I was also thinking about the tranny after he get's the engine to hold itself together.
I hope you have a Great tuuner, You might want to contact Devin Perice at AEM. I see your in central NJ. There are a lot of great tuners there.
Is the car going on Motec ? May be look up Jeff Evans of Evans tuning, or Felix Media off the Honda forums, like Honda-Tech.com I can't remember whats the name of the shop Felix works at.
What my main point is you need a great tuner.
Here, I did some searching for you.
I know Felix has tuned other cars as well, I know theres a Ford GT40 he has done. At least ask them for help and if they won't touch the car ask them if they know who would.
Mike at AZPinstalls.com may be of some help too.
I'm trying to find a better link to Felix but it's hard here at work...
