    is that epoxy EGR blockoff, somehow keyed into there, or will it get sucked into the motor when it eventually comes lose?

    You should've cleaned up the cam gear bolts.

    Anything thing I say is my opinion, all care, but no responsibility taken.

    I dont think it'll suck into the motor... lets face it, it would have to travel up that EGR runner, then past the EGR valve (which I havent decided if i'll bolt back on or not).
    I may purchase a blockoff plate for it...

    The cam gear bolts are as clean as they'll get unfortunately.

    the cam gears look good, long time since you bought them.

    yes! a loooong long time!
    September '07 I got them off you to be precise!

    They've been sitting in the box in the bedroom (along with the intercooler and tonnes of other parts) just waiting for this day to come...

    I'm actually seeing parts of the floor of the bedroom I hadn't seen for years!

    Just make the ERG plate yourself. Its just a plate with 2 holes and a gasket. Easy.

    I know, I did that for the original H23...

    But with the enginebay all tucked, this is gonna be kinda visible. Rosko makes a nice one. roskoracing.com

    So last night the boys (PJF_Lude and Scotty) and an interstate guest (Azjs) rocked around to mine for some group man-love (and man-drooling) over my engine...

    First thing we decided to do was install the timing belts and balancer belts and tension them.





    Then we mounted the turbo and front engine mount. We also clocked the turbo so the intercooler piping can run down across the front of the engine for a cleaner looking enginebay.



    Then some bright spark (me) decided it might be fun to try adjusting the valve clearance... turns out its not so fun! Here's the honda vtec valve clearance tool (not required, but makes the job a little bit easier).

    Anyway, after fiddling about for a while we decided it was a job for another night...



    Thanks for coming around fellas, was good to catch up again...

    Adjusting the valve clearances isn't a time consuming or difficult task, especially if the engine is out of the car. It should take less than half an hour to do the lot.

    However - it takes practice to learn exactly how much resistance you need to feel with the feeler gauges. It's a job I've done over a dozen time on my engine and its simply trial and error to find the exact sweet spot. If you don't get every single valve spot-on... tick-tick-tick-tick-tick.

    Also, be sure to check the measurement before and after you've tightened the nut with the torque wrench as the screw can shift slightly, changing the clearance.

    What did the tool from Honda cost you? Do you have a part number?

    Got the tool from Autotools.com

    I'm aware of the sound it makes if they're not adjusted correctly.

    And you're right, it shouldnt be too bad - except when its 12am and you've got to get up and work in the morning.
    Oh and you've got to drop someone home 30mins away...

    The last time I did it was the first time... took me around 2hrs, and I did 3 passes because I'm paranoid :S

    The Autotools.com tool actually does the job quite well, with its size, I think it could afford a little more accuracy in the adjustment. The difference between this tool and the BluePoint version ($60-$90 depending how you source it) is that instead of having a hex top for the locking nut tube, it's got a hinged hand grip instead.

    That being said, the main cause of pain was due to the clearances changing ever-so-slightly as soon as I tightened the locknut. Get a feel of how much the clearance may change and make that slight allowance when gauging the clearances.

    ps thanks for having us over!

    Here's some more pics of the turbo installed. I now have the dump pipe on there and the return oil hose to the oil pan. Which is also installed. You'll notice I'm taking heat very seriously. I've also got a turbo "bag" which is supposed to keep the heat in the turbo and prevent it escaping into the enginebay.









    Here's the first part of the intake manifold installed. I realised I didnt get a set of gaskets for it - stupid honda and their "head gasket kit" doesnt include the intake manifold ones.



    Here's the oil pan installed.



    And the turbo.
