After my shopping spree and looking at a few builds on some other forums, I got tired of a few things on my car...One of them being my "custom painted" Progress tie bar...


Resprayed it the factory Progress silver and ordered a new PROGRESS decal.


Also started to clean up the undercarriage

I had a friend come over to help adjust the valves because I have no idea how to... I took the valve cover off and was looking around inside the head for no real reason, Then I came across a very small spring.... Showed it to another friend and he then found a pin... Turns out that one of the springs and pins in the rocker arm assembly fell out during the reassembly of the head.... Long story short, The motor came back out. Timing cover, timing chain tensioner, timing chain, cam caps, and cams were removed.... Wanted to have the thing turning over on its own this weekend but I'm not sure what's going to happen.



Motor out, torn back down, reassembled one day.... motor put in and everything hooked up the next, then this....

Tonight, We found out that somehow I mixed up the TPS and MAP plugs when I accidently cut the wire a few months back and lenghtened the TPS wire instead of the MAP. This resulted in me plugging the MAP sensor into the TPS plug, and the TPS plug into the MAP. The choppy idle in the two previous videos is because the MAP sensor must have failed do to this mix up. I took the D17a2 MAP sensor and hooked it up and now it runs fine. I'll post pictures when I have time but for now here's a video.

Here's some videos of the exhaust before and after the muffler along with dyno videos.

I am, once I get out of college, K24a2 all the way. I love how clean you made everything, can't wait to see the finished product.
:tup: Thanks bro

Yeah, K24's are cheaper but I got mine for a steal (I think)....

The '03 engine harness and Kpro came out of a '05 RSX with a K24 swap lol...

I hadn't seen your thread before. Didn't realize you'd done all this work. Mad props! I'll be (hopefully) coming to Carlisle today or tomorrow to finish the tune if the clamp solves the leak issue. If you shoot me your number, I'll let you know.

I updated it but don't bump it to the top...Once the swap starts happening, It'll be bump'd. Thanks for the approval :dance:

PM coming your way

the work in your car looks so legit! im diggin it a lot!
Thanks bro! I want you car so bad lol I'm in love with it :hs:

Are type A ones close to the OEM's?
I believe it's the "OEM" look ones...Apparently they're hard to come by but Ebay carries them from time to time... I traded the AeroSkirts I had for them + $100 cash on my buddy's end

Damn sick build bro love it!!!nice shaved door handles too first time I see that on a em2
Thanks bro!

Personally...I dislike it ALOT.... Here, Everyone picks on me for it lmfao. If it were up to me, It wouldn't have been done. I've been looking for other doors in good shape to swap them out... It's a pain in the ass when it got driven in the winter...Every now and then, I can't get in the damn thing
