That's pretty interesting, thanks for the information.

Were you referring to the built in restrictor that I mentioned in my last post?

no, I somehow glazed over that.
IIRC a .5 or .65 restrictor is good. what you linked is just a AN flange. with a restricted hole.

you said your line is a NPT line? in that case, I'd get a NPT threaded restrictor.

A .5mm hole is only .019", seems much to small, most I see recommended are .065" which is 1.65mm for journal bearing

Yea I bought a fitting from lowes that fits, but according to the link on eBay it is AN threads so maybe the fitting I bought from lowes doesn't fit as good as I thought.

IDK if it helps or not, BUT you really dont need that fpr. Good part is its not a junk aem one.

Anyways you can convert the oem fuel rail to a -6an. For my crx I need a -6an in and out so I converted it.

That is pretty baller I must say 8) HiProfile recommended that I get a fpr to keep the fuel pressure more stable

New dx rack from eBay since my rack got donated to a civic wagon :lol: Also got some moog outer tie rods for this thing. My energy bushings also got donated to the wagon so I bought prothane bushings for the rack.

Image

Got the fpr hooked up

Image

Other than that I put the oil pan back on and put the rear upper control arms back in (this thing has been a parts car lately). The only "big" projects left are getting the tunerview 2 to work and finish retro fitting it in the cluster, along with buying a small battery and relocating it in the lock box.

Tuner view 2 is cool but the new tunerview app for android is simply badass! The built in racemode display with the [crud] light!

That app does seem pretty cool, but I'm going with the tunerview 2 as long as I can get it to work with crome (I was having issues previously when I tried to get it to work).

If anyone wants to help me out with my no start problem that'd be much appreciated

Now the car turns over but doesn't start, can anyone input some tuning wisdom? I kept adjusting the fuel pressure and the fuel values in the fuel multiplier table which made things a little better but I never got it to idle by itself.

Also, does anyone know where the iacv plug is on the engine harness? The only cel I have is for the iacv which I know is extremely important while trying to start this thing, and originally I didn't have it plugged in. I saw that the same part of the harness that goes on the back of the block for the alternator had a coolant sensor/plug that was the same, so I tried plugging that in but the code still didn't go away.

I originally thought that but I had a label on the tps plug that said tps so I don't think I did, I'll have to look at it more on the weekend

Last night I ordered some 16 gauge sheet metal to make a battery mount; I'm going to see if I can make the stock battery fit behind the bumper as is and hope for the best. If it doesn't fit then I'll either delete my washer tank or get a pc680, but I'd really prefer to not get a smaller battery as I don't think it'd be very reliable. We'll see I guess.

I also ordered a circuit breaker and some ring terminals, but I'm going to wait until the weekend to see how the battery fits. I think I'll be good running 4 gauge wire to the starter if the battery is behind the front bumper, but if I end up putting it in the trunk then I'll probably just end up going with 2 gauge and putting a cutoff on the back of the car

Same thing has happened to me twice. It's usually the cap and/or rotor. No joke also they're cheap

^ It ended up being the map sensor, I'm not sure why because I set it up for the 3 bar but once I changed it back to the stock map it started right up.

Got this welded :lol:

Image

As of now it's impossible for me to run a high beam bulb but I'm glad that a filter fits in there

Image

I ended up getting it running but it was extremely rich (like 10 afr), tried messing with the tune but just ended up in the car not starting so I'll mess with it again next weekend

PC680 is the way to go. It will be fine as long as your car has no parasitic drains. I found this company that makes a bracket for it exactly like the PW:JDM one except its aluminum. They have one powdercoated black for a couple bucks more. I'd splurge for the odyssey charger and use the pigtail to trickle your battery when you're not planning on driving it for extended periods of time.

Thanks for the link, as of now I got the stock battery to fit where the washer reservoir was but if I end up buying a battery I'll probably pick the pc680.

Well long story short after my first test drive it started knocking

Image

I think this is the result of cranking it a billion times (without starting) while trying to mess with the tune. A month or so ago the engine was ripped out and here's how it sits today

Image

If everything goes as planned I'll be picking up a jdm b20 this weekend, and once I get it running I'll be giving the car to my little brother :| It's been fun but right now I don't have the time/money to mess with it. I still have my daily crx so at least I'm not leaving for good :lol:
