looks real good, hopefully after you get done with the track you go back and mount the intercooler better than zipties lol, should work fine tho.

There is something to be said for B16 Boost. You wont have hook up problems because of high torque :)

Damn a lot of questions....

well first of all i just found out that my clutch is shot...The shit wont even do a burnout..bahahah..My reaction sux...Plus i had my tool box and some other junk in the trunk plus a spare tire...
I raced with my steelies and Ran 9.39 in the 8th..What would that be in the 1/4 mile?

I was impressed....I was only boosting 5 lbs...Not to shaby....
My tranny wasn't letting me shift into 3rd gear while @ 6500 and over RPM.. I called ripperbone and he said it sounds like the clutch..so Its time to get the new clutch....
I will be racing again This Tuesday hopefully with another tranny and clutch...
The shit ran good with no sound of Detonation whatsoever. :)

Oh and by the way Formby yeah Im running my four door civic....
everyone @ the track was impressed....The guys @ the track saw me running and after the first pass it was funny..everyone came to see what i had.


I beat a MUSTANG yO!<-- twice...bahaha..

Based on this calculator:

You'd be at about 14.6 in the quarter. Not too bad on only 5psi! Get it tuned and crank up the boost so you can go deep in the 13s.

Just because you don't hear detonation doesn't mean it's not happening. Get your car tuned at a reputable shop with a dyno and wideband.

If you are going 400 mph it probably won't take 10 seconds to cover the last 1/8th mile.... :)

I tried a few different things and trap speed is irrelevant to that.
