F20/H22 complete cooling system upgrade civic chassis specific (nate’s car)

F20/H22 complete cooling system upgrade civic chassis specific (nate’s car)

About a year ago Nate bought his 92 F20B swapped civic SI, and since then we have been slowly fixing up what the previous owners had done poorly. Ever since he bought the car there has been small pin hole leak in the radiator. It was nothing to worry about, just would drip a couple of drops out while driving splashing coolant drops on various parts under the hood. As many of you should know, the cooling system is a…

A Daily for my daily…

A Daily for my daily…

Last Wednesday February 27th between 10:00am and 2:00pm my daily EK was stolen from my work parking lot! While I was no more than 300 feet away inside my work! For my whole life I have always been extra cautious about things that I owned and gone the extra mile to make sure they haven’t gotten stolen. When I was growing up we lived in an upscale part of southern California but it was a constant struggle for my parents…

Patrick’s double duty S2000

Patrick’s double duty S2000

I’ve known Patrick now for about 8 years. When I first met him he came rolling up in a Integra with black painted spoon calipers, and black painted Teins. I was appalled that someone would disgrace a spoon caliper like that. He said the reason he was doing it was to be more low-key, which I half way agreed with. But still you don’t dishonor a spoon caliper by changing its appearance, it would be like painting over the Mona…

If you’re curious with how it all started, follow the link below. http://functiontheory.com/2018/06/new-supercar-experimental/ It is a great read, very personal, and also lots of photos. From day one, this car has been plagued with light surface scratches and swirl marks from years of hand washing. Most average consumers don’t know any better. Car wash technology and practices have grown leaps and bounds from what it was 20 years ago. Yes, there has always…

You have what engine in there?!

You have what engine in there?!

When I first met Nate I’m sure neither of us knew what good friends we would become. It all started 5 years ago or so with motorcycles and some mutual friends that brought us together, you see 5 years ago I had just inherited a Yamaha FZ09 from my brother and I was new to motorcycling. Some longtime friends of mine had mentioned that there was a guy they knew that had just gotten a bike too, and that I should ride with him….

How to clean K20 Idle Air Control Valve (IACV)

How to clean K20 Idle Air Control Valve (IACV)

I am making this post because… When i first started up my brothers K swap I was first excited that it was running well, but after a min of smooth idle it would begin to surge. Which as most Honda owners know its most likely a Throttle Position Sensor ( TPS ) issue or a IACV issue. So after checking my voltage and correctly setting the TPS the motor would still surge once it was warmed up. (bummer)I did some…

Lets go back to May2014…I might have a hard time getting the story to make sense, but just try and keep up.  My brother has always had the…
