As some you may know this car was gifted to me by Jeff aka duraldc. I am extremely honored to receive the car and have been spending many hours bringing this classic back to life. So far, with the help of Tony aka Debow, we have determined the engine is healthy with good compression. The spark plugs were extremely shot and gapped at roughly .080. The plug wires were jellow and it was missing a clamp on one of the ic pipes. We had to push start it to get it home but brought a trailer just incase. With these few changes the car starts right up with no issues. After all maintence was complete the car runs and drives ok. Also added some after market parts I had laying around.Most of my hours on the car have spent on wet sanding and cleaning, installing a new headlight and starting on some minor rust issues. Enough chit chat, here are some pics.

We later found out the exhaust cam was off one tooth.

If this turns out anything like your other car the PO no doubt made a wise choice giving it to you. Can't wait to see what you do with it.

It's just a civic radiator 92-99 or something like that. Just make sure to get the 3 row.

After getting everything back together and ready for a drive I decided to check the timing, the exhaust cam was off one tooth! Ended up carefully removing the cam gear while rotating to it's needed position, this took 4 hands but the car runs very smooth now and actually has some power. It's currently on spring pressure at about 8 psi. no issues to report and the Spal fan kit works amazing. Going to put the same kit on the Mirage if I can make a little more room. Once the old gas runs out we will turn the boost up a few lbs. and go from there. The new mustache bar is now paint matched along with the Grill. Bumper and hood work next.

That was the old trick for getting more power up top with the 4g61t. Retarding the exhaust cam 1 tooth with stock cams, IIRC.

I'm not sure which way is considered retard but the cam was rotated CCW, it definitely lacked power and rev speed at that time.
