there's probably 11-13 k-equipped cars in the scrap right now here but they all have a big X on the windshield indicating the engine is fucked some how...

Yeah, who knows what’s wrong with junkyard motors. This yard does have a 30 day return policy though, and realistically I could bring in a battery and compression tester and find out before I pulled/paid.

Here’s what I picked today. Some blanks to replace the two I bought that were the wrong color. I also found a sail panel to replace my cracked piece, and a knee bolster cover to replace the one on my car that had a few holes drilled in it. Also found the firewall harnesses I needed. I already spliced them together, so now my tuck is essentially plug and play. I also grabbed a spare IAT sensor and a dash vent for my RDX.

https://flic.kr/p/2jczDia Swapped out the blanks for the right color

https://flic.kr/p/2jczDi5 Got the passenger bag back out and the tray back in. You can also see my DIY harness down on the floor. It reaches and it’s plugged in. Still haven’t cranked the engine to make sure it works

https://flic.kr/p/2jcCn5W Cold air intake is back in. Will test fit the bumper as soon as I can. Tested my headlight tuck harness and everything works. I did not test the rad fan yet but will when I fire her up this weekend

https://flic.kr/p/2jdLWwE Polishing up the headlights, for the third time. The one on the right is done, the one on the left is not. Both are hazy inside, so not much else I can do short of cracking them open again. Will probably just buy a clean EDM pair and be done with it.

Went to start the car tonight and nada. Well, shit...will be troubleshooting this weekend.
New clutch slave cylinder should be here next week. And word on the street is the MVA is open by appointment only so I’m going to call tomorrow and get the next available Saturday slot. Wish me luck

Okay, she starts now. Really helps if you install the trans ground! Still waiting on parts. Still haven’t made an appointment to get title/tags. Right now I’m just doing little odds and ends until I get my RTA bushings. I moved my O2 sensor from runner 4 to the bung before the collector and it hits the CV boot hard. Logical options are get a new header, have a new bung welded on the header, get a test pipe, or put the sensor back on the runner and use an O2 extension harness. Anybody out there got a used 4-1 you’d like to sell me?
P28 is back in the car and I’m running the Hondata D16Z6 map. Need to hook up the laptop and set base timing. But first I need to buy a timing light.

Blox test pipe ordered today.

I’m starting to inventory my Z6 parts to figure out what I need to buy to get that assembled and swapped in. I have a complete long block, FJ rods, Vitara 75.5 slugs, and a Cometic head gasket. I’m looking to add an ATI Super Damper and I still need bearings/thrust washers and the machine work. And I’d love a Canton oil pan.
