Nice swap. Real clean.

I like the black valve cover. I put a black one on my K20A too.

Thanks for the kind words!

Just stopped doing the wiring on the drivers side. I just need to extend 2 more plugs. Ran out of rosin. Will finish tomorrow.

Ran and extended the wiper plug.





Still waiting on the remaining parts to come in.

Awesome work so far! I love how the wireworx harness goes into the cabin. Nice job on the wire tuck as well. Sorry if I missed it, but what loom is that?

I think you are referring to the wiper plug. That's just some braided loom I got on eBay. It's nothing special. On the fenders I used your walmart special cuz I'm broke!!

No updates tonight. Got to get up early for a weekly meeting.

Sorry, that is what I was referring to. Any reason why you used the braided loom there and regular loom for the fenders?

In for updates!

I used it because it was easier to route it down the fender.

Checked my lighting make sure it works. My wire tucking paid off!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iJFyw-tHx4k

Installed my K-Tuned heater hoses.





Installed my charge harness.








Installed my custom 3" exhaust with vband connections.






K-Tuned shifter and Race cables in place.




AEM gauges in place.



Custom Griffin radiator installed with 16 AN fittings.











Front suspension installed. Insane shaft axles in place. Bled the clutch and brakes.



And then it happened. 1 yr long project since nov 2012

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8y_VowSqk1c&sns=em



I have 4 grounds that I used. Alternator, trans, engine harness and timing cover. No check engine lights!!! I am currently using just the AEM wideband only even though I have a brand new type S o2 sensor.

I need to change the belt because it's making a noise and probably tune in January. It has to wait because I quit my job and hoping to survive this holiday with a new job.

Questions. Ktuned tps sensor I didn't even look at it. It idles at 1000. How do I adjust?

How do I adjust the fan? It doesn't kick on till 200 degrees.

I was bleeding the radiator with the heat in full blast. 20 mins later it's not blowing heat. Any help is appreciated!!

Real nice man..that bay look so sweet. That moment when you hear the engine start is sweet huh?..big ups!!!


The K-tuned tps will need to be calibrated in K-pro...make sure it reads 0% at closed throttle and 100% at WOT. You have a option to read in the TPS.

The idle you can adjust in K-pro also...look for the tab in the parameters section and move the slide left or right to adjust your idle, you can also enter a rpm number to regulate the idle...dont forget to upload your changes. Perhaps you need to adjust your idle screw also

Im not sure how you installed your fan, but if your not using the fanswitch then K-pro will kick your fan on at the temperature that is entered in the protection tab under parameters...i think that the standard value is 195 Fahrenheit. If you did wire-up the oem fan switch then i think it will kick in around 170 degrees...So i think youre using K-pro to let the fan run, sincs you said it kicks in at 200. You can enter a lower value if desired.


You're using a bigger rad., so it wil take some time to get the water hotter.
But im not exactly sure how you bled your radiator, but bleeding a radiator isn't somehting to think light about...You really have to make sure you bled it good...i preffer lifting the radiator up or jacking the front off the car a good amount up and then filling the rad not to fast. I even squeeze the hoses to let airbubbles out.
So not bleeding correct could be a issue, but you will notice heat spots on your radiator and thermostaat housing etc.

Another issue why your not blowing heat is that your thermostat is not working and staying open. Especially when driving you will notice that your temp stays low. Wat does your temp. gauge say? Make sure that your engine cooling control is working proper..Or you also may have some issue to get your car tuned and in worse case your engine screwed up

R-civic thanks for taking time to comment and suggestions!!! It was a big sigh of relief! Sound of the motor and exhaust is amazing.

TPS it reads 85% at wot. In K-Pro

Temp sensor and fan switch is all integrated with my Wireworx harness. On my Wireworx conv harness I didn't wire the ect, fan and charge light assuming from their instructions to skip that step. Not totally sure if I'm reading it right. I texted Xavier at Wireworx and he seemed busy.

Cooling issue I will try bleeding it front end raised up. I actually haven't worked on it since I started it. I'll keep posted and I'm sure it's something simple.
My temp reads about almost half way hot. ALMOST! It stays there.

Again many thanks for your help R-Civic!!!

No problem man, its just some tips to check.

Unbolten the 2 bolts on the tps slightly...then move it minimal to the right or left. And see wich reading you get, and keep working with it untill you read 100% at wot.
Or you can scale it in, in the knock/tps tab...but you'll have to be a little familiar with K-pro. By your text i assume your not that familiar.

try the help index in K-pro...

Try to lower the value in the protection tab in K-pro, under parameters if you think your temperatur is to high....It should work.
Im running wireworx harnas myself without a fanswitch! K-pro is controlling my fan. i lowered the the temperature a bit

So you're gauge shows the normal temperature value for a running engine on temperature. half or just under half is normal.
But your blowing cold air you say? Are you sure you mounted the heater valve correctly? Are you sure its open, when turning on the blower? Otherwise a bad thermostat, i had a bad thermostat coming with my brand new K-tuned swivelneck...bought a new OEM thermostat



Hope you solve your issue's...and get that mofo tuned!...im watching
