Dave,

If I missed the picture of the air filter, can you guide me to it? What I am concerned about is the intake inlet. The scope looks nice, but isn't it a little too small for that motor?

Look for "CAI" in the index on page 1. I've since added "(air filter)" to that entry in the index.


Sorry for the delay, I've been very busy. First drive was 7/7 at about 11:30am. I didn't go very far as the front shocks were on the bump stops. I'll do some write-ups (no pics) explaining all that, if anyone is interested.


Thanks,
Dave

Dave you are aware that your ECT (engine coolant temps) will be significantly higher since you are not getting the same air flow right?!?!

That could lead to detonation and other internal damage. I would suggest that you get something like Crome, Uberdata, Hondata, NepTune ect so that you can alter the ECT fan actuation settings and keep the temps down.

Otherwise it looks great man!

Not sure if you have something planned, but these hood dampers from Tein would could take the place of that nice piece of wood you have

Good luck, can't wait to hear more about how she drives.

I would love to hear you impressions on the drive. How did it feel/sound/handle? Feel anything at all like a real production mid-rwd car?

I know Dave was somewhat trying to mimic an MR2, the only difference I see is that the MR2 had venting on top of the engine lid as well as the side scoops.

It will be hard to add a vented hatch? Although some FI NSX setups have scoops out of plexiglass part of their hatch.

Post #DC2H22-88


I installed some interior trim panels today.





Put a handle on the engine cover hood





and made a prop rod for it. I used the passenger grab handle from the Prelude.







An old windshield molding clip works great for holding the washer hoses out of the way of the front hood prop rod.



The alignment settings are still being developed, along with the tire pressures. This is a time consuming process, as the entire alignment has to be gone through with every change. Im not so much trying to figure out the optimum alignment settings as I am learning how the car responds to various settings. Ive set the camber at 1 all around and have been changing caster and toe in the front only. I set 1/8 total toe in the rear and havent changed anything there while working on the front end. The car drives great, by the way. VTEC hits like a ton of bricks, right at 5000. The car is heavier and the weight distribution is biased a little more to the rear than Id hoped, but Im still in the assembly stage, as you can see above. I also have not yet installed the spare in the front, so that will help with the distribution. Well just have to see where the final numbers end up.



Cheers!
Dave
