    I've got almost no floorspace in my room...but it's awesome.

    Saturday I'm taking my block to Intercrew to get spec'd for bearings, and to get the bearings ordered, then the Saturday after that I'm picking up the block, pistons, rods, and bearings from Intercrew. Hopefully by then I'll have received the rings from ImportBuilders, and can start putting everything together on Sunday after next.

    lol.

    but seriously the block guard seems unnessary to me, i mean mike ran his b20/vtec for 40k+ miles on the same compression with no problems. IMO all it will do is restrict coolant flow.

    and nothing really critical on the ctuch disc, just that its gonna be crazy aggressive. and again in my eyes, not necessary and something that could possibly cause damage to the transmission.

    other then that its all badass and i wish i could handle his debt, lol.

    and im VERY interested in hearing how the RSR exhaust sounds. i want one so bad but i cant justify getting rid of the thermal. did you get the full catback or just the axle back? and one more question, do you plan to coat the header at all? just wondering since it will rust.

    Dude STAY AWAY FROM BLOCK GUARDS!

    They work great if you want nothing but a track car.

    I've heard nothing but bad stuff about block guards unless used for a track only car.

    If you're going to do it...... do it right.

    get the motor sleeved. then later on you might want to slap a little or LOT of boost to it =)

    Goddamn dude you seriously have too much fucking money.

    I've put an intake on my car in the same time you've modded the fuck out of your fo do, bought a prelude, sold the prelude and bought a hatch, swapped a b16 and now are already modding the fuck out of it.

    Christ... must be nice to not have any real world bills.

    but... looks fuckin pimp. :p

    1. It's the whole RSR cat-back.

    2. Yes, I'm going to at LEAST spray some high-temp clearcoat on it

    3. Jeffie - no shit? Hmm...thanks for the info...looks like I won't be using it.

    4. James - I'm a telemarketer. I make $14 an hour, and live with a roommate, so that the only bills I have to pay are $250 for rent plus food and gas and other small expenses. I also have a little over $8k of debt.

    5. It's a thermostat.

    6. Weakass ctr trannies?

    7. Spectacle - Everything that you see in my sig cost me right under $6k, except for the head, which I already had.

    8. It's the JDM ITR from JHPUSA.

    actually, puck style clutches are very bad for the transmission because of their such such sudden activation. I have seen alot of people on HT that have ruined their ITR/ctr/si ect tranny because of it.

    ehh....I've ruined a transmission over less.



    j/k...well, I mean, I have...but this isn't going to see too many highway miles. I live about 2 blocks from my work, and about 8 miles from the track.

    edit: and this is ACT's equivalent of a stage 2...it's the 2600....

    You really don't need a 4 puck... but I would still try to get a clutch disc with a sprung hub- that will reduce the wear and tear on your transmission by quite a bit. I don't know makes one- but Phillip knows. He had a 6 puck disc in teh shop with a sprung hub that he showed me once, so ask him about it.

    If you're going to use the block guard, get it welded in before you have the block bored/honed.

    You can send the header out to be ceramic coated for about $150 I think. Spray painting with high temp paint isn't worth your time and trouble- it's just going to burn off after a few weeks.

    Oh yeah, UPS tracking shows that the pistons and rods already got to Intercrew. I guess I should have saved the cash and skipped the $1000 of insurance- but better safe than sorry right?
