Nicely done! How does a b18c not throw a red flag on the Del slow? If they can get away with that you could probably get a away with an H22 in there. Nicely done, sorry to hear about your ex-girlfriend stealing your go pro equipment.

Yeah I'm okay with the Del Slow having a B18c and everything, but having it in class B is pretty ridiculous. At LEAST put it in class A.

The other ridiculous class B car is an 80's RWD Celica with a 250+hp V8 in it. That thing is just crazy fast.

Oh well it's all for fun anyway I'm not butthurt about it

I tried to smog the car yesterday, so I put on the old catalytic converter and took it to my dude. I don't have the EGR hooked up, and it failed on NOX and HCs pretty bad.

My guy says I need the EGR connected, just the cat alone won't get the emissions low enough

So I need to do that. The problem is that I actually blocked the EGR port in the intake manifold becuase I didn't want any exhaust getting in there and heating up stuff. So I have to remove the intake manifold for that..

Also the car was overheating bad on the dyno, and I remembered the radiator fan wasn't coming on. It overheated at the end of the race too.

So I checked the fan: works, fan relay: works..
Turns out I forgot to connect the temp sensor plug. Whoops. I do love easy fixes like that though.

Quick update, we're gonna be racing at Laguna Seca again with Lucky Dog Racing on July 13-14

Right now the tranny is apart while we repair what I thought was a bad 3rd gear synchro, but it turns out the synchro spring broke.. I don't know how.. I got new ones to put in though.



Also I adjusted the valves and reinstalled the straight pipe cat bypass.

After that the list is relatively short..:

change oil/filter
bleed brakes
bleed clutch
Current sound check from a 3rd party and submitted to Lucky Dog prior to arriving at the track less than 88 db 50ft away
Add 2nd muffler? ^^
Check on fire system expiration
Get H22 or H23 upper intake plenum and throttle body
Ebay large throttle body
Get new tires
Modify seat back brace to be wider
Add car numbers to front and rear bumpers, 4" high
Check window net for SFI tag and expiration
Get seat belts re-certified, they're over 2 years old

Last month we got the transmission rebuilt and installed, at first it was locking when shifting from 3rd to 4th, and it really worried me, but once it was installed and filled with fluid, and the motor run a little bit everything smoothed out!
Love the cheaty Quaife diff and Prelude ratios.

After that adjusted valves.

Today I fabricated a dead pedal and sheetmetal headlights. The dead pedal will be SO NICE, I often find myself on track with the lap belts too loose and me sliding down and the firewall too far away to push my ass back into the seat. This will fix that.

Then installed the H22 upper plenum and throttle body from Ebay. I still need to set/check the TPS as the idle was doing the bouncy thing until I unplugged the IAC.











Oh yeah, I also installed a 2 post lift in my garage I got it for my self at the beginning of the year and a sort of 40th birthday gift to myself

I FUCKING LOVE HAVING A LIFT

Getting read for the Laguna Seca race, only 3 weeks left.. still have a huge todo list..


Anyway tonight I modified the H23 throttle body and set the TPS voltage.

Question: is it okay to have .45 volts closed throttle and 4.65v at full throttle? I know you're supposed to have 4.5 volts WOT, but the range is too big now.

Also added an ebay intake for $30



Stock F22 tbody:


modified H23 tbody - ported the inlet and ground the shaft and rounded the butterfly edges.. locktited the butterfly screws:




Comparison







ebay intake

Can’t wait to hear how it performs. What’s the theme of the car this year?

Honda manual states that it should read "approximately" 0.5v at closed throttle and 4.5v at wide open throttle. You are good with the voltage readings that you have listed.

Thanks GhostAccord, I'll leave it like this and go for some test drives this weekend

Theme is the same "Takata R&D: Recalls and Defects"

I've got too much mechanical work to do on it to bother with updating the theme and the rest of my team (with the exception of my buddy Benino) doesn't really do anything
