apalileo is cool... so far.
Thanks for sharing that list of items. I've actually saved that exact exhaust setup in my amazon wish list (with a CARB compliant direct fit cat which is more expensive).

Keep up this kind of attention and it'll defnitely surpass another 100K.

Also, great choice on exhaust. I have a friend that has it on his sedan, it sounds really nice. It's deep sounding, and not excessively loud. He's had it on his car for at least a couple years, not a single problem.
I figured it wasn't too expensive considering the price of a complete replacement factory exhaust system. And a little power increase over the A1 will be nice too. Not to mention longevity, quality and no leaks.

Of course. And that's what I'm shooting for!

I'm in the process of setting the valve lash. But it started sprinkling on me. Waiting for it to clear up weather wise. Put the VC back on until it does. Worse case scenario I finish it tomorrow.

Also working with the heat shield for the alternator as can be seen. It's been rattling a bit sometimes or I suspect it of doing so anyhow. Probably caused when I changed the alternator about 8 or so months back.

I resealed the OEM valve cover gasket that was on it and sealed it back up with four spots of Hondabond in the appropriate locations.

I found out that the lower tube seals are starting to seep. Not to be unexpected at 186k.

The issue is... I don't have a torque wrench. So... I'm in the market for a torque wrench.

I have the lower tube seals. They came with the Fel Pro gasket set. I think I'm going to opt for OEM though.

And because I have to replace the lower tube seals there is no need to set the valve lash. That's why I buttoned it back up.

I want a really nice digital torque wrench. My budget is about $150.
