S2000 CMC

Pros:
- Reservoir resides on the cmc itself making for a cleaner look installed in our cars.

Cons:
- None

RSX Brake Booster and BMC

Pros:
- Smaller foot print, resides lower and closer to the shock tower, again for a cleaner look installed in our cars.

Cons:
- BMC bore is 7/8" this is larger than the standard non ABS Accord BMC which is 13/16". It is smaller though than the 92-93 EX/SE - Prelude 1" BMC.

I'm alright with the middle ground, for how it cleans up the engine bay a bit.

Finally my ESP.net bars have been repowder coated. They look absolutely amazing. A much closer match to Lola this time around. John at ESP just got them sent out today. I'll have them by next Wednesday. I'll let you guys know what the color is once I go through the emails again. I can't remember off the top of my head. I looked through every single option that was offered by 2 companies that ESP uses. All in all I probably went through 400-600 colors to decide on the one that I was ecstatic about.

ESP 1


ESP 2


I have been working on the car the last few nights. Just nothing really worth showing right now. All I've been doing is scrubbing the 23+ years of junk off the bottom of the car. I wouldn't do nearly as much of this as I am. Except for a week and a half ago Lola decided to dump about a gallon and a half of gasoline out of the return fuel line onto the floor overnight. While doing this it also soaked the bottom of the car. Well needless to say, the garage has still been smelling like gasoline fumes because of the gasoline that soaked into the oil/dirt on the bottom of the car. So the drivers side has been cleaned from the firewall to the gas tank. The passenger side won't go quite as far back, but I do want to remove most of the junk that has built up onto the car. Last night after finally getting all the junk off to the gas tank, it seems to have actually gotten rid of 95% of the smell from the garage. Hopefully tonight when I get home it will all be gone. I'll get some pictures of what the bottom of the car looks like when I'm finished, but for the time being there really just isn't a lot to show.

Alright so a bit of an update. I still haven't had time to get the camera out to the garage with me, so I don't have any pictures yet.

I've been spending my time prepping the engine bay for the engine. Trying to get everything bolted back into place before the engine is in the way. I think everything is finally wrapped up. Also I finished up my last bits of wiring that I'm going to do. I was going to make the vtec subharness myself, but I am so done with wiring at this point that I'm just going to order one from Rywire. Also I'm going to pickup some OBD2 to OBD1 injector wires. I don't want to convert my harness from OBD2 back to OBD1. Besides this will allow the option in the future to run either style. Once those are in the wiring is complete.

Last night I worked on getting in the wiring for the car to be able to start as a manual being an auto car originally. Also I built the extension harness for the resistor box, and mounted it up under the dashboard. I finalized the locations of the fog light harness. I still need to mount the relays under the dash. I have a plan for them already I just haven't gotten to it quite yet. Also the dashboard is on hold because I'm still waiting to wire in vtec. Because of this I haven't gotten the blower motor in, I just don't want to fight around it when trying to run wires. I did actually put the dashboard into place though. As I was really tired of moving around it all the time. It actually ended up on the living room floor for about a week. GF didn't really enjoy that so I just threw it back into the car so it wouldn't be taking up space elsewhere.

On Monday night I finally managed to get my old oil pump off the engine and to the machine shop. Yesterday I dropped off the front main seal so they can press it in as well, while they are pressing in the KS balance shaft delete stuff. Also the $30 eBay F20B oil pump is almost brand new according to specs. It is on the tight side of new specs from Honda. That is probably one of the best $30 investments I've made in a long time. Tonight after work I'm going to pickup the oil pump and hopefully get the engine into Lola tonight. We shall see on that goal though. As I need to get the oil pump installed, the pan installed, the timing belt and all that reinstalled, and adjust the valves, before it's ready to actually go in. That and I have to run out of town to go see my Grandma tonight and a few other things. So needless to say time is already lacking tonight. Either tonight or tomorrow night I'll get some pictures taken and post them up.

The PLM Tri-Y header showed up at Grandma's last night. Not really sure how I screwed up the shipping on that. Oh well. Also I'm hoping my SCE header gasket showed up there as well. They didn't give me any tracking info on it, so I don't know where they decided to ship it to. Last night I got my ESP.net bars back. They look great but still aren't a match to Lola's paint. They have more green in them than blue. They are still a nice teal for sure, just not what I was hoping for. Always hard to judge color's from pictures and the internet. Next time I'll pick the other color, we had settled on. The color on the bars is currently Alpine Teal, next time I think I'm going to go with Pole Star Green. I only opened one of them last night. I asked John if he could make an alternator wire tie down bracket, which he did for me. Tonight I'll get the rest of the stuff out and take some pictures of it.

There is other stuff that has been done, but I just can't really remember all of it right now. Oh one other thing of note, I ordered a clutch line from Rywire. I got the B/D series clutch line for a S2K master cylinder. I've gotten it installed and it looks amazing in the bay. So much better than the OEM lines and damper. It goes straight from the master to the slave, so hopefully this should improve the pedal feel a bit as well.

Grumpys93 seems to have made some friends!
Will,
What's the reasoning on going with the B/D series clutch line and not the H/F series? Simply because it's shorter? Or the 45 degree angle?

The reasoning for the B/D series cable is that is has an M10 fitting on the CMC side and also the 45* bend. Whereas the H/F series cable has a M12 fitting on it. The S2000 CMC has an M10 fitting on it so, the stuff for our car's won't bolt onto it. Rywire recommended buying the B/D series cable although it is 10" shorter they said other people have bought and used it for our cars. Though the routing might get a bit interesting since it is 10" shorter.

I think I've found a good way to route it in the bay currently. I won't know for sure though until the engine is in the bay. That will be answered tonight after I get the timing belt put on it, then it's going into Lola. I'll get some pictures tonight, the last few nights I've just been so busy, by the time I come out of the garage it's already midnight. I get up at 5:40 for work, so there really just hasn't been time to take pictures.
