Sweet balls dude, sweet balls! I await 1/4 times and dynos! My car feels insane since I put on the mag head and the crane 004 cam too.

Camshaft oil seal, phew, one thing I"m glad I remembered to do when I put the car together. I probably pulled apart the timing side of my motor 3 or 4 times before I got it right.

Vids, none yet

Dyno, soon

Ride, sure!

Yeah, with the addition of the ODP, cleaned head and valve job, higher compression plus fresh engine - WOWsers. Damn car came alive tonight on way home from work.

Oh, and the damn push button start fried :evil: I did it the other day - when I pressed in the clutch it automatically would start so it was getting some power all the time... must have been the way it was hooked up to the relay or wired somehow... either way, it went poof! So I am gonna pull it apart and take it to Honda and see what they say. :lol: For $35 I am not worried about it - car runs, that is all I want. SO the starter is back to the Cig-lighter.

Also, my total bill ran me 770 for the engine rebuild, 45 for a new piston, 40 for belts, and all the extra stuff like fluids, what not (100) I spent well over 1100.... and I got a whole bunch of tools and an air compressor out of the deal :D :D :D SO all in all I spent $1800 for a complete rebuild. Wife was PISSED... but she loves me.

That oil seal, what a noob I am. But I can pull an engine apart in about 2 hours now. :lol:

Well, here is the deal.......

Car still runs great! Got it align'd and tires switched around (had bad wear on the outside tires on the driver side), and car runs like a beast. It has been almost 1000 miles since rebuild, so I am pleased. I had to replace a fog light, so no more yellow fogs (cheap bulbs, etc) and am thinking about redoing the interior lights - red? We shall see. I am going to be doing some drastic changes to her next year; here is the list:

1) MegaSquirt
2) Coilovers
3) Solid Bushings
4) New adjustable sways (large front and rear)
5) NO2 (maybe ;))

That is all for now. Time for a change, I want some power, but not all the time. I was told by the wife a baby and house first, SRT4 later - maybe I will get a Challenger instead :twisted:

Dyno coming soon, sometime.

no, my faceplate always comes off and the pod is never in the car except with me in it. I hate thieves.
