So I fixed my brake switch issue. So if you ever come across an issue where, when you press the brake pedal and your dash lights and parking lights come on. You probably installed the wrong bulb in your tail lights. So I fixed my issue by installing the proper bulb which is a dual filament and not single filient. Hopefully this will help people in the future.

apalileo is cool... so far.
Damn Nick, great work! Since I last checked in you've done quite a bit. Glad to see you sorted out the gas tank issues. It makes me worry about my own! The Momo steering wheels is super nice! Gotta love the other half for finally pitching in on the project! The AeroCatch latches came out really good. I've really been considering switching to those in place of the Spectre ones I have.

Great progress on the build, your machine shop does excellent work. That head looks factory new. Glad to see another F22 getting some love!

Thanks man! Ya I love my steering wheel and the aerocatch pins are awesome. They hold the hood perfectly, but they also have locks on them which will help deter thieves.

well... interesting. From an electronics point of view that is messed up. I can see how a single filament always would allow power through but how it makes the other lights activate with the pedal pushed is funny. Glad to see you're still working on her.

I totally agree. When I read up on it, I thought that is to simple to be the problem and it has to be some wires shorting together.

Today I rebuilt the front right caliber with OEM parts since it was leaking. While I was under there, I found my right radius rod to be loose so I tightened it. I also finally put my Ingall Camber kit to use on the front. I pulled the UCA out about 3 degrees which should make the tires wear a lot better. But now the Driver side UCA is banging against the frame. Sometimes you just can't win.

If it becomes to much I will bring the UCA's in 1 degree and see if that helps, or I will simply grind the UCA down. I did notice that I need to replace the upper ball joints which is on my list.

Just so you guys know I'm still around. Made it to Pensacola safely. Now the unpacking begins. I am hoping to talk to blake at 850fabs to see if he can fab up a downpipe and dump tube. Then its back to saving up money and finally start putting it all together.


Im turning my focus on finishing up the suspension refresh. Most of the front is done, but I haven't touched the back.

Thanks Y'all! It still needs a lot of cosmetic work but its not to bad on the eyes.

So when I took the car off the ramp the front bumper got snagged a tad and pulled it off. It wasn't secured fully and no damage was done to it. Plus it is a throw away bumper so I'm not to worried about it.

Anyways, I decided to go ahead and install my bumper quick release and remove all the clips that hold the bumper in place. When I first saw a drift car many years ago have these and how easy it was for them to reconnect a charge pipe that blew, I thought to myself I had to have them for the convenience factor and if my front lip ever gets caught again the rubber ring will snap before the lip cracks (hopefully).

Anyways on to the pictures:
Driver side:


Passenger side (Don't mind the pin striping, I haven't gotten around to removing it all yet):


And just an engine shot. One day I will buy a mig welder and fill all those holes and make the bay look all pretty.

Nothing too exciting was done other then I got the side markers wired back up and working properly. As well as I removed the driver side headlight and bracket and replaced it with one that I pulled from the junkyard during their all you can carry a few months back. Reason I replaced it was due to the hit run that happened to my car 10 years ago. It broke off some tabs and the corner light was held in by a screw. I really want to do a retrofit but i already have enough projects with this car and would like to complete one of them before starting a new one.

I’m starting to really like those clean tucked engine bays. Hey Nick what size tires are you running on your SI 17’s? Also do you get much rubbing?

I am currently running what came on the rims which is 215/45/17. I haven't had any rubbing issues. I do love tucked bays, but i like them more when you don't have all those bolt holes. I keep toying with the idea of buying a welder, but I don't want to dip into the car fund for unnecessary expenses right now.

Got a couple packages today, slowly gathering the remaining pieces to this super long and complex puzzle.

I received my B&M Fuel Pressure Regulator. I ordered the silver one but they decided I needed some purple in my life. I thought about returning it, but a little color never hurt anyone. Shout out to Boost_lee and his famous purple cb.

The second item are Goodrich Stainless Steel brake lines for the front. Big shout out to Mark (NH-503) for hooking me up with a set. I will clean these up and install them in the near future.


I also received my Drill and Tap set for the Marshall static fuel pressure gauge. Nothing exciting but needed:



Then because you guys wanted more whole car pictures, here she sits in the garage:

That’s a sweet ride. The carbon fiber hood goes well with that color.

I would have to agree with you. I think the black offsets the rosewood pretty well.

Today I got some more wrench time in and installed my Marshall's Static Fuel pressure gauge on the fuel rail. Let me tell you this was nerve racking as all the DIYs that I read said they busted through the threads when drilling the hole for the gauge. As I didn't have a spare nut to try again and the only junkyard here only has one cb7 in the whole lot. Though I'm sure the nut is probably the same size for all Hondas. But I was happy my drill has a level on it so I could at least drill straight. I didn't drill all the way through as I didn't want to weaken the threads too much, maybe halfway.


Gauge installed and looks like I am currently getting 34psi to the fuel rail. I was expecting somewhere around 40 especially because I feel the engine is running rich. But either later this week or next week I will install the Adjustable fuel pressure regulator and maybe bump it up or down depending on what the car likes.

Got some progress pictures from Blake(850Fab) today on the progress of all the work he is doing for me.

We decided to go with purchasing a 3" stainless steel doughnut because it will be such a tight fit between the alternator and the turbo for the downpipe. It also saved money on not having to do a bunch of pie cuts. He cleaned it up a bit and looks real good



He then ported the manifold a bit to get rid of some of the casting and weld splatter from when the manifold was built many years ago. I wish I had a before picture



We decided to create more room for the downpipe by removing the Marmon flange that usually comes with a Borg Warner turbos.



So we went with a 3" V-band and I must say Blake did an excellent job. I was a little worried with welding Cast Iron



Mocking up the cut doughnut with the new v-band turbine housing. Looks like it will clear



Now with it all welded up, beautiful tig welds for sure:



With it bolted and mocked up, it sits close to the alternator but with a turbo blanket, some exhaust wrap, it all should be fine. I'm anxious to see how he routes the Wastegate dump tube.



Then I figured I would show my pumpkin carving skills, my daughter asked for Minnie Mouse and I was please to oblige her. Didn't turn out half bad:



I also decided to return the B&M fuel pressure regulator as the more I read about them, the more I kept finding that since it utilizes the stock relief, if you upgrade your pump to a 255 or higher, the regulator will simply be overrun. I found a way on an rsx forum, to create a bypass so that I can lower the fuel psi and help with preventing the relief to be overrun, but at this point I would rather use the money for something else on the build and if I need to down the road upgrade to a AEM fuel rail and pressure regulator.

Lol thanks. I can't wait to hear the turbo spool soon.

Got some more items in the mail today.


If anyone has their technique of breaking in a new motor please chime in. My plan was to obviously unplug the dizzy, and pull the fuel pump fuse, turn over the motor about 10-15 seconds, repeat. Then start it, bring the rpm up to a minimum of 1500 to 2500 and hold it there until temps come up.

That seems the standard across the board and then it varies after that.

Go for a cruise and do 50% throttle to 4500 rpms then let engine coast back down to 20mph. Do this 2-3 times.

Then go 60-75% throttle to 5500 rpm then coast down again to 20 mph. Repeat 2-3 times.

Then go 80% throttle to redline and coast down. 2-3 times

Then go get tuned.

Thoughts?

Obviously I will be doing an oil change after the tune session. Put in 5w-30 conventional. Then another oil change at 1500 same oil. Then at 4000 miles change oil and go full synthetic oil and do normal intervals. I also know not to stay at one rpm for long. i.e set cruise control and cruise at 70 mph for a long time.

Again any feedback would be greatly appreicated.
