    D16Z6 turbo... :thumbsup:

    I would switch back to OEM honda plug wires and chip your ECU for fuel management (ubedata/hondata), the vafc is not the best option.

    On a quiet night, you can hear a d-series ninja being born...

    It sounds a lot like bodywork, sawzall-ing, and tig-welding.
    Get it sexy, then make it look good :D!

    It doesn't look too bad, but since your in MA I wouldn't shave the handles, I did it to my last hatch and got frozen out once. It only happened once but it was a pain in the ass, and I was stupid enough to shave the lock off the hatch too, so I couldn't even climb in. Just remember hair dryers are your friend.
