  • New guy here. Some intercooler and piping work on my acura

    First i must say i have had no one to teach me how to weld. I simply bought a syncrowave 200 runner package and a bunch of scrap. Anyways here is my project i have been working on. Any feedback appreciated.

    Sorry to bump an old thread but,

    Any updates to this car?

    Interesting car, I have a similar one in outlaw form. Wish the pics still work of the weight bar. I like that idea!

    It is nice that you got it running and put at least another pass on it however...especially since you still need to dial it in.

    Yea i will be going to the track tomorrow night. So i should have some more updates

    heck might as well post up some fab pics i did tonight. The class minimum is 2500lbs. My car weighed in at 2535 so i decided to move some weight around. I took out the sunroof and cut up and old carbon fiber hood and made a carbon sunroof plug as well as took some misc stuff out of the rear of the car i/e old seatbelt brackets and what not. Took out around 50ish lbs.

    So then i built this weight bar up front that is made out of 2 1/4'' stainless tubing that i melted down lead and filled it with. Which ended up weighing around 70lbs but now its over/in front of the front tires so should help with traction.

    sorry guys its been soo long. Anyways the last time i posted i had bent valves. Well longs story short they got bent becuase of the machine shop screw up and to make a long story short my $2,000 head is now a paper weight.

    Anyways i picked up a stock head and tossed some standard size stainless nitride coated valves in it and tossed my valve springs and retainers in as well. and the car made 788whp on 40psi and E85 for the gas.

    Here is an in car video of a 10.43@146mph pass. This last weekend has really been the only weekend the car has been running good with no issues. I was being a pansy and not wanting to turn the boost up as i wanted to make sure the car was mechanically sound now. So this pass was at around 30psi

    No its good. The first thing i checked was the timing and it was dead on.

    oh well though new valves are on the way. I only had to order the two intake valves cause i had some spare exhaust ones, Headgasket and new copper o ring wire is on the way too. should be going again next week

    yea not really sure what bent the valves but 4 are bent. and yea i am going alittle higher than 9k haha. rev limiter is 10k.

    The machine shop thinks the valves might have gotten bent when the cams were installed. They think the rocker arms might have been slightly off when installing the cams.

    Yeah, I hear that. I too am a fan of double/triple checking stuff to make sure its correct.

    Valve to valve contact wouldnt be too fun...especially at what, 9k rpm?

    You should go to a rotary power plant, no valve issues! You could even run that same snail you have right now!

    OUCH! Sorry to hear about that man...never good to damage parts.

    You say you found a rocker nut backed off? Im not saying you didnt check/do it, but everything got locked off when you finished adjusting them right? Did you use any locktite?

    Anyway, hope it doesnt cost you too much, you still need to get used to the car!

    yea i also adjust the valves and then when i am done i go back through and double check all the nuts. i think it was just one of those freak things that will only happen once ya know.

    we still arent sure what cause the valves to bend. we think we might have figured out why but wont know for sure for awhile, basicaly the machine shop before forgot to put in two pins therefore only one cam was engaging to the bigger lobe. the other would do it everyonce in awhile and sometimes engage and disengage. we are thinking we might have had valve to valve contact.

    I donno the head is at the machine shop as of 8am yesterday. cant wait to get it back.

    bad news lol. bent some valves and not really sure why. head is at the machine shop. I think i have a hint as to why some got bent but not completely sure. I had a valve adjustment nut back out completley and it was probably bouncing around in the head for awhile and i am sure that has something to do with it. anyways head was dropped off to the machine shop yesterday at 8am. and i should hear back today how many valves i will need.

    That was a mjor selling point to me 10 years ago when i first became a haltech dealer, they were one of the only ones on the market that could fire wasted spark coil packs back then (there were others autronic, motec etc.. but they all had things that led me to haltech units)

    I must say even though hondata now has the new version, there's nothing like the capabilities that come with a full on stand alone and all it's inputs and outputs coupled with great data logging capabilities.
