This winter rebuild is going to consist of the following:

84mm Sleeved b18c5 (Darton MID Sleeves)
B17 Crankshaft
Eagle 5.531" Connecting Rods
Endyn Rollerwave Pistons
Cometic Headgasket

Spa Dual Oil Temp/Oil Pressure Gauge (Need to buy still)
Neptune RTP (Need to buy still)
Wideband Sensor (Need to buy still)
Oil Cooler (Need to buy, undecided on brand/style)

While I was waiting on my block to get back from Darton East, I decided to undertake a rewire project. I had the dash out (I forget why) and that monster thick cabin harness was just eyeing me down. I've stripped mostly everything out of the car already radio, a/c, heat etc, so I figured there were alot of unused wires. I've ended up rebuilding/wraping all the wiring in the entire car.

Whats done:
Front Harness (Headlights, Turnsignals, Boost Controller, Horn, Radiator Fan)
Front Firewall Harness (Wipers, Brake Fluid Level)
Rear Harness (Tailights, license plate lights, backup lights, Fuel Pump, Low Fuel Light, Fuel Gauge, Parking Brake)
Steering Column Harness (Starter, Steering Lock, Horn Button)
Dash/Guage Harness (Instrument Cluster, Hazard Switch)

The cabin Harness is done, it just needs to be wrapped, its already been tested. All thats left is the harness that goes from the ecu & gauges to the engine. I won't start working on this piece until the motor is assembled so I can get proper lengths.

Here a few pictures, I might bring my DSLR home from work today to take some better pictures.

Thanks for all of the comments!

Longg list of quality! Lol what numbers are you aiming for? And out of curiosity why did you chose to go with Neptune RTP?

Definitely in for the build! Post more picsss!
I can't say I'm really aiming for anything. Reliability is the most important factor in the build. But 750 injectors on 93 will give me about 450 max. The car still needs to be balanced, so around 250-275 on the road course, and 350-400 on the drag strip is the plan.

Neptune just looked to be a superior product then hondata, and cheaper? but I'm always open to suggestions?

This is going to be a nice build man, what is your HP goal? 12k/14k, hows it ride on the street?
Around 250-275 on the road course, and 350-400 on the drag strip.... The ride is good, but the ass end is so light, that big dips in the roads are the worst...Bumps aren't really a problem. If I was to daily drive the car, I'd go with the 10k/8k PIC selects.

Here is what the car looks like as of last night...

I got the fuel lines, battery and some under the hood stuff done this weekend. I still need to wrap the cabin wiring harness, so I can get the dash back in and the interior all buttoned back up up.

Here are some more updates.

I finally finished the main cabin harness....Never again.

I also got the front wire harness mounted up all nice and neat under the fender. I wasn't trying to do a wire tuck, but the harness was just a little too short to make the normal route through the bay. :frown:

And the rear harness, it was late, dark and phone was dieing so no flash.

And finally the bottom end assembly patiently waiting on bearings to arrive from honda. They'll be here Friday so hopefully, I'll get a good chunk of the bottom end done this weekend.

A few updates with pics. I got the bottom end assembled with oem bearings, I made a small little app that helps keep track of the calculations.

I got the head milled and back on the block yesterday, here's a snap with the cams all lubed up. I always use moly lube for cams.

I've been lacking in the update department. Alot of my time has been taking parts on and off, test fitting etc.

The trans will need to be taken off, the down pipe is going to ride way to close to the slave cylinder. I might be able to make it fit, but I'm sure it would be impossible to bleed it. So my best option is to convert to a pull style slave. I can't seem to get enough arm power in there to drill through the clutch fork (hardened steel). So I'll need to get this piece out and onto a drill press :frown:

Otherwise its coming together slowly. Radiator has its new permanent home. I just need to pull it back off and weld up fittings, drain plug, and a new top feed. The radiator is sitting too low for the fill. So I'm going to relocate a filler neck above and position it where the stock filler neck would be.

I'll have more lines ran for the turbo and oil cooler this week. Then it will be on to charge pipes and the downpipe.

beautiful build man solid list of parts! is that a DIY b pillar bar?
Yeah I made it a long time ago (5 years?) for a camera mount... It needs to be taken out, I bet it weights over 10lbs.

Some more minor updates, things are finally settling into place. The slave cylinder needs a line ran, but I'm having trouble locating a m12 x 1.0 female inverted flare that goes to a -4an, I may have to run a longer stainless line then I prefer.

I received my sandwich plate for the oil cooler the other day, but it will not fit unless the stock ITR cooler is on as well. Since I will not be running the itr cooler, I opted to get a filter relocation kit. Figured since I'm moving all of the oil to the front of the car, I might as well make the filter easier to get to. I still need to fab up brackets for the cooler, and run more an lines for this.

That radiator placement is perfect. Read thru and realized its custom and I cried a little on the inside lol
There really wasn't too much effort to make it happen.

I bought the radiator from summit racing, at the time they had a special and it came with free mounts. :cool:
I drilled the tack welds out that hold the factory radiator on bottom of the frame. I bent the free mounts and welded them to the bottom frame with a simple mig.
The radiator: I drilled out the top for the new water water neck. I then cut out aluminum circles to cover the original filler neck, original water outlet. I also drilled a hole in the bottom for a peacock drain.
then I picked up up aluminum -16 an bungs. And also pick up this filler neck from csr Inline Radiator Hose Filler - 16AN to 16an - Cooling Products - CSR
I have a tig, but I'm not skilled enough yet for aluminum. So I dropped the pieces off at my local welder, and he hooked me up :biggrin:

I can't say that this radiator was a cheap setup, if I had to add it all up:

radiator: 335
filler neck: 85
an stuff: 157
welding: 40

so a little over 600 bucks just for the radiator setup. But to me this is one of the most important aspects that had to be addressed. A thin half core radiator would not supply enough cooling for me while on the track.

I got quite a bit done this weekend. Finally got my oil cooler setup etc. Also got some bullshit stuff done that I've been dragging my feet on like getting the front suspension back together.

So all thats major stuff to do to finish is the charge pipes, make the exhaust and finish the engine wire harness, and should be good for a test fire. I still have a bunch of small random ass things to button up, but nothing that can't get done in a few days.

Here are some pics of the progress....
