I did try running the motor without the vacuum line. Once the motor warmed up, the idle was lumpy...it revved high, then it'd rev low....it keep doing that until I gave it gas. I played with the idle setting on the K-pro. No matter what I did, it stayed lumpy.

I ended up setting idle at 750rpm and kept the vacuum line attached. Now all I have is smooth and quiet idle (it's open header, so you figure what quiet idle is).

Clearance on the TSX header seemed like it was going to be bad. However, they sit about 1/4" to 1/2" higher than the oil pan with the HASPORT mounts on the K20.

Yup, there is still PS and AC hooked up. When we mocked up the hood, it seemed to clear. Keep in mind that I have the rear of the hood mounted on some washer that allow for the hood to sit about 1/8" higher at the trailing edge. This should help two fold:
1. The angle at which the hood sits at, helps clear the PS pulley (keep in mind the difference in the front with the JDM light setup).
2. The raised back should help alleviate heat build up at the header.

^ SWEET... nice work i likes the A/C !!! must be nice!
We'll see when summer hits. Right now in Chicago, it's cold as fawk. No need for a/c. I need to get the freon (or whatever the hippes want us to use these days) filled into the system. Hopefully there's no leaks or anything because as cold as it gets here, it gets just as hot; which is a damn good reason to get out of the Chicago area....our weather swings to both extremes.

Very nice. what is your best time?

Anywhere from high 1:40's to the very low 2:00's at Gingerman raceway, in my S2000.

The last time I went down the 1320, I was driving my juiced Prelude. I pulled off a 13.9 and still lost to a little red Civic coupe, who was also juicing. (This had to have been back in 1998). Actually that was my fastest I've ever driven at a timed event and was ecstatic about it, but at the same time still bummed that the red Civic tail was in my line of sight as I crossed the time line; I then immediately turned to show cars and hot rods.

I got the Integ to be my daily driver....a fun one. The K swap only was to ensure the longevity of the car, power when I need it, great gas sipping everyday, and iVTEC when someone wants to act like an ass when I need to get in their lane!

As you all get to know me here, you'll come to realize that I won't/don't brag about any street adventures (it's highly illegal, and a highly liable offense...I work for a major Fortune 20 insurance company). Not only is my reputation at stake with my employer, but so is my job. So in the mean time, "I'm in Good Hands."

Not the best pic....but this weekend I will get around to install the first few layers of security (kill and ignition ghost switching), as well as get a chance to clean her up.

Bringing this post back from the dead....only because I just picked up my DC4 with the new look.

I wanted to wait until I got the MF10's on and the interior put back in. Also, there are no engine bay pics until I clean it up. Here she sits as of now:
