Too bad the video is set to private so no one can watch it
Been a while since I last updated, there hasn't been much to update unfortunately. Mostly because I discovered I have a spinal injury, probably caused by an accident I had back in 2006. (Someone rear ended me in a mini-van @ 55mph, face slammed into the steering wheel pretty hard)

So I can't really do any car work - or much of anything that is very physical - until April next year or so while my spine is being worked on. When the time comes I will have some goodies to install though. Echelonwarrior sold me his USDM ITR cluster, JDM clusters are all over the place, but finding a USDM ITR cluster was a bit more challenging, just wish it was under a more positive note:

Today I also snatched two more DM-6 gauges, PLX is having a buy one get one FREE sale today, it didn't take me long to hit "checkout"! I am a HUGE fan of the DM-6 gauge and would recommend it, especially with the AFR module. Being able to see a live graph at any time while driving is pretty cool, and is great for fine tuning. So I'll have 3 of these bad boys on my gauge pod, very excited. Also because they use modules which can be chained together it will MAJORLY simplify my gauge wiring.

Today is the LAST day of the sale though, so head on over and grab em while you can!

Thread from the dead! Yes, I still have my ITR swapped Integra, it is also garage kept now. I also got engaged to my girlfriend of 3 years last Wednesday the 10th!

Car has been sitting for about a year now, recently installed a new 2-din radio with apple carplay, worked on the speakers and sub which I was never happy with, and fixed some rear-bumper sag issues. Pic from today:

Battery seems dead again....left it off the charger for a few days. :mad: Only got 3 years out of it and very little use...might need to go with an Optima yellowtop or something. Also, old car doing old car of the main rear brake lines in leaking onto the plastic tray. Another member in a post from 2017 replaced them with these with no issue, might go that route over building hardlines. We'll see. Beyond that she needs all new fluids. Getting there...

My daily is now a 2017 MK7 GTI Sport I purchased new in 2016 which now has 91k miles on it. It runs a hybrid turbo and made 426whp on a heartbreaker dyno last year, its a sleeper from hell:

Passenger rear brake line failed, thankfully I found out in the garage and not on a mountain road. Replaced with a $120 stainless steel kit off ebay from valexracing. So far so good, a lot easier than building new hardlines which would have been a nightmare. New battery and all new fluids as well:

Though I may have an issue with the health of the engine, I removed the oil cap and there is a concerning amount of blow-by. Probably do a compression and lead-down test today, though I'm pretty sure I might have some bad rings. :(
