Default Finally got my 10AE back on the road

100K on the chassis. 36K on the 2004 motor I just dropped in.

I'm remembering how slow this thing is. I was going to use and MSD switch to control VVT till I saw y8s saw some vavletrain damage from that. Perhaps stiffer valve springs would fix that?

Thought I would see what the latest DIY turbo setups are running these days. I'm suprised that cast iron manifolds are $400.

I might just make my own. Anyone making exhaust and T2 flanges?

He's talking about turbo manis.

Weirtech sells flanges for DIY turbo manis. I used them for my build and others have as well. Best place to find him is on hondatech.
