Who's who on Hondata

Post by DaX »

Well bring forth the flaming wars, because this is not really an automotive related post.

It's just that I've been on here for about 9 months and I know the names of the regulars on the board, but I know nothing about them. Why not post a little about yourself here [or throw fruit at me for asking such a proposterous thing of you].

My name is Matt Todhunter. I live in Rex, Georgia, in the USA [Rex is in south metro atlanta]. I'm a 22 year old Mechanical Engineering student at the Georgia Institute of Technology. I work for a biomedical company called SaluMedica and we make synthetic cartilage. I'm just the draftsman...I handle most of the 3D modeling and design work for some of the machinery around here.

As you can see in my signature, I drive a 92 Civic VX [white, well mostly] with a B18A1 and a Y1 tranny. I'm currently in the middle of a rebuild of my S1 tranny, and hope to have it in by mid January. I'm a poor college student, so all my money goes to bills, girlfriend, or car [in no particular order]. I don't have forced induction or Hondata yet, but I figure why not learn about it before I get it. I'm on my second Honda...my first was a 92 Civic CX with a DX motor and tranny swap. My first car, which I got when I was 16, was a 73 Porsche 914 that I spent 3 years building from the ground up, so yes, I was destined to be a gear head. My family laughs because my christmas wishlist consists mainly of bearings to complete my transmission rebuild, craftsman tools, and other random un-gift-like objects.

Besides turning wrenches I enjoy spinning records, camping, canoeing, and deer hunting among other things.

You can really boost on either VTEC or Non-VTEC...it's personal preference. There is tons of information on the web...my favorite place is:

http://honda-tech.com/zerosearch

Search before you post though. More than likely the question you have has already been asked and answered.

I had to give up twisting out choons for the love of my Honda. I had to make a decision between being a DJ and tuning my car...I simply don't have enough money for both. I sold all my equipment in January and haven't spun a record since.

My name is sander, and i drive an integra with s200 with everything but boost and g-sensor. Its an ls/vtec, ive had it (motor) for around a year and a half now. and the car for about 3.5 years. I like hondas alot and have been fooling with them for around 4 years now.

Im a mechanic (mostly european and asian cars) in MD at european sports garage. And i go to school for a music degree at umbc. (univ. of md baltimore count.)

By the way DaX, The 914 is one of my personal favorite cars, we have a couple of hardcore 914 guys come through the shop, and there isnt a car out there in the class thats more fun to drive.

EDIT: Hahahaha wow this is an old post.

Hi guys
My name is Sean, I work at Honda R&D, with all of Dougs help and support, I thought it was about time I joined the forum. I am relatively new to hondata, mostly dealt with stand alone systems on the turbo cars (afterhours of course). Just wanted to thank the guys at Hondata for a variety of great products and support.

Name is Eric. Dax, I will forgive you the Georgia Tech thing. I'm a 35 y.o. Clemson Mech Eng grad. Currently still live in Clemson and run a machine shop in Westminster, SC. We do tooling work, machine design and build, electrical panels, cnc & conventional milling, turning, grinding. Also comes in handy for the occasional Honda part. You get the picture. So if you need anyone to build some of that cartilidge making equip for you, give me a shout. What kinda solid modeling do u use. I'm set up with Pro/E.

kp, i feel your pain, everybody around here thinks BMW's are the literally the "ultimate driving machines". To me, i've been to Germany a couple of times and I know they are just german chevys.

Well enuf about work. I run a 94 EG hatch with a B16A2 / Y21LSD tranny, full GSR interior, and all the obligatory bolt-ons. Originally intended the car for road track (Solo I) and autocross, but got distracted drag racing it. Since i had a fuel solenoid fail on me under 100 hp worth of nitrous and melted a piston down, ive decided to ditch the laughing gas and go with an NA build. Currently putting the engine back together with forged pistons, rebalanced crank and rods, total seal rings, new valve job, Competition Cams 57300 cams, springs, & retainers, exedy lightweight flywheel & 3 puck cerametallic clutch, Hondata s300, TWM ITB's, etc. Should be a good road track build. Also getting serious about the suspension work and putting in a race cage.
