so just the wilwood up front I'm guessing... since you just did the rear rotors?
yeah its just the front kit. they make a big brake kit for the rear but i thought that was a bit overkil.
Calipers came in. I got the chance to weigh one of the new ones last night. Looks like there about 2.5-3lbs each. I will weigh the stock one when I get it off the car.
These found their way on the car over my extended weekend. Also replaced the rear wheel bearings since I wasn't happy with them.
Got and installed a set of Skunk2 Pro series plus front control arms since doing some at home measurement as best I could tell I was running over -3° all around. Made a cheap camber measuring tool using a scrap piece of wood and some screws and did a home alignment to get things back to a more reasonable range.
Currently sitting around -1.5° in the front and -2.0° in the rear. wanted to pull more camber out of the rear but I'm afraid if I do the back tires will rub since the fenders are not rolled.
Haven't had a chance to drive the car after install to see if it feels better since I don't want to drive all of my nice new parts through all the melting snow and heaps of salt.
Finally got around to replacing my bent power steering pump pulley and replacing the belt. It was some random belt we found off a Mitsubishi eclipse that we had laying around that just happened to fit.
Now I'm trying to figure out why the car looses battery charge over the course of 2 weeks. Struggling to figure out if its a voltage draw even when the car is off, which would be odd since I didn't have the issue before and I haven't changed anything electrical recently, or if the failing alternator caused the battery to go bad as well. Current battery is 3 years old.
Unfortunately I don't think the car will be ready for the first autocross of the season next month. I don't have anywhere near enough money saved to get the car tuned and I don't know enough about Hondata or engine tuning to take a preliminary crack at it myself.
Check the interior lights for current draw. Had a friend recently with an older accord that was eating batteries. Turned out be a short in one of the visor mirror lights that didn't work anymore.
Kickass progress though man!
Only interior light is the dome light, which doesn't work anymore unless you physically turn the switch on. I'll still hit it with the multimeter though.
Turns out battery was just junk. Replaced with an optima yellow top. Car is pretty much just waiting to be tuned at this point.
Some new parts got installed over the weekend. ASR subframe brace and 24mm bar.
Old stock 14mm integra bar for comparison.
wow its been a minute since i posted an update in here.
Spent some time and revised my intake design to get the air filter out of the engine bay. Waiting on word back from a tuning shop but it looks like professional tuning is finally in this things future.
Also installed some aftermarket goodies to keep me planted when i do finally get this thing to an autocross.
I'm pm'n u question. Forgot u had a thread. Lol.
Waiting on the tuning shop to finish up with some last minute issues we ran into, then I should have some numbers and maybe a graph.
Good to see an old civi on the dyno.
results? nope... now? nope... check back in a minute... oh man come on! Where's it at!!!
