    wow- that tach is completely worthless down there. how do you look at it while driving? lol

    other than that, car looks good.

    what ecu are you running? if you're still obd2, you're going to need to convert to obd1 to run hondata/uberdata...

    Yeah chris is making me the harness when i go to obd1 right now it's a SI ecu.

    the tach is down there for two reasons one i hate the fucking thing so i wanted it out of view but it has a dummy light on it too so it works. The afc has a tach and so does the stock dash so i think the plan is to take out the tach and get a independent dummy light and put it in the driver side far left vent out of site.

    TURBOMIRAGE does ecu work?

    like thinking something broke or went wrong

    Looks good man. What compression are you shooting for? Let me know if you need an ecu harness and chipped Hondata/Uberdata/Crome prepped P28 ecu.

    right now its stock compression i believe 11:1 it's possible later down the road i'll be going with a higher domed ctr piston coated.

    but as far as getting chipped I know i'll be getting the harness from chris.. i'll need a p28 im sure.. but the car will be on a direct port system im hearing there's conflictions with this and the fuel mapping since the system introduces fuel as well as n2o

    any ideas on this..
