Well Sally is still running top notch! Spinning 2nd and hooking in 3rd. The big news is I ordered injectors and booked the appointment to up the HP! I'm hoping to get between 450-500HP. This will all happen the last week of August.




I also started working on the tail lights again. I found some chemical shit that will take the paint off easily but if you let it drip or stay on too long it will chemical burn the glass. So this is me trying to save the chemical burned lens I did by accident.

It’s about time you up the boost on this thing! What chemicals did you use and I hope your wore gloves! What injectors did you go with?

Going to go with RC injectors actually, give them a try.

I used this stuff and OMFG Warning, do not get this shit on your skin! Even a little splatter the first 5 seconds your like "I can take it". Next 10 seconds you're running to the sink because you can feel it burning through your skin
I'm going to try one more lens, but tape off the areas and hose it off right away.

Lmao “really works” clever name. I used aircraft paint stripper and that stuff was no joke would burn like a mofo. Are you upping to 1000cc? I haven’t tried RC, but they been around for a very long time. I do enjoy my ID 1050s but you have to either get the plug and play kit or do some wire splicing and delete the resistor box. Only complaint I have with them is the actual plug and play kit. They don’t clip onto the injector as securely as I would have liked.

Ya, They will be 1000CC. They will be high impedance and I'll be ditching the resistor box. Talking with the tuner I guess you just splice the wires into one. He noted that low impedance injectors are simply too old and easier to cut out any items that may fail and go with high tech.

Low impedance are actually a much more accurate injector when used with a proper driver circuit. However, as the tuner stated, they are older and there are more items that may fail, the resistor box being the only other part.....

Here is how I have wired a few friends resistor box deletes in the past.

High impedance is actually low tech, OEM's don't want to deal with the low impedance drivers and tuning. High impedance is just easier and cheaper!

You know it's too bad you don't live closer GhostAccord (believe you are in NB)

Yes, Saint John NB to be exact. I don't get to NS very often. We usually head west or if we head east it's to PEI.

Earlier this year I was thinking about hitting the dyno @ Raven Autoports to tune up the Ridgeline. Unfortunately it's been out of commission for the past 2 months as I rebuild the heads.

I use to fly into St John all the time on my way over to Europe. Y’all winters are no joke, especially the wind!

John all I did to bypass the resister box was go to the junkyard, grab a resister box cut the plug, solder and heat shrink all the wires together and be done with it. Then you still retain the OEM harness integrity and is easily reversible.

I think you probably few into St. John's Newfoundland. The winters here in Saint John, New Brunswick, a little bit further south west, aren't quite as bad. We still live in shanties and igloos though.

Went and got the alignment done at Acura yesterday. Was funny to watch the guy driving it in stall it twice

And... started to tackle some small issues today. 1. The horn doesn't work. I do have 12V to the horn wires so... think it's the replacement cheap unit I bought off ebay. Reason I bought it was to clean things up, make it look better.





haha, and sure enough. The old 25 year old OEM horrible looking horn still works, but the new one bought does not. Now, do you think I'm going to remember where I put the connector for this


Did vinyl wrap on gas door to see what it would look like...

I have a couple better looking OEM horns if you're interested.

Non-matching fuel door looks like a patch on the side IMHO.

Ahh, just going to go down to crappy tire store and buy one. And I agree on the gas door lid
