    • Went out to my first track day since Turbo. It was a cheap one, $100 for the day. I only meant it to be a shakedown, but man is this thing a hoot! The issues I found were the ARP stainless nuts (or some titanium ones, so I was told) 4 of the 9 came off the exhaust manifold. And the tube to the wastegate came loose. I found some spare nuts and bolted those down then drove it home after 2 sessions. There are 2 nuts that I have no idea how they got on, being 12pt and the stud is directly against, or damn close to, something else. I'll be sacrificing a 10mm wrench with the 12 pt on the end to hope I can get at these things. To hopefully solve the problem, I'm going to put some of these stage 8 bolts on. You basically bend that triangle around the manifold or against a tube. That's what the folks at inline recommended, so worth a shot. Grabbed some copper nuts just in case as well.

      The entire ride there the car stayed in the 165 range temp wise. It was a cool day. In the second session the car got up to 180 ish, but that's that. Being that this is Texas and the car will be driven in the summer, will probably start with a better fan than the ebay man. It has an ebay radiator, turbo is water cooled, mishimoto themostat and mishimoto matching fan switch. In case it hasn't been said before, do not do those two mods separately. You'll over work the fan or not cool the coolant enough before the thermostat is wide open.

      We also noticed while doing the alignment that the passenger axle was dorked up. Self inflected wound from a friend 'pulling' the axle out of the tranny there. $40 part, in stock at Autozone. Lifetime warranty. Gotta love mid-nineties hondas. The alignment I used this time was 3.1* camber in the front and 2.7/2.1 in the rear. (Not sure why off, but will be looking for a kit soon) Ran a little bit of toe in by recommendation of the alignment specialist. He said it would help with the torque steer. I think I may zero that or go a little out, but it did help alot with torque steer. The rear swaybar (ASR hollow kit) is fantastic. The car feels very hooked up. Can't wait until the next one!

      And some more information: That tablet was great. I'd probably need to adjust it so it's more visible, but it works really good! Previously I didn't have a speedometer, but now I do and it's just as accurate as my phone's GPS. Hoping to get a better mount designed and then see about making more.

      • I guess I never posted my dyno either. It's not much, but for a B20, here's hoping it's pretty reliable.

        • Looks like a TON of power to me! I'm used to a 200hp B18c.
