There is a Lemons race in March at Sonoma and one on the 5 mile full thunderhill track in may. At some point this summer, the date has not been announced, Luckydog is doing a race at Laguna Seca. Lemons is having races at Buttonwillow in September and again at Sonoma in December.

So I'm thinking:
Thunderhill in May,
Laguna Seca whenever it happens, and (change that to Buttonwillow in September, I missed the Laguna Seca registration time and it filled in less than 1 minute)
Sonoma in December.


So I guess I have until May to do all the usual race prep items and swap the manifold and computer, wire up the black box, install the cam, and after the valvetrain is back together, adjust the valves. I've only adjusted valves once before, on my old 911, and I did not fully succeed. I've never replaced a camshaft at all. Should be interesting.



Dang once I say it like that, I've got a lot to do. Better get to it soon.

Mini-Documentary About Our Little Team

Some SF State film students, Brian Churchwell and Nevin Long on the Lemons forums in late November asking for a team to volunteer to be subjects of a documentary they were doing for a journalism class. I volunteered. They followed us around before and during the race. It was fun. This is the result:

That is a great short video. You got some drive time in there and most importantly gave out great info on the Lemons race event. Looks like a lot of fun, and your son being involved is wonderful. I grew up racing BMX in Southern California with my dad and brothers and it is some of my best family memories.

Awesome video, thanks for sharing

I know you were talking about a cluster electrical issue. Check out my cluster issue that's getting worse

https://youtu.be/7nf8-uLuj0E?t=3314

It's worse on right hand turns. I haven't tried to troubleshoot it yet though.

Aventari, your issue could be your ICM in the distributor is starting to fail. My tach was doing the same thing leading up to a total ICM failure.

I see what you did there. Your link is set to play the video starting right before your car passed me. You're just trying to rub it in.

So was that your tach that kept falling down to zero? Our speedo was doing that for a while before it all died.

Well the instrument cluster seems fixed. Tedd replaced the under dash fuse. That was a lot less trivial than it sounds. Since the dash etc is all gone, all the wiring is zip-tied up and out of the way in a dense tangle. Tedd was upside down in the drivers seat, clipping zipties left and right until he uncovered the fusebox, then he had to figure out which fues it was in the dark down there. Once again, this site was helpful. Somewhere on here I found which fuse it was. Thanks! I cannot imagine us doing anywhere near as well without the help of this site and all the contributors past and present.

We also pulled the f22a1 intake manifold and installed the h23a1 manifold and throttle body. We still have to finish hooking up all the vacuum hoses. We need a few adapters and extra lengths of vacuum tube. I'll post a picture after next time we work on it. I still have to swap the ECU and wire the actuator for the butterflys.

Our next project after that will be installing the f22a6 camshaft. MOAR POWER!

So we will have completed the 30hp for $500 list after the cam is installed, but we spent more than $500.
  • F22a6 camshaft $90 on ebay (couldn't find one at the local JYs. Each time I've looked all the CB7-EXs had the cams removed before I got there.
  • H23a1 intake manifold, TB, and blackbox was $155 at the JY
  • ECU PT6 $30 at JY
  • Cheap exhaust $250
  • Muffler was a nice magnaflow discarded from Tedd's '65 Alfa Giulia racecar
  • F22a4 exhaust manifold $40
  • Intake was free with the car
  • various gaskets and seals were about $100
If you assume the muffler and intake were $100 together, that puts us at $765, $665 with the free muffler and intake. Still an excellent price for the gain, but more than $500 now.
