Re: :::ton3::: 1994 VTEC

I haven't been on in a while because I've been busy with the new baby and work. However, I am still going to finish my build. I've been going to the shop after work lately and helping move things along. THe shop went through some rough times and my Prelude suffered as a result. Anyhow, we're working on finishing it up and things aren't too far from completion.

Anyhow, yesterday just as I was about to leave the shop, this guy walks in asking about the shop and what not. Then asks if we have any H22s. Hmm...a prelude guy huh? So one of the workers points to me and tells him that I have a supercharged prelude. The guy asks me about it and then we realize...hey you're t0n3/brodie94!

But yea man, on that bracket if you could send me the picture and any dimensions Ill get to work on that for you!! Also, do you have a Facebook? If so, add me (Dylan Stewart) and check out D.P.E.G.

Re: :::ton3::: 1994 VTEC

Hey Brodie, I actually found the bracket I was looking for and was able to secure everything. Thanks for offering to make one for me though. It was very cool that we got to meet like that.

I also had an extra tension pulley and installed it to provide extra grip at 12lbs. There's not much left at this point. So, I should be breaking it in this week. Here's a little show of the progress.

Re: :::ton3::: 1994 VTEC

Awesome man!!!! Yea I was waiting on ogsmakdad to send me the drawings to make one, but I'm glad you were able to find yours!! Hit me up when you're ready to cruise it. I think mine is done with the shop. I will try and pick it up this week sometime and we could roll out to meet all the D.P.E.G. guys.

Re: :::ton3::: 1994 VTEC

Almost finished. It's been a long, bumpy road and I have some stories for you all when I update this thread. At the moment, the e85 is in and she's running strong. However, my tuner still has some kinks to work out.

Boost is holding at 11psi, but VTEC isn't kicking in, Yo. I was expecting to get 12lbs of boost, so I'm going to have to figure out what I did wrong there. Even on the basemap it's night and day from my previous set up(much stronger) and I will get a dyno video up as soon as we finish. My tuner thinks we will get 350whp pretty easy. I'm not going to hold my breath though. However, anything less than 300whp and I may have to blow it up.

Re: :::ton3::: 1994 VTEC

I stopped by the shop on the way home from work today, but the dyno was in use. I had a long day at work so I won't be spending all night waiting for them to finish. Hopefully, we can get on it tomorrow. I'll have the video up as soon as possible.

Brodie, I'll definitely hit you up as soon as it's done and I have some free time. Work is trying to get their money's worth out of me and then some.

Re: :::ton3::: 1994 VTEC

Soooo close.
I put the car on the dyno yesterday, hooked up the wideband and was waiting on my tuner. Unfortunately, other things got in the way. So we ended up leaving it for today. We didn't want to rush and do a poor job last night.

I will have the dyno video/numbers tonight.

Re: :::ton3::: 1994 VTEC

Alright, Dylan already knows this, but the rest of you...
No video yet. We had an oil leak from the oil pressure sending unit yesterday. So, we never got started on the tune. Some Hondabond was applied about 30 minutes ago and I'll be heading over there once I get off work in another 1.5 hours.

So, I say for like the umpteenth time...we should be tuning it today. Once it's dry and we're able to confirm there are no leaks we'll have at it. Wish me luck.

But you're actually going to fix the leak properly ASAP, right?

Re: :::ton3::: 1994 VTEC

I had to play Find The Leak a couple times before my D-day..oil pressure sensor, oil cooler o-ring, brand new cam seal for some reason..Hope you get it pinpointed without much trouble.

Re: :::ton3::: 1994 VTEC

Soooo...how's everyone been? I figured I should come back and update my thread on the happenings with the Prelude.

After much time and effort, the car was running rather well. I had the car home and would drive it occassionally and never "got on it" because my tune wasn't where it needed to be. However, I just really needed to get the car home. After a few months I got some white smoke and thought it might be the head gasket. So, I took her to Jotech (pretty good shop here that started with Hondas and is "big time" now doing GTRs). They made an exception for me because they wanted to see the car and already knew me.

Well, after having them do a leak down and compression test things are not good. Not good at all. I don't have the numbers here with me, but only one cylinder is good. All the other three are between 30-60% on the leak down and the compression is super low on all but one cylinder.

Basically, the motor is toast. So, it was fun while it lasted and as much as it hurts to say it, I'm letting her go. I could swap in a fresh H22 and drop the boost back down to 6psi, but I'm not going to. My heart isn't in it anymore and I think someone else might enjoy picking up where I left off.

I don't want to part out the car so I'm going to post it locally this weekend and see how it goes. I figure with the:
Supercharger
S300 V3
Two sets of wheels
Mishimoto radiator/thermostat
ID 1000 injectors
Walbro 255
Stereo/system
Clean interior
A/C
NRG Quick release/steering wheel
ACT 6 puck
etc...
...that someone will pick her up.

I have to say that my time spent on these forums was awesome. I learned a lot and even met some cool people. Both online and in person. These cars are great and if I didn't have other priorities, you better believe I would hold on to this car. I still get thumbs up, nods and questions when I drive her. Sigh.

Re: :::ton3::: 1994 VTEC

Man, that really sucks!!! Dratz!

I had to abandon projects a long time ago for reasons you cite. Faced with leaving the car(s) outside, under some $15 blankey called a car cover for who knows how long knowing they'll just get worse, I chose to pass them on to others.
Cannot honestly say any of them went to a proper place, because with each one the next chapter did not have happy endings.
I say that in hopes you can or will be somewhat picky with who gets the honor of owning your car next.

Best of luck with lifes those other priorities!!!

This is not a goodbye hopefully, but a see ya later.

Re: :::ton3::: 1994 VTEC

Thanks. Indeed it does suck. And you're right, it should be considered an honor. I would have jumped at the chance to have a car like this to start with. I imagine I'll get a lot of "hits" once I post it and will start the screening process.

I'll probably still lurk around just to see what others are doing. I don't know how long it will take for me to have the want to get back into Preludes. Time will tell.

Prelude broke my 20 year itch for another 66 mustang.
I still owe my son a thanx or an arse whipping one for letting me drive his 91 prelude.

But like you said time will tell.
You may do totally different type car someday with your kid.
