I want adjustable camber. It seems like hell will freeze over before any yard listed on car-part.com will email you back too, been trying to get a vigor sway bar for months.

    I lucked out the 2g lude arms I got but I paid more than they're reasonably worth.
    Only ones I found after weeks of searching though so it is what it is.

    Where did you get yours? I think Im just going to have to keep emailing until someone from car-part.com replys and takes my damn money. Maybe I should hand my insurance man a little cash lol they might actually sell something to him.

    Re: 87 DX Sedan Project Log

    I will have to check then 🤔

    In other news, ac is working like a champ on es12 refrigerant and I installed an oil pressure gauge. Im actually extremely impressed with how well my oil pump is performing, makes pressure immediately after starting, 30 at idle under ac/electrical load ~600rpm, 40-60 at driving rpm, 80 when you give it the beans.

    Msd box is also shining again because Im 100% certain I couldn't get away with taking off and idling with the ac on without it lol

    Ebay was a good call because I found a set of prelude arms and the top hats shane86 recommended. I was going to lower it last weekend but I wasnt able to get it on the rack... kind of a good thing now because I can have all this done and get it aligned.
