    ya know, in may, the most i could have told you about an engine is the fact that it had pistons (and later i learned even that wasnt a fact on the RX7 and 8 and on the cosmos)...just goin back through the Accord/Lude swap thread i found this:

    I dunno...its just crazy to think that i take apart an engine at least once a week...ive turboed 3 cars (helped at least) and taken apart a 91 Caprice 3 or 4 times and swapped a 350ci/280hp into it.

    now that i think about it...ive helped rebuild an LS-1 an LT-1 and install a blower on one of the LT-1s...good lord...there is more chevy in there...but i have yet to touch a ford other than my dads truck, and that was an oil change.

    Ok so i just went back and found my hyundi topic: http://www.hondaswap.com/forums/index.php?...topic=15783&hl=
    I wish I could go back in time and kick myself in the nuts. But now I've got 3.5 years of tech school under my belt, plus i'll be taking all my ASE exams in the spring so i guess we'll find out if i've learned anything since then.

    Its all about learning. Those who know - share, and those who read it, learn. About 3 years ago when I started working on my EG I didn't know shit about Hondas, suspension or boost. Fast forward to today - I've learned a whole bunch. Forums are great, but hanging out with guys who know thier shit is even better. The crew I hang out with includes an architect, a diesel tech, a pilot, and a cook. We all learn from each other, and we all share ideas and knowlage. I've corrected a guy from Trick Engineering about piping layout for a wastegate, and I've also sat down and listened to an F1 Dyno tech talk about A/F curves - and tried to take it all in.

    You'll never stop learning. I got an early start, and given my age, I'd assume I'm pretty lucky to know what I know, but it all comes from experience.

    Oh my lord I've come a long way too. It's always gratifying to get information from people who know what the hell they are talking about, whether it's on a forum or in person. :thumbsup:

    if you want to be t3h learned,
    sign up for an efi101.com class nearby you.

    its expensive as fuck... but so worth it.

    i personally haven't had a chance to go to it yet, but next time they are in my area and my chedule doesn't conflict, i'm going to it.
