    ...and I am ready damnit....

    [​IMG]

    Installed yesterday, and it was a real pain because I had to remove the poly filled mount instead of just unbolting it and sliding it over :(, But tomorrow I get it refilled and Texas heat can bite my ass.

    Also spruced up the head with a new cam end seal, seen here...

    Which I guess Honda redisned after a while, because the one I took out, which was a P30, was completely different than the P72 one. The P30 was a huge rubber covered plug with a hardy ring on the inside, this one is a plastic pop-in that has a rubber seal. I guess when they realized that it was a bad idea to have to remove the cam to replace this, they changed it., also hit up the oring on the distributor as I noticed some crud building up underneath it from a bad seal, anyway, that's what I did yesterday for a couple hours :)

    It was 6,25 euro for the zylinderkopf stopfen :) probably a lot less in the states considering the AC belt was 21,39 euro :(

    Than someone is getting rich off peoples ignorance, it's like a $5 part from Honda. Unless that's for some name brand replacement like the Golden Eagle ones. Part number 1251-P72-003


    Edit, here's what you're talking about...

    Complete waste of money. I'd rather buy a chrome plated bitch pin for my shiftlinkage.

    I can still hit most anything Honda in there :)

    But on a side note Tim, guess who decided to wreck their GST with brand new charge piping and new downpipe the day I installed AC? :) I am sure though that every head on post is going to be trying to get that set up off him. I think the big ol' HKS IC survived too :eek:
