    Probably no need to vent, that battery box isn't air tight, neither is the trunk.
    So to get the battery out you have to go under the car? And what hardware did you use under the car, just lock washers and bolts?

      Yes thatís the only inconvenience. But you only have to loosen one side which I can reach without having to jack the car up. But for underneath I used lock washers and nuts.

      This is true about not being air tight. I will hold off on venting outside until someone says I canít race because of it.

        The trunk itself has an air vent so the pressure in the car releases when the doors are shut. I haven't vented mine either, and it was good enough for SCCA autocross.

          Isnít the vent for the trunk on the driver side like under the antenna motor mount?

              The vent is not only for this purpose, but also for the ventilation system. There are slots under the rear shelf panel that allow air to pass more easily from the passenger compartment to the trunk. Fresh air (such as it is) comes in the front (when not set to recirculate), flows from front to back in the passenger compartment, into the trunk, then out that vent.

              Note: The gasket around that vent is a prime source for water leakage into the trunk on that side.

              For the battery tray, couldn't you have mounted an OEM tray (or something similar) to the trunk floor, then mounted the battery in that?

                Yes I initially thought of just simply using the battery tray, however that wouldn't provide any protection for the battery if something were to go flying. I know plastic isn't much better, but its better then nothing.

                Blake got all the piping needed to start finishing up the downpipe and dump tube. He sent me some awesome update pictures of his crazy craftsmanship skills.

                Portion of the downpipe in its raw form:


                Beautiful color on his pie cuts:




                No sugar or barbs in here, his purge caps are awesome for all you tig welders out there:


                Mounted to the turbo, everything is coming together nicely:

                      So Blake put in some overtime and got the downpipe and dumptube done. I should be picking up all the work he did for me this weekend.

                      I will start the next phase of my flight training on Tuesday, which will take up majority of my free time for the next 4-6 weeks. I will try and work a little at a time so when I get my next break in training I can use it to get the car running and tuned.

                      On to more car porn, but first my new shift boot my wife bought me for our anniversary 93 Civic Password:JDM shift boot:

                        & not hard to tell this site is dead, back in the day these posts would blow up the forum with activity!! So I appreciate ya taking the time to post! This thing will be ready for the summer?

                          I was thinking that the other day, how busy the site use to be. I think a lot of people lurk now adays instead of posting. But I enjoy documenting my build so I can go back and see what Iíve done and what I missed.

                          Iím still appreciative of Deev for keeping this site up even though Iím sure itís not bringing in any revenue.

                          My goal is by spring, but it will be based on how task saturated I am with flight school. Once I pick everything up, Iím immediately sending the turbine housing to get ceramic coated.

                          I plan to get the valve cover powdercoated it hydrodipped. I just donít know what I want. Got any ideas?

                              Got all the work back that Blake did for me yesterday and I immediately got to work on prepping the h22 to be pulled. After about an hour or so it is ready to be yanked, however I would have no where to put it. So until I am done swapping parts to the f22, the H will sit in the bay.

                              So I got the plug for an injector resister and cut it to covert from low impudence to high impudence. No need for a picture as all you do is combine all the wires together then plug into harness. I also convert my external Map Sensor connector, to throttle body Map Sensor.

                              I then installed the oil feed, oil pressure light, and AEM Oil pressure gauge tee.



                              I then mounted the intake manifold, installed the ID1050s, fuel rail and the OmniPower 70mm Throttle body, and the omnipower 4 bar Map Sensor. I have a Bisimoto Intake gasket that I keep going back and forth on whether to use it or not. Right now I don't have it installed but I may change my mind later on.

                              [

                              I then proceeded to convert my f22 dizzy to internal coil using my h22a internals. Whiled in the process I discovered that though the electronic guts fit perfectly, the actual dizzy shaft does not. I am sure this is documented somewhere on this forum but I didn't look it up.

                              Anyways here you can see h22 on the left f22 on right, it looks good:



                              Then look at where the rotor hole is, its 30* off from one another f22 on the left h22 on the right. Now I don't know if this makes a difference but I did not want to chance it.



                              F22 dizzy converted to internal coil:



                              Here is where I stopped for the night:




                              Sadly updates will slow down since I start the next portion of my flight training tomorrow for the next 6 weeks and then I get another break for 1-2 weeks before it starts up again.

                              But I will keep working on little by little.

                                Looks amazing! Obviously you are running the turbo oil line feed off the rear splitter too? Sooooooo .......... are those socks or shoes ?
