Re: Frankensteins Official Thread

Should be relatively easy with the tl ecu and Powertrain. In fact the wheel should be the easiest part to set up. The hardest part will be the mounts and engine setup. As far as putting the power down thatís no issue because Iím literally just moving the engine back. Not transversing it or anything. No weird custom driveshafts or anything. The reason I want to use the coupe is because it literally looks like a mini nsx to begin with. Mostly for the trunk style and what you said. Those tail lights lol. Once Iím done with my sedan Iíll probably start this project. Might take me a few years but I should be able to pick up a coupe at some point for next to nothing. Especially if itís got a blown motor.

Frankensteins Official Thread

Alright dudes. After like 3 plus months of heavy engine braking, surging and hesitation I finally figured it out. I had a chip for the ecu made until I can get a tune. I told the tuner I wanted the iacv and Iab disabled for a few reasons. The individual throttle bodies in the manifold on the f20b are electronically and vacuum controlled. The block box had the nipple broke off the end so those were useless.

The iacv I wanted disabled because I would have to swap manifolds to go from 3 wire to 2 wire for my obd1 ecu. I chose an obd1 ecu so I can get tunes and upgrades later. So having no check engine light it was always in the back of my head that it could be the iacv since I had this issue before and it was the problem on my h23a1.

Few things I tried they probably needed to be done anyways: seafoam, clean out egr port, egr block off, PCV hooked up until I can get a catch can and all vacuum lines were triple checked and capped with vacuum caps.

Today I kept looking at the iacv I pulled a few weeks ago from a junkyard integra. Itís been sitting on my dresser for a while. Decided to finally go try to hook it up since I had nothing to lose. Fired up the car after wiring it up and I felt the solenoid click and the hesitation was gone. So Iím sure if anyone has low rpm hesitation but vtec engages itís probably not your tps, itís most likely your iacv. Long winded but Iím excited to drive a normal car again

Re: Frankensteins Official Thread

Found some wicked terminal corrosion. Seemed to happen overnight. Since I just put about 1000 continuous miles on the car Iíll watch it and see if it comes back. Maybe going from Florida straight to pa had something to do with it?
