Thank you for the ring video, I have been waiting for your return to the ring.

No way! Looks like we just missed each other! First evening of ring laps was 13th. Then i was there til 16th. Yeah at 5.15pm the surrounding area and the carparks either side of the barriers gets pretty busy! I wait 15mins for the first batch to process though then its not too bad traffic wise.

This is golden Marcus, we don't see too much material like this for the CB Accord these days! Thumbs up on the driving, good combo of pushing it and responsable driving. That engine and gearbox combo seems really healthy and agile, gotta love the U2Q7 transmission along the H22

Very awesome! Didn't think I would get to see a Cb7 out lapping the one of the most famous tracks in the world. The car looked very composed around the ring, any brake fade issues? I know you said you weren't hitting it too hard since you don't know the track too well.

Thanks Robert! I really wish more cbs would hit the track. People think they are too heavy etc. Not really most german metal isnt under 1400kg. So actually its quite light.

I had brake fade last time here. Good pads, fluid and cooling ducts are enough to keep that at bay. I wasnt hammering it brake wise as i needed to drive the car back to the UK with the same brakes.

My car isnt that modified, and i can use it reasonable well on track. I hope that inspires people on here that actually you dont need to blow lots of money to enjoy using a cb on track. Just a well maintained car with a few key upgrades.

Well, not updated much for a long while, main reason is that my quick system for wacking photos up on forums got changed and so I didnt bother. Now I have sorted a quick system out again, I can keep this updated again.

So let start with whats happened to the car mod wise since.

Some poly bushes.

Dont ask why 1 lot are red and the other black looong story!


My polly filled front mount called it a day after the road trip to the Ring in September, so I bought this one off Lindiz.


Hardrace rear lower and toe arms.


Then this odd thing happened about 2 months ago?!






That is the out ring of the crank pulley parting ways with the inner ring. I heard this noise, it was eating away at my timing cover, about to spit off the alternator belt, so I shut down the engine, which luckily I was in my drive. Anyway a new H22A7 Honda pulley has replaced it, along with a new woodruff key so hopefully it wont happen again.

And finally, since it was Winter I thought it would be best to do a full OEM leather install Just some teaser pics for now, but 90% complete, front and rear seats and 4 doorcards. Feels much better inside now. Only negative is the full electric drivers seat at full low, sits slightly higher than my old seat but its no big deal.



So the exhaust started to drone quite a bit after a while, 120hz the main offender. between 2500-4100, with the worst 3300rpm. So without making it quieter across all RPMs I needed a rpm specific reduction in resonance. welding this J pipe on has done just that. Some medium maths allows you to get the right length to cancel out the 120hz at 3300rpm. It hasnt competely got rid of the full range, in that 2500 and 4000 still drone. but all of the 3000 range is noticabley quieter which for me with the U2Q7 is 60-70mph, cruising speeds..


Playing about with headlight polarised film on my bumper lights. My bumper lights are not indicators, I have wired them up as seperate white LED lights. Rolling like this for now, see if I like it. Still in 2 minds.


Finally, I will leave you with, spot the CB. Parked up with the big boys last weekend at the Silverstone 24hr race.

2 updates,

1st is the wagon rear boot floor mod. Wasnt planned this, but I had a load of wagon parts laying around and i thought this would be worth installing. Makes the rear boot slightly shallower but much more secure, so no rattles or bowing thin wood.





2nd is the exhaust system again. I got a Xforce Varex remote controlled active exhaust rear silencer. Great piece of kit. If you are unaware of it, it is has a valve in it which blockes the flow, and diverts it through a more silenced route. This valve is controlled by a remote control in the car. This means you can have it loud when you want and quiet when you want. Which is mega!

Trouble is my power flow resonator struggled which the varex rear box, and it was too loud and slightly raspy in open mode, and buzzed in closed mode. This was annoying since the Varex is a quality piece of kit. So the solution was to install another resonator. I grabbed a 16" Simons Slim resonator 2.5", which features a straight though offset perf tub section, and has a mini section at the end acting like a chamber. This sorted all issues out, no rasp at all, or buzzes!







Will get some video clips up soon.

I'd love to see and hear how that remote control exhaust silencer works! I'd love to do that to my car.

Jdm92_accord has sound clips of his Varex electronic baffled muffler. Somewhere in that 83 pages you need to read still.

Excellent execution on the exhaust resonator. Is it only attached at the pipe or is there another connection somewhere near the muffler?

Both resonators are just clamp on fit with exhuast clamps. With the inside piping of the resonator smeared with high temp silcone sealant. No leaks. There is just the normal stock location hangers that holds it up.

Been a while! The CB is still going strong. Still in use as a weekend car and occasional commute. Nothing massive has happened with it mod wise for a while. Only addition is an extra large Simons resonator, which took some creative fitting as it was quite a squeeze!
