    The pressure plate was still in one piece but severely grooved

    You were talking about testing at the track right?


    Man that sway bar looks rediculous. I was just posting in Al's thread about sway bars and that thing looks like a calculation nightmare.

    If you want it buddy...you can have it haha....

    I am sure with your nutty ways you can make something out of it hahaha....

    Last weekend, worked on another Honda Fit.

    This one is a 2007 Sport model and the owner wanted the whole Weapon R power package from the company installed.

    We installed the revised version of their intake manifold. The onwer had the previous version that was throwing an EGR code cel.

    We also installed their 1 piece cat delete race header with flex pipe.

    Finally we tried to install their short ram intake but they sent us the wrong fittings so no combination worked properly. We are having a new version shipped out.












    the last 2 show both fittings used on one end so no other piece was available to holf the intakr to the throttle body.

    Forgot to take a pic of what the intake looks on the car but it's similar to this

    Overall great looking products, most of the bugs are worked out but they still need to work on that a bit.

    Cheers!

    No because the intake manifold gasket is already made of plastic and no one sells something like the Hondata intake manifold gasket.

    The craftsmanship of the intake is fairly decent with velocity stacks inside and all but I can't say the Fit gains really aything from it.

    I think that might be quite different if it was turbocharged but N/A I have found very little gains from bolt ons.

    If it was me I would recommend ECU tuning and a turbocharger system like the T1R or HKS kit if I was to recommend power adders.

    Here's a few pictures from this week's work. Worked on ekguy's 91 Legend Coupe.

    As some of you may know it had been limping around for some time on the previous transmission. After a new one was sourced it was time to swap the old for the new.

    Found it challenging working on this one as it seems the Acura engineers who designed this originally wanted to make the car RWD but never did so everything they did after that to make the transmission's location work makes it very difficult to install and remove as a lot of bolts have very limited access to them.

    With that said, I finally prevailed and the new transmission works beautifully





    Should have taken some of the underside of the car but as you can see quite a bit has to be removed to access the transmission.

    As always my photography skills are lacking and I should have taken more pics

    Does it every work beautifully. It works better than when my brother in law had it.

    Shifts smoothly. Today I get to tests it's highway abilities and see how it is. Drove it last night from when I picked it up all the way up to 3am and it only used a quarter tank. Haven't had mileage like this in a long time.

    Thanks again. This brought back the car to life.

    I just wanna say....

    I used Mr_ET for a clutch swap....and he was great right from the get go up until after the job was done.

    We had some hiccups along the way that were beyond anyone's control...but he motored on...and we got my Hollie back on the road.


    Dunno if it means anything but...

    I give Mr_ET my full endorsement....

    I think it's easy to see a lot of people have been helped by Etienne. I know he's going to be the first person I contact before I choose to get anything done in case he'll be willing to work on the Legend again haha. Think I'm going to make my next car something easier to work on.
