Whats up guys (and gals) my name is Eric. I just recently bought a 92 ex 5 speed. I live in the Boston,Ma area. Im currently in the process of modding it. I am turboing it and pretty much going to try and stop there. I just finished the USDM Black out housing, Yellow high beam, and Jdm orange side markers. I have everything i need for the turbo kit just waitng for the ECU from MRX. Im going to be running the DSM setup. With a front mount. Here are a few pics..

your bumpers not on right.

and where'd you get those charge pipes?

good luck and dont blow it up.

Looks good, nice shots... and there are clips on the side that hold the parts of your bumper on to the actual fender. But you know that, i mean, you should since your turbo'ing it. You probably just wanted to show us the front bumper on with the intercooler.

Yeah i forgot to mention. I know its not on right. Its not perm on yet. I threw the bumper on just to make sure i cut enough out of the bumper out. When i bought the car one side was off the tracks. Im using the Stock DSM 14b turbo. Im planning on only running 8spi. Just a decent little daily driver. The charge pipes are from a h22 kit my buddy had. The hardest part i see in the charge piping is coming up the drivers side then across but i will def post more pics as progress continues.

Nice turboed CB7 man! What kind of engine are you boosting under there? If it's an F22 let me know. I've always wanted to know what these engines sound like and what gains you get after adding a turbo. Very unique and I like. Keep me posted!

Yeah, i wish someone around here would boost an F22 already so we know what it can do!

Your setup sounds interesting im the only one reppin both an allmotor cb7 and a turbo cb7. MRX is not bad with his ecu's but if you can find osmeone reputable enough you can also do it locally you just need to find a tuner. Thats what im doin and i found one he tunes chrome pro so imma see where he does his thing he mainly deals with rx7's,hondas volkswaggons and all that hes realy reputable and hes only like 10 minutes away.

You should also keep in mind that the intercoolerpiing that sits next to the dsm manifold for the intake side should be wrapped along with the pipe to protect the cool intake air charge from becoming hot. And also dont forget to heatwrap the downpipe aswell . I have to heatwrap mine because of what it did to my oil-line. It actually got the rubber of the returnline so hot that it started to seep throught he teflon bindings but ohwell you live and you learn.

Thanks man. Theres a guy on here r33accord right? His name is Eric and he has a turbo'd CB7? Yes it is a F22. As for fine tuning i was going to a place in NH called WANGS. They are great tuners and ALWAYS have a fast honda up at the track. Thanks for the tips with the heatwrap! :thumbsup:

i know this is the beginner forum and thus im not going to give anyone hell, but take the time to look around guys. there are lots of turbo accords on the site, and just because you cant post in the other parts of the site doesnt mean that you cant look and see some of this stuff. im not trying to be a dick here, honestly, as i actually have been chuckling out loud. regardless, there is a thread somewhere with the most powerful turbo setups on the board, so check it out.
and that r33accord guy, hahaha

yea WANGS is a good place, my friends had his b18 turbo swap tuned there... they did a good job the thing lays down some nasty power.

and they also did his LS swap for him before the b18

Alright, Well i have made a ton of progress and should have the car running within this week. All i have to do it tap in the oil line for the turbo. And tighten up the intercooler piping. MORE PICS COMING THIS WEEK!

hey you are my role model man! thumbs up

im thinking about doing the yellow high beams after i saw yours... Arcadia Greens

Easycustoms
12-18-2006, 07:55 PM
I did the headlights myself. Just styed in one night and banged them out. Hardest part was taping off where you didnt want to be painted black. Other than that i grabbed the krylon Stained glass paint from the local arts and crafts store. I also just ordered a set of YELLOW high beam Bulbs. So that will really add to it. Right now i just have the stock hallogen bulbs...

Once the whole turbo set up is 100% finished. Im gonna finish my fiberglass box i started in the trunk. And work on my own version of the "chargespeed grill". I also started a CO2 cooling system for the intercooler.

Awesome dude...it's always nice to see someone turbo a car that not everyone makes a "kit" for! Anyway-I like the grill with the EX in the middle; never seen that before. Slap on some amber corners or some JDM one-pieces and you got a mean ass face on that 'cord! Get us a sound clip when you get it running!

:bouncy:

Easycustoms

Got the JDM orange corners. Just havent been able to get pics yet. But they reallly look awesome. Its actually alot easier then one would think to turbo our cars. some of your guys should check out the FI section of this forum. I learned everything i know thrugh there. As for ECU and basemaps. PM MRX he has great prices and gets back to you.

Easycustoms

So i found a few pics that i already have of the jdm corners in. More pics should be up tommo.

Find a junked DSM (eclipse, talon, lazer) Grab the mani, turbo, injectors. (if still good) Make your own intercooler pipes or buy a universal kit. Talk to MRX on here for the Basemap and ECU. And just read, Read and Read a lil more in the FI section.

Just gotta hit up the depot tommo and its done. Im trying to figure out a way to keep the bumper lights and have my piping. i was thinking of trimming the back of the light and just fiberglassing it so its skinny the whole way across.

nice set up. something im considering for my F22B DOHC in the future. how is that intercooler holding up with the zip ties lol thats classic. that is a nice boost gauge you got too. what kind is that?

Easycustoms
12-22-2006, 01:47 PM
Thanks guys! I dont think you saw me.. This car isnt on the road yet. Just a driveway queen but should be on the road by the first of the year. :bouncy: Off the top of my ehad i forget the name of the gauges but i have A/F ratio, Oil PSI and the boost you see there. i have a 3 pod gauge holder UNDER my in dash TV. But they are also the type of gauge that are pitch black when off. The Zip ties are extra security. There are 2 L brackets on the backside. Eric, When you coming back to the darkside? LOL hopefully i will get to meet some of you guys in person soon. Like the meet in feb.
