    Damn it EG. It sucks ass at times that I can't give rep to the same people twice within a period of time. I'll just say it here, THANK YOU for posting that link. That's freakin' great info right there. :D

    It is great info, and it's available right here on HondaSwap, which makes it even better. I'd be willing to say that at least 75% of all noob questions could be answered by doing some reading in the reference section.

    Just throwing that out there for anyone who stumbles upon this thread...

    I couldn't agree with you more on this. I researched (and am STILL researching) my build, what I want/need...etc., for about six months on here before I posted my own thread. Granted there is still a LOT I have to learn. Amen for taking the time to read and find out what you need on your own. :D
