    In my opinion, you should get whatever management system your tuner likes because the end result is really the big point here.

    From my understanding, AEM is weird/different in certain ways but if a tuner has worked with it enough, it's a good system.

    Motec is baller status....that's all I know. Never knew anyone running it but I don't know ever car's set up at the track. It's nice but brings us back to tuner's comfortability.

    I've got Hondata....it's enough for my needs but I'd like to have a standalone like AEM.....with their display and such.

    Thanks for the feedback.

    I am going to stick with Hondata for now. But I am going to save up and get motec and all the goodies to go with it. I know someone who tunes motec.

    So I have a BIG update. I've upgraded everything. I'm sparing no expense on this build. Also I have a local speed shop giving me a street car sponsorship. I'm getting all my parts at cost!!!

    Now I will be able to get my interior restored.

    I'm getting new carpet and new head liner,

    I'm getting the car painted, door jams, car, engine bay and ect. He's also going to shave my engine bay.

    I purchased Black anodized Hasport 70a engine and trans mounts. I was able to get the last set before they we're discontinued I got very lucky. Their not making these mounts anymore.

    Also the BIGGEST news is that I spoke to Victory Precision Machine! They are starting the machine work Monday!!!!


    Today I purchased 100% full ferrera valvetrain and valves. I ordered std size competition plus valves. New valve guides and ect.

    My cr is a little on the low side so I have to go with Skunk2 Pro 1 cams.

    My compression should come out around 10:5 1 to 11:1. Its because I'm using a B16 head.

    Victory Precision Machine sent me an email and said my build should produce 1000whp. Omg that's a lot of power. That's great because next year I'm converting to awd.

    I should have my motor by August 15th.

    I'm buying everything brand new and oem. Seals gaskets, itr oil pump, water pump, alternator timing belt, cam seals, cam gears, and ect.

    I'm getting the mains diamond honed. And putting in upgraded arp mains.

    I'm also getting the block oringed and buying L19 Head Studs. Going to use a golden eagle head gasket.

    I'm also ordering Wilwood Big Brake Kit for the front.

    I will be putting new wheel studs and new wheel bearings on. And I'm going to buy new spherical lower control arm bushings for the steer axle.

    I'm basically building and restoring the car.

    I'm also going to have a local shop make a custom a/c kit for the car too.

    And I'm going to get an aftermarket alarm with remote start and GPS.

    The very last thing I will do is buy a good quality sound system too.

    Oh and I'm buying new wheels and tires.

    Guys I am so excited!!! I've waited a long time to get to this point.

    I appreciate everyone that's been following my build. I've learned a lot and have made a few mistakes along the way. But that's cool. At least I will have a fun and comfortable race/street car.

    Oh I forgot to mention. I'm going to have 2 different tunes on my car. 1 for daily driving and 1 for when I want to have some fun.

    I will post some pics of some of the parts I've bought later.

    Small update:

    At this point all the parts needed to complete the build have been purchased.

    Last thing on the list. I bought an OEM ITR oil pump. I'm sending my oil pump to victory to have it CNC ported.

    Very very exciting. I'm Estimating at 3-4 more weeks and hopefully it will either be getting bolted in or being shipped back. ***Crosses Fingers***

    I found out on Tuesday they haven't done anything with the motor yet.

    I'm really starting to get upset. They've been paid and they have all the parts. It's going to be September soon. I sure hope the wait is worth it.

    You shouldn't give them everything upfront, no incentive to get it done.

    take it from me ... dont pay upfront ... thats how I got fucked out of a $5550 paint job when the shop closed and filed personal/business bankruptcy and was a motherfucker to get my car and parts in the shop back. if the shop isnt reputable to be able to cover things upfront then dont deal with them
