    Track Build - Cindi

    I'll edit this as I go, but this is day 1. I have a b17a1 with a bad piston. Very small nick. I have the original YS1 or whatever tranny. Installed is a B18B1 with a B16 transmission. (I don't know the real terminology, sorry) Cam with some shitty MSD ignition that needs reinstalled. The valve cover is off and the timing belt is loose. I haven't torn into yet.

    What it has...
    • RS-R exhaust
    • Goodridge brake lines
    • Koni Yellows
    • Some random intake
    • 3 intake manifolds, I don't even know...
    • Full gasket sets
    • Skunk2 or knock off type r shift knob
    • fancy speakers
    • Battery in trunk... looks like shit

    Ordered and not install
    • Open Ended Lug Nuts (car came with a total of 14, and that aint right)
    • ARP Extended Studs (I don't trust 20+ year old bolts on the track...)


    More to come! If you know anyone who needs DB2 parts, point them to me!

    Updates: 12.16.14 The mess I'm dealing with and the car's new/finished home and cell mate...

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

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

    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.

    It's an app called TuneLogs. Very intuitive! This is connected via bluetooth to the S300. You can drag and drop all the stuff around, show what's important to you. Have multiple dashboards. So I might want one for the streets, and another for the track that's just a huge friggin tach and maybe some other gauges smaller that I can look at occasionally, There's a little bit of lag, but it's not earth shattering.

    Nice, what digital gauge is that? Or is it part of an engine management system?

    Pretty sure I've had a pin hole on the ebay radiator since one of my off's back whenever I used to track this thing... Tried putting a second fan on as a pusher on the driver side, but the leak showed up. Bought another ebay radiator because the options aren't really good for our cars. I'll be using one of the shrouds this time around. Need to bleed brakes, maybe change gear oil if I have time.
    Signed up for a track day in January, so the heat is on to get this baby done.
    Also did this. It's just a prototype, will likely end up being 3D printed and more robust.

    Tried responding to your other post but the forums won't let me. Would you mind shooting me a message at my username here, at gmail?

    I wrote a long ass response and the forums cut off my response using the mobile. Anyways, yes. It looks weird to me too. That pic is with the wheels off the ground on the lift. I think I may have swapped the arms on the bar. Right now, they bow out. Could bow in and hopefully straighten out the end links. Will give that a go.
    Obviously, exhaust becomes tricky with this setup.

    I've always been intrigued by those bars. I just recently installed an Eibach ITR bar + ASR brace on mine. Only one autoX so far with that setup but so far I think it's a little more aggressive than my old Progress bar.

    Is that 2nd pic with the suspension at full droop? Have you looked to see what the endlink angles are like when the suspension is loaded and/or compressed? I don't have the experience to back it up but that angle just looks odd to me.

    ASR Hollow Swaybar installed. I purchased this at the beginning of the year when ebay was doing a 20% off coupon, pre-boost-plans. Figured I'd install it while I'm waiting on the "Car Fund" to be replenished...
