    Ugh more delays. I've had to take time off to work on my stupid Civic. The exhaust finally let go with yet another cracked pipe. One of the exhaust hanger locations rusted through the welds and split the exhaust in half. So now I've purchased a full stainless steel exhaust that included the header all the wait back to the muffler for $170. However you get what you pay for. After installing everything except the last high flow cat pipe (ie larger ID straight piper) I found that it was 4" to short to reach the down pipe and it's kicked off to the right side of the car by about 1".

    So... out comes the cut off wheel, TIG welder, and chop saw. I'm working on welding in the old legit cat that I bought for it before and then cutting up some 2.5" stainless steel pie's to weld up a bend to mate it up to the down pipe.

    If I can get to it I plan to install the pyrometer this weekend using the old EGR tube connection on the rear header. Does anyone know what the thread of that port is? I'm thinking I can just by a cap and weld in an adapter for the thermocouple.

    You don't need a seat to start the car :)

    That car is going to be a beast.

    Let me rephrase that a matter piece.

    Auto Meter Cobalt Pyrometer ordered (p/n 6945).

    Corbeau FX1 Pro almost installed on a manual driver side seat bracket. I'm going to have to weld some flanges on the front mounting and use the side mounting bolts.

    Trimmed up my fiberglass pod for the HKS boost controller display.

    Perhaps. Assuming the HKS progressive boost controller goes in nicely and I can get the GM/Hella vacuum pump wired and working July shouldn't be a problem.

    The DIS-4 fits like a glove!

    And I like tidy wires.

    Launch scheduled for July 2014?

    Fuel pump controller is wired up and installed and so is the MSD DIS4. Next up is the mounting and wiring of the HKS boost controller.
