Size9zombie is cool... so far.
my CB7 and wifes CD5


had steel wheels on it when i got it. the bottle caps came of the wifes 96 ex.

head gasket blew thanks to a bad radiator cap, so while i had the head off I lapped the valves before reassembly. At this time it had all seals except for the rear main replaced along with oem timing belt, balance shaft belt, water pump, tensioner and idler pulleys

Dunlop Direzza DZ102 205/50/15

Eibach Sportlines vs stock springs. Using KYB G2 struts

seat tracks I welded in.

#7 Billiard ball, drilled and tapped for 10X1.50 installed with jam nut

3rd gear sychro was bad, acquired a H2U5 with around 100,000 miles from Beavers Honda (a Honda salvage yard here in NC) and installed a ACT Streetlite 12.6 lb flywheel with sport pressure plate and street sprung disc and oem throwout bearing, replaced rear main seal. replaced inner and outer tie rods with oem Honda parts. ( I work at an Acura dealer as a master tech so i get oem parts cheap!)


How it looks now, more changes to come!

Thanks! It's not totally done yet, but it's close! Wife's car will not be modified much more than current condition. The F Bomb on the other hand has a LONG way to go.

Yeah, I refuse to pay Photobucket and I have yet to get around to changing the links in my page over to my new image hosting site. Should really get around to that some time soon. Thanks for the reminder.

So...an 09 TSX fell into my lap today, $300 for the whole car. Guess f20 is off the table now and i'll be going k series. It is a totaled car but just because of frame damage, nothing mechanical, i know the car well, i've worked on it since it was brand new. It is just outside of factory warranty and JUST had a rering done under warranty.

Talking

Sonikaccord, easiest way i know of to clean the whole inerior. Takes a while to dry though, carpet took 3 days.

Grumpys93 yea i'm looking forward to having a k swap in it too! I will be building my own harness and anything else I can to save as much money as possible. I want to see just how cheap yet correct with no corners cut I can do this. I will be taking tons of pics!

I finally decided what I'm going to do about the paint on the CB, I'm going back with the factory Rosewood Brown Metallic so it is the same inside and out. Once I get around to it the cage will be painted same color also.

Well, the K24Z3 I was going to use it trash, the tsx was in a bad wreck in the front, cracked the block! So, I'm taking a step back to evaluate which direction I wanna take this car in now. The H has been done to death. Was thinking of a N/A F22a. Hmmm, decisions, decisions. Its my DD, I drive a little over 37 miles 1 way to and from work, all really curvy foothill back roads, so with my mild suspension and weight reduction work it is still super fun.

F's can be fun engines as N/A. If you do go down this road, I would recommend reading jdm92_accorn's MRT. He's built some of the highest hp F series around here. I'm following in his foot steps with an F23A1, I just need more money to finish it up. If the F23A1 head ends up sucking I'm going to slap an F22A head on it instead.

He was the inspiration for thinking about a N/A F. I have had 3 cb7s, 4 cd5s (if you include the 1 I bought for my wife), and a TON of other Hondas and Acuras (Preludes, Civics, etc. The cb is by far my favorite chassis though. I have been lurking here for like 10 years or so. I'm not much of a forum guy, time is a big factor. I will never have a high post count and may disappear for months at a time. This site is so wonderful and full of really great info....even though Photobucket is holding so many photos for ransom. Thank you all.

When I power wash carpet, I clamp it to a piece of 2x2 and elevate that on a stepladder. If you have a nice sunny day stick it out in the yard facing the sun. If not, set it up in the garage and use a box fan or two to increase air flow over it.

You power was the seats as well? I would think these would take forever to dry. Doesn't the foam absorb water?

Yea, I had the carpet hung with clamps off the ground, no fan on it, the seats dried within 2 days, dunno why the carpet took so long. I pressure washed all of it.

What extra modification are you talking about? The A2 and Z3 both bolt up the same, trannys bolt up the same, externally there are no differences.
