... dropped Sally off at the tuners today to get the following done. (thanks to Raven AutoSports!)

- oil change
- inspection sticker
- re-tune, up the HP

Garage feels empty without Sally....

Well lay down the bad news first. After that the good news may lift our crushed spirits a little bit.

Bad news is....

Car is at the dyno shop (big thanks out to Raven AutoSports) and put larger injectors in her and strapped her down. She is slipping the clutch. ..... we are hitting 410HP at 7000rpms anything more and it slips. The hardware is rated for 600+ HP so ... this is going to be an installation issue or clutch config issue. I like the catch point near the floor and don't see any issues with that. I've never had issues with it but did notice it's not spinning 2nd and 3rd like it use to. .... so not sure what the issue is. I already decided to let them rip it open if needed.

I want 501HP on a dyno graph. That is my goal.

That's a tall order, and IMO it's too much power for... Ahhh, nevermind... Enjoy the damn thing.

I like your goals, and we know they are achievable. Let us know how it drives at 501 with a clutch that holds.

Oh I agree, def. too much power. I'll probably dial it back down or have a low / high setting. I'll end up using boost by gear and make it manageable. But always wanted the graph.

Time for the good news I guess. The shop called and asked if I wanted to put the car in a car show. (I haven't done a car show in 10+ years). But I said ya sure. This was Raven AutoSports booth. Some old / new / cool of course. The show was hosted by Driven, which was touring Canada and doing shows. There tons of awards but sadly Sally got none. She lost the "Best Honda" award to the red S2000. Enjoy the pics

Nice bro. Did you have one of the oldest rides in the building? Besides that sweet patina’d VW beetle in the background of one of your pics?

Yep & Yep, and I'd say I was the oldest honda there. & still disappointed Sally didn't win some form of award.
