Defi Link unit along with oil pressure and temp gauges are all wired in and worked great on the track. 
They have been working since the last track day.

Some pics of new stuff to keep cool at the track.
Replaced this old thing.  1in 1 core stock Civic unit.


In goes the new Mishimoto.  2 1/4in 3 core.  I had to cut off the stock tabs and make completely new mounts, spacing the radiator further back since its so thick.


Oil cooler with brackets and fittings welded on by Future Fab.


Mocked everything up.  Painted the brackets off the car.  Just need to do some final cleanup touches.

Thank you very much.  I just try and have fun while building the car.  99% of the parts on the car are used, discounted, or built in the garage.
UPDATE: 
Buddy Club seat arrived a few days ago
Buddy Club rails are on their way
Autometer water temp gauge installed
SARD FPR picked up from Efrain including adapter plate for the fuel rail. 

If I can budget correctly I will be ordering Defi fuel pressure and water temp gauges next week.

I went with the black/grey one.  Knowing my luck I would get a giant grease spot on the red one in a week.

Carbon sunroof panel is in.  I said "fuck it" and just removed the whole assembly and used the panel as a delete to fill the void.  30 less pounds on the top of the car now.
Some old pics that Lark uploaded the other day:
Greddy oil cooler sandwich plate:
Fuel pressure regulator mounting plate.  Idea stolen from Dan :)

Whats with you guys and getting rid of your wipers? I know it's phoenix but you couldn't pay me not to have wipers. Even if you only need them 2-3 times a year. Even race cars have wipers. I found my second wiper arm and got a blade. So stoked on having both. "I CAN SEE OUT BOTH SIDES OF THE WINDSHIELD!"

My windshield wipers have not worked since I got rid of the car.  I tried tracking down the wiring multiple times but lord only knows what Pong did when wiring this thing up.  After a while I just got sick of looking at non-functional parts and took them off.
