    Pulled out of my work today to have my car start bucking and hesitating really bad. It ran off and on for a few more minutes and eventually died. Thankfully I had my OBD2 scanner in the car with me (something I usually do). i plugged it in and it was a "ignition circuit fault". I had been contemplating removing my MSD box and switching back to a B13 distributor so I could run a full external coil, but as of yet had not had the time to do so. Needless to say my current modified dizzy was dead, and I swapped the replacement i had picked up to last until I swapped the B13 one in. So I was back on the road in a hour or two and no harm no foul.

      I just picked up a built head, which means I'm probably going to pick up a forged rods/pistons to go with it before installation.

          Lookin good man. You gotta dink with the camera a bit on the close-ups though. Looks like a pic I took. You can see how big the lobes on those suckers are too. It almost looks wrong. Should be great.

                  Sorry for the dumb question, but what purpose will the tap on #1 exhuast runner serve?

                    EGT... that's usually the runner to tap for EGT since it typically runs the leanest.

                      Interesting. Is this the normal placement for them? I just saw that you have Hankook RS2's going on. I have them on my S13 and have been pretty happy with them. They're at least as good as my skill level merits!

                        They are the only decent street tire that comes in the size I need. They'll work just fine I think. That is normal placement for the EGT (have them on both my cars=)

                          I ordered my new wheels today. 949Racing 6UL in 15x9 +36 I'm going to use the 225/45/15 RS2 for a street tire and 225/45/15 NT01 for the track. For a real competition though I'd probably order a set of the 275/35/15 (10") Hoosiers and use a 225/45/15 (9") Hoosier rear. The unforunate downside is that they won't be in until March...which sucks frankly, but it'll give me something to look forward to.

                            Another side note... I ordered Cosworth main bearings, rod bearings, and headgasket to get the new motor finished up. Shooting for 350-370 whp on pump gas. Here's the build sheet for it...from what i recall Lowport SR Head Ferrea valve springs Ferrea valves w/ coated surfaces Newer HLA setup (rev to 8.5-9k) JWT C1 Cams Stock cam gears (if I think there is something to be gained i'll switch to adjustable, but i think i'd wind up with them straight up anyway) Ported and polished head Cosworth headgasket Factory bore, pistons, and rods Cosworth main bearings (.0025 tolerance) Cosworth rod bearings (.0025 tolerance) Custom intake manifold will be up soon enough as well. (by JGS) Turbo setup will be as follows Turbonetics 50 trim .82 turbine housing with an E cover Fmax log manifold ceramic coated (as seen in picture) JGS Wastegate JGS 40mm Bypass valve Spearco intercooler core (endtanks by JGS) I'm running the tolerances loose to keep oil down there with the revs up.

                              Why such a large turbine A/R for just 350-370 whp? Looks like a nice setup overall though. Do you have another B14 that's a track car? Your comment about the Hoosiers and Nittos threw me off.
