Don't lump me in with them. I'm an enthusiast of mechanic design, be it engines, weaponry, or productive machinery. Not a guy with a wrench that reads the marketing garbage AFE/insert other "enthusiast" brand that can't legally warranty half of their products.

 

I fail to see a correlation between people screeching variations of "forced induction is more efficient!!! Reclaimed energy!!!" and anything I've said.

If you can't be civil. Please leave

 

Edit. That goes for everyone in the thread

I've got to get and finally do an oil change. I'm just going to get my usual castrol with whatever decent filter is on sale.

Should I run standard GTX or GTX high mileage? 

 

my poor 2000 Civic EX is going to hit 63,000 at the start of july.

A few weeks after I'm going to hand it to my shop for a full inspection and most likely a brakes change given that at around 58 thousand last year it was coming up on due.

63k? Not even broke in yet lol. 

 

Just run a synthetic oil of your choice and if brakes need to be done, brakes need to be done. Look at the pads or trust your mechanic to look at them for u

I've started a new 'project', got myself a new engine (1300cc, dual port) for my Beetle. It needs a thorough cleaning and some new seals, but if it's done I'll be going from 34hp to 44!

No, I'll keep everything stock for now. I took the picture during my disassembly process, the oil and grease you see there could well be 40 years old :D

Dual Weber is of course the ultimate form of badassery, I know.

 

Maybe some time in the future, I now have the possibility for upgrades! My current 1200 block is quite limited.

This was at Buttonwillow over memorial day weekend. Guy was not pussyfooting around in it either. Temp plates and already covered in tire rubber goobers. Doing it right!

 

Now that's a proper owner for the car

I've thought about a different wheel, but there has always been something higher priority. Currently needs a bit of dent removal, then new tires & brake pads, then halo seat + cage + add lightness, then fenders + 295 or 315s + purple crack. The wagon wheel is ugly but it does steer the car, replacement will be something with a quick release.

 

Oh you going with a quick release. Makes sense, it's a race car anyway ?

 yeah, It spend years doing about 100-200 miles. I think over the last 9 months its put on almost 5 thousand, more than the previous 6 or 7 years combined.

 

There is another identical civic to mine a few blocks over that has seen better days and has been parked for years. I want to do a j type swap into  it but I don't have 10K to spend.

I think the wheels turned out real nice, I painted them. What do you think? It's my first car, I've had it for about two to three years now. Full audio system, with two 12inch subs. All I want now are fog lights and window tint. And she's getting new tires Thursday so that'll be fun. I got the wheels from a junkyard, that's why I painted them. Really good condition, except for the door :(, I'm about to hit 102k miles

Another built motor update:

 

IMG_1684.thumb.jpg.3545170c4964fc3d0b5829d802dd9502.jpg

 

Got my Boundary Stage 2 billet oil pump installed, rear main seal, modified MBSP (more on that), oil pickup tube and oil pan installed!

 

It took me more tries than I'd like to admit, simply due to dumb mistakes I made. Just goes to show you can't rush these things. First time around I noticed the oil pan baffle (MBSP) was not sitting flat on the main caps, didn't do anything about until I read up after the whole installation that because I am using ARP main studs the baffle interferes with the studs (since they protrude higher than the OE main bolts). So I took it apart, cleaned up the RTV and drilled/cut the MBSP to clear the main studs. Thought I was all good, bottom end is finished up! Then I woke up in a cold sweat in the middle of the night and remembered the OIL PICKUP TUBE sitting on the table. So then I had to take it all apart AGAIN and install that. Third time's a charm I suppose. But it's all good now, the bottom end is wrapped up, waiting on a few more parts before I install the cylinder head.

 

I ordered an ATI damper and new crank hardware (almost $600!) that should be here Monday, along with new head alignment pins I got from the local Mazda dealer. I am going to send the head to the machine shop (again) to have them install Volvo B18/B20 valve springs to better suit my forced induction application, also waiting on those in the mail. I would've had them install the springs when I got the head rebuilt but they were very hard to source. I have my Cometic head gasket and ARP head studs sitting on my desk right now so at this point I'm just waiting on parts as usual. Other than that just need to order the Gates water pump and the long block will be pretty much finished!

 

Still a lot of things to get of course, $800 clutch and flywheel, turbo manifold kit, EFR turbo, etc. I'm already almost $3,200 into the motor but still not even halfway of what the total cost for my 300-350whp build will be. Just the built transmission is almost $2,000 and the ECU alone is over $1,000. But I've been working and working for this so I'll eventually have it all ready to make some power, just have to be patient. :D
