Makes sense.

Ok so a lots happened since my last post I'll give you the short version
I just started school and was using their system to find out how the tsx and accord ecu work. Well I bought a tsx ecu, key, and immobilizer. Engine now runs f&@€ing awesome (and I can use paddle shifter) the accord trans has all the sensors the tsx has (same part #s) the difference in the internals is enough to cause the trans to slip at take off and wot so I'm waiting for a tsx trans to come in (it's cheeper for me to buy the trans than buy a new car) and with school, work full time I'm getting no time for the body so I'm taking it off and wile I was testing different things to get the trans to shift correctly I cracked a piston

The reason for the cracked piston is the tsx has intake vtec like accord but the accord has control over one of the exhaust valves pretty much after 2500 rpm the accord will run with both exhaust valves opening so wile testing the trans at wot the piston cracked. I knew the secondary valve wasn't opening but I planed on fixing it after I fixed the trans. So I think the piston crack due to the excessive pressure in the cylinder all because the restriction of only one exhaust valve. Oh also factor in the over rev at 7400 or 7500rpm
