I'm open to suggestions lol.
Top O' the morning to ya! I would suggest you get rid of your wife and kids? There a drag on your economy? How's this car ever gonna get done?
If the vtec was pulled back then your running some cams. Everything about this is fun. The brake pics didn't go through BTW. If it stops and locks...why F with it? I would venture to guess the abs was intentionaly disabled? Somebody went to a lot of effort to mod / improve (?) this car. Then they drove the piss out of it and sold it to you. it doesn't suck. It, just needs some love?
YOUR all up in that tranny. Hold firm at this dollar amount it should be butter? Silky smooth, along for the ride and cooperating with you and so should the shop......Your doing right in the fact that untill you know what you got, it's kinda hard to deal with it?
Good job on the stabilization of your idle! That's a biggy? Stick with the 68mm it's been proven that anymore than that will not get you much if anything except a soggy bottom end. When tuning this beast all out H.P numbers is not it. You want it driveable and fun? Bragging rights as to the latter won't do you much as to day to day? I'm vested in this as I am in the middle of a "high end" but resonable build. Mostly some added performance and dead ass reliable the way a Honda should be? I hydro locked my engine and I'm on a mission now. So there in lay's are vested interest? I know my car like the back of my hand. Your running it down and doing a good job of prioritizing. You must remain hands on so you don't lose the rabbit. Ask questions, give me answers, color is your choice. I almost bought a 92 camaro that had a purple that the hue almost looked black at night. It was a stock color but like "hunter green" or a double breasted suit it is what you want.
If it's not broke don't fix it. If it's not safe, you better. If it's not reliable I'd look at it twice as to how much trouble/cost it will give you later on. When your done with this one something tells me you will be on to the next. There's worse habits you could have. The more you do on your own the least it will cost. It seems like your on your 3rd build? Make some mistakes....Just not twice.
