stage 2 xact disc n pressure plate with the 13lb xact billet chromoly flywheel. I don't think i'll ever buy another aluminum flywheel, I shoulda listened to my cousin from the start when he said they're junk.

Ive been saying it since day one. Those aluminum flywheels are shit. Chrome moly ACT flywheel is light enough and durable. It can also be resurfaced.

When you do install it do break it in easy. GL

well now i have almost every bolt on you can get. All i need are the pulleys i think, and ignition. But Honda's stock ignition has worked up to 500 hp i've seen so i'm in no rush to get that.

After my exhaust literally fell into pieces, i had to finish up my exhaust project. Kteller Tri-Y race header, Vibrant race cat and resonator, Apexi ws2 muffler. 2.5in to the resonator, 3in from the resonator to the muffler. (Shoutout to Excelerate for the Vibrant products, great deal!)

This is what was left of my resonator. It was just sliding around back n forth.


My exhaust broke at the 2nd bend right where it flanges to the muffler. Held it up with heatwrap and wire till i could get it to the shop


ahhhh Apexi! I love the way this thing sounds.


Underbody fitment of the piping. Pretty tight up to the body and oil pan.




After a weekend of breaking in the header


H23a Bay shot. Valvecover and other items getting repainted soon.



She still needs a lot of work. I'm never done with this thing. Just sent away to my cousin's shop for some more goodies, and doing more maintenance and painting soon

man you're so right about the power, now that i have the exhaust to compliment the intake manifold and throttle body, its amazing. you can actually feel the car surge forward harder when vtec hits at 4900 all the way to 8k, its freakin awesome. I should get some vids up.

Thanks guys! glad you like

210 at the crank, on a brand new motor. You gotta factor in wear (my motor has a good 50k on it now, i drive alot) and drivetrain loss which is about 20% or so.

It ended up doing better than i had hoped, i just wish my damn camera didn't die while i was running the car on the dyno.

Shaun: Ummm no need to race a boosted car when i'm N/A haha. i'll come chill in jersey soon though.

Arber: He meant the exhaust he sold me. I bought my ws2 from him.

I never got to tune the car, just did a couple runs to see where i'm currently at. The car made 189, then 192, then 196. The 1 thing i was allowed to do was change my vtec settings with my vafc, so i turned it down each run and it ended up making more power. So the current #'s are 196hp and 160tq till i get tuned.

lol so would telling you its on just bolt-ons with a stock block and head be considered attempted murder? lol

intake, throttle body, IM, race header n 2.5in exhaust with cat and resonator still in tact. Also vafc, clutch and flywheel. I have a fuel rail and FPR and cam gears, but at this point they're cosmetic and haven't been used to change any of the stock parameters.
