Got "potash" to the shop today, decided the weather was good enough, and went down with oil, antifreeze, tires, and baling wire

Bad news I am fearing, 70 mph was indicating 2800rpm which leads me to believe its NOT the HF trans.. growl grumble mutter.

SO gurus: Whats the market like for the proper transmission, OR if anyone has the knowledge, what would be involved in just putting the higher ratio 5th in the current one?

Other than that, shes pretty tight, runs out ok, and is noisy due to the riceboy exhaust

Pics soon!

Trolla does 3600 at 70. I'm not sure why Toyota decided that a economy car needed to be able to climb a 7% grade in top gear, but I still get ok fuel economy, when my transmission develops the 5th gear pop out I plan to try to swap in a taller transmission (I want to get something that has just as low of gearing in first, but top gear to be tall enough that I can't use it on steep hills on the freeway, but I doubt I can get a C160)

The little upshift arrow on the dash seems to work fine, although it seems like the gears come quickly, then upon entering fifth, the little arrow blinks and stutters. Maybe its puzzled about the wrong ratio. I am going to pull numbers off the transmission .. Im 90% sure its wrong .

Pictures of potash! ( the comment about uranium and potash stuck - now to see about the alchemy to get her to uranium level )

Title paperwork done, had to get an officer to chase the VIN and fill out forms, all went swimmingly.

Glass guy coming tomorrow.
Getting fender tomorrow.
Purchasing 99/00 Si seats tomorrow - yea they might be slightly heavier, and will require some bracket fab to fit but my butts gonna be in them 20 hours a week minimum...
Purchasing that set of HX wheels tomorrow. Speaking of which, does anyone know offhand precisely what stampings on the inside I can look for to verify 100% they are the right ones? OR an approximate yet definitive weight wheel and rubber that would confirm?
Going to hang the 2" stainless riceboy exhaust back on for now... A - I dont have the stock exhaust, and B - depending on what ends up going under the hood, maybe it would be useful, like if we build a D12 turbo or whatnot..

Back to work for me!

Why don't you just patch the fender with fiberglass?

Getting some seats with a good balance between weight savings and comfort is really not so easy

Stainless steel? Why not aluminium? Could even make your own fart can with old beer cans

research

Ah snowstorms...

Windshield going in Monday.
Kid with the HX wheels flaked.. go figure.

I pulled numbers off everything today
d15b6 engine 08000004 <== or close, there were a lot of 0's and it was snowing
37820-PM8-A030 ECU

SO given that, it appears, that even though she has a DX trans, the rice brigade did not molest the engine or ecu

Sat unstarted for 2 weeks and fired right up, runs roughly.. Im blaming that on half an exhaust system, and 2.5 yr old stale gas.

Front bumper cover has pockets that look like they could house foglamps but right now are little dead end funnels that go no where.
Whats a good way to cover those flush?
I used to know a friend with plastic welding equipment, maybe that?

More boring updates later!

any updates on your crx hf? I'm curious to see the progress...

What RPM should a correct HF Tranny be turning at 70mph?

Thanks
Dave

My HF is doing right at 1500 rpm @ 65 mph, 70 I would think would bring about 1650 +/-...in regards to shifting uphills, most of the time, I havent had to, long as Im doing 55 or better. Anything lower and I do have have drop back into 4th.

My 02 Infiniti Q45 was down to 1750 at 60 (w/ taller tires and a factory 2.76 rear ratio)

I would have loved another 250 lower!!!!
