The final result: cylinders bored 40 over, new pistons, machined crank, new bearings, custom balance shaft delete kit, and a ton of minor peices. Randall also chose to add a firenza lightweight flywheel and exedy stage 1 clutch to the package. It was a much bigger bill than originally anticipated, but well worth the money especially since this car is already sitting on nice coil overs, 17" wheels, has the type R interior and halo projector headlights! He even lucked out with no grinds from the tranny and the AC works. Needless to say, it was a lot of fun to build, but even more fun to drive.
The shaft delete kit that I put together was inspired by 2point2 on hondatech.com. It includes a 40mm freeze plug (front shaft hole in oil pump), (2) 21mm freeze plugs (inside and outside of rear shaft hole), (3) 10mm x 16mm m6 solid dowels, 12mm x 20 mm m6 solid dowel (main cap dowel replacements), short sheet metal screw (for center bearing on rear shaft), and (3) 8mm x 1.25 bolts. I chose to put a screw in the bearing hole rather than drill, tap, set screw from the bottom end partly because I didn't want to do all that way down in a hole, partly to try something nobody else had. It worked either way, but I'm not going to say it was easy.
