        Maybe you're seeing it different in person, but that valve cover's looking great from here. What brand of paint is that? Between that and the cleanliness of the engine, it really pops in the bay.

            I topcoated the finish with a different paint and the gloss is kinda mottled.

            The paint I used was VHT Crinkle finish in Red. It is topcoated with a High Heat Red as the VHT is has an more orange coloration instead of being a true red.

            I am running a Phearable chipped/tuned P72. There will likely be a changeover to a Hondata setup.

                Thanks. It definitely is a long process. Your car is an inspiration.

                  Content Update:

                  Turns out the rebuilt steering rack had a "skip" that randomly occurred when turning left or right. It was pronounced enough that the entire car would shudder and there was a corresponding shift in the steering wheel.

                  Additionally, the power steering hose leaked at the threaded connection to the rack. The fitting is kinda stripped and I wasn't able to run the system. Having driven the previous car without working power steering and without executing the manual steering rack mod, I was not keen on the high effort needed while also dealing with the skipping rack issue.

                  Since I needed to address these issues, I figured it was a good time to replace the timing belt, seals, add the balance seal retainer, swap out the steel Euro-R oil pan for the BB6 cast aluminum oil pan (the USDM exhaust angle causes the header to rest against the Euro-R oil pan. the cast unit resolved that issue), switch to a P13 driver's side mount bracket and swap the stock flywheel for a Streetlite ACT unit. I also rattle canned the engine bay since the engine was already out.

                        Thanks. I am trying to follow through and complete this build.

                        Thanks. I need to create a diagram for the wiring I think. I'll get around to that at some point.

                          The chassis mods are taken directly from the car that I discarded and likely will see an overhaul in short order. When I was transferring the 5 lug from the old car, I encountered the common seized bolts in the rear LCA/subframe which required me to remove the assembly and have them torched off. I replaced the LCA's with OEM parts I had purchased a long while ago.


                          For now the setup is:

                          Chassis:
                          5 Lug Swap (odyssey front/ prelude hub rear)
                          BC BR Coilovers
                          SPC Balljoint Camber Kit (front)
                          Hardrace Radius Rod bushings
                          Refreshed LCA's Front and Rear (I bought them ages ago and had them laying round when I was swapping the parts over from the old car)
                          New aftermarket Tie Rods


                          Brakes:
                          ABS Delete
                          Goodridge G-Stop Stainless Braided Lines
                          2001-2006 DC5 11.8" Slotted Front Brake rotors
                          DC5/AP1 Front Calipers
                          DC2 Rear brake rotor (cross-drilled and slotted)
                          Hawk HPS brake pads front/rear

                            Awesome thread so far!

                            If you need new terminals for the Toyota EHPS, I have a few new ones left over from the MOQs I had to purchase for mine. I don't have any extra seals for the two 10 AWG wires, though.

                              Thanks for the offer. I had to search the Toyota parts catalog and acquire all of the connectors, pins, and wiring to the complete pigtails.
