    Fixed it. Of course it turned out to be simple and a stupid mistake in our end. All is well now, and hopefully I can keep this car on the road for a while longer. Old Hondas... eternity machines!

    I'm on my 3rd Alfa

    had a 155 V6, then a 147 1.6, and now a 2.0 166.
    I've done the fast loud thing, and now prefer my comfort lol, getting old I guess.
    but the 166 is great, full electric leather, all the bells and whistles, great for just wafting about in :)

    My first car will be a Alfa. :D

    I saw a awesome one few years ago, it wasn't expensive either.
    BMW 3 series are also not that expensive anymore, 2001/2002 models that is.

    My dad had one, he was stupid enough to change it for a VW Passat 2006.
    The BMW was waaay better.

    EDIT: I just bought a Gilera Ice bike, will post pics later.
    Unfortunately the head lamp is not working right, how could i have missed checking that. :bang:

    rambling on below
    I will be chopping off the bottom of the front bumper, and putting a ramp or making a whole new one from aluminum. As you can see from that one pic above that my front is too low and it scoops ups rocks and dirt like a shovel.

    [​IMG]

    I really need to lose more weight in the front. Thinking about:
    - lightweight hood from lexan or fiberglass (fiberglass cheaper, but more work)
    - lightweight battery (somewhat pricey)
    - lightened crank pulley (possible idle issues)
    - move coolant tank further back into the engine bay and to passenger side

    - I need to raise the front an inch also. You can see the tire almost touching the fender in the above pic
    - Need a set of dirt tires specifically for mud. That's about $600-800 :( The tires I have now are fine when it's dry.
    - Continue dropping weight. I think I'm going to chop the top part of the trunk off and replace it with lexan, because shaving the underside isn't helping drop enough.
    - Since I have a lexan fetish right now, I actually thought about gutting the doors, making a skeleton, and of course, put some lexan there.

    Why would you crap up that truck with those awful rims? Come on man, have some style.


    Just kidding, looks nice and clean. Avalanches are pretty nice.

    I've been gone for a month. That thing called life lol.

    Anyways, wanted to comment back on your statement. On this dyno back when I first put the car on there it "only" made 392rwhp/420rwtq. The dyno bay was 140 degrees and it was making peak power at around 5000rpms. I knew it had more in it as it made the 392rwhp at 5000rpms. That's what they make stock (for HP not TQ), and that engine redlines at 6500rpms. The torque curve just dropped like a rock and prevented it from making more power. The tuner (who was crap) said it was because of the weather and just reset the ECU when the weather is cooler.

    I did, and it felt "better" up top. I tracked it and did 11.78 @ 121.7mph on a street tire. I then went to a Vette dyno day recently and was shocked at how much knock the engine was having. Once again, it put down somewhat low numbers. Peak power once again only around 5000rpms as the torque curve dipped down hard about 40lb/tq at 5000rpms. Made around 405/410 +/- a few. I went back to the original installer and put it on the same dyno with a much more experienced tuner. I now have the 427/445 numbers. So same dyno went from 392-->427 and from 420-445.

    Here's granny shifting showing you the power/acceleration on the 427/445 numbers. It doesn't hook well in first.
