    So yesterday, my Intercooler Piping arrived, THANKS EREBUNICRX AND COREYR!!!!

    And that was all that I needed!! Sorry there aren't better, more in depth pictures, but we were on a time limit, and the excitement kinda kept my hands on the car and off of the camera.

    Here we go!

    Draining oil and coolant.

    Dropping oil pan.

    A little test fit action.

    Bolted on with downpipe and wastegate.

    A little bit closer now.

    ErebuniCRX and CoreyR custom charge pipe.

    Getting couplers put on (Couplers are a PAIN IN THE ASS!!!) We didn't have enough, so some are rigged! :p

    A little bit closer again.

    My best friend Mike who sold me this kit, and helped me install it.

    Me putting in the Fluidyne, I look like I have a Mullet! LOL! [​IMG]

    Fluidyne succesfully installed.

    Does the hood close over the massive HKS Wastegate? YEP!

    Finished. Time to test drive!! [​IMG]

    It went smooth, blew one coupler off on the test drive. It's pushing 10psi for now. Stock LS. I need to get my exhaust put together today, cut my bumper to fit and come up with a much more secure mount system for the intercooler. Zip Ties just don't cut it for me!

    Comments, flames, anything, just EVERYONE, give me some feedback! :ph34r:

    Thanks! :mrgreen:

    It is an SSAuto Mani. It's only temporary, I need to get a differnt manifold with the WG flange on the other side. There is a lot of clearance issuse betweent the Radiator and the wastegate. And I didn't really have a choice on the manifold because I bought it from a friend. And as of right now, I am not using any fuel management. I have E-Manage for it but it isn't installed yet.

    You hush!! :p

    umm...definetly get a new manifold AND some fuel management! Don't stomp on it to much until you get fuel managment. E-mange is "good" for a little bit but I wouldn't rely on that, then again im not that balsy lol.

    Thank you! The LS is actually only temporary, because I get a strong feeling that this motor wont last very long. BUT, I actually just bought myself a full B16a bottom end like a week ago, that I am going to do the rings and water and oil pump on. I already have a B16 head that I was going to use on my B18c5 block that needs to be sleeved, so I am going to do the valve guide seals and the valve springs in the head. Then I'll get some ARP studs and a Cometic 3mm head gasket for her and put that all in with the snail. Hopefully that will run reliably enough to be a daily driver on like 7-10lbs. And that will keep a smile on my face untill I can get the ITR block sleeved and built.

    Ya, you will see it for sure! And a ride will definetly be in order! :thumbsup: I can't wait untill our little CO Hondaswap Meet! [​IMG]

    I will see what I can do.


    I got the Intercooler mounted up on Friday, it's the HomeDepot intercooler mounting bracket system of doom! I will get pictures when it stops snowing.

    I have a few questions for anyone reading this though. I will probably post these under the F.I. forum too, but double the views means double the answers.

    Ok, right now, I have NO FUEL MANAGEMENT hooked up on the car. I have: Greddy E-Manage, RC 450cc saturated injectors, and a B&M FPR. How should I go about tuning all of this once it's installed? Do I tune the E-Manage through a Laptop, or do I need a Profec or a Super AFC or something? Are the Injectors going to be overkill for 10lbs? And do I need a Fuel Pump?(Stock HF Fuel Pump right now.)

    i'm not sure i understand when you say you have NO managment....
    you don't even have an FMU on it?
    how are you driving it?

    i would use a walbro 255, and the 450cc's with uberdata or turbo edit if you're still obd0

    i believe the FPR works off vacuum, so its not gonna help you now
