Sir Paul, ive watch the video over and over again and i can really tell they speak British accent,  they pronounce super as supa,  they talk very much like sir "A"  seriously, no lie.
ok, i will try to record sir alex talking and i will compare it to these two guys.   I think the iranian looking guy is the one who's funding the build and the one actually owns the entire production, he's a very wealthy businessman according to my reasearch, the other guy is just an assistant slash friend slash mechanic.

So the Car Mod guys just released the Episode 2 of their mini Vtec "money Know how" project...i was all ears and eyes when they show the modified Drive shaft.. that's the only thing that hindered me in doing the Vtec, i didn't know how to shorten the shaft to accomodate to the vtec hub, i almost came to a point that i want to just cut it, remove the excess and weld it back together with my 90 amps Harbor freight welder, but i need more researching to do... but this car mod dynamic duo is really amazing!!! i wonder if sir Alex knows them, they talk with british accent too like him. if i force myself to talk with british accent, ahhh people will laugh at me. i'm good with canadian accent.

Some of us consider VTEC engines as God, they worship them,  some purists simply hates them , some people buys them at a high price, some people like jerseymini buys the honda car for $500 , pull the engine out and sell the rest of the car parts for $500,,, well that's wise!!!now he has a matte blue vtec mini that he drives on illegal street racing (accdg to him),,,And someone here  simply claims that he drives his vtec mini to Canada 3K miles one way,, (emphasis on the word "one way")...anywaay,,,but What is a VTEC?? Why are some people so into it... Let's find out.

Wow!! 'm salivating while watching this video   https://youtu.be/NQ8RLM8eWRU   ..
sorry can't keep my valid O's to myself gotta let it out...myob!!

watching this video , i just gosh where are these guys getting their money??  A B16 honda engine, coil over shocks, and a vented and slotted rotor disc brake.... Things i can only dream having.  But anyway, this video perhaps is the first ever most detailed step by step VTEC swap procedure there is,  thanks to MCMod's generosity for imparting their knowledge,I wonder what's steveA and jerseyboy is thinking now...they always say, if you want to know how its done, call me... Well sorry, i'd say, if you really wanna help, just share !
i notice they're having a super big issue on the wrong motor mount, why so big deal??? Can't they weld and fabricate??gosh!

ill continue watching, and will comment as i go along... Again myob pls.

this AAD needle doesn't jive with the 998 cc engine,  too much vibration, i guess it became richer, and my mini vibrates at 45mph. , i think AAC is best for 998., i dunno why people have to change them to so many different numbers AAD, AAB etc etc etc,,, haaaay!!!!
i think, Joe Curto has a lot of explaining to do.

Guys, as you all know, i have been tinkering with motorcycles and scooters since i was 13, and 2 stroke boats, lawnmowers,cars just lately when i came here to the United States, i have fixed so many mechanical issues in my entire life,. ..and To me, 2 of the most "mythical " reasoning one can give someone about his non running car is: 1) Vapor Lock 2) Old gas

Never in my entire fruitful life have i ever encountered a vapor lock, if you analyze it, gas tank only needs like a needle like hole for the gasoline to flow, and would you think a gas tank cover can seal the tank openning that tight????? they don't!!..plus these tank has charcoal canisters to fascilitate breathing, i mean what kind of insect can breed inside a canister tubings and plug it?

number two: about the gas being old,,, i have a boat which has seated for 3 years with a 10 gal old gas, i fired it up and it rans perfect, i consumed (utilize, not eat) the gas and put new gas when it was empty, i am not DUMB to throw the old gas away and get fresh gas, i can still use it, why not., BUT for someone to say that , "hey your car or scooter or boat doesnt run because it has old gas in it." is a pure inexperienced advice., ...

just venting out..., ..i just thought about it this morning.

So i replaced my AAC needle with AAD,  the lower end is awsome i get nice relaxed acceleration but the top end is a bit crap,  past 40 mph engine vibrates a little which means it getting richer.

amazing how a hairlike difference in size of the needle affects the performance of the car. These SU carbs are not simple at all, there a lot to determine for it to run perfect.. Haaaay , i wanna try the Weber decoy.  It's More precise and can hold tune forever once dialed in.   The SU components wears out easily ,  the shaft wears out, the needle wears out, the jet wears out, the spring loose its tension, the oil in the dashpot disappears, the valve stop wears out,,, haaaaay, im not impressed with su carbs. It's not a precision carb.
