So it begins.

picked up the Z from henry's yesterday.

threw on some wack ass mesh i had lying around and fucked with the idle a bit, definitely needs some work to be running reliably, idle fluctuates terribly depending on temperature of the engine and it runs super rich. i suppose a carb rebuild or a new carb setup is necessary. anyhow, updates on this car should be pretty frequent, especially when i sell the civic.

life decisions.

L28 with triple mikunis :
has 60,000 miles on it.
cheapest option.
sounds relatively cool.
its the original engine for the car.

slowest option.
not the coolest sounding.
least potential to make power.

RB20DET (TDo4, front mount, injectors):
most powerful option.
relative ease of swap.
can sell L24 to recuperate some funds.
ease of upgrade.
reliability of fuel injection.
gas mileage.
doesn't sounds as cool as other options.
cost is significantly more than L24.
downtime (will need daily driver)

Small Block Chevy:
sounds cool as fuck.
sounds cool as fuck.
cheap parts.
kit available for convenient swap.
will make decent power.
potential to make more power easily.

i know the least about this option so a bunch of research is required.
gas consumption.
still don't feel right.
will be almost as expensive as RB20 swap.
