Pretty much sums it up nicely.


The back support is perfect, no complaints.   But during any drive over 30 minutes, it's unbearable.  The bottom is too stiff and flat - and without having an adjustable bottom like the stock seats have (or euro r accord seats) it gets really uncomfortable with my seized up ankle.

So I'll be getting my stock seat fixed and use that until I decide if I want to go through with buying Euro-R accord seats or not.  






Update!

Car runs.  SO much smoother than it did before - i can only assume it's because the balance shafts are actually moving the way they're supposed completely ass backwards as they were found.

Still unsure about my timing belt tension.  So far i've had no solid answers on PZ.  

Lower timing cover is pretty much shot.  Will probably end up buying a new one Sad


So now that it runs, onto stage 2 but with another issue.  I can't install the AEM fuel rail with the stock fuel line and need a new one made.  But I can install the fuel pump on the next nice day.

So, deadline for the bay to be done (besides the abs issues) and everything together where I want it for the year is April 21st.

Euro-R crank pulley cleaned up and paint matched.   I forgot to take a before picture, it was BAD... so much rust...

Also, extended and heat treated header studs.

Fuel pump is installed.


Also hit 144,000 miles today - exactly 30k since I purchased the car, 3 years ago last month.


So I've only driven it 10k a year.... taking into consideration how many Prelude meets I attend.... I don't drive this car enough.

Ordered a new lower timing cover and drivers side seat base today.


$260 in the wrong direction....

Need to sell the Corbeaus and ADR's so i can put that towards the EMU.


Decided to hold off on injectors, as much as i'd like to just do them now and get it over with vs dealing with the install later on, but the funds just will not permit that + another dyno session.


So remaining purchases are in this order;

emanage ultimate
oil catch can
high a/c line
abs lines

later on;
mizu radiator
injectors

I probably have most of them from our past research XD   but they're all over, so yeah that would help.



Going to take the line and car up to my other uncles shop and see what he can do - he makes solid lines for classic cars apparently....worth a shot.
