I still dont have a boost gauge or controller. Is it a good idea to run the car after all this stuff without them? worst that can happen is it hits fuel cut, but will these mods get it to that point easily?

That rear floormat is badass! Did the USDM models get those too?

oh...wait I just remembered that the JDM cars had a rear center seatbelt...so that would explain the mat. it's still really cool though!

nice, i just noticed the center mat. and the center seat belt.

i guess asian guys are small enought to fit three back there. i know i can't even sit up straight in the back, let alone fit back there easily....

i voted no on the MHG, however if you decide to do it and the arp headstuds, you will be set up to 350 whp or so. if i had the engine out of the car to do everything your doing, i would do it, but thats me

My back seats get used alot actually :( Which i HATE. because it usually means someone pulling on something in the cab to haul their ass out.

thats why i was considering pulling them out and replacing with bins. but they are so nice looking.... ill just have to have a no back seat policy lol

EDIT: check the "Delete Poll" Box when you edit the first post lol


Odd, I checked all of my posts from the beginning of my thread, until the poll is over and I can't find any options for the poll at all. :(

Just received my ORC clutch in the mail.

all i can say is SWEEEEEET. what a work of art.

The TO bearing is very odd. and looks very nice. about 2x the width of OEM.

Mine looks a bit different from the pics of Meurz' and Sikx' clutches.

I'll post up pics tomorrow. It came with flywheel bolts, lube, instructions (in japanese) and stickers. but no alignment tool :(

I test fitted it onto my tranny, and it slid on very easily.

Cant wait :)

Edit: Ted, you have PM

Thanks :) im really excited to see how it performs.

Its heavier than i was expecting. but I guess thats what 10 kg feels like lol. hard to beleive the stock clutch is 7 pounds heavier.

for those who are curious. Final total from rhdjapan...... $1120 shipped with duty to canada - fedex air mail took about 5 days - After over 1 month of waiting for them to ship.

I ordered it end of November. Based on the newspaper used to pad the the ORC box itself, in the larger box, they packaged it on the 15th of dec.

And it didnt ship till Jan 4. Arrived on the 9th.

its a good thing im still waiting on my exhaust manifold :twisted:

I'm a bit worried about something though.

The TO bearing is pretty thick. I've also got the extended slave push rod.

Will this be too much? would the clutch fork even fit okay?

get an Odyssey battery & that will drop about 30lbs of weight right there.

i would buy a boost gauge, even if just a cheapy one so you can see where you are rather than guessing, especially upgrading to the KO DP it's fun to see how much of a boost increase you get. :)
the stock one is absolutely worthless & is painfully slow to respond.

good luck with all the maintenance - you're gonna learn a lot in the process :)
