    Re: Frantik's Green Monster - Past, Present & Future

    So in news about my ride and life in general here a update.
    Firstly Tuesday afternoon wife gave birth to are second child a baby girl name Salem Ivy 6lbs 14oz.

    The first two photos are of my water pipe delete/replacement to a bung fitting. I have trim the obd1 dizzy plate to fit the new fitting but what had to be had to be done and now no more water pipe for me.

    Next well since I had the head off the block for the water pipe fitting I decided I would polish the valves because way not. Now I just have to lap them before I put the head back on the block and begin closing everything up and getting the motor ready to mate with the finished a2b swap plate and all the wiring goodies I have.

    Now that's out of the way I went to the jy last weekend because a 5 speed crv came in near me to get some parts there were missing from my trans like the clutch release fork but no luck. However I was about to pick up a exedy stage 1 clutch kit and Flywheel, starter, spare transfer case, spare shifter with cables. I've gone head and oreder for the rest of the parts need to complete my trans so I can move forward with my a2b swap. The 6th photo is of a clutch cable bracket that is needed for awd b series transmissions cable to hydro conversion kit made by a good friend Dana aka youngstatic(on YT). He's the only person that makes them and it's a major part of my a2b swap setup.the phot is a raw bracket but I'll pick up my finish one Sunday at the local ef vs da meet down the street from the house.

    Thanks all I got for now enjoy.

    Lol yeah just a little but the next step is complete I just haven't posted it yet. Mainly because it's not easy to post videos here and I'm in emt school right now on top of everything else I got going on. But these sum things up. Shift is mounted, cable's are ran, starter is installed, hydro awd clutch cable bracket is installed, valve are polished and lapped head is resembled and ready to put on the Block. So yeah a lot has been done. Just need to get the remaining fittings for the radiator/cooling system/oil turbo stuff and then take the car to a specialist to have a halfshaft mount made for the a2b swap. But yeah gusse ypu can say I'm making good head way

    Things are heating. I got all the fittings for the -10 catch can and 10 feet of hose(I'm sure I'll need more hose). I also got most of the -16 fittings needed for the radiator. Just need a bung to show up and the -16 hose. Got the love next day delivery from a local supplier

    Right but that the 3geez community for you and why it's the best of all the honda groups lol just text me and I'll load them up on my way to work

    Yeah I got a going on with the car these days. New wirring, turbo, built motor, a2b plate and more. The awd isn't gonna be 100% for a while because the initial intint is to use a b series transmissions it just so happens that the awd crv Transmission fit in the can with the a2b plate the best and with the least amount of modifications to the chassis to make it work. The bright said of use the awd crv Transmission is the is opened the possibility for awd in the future as well and all the aftermarket support available for the transmission
