Nice ASH.
Time for a new Dyno run, and to get some figures on.
Car build has been epic, lots of money thrown at this R! Every reason to be happy.

Tell me about it. LOL! But this time im serious. Time to start some other projects in life now. Just a few odds and ends and im satisfied! :D
Thanks a lot. :thumbup:
To be honest its really hard to say as i installed the FD2 oil pump, under-driven pulleys and cams all at the same time.
I did feel a huge difference after all that though. :weirdo:
It felt very congested and stiff, but after i did the exhaust was much better. From about 5k to 7k rpm you can really feel and hear it.

@OJ: Thanks dude.
Sadly not; between the lack of interest and incompetence of the panel beater and the unavailability of certain parts from Honda, the endless wait continues! Been just over a month now. :cry: :sad:

Hey Ash,
Glad you got the trim plate...finally!
The hold up was insane. Hope you didnt pa them full price as the steering wheel control cable is part of the trim plate package.
Cant wait to see the new pics and updates!

Bigger injectors...mmmm!
Sounding insane. Between you and Botha, going to be intersting with the N/A power
