    If everything goes as planned, my engine should start tomorrow morning, with tuning to start tomorrow afternoon. We're just trying to get one little part from Endyn to wrap up the bottom end so the oil pan can be bolted on for good...

    Here are the drivetrain build details:

    Golden Eagle sleeved GSR block, 85.5mm bore x 89mm stroke
    CP pistons (IB Spec) with Swain Tech coatings for 12.77:1 compression
    XC rings (IB again)
    Probe Ultralight rods (from IB too, thanks Jeff!)
    Stock B16 head (for now)
    310cc RC Engineering injectors
    Clutchmasters 7.5lb flywheel
    ACT HD/SS clutch
    JDM SiR2 transmission w/LSD (USDM ITR equivalent)
    Hondata S200 with all the goodies

    Here's one of the pretty pistons again:

    [​IMG]

    Hopefully we'll be able to pull 185-190hp and 145-150lbft at the wheels, maybe more.

    Side note- I've been reading up on Hondata's site to get ready for tomorrow, and I saw a cool little link on there labelled "PalmLog." Now I don't have to build a computer for my car anymore- I just have to buy a $60 calble and build a mount for my Palm!

    http://www.hondata.com/manuals/PalmLog/PalmLog.html

    [​IMG]

    I'll be able to datalog on my Palm and change some settings on the fly too- like the 3 stage rev limiter (great for valet duty) and other crap without using the old school red button on the dash. Neato.

    I'm excited, can't you tell? Hopefully I'll be able to have the car back for a uh... longer period of time with this engine build.

    :)

    I voted that you suck because, well, you do. You and your build suck. Which is exactly why you and your car need to come to the Hill Climb to prove me wrong. :D

    Four words for you, Mike:

    Toda Cams and Valvetrain.

    Toda may or may not be the choice... we shall see. The headwork matters more though- so I'm seeing about $3000-4000 to complete the head, maybe a little less. That's going to take some time.

    we got some bad ass pistons! YEA!

    190-195 WHP? What the heck? you mean with B16A cams and a stock header? If you need some cams and valvetrain, I HOOK IT UP STUPID STYLE and can have you them next week!

    So you can make your 240 and call it a day.

    Definitely. Jeff has been awesome through all this! :thumbsup:

    Keep Larry Widmer in your thoughts too- he was in the hospital yesterday for surgery. I think he's out now, but it's never easy doing under the knife.

    He was in the hospital for cancer stuff.

    Sure. He's already out of the hospital though, and I've never talked to him in person.
