    A small update from last night:



    I cleaned up the dash and mounted the tunerview properly... I plan on replacing the tunerview display with a VFD so it matches the colour of the rest of the gauges and looks a little more OEM.
    I've got AUDM EL gauges







    Also worth mentioning is the tweeter covers from the later 94-96 model. They suit the dash better imo.

    Can you actually comfortably see what the tunerview says from the driving position?

    Nevertheless, awsome updates! Can't wait to see a video of this in action!

    Yup, just as comfortably as I can see the fuel/temp gauges or the clock (when it used to be there).

    Its an AEM fuel rail. Stock FPR though. There's no need for a bigger or adjustable FPR. As the gauge tells me I'm getting spot on fuel pressure as is.

    Agreed, the seats really are sex. They hold you tight like a fat bitch after icecream and pity sex...

    Thanks Scotty, the car is finally looking like it could be on the road very soon! Really excited.

    Also, I took my intercooler pipes in to get welded up - its getting done at ARE at brendale. If you need aluminium welding done - these guys are awesome.
    Welding and bead rolled pipes should make sure the couplers dont come off.

    As long as you're not looking to up the pressure....

    I'll take that as it comes I guess - if I start needing more fuel, I'll get an adjustable FPR. Not a big deal atm.

    So this weekend I made some good progress with the intercooler setup.

    I bought some industrial heat proof insulation sleeve - looks like this:



    Then I wrapped it in some black Tommy Tape (great stuff) to get rid of the orange - sorry phattzy!



    And it ended up like this:



    I wanted to stop the cooler pipe from rubbing on the radiator and the AC compressor. I also wanted to keep the heat out of the intake charge as much as possible as its right next to the dump pipe.



    After the painful installation of the radiator it was on to hooking up the rest of the now fully welded pipes.













    I took some close ups of the welds to show the neatness.


    Then I bolted up the upper mounts of the radiator.




    Good news - theres no leaks and definate boost pressure from the turbo.
    I'm getting around 1psi with no load on the motor when giving it a good blip of the throttle.

    Engine is running healthier than ever and idles really smoothly.

    Coolant temp comes up then stays steady at 87deg once the fans come on.
    The intercooler was obviously doing its job after feeling the hot and cold sides once there was some heat in the enginebay.

    All in all, good progress for the weekend.

    Okay, small update. Some may know I've had some issues with shifting / shift cables etc.

    The story:
    Installed the new engine/gearbox assembly. To my dismay I found I couldnt shift into 2nd/4th/reverse gears. After fiddling about for a while Ian and I realised pulling the cables off the transmission would allow us to check if it was cable related or gearbox related. So after proving the gearbox shifts fine into the lower gears by manually moving the selector arms. I moved my attention to the shift cable. It turns out the large cable wont "pull" far enough to put the gearbox into the "lower" gears.

    The comparison:
    I have since pulled out the original shifter cables that came on the h23 car. I have layed it down beside my replacement shift cables (I think they're from a vtec prelude but could be wrong).

    As you can see quite clearly in these shots, I've "pulled" the cables as far as they'll go towards the "back" of the car as they would sit in the enginebay - and sure enough, it seems like the origina h23 shifter cable jams up or stops about 30mm short of the replacement vtec one. I'm pretty certain on installing the vtec cables I will have no problem shifting into the lower gears.



    So I'd like to hear from anyone who's done a H23 to H22 swap on the transmissions, did you have to swap the shift cables also? or are my shift cables from the H23 stuffed and need to be thrown out?
    Please dont reply unless you've actually witnessed this yourself or done a swap. I dont want heresay information you found on the internet somewhere.

    Cheers.

    Just some more information - from what I've seen on american parts websites, the part number for H23 and H22 shifter cables appears to be the same.
    Must be a co-incidence that my shift cables are stuffed at the same time I'm swapping engines/gearboxes.

    Nice quality build, welds look great too. That black wrap, does it take to heat well?

    On the cable issue I used the old H23 cables with no issues, not sure what happened to yours since they worked fine on your last setup. Maybe they got pinched along the line while the work was being done.

    BRING BACK THE FORUMS!

    Yep, the black wrap is over 200deg capable. Its awesome stuff.

    Yeah, I think something went wrong somewhere between pulling the old motor and installing the new one.

    Thanks flip!
