Surprise!

well to some of you its not. This isnt exactly how i had this planned to surprise everyone but whatever! for the past 3 months a little something has been going on with my turbo lude! and its finally done!

I would've liked to get more pictures but i hated going up there after a while...

so heres the story of the past three months!

i got some parts from Rory...

*Golden Eagle Sleeved h22a block


*CP Pistons



*Crowler Rods


then i bought

*Competition Clutch- 6 puck (can handle 600 lbs trq)




*Greddy Boost Controller


*And all other necessary parts for the build

So i bring to Hung (my mechanic) everything that i have. Well he ordered oem bearings for it and it took 2 weeks for them to get here... ok they get here and they dont fit, so he reorders them. Another 2 weeks and they come in, guess what, those dont fit. So i call Rory, and hes like oh well its a 4th gen h22 (were over here thinkin its for a 5th gen). So the whole time Hung was ordering bearings for an h22a4 and finally we ordered bearings for the right block which is an h22a. And in between that time he has to have the block sent off to a machine shop to get bored out.

Well im thinkin... if theyre waiting on parts for my white lude... they can start dropping the old motor from the white one into the black one. So they do. Well we run into big problems. The base motor wont match up to the SH tranny. So that took up another weeks time because they tried to figure it out. So i tell them to just forget it... ill get another tranny for it soon.

So everything finally gets here. The build of the block begins!!

Mike (another mechanic) puts together the block



well that gets done and hung says my head is not back from the machine shop (getting new retainers, springs, and a little bit of a clean up). so we wait another week and it finally gets it. And i guess thats when the motor gets put together.



Well for about 2 weeks or so... nothing is done to my car. I wait and wait and wait and finally a week and a half ago they bring my car in!!!
(my poor car waiting lol)

So they start the final drop in. It was supposed to be done last friday. Well then Hung tells me that I need to come in friday after work to make sure everything is going good because nwo itll be done saturday. Well guess freaking what...

I walk in friday i asked, "how are things go....... WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED TO MY CAR!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!"

there are huge chunks of paint taken out on my driver side door and rear panel... and i start freaking out... they act like its no big deal pretty much ignoring me and finally Hung says... "oh maybe it was the metal sheet your car was parked on..." UM HELLO... WHY WOULD YOU PARK MY CAR OVER A METAL SHEET!!!?!???" so my driver side has to be repainted...

so saturday rolls around... the motor is in but they cant get fire. It was because i had an obd2 distributor on an obd1 motor. soooo we decide were either gonna have to buy a new distributor or new oil pump. Either way its gonna suck. We decide to just get a new distributor and a guy Hung knows wont be up there until tuesday to rewire eeverything.



Well monday i had to go up there to get some parts from my boyfriend mikes motor because he took his car somewhere else. Im hanging around and notice a scratch on my back bumper. then look up and key marks ALL over my taillight. THEEEEEEN, i look at my trunk and theres key marks all across the back of it. walk around and start seeing key marks all over the passenger side... thats when i really flipped. NOOOOOOOOOOOOW THE WHOLE CAR BASICALLY HAS TO BE REPAINTED!!!!! whatever...

No call tuesday from them... im pretty much giving up by now and im like whatever. Well wednesday i decide to go up there and guess what...

my car is off the lift and out in the parkin lot. hmmmm, Hung walks up and i said so "whats the deal?" and he says, "its good!" SO FINALLY ITS DONE!!! i take it for a drive around the neighborhood. The clutch is quite different! it was amazing! but i have to leave it up there a couple more hours cuz he has to drain the antifreeze and change the oil one more time.

Well he also tries to ask me, "why would only your car get keyed out of the 40 cars that are here?" like im lying about it happening there or something... ok buddy... dont play games with me cuz we ALL know that crap happened there.

Anyways... i go up there at 5 to get her and finally get to drive her away!

So now im gonna break in the motor for a thousand miles or so and go get her tuned! im going to be running between 20-23 psi on race gas (thatll be my high boost). and probably 14 on pump gas for low boost. Im hoping to get 500 whp. and i know i wont have traction but i just want that!!!

so wish me luck!!! sorry for the super long read!!

it sounds sick, but you better sue the mechanics to get your car repainted cuz that's bull.

if you don't get them to pay, it's like they're doing this to you. .

congrats. I know how frustrating it can be when someone is building your car. my car was 8 hours away in canada for 9 months........ at least you could drive over to your shop and see your car lol.

bring that lude up here and my cousin will hook that paint up. he's sik.

Sounds like an incredible build. I was wondering you think it's easier to boost a S model rather than the SH?

You need some new turn signals. Those you got look rougher than my stockers. After this, I hope you're working on the suspension so you can get traction. Thanks for finally exposing this stuff cause it was killing me keeping it to myself.

UPDATE!!!!

Well yesterday was my birthday and i decided what a great day to get the lude tuned!!! many of you know that i decided i wasnt going to boost as high as i was planning when i first started the build. But i did turn it up from before !!

So yesterday i took it to a place near here called adams automotives. they tuned my car the first time it was ever tuned before mase tuned it! we ran into some major problems in the morning. The morons at my old mechanics put the rockerarm shaft in backwards so i didnt have vtec. that took a little while for them to fix and i almost thought my birthday was going to be ruined and not have my car tuned. well they got it fixed and started the tuning.

i decided to go 14 pounds on low boost on pump gas. the top numbers for that came out to be 351 with like 290 tq.

then high boost
i decided to keep it below 20 and go with 19 psi. on 114 octane race gas. it finally came out to 428 with corrective timing and 337 lbs of tq!!!!

im very pleased with it. its running absolutely amazing!!

ill get the videos and pictures up tomorrow!!
