Google said those only make 150 after reasonable modification.

While Im sure thats a sizable increase, it needs MOAR powers. I bet 200 would make that car.
I bet 200 would also overpower the brakes, etc. Bet it'd be fun though too.


Hearing those noises come from that car would be excellent lol.

Did ~300 miles round trip in the RSX this weekend. Performed flawlessly.

Swapped out the plugs, old ones didn't look bad. No signs of any oil or trouble with the valve seals. AC was blowing cold, Koyo rad kept the car dead at 183F while cruising.

Feels good man.

First day of furlough not trying to get out into the garage asap lol... Not sure how that happened... Bye bye week.

Audi is about all set though. I need to raise the front up a bit but it doesnt rub at full lock. The racelands feel great tbh. No complaint at all with the ride quality. Likely that 100k blown oem shocks vs something new effect but I'm not mad. As long as they last a while.

The timing project seems to have gone well. No implosion yet. The first couple miles it whirred like mad. I was a bit worried tbh. Seems to have chilled out.

knocks on wood anyways

Man... agreeing to help that kid with his miata was a mistake. 17 total hours in the garage on his car. Felt like I did most the work. Did the coolant reroute and then his timing and waterpump.

Ill take the karma points but... never again.

I met him a few times. Did not get paid at all.

The deal was he was going to come and grab a set of wheels/tires ot mount them for me. He did, and then he offfered to do another set of wheels and tires and he did. Picked everything up from me and dropped it all back off. This was to be in exchange for helping with the coolant reroute. I even paid him $50 on top for how good of a deal it was.

But then yeah, getting to my place Sat morning he said he wanted to do the water pump and timing stuff as well. Didnt think it'd be much extra, so w/e. But yeah, 17 hours total.

Pretty mad he didnt at least offer to send me that $50 back.
