This is actually my first time going v-band as well. I never had an issue with my tail gaskets but I only had my previous motors last 6-9 months. Hoping I get many years out of this one.

bjaccord is cool... so far.
Today I got my $12.00 crank pulley tool in the mail and after a little fighting got the crank pulley bolt out. Still waiting for a special order cometic head gasket to arrive. I will probably remove the head from the h23a3 this weekend and check it out. I don't plan on using it though, as my h23a1 head is improved (ported, polished, o/s valves, crower springs/retainers, etc). Some internet sites say the EDM h23 has larger valves than the usdm version, I will measure to see if true.

I have been so excited lately about the car though, I can't wait to turn the key and fire it up!
Turbo H23a3 build has begun
