I learned to tune from dsm guys. Guys that said fuck a dyno, too expensive and too many wheels being driven. We tune using the exhaust gas temperatures, seeing how close to 900degrees you can get the egts on stock internals after a good hard run. I love tuning this way and would love to do so on my honda, my question is, about when do b16 pistons and rods start hating life? What temp? Please no hearsay on this one, I need to know for sure so i dont melt anything. TIA
