Sweet, I love the sound! Ever think about taking it to Honda Day? How long did it take you to rebuild?

The first time I built it, a place in Jacksonville FL called Stage 6 built it. They are pretty well known & that took a year. That was motor, tranny, turbo, brakes, suspension, exhaust ... I mean a full build like, the shell was original but EVERYTHING down to rubber & steering wheel was changed. With the 4G I paid for the car, that was about 29G... whew, if I could go back in time, lol. I blew that motor after about a year or so. It was being rebuilt for about 8 months by a local gy who goes by VSPEC. He specializes in B series Honda motors & has a 9 second hatch, himself. My old setup was at 535hp on race fuel before & I spun a bearing & had a piston rubbing the cylinder wall. I'd also beat the head pretty hard & the retainer clips were done. So, this was a full rebuild from the crank, rods, pistons & went vtec, while we were at it. I was trying to get it to Import Faceoff but when the day came it was 16 degrees... in FL?! We're not used to that. So, I didn't go. I think the high that day was mid 20s. This car should run low 10s all day. I need to get it back to the track.
