bseballkid1990 : 1992 Accord EX

I picked her up almost a little over a year ago. I picked it up for around $400 and all it needed was a fuel pump.. which came with the car lol.

I can't find the pics when I first picked it up but here it is in the back of my old work halfway through replacing the fuel pump.





After I got it running I started working on the 5 lug swap. here it is halfway through. lol



and once I finished the 5 lug swap I got it some new shoes.



I took out the old F22 which had a bent valve for a H23 and here it is at the track.




I'm missing more picture but I'll update those in a bit.

Looks like it's in pretty good condition, especially for $400. Did you manage to get some decent runs in at the track with the new engine?

I did but the stock clutch was slipping and since then I've installed a stage 3 clutch and lightweight flywheel. trying to get it prepared for the track in the spring. I've got to put in the half radiator, delete A/C, install the drag headers/exhaust, and finally get it tuned!

This was a few weeks back when we got our yearly little bit of snow.

Finally took out the old leaky radiator, ac condenser, and busted fans. Installed a new skunk2 alpha radiator, fan, and new upper hose. I had to get a hose at autozone and cut it in order to fit. Does anyone know if there is a direct fit hose for the single sided radiators?







Next will be to install the drag headers and exhaust after I get the new Aem fuel rail, injectors, FPR, and AEM Air Fuel ratio gauge.

I found out the hard way too that there is no direct hose to fit the upper if you go with a skunk2/mishimoto half rad. I had to get a custom one too.

Looks great man!!

Nah, it kinked too bad and didn't sit right.

Yeah, I went to vatozone and tried to get one with a similar bend but even that isn't working so great. but at least I could get it running and the coolant bled. this fan MOVES so much more air than the OEM lol

If you ever experience any overheating issues or rad fan on all the time etc. it's because you now have a huge open space next to the rad. Air will take the path of least resistance and will most likely bypass your whole rad. It may be enough of an issue that you'll have to block it off. But you may be ok.

That's a good point. I haven't had any issues so far but it hasn't been above freezing here in Georgia the past couple weeks so maybe that's why. I'll definitely keep an eye on it. But in other applications I haven't seen a block off to funnel air through the radiator.

Ive had a half rad for a while now, never had issues even in the past summers. Temp gauge sits where it normally does. the only difference is i have a fan shroud... room for ram air ducting..coming soon.
