... 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.

Quite a few nice looking cars at that show. Your CB fits right in there. It looks to show very well for a classic Honda with tasteful upgrades.

Thanks Ghost.

Anywho... change of story on Sally.

- She does not have a slipping clutch. Tuner changed his mind on this. States that after looking into it more closely the tires were spinning on the dyno. He got her up to 420WHP and spinning the tires at 6500rpm. Recommends a wider tire and something software (I will admit the current tires are a really hard compound)

- All clutch specs and installation was done proper. So no issues there. I think I'm going to adjust the pedal closer to the floor again, just a wee bit.

- Tuner put new 1000CC plugs in, and deleted resistor box. On the way home she sure spins 3rd no problem, left a 20' black mark getting on the highway. But something is wrong.., running way to lean... like 16.5 a/f , and this will need to be looked at.

- Tuner also wants a meth kit installed to go with more HP.

So....... goal now is to collect some $$$ for next summer and then try to hit 500HP. For now we are back around the 400HP mark...

Glad to hear it wasn’t your twin disk! I too eventually plan to introduce meth. I was looking into cooling mist but they have moved to the UK. Snow Performance seems pretty good as well. 420 is still awesome numbers for a FWD.

16.5 is high I’m assuming that’s while in boost? You should be around 12.8-13.2 ish while in boost.

Ya, 16.5 A/F while driving down the highway....

Tuner and I both confused. He stated car ran fine when they had it and on the dyno / highway. I am confused as to why I'm seeing 16.5 A/F. Even on a short run I did the other day. Fine on WOT but just cruising... something is not right.



62mph, TPS 19%, 2500rpm, and a lamda of 1.14.....

Tuner noted it shouldn't be doing that, he didn't modify the tables that much.

I opened the trunk today for the first time since i got it from the shop
( i'm thinking these two things are related... )




Anywho... on the weekend I was helping a friend with his cb7. (He's not on here and has had many cb7s.) He's doing a H22 install on this 92 coupe ex. My job was to solder / run the 3 extra wires for the knock, VTEC solenoid & VTEC pressure switch









There was 3 of us, put in a good 5-6 hours. Still a lot of work to do...time to go home.......



(Oh, does anyone remember how wide of a tire we can use. I believe it's 225?)

You can put a 235 on the front. But the back a 235 will just barely rub the knuckle, so a 225 should be good on the rear.

hmmm i already have a rubbing issue with 215 on the rear (+lowered +camber). So think I'll try 225s on the front though.

Well problem solved. Tuner forgot some checks and re-tuned some of the high end. She's back to a nice 400WHP, laying black marks in 3rd and fun to drive
