Re: New project

scour the junkyards and take your time take lots of pics and notes on how things came out. check the for sale section frequently and be prepared to spend money QUALITY AINT CHEAP. and most of all take your time and be patient its a project and a hobby after all don't rush to get it done. you can find most if not all the parts on this site for a great price.Majestic Honda - The Internet's #1 Honda Automotive Parts Store

Re: New project

yeah im going to take my time with it, and i am taking a lot of pictures and notes on it, i have a decent f22a that i am using and im currently changing out all of the gaskets, it has a rear main seal leak wich i am currently changing out, and i have a fluctuating idle wich i know isn't the iacv because i have already replaced that. I also bought this car for a learning experience and to teach my self on how to work on cars better =) i purchased it for 300$.

Haha thanks bro, it really was a steal because after i opened up the hood it already had a brand new aem intake and ngk sparks and wires, im probably going to have my buddy take a look at the ecu and make sure it is still good and have him make me a chip to knock out any restrictors. Also are there any good websites for internals for an f22 also? and i want to possible change out the pistons but boreing the cylinder is my last resort cause i heard you have to be perfect and its a pain in the ass

Re: New project

we also thought that the car was sitting on cut springs because it was sitting at around a 4 inch drop but after i jacked it up and the wheels dropped i noticed i have APC suspension all the way around, not sure if its good cause i cant find ratings but that will save me money for the time being

Re: New project

i wouldnt try boring out an engine just yet by your self
but you are supposed to hone it when you change out the the pistons (someone correct me if im wrong its my own practice and it works for me)
as for replacement pistions are you looking to go OEM or forged and are you looking to keep stock compression or go higher?

and the answer to your question for the site

Re: New project

I actually think im going to run high compression for this car, and eventually get an h22 and run low compresion for turbo. I also need to find new front wheel hubs
