IT LOOKS GREAT THOUGH! if you dont mind me asking WTF DO YOU DO FOR A LIVING?

    Also enjoy the liscense plate! honda-tuners will hate you!

    Love your car, that looks awesome, as well!
    I'm in IT (infoTech) and I've really p*ssed some serious cake into this car. A LOT more than I expected, to be honest initially $6K was my ceiling.

    Let me add, that aside from a new OEM tranny, I recently added:

    A New (OEM block) Axis Stage II EJ25 Motor, with Cosworth oil pump and CP Forged Pistons. ARP head studs, etc.

    Turbo XS (flex) U/P (no more shat U/P gaskets!)


    waiting on: A Chargespeed lip and either Beatrush C/F brake ducts or a JDM Big Foglight kit. On the fence right now.
    Thanks for the kind words, I really love your car with all the C/F. Very tasteful!

    Alright numbers...that looks closer to OTS Cobb Stage 2 though.

    What kind of dyno were you on? And you can handle daily driven boost at 20psi (20.5-21ps even) if you wanted to bump it up a bit more

    No, a Stage "2" won't get you 350WHP, period.
    More like 300 wheel. I had a Cobb AP Stg 2, way back when.
    I don't do "dyno queen" pulls, or I could tweak almost 400 out of it, all my car's power is "safe", D/D-Style.
    The boost is too low, though, the car should be peaking at 21-22#, not 18+, so a re-work in order.
    Next, a ShopCT tune, and a twin-scroll 30 or 35R, I thinkses.
