B20 STUFF (THE SAGA OF MY FAMILY’S ’99 CRV) PART 5

For the past couple of weeks i’ve had to put the blog, my dads crv, and my b16 swap on the backburner, because i’m applying for a better position at work and have had to focus all of my attention on that.

Thanks for coming back for part 2! I know this might not sound like, or even be the most exciting thing to read about, but for me its more than just replacing a motor in a 20 year old car.

It’s just raw, working on a basic daily driver…
