I'm making this thread to keep track of my trials and tribulati ons for the season.
This is my 2016 autocross thread - Atlanta region SCCA, SMF class

I currently have two cars that I run in this class:



91 civic Si - swapped b18c5 (jrsc @ 10 psi) - primary




88 civic std - swapped b18a1 (NA) - secondary

The eventual goal is to just have one dedicated autox car, that being the lighter 88 chassis - but of course that's subject to change; $ and time being the contribut ing factors.

Black car:

Yesterday I picked up some -12 AN fittings for the LHT air to water cooler.

Yet to be installed, I have a heat exchanger for a mustang cobra with SPAL fans, and a Bosch electric water pump to circulate the water.

I'm thinking of switching over to hondata s300, because chrome pro is disappoin ting me.

Depending on how you feel or when has a hickup there is always the other one?

I still need to finish my red hatch and the white one.

Yeah pretty much:

The grey car fills in when the black car explodes.

*knock on wood*

Yesterday was points #1.

In the black car, hondata s300 wasn't recording wideband o2 in my datalogs, so I couldn't street tune it.

I decided to play it safe and just drive the grey car for this event.

Did I mention it's totally not prepped?

It has lowering springs, no swaybars, a hankook / Toyo tire combo, and full interior.

Also, the ill-fitting temporary radiator and 30lb battery both need to be replaced!

It's open diff too! Lol. And second gear is shot due to the abuse it took when I broke the clutch pedal bracket recently.

I do have a spare 4.9 final drive tranny with helical LSD that I could swap in...


Anyway, here are my times:

Run 1: 46.695
Run 2: 45.945
Run 3: 45.451
Run 4: 44.971 DNF

Yes, I carried too much speed and flubbed the last cone at the end of the slalom before the finish gate and dnf'd.


Oh well.

It seems I'm in first place though due to lack of competiti on!

So this is happening ...



It's a heat exchanger from a mustang cobra upgrade package - I'm using it to cool the liquid going through the LHT air to water cooler post superchar ger.

I'm going to end up with it in front of the bumper for the most part - due to the ridiculou s size!

Because I can't cut too much into the bumper (bc of the 1lb rule), it will probably end up being halfway sunk in, but still protrudin g - sort of like:

Thanks to Richard for the bumper bracket:



I was able to get my air to water heat exchanger mounted. 

Now I just need to connect all the hoses and wire up the bosch water pump, and retune!

Points 6 event tomorrow, and Champion of Champions event Sunday!  :o
