    looks real good, hopefully after you get done with the track you go back and mount the intercooler better than zipties lol, should work fine tho.

    Tite, I need to decide what I doing with my car :( I want to boost, but I want a 1.8 (insert Jeffs "buy my block commentary" here). I 'll figure it out when I get home.

    There is something to be said for B16 Boost. You wont have hook up problems because of high torque :)

    Damn a lot of questions....

    well first of all i just found out that my clutch is shot...The shit wont even do a burnout..bahahah..My reaction sux...Plus i had my tool box and some other junk in the trunk plus a spare tire...
    I raced with my steelies and Ran 9.39 in the 8th..What would that be in the 1/4 mile?

    I was impressed....I was only boosting 5 lbs...Not to shaby....
    My tranny wasn't letting me shift into 3rd gear while @ 6500 and over RPM.. I called ripperbone and he said it sounds like the clutch..so Its time to get the new clutch....
    I will be racing again This Tuesday hopefully with another tranny and clutch...
    The shit ran good with no sound of Detonation whatsoever. :)

    Oh and by the way Formby yeah Im running my four door civic....
    everyone @ the track was impressed....The guys @ the track saw me running and after the first pass it was funny..everyone came to see what i had.


    I beat a MUSTANG yO!<-- twice...bahaha..

    Just because you don't hear detonation doesn't mean it's not happening. Get your car tuned at a reputable shop with a dyno and wideband.

    If you are going 400 mph it probably won't take 10 seconds to cover the last 1/8th mile.... :)

    I tried a few different things and trap speed is irrelevant to that.
