I'm ridin dirty! but...

so after months and months of hard work and research my prelude starts. at first I was going to get pissed because speedo and rpm gauges were not working. I glanced at vtec controller and saw that that was working fine. reading everything from rpms to throttle (which is why its still in the car. to read rpms). I decide to take it for a spin to see how it would drive. Normally when the speedo don't work you can't hit vtec. so I hit second gear and I'm riding along fine and dandy and decided to see if vtec would work. well



































it did. also my gas and temp gauges work just fine. its just the speedo I need working. that will be a springbreak task cause all I have to do is tap into the sensor or the vafc wire to get my speedo to work. don't think that's a big task. at least I don't think it will but who knows.


I've learned a lot. and I feel good about my accomplishment. I've decided that this is something ill never do again. its too much time and headache. but then again... it was my first with not a lot of help. thanks to all my friends that were there when I needed help. all who gave me support even when they couldn't help me physically or technically. the entire prelude community (every single web site that is prelude oriented. yes I'm a member on over 90% of them). most of my technical support came from the forums. mechanics to thank directly are john, derrick, my brother Vied. indirect help came from mainstream performance through a friend. that's how I figured that there are 4 wires coming from the crank sensor.

My set backs. my euro r manifold is not installed. I still have not installed my fidanza short throw shifter adapter. I also have not fixed my window regulator lol. ill eventually get to it.

my goal for the next month or so will be to get the car running at its full potential. that means whatever parts not installed yet will be installed as soon as possible. will this motor be faster than the one blown up? no. will this one make me happier than the last one? yes because of how much time invested.

I will also be getting my suspension for my b day in a couple of weeks. so that way I can bring the rear down a little.

ill post pictures when I get a chance. this probably won't be until weds. or thurs when I have time to clean the car and make the engine bay half way decent.

if I've missed anyone out on my thanks I would like to thank all of you now. My mother asked me how long before this one goes cahboom and we both laughed lol. I need to do my emissions and my tag for 08'. other than that, I think I just need to give the lude some tlc and 'frankinstein' (my boy Rome calls my car. then his next line is usally, ''dude that shyt don't redline fi some reason to bloodclaat!) will be o.k.

Thanks guys. I have a check engine light as well. My speedo works but my RPM gauge won't. I think that's the CL code I'm throwing. I've also went ahead before it got dark her in ATL and trace the RPM signal wire. it's intertwined (sp?) with the wires running to the distributor. One Day next week when I have some time since it is spring break I'm going to figure out where I can run/spice that wire. If I can run it to my vafc and the tach works then I'm set and can take emissions. Since my last post up until now I've been driving out the bad gas that's been sitting in it. I saw my gas light for the first time in 4 and half years. I got a little nervous because I've never gone below a quarter tank much less to see that light shining really bright in my face.

I have pics ridin dirty but I can't find my usb cause my room is such a big pile of junk (school has been stressing me lately). I cleaned up the wiring the best I could. My friends say they couldn't tell that I had to run some of my own wiring if they didn't know I ran them. Hard stuff is done just the little kinks need to be worked out.

The accord type r tranny is far superior to the sh/type s tranny. I feel the LSD. I actually feel it working where as I have to wait until I'm about to die to feel ATTS while corner.. Even with the car is in limp mode it pulls way better than the atts tranny.


Oh! whenever I'm over or around 3000rpms I get a big POP (back fire) out the exhaust and a few small ones follow shortly after. It shocked me the first time it happened because I AM running a cat.

I still have a long list of problems but they are all minor stuff that can be fixed with some time and dedication. My window regulator needs to be replaced. In order for me to stop going through them so often I need to replace the liner for window with a new one. That shouldn't take me more than a couple of hours. That's my next task after I get the CEL to go away.

One step at a time.
