Good for when you need to check your oil on the run.

i have a civic that uses not ONE drop of oil between oil changes. There is no need to check.

Jeff, wd-40 on your wheels? Think about what WD-40 is... What is right behind your wheels? Brakes... You get any kind of oil or liquid on the pads that is'nt brakleen they'll be tainted forever. You's crazy man....

I raced the 250 against the 125 a-while back. The 125 killed it off the line and top speed. Let me know before Bill buys it and we'll see if your "tune up" helped any

btw: do you have anything that can braise? I need to fix the exaust on the 125 and my welder is too hot for it.

Upped the boost pressure to 11psi (7 stock) and added a cone filter/adapter.

Next up, a/f gauge, downpipe and 15 psi.

yep, its working great, hasn't spiked on me once. Jumps right up to 11psi and holds there solid.

edit:
And we got it set to 11psi on our second adjustment haha, it was a nice change from how things were going so far

i thought you were spraying it onto the wheel, but also just think wd-40 is like a lubricant... it is going to help attract dust aswell. where a good wheel cleaner will leave them clean and dry. i dunno w/e your choice

finally got a few things done today:
visual imagery here http://www.imagestation.com/album/?id=2131074340

-took out my intercooler.
-flushed the fins of it with soapy water, got rid of alot of flies and sand
-flushed the inside of it with gasoline, got rid of alot of oily deposits and shit that reduces it's efficiency
-removed some gay plastic thing that suposedly ducts air towards the intercooler, but looks like it restricts flow to it.
-polished up the end tanks a bit...
-ported my throttle body elbow.. it had a nice sharp edge protruding into the airflow
-painted my BOV the same as the body color, looks better than the fugly green shit before
