    How is it not? I mean, it's a honda right?

    LOL, anyway, looks like your finished product is gonna be pretty bad ass.... good luck on the rebuild.

    I'm jealous you have the time and resources to do that.... i'd personally love to have the tools/time/money to do anything of that sort.

    Re: Jigabu's Engine Rebuild/Restoration Thread...

    oh yeah... Matter of fact....
    I'm gonna bore the block tomorrow...
    Hopefully I'll have time to balance my rods, pistons n crank tomorrow too...
    The only issue is that the rings haven't come in yet...

    Also I have a whole color scheme goin on here...
    The car was originally gonna be just black and white...
    But then I decided to incorporate my team (Unit S) color which is the blue...
    N The reason for the aluminum is because white wouldn't be good in the engine bay IMO, and black holds heat...

    A little bit. Use more metal colored paint for a less rice more mature look.

    Update: Engine: Jan032006

    Well I still haven't got any work done on the bottem end... Reason being...
    I'm a Dumb-Ass
    I didnt pressure test my head before I started workin on it... I got about 12hrs on the port job and found 2 cracks...
    Luckily I had the head from the second engine.. I took that to work and PT'd it before I cleand it.. Then after I cleaned it... N I'm gonna do it again when the p+p is done... Here is my progress so far...





    I just need to finsih the last 2 dish's n do some touch up sanding in the ports... Then hit it with the polishing ball...

    Are you going with stock valves, or are you considering going a lil' larger?

    Update: Body: Jan032006

    I haven't done much work on the body because of the incident with the head...
    However... I did finish some suspension work and some other stuff in the engine bay.. And I must apoligize... It happened completly accidentallly... but my spindle/brake area got a little ricey...





    I think it's because of the rotor/bearing/lug nut combination of colors... the rest don't look to bad to me... I'm gonna have new rotors and lug nuts when i put the rims on... N i won't paint either of them again... The only reason I did it on these rotors is cause they were rusted as shit from just sittin in the weather... N i just left the lug nutz on the spindle when I painted it...

    Update: overall Jan032006

    Well I ordered my Remaned Manual Rack the other day and that set me back 236.xx... So projected driving date has been pushed back... prolly mid to late feb...
    My wife got me a lightened flywheel for xmas n it just got here last week...

    I need to order my clutch and cam... and some other random poly-bushings I haven't got yet... Put it all together n thats that...
    I'm going to do the obd-1 swap n itbs after I get it runnin and moving.... I want to break the engine in before I do either... Cause I know I'll be drivin the piss outta it when there on...
    Are you going with stock valves, or are you considering going a lil' larger?
    No... I'm using stock vavles with a 5 angle valve job... I'm doin a lil somethin somethin for the springs though... I'm gonna test a couple different Ideas and some other springs I have around the shop n see what i can come up with...

    Remember man, our cams can take only so much extra stress with all the rotational force they put out.

    Re: Jigabu's Engine Rebuild/Restoration Thread...

    Are you going to use any standalone management?

    It'd suck to keep the stock ECU if you're going for a higher rpm rod.

    Re: Jigabu's Engine Rebuild/Restoration Thread...

    Thank u...

    But I"m so pissed right now... My rack came in today a day early.. yay...
    But it's a PS rack... Then I look at the recipt and see that the guy at auto zone ordered a ps rack so then i was hot... I went back up there and talk to this chick at the counter( who was kinda cute) and extremely nice, although not to bright (ok she made a few funny mistakes)... But anyway we looked it up on the cp n she went to the same screen the first guy did for manual rack n the part# match the one I had... So we check the ps # n it was the same one... so I was like WTF...
    So I ended up ordering a salvaged manual rack through their partner company and left the store feelin a little sketchy, but got some money back so that was a bonus...

    I typed the above before dinner

    Then...
    After I ate dinner, the phone rang... It ended up bein autozone's partner company... They called to verify the part and shipping address... I told the guy how I felt a little sketchy n he said all parts were quality checked n warranteed... So I was like hell yeah...
