    what paint did you use for the valve cover??? it looks like it still has the crinkle texture to it.. did you just paint over the black??

    well, when I bought the motor, the black crap on the valve cover was already pealing, so just scraped the rest of it off. i don't know why it still looked rippled. I think it's just because of the texture of the paint. it's pretty thick paint. and yes, we were pretty tired once that motor was out. we were pretty happy tho!

    your crx should go pretty well with a d16z. i've seen one with a 50 shot go 12.54 in the 1/4 mile.
