    that turbo on the EF looks like its gonna suck in an electrical harness... kinda ghetto mounted.
    Some people live long, meaningful lives.

    Other people eat shit and die.

    I'm not racist, I hate everybody equally; especially fat people.

    t04e? Isn't that a big turbo?

    It is actually a Garrett 60-1 ball bearing with quick spool. A friend was building a boosted frankenstein k24 but the turbo was too big for the engine bay, so I got it for $650 brand new. He said it is good for much more HP than my current goal is, I just couldn't pass it up at that price.

    Sorry for no size reference, but this turbo has a 4" inlet.

    I had to change the alternator on the D15 today, worst $#@!ing thing I've ever done. There is no way to get the alternator out of the engine bay unless you move it behind the engine and across to the passenger side before pulling it out behind the intake manifold. I spiked the old one into the ground after I got it out.

    I finally got the spanner wrench I needed to adjust my coils, all the way to the bottom of the sleeve and it still has about 1.5" of wheel gap, I guess they didn't account for stripped out cars lol. Painted the wheels black too, gold was too gaudy.

    Before pic, with the dumbest dog in the world (at least she is strong):

    She is a pit bull, pretty sure mixed with mastiff somewhat recently. Her weight is 55 lbs and she is only 10 months old, with about another 6-8 months of growing until she is full size. She was looking at the camera in the picture because she will chase anything that emits light as well as shadows, even her own.

    Really cool looking dog, I liked how she was just staring into the camera sort of blankly.

    No real updates this week, I've been messing with the 135i. I finally got an engine hoist so I'm pulling the b18 out of the integra then selling the shell and the motor to free up some room in the garage. It is getting pretty cold here, don't really want to be working on the civic in the elements.

    I'm in North Carolina, I'm from San Diego though. I'm about to deploy this month so don't expect any updates for a while. The civic was dropped off at my friend's shop today and by the time I get back the motor should be complete. New plan for the tune is a 350-400whp street tune and a 500-600whp e85 tune. My friend's EG hatch with a Precision 6162 just got finished today, when I go by the shop this weekend I'll take some pictures of that.

    Got the motor pulled and to the shop, I'm trading it for a new built transmission and a b16 head (no cams).

    My friends car was at the same shop getting the rest of the carbon fiber put on. He now has a carbon fiber hood, roof and hatch. He is running a 6162 and up to 20 something psi on high boost. He pretty much has the same setup as I will have, but with a different turbo.

    I drove his car for a few miles on street tires, in 30 degree weather, with the bottle on. The car spun the tires hard through 5 gears. With drag radials on he said it only spins 1st through 3rd.

    Lot's of respect for those Honda motors.

    Small update: my block is at the machine shop getting sleeves. Once that is done the short block will be put together, crank knifed and everything balanced for a 11k red line (probably won't rev it out that high, but want this over built). Head will go out to get ported soon for pretty much no reason because the b16 head is good for way more power than I am going for. Just future-proofing, who knows when I will need a 900whp fwd car.

    Can't tell you how badass that sounds.

    I really like Honda motor building.

    Nice build so far man! LS-V's on Boost are amazing! Nothing like building Honda Motor's! Hopefully soon enough i'll have another Honda project to keep me occupied!!

    Hope you've invested in some Bronze Valve Guides for your valvetrain. Cheap insurance especially reving that high. I used Ferrea Valve guides in my last build with Supertech valvetrain, Dart block etc...

    Looking forward to see this build progress! Keep up the good work!

    I'm still deployed, but a little update: Block is sleeved, head ended up being warped so I got a type r head instead. I took ///MPOWERED's advice and got it built with Ferrea valve guides and supertech valve train, with stock type r cams. The rest of the long block was: forged 9:1 compression 84mm pistons (2.0 liter), forged rods, upgraded wrist pins, machined stock b18a crank, ARP head studs, oem gasket kit, moroso oil pan, vtec water pump, type r oil pump, gates timing belt, golden eagle ls-vtec kit, cometic head gasket and everything was balanced to 11.5k rpm. The tuner said there will be no power gain that high up with the stock type r cams and that he will only rev it to 9.5-10k rpm when he tunes it. The transmission I have is a JDM (as $#@!) short geared SiR with cryo treated gears. I had to replace the LSD with a new Synchrotec one as well as get drive shaft shop axles. At this point all I need to complete the drive train is a fuel pump, fuel rail, injectors, ignition system, intake manifold, turbo manifold, wastegate, exhaust, and intercooler/piping/bov. I'm looking for a ram horn manifold that will let me run AC in an EF, anyone have any suggestions?
