  1. Nor mine but what a great build. Amazing engineering for sure.
  2. Nice work. There is something satisfying for me in designing something in a solid modeling program and then walking out to the shop and actually bringing it to life. Or throwing it in the scrap bin because you had a better idea while machining it and decided to start over:)
  3. I'm still here. I check in every morning to read the 3 or 4 new posts and then lament the death of forums like this. Facebook made a big dent but also the price of the cars has made the perfect combo of too expensive for the initial buy in and the "should I really be cutting into this series 1 to put in this V10". MONZTER's return and posts is the most enjoyable HybridZ reading I've had in a while.
  4. Looks good. It's amazing how much stuff I ended up doing in house because outsourcing small runs became totally impracticle.
  5. WOW talk about a blast from the past. Welcome home.
  6. Thanks. You can't beat the Honda valve train parts and engineering.
  7. Being as I have a Speedhut GPS Speedo I haven't even thought about it:)
  8. So I'm going to be "that guy" that points out that's a caliper and not micrometer. Also you really need a good micrometer and standards to ensure you have good numbers. I highly recommend you take the crank to a machine shop and have it checked. I like digital micrometers but I always have the appropriate standard handy to make sure noting has electronically drifted.
  9. Well as I always say, "no kill like overkill". I always look at this stuff from a risk standpoint. If you are qualified to setup a new LSD and ring and pinion then there is minimal risk. If you have to send it out well then there's one level of risk. That was part of my decision to go with a newer used Subaru R180. It also comes down to driving style. beat the crap out of it on every shift (I approve) then you would want to overbuild.
  10. That's the nature of the beast on FB and reddit. A properly moderated forum like this one is the best for technical help but like all things in this world people want it now. What amazes me is in the time they typed out the question they could have googled it and got all the info they could want.
  11. I have the bell housings and shifter adapters done, What's left to do is to finalize the template to mark the transmission for cutting and to make some cross members. Both Chris at Godzilla and I are slammed right now and these las two items seem to keep dragging on and on. I have the install instructions almost done. The CD009 was a lot easier because the additional items like shifters and cross members already existed.
  12. This would be considered in my mind a very advanced swap in that to my knowledge no one has done it before you. If you have plenty of time then learning the fabrication skills and acquiring the necessary equipment and long term workspace would be first on the list. I've never done a swap but there is a very long list of items that need to work together for it to be a success.
  13. This looks really cool. One of the things I have always hated was getting out of the car to adjust the shocks for different conditions. A two hour drive I want them soft. Then back on the streets I want them firm. That price is getting pretty close to what I would justify as worth it.
  14. If you come up dry Godzilla Raceworks in Texas can help you.
