Wierd seeing an empty garage. Car isn't pretty right now, My dash trim panel around the HUD is out, and there'* no a-pillar trim or pod. I may pop them in for a couple days for now.

Need to do some scans this weekend, but I also have a big mess to clean up. I'll drive it to work this morning and see how it does in the cold (38 degrees right now).

Each short trip I take gets better. In fact, after my last post last night, I took it down to grab some dinner, and it had some major BAWLS. Thought it might be the cooldown, but the temp gauge was still at about 185 or so.

Drove pretty well this morning. Put the trim panels back in, so the car is somewhat presentable. Needs a wash and some LG soon though.

Still have some lifter tick, but it'* expected. As she sits in the parky lot here at work, there'* only 24 miles on the new top end. Lifter tick is more pronounced cold, and muted warm. Again, as expected.

Cold start was a breeze this morning. Fired right up. In fact, easier starting than just before she went down for the winter.

I haven't had the scantool on the car yet. There wouldn't be much point to reacting to fuel trims, etc while they're all still getting sorted out. I'll take short trips over the weekend and see how things pan out. Sometime next week I'll take it over to Jerry'* for some more exhaust work. The bung for the wideband O2 and perhaps another little change as well (assuming I find no major issues between now and then, and the budget still supports the idea).

Sunday will be waxing the SSEi, and replacing the airmix actuator in the SLE. Time to step back, relax a little, and get some things cleaned up and organized. The Honda will stay in the stable for now, but probably not for much longer if things continue looking good. I've got three running cars for now. It'* been over 15 years since I've been able to make that claim.

Congrats Bill! Hopefully that lifter will correct itself... And I'm too lazy to review... Did you put the stock lifters back in or are you using replacements?

Please be sure to let us know how those rockers feel compared to stock.(after the computer settles in as does the valvetrain) I am very interested in adding rockers to my l67 later this year along with some other mods.

I won't really be able to give you a good idea of just what the rockers did. Count on about 20hp on a stock L67.

I made far too many changes at the same time to be able to tell what one thing like that did for performance.

Not sure if those will work on 92 heads... I know the 93 has roller rockers and 92 doesn't, but there might be something with the heads themselves thats different too IIRC, like the size of the rocker bolts.
