Worked a bit on the shifter. Drilled out the rod-ends, fabricated threaded press-in plugs to reduce the rod-ends down to match the push-pull cables, pressed them in, and was able to at least test one axis of the shifter. Works great, though it showed the transmission-end mount for one push-pull cable sheath needs “adjustment.” Oh well.
Received a remote oil filter adaptor, ordered a remote dual oil filter mount, two 1.5″ stainless flex lines for the wastegates, and an ODB-II connector. The connector is because the engine will no doubt have its share of error codes while getting it running. Even though the Hondata KPro can clear the codes, it’s nice to be able to read them without needing a laptop.
