about the PSI: i did do 17psi but i didnt realize it till i did the calculations here. 14.223 X 1.20
about the engine: it was about the size of my old GSR's engine, maybe a little bigger but nothing noticable. my old GSR was a 1.7L engine but from the outside looked exactly like the regular 1.8L. that car was pretty sleeper-ish itself since even 95% of acura/honda guys didnt even know my car existed (1992 integra GSR, 1.7l dohc vtec, 160hp stock, did some intake/exhaust mods, great gearing, pretty light car). the only people who really knew what it was were the type of people who spread/gained knowledge on the internet boards, etc. the engine on this teg was definately a B Series, under 2.0 or 1.8
about him getting tuned: i never said he's getting it tuned, just a tune up. he was saying his spark plugs are all messed up or fouled or something from something that he did earlier and it's not running right, i forgot what he said exactly. also his engine was making a not-so-healthy rattling noise when idling
and none of those cars look familiar on that site. this one wasnt really fixed up at all on the outside, looked and sounded totally stock. the modified exhaust could have passed as a modified tip only, it was pretty quiet when just driving around but got semi-loud in the race.
im not planning on betting 100 unless i feel my car is running faster than it did that day. ive already taken out all the crap in the car and am currently working on tuning it. im trying to both tune the UTEC+AVCR, and also trying to tune the AVCR on it's own since the UTEC/AVCR combo looks like is not going to be ready any time soon, too much knocking
if i do race though i'll try some octane booster or something possibly. or maybe i shouldnt since ive never tried that stuff in this car. actually im sure we will be racing again, but for another $40 or a lot more depends on how i feel the car is tuned and running
