    Re: before, and after,well in progress

    thanks cheese. I'll get more picks as i progress.
    the hybrid vs a straight t3, The differance is crazy!
    the t-3 pulled hard from start to finnish at 12.5psi.
    the hybrid was alittle laggie but when it came under full boost(@4500rpm) the car would straight come un-glue'd! the power differance was crazy.

    I am looking for 4+ball's on the dyno. we'll see or blow it up tryin.
    un-motivated!
    someone make me an offer i just could not say no to.

    well there isnt much to say on this mod except for it was easy and the price wasnt too bad.
    i paid $125 for the machine work.
    too tell you the truth i got frustrated with the honda dist..
    the dist. would'nt talk to the commander.
    soo i had a ford dist. sittin around it had plenty of meat on it and it looked like it would be a good match.
    i went to burts machine and told them i needed the base of the ford to mirror the honda 2 days later it was a perfect match.
    the old a20 fired up right off.
    just think of the possibilities.....svo ecu swap. other options such as mass air and tunner software.

    Re: before, and after,well in progress

    how do you have that lil radiator on there. and are you afraid of the support not being there because you cut that top part of the engine bay where the hood latches to?

    Re: before, and after,well in progress

    So no DIY info on getting that dis to fit... what car is it from?


    Is the clearance between the cam bearing and the distributor that tight that it doesn't need any screws to hold it in place?

    Re: before, and after,well in progress

    the radiator is mounted on 3 points for now and the support isn't there because these are progressive pic's i have'nt modified and installed it yet.
    by the way its a bolt on peice not a cut out peice.

    a20 there is not alote to tell...this part of the project you need to take it to a machinest.
    all you have to do is tell them to match the honda dist from the base out to the cam key.remove the key and mill the ford shaft to fit the key.
    make sure they have the cap and rotor of both so they can clock the key correctly. pay close attention to the cam key it is slightly off center to only fit one way.
    a few years ago i turbo'ed the first ford tempo with the 2.3 hsc ohv and made about 250 hp to the wheels and is still currntly the worlds fastest :LOL: . i then bought my accord and took alote of The part's i had and built a turbo accord. this dist is from a 86 ford tempo, but you can also use parts from a svo mustang, hsc mustang,thunderbird turbo coupe and a ranger.
    i am not good at write up's so i hope this will do.

    Re: before, and after,well in progress

    she's at the ideling stage of tunning, and I am still putting her back together.
    I am waiting for servion to get back from las vegas to street tune then dyno tune.
    i am using the holley commander 950 standalone and yea i had to make a harness for the altonator and starter wire.
    I am guessing that what you are asking me is if i am using a ford ecu, no.
    but it isn't that hard to pull a ecu and harness from a ford and adapt it to the honda.
    it's just wires and sensors.

    wow, 10.5:1 compression on a turbo set-up? that sounds like some good power is going to be produced right there.
