What question is that?

EDIT: I just looked up my vss cable since I've sold it on honda-tech, and matt, you can just slip the inside in from the tranny side.

Darnit, I deleted my post again!

Anyway, I have calibration issues.

Odometer: 51.6 MPG
MID: 45.3 MPG
Fill up but using almost assuredly correct MID distance: 50.3 MPG

The Odometer overregisters by 3% compared to the MID, but I'm guessing my fuel parameter is wrong (I don't honestly know the injector size for my injectors).

Either way, I'm happy with 50 MPG, I broke the barrier on my first try!

The goods from today:



The new plan:

Okay, so, this is still a mission to KDA, and it's only half done! So, I'll scavenge a valve from the clean head (which makes me feel terrible!) and throw it in the dirty head to replace the chipped one, then toss that 8 valver onto my engine and enjoy the 70hp of fury that it puts out.

This will solve two problems:

1. The engine has too many valves,
2. I'm using the IM off the 8 valve head right now, which has runners of about 1/2 the cross-sectional area of the head, which presents problems (sometimes the engine stumbles and hesistates and crap, I blame this since it never did it before).

I thought you said Dragonball Z sucked. Why do you have a magazine with Goku on it????

There better be a good explanation

Because I have every single shonen jump except for one I missed and the special introductory one in the beginning, which I guess I'll buy in the next day or so to keep the collection complete.

Anyway, the dragonballz manga is much better than the anime.

I know it is but they can't show some of that good stuff on american television.

About how long does it take you to swap a head?

I am thinking of going 8valve too, would i have to do any other mods for it to work?

I only watch the japanese versions of anime...anyway, the thing that sucks about it is that it's only 26 manga long but the show is 291 episodes, 26 manga should be like 100-120 episodes.

The head swap shouldn't take me too long. If you wanna do it you should convert to MPFI because your ecu will hate the fuel mixtures and the head will hate the crappy airflow.
