My 93 CB7... the beginning!

This is her without any customization.

I've only got two good pix of her. I edited my previous post, now it is a link to a facebook pic of her. Hope it works!

Thank you buzz11! It is a FL car, she was always serviced at a Honda dealership in Orlando... when my wife bought her (in 2005) even the battery was Honda! She is in good condition but, A/C is out of service and the auto tranny is almost gone, it is not slipping but I've only got either 2nd and 4th, or 1st and 3rd, it depends on how she is feeling that day!

Not in FL anymore... I'm in NC now, but still sucks, cause it is super humid in the summer here!

Yes, I am buying an H23A VTEC and an H22 tranny...

Welcome to the arcadia green party.

Make sure to be careful because touch up paint has to be shipped in. lol

I am thinking of either a pearl white paint job or a black matte wrap... what do you think?

Tranny is not bad, your TCU is! Pull it out and open her up, I'll bet you have a few fried electronics on board. If the damage is beyond the two resistors and the electrolytic capacitors, just get a re-manufactured TCU because diagnosing the circuits gets cumbersome fast unless your an electronics technician.

I'm all for stock colors, too bad the green is rare, maybe you have a house of colors that can color match? I am on the hunt for someone to do my Champagne Tan in stock color.

Thank you wildbill83, that's what I thought was the problem, but since I am doing the swap I didn't worry about it to much.

Smart man to cut out the computer, manual transmissions are more reliable and less technical and if you break them it is your fault, not a faulty computer, so a big plus in my book.

Are you going to drill your tranny mount or get a new one welded on? Keep us in the loop on how it goes!

I am a little obscured on the rear mount issue... the engine that I am going to buy have even the rear mount. It is a JDM H22A 92-96. I do have a F22 manual tranny too, and I've got the manual mount for that. I read something about the manual mount being 12-1/4" and the auto one is 13-3/4" What's the deal with that!?

Wild, I've seen way more Arcadia green Accords than any other color. But I think your Champagne tan is one of the most uncommon colors other than red(not burgandy) and black, respertively.
