  1. What am I looking at here?

    (shrug) Looks good to me. If it ever goes south... having the insurance cover it as damage due to road debris rather than paying out-of-pocket would probably be cheaper. Those finned parts are there for heat dissipation from my understanding. I once had to sand a few down to split a 4160E...
  2. What does your tuned 2.0 beat?

    I'll have to get the old lady to line up against Si on of these days. I bet they're (sadly) pretty even. My Odyssey is a little down on power with port injection and has the 6 speed instead of the 10... so it'd be a tad slower. When I've followed her home on a few occasions and her taking off...
  3. Jacksonville, FL

    Old history. I remember being on the crews mess on my first boat when the captain called us all in. He talked about how he’d put a guy on restriction the last few weeks we were in port when a guy went on a high speed run heading diwn on that big bridge that I’m pretty sure is the one about 1/2...
  4. So.... 11th gen civic

    I'd of bought a 8th gen over my 9th gen Si... had they not held their value so well that I felt like getting a '15 for around 22k OTD was better than buying a '09 or '10 for around $15k. Even the earliest 8th gens were about $10k with high miles and shot paint. At least I got one of the late 9th...
  5. What does your tuned 2.0 beat?

    The current K20C2 has almost the exact same specs as a 7th gen Sis K20A3. Power... torque... it’s powerband.... redline. They bumped up its compression to make it a little more efficient, but if you compare their specs... they’re very... very close. I’m not sure that it’s variant of VTEC is the...
  6. Whats your tuning laptop?

    I’m using one now along side my HP laptop that’s the guts of a Omen gaming version in a pavilion case. Kids are using it to do their schools-cancelled school work. I have another Asus and a Samsung stuck away somewhere (people are always giving me their old broke stuff) but I think neither work...
  7. Whats your tuning laptop?

    HP made a laptop that, I think was called a ‘stream’. Soldered CPU. Garbage... tiny eMMC hard drive that’s also soldiered to the board. Internal battery. Thing is... they’re a couple years old now and came with Windows 10. I think their either cost $200 or $250 but they’re pretty worthless since...
  8. 10th Gen Civic 1/4 Mile Times

    Yeah. All that map switching stuff... plugging in vs not... is what I asked that my TSP Stage 1 just have the 24.5# map be in map 1 position that starts by default. I don't want to fumble through maps to get the hot map selected. If I don't want 24.5#... I'll not push down on the gas pedal quite...
  9. Rodent Wire Damage

    I fooled around earlier today and I was able to find a wiring harness kit that is every since wiring harness in the engine bay for a few hundred dollars. I wasn't able to find the individual one... and there's not a lot of pulled parts on ebay because it's still a relatively new car that's...
  10. Rodent Wire Damage

    Kinda late but... we’re just talking about the wiring harness going to the ignition coils? I’d have to look it up but I’d assume this entire harness would cost 10s of dollars to replace. The harness should just sit in that little plastic shell that can be unsnapped to release it with 4 plug ends...
  11. MAPerformance Stage 1 vs TSP stage 1

    I have heard the quicker spool characteristics are retained more with MAP as TSP seems a smidge more linear than what the basemaps were capable of. I only have TSP so I can’t speak to it directly. There are old threads with one or two guys that have a comparison as I recall months back. You can...
  12. 27Won Front Mount Intercooler Review with Datalogs

    Really an outstanding and informative review. Very well done.
  13. COVID-19 Tracking

    Wonder if they make you go to the back with the finance guy for an hour to sweat you out and he tries to add-on wet-ones for a nominal fee?
  14. COVID-19 Tracking

    Based on projections, we’ll have lowered our domestic death rate from over 2 million to a couple hundred thousand or less. This will be at the cost of trillions of dollars of course. Worth it? History can be the judge. If this ends up costing 10 trillion dollars worth of lost GDP, change in...
  15. 27WON - Testing the OE Turbo Inlet Pipe

    Post 85 for the link.
  16. COVID-19 Tracking

    Well... looking at the numbers... we typically have 7500 death/day in the US. Looks like we're around 700 deaths from COVID-19 for the day... so we're on your way to having raised our national death rate by about 10%... if you assume that the people dying from COVID-19 weren't planning on dying...
  17. 27WON - Testing the OE Turbo Inlet Pipe

    At least it makes swaps easy... Saw your raffle. Very good of y'all. Throwing a tenner in for TIP #1.
  18. Warranty Voided from "Over Rev"

    I’ve seen cars not able to start and run from bent valves. Others can... but run badly. The valves seating act to cool the valves themselves... so a valve not seating doesn’t allow its heat to get transferred into the heat. The valves would get burnt up (though they’re already bent) and then...
  19. 27WON - Testing the OE Turbo Inlet Pipe

    ...so it’s been 2 days. Just sayin’.
  20. Warranty Voided from "Over Rev"

    Yes. Start with arbitration. It costs nothing and can come before hiring an attorney to file a civil case against Honda.
