    The time has come

    My accord finally runs once more! I got the built motor running and started the break in process. We only have 10 miles on it but soo far its pretty positive. I had a couple of vids but they are meh and from a cellphone, and for some reason they dont seem to be compatable with windows media player etc... sorry guys. Driving this car again, man, its incredible how raw this thing is. Think about it: solid motor mounts (rattles the fillings out of your head) heavy race clutch, no ps, no ac, 8lb flywheel, BIG TURBO... just unrefined right now.

    Anyway, heres the setup and component list

    Built Race ported head
    Golden eagle cam gear
    Si industries valves/retainers/springs
    Bullfrog cam
    AEBS Typhoon B16 intake mani with ITR TB
    2.5" Charge piping with 1G dsm bov
    JRC 8" FMIC
    Diamond Forged pistons
    Eagle H beam rods
    Toga Oil pump
    ARP head studs
    Stealthmodeperformance oil lines
    8lb aasco flywheel
    Clutchnet Dual diaphram 6 puck sprung race clutch
    Solid motor mounts
    3" Downpipe and 3" E cutout with the stock exhaust used in non bypass mode
    255lph intank walbro fuel pump
    Precision 880cc injectors
    GM 3 bar map sensor
    custom topmount turbo mani
    Precision SC6152 with S trim compressor (think GT35R)
    38mm tial external wastegate
    innovate LC-1 wideband 02 sensor
    Deka ETX14 battery
    90-91 accord distributor (internal coil) with adaptor kit
    92-95 Civic P06 ECU chipped
    triple core civic radiator with slimfan
    Mickey Thompson ET Street DOT Drag radials

    Soo far the only issues are easy fixes:

    no oil leaks but there is a small coolant leak near the head
    the shifter linkage feels sloppy
    the tune is only really a basemap, but safe afr soo far verified by the wideband, but it really needs to be tuned
    the back brakes are noisy and might need attention
    i need to make a permanent battery mount too

    We used a P75 bin from my friends boosted integra, and even with the conversions used in crome, we still needed to add fuel almost everywhere, even though we did the conversions for the bigger injectors and bigger engine, and the engine still doesnt like to idle after you rev it up...

    Ill see if i can get pics either tomorrow or sat










    Bonus: The view from the top of some 95 foot poles i had to climb a couple mos ago at work

    VIDEO
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Qh2LcSVa1Xk

    It sounds loud/rough because the E Cutout is open. It really isnt loud at idle and sounds much better in person

    Sorry for the meh pics, i gotta get my digicam working again, and maybe wash the car haha!

    Nice, can't wait to see what it does.

    One word of advice, beware of those Toga oil pumps. The gears break pretty easy, at least on the obd1/2 style pumps they do. I know these A series have a weird pump gear.

    Re: The time has come

    Hmm ill have to check that out about the oil pump. My oil pressures are really good right now though... 65+ psi and even at idle 20+ Psi warm... I do have a shimmed relief valve though...

    Awesome... Glad to see the car back up and running. Can't wait to see some proper vids, and what kind of power numbers and ET's you put down with the new setup.

    Re: The time has come

    Sorry guys, Ive been busy and havent been able to work on it. Right now im waiting for a crank pulley key, I lost my original one when the crank pulley came off (must not have been tight enough) a couple days ago. Plus I still need to fix my coolant leak. I am working on getting a dyno day together though...

    Re: The time has come

    Nice

    Glad to see you finally post up.


    Is that clutch stretable? Like Im stuck in traffic and wont have my leg fall off or break my neck?


    Coolant leak?

    do you have poly shifter bushings? cause ive been thinking about it cause shifting feels a little sloppy for me as well.

    Re: The time has come

    its streetable... werent you having problems with your clutchnet clutch? I have the dual diaphram 6 puck sprung, its not too bad really. No poly shifter bushings, mostly stock. I think the bushing on the actual shifter is messed up, im gonna have to see whats up with it. My back brakes are giving me issues too...

    edit:coolant leak should be fixed now, the pipe for the heater that goes into the head wasnt tight enough. My brake master cyl was full of junk, i think that might be causing my low pedal. Also my rear wheel cyl might be going bad too...

    Re: The time has come

    Yeah my clutchnet 6 puck sprung hub aint holding. I dont have a dual diaphram one though.

    On a side note the car was up on a lift today and the shifter bushings are junk on my car. theres a whole lot of play there. That might be your problem too.

    I replaced my shifter bushings with poly bushings last year when I did my short shifter. It made a world of difference in how the shifter feels.

    Re: The time has come

    I wish I had my own lift too Tim.

    Hashman it only comes with 2 bushings right?

    The bushings on mine are where the rod actually connects to the tranny where it has a 10mm bolt that goes from top to bottom.


    beware the pacesetter. I have it right now and it actually makes shifting a little hrder being tht its so light. Back in the day they use to keep em on the shelves though. lol (94-96)
