Thanks guys!! It was totally unexpected. I almost spit out my drink when they
said my name over the speakers.

Grumpys93 yes I understand 100% what you mean..let me just say one thing

I probably won't bring my car to another event again..

as soon as the event was over I got word that other people with CD accords
were talking shit about how they lost to a basic 4 door with Pep Boy wheels lol.

This was the first event in so long that I have brought my car to. & honestly I
don't think I will bring it to Honda Day in the Spring. People are just so weird
about meets/events. I really did not even want to win anything at all. I literally
just pulled up to the event, wiped down my CB, popped the hood, & just ate
food all day lol. Like not even a half hour after the event other people in my
Accord class were saying they got dicked over by the judges..blah blah.

Anyway it was still so much fun to go.

There were only two other CB7s there & they were not really all that at all.

Oh well I just wanted to represent for CB7Tuner.com & I thought you guys
would appreciate a trophy for the whole page not just my car.

Being a member on CB7Tuner is so awesome. I am just glad that this site
is still so active & keeps me motivated!!!

Your issues may be caused by a bad rear subframe.

Congrats on the award! You were the only one there older than 97 weren't ya :P
Yeah I do actually remember reading about jacking up from that point is not
too good & can mess up the alignment.

Lol I need to get a better jack. That is legit the only reason why I had to
jack from that point. I have all the tools I could ever need, just a crappy jack lol.
I am going to buy a new one this weekend.

I actually forgot to post on here but I did get an alignment from my buddy
who works at Honda!

I had an issue about a year & a half ago when I went to Firestone to get
an alignment. The guy said that he could not adjust the toe anymore b/c
the steering rack was not centered. As well as the rear toe bolts were frozen

So about a month ago I climbed underneath & measure how far the steering
was off. It seemed that the rack was a little more favored towards the
passenger side making left hand turns very touchy & right hand turns
needing to turn the wheel a bit more. I measured & corrected the rack.

The rear: so as in my other posts I went under & had to cut out the
rear toe bolts because they were frozen. I also took time to install new
toe arms (rock auto ordered forgot the brand). New toe adjust bolts &
washers from Honda were installed.

Anyway, when I was doing the alignment at Honda on the rear toe, I could
only get the toe degree so far then I had to use the Megan Racing rear adjustable
lower control arms to get the toe into spec. I more so had to adjust the
MR control arm on the rear passenger side, which was the side I had an
issue with in the first place.

I have my sheets from both Firestone (1.5 years ago) & the recent one I did
at Honda. I will upload them.

But, after getting an alignment...WOW I have never felt sooooo comfy
driving winding roads in this car! Having a proper alignment feels so good
because I never have really ripped on the Euro-R because of how bad
the alignment was.


Raf99 I was surprised because one of the CB7s there was a 90/91!
Unfortunately it looks like it was spray painted.

I also have a pretty sweet update that I bought for my CB that I haven't
shown anyone yet!!!



Oh yeah, I was going through a lot of crap with this girl I was dating but,
I got rid of her & the nonsense & found myself a better girl without all
the craziness!!! So I think my head is back on straight & ready to get back
to where I was.

Before from Firestone:




Before taking to Honda I did the String Alignment as best as I could.

After from Honda:

& I also discovered that my front upper driver side control arm ball joint is
pretty bad. So, I think I will just upgrade the set to something nice.

Anyone have a good adjustable upper control arm to recommend?
I know I can search but I was just curious to what you guys have used.

I have a set of SPC Adjustable upper ball joints never used only open. I was going to use them but decided to stick with my ingalls camber kit and buy new upper control arms. PM me if you are interested.

So this weekend I have been having a bit of electrical fun!

I took my CB out yesterday & noticed that my battery light was showing
on the dash..hmm..I usually bring my laptop whenever I take out my car
so when I saw the light I noticed that in SManager it showed the battery
voltage was only at 11.7-11.9. This is still the same battery since I bought
the car.

Saturday night I pulled out the battery & put it on the charger overnight.
Luckily this morning when I looked at the charger it said 100%. Awesome.
Not really, I put the battery back in & start the car...battery light still shows.

After ruling out the battery I thought about the alternator since that was
swapped over from the F22. I took the chance & replaced the alternator.

I put the new alternator in & tightened everything back up. Checked the belt
tension..fire her up & wow it started up so quickly it made me jump lol.

Hooked up the laptop & now I am pulling around 14.3-14.5 volts at idle.

I think that the alternator was messing with my tune as well. I remember
when I would drive, in some RPMs I would notice my wideband start to
dim then it would get brighter again.

She is running great now with the new alternator.

New parts are always great when they arrive!

Got some new Beck/Arnley Front Upper Control Arms.

The driver's side control arm ball joint is just destroyed. I am not sure
what happened. Hopefully my alignment won't be too altered after changing
these arms. I know I could have just installed new ball joints but oh well.

I put the new upper control arms on & they feel great.
My steering feels a lot more solid compared to before.
I no longer have a knocking sound when turning the steering
wheel while sitting stationary.

NH-503P-3 is cool... so far.
How low is the car? You might have to grind the front of those upper control arms to clear.

I have been wanting to get a larger diameter short ram for my setup
since I have been running the 2.5" AEM intake from my F22 on
the Euro-R. I bought one of the cheap short rams from eJay with a
3" diameter. I wonder if the new 3" intake will make an difference compared
to the AEM that was previously on my setup.

I am going to guess that I may have to add a tiny bit more fuel to my
fuel map since there will be more air flow.

This will be a fun little experiment since I have the next few days off.

I also have purchased a new heater valve. I should have taken the time to
replace the OEM valve when I had my F22 out. I have zero heat. I did notice
that when I reinstalled the vavle when doing my swap that the "door" would
not move at all & was stuck.

The new valve I ordered did not come with the lever piece so I guess I have
to swap that part over from the original?

Just installed the new eJay 3" intake. I deff can see/hear/feel the difference!
The H22 definitely revs harder & faster compared to the AEM intake.
I feel like the smaller intake tubing was "choking" the engine. Maybe that
was another reason why my tune has seemed more "rich" on the fuel
map.

I was joking wiith my friend last night saying my H22 has asthma right
now & the bigger intake will be the inhaler haha.

As far as the fuel map, I did have to add about 3% to most of the map.
I could tell as soon as I started the car the she was warming up a little more
lean than usual.

I am typing this on my laptop inside my CB sitting in my driveway lol. I was
just excited to finally have some time off of work & to work on the CB!

Another note, this weekend I went to the junkyard to grab a very small part.
I noticed that one of my injector clips were missing. I am pretty sure I
only had 3 injector clips since I pulled out the old f22.

I pulled all 4 injector clips off an Acura that I found. So I guess these
clips are an OBD1 part? They fit perfect on my injector harness & the
guy at the junkyard was nice enough to let me have them for free!
Gotta appreciate the love whenever people show it!


Oh yeah I bought another Civic again..probably the best deal I have ever
struck for anything i've bought. I'll post it up in the off-topics soon. This Civic
is going to be a flip so I don't really have intentions of keeping it.

*edit: I just saw a beautiful s2000 drive by my house with the plates
"F22C1".. !

Anybody have a tough time with water getting in your tail lights?

Well I sure have..over the past two weeks I have been battling my passenger
outer tail light because water has been getting inside of it.

So I thought that if I put some silicone around the top portion of the light
that the water would not get it. Well, it still got through & since I kept pulling
out the tail light I ended up ripping out one of the studs.

I crossthreaded the nut on the stud & it pulled the stud right out due
to me trying to loosen the nut & not realizing the situation.

I didn't know what I should do about the tail light so my buddy suggested since
my seals for the trunk are bad this might be an on going event until I fix the
seals. I ended up just using a very fine drill bit & making three weep holes
so that if water does get inside, it can just drip out the bottom instead of just
sitting inside the tail light.

Sooooo...in order to fix the stud I had to get a new stud in place of what was there.
I literally tried to gorilla glue the stud back in place but I am not
sure if the glue did not dry all the way but it did not work..even after letting
the glue dry for two days.

I did some research & found out the do not sell the Red/Clears, 50/50 lights
(whatever you want to call them) anymore!!! There are none for the 92-93
CBs anywhere.

I ended up going to Gome Depot & bought some "Hanger Bolts". I have
never heard of these until this week. So one side of the bolt has real rigged
threads like that of a drywall or a wood screw. On the other end is a
machine bolt threading, so I can use a nut to tighten it down.

I used a 1/4" -20 x2". ( had to cut a few MM off of the thick threaded side
so that it would be a little shorter to screw into the plastic hole.)

A friend of mine does auto glass work so he was able to get me some 3090
Locktite & primer from BMW. This is what I used to secure the stud into
the plastic hole.

I tightened two nuts together in order to screw the thread in enough.

The stud has been in place since last night, so I am going to wait until tomo
or maybe Sunday to put it back on my car.

Correct on the 50/50 red/clear for 92-93 coupes. Weird eh. It's like the guy who originally did them only had sedans

I did find a set of ONLY the outer lights that are all clear.

I'll take some pics because they are really nice. The quality is actually a lot
better than the 50/50s. They even came with a really thick gasket. I do not
remember the gasket on the 50/50s being as thick. It's pretty cool because
there is a sticker on both tails that have the year 1998 on them.
