I've never had a build thread (Update Apr 26th)
« on: May 04, 2009, 08:33:12 PM »

After years of whoring here, I finally have something worthwhile coming together.  Previous two "builds" never were finished due to financial hard times, but times are better (for now).

The only picture I have:


The block is currently at R&R Speed Shop here in Huntsville, AL.  I'm not sure on their experience with Hondas, since walking into their shop I only saw V6s and mostly V8s laying around, but they seem like a good, down-to-earth group of country boys that will get it done right.

Parts list:
B18B block
B16A head
GSR crank
GSR Wiseco pistons
GSR TT rods
Thick Cometic headgasket (should drop compression to around 9.2:1)
ARP head studs
Blox intake manifold
Wide, unknown-brand throttle body
B16A hydro transmission
OBD0-OBD1 conversion harness
Chipped P28
VTAK water/oil pumps, dizzy
GSR cams
CRX SiR shift linkage
Competition Clutch 6-puck sprung stage 4
B16 exhaust manifold
2.5" crush-bent exhaust and cheap muffer

Shit I still need to buy:
Ferrea valves
Supertech springs/retainers
Hydro conversion
Boost stuff

Things that I have and probably will never get off my ass to install:
JK Motorsports traction bar
Relocate Odyssey battery
ITR front/RSX rear calipers

Should be updating with swap in 2-4 weeks.

Boost will be ready before the stealth shuttle

Aiming for 400-500whp of insanity.

No, will be upgraded.

Just what's on it now.  I expect NA for 4.3 years.

Kickass update on my ultimate build.

Called the shop, since it's been 3 weeks, and they said it would take 2-3 weeks.

Me: Just checking if it's done
Them: Well, we have it cleaned and the flywheel resurfaced.  We've been behind because one of the guys' dad died and he hasn't been here.

Guess I'll go ahead and buy more shit I don't need.

In that case, I'd suggest you just run an OEM mls hg for now. You'll have a little more power for the time being, and possibly better gas milage too. That would end up paying for the HG after 4.3 years...

That was just my way of saying I don't have any "deadlines" to get the boost done.  Engine is in somewhat of a rush since mine makes the Valdez look good with all the oil it burns.

Too lazy to swap the headgasket later.  I don't see boost taking more than a year, I already have the thick headgasket (so buying another OEM one wouldn't save money), and even if I lose 10-20 horsepower due to the compression drop, it'll still be about 2x as powerful as the worn out whore that's in it now.

You still don't have a buid thread :P

Waiting on the motherfucking shop (need the hotrex smiley)

What mounts you running?

I dunno, was told they were innovative but they don't look like them.  No fucking clue.

My innovative mounts had the name cut into the mounts.

Hurry up and get this done. I'm tired of riding slow and I don't see my fail boat self being boosted anytime soon.

I'm tired of refilling the oil weekly and leaving a cloud of smoke in my wake...

A fine, possibly underaged female complimented the CRX yesterday.  I left her in a cloud of burnt oil chyeeeaaah

the mean streets of gadsden, when im not working in some fuckhole of a place like kentucky.

so it took those guys 2 weeks to hone a block? for future reference, there is a great machine shop in albertville/boaz called Abby's machine shop. they've done most of my machine work, and alot of close friends very quick cars machine work.

thats a clean rex too, i like

Yeah, 5 weeks they've disassembled the block (just needed crank removed, pulley bolt was a bitch when the block isn't attached to anything), surfaced the flywheel, cleaned the block, and bored the cylinders.  Supposedly, by mid next week they'll have the head disassembled (just valves/springs), cleaned, and verify mating surface is smooth...and block they'll have honed, assembled (pistons, crank, rods, etc), decked, and balanced.  I don't see it happening.  They're a good shop that has been around forever, I just think they give lower priority to people they'll make less money from.

Thanks, the pics don't quite capture the rusty window trim, dried/shrunk seals, etc.

Shop finally called and said the block is finished...and told me it would cost $890 :?:

Sounded a bit crazy to me since the original estimate was $350 for the block work and $140 for the head, but I'll check the itemized ticket and see what the hell supposedly cost so much before I pay.

Glad it's finally done, though.

dude i gotta tell ya, there's alssloads of



in both gadsden & huntsville.


just tell two people you're going to go wakeboarding on the coosa or swimming and youll have a set clamoring to go. find a friend with a boat and make the most of the rest of the summer








or start telling enough girls youve got extra room at the beach. that's a classic (the key is doing it on a month's notice no more no less)





gadsden is looooooaded

Yes, assloads here.

As long as you stay away from the shitty parts of Huntsville (north, downtown), you can walk anywhere and be aroused.

Thanks for improving this thread with pics of southern belles.

anytime, since we got the tower on the boat and its the loudest thing on the river now all the ssy like riding in it. if noone feels like going out we can normally get atleast *something* descent to look at on a lunch break. just meet them at the downtown docks.

tower has 4x KS650's & 2x 6.5" CompVR subs. another pair of KS650's inside the boat.

playing nig-nog stuff that has sirens, whistels, etc you can hear it more than a mile away on the water. anything else if you know the song you can sing along at 3/4 mile (behind the boat, about 1/4 mile infront of it)
