Well played

I have an unhealthy desire to build a BP-powered Festiva. The only thing keeping me away is the total lack of decent tranny options :(

im only on my 11th tranny and 13th diff... and it locked up a few weeks ago... lucky number 12 is about to go in. apparently once i get a good LSD i only have to worry about the case splitting.

yep its the one i got from you. ill be doin a better job of gasket matching and installing a hondata intake gasket once i take it off.

What stops me is I can't find a festiva for sale that I'm willing to pay $$ for!

They're always completely and totally trashed yet the seller wants top dollar.


Are there really ANY good tranny options? I was of the assumption the EGT was but I guess not?


Oh, LOL @ Dyno video. GO....waiting....waiting...waiting...FULLLLLL BOOOOST!

looks way laggier than it is. the run started at 1800rpm

the best tranny option is get an adapter plate and run a turbo MR2 tranny. which is dimensionally impossible in the festiva. engine+plate and trans ends up being 5" wider than the distance from frame rail to frame rail.

im working on rods fool. im gettin LSD first. taller gearing and LSD will make it a more reliable rape all on freeway rolls

I have a couple crappy clips from when I was tuning it:



vs a big turbo (t70 or something) b16 civic


400whp CTS-V


another 400whp CTS-V


and another run




I have been in this car for over 20 different races, and it STILL scares the bejeezus out of me every time we go out. And I've been in my fair share of "scary" cars.
I hope JT posts up some more vids or links or something ,this car pretty much street races every single weekend and hits the strip every other wednesday.

Everyone in town knows it

forgot about the CTS-V's...that was a fun night... and to think i have an extra 20ish whp since then and the power doesnt fall like a rock at redline like it used to.

the fastest ive clocked on GPS was 163. not really by choice. a new V10 M5 wanted to run and i took a fender on him and was not willing to give it back. he let off when i hit my 7k rev limit and shot a fire ball out my bozo. i consider that a win.
