    well, after almost a week without my sol it's back up and running, this time powered by an lsvtec. the only problems we ran into was the thermostat not opening up at first and in turn the fan wouldn't turn on. no engine codes.. it holds idel perfectly, actually even better than before. I'm running a p28/ hondata with a p72 obd1 gsr map in it as my base map.

    i'm tired as hell, so i'll just post this link and probably add more tomorrow...

    i finished it, drove it home from our shop (2 miles) then drove to and from my girlfriends house (12 each way)

    well, then i drove it back to the shop this morning to double check all the coolant hoses again and to network my dad's shop and hook up hte DSL, so i guess it's got 28 miles on it so far :)

    its a longer gear than the ITR 5th is .... so it keeps you from being at 5K RPM on the highway

    doesn't anyone click on links anymore??

    http://www.hondaswap.com/~pills/thesetup.html


    i haven't proven a 30 whp increase yet, but i've seen a gsr in a hatch put down 157 whp with an intake and exhaust on it. my b16 put down 165. and the lsvtec is running 12.3:1 compression where the b16 was running 11:1

    Congrats, on completing your LSVtec, I am sure you heard of the dark sol del sol, well if you haven't he has ran a pretty decent time slip 12.9 all motor with a 1.8 and CTR cams up top. Here is the link if you want to check the specifications out. http://www.darksol.com/showcase.html . Good luck breaking that 1.834 liter in.

    1.845 huh, my bump :D , at least you got a little more umff from your bottom. Yeah, i was aware of Darksol running an ITR bottom.

    I thought that his DelSol weighed in at just over 2k lbs? oh well.

    I noticed that you posted that you plan on gaining an extra 30"W"hp from the difference in displacement, Now I agree with you on gaining more displacement from the extra stroke, but 30whp, just curious how you plan on attaining this with the extra 48 cc's.

    Not trying to say that you can't do just curious on how you are going to get it.
