you start getting over the 350tq mark.... thats when trans games can happen...the heavier you are the worse it is the hard you shift the worse it is

true, im pretty heavy and shifts are not smooth when spooling that much psi. so my trans has done well for the amount of abuse it has taken.

have you dynoed this bad boy yet?


Also i totally belive that if you could get this sucker to 2100lbs range.

One of my buddies pulled out all the wiring out of EF hb and only kept the wires needed for ingition, head lights, cluster, sensors & tail lights and we weighed the box of wring...

fucker was 45lbs of wiring
that's from a small ef hb dx. Now if you have a loaded prelude with pw, pl, sunroon all that crap you can easily easily gun 500lbs with out even having to do take out any cutting tools. lol

2800 to 2300 = easy
2300 to 2100, those last 200lbs is where you have to start cutting away carefully.

totally doable...

i did dyno the car but had issue's...a valve guide siezed causing exhaust valve contact on the number two piston top....so im goona need a head freshen up job and one new piston...never had any issue with this head prior too this...before we statrted too notice the issue the car was making around 200tq un corrected but horsepower was only 230whp...im sure it was because that cyclinder was causing issues

so the exhaust valve guide sized with the stem of the valve?
so you dropped a valve or no?
