Hey man, look at me rocking out!
It's a bit niche so idk if anybody really gives a shit lmao, but I recently ordered a Honda P28 ECU for my Prelude. This is an upgrade (actually technically a downgrade), but I had to buy it if I wanted to drive the car at all. See, the generation of Prelude I own comes with an immobilizer. This basically means the key has a programmed "signature," and if the ignition switch doesn't see this signature, the starter is disabled by the ECU. So even if one were to try and hotwire the car it would not start (unless they jacked the car and crawled underneath perhaps?) As luck would have it, I lost my key. I had it towed to a dealership to program a new key, which was going to be $180, but apparently these cars shipped with a "red" key, which was used only to program new keys. I bought the car second hand, so that key's in the ether somewhere. Apparently, without the red key, there's NO way to program a key that matches an immobilizer, and it's basically a dud at that point. So, the dealership quoted me $1500 to replace the entire immobilizer system, at which I LAUGHED because that's half the value of the car.

So, what a lot of people have done when they lose their keys is replace the ECU (OBD II) with the previous generation (OBD I), because it runs the same engine but does not have an immobilizer. It just so happens, too, that people also do this because OBD I, despite being older technology, allows for a LOT more tuning flexibility (make the car zoom!) And, the most affordable listing I could find for an American, non-california, manual transmission ECU was also one the seller was programming at request. So I'll now have custom vtec/rev limit, a disabled governor and various disabled sensors that have been causing me problems.

If you have to fix something, you might as well see if you can make it better ;)

EDIT: I hooked it up and the immobilizer still worked somehow? So, I tried a little wiring trick to bypass it. That worked. Fml, I might have not needed that ECU in the first place... Oh well. Zoom!

Maaan. You didn't buy the McSnuggies? They are the new McDonald's briefs you can use. All with Ronald McDonald on the front and everything!

I bought a Monster Rosso. Does that count as a purchase?

The old car died and after two weeks of car hunting bought a 2016 Buick Verano with low miles and a nice warranty. Seems fancy...never had a new-ish car; they have always beem 10 or 20 years old.

The heated seats are nice in the cold...and the dash and dials light up a real pretty blue.

Bought some guitar parts for a personal build and some water-borne poly finish for a guitar neck. Ran out recently on another build, had just enough clear to finish the last coat just as the paint cup went dry. Also ordered some solid color paint from them that's supposed to go on real thin and cover ANYTHING in two coats. They even gave me a cell phone number to call if I had any trouble with the paint. Can't beat that service in my eyes.

For you woodworkers, guitar builders, furniture flippers or furniture painters in general, this stuff is incredible: The Crystalac Store

Non-toxic, quick drying, replaces all those dangerous lacquer or oil-based finishes, will cut and buff like no tomorrow, even by a BIG machine like a Baldor double wheel 12" buffer.

BTW, not a paid endorsement. I was blown away by the quality of the finishes.
