MOGOTP is cool... so far.
MOGOTP aka Gabriel, Intro

Hello, My name is Gabriel. I am from Pueblo Colorado. Very happy to be here! I have been a member for some months and just getting around to introducing myself.

I have a phantom gray pearl (NH-561P-3) 1992 Accord LX sedan with gray interior (Type B), I can't find any exact specs for the interior but it looks dark gray, on the dash and doors but a lighter gray for the seats and carpet. I thought it was palmy blue but def not.

I bought my CB7 from my mom for $400. It needs work and is a DD/project for me. I just completed a clutch job, which took me 7 months to do, lol. Doing the work on an uneven dirt surface with only jackstands and a 3 ton jack, that I swear weighs 800lbs, sucks! I originally bought an XTR clutch, which didn't work out the first time that I attempted the job, but at least I got a lightened Chromoly flywheel out of it! The trans wouldn't shift into gear while running so I bought an Exedy OEM kit and it works just fine now.

The car is already lowered but on some cheap Ebay coil over sleeves, the blue springs with plastic sleeves (cringe!), they'll work for now. I recently found some Megan coil over sleeves and Megan header at my local pull and pay but didn't have enough cash so I had to leave them.... Oh well, maybe next time. My dad bought the car for my mom and it was already lowered, lol. Awesome, but she couldn't get in and out of it!

My brother (#4 of 5) kinda took over the car and as a result I had to replace the 2 passenger doors, fender, bumper, and lights. I don't think he can see all that well. Oh, found out that the 1991 CB body parts don't fit on a 1992 and the little doors on our cars are surprisingly heavy. She is a car of many colors so I need to get her painted soon!

My immediate plans are to swap my A1 intake for an A6 lower, using a thermal gasket, and use an H23 upper that I will double stack. I'll swap out the cam for an A6, or have it reground, when I do my T-belt sometime very soon. I am still trying to decide on the cam. Of course I will swap the ECU as well.

Tuning, fuel injection, and having more than 1 cam scare me. I once tried to help my brother (#4 of 5) with his timing issue for his '92 Stealth R/T TT but once I saw those 4 cam sprockets I was like, brother you may have to just sell her like she is... It's probably more simple than I am making it out to be, lol. Thank god my Accord only has 1 camshaft, though. My history is with muscle cars and V-8's. My first car was a 1969 Torino GT fastback (the love of my life, I am going to get her back!). I must've torn that car apart 100 different times. I know carburetors and ancient things but I am learning and excited to get into the import scene. I have always liked the 4th gen Accords. There was a white sedan around locally that I remember seeing, when the cars were new, and I thought that it was a good looking car. It had the cool spoiler, with the brake light, tinted windows, and nice rims.

My brother (#2 of 5) swears by Honda and recently just sold his sickly boosted GSR. My 2nd car was his 1983 Accord LX. I didn't take care of it and ran it to the ground, poor Hondy, sorry Hondy.... I have owned a 1999 Cougar with a 3.0l, swapped from a Taurus (Bought it that way), a 1985 E30 325e (I miss that car), and currently driving around a grandma'd out gold 2003 Buick Lesabre, (wife's car and got it at auction for $900), while my CB is waiting for misc. lights and legal (insurance) things to get sorted.

Thanks for having me guys! Thank you for posting such great info and hopefully I can add to the knowledge base someday for I have taken much. First DIY is the Civic light bulb/fog light fix (it's a fix in my book). See ya around!
