I am probably going to do my FMIC this time next week possibly, been having too much going on to focus on the car right now, and my week trip to Colorado is coming up soon too. It may wait until I get back. I am gonna pick up a Honda civic battery to run, I think I can fit it in next to the air filter, or on top of the transmission where the airbox brackets are. We'll see. Any recommendations on which batteries people are running? I don't want any super small gel style batteries, the car has to retain its daily driver status. I don't have subs or anything though, either.

Also looking for further recommendations on the next maintenance things to go through. I feel the FMIC is a good "maintenance" item considering the poor performance of the stock setup. Also will be good to clean up the engine bay and eliminate some redundant systems (read: vacuum lines) in there. I'll probably be removing cruise control while I'm in there.

Still waiting on my W2s too...

I can always go that route, I plan on replacing my battery anyway one way or another. Electrical work of any type terrifies me though, so I may have my Boeing electrical wizard friend do it for me. I'm really electrical stupid, believe me.

id go through and check every single bushing, bearing and brace. re-lube and replace what is needed drive it for a 2-3 weeks and see if anything else needs to be fixed up from there. fixing 1 problem usually causes another problem to arise.

i went to change out a wheel stud and now im doing every bushings, bearing and brace up front and im buying a shop press i can do do this for others.

yeah when I go 5 lug I will probably do subframe bushings. I have drivetrain decel noise so I probably will do the driveshaft also. Most of my free cash is going to my spare motor right now, Evan at EHMotorsports is doing all the work and I'm glad I'm having him do it. He did Efinix's engine as well.

I probably also will do some more work on the exhaust, it needs a new flex section and probably I will weld in a resonator to quiet it down a little. Fitment could be improved a little bit also but it is about 98% set. so I guess I have my work cut out for me for the next few months.

I run a 151R battery. its for a Civic hybrid/Fit... you can fit 2 of them in the OEM battery tray. I just put it all the way to the fender and cut the rest of the battery tray off. maybe I'll go take a picture...

Looks nice, how did the radiator fit? How's your heat and coolant temp?

100% perfect OEM fit. You can see my radiator mounts are a little worn out, but I can deal with that another time. I may do the window seal "mod" to fix em back up again.

Heat still roasts the cabin, no overheating issues before or after. I don't have a water temp gauge to tell you what the actual number is, but the car runs and drives as before. All new coolant, after install I had a shop pump everything out and fill with new. Has new thermostat and OEM CTS. I noticed the wires are a bit brittle down there so I will replace them at some point.

in other good news I had an interview today at my company for a promotion, went really well! I'm pretty sure I got the job, but I have a second interview coming up to show me off to my boss's boss's boss. just a formality pretty much, but wish me luck! the 15-20% pay raise would be pretty nice.

its been in there since I bought the car...so 2 years? she cranks over a little slow when its 20 outside with 20w50 vr1 in there lol. but no issues to speak of. they say 340cca, mine tested 470cca when I bought it. haven't tested it since.

damnit. my phone sucks for posting photobucket pics. I have a couple more....

I sell them for $99.99 +core here at work lol. Honda won't warranty them without a VIN though...

I have a friend with a fit, I could just give you his vin maybe. Although it would cost me that extra amount in gas rather than just buy one down here.

that looks like it would fit well, although I would be using my stock air can in that spot due to how my intake is designed, until I can run this GM MAF setup I have or 2g MAF or figure out some other way. I'd have to put the battery where the stock air can goes or back DSM style by the shock tower. That is definitely smaller than the stock battery though.

Here is the intake setup I have, complete with GM MAF. It leaves pretty much zero room in the stock battery location to put anything.

Move it to the trunk, you'll be happier. The radiator work you did is good, so now you have a baseline. Cooling problems sneak up on you with these cars. The peace of mind that you have (when you know you have fresh/ clean coolant and a new radiator) is priceless. I would get all your exhaust work done first before you slap suspension on. Do your suspension dead last.

yeah my plan was just to go nuts on maintenance and stuff, that is why I'm having my spare engine put together. So eventually I will also have a fresh motor from which to start. Next up I am gonna do the intercooler setup and battery relocation, then probably perfect the exhaust.

Do you have any recommendation on what I should do for the intake setup? I could just run the stock air can off that, I wish the MAF wasn't obnoxious and set up to have to be used in that thing, though. I would like to use this air filter, but not ready to set up GM MAF on my car.
