I honestly only have one horsepower goal right now and that is anything over 350whp. But I know a couple months down the road that goal will increase as what is occurring with your setup. We are greedy

But today I decided to raise it up and cut up the support bar a little more to see how it would look and if it would clear the bumper. Which I am very pleased to say it did. The intercooler no longer sits lower then the bumper cover. I will now have to cut out some of the bumper cover to accommodate the big collectors on each side and it should slide on perfectly.

Raf, do you have any pictures of where you have to cut up your bumper cover to allow the intercooler piping to fit? I think I may have to follow the foglight outline, but I don't want to cut to much. I think I am going to buy a hacksaw and then use the dremel for more precision.

Anyways, here is the pic of the intercooler raised and sitting behind the Support bar:



I am going to hold off on cutting circles in the front of the intercooler until I can see what my Intake Air Temperatures are. If I need to lower them, then I will do the cool Civic thing and put a couple holes in front of the intercooler.

I also torqued down the crank pulley bolt, installed the alternator, I am almost to a stopping point, except the bumper cover. As everything else that needs to be installed is waiting on the turbo manifold.

So got busy working on the bumper cover yesterday since I had a couple hours before I had to pick my daughter up from daycare.

I started hacking up the black bumper to find out what I wanted and needed to cut to make the front bumper flow.

I first decided to cut the foglight outline out on the driver's side and expose all the piping and on the passenger side, only what was needed to make it clear the intercooler:



Then with the help from Will(Rilas) and Mark(NH503) we came up with this idea:



So cut out what is needed and then instead of a straight vertical line "C" shape it.

I decided we have a winner and starting hacking up the painted front bumper cover. I am about 90% complete, I just have to cut a little bit out the bottom to clear the coupler and it will sit flush. I then have to install the CD5 lip and the bumper will be complete.



I think once the lights, lip, grill, and eyelids are installed, the front end will look even better then what I thought it would.

Raf99 is very helpful Raf99 is very helpful
ya, i had cut my bumper for fog lights originally! Went to the shop with them in and we quickly found out we had to ditch them. I had collected numerous photos of people who made the fogs work with an intercooler but the angle was sharp for the piping or hung too low for my liking. It also meant you had to run a different intercooler piping setup than I had (one that goes a different route than what you and I run).

But I will note this. I'm glad I have large holes there. The amount of times I had to reach in there to fix a clamp, fix some wiring, or adjust something is countless! You may find the same. You'll have one connection point in the corner of the bumper with two clamps in the back where you can't reach with the bumper on. If these clamps come loose or you blow the piping out; if you cannot reach in there you have to take the whole bumper off again to get at it. But I do like your cutouts more than mine!

The other note is that my intercooler is actually attached to the bumper rebar with 3 large bolts. So I undo my piping from the intercooler and then the bumper and intercooler comes off as one. You will do A LOT of this take off and putting back on nonsense. Make sure the setup works in your favor for this too. But looks great! If you are as fussy as I am you'll want everything to be symmetrical.

So for me to remove the bumper, all I have to do is remove the two nuts inside the engine bay, pull the bulbs for the bumper lights, and then undo the bumper quick disconnects and Ill have access to the couplers and intercooler.

I do like things symmetrical and try to get as close as I can. I think I am pretty symmetrical with the front end. The past couple days I have been marking off things on the list of what needs to get done.

I finished routing the ground from the battery negative to the engine, so now I can breathe a little easier. I still need to purchase firewall pass through but this can be done at a later time.

I also finished the front end, minus sanding, painting, and mounting the G-square Eyelids,but here is the finished product:



I then set the TPS as per Cisco's(HondaFan81) so now at fully closed it reads .46 and at WOT 4.65. Mounted the radiator, connected the hoses and filled the system up. I will continue to bleed it once the engine is somewhat running. I have pretty much finished mounting everything inside the engine bay, the only things I have left are: mounting the new manifold once it is complete, mount the wastegate, connect the boost solenoid hoses to the wastegate, finish routing the hot side piping. Once thats all done I'll pour in the conventional oil for warm up, prime the engine, and then attempt first start and check for leaks. I still need to figure out a basemap for start and warm up. I believe Blake will make one for me.

Anyways enough blabbing here is a picture of the engine bay, the anticipation is killing me!

So today I took some time to look around the engine bay for anything that I may have overlooked. I came across a small coolant leak from the Electronic Air Control assembly (forgot its name) on the front of the intake manifold. So I took the one off the h22 and swapped it over. I also found a small pin hole in one of the coolant lines running to it, so I cut the hose and clamped it back into place.

I also decided to finally install the stainless steel brake lines Mark hooked me up with in the front end. Only reason I put this off was didn't want to have to bleed the system, but since I have down time why not.



Not a very exciting picture but you can also see where I routed the alternator wire under the crank pulley. Anyways its progress. I plan to go to the junkyard next week and pick up 2 fender liners, top timing belt cover and any other goodies I can find.

So while waiting for the new manifold to be made, I am tackling small things. Today I went to the junkyard and picked up fender liners, upper timing cover, as well as some random stuff.

Kind of off topic but i'm curious if anyone else picks up some things every time they go. For example every time I go I always come back with lots fuses, a/c knobs, and random bolts.

Anyways today I took the idea from turbo90accord and cut a hole in the timing cover to allow me to see when the cam gear is pointing up, but in the future if I ever get my hands on an adjustable cam gear to make adjustments without removing the cover.



I may go back and get another one and make the hole a little smaller, but for now this will do.

Also installed the fender liners, didn't bother taking a picture as we all know what they look like.

I always come out with every bolt that I have to remove. Unless there is something wrong with a bolt. Otherwise I'm always bringing clips and other things home. I think I have 13 of the Integra trunk lights, with the switch.

Get two more timing covers. Cut a hole large enough to see the marks, then cut the other to overlap the hole and create a cover for the hole.

That is a very exciting picture to me! I love upgrading brakes & suspension.
The braking is probably going to be awesome with those braided lines. Do
you happen to know which brand they are? Goodridge? I really want to
put a set on my CB.

I like how you rerouted the alt line. Makes the engine bay look very nice.

& I am such a fan of how you are still going with the F22.
Good job man.

Thanks! Yes they are goodridge. I’ll report back how they feel once I get the car back on the road. I’ve always love the f series especially how it is underestimated. Still not sure what I want to do with the H22a. Would love to pick up a civic hatch and throw it in there. But one project car is enough.

Front end is pretty much complete, I will eventually put some type of lip on it. I still love the Greddy Gracer Lip, however I am not sure if I have enough meat on the bottom of the bumper to mount the lip.



I painted the G-Square Eyelids and mounted them on the headlights. You may also notice the license plate bumper plug on the driver side. Jimmy (AZaccord) hooked me up on a set of plugs. I will paint them black until I eventually get the car painted.

I can lower the car on its wheels if I wanted to, but its less stress on my back and will make mounting the manifold and turbo easier once I get them if it’s raised a bit of the ground. But I will defintely get that shot for you once the car is on the ground. Passenger or driver side?

Blake, the new manifold looks great! Granted the old one looked a bit cooler, they would both get the job done and then some. Although it sucks you had to learn the hard way with this one.

Manifold is complete and I will be picking it up tomorrow and start the bolting in process. Bought a couple more parts that should be arriving today and tomorrow and hopefully get those installed as well over the weekend. Then the car will be loaded up and send over to 850FAB (Blake) to finish welding up the exhaust and then the party begins.

Hopefully she will be alive and well in the next couple of weeks.

Completed manifold:



This manifold is the one 850FAB will be offering up to fellow f-series. Already on his website, so if you're thinking of going Forced Induction we now have a legit, American made product that is built with beauty and will last!
