2 years of research(thanks to this site) I have started. Please chim in if anyone sees something I have done wrong. New at this and its my first time boosting any car.

Poor here so piggy back will have to do till I can afford a stand alone.

pnp= no hardwiring for me!:cool:

haleman pro boost controller

greddy catch can

got the head off 2.8 mm HG

timing belt tens. You need a bench vise or press to put this back in.

don't take out the bucket shims or you'll be sorry. They have to remain in place.

ARP headstuds. Torqued to 75 ftlbs


Parts everywhere.LOL

Fuel rail tapped

680cc presions. low imp. I messed up and forgot I need high imp. So I got a resistor box from a V6 accord.
headstuds going down

cam bolts down at 15ftlbs

timing belt going in. This is a small challenge. Be patient.

front of motor together work on the intake side

duh....

injectors are in

injectors are hooked up. Sodered(spelling) together.

intake is on, but some of the bolts are pain to get to due to having large hands

FPR and return line


The ride

Mag. drain plug (adds 1500 hp) LOL


Oil pan dropped getting ready to drill and tap a 3/8 18 NPT fitting for the return oil line.
Thats it for now....stay tuned for more coming.

Heat wraped the DP due to it being so close to things that could catch fire.

I forgot to take pics of installing the fuel pump, but there is a 255 walbro in there.

I traded my 8x24x3 greddy, for my current one. I wanted the big one, the other guy needed the small one for his prelude. Its a XS power cheapie. Intercooler is a intercooler to me, they all do the same thing.

Got to start somewhere man. I read on this car for 2 years before even touching it. I got a book of notes to refresh my mind. This site has pretty much told me everything I needed to know!

Yes, This site is a gold mine...

Do you think we would all have "the balls" to tear our cars apart without the help of the folks on this site?

Not a chance!!

I have learned such a wealth of knowledge from these forums you just wouldn't wanna try & put a price tag on!!

Thanks to all that contribute and especially those who know what the F**** they are talking about!

Nice work so far!

I take it you have single feed and a return on the fuel?

didn't see you tap both sides(for feed) and only the center for return. Unless I'm mistake. :confused:

To answer one question, I'm from Missouri.
#2 I tapped the front of the fuel rail and that line goes to the FRP, then from that it goes to #3 ventical on the fuel pump. Right? In the back of the fuel rail is the factory feed line.
