blk91coupe : 1991 Accord EX

Here's how my car currently sits. It's no longer my car but at least it's staying in with my family. It's now my dad's car.





Information:

Drivetrain:
Current: JDM H22a from I think a 94 Accord SiR paired with a stock EX transmission.
OBX 92-5 prelude header (had to grind down the crossmember and wrap cylinder #1 tube due to closeness to AC line).
Newer stock replacement exhaust from header back.
NGK plug wires
Excedy pro kit
11.5 pound flywheel (not sure of the brand hopefully it holds up)
H23 prelude power steering pump and bracket for now.


Past: Stock f22a4 replacement with approximately 110,000 miles as of 3/31/15. Body Currently has about 316,000 miles.
Cheapo intake it came with. T2T4 diff went bad and wouldn't hold the passengers side axle in and I never followed through with Steve at hmo to get it fixed...

Exterior:
Blackhoused 92-93 JDM 1 piece headlights
90-91 JDM 1 piece headlights (Sold)
USDM 90-91 foglights
Legend sedan lip
Spyder red and clear rear tail lights

Interior:
Factory leather with Acura CL front seats

Suspension/Wheels:
Tein Basic coilovers
Ingalls front ball joints
Wicked Tuning Rear Camber Arms
Sprint strut bar (past, won't fit with H22a)
91 EX wheels (past)
17" Centerline RPM (past)
CD5 EX wheels current spares
PCW 14" with winter tires
17" BBS RK

Audio/Electronics:
Pioneer Premier deck
Pioneer 6x9 in rear

Future Plans:
H22 swap (accomplished)
Bodywork and paint
Yonaka catback
New Coilovers eventually
New radio (preferably Kenwood)
JDM side markers
Morimoto Mini Projectors

Clean CB man! Looks like you've taken really good care of it, I'm jealous of the non-oxidizing paint haha.

Thanks! I actually cut the 91 accord grill to fit the 90/91 JDM headlights and it still fits witht the 92/93 lights.

Thanks but my clear coat is pretty much gone on the top panels unfortunately and its' got quite a few dents here and there. Maybe I'll fix that stuff eventually. As for now though I just enjoy driving it like it is.

Very clean!

I'd recommend painting the body trim black again, it'll look great!

Thanks, if or when I paint the car I want to replace all the trim but I think I'll take your advice and paint it for now.

Thanks, I'm pretty excited to have found them. All I know is they are 17x7 and the offset is 42. I think they may have been made in 07.

Well about a week and a half ago I broke down going over on of the I-90 bridges near Seattle. Needless to say that was an interesting place to breakdown.



The engine is shot so today I ordered an H22 and the tune up and replacement parts needed to put the motor in my car. I am super excited!

Sweet it always sucks to blow a motor but it's great motivation to go bigger and better! Good luck with the swap!

Thanks, yeah it is pretty good motivation. Lol. I've been thinking about doing this swap for years and I finally have the means.

Sure thing! I'm hoping it goes fairly fast and smooth. I live across the state from where my car is and only get every other weekend off.

Well, here's a quick update. After the shipping company lost my engine and found it I finally picked it up yesterday. It's really happening. Unfortunately the car is on the opposite side of the state from me so it may take some time to finish it up. Luckily my dad is going to work on it this week. I'm really hoping to have it in this weekend but we'll see.

This is an I miss my car post.



I ended up having to return that motor. A big POS that the guy kept trying to get me to use it anyways. The clutch was super warn and there was a massive amount of corrosion in the coolant passages. The motor had really been abused. Word to the wise be weary of eBay sellers. I ordered a motor and trans from hmotors about 2 weeks ago and it should be here in a couple weeks. I'm very much looking forward to it's arrival.

I'm getting close and excited again. Hoping to have it running tomorrow but that's probably wishful thinking.

So we didn't get as much done as I would have liked. We got the motor in at least. As we were finishing up I re-noticed that there are 2 spots on the throttlebody for cables and mentioned it to my dad. He then said that it was for an automatic transmission. Is this true? Here's a couple pictures.





Also this made me look more into the engine code wondering if this was an automatic engine. In my research I think I found that this engine is from a 94-97 accord SiR which only had around 188 hp. I bought this under the impression it was the 200 hp prelude motor. Here is a picture of the block serial code. Does anyone know how to decipher these? Multiple sources say it's an Accord SiR motor.



Last but not least an engine bay shot.



Thanks for the help guys!

Your dad is correct. The front part of the throttle rotor is for the kickdown cable for an automatic transmission. Route the throttle cable around the back part of the rotor, leave the front groove empty and you're done.

The serial number would denote that it is from an Accord SiR, which uses the same camshafts as the USDM H22A1 and many European H22A applications. It still has 10.6:1 compression ratio, so a simple camshaft swap later will give you a decent bump.

The SiR H22A from HMO that I have came with the P0F ECU, too. Is that what yours came with, or did Steve give you a P13? If he gave you a P13, you're good to with adding the necessary wires to the engine harness and pluggin in the ECU. If you have the P0F ECU, then you'll have to swap pins A6 and A11 on the ECU connector.

Thanks, djcaz_aom!

Thanks, Jarrett!

So is the camshaft difference causing the lower hp in these engines? I read something about the throttlebody being different? Also, did this engine cost you less since it's rated at less hp than they advertise for their h22's?

I'm pretty sure I got the P13. I'll look next time I'm at my parents.
