    Should be fun... I woulda gone with an V-AFC instead of a 'custom chip' though because tuning is always better than some shop's guesswork.

    (yesterday) in the back of the hatch, the head went off to the machine shop... hope to have it back by next weekend.
    flywheel and clutch are going on tomorrow (will have pics).
    today i cleaned off the top of the pistons and put the new throwout bearing onto the input shaft of the tranny.

    BTW, what is the purpose of the lost motion assembly? i'm guessing it slows the vtec rocker when the motor disengages from vtec?

    you are correct about the lost motion assembly's.

    and yes your motor looks clean, i'd like to see the numbers you put down...

    also...something to consider...the program you are running is designed for a 1.8 liter motor. that means the timing will be for a 1.54 rod/stroke ratio, not 1.74. this will cause you to not make as much power...

    i'd stay with stock pr3 and adjust the air/fuel accordingly....plus its insane to rev past 8500 in my opinion...just wears the motor out faster.

    Hey I was just wondering why is the inside of the stock head gold?? my friend just got his 95 b18c1 in the mail and i was changing out the valvesprings and retainers and noticed that the damn thing is gold, thats not factory. I have a jdm b18c and its not, and my brother has a 94 b18c1 and its not either.

    :D
