Default Re:my ugly ride *pics*

Thank you for all the positive comments, I was very determend to get this thing going, my wife will attest to that. Alot of what is on this site, and pgmfi were a great help. I started off 3 years ago with this thing, not knowing a thing about swaps/turbo's.
In fact, if it was'nt for my bro, it'd been sold awhile ago, thanks Neil. You see, he has a '99 si, when he took me for a ride, things started changing right then and there. Then he introduced me to a friend with the same car I had (w/ B16) that did it! I got ahold of a runnig '91 integra, yanked the motor out and in no time, I had myself a B18a1 in a base model Hatch. That's when my bro one up'ed me and put a turbo on.
So.. you see, I'm stuck. With this sick obsession for more power. I'm sure you know what I mean.

O.K. let me answer a few of these 's

I really didn't want to hack up my crossmember like that, but it was one of the last things holding me back, so I sliced and diced it. Gonna make a custom one, once my welding improves.
That load variance sucks! this morning I drove her to work, was boosting between 10 to 7psi, in that order, between 4k-5k rpms. wierd power band.
As I was getting on it I had downshifted to 4th (cruzin' at 65) and hammered it.. 2 sec later grabbed 5th... got over 90 and heard a noise... thought I ran over something, looked in the rear view and saw what looked like my rubber bumper, let off the throttle and thought for a sec.. remembered I hadn't attached the front part of the rubber wheel well. I had done this before, only not at 90 something.. the other side is gone too. Scared the **** out of me!
Well, on goes the quest for more.. more pics, vids, and speed. until then,
happy boosting.

If you call that ugly then wait until you see my kit when it's done. I think you did a good job. As long as it works then i don't really care about the looks.
