    Congrats on the new baby!

    Comment


      Thanks, Colin! Busy busy!
      I received my transmission with the Quaife I used before installed. Switched over to LS gearing. (I have GSR/B16 Cable tranny minus a diff for sale locally if anyone is interested with Carbon Synchros)
      Installed the Tranny last night. Stripped a ball joint while the guys were pushing the car into the garage to work on it. Guess I'll be doing a balljoint or two now...
      No pics, it's a transmission.

        I'll be interested to see how you like the LS gearing. I LOVED the GS-R gears whenI was running a b18a but I can definitely see how it may be too short for a lot of situations.

          There's another reason for the LS gearing.
          The GS-R gears were something else with the B20. For zipping around on the streets it would be a ton of fun. I'm keeping the transmission but will be rebuilding it.
          Side note: July 3 was spent putting in 2 new wheel bearings (turns out mine were shot too), 2 new lower ball joints, and a new tie rod end. Managed to put the axles back in and take it for a spin. The car is much different from the LS gearing but that was expected! I'll have some fun news soon!

            For those not up on instagram, I've got some updates. I installed the LS transmission which is supposed to be a fresh rebuild from out west. The service with Synchrotech was really good, but they wouldn't accept a coupon that I found on HT even though it was still accepted on their website. Either way, it's a smooth shifting transmission and I'm happy with it.
            The car has been turbocharged. I know the b20 isn't ideal for boost, but the turbo kit will probably stick around longer than the motor.
            Garrett GT30R ball bearing turbo with coolant and oil feeds, oil drain into Moroso pan.
            Tial blow off
            Tial wastegate, to atmosphere
            ebay intercooler and piping was welded to fit well.
            Exhaust dumped right at the firewall (pretty loud)
            Hondata S300 w/ Boost By Gear, I think it's basically spring pressure in first (3-4#), peaking in third and fourth to 11#, and then reduced back in 5.

            The car made a modest ~240hp and 200ft. The tuner, st00pidfast, knew that this was a track car and wanted to ensure that it'd take a lickin.

                ASR Hollow Swaybar installed. I purchased this at the beginning of the year when ebay was doing a 20% off coupon, pre-boost-plans. Figured I'd install it while I'm waiting on the "Car Fund" to be replenished...

                  I've always been intrigued by those bars. I just recently installed an Eibach ITR bar + ASR brace on mine. Only one autoX so far with that setup but so far I think it's a little more aggressive than my old Progress bar.

                  Is that 2nd pic with the suspension at full droop? Have you looked to see what the endlink angles are like when the suspension is loaded and/or compressed? I don't have the experience to back it up but that angle just looks odd to me.

                  Comment


                    I wrote a long ass response and the forums cut off my response using the mobile. Anyways, yes. It looks weird to me too. That pic is with the wheels off the ground on the lift. I think I may have swapped the arms on the bar. Right now, they bow out. Could bow in and hopefully straighten out the end links. Will give that a go.
                    Obviously, exhaust becomes tricky with this setup.

                            Pretty sure I've had a pin hole on the ebay radiator since one of my off's back whenever I used to track this thing... Tried putting a second fan on as a pusher on the driver side, but the leak showed up. Bought another ebay radiator because the options aren't really good for our cars. I'll be using one of the shrouds this time around. Need to bleed brakes, maybe change gear oil if I have time.
                            Signed up for a track day in January, so the heat is on to get this baby done.
                            Also did this. It's just a prototype, will likely end up being 3D printed and more robust.

                              Nice, what digital gauge is that? Or is it part of an engine management system?

                                It's an app called TuneLogs. Very intuitive! This is connected via bluetooth to the S300. You can drag and drop all the stuff around, show what's important to you. Have multiple dashboards. So I might want one for the streets, and another for the track that's just a huge friggin tach and maybe some other gauges smaller that I can look at occasionally, There's a little bit of lag, but it's not earth shattering.

                                    Went out to my first track day since Turbo. It was a cheap one, $100 for the day. I only meant it to be a shakedown, but man is this thing a hoot! The issues I found were the ARP stainless nuts (or some titanium ones, so I was told) 4 of the 9 came off the exhaust manifold. And the tube to the wastegate came loose. I found some spare nuts and bolted those down then drove it home after 2 sessions. There are 2 nuts that I have no idea how they got on, being 12pt and the stud is directly against, or damn close to, something else. I'll be sacrificing a 10mm wrench with the 12 pt on the end to hope I can get at these things. To hopefully solve the problem, I'm going to put some of these stage 8 bolts on. You basically bend that triangle around the manifold or against a tube. That's what the folks at inline recommended, so worth a shot. Grabbed some copper nuts just in case as well.

                                    The entire ride there the car stayed in the 165 range temp wise. It was a cool day. In the second session the car got up to 180 ish, but that's that. Being that this is Texas and the car will be driven in the summer, will probably start with a better fan than the ebay man. It has an ebay radiator, turbo is water cooled, mishimoto themostat and mishimoto matching fan switch. In case it hasn't been said before, do not do those two mods separately. You'll over work the fan or not cool the coolant enough before the thermostat is wide open.

                                    We also noticed while doing the alignment that the passenger axle was dorked up. Self inflected wound from a friend 'pulling' the axle out of the tranny there. $40 part, in stock at Autozone. Lifetime warranty. Gotta love mid-nineties hondas. The alignment I used this time was 3.1* camber in the front and 2.7/2.1 in the rear. (Not sure why off, but will be looking for a kit soon) Ran a little bit of toe in by recommendation of the alignment specialist. He said it would help with the torque steer. I think I may zero that or go a little out, but it did help alot with torque steer. The rear swaybar (ASR hollow kit) is fantastic. The car feels very hooked up. Can't wait until the next one!

                                    And some more information: That tablet was great. I'd probably need to adjust it so it's more visible, but it works really good! Previously I didn't have a speedometer, but now I do and it's just as accurate as my phone's GPS. Hoping to get a better mount designed and then see about making more.

                                      I guess I never posted my dyno either. It's not much, but for a B20, here's hoping it's pretty reliable.

                                        Looks like a TON of power to me! I'm used to a 200hp B18c.

                                          Figured I'd share a few other things. Recently painted the car, poorly. Also have cut the hood and added vents. The tablet, we've designed a 3D printed mount. It hold well. May send the design to have it made in aluminum at some point. I'll be making side windows out of lexan soon, and possibly the rear hatch if I can't find a FAL one, since they don't seem to make one anymore. I'll do a write up during the process.

                                            I don't know if they still do but there was a place called like Y&S Lexan that had rear Lexan for the Integra. But I think they were only in Facebook. Might be worth a shot if you can't find the FAL piece.

                                            Also what color is that?

                                                I mean I think it looks pretty good in pictures haha, I want to paint my car similar to that color that's why I asked. Not anything to fancy but at least get the car not multiple colors.

                                                Did you notice a decent improvement in cooling with venting the hood?

                                                  I haven't tested it yet to be honest. At speed the car was fine; however, at a standstill in ~90 degree weather, it would begin warming up. I had a terrible fan in the car and have since switched to a large more robust fan. I've also switched out the traction bar which frees up a lot of space, but as we know heat rises so I don't know whether that will contribute or not.

                                                  As far as the color goes, yeah I still treated it as an amateur paintjob with a spray gun & compressor. Threw a bit of hardener into the paint as well. It's just ok, and could have been much better. I don't think I thinned enough, so now I'm really regretting the hardener as I wetsand my way through it. Car is not a show car, but like you said, all one color.

                                                  I heard back from Y&S actually, waiting on quotes for the rear window; i'll likely go ahead and do the side windows myself as I have a special design in mind. Thank you very much for the information!
