    Yeah, so I figured, I've got the manifold, I've got the turbo... may as well do a test fit right?

    HA!

    Check it out.

    Sooooo, I called up the good ole friend, Alan... "Dude, do you have a good wheel on your grinder?" "Yeah... Why?" "Can I borrow it?" "Not til you tell me it's to make the tubo fit on the Honda, and that's the ONLY reason you need it." "Yeah, That's what it's for... The turbo's too damn big." "Perfect. You're finally learning how to buy parts. Bigger is better. Come get it."

    So I go get ye olde Black & Decker 90 degree angle grinder with a semi fresh soft metal disk. This thing was FUN. :)

    Here's a taste.

    Here's what I ended up having to do. Use the engine code pic above for comparison.

    And after a few hours cleanup and other stuff.... (it had gotten dark, sorry)

    Now, I hope you enjoyed my little ex-po-say into a day int he life of me, but I'm not promising anything.

    I'm still waiting on my motor mount to get back, and I need money so I can order my JimFab Traction bars, and a 92-95 Civic half size radiator so I can fit this beast. Also I need some cheese to pay the local shop for a DP fabrication.

    FUN. :)

    It's getting close, guys....

    Thank you, thank you. The camber kit, and the front traction bars/crossmember should be in monday or tuesday.

    The buildup continues.
