CyborgGT is cool... so far.
I finally had time to watch the videos. One thing I'd recommend is to double-check the nuts holding the intake manifold to the head after a couple hundred miles, because the temp affects the thermal gasket's shape/thickness. I had some loosen and back out on my Bisimoto gasket.

I'm loving your excitement, too. I'm coming up on seven years since I last drove a CB, and am dying to get back into one. My RSX is huge fun, but I miss my old sedan.

Would love to get more viewers on your channel. I know my GoPro4 has that option.
Haha, thanks man! That was a completely candid reaction! I can certainly do some more time-lapse style shots with the iPhone, like I did for the timing side teardown. Certain things are too hard to film, like greasing up the rack for the manual rack conversion due to how I would ruin the phone with grease and old PS fluid. I have to work also on posting more regularly. My most popular videos are the ones with either the catchy thumbnails showing major overhauls or the racing videos. You have to keep 'em coming back!

If you click the link in my sig, that first post details what I've purchased for my exhaust system. It's a bit complicated, and very experimental: mufflers/resonators will easily be changed if I don't like the sound.
I am definitely getting those slip joints welded also. I know its all in storage, but do you remember how long the bottle resonator is compared to the UQ? Also, let me know how well that streetpower muffler muffles the sound. That's the series I have, just 2.5" inlet.

I will check those for sure. Luckily, the Golden Eagle variant is not quite as thick, so there is more meat for the nuts to grab onto. I think I had one or two loose ones when I last tore the F22 out. SEVEN YEARS! Dang, for some reason, I thought you were driving yours when I first joined in 2014.

I have this photo from when I laid out my full exhaust. They look pretty much the same length. The bottle's widest section might be an inch or so longer:



I'm really trying to be driving this winter, and I'll be sure to get videos of how it sounds. Fingers crossed...

*ED. - Found a saved order receipt in my e-mail, which details the body of the bottle resonator to be 4" x 15.5", 18" long overall. That 15.5" has to include the space where the body width tapers off, though, and I doubt you're getting much sound absorption there. This compared to the UQ (same 2.5" in/out) that is a 6.5" x 4.75" oval, 9.75" long body, 13.75" long overall.

Track video baby!



Word to the wise, if you go to the track with 5 year old performance tires, you will be disappointed in the car's handling! Also, make sure you figure out how to get an alignment done beforehand as well! The manual rack is definitely a different feel out there, so it is hard to tell exactly what makes it so much more difficult to handle. I will say this, however, that motor is a monster in the shadows. With just the basemap from John Vega, which needs a little adjusting (idle AFRs are 12.5 and WOT AFRs are around 14.0), the car is running three seconds faster than the old F22 setup even with all of the handling issues.

These will be addressed before I go back out:

1. Bridgestone Potenza RE-71s 205 50R 15
2. Proper alignment
3. John Vega remote tune!!!!!
