    Engine Building
    I have a p28 ecu,d15b7 block with a y8 head, y8 cams, y8 cam gear, and z6 timing belt. I am a little confused with what I’m supposed to do with the cam gear timing.

    I have a turbo honda that I am currently working on, D16Z6. I recently put a 255 fuel pump. Loaded hondata with a basemap. The car was running well for a couple min, then I began revving it to see it was making any boost. Then it started exploding, no boost though. After a few revs, the car...

  4. Ignition Dwell (Neptune RTP)

    Engine Building
    Hoping someone could share some insight on how to alter this region productively when using Neptune RTP. The Help file is severely lacking in my opinion, and raises many questions, including the attitude of the author. Anyway.. I've attached a JPG with the window in question. "Ignition...
  5. Engine Timing: How Close is too Far?

    Engine Management
    So I replaced the crank seal on my d16a6 and put a new timing cover on after replacing the timing belt and lining up the timing marks as best I could see. Now, the lower timing cover has a sort of timing "aimer" (one long plastic triangle that you line up between two smaller plastic triangles)...
