    so it finally started! after a month and a half of waiting and spending cash. got 2 questions though

    breaking in till about 300 miles.? is that correct ohhh and with no vtec. Due to the ecu still being obd0 and tuned for the previous build which means i'm running lean. Onece i break it in i'm putting in the p28 chipped and tuned and then its go time vtec !

    also should i be worried about a 2nd o2 sensor code since i dont have one? you can check out my rex by clicking on my albums. I'll post more recent one soon

    old setup
    stock head with gsr cams
    stock block with pr3 pistons

    new setup

    ENTIRE forged 11.3.1 compression eagle rotaing assembly
    h beam rods

    p&p'ed head with skunk2 springs,retainers and stager2 cams thanks to Mike bergy [​IMG]

    FEELS GRAET AND HAS ALOT OF TORQUE! (compared to the ols setup) I hope i can hit the 200hp mark.

    thanks for the ifo. I was told that its actually pretty good to run a tad bit lean. As soon as i get some money i'm going to 0bd1.

    Break-in is a bit faster if you're a tad lean, but go unchecked and it could actually be pretty dangerous.
