@airickmatthews how is the car with all those mods? Does it feel way faster than stock?

Oh yeah. 100%. I just haven’t been able to get on it tho. As soon as I hit 7psi my clutch starts slipping big time. Can’t wait to feel its full potential after clutch and tune.
did install your own w1 or had a shop do it?

Did the w1 by myself. It’s really straight forward and not that difficult. 27won provides really good instructions. A shop quoted me $550 to install... F that. Lol.

Took me 6-7ish hours. Basically your just taking off the turbo inlet pipe, clamping down 2 coolant lines, and then removing. They provide you with a list of tools you will need, going to need a bunch of extensions to fit in some awfully tight areas. And make sure you go to Honda and pick up a gallon of their type 2 coolant. You will lose some, it’s inevitable.

will you need a lift or lifting the car on jack stands will do? what do you think of the 27won turbo, do you like it?

Jack stands work perfect. A lift would be overkill in my opinion. I love the turbo so far, just haven’t been able to go WOT yet. I did once and my clutch was slipping super hard around 7psi. Should be getting a new one in on Monday.

I went with SPEC stage 2+ with steel single mass flywheel.
I hear a lot of people are going with those. Flywheel is lighter and heard good reviews about it dropping the rpms really fast.
