  1. Not enough love heart reacts for this mate, Laverda triples were a major object of adoration for me as a kid. I have this old book which basically details every new bike you could buy in 1976 or so, and the Laverda pages were heavily thumbed over! Looking forward to it shaping up.
  2. Just dredging this doubtful post up for relevance.
  3. A wee while off yet, I need to fix the gearbox and tidy up a few little jobs. But mainly fix the gearbox and get a few KM on it so I'm confident it won't kill @cletuswhen he has a burn in it during the process of making it legal. Although, judging by some of the shit both he an LVVTA post on their respective socials, this thing seems reasonably well screwed together.
  4. Anyway, this car is now tuned. @kprkindly agreed to handle the tuning duties, following some initial setup by @Stujust to get me running in the meantime. Some things to note : 1 - the gearbox is still not good, downshifts into 3rd and 2nd are the absolute pits. 2 - this tune is still done with the stock head and cams, attached to the high-comp bottom end. Here's a short clip of the final dyno pull, Kris managed to eke 100kw out of it, the engine wasn't keen on taking a lot of timing due to my wack combo, but this is decent regardless I think. Anyway, it's a little smok
  5. Here we go then with another sporadic update. So, encouraged by a few people I have been putting in a little bit of effort on this in an attempt to get it to Toyota Festival, later this month. Nick the Sparky and I put in a couple of days in the shed at his place, where he did sparky things, I occasionally helped with sparky things, but I also stripped the old interior and put the new bits in. From there, I took the car to @sheepers, and he did some choice stuff for me which included a driveshaft loop, and mounting the freshly retrimmed Recaro LX (Fishnet) seats. Also while it
  6. The actual reality is, there was no top end increase... having a dearth of anything in the lower RPM just exacerbated that rip-snorting 74kw at the upper rev limits so it felt like it had more!
  7. Took it to the drags, ran a best of 14.3 @ 97mph and then a string of 14.4s all day. I think it's got more in it, I just need to not drive like a dickhead. So I gave it a wash (since we're allowed to in Auckland now) and took a few pics of current state of play, wearing the OEM skirts, Advan RGs, Mugen bits under the bonnet etc. 2000 Honda Integra Type RX-1087-Edit by Richard Opie, on Flickr 2000 Honda Integra Type RX-1172-Edit by Richard Opie, on Flickr 2000 Honda Integra Type RX-1096-Edit by Richard Opie, on Flickr 2000 Honda Integra Type RX-1100-Edit by Richard Opie
  8. I immediately thought of PLAYLD, which had the YB in it and the mahoosive stereo and TVs and everything, back in the glory days of 4 n Rotary.
  9. Someone find me photos of these things slammed on cool wheels and convince me it's a good idea.
  10. You start it, I'll contribute. Also, Alex you have truly gone down the March rabbit hole. Now you know how I feel about Integras. Also, an E-prefix before a chassis code is usually a Japan emissions standard. After E, Japanese cars were prefixed GF, then GH, etc. etc. E came about in 1978 or so I think, even my KP is E-KP61 as it had all the gubbins associated to meet the standard.
  11. Still haven't gotten around to getting out with the real camera, but here it is on the RG with the tyres from the original white wheels fitted up, as the 205/50 that came on the Advans were balloon as. I also had all the kerb damage on them tidied up and the edges repainted, they all look pretty mint now. Very happy. Spent the weekend putting km's on it, and loved every one. This car rules.

  12. So sheepers popped around, we did a bit of a bolt check, clipped all the fuel and brake lines up and then the above happened. How cool. The tune is only very beginning stages so I couldn't give it any real beans under load yet, but ambling around on part throttle was super great. The brakes feel awesome, as does the suspension. Things to look at include (and this is for my reference): - fix/adjust clutch so shifting is hopefully easier - move exhaust to drivers side so muffler is away from rear passenger side wheel - resolve tacho and speedo not working - roll rea
  13. I'm not gonna lie, it's pretty cool.
  14. Been a long time no update but anyway thanks to Stu and Sheepers and Nick the Sparky this is where we are at. Weird. Went pretty smoothly, it's spooging a bit of oil out the breathers on the top but I guess once it's run in that'll settle down or it'll just keep doing it cos 4AG life. I have 5 forward gears, a clutch that works and some brakes so with a few hours checking things and tidying up small jobs there's nothing stopping me from going for a wee drive. Oh the thermostat doesn't seem to be opening but that's not really a big deal to sort out hopefully, it might just be ol
