    Gonna try re-soldering the main relay this weekend. It's taking longer and longer to crank to start.

    I wonder what the turning circle is on it. Edmunds has the turning circle as 36.1 (coupe) and 36.4 (sedan) for the 6GA. It would be interesting to see how much it is shortened by the 4WS system haha.

    It's 31.5 feet for the 4WS Prelude. It has made quite a few sharp turns and U-turns that the Accord could never make. Getting in and out of tight parking spots is way easier in it, too. The back tires will go up over curbs very easily as well, since they can turn, so you can just go up over the curb a bit and then get out if you don't have room to go backwards.

    Haha I didn't even notice the rear wheels until RedRyder mentioned it, such an odd concept to me but it sounds useful

    Just for reference, this is what it looks like when turning the wheel from full lock left to full lock right:

    I cleaned the throttle body a little more today after work. Actually was able to look in there, and it does seem to have some gunk around the edges. When I got the hose back on and started it, he didn't crank very long at all and started up. Same at the gas station, started up quickly.

    I acquired a used EGR valve as well... I will try to clean it, and get that on when I can.
