Had her dynoed just for poops and giggles. Not sure what my plans are motor wise. Currently just an OBD1 converted ZC/Z6 mini-me. Basic bolt ons, nothing special, but I was pretty happy. I'll have the graph up tomorrow when I have access to a scanner.
Figuring 15% drivetrain loss that puts me at about 120HP at the crank. Not bad for a low budget setup, and I'm still getting 35-40mpg. <3 my crx. Plus it's purple, so I automatically win, kthx!
As far as future mods I think I'm going to get some headwork done on a Y8 head I have laying around. Put the AKMEE valve train in, and maybe invest in a really nice exhaust manifold. Daily driver, so I've dropped the turbo idea for the time being (more maintenence and worries etc). Might get a D15B VTEC and just build that. All up in the air though!
Doh. Noticed my timing was set all wrong. So I think i'm actually making more power. Timing needs to be advanced about 10-15 degrees to account for my mini-me hybrid as well as the milling of the head. So I think it might be a little more than that in reality.
You know, everyone says that! I am not much of a tuner so I do not really appreciate the dyno. But it does seem like I have a decent engine. It was mated to a auto tranny so it was probably driven by a woman in Japan. No japanese man would drive a sports car with an automatic. So I probably got a ZC that was not ragged on.
At a 15% loss, 104whp is 122.3 fhp. People always say there's a 10-15% loss in our fwd Hondas so I cut it right down the middle at 12.5%... with that figure you're making 118.8 fhp. Sorry purp, no offense intended but that number sucks for the setup you have.
If you're 10-15 degrees off on timing that can be worth a whole hell of a lot.
I presume the p28 ecu is being utilized so it should make 125 stock add 10-15 for ihe.
