I have been a member of the forum for a couple months now and I've gotten good feedback for questions I've asked. Before hondaswap I was typical ricer who was only interested in the looks and would have someone else deal with the motor. But now I'm all about the JDM sleeper but would like to understand how it all works. I mean I know engine codes and all that but all the info pertainig to ratios and timing and all that good stuff is like some lost language to me. Any help for the new guy? Like where would I start? Like what are the basics that I should get down that would start to make everything else make sense. I mean I have some friends are into the whole scene but they're either too far from me or ricers. I know what I want my ride to look like and I know what engine I want and all that so I'm not totally clueless.
