    All I have to say is HELL YEAH! Besides the EXTREME volume of the motor with open header, the 40 mile drive home was great. Pulls hard as hell when vtec kicks in. I didn't take the car up to 5k rpm on the interstate. Didn't even remember it redlines at 8500. (I've got a EX cluster in there for now.) Holy shit!!! I Was on a back road trying to avoid major traffic and punched it in second and shifted to third and the tires started spinning!
    I just have to make it quiet. There's no way I'm going to be able to keep it off the streets now.
    I need expert advice on what exhaust to get. I don't want to lose power. Thats all I care about.
    Anyway, let me know if you guys have ANY questions about the swap. I'll update my sig and let all of you know what's in there.

    THANK YOU GUYS AND GIRLS SOOOOO MUCH! I am 100% happy with my investment. I would have still been pondering who to buy the motor from if it wasn't for your help. Thanks again and if there is ever anything I can offer, feel free to ask.
    *need a place to stay in the St. Louis metro area? Drop by!*
    Anyway, I'll be posting a lot more soon.

    I mean quick compared to my company car which is a 04 beetle 2.0L. But its a lot quicker than the DX was. I love those motor mounts...didn't think I'd be able to tell, but you can...stiff is goooood! And it took me exactly 3 months to get it done...well...running. Not too bad. Now off to the track!

    congrats .... glad to hear you are happy with it :)

    for the exhaust it really depends what you are looking for ... if you want something relativly quiet with a good tone that still flows VERY well i suggest the Tanabe HM (i have it on my ITR swapped sol and i love it)

    if you dont care about the sound level then i recomend the tanabe RM (its loud as hell though)

    So all of those have good flow...thanks...I'll play around with the idea and pick one this week.
    As for Vtec, where should I set it. Mine is like close to 5k. Should it be lower? Don't really know and I didn't hit it much on my way home, but it seemed kinda hi for the feel of the motor. And what controler should Iget for that?

    mine is at 5600

    get it on a dyno and tune it

    VAFC will work
    Hondata is better (if you have a place that tunes them)


    *** oops 5600 not 4600 ***

    which hondata? and why that over the others? will hondata work with my p73 ecu? And is it better to be able to change your vtec point for driving conditions?

    LOL Now we've gone and done it!!! I'm on a question asking roll! I've got soooo many more. Like this...
    How can I wire my laptop to my ecu so I can control and monitor my car? And how do you make it so when your going fast the floor comes out and you yell at the laptop for beeping at you?
    But seriously...can I use a laptop for controling things like vtec and fuel/air and to monitor temp?

    WoooWoooooo

    Any straight through muffler is going to yeild more power than a quiet one with a fat resonator.
