CyborgGT is cool... so far.
I have some awesome news, and some bad news.

The good is that I am finally done collecting parts for this build, with the exception of the ECU and tuning software. When I get closer to dyno day I will talk to my tuner to see if he has experience with Neptune. Otherwise, I know that shop does a lot of work with Hondata. But this morning I was able to place orders for Eagle H-beam rods, Wiseco 11.5:1 pistons (which were out of stock at RaceEng.com and will have to ship directly from Wiseco "on or about November 2nd"), and an ATI street damper. *ED. - ESP traction bar has been ordered as well, to provide clearance for the header.

The bad news is that further progress is now at a standstill because I'm moving in about April, and have no idea if I'll be able to get another place that has the space to work on even maintaining my daily driver, let alone engine-swapping a project car. My budget definitely doesn't allow for the chassis, all of the machine work, and dyno tuning before then, when I'm already setting aside money to furnish this new place right away. It just boils down to luck: there is what I see as the perfect house up for rent right now, but I'm not able to move right this second. Housing cost is on a steady rise in my area, so I just have to hope I get lucky with another ideal home becoming available when I am. Otherwise, it's likely an apartment that may or may not have garages on the property.

What I have left to do:
- Buy the right CB9 (it could take a while for the right one to pop up for sale, too. Hoping to be back in an Accord this summer!)
- Get the head and block machined, including port polish and a re-sleeve
- Talk to my tuner about software options and get it tuned (have the H22 driving by end of summer 2018, maybe?)

For a full list of what I'm cobbling together, check out the original post.


To be continued...

Valve cover #3 is done. You're all probably thinking I'm being ridiculous, but I love that I now have custom takes on the factory black, blue, and red tops!
