    Re: I have decided!!!!!!

    Nah dude im 100% serious im starting it tomorrow. im getting the junk block out and getting rid out the powersteering stuff. then prepping the bay and waiting for the mounts while i do a little work to the GSR. If anyone is in need some the A/C, P/S, or any other engine parts let me know. The tranny is perfect. Just grinded going into 3rd above 5,000 rpm.

    Im hoping twoloud gets the mounts soon.

    Im also selling a yamaha ttr225 4 stroke dirtbike. bought it new title in hand runs great very fast. And a badass gaming computer. PM me if interested.

    it's the thing that screws into the back of the manifold with three rubber hoses going to it, there are two of them,one has two hoses and one has three,they are right next to each other. dummy here broke the only good one he had. i think they weigh about 4 ounces. lol.

    yea there wasn't enough clearance under it when i screwed it into the water passage on the SU manifold, and the top popped off,have to move it to the thermostat housing,which means have to take it apart again and weld yet another piece on.

    i used to just shorten them by cutting a section out of the shift handle,above the ball,then welding it back on. the honda has such short throws anyway,it seemed to work well.

    Re: I have decided!!!!!!

    I got some pics im going to upload later. Getting this engine out without pulling the axles is a BITCH! But its almost there. Im gutting the harness and all. Im looking into RYWIRE.com. They have a thing called a mil-spec harness which is kinda like a universal b series harness. Its going to have a DA integra dash harness with a DC integra cluster. Im deciding on what engine. Either a
    Boosted B17. or a plain B18C1 (GSR). Im not 100% sure tho i might just wait on the turboness. Also i picked up the throttle and clutch cable for a DA teg for free and i might be getting some axles for free also Im really just waiting on the mounts. And my check. lol

    My drill is so fast.



    I wish i could just get rid of the fuse box but i need the rear defroster and shit. i might just cut the wires i dont need and leave the box there. Honestly i only care what the engine bay looks like now cos im going to keep it a straight sleeper when its done.

    I cut 5mm above and 3mm undrer the ball and weld it together.. works fine and has really little trowel.. Now thinking about shortening the clutch pedal.. its like half a mile long for me, I was sold when I drove Audi S4 with short clutch.. I want one too..

    why? bend it..
    I say its easy to do, just cut out peaces at a slight angle for both cuts so you have alignment issue gone, when you going to weld it back together.
