Ordered ARP main studs and a clutch/flywheel set for the B16.

The more expensive valvetrain and trans components will have to wait until next year :( oh wait, thats in a couple weeks! Sweet! Lol

Will be updating the Aero thread some more over the next couple weeks, I plan on swapping the bottom end and trans out of grey car and into Aero. Aero's head will need some rework to accept the M11 head studs and rechecked for flatness, but other than that, it should be a relatively straightforward swap.

Aero's turbo setup will stay put, I'm addicted to that 5psi at 1500rpm lmao

You know how web cookies are used to power floating ads in other websites that try and show you "relevant content" centric to someones ad campaign?

Fuck, if eBay didn't hit the nail on the head of what I want this year for the holidays:

A Samsung tablet based ELD system posing on a Mack Anthem dashboard, a really dirty shitty 4 cylinder engine that is getting jump started for some reason, a deployed Toyota Highlander airbag, and maybe bench seats for an old Citroen 2CV? Fuzzy on that last one lol. These are guesses btw, I refuse to click on it haha:

So I lucked out and snagged this from someone in Canada for $100 bucks, already had adjustable gear cutouts and was in damn good condition:

Automotive lighting Rectangle Red Font Audio equipment


Hood Wood Rectangle Flooring Font


Land vehicle Shoe Hood Motor vehicle Luggage and bags



I realized the knock off Mugen VC I have won't work for the COP mounting plates designed for B series valve covers! The valley is too narrow and oddly shaped on the Mugen compared to the OE:

Guitar accessory Bicycle part String instrument accessory Red Font




Also, the OEM Type R covers are just quintessential icing on B series cakes,
Hair Face Forehead Nose Head




Also picked up some LMAs for B series. Honda apparently at some point realized the err of their ways, and redesigned the notoriously sticky lifter style body LMAs for the B series to take after the aftermarket full body spring designs from the likes of Supertech, Skunk2, BLOX, etc. Grabbed a set of 8:

Font Material property Coil spring Gas Coil


Rectangle Font Metal Carmine Brand



The header and clutch/flywheel kit will also be here probably tomorrow. Settled on this long sweeping 4-1 header from 1320 performance, its called the Randy Monroe V3 (pure porn name lol):

Bicycle part Nickel Auto part Metal Composite material


I'll chop off the flange and weld a V-Band to it so that it hooks directly to the grey car's current exhaust.

Also got the head studs from InlinePro, and main studs from ARP:

Sleeve Material property Gas Font Electric blue


Cosmetics Font Material property Packing materials Gas

I like the header......megaphone? Either way the Randy Monroe V3 looks legit.

Glad to see parts coming in

This one didnt have a megaphone, but that doesnt mean one cant get added :)

We'll have to play with this, it would be cool to have a megaphone on v-bands with interchangable sections of short and long pipes to get positioning off the header in the right spot!

Now you're talking! Put that crap on the dyno, change out pipes, and see which makes more power and where............:) :) :)

I'll say again, 6 position rotary switch for your demon, you could tune for different cam advances and retards with different length pipes to dial in for specific tracks 😍

Aiming for a full season this coming year?
I'm gonna try for most! The 2022 schedule for my region is as follows:

March 18-20 VIR Full Course
April 15-16 (Fri/Sat) Summit Point Raceway
May 13-15 HyperFest VIR Full Course
June 25-26 Summit Point Raceway
July 22-24 Pitt Race Crossover w/ Great Lakes Region
August 19-21 VIR Full Course
October 21-23 VIR Full Course OktoberFAST
November 12-13 Summit Point Raceway (HPDE/TT only)



I'm probably not going to make March Madness 18-20th, but it would be cool to run Summit Point in April to get the new engine/trans dialed in!

If I don't make Summit Point April 15-16, then I absolutely will by May for Hyperfest again!

Following Hyperfest, I'm definitely going to Summit Point in June.

Probably not going to Pitt Race (Pittsburgh), that's a bit of a drive. I'm limited to what I feel comfortable with in terms of a tow rig, and I don't really have one. I have to piece things together, usually last minute lol.

If there is a will there is a way.. :)

Going to order one of these as well. Will contact them to see how to go about ordering one:

I could I have forgotten about the old Ishihara-Johnson crank scraper!! I had one of those on my high compression 9k rpm D16a6. Forgot all about it until you put that link there. They work! Might have to clearance it just a tad, but they work. These little things are what makes all the difference!

Departure from the B series for a bit. Finally got a chance to look into and test the grey car's cylinder head for any issues.

Gas Bottle Machine Auto part Engineering


Gas Machine Auto part Metal Engineering


Thought I hit the nail on the head out the gate! Before valves removed, when pouring liquid into #4 exhaust runner, liquid pissed out the intake side! False alarm lol, was the preformed EGR passage.

Other than that initial surprise, I found nothing immediate, but still need to test spring and valve stem heights.

Cleaned and dried combustion chamber faces. Used a mix of gasoline and 2 stroke oil, works just as good as ATF/gas for soaking into crevices. With fluid sitting in the head ports for 10 minutes a side, nothing appeared. No seats were leaking.

Springs all required about the same amount of tension to compress with the spring compressor, so I don't suspect I'll find anything wrong with them. No obvious cracks, none were broken. Keepers and retainers were in good shape. Valve stems looked alright, no scoring, so it wasnt binding in the guides.

There is however, a significant amount of this sticky buildup in all the runners. Either every one of my valve seals are seriously bad (they dont feel bad) or the E85 is causing some kind of buildup. Will have to dive in some more to make sure my fuel system is healthy. Will also probably send the injectors back to FIC to be cleaned and flow tested.

So I'm not 100% on this, but I "may" have found something, although i have a hard time believing this would cause the serious backfiring. The intake manifold gasket portion that separates #4 intake runner from the EGR port looked like it had a small "trace" where gas exchange could have been occurring between runner #4 and the EGR port. The gasket was still in tact, not broken or deformed or anything, so if there was leakage, it would be miniscule and should not have been able to cause the amount of backfires or popping I was hearing. I suppose its "possible", but still sticking with highly unlikely based on what the surfaces and gasket looked like.

Will inspect the block more closely, to look for any hairline cracks between cylinders. Will also more closely check the HG for any leakage between layers.

I'm sorta/kinda at a loss with this symptom. I'm also holding off any plans for swapping the bottom end into Aero before i feel confident the block isn't damaged or anything. Will go ahead and swap the trans though :)

The saga continues!

Oh another fun tidbit, I started going through B series parts to clean things, and realized I'm missing 3 rocker arms and 2 VTEC locking pins......

These items did get scattered when we moved last year, so I'm assuming they got lost then. No idea where they went.

Ordered two used sets off eBay that were in great shape. Gotta love eBay for the most random shit that people are selling, its like Craigslist+, not only can you find almost any old random thing that nobody should randomly be selling, but you do, and can pay for it and get it shipped to you! Lol.

No sketchy meetups from the classifieds haha
