    It was nice out, so I decided to clean her up and take her out for a couple days. She's running great. She goes back in storage tomorrow so I thought I'd get a few pics of her.

    I remember following your threads on www.acura-legend.com when I had my 92. Have you dynoed/ran the car yet? Also, what is up with the paint? It looks like there is no clear on it, or it needs to be wetsanded.

    Needs to be wetsanded. I'm planning on repainting next winter.

    My initial Dyno with the 3.5L was 187hp, 218 ft lbs torque at the wheels. I ran so rich over 4000 RPM that you could see the engine misfire. I wanted an initial run, so I can see how much I gain from Headers, Y pipe, chipped ECU, and air/fuel ratio tuning via the AFC.

    um, cowl hood + cold air intake = not functional.

    still ugly though, but just the hood, rest of the car is nice.

    That's somewhat the look I was going after. Figuring the car is a 1991, I miss the style from back then.
