Nooo way jose. Boost is not good for road racing. Plus I want a completely new platform to start on. I'm all about naturally aspirated all motor cars. Boosting is the cheating way out of making power.



Also I'm picking up a Red Status Ring Standard FIA seat for a crackhead of a deal price!!

This is a 700 dollar seat brand new, and I'm getting it for more than %70 less of what it's worth. Yet this is a legit FIA approved seat, no replica here!

Well last time I mentally dynoed my civic, it was at....20whp for the intake, 20whp for the headerback, and 15whp for the gutted trunk. So I'm thinking my car is pushing around at least 150whp on a stock d16z6.

Yup for now. Seeing as one of these seats is 700 brand new, I'll have to wait for a while. Or sell it and get a pair of recaro replicas.

there might be an issue with pressing these into place. i though u were using energies that dont come with the pin in place already so we could just lay the TA on the press, put a block on to of the bushing, then press it in. but your pin is going to get in the way of that.

Ohh shizzz. Yeah that is true. We might have to set the "piston" on the side of the bushing so it won't damage the pin, then apply pressure on the other side of the bushing using mine or your man power so it goes in evenly.
