Rilas : 1993 Accord SE

Here is my beloved '93 SE Coupe also known as "Lola." I picked up this car as my project car about 9 months ago and it had to sit for about 7 months while I finished the garage. Luckily this car is from New Mexico originally and just last year moved up to Montana. The body is totally rust free with only a few minor dents. Finally after it sitting all winter, waiting just looking at her everyday I finally got to get started. After much debate about how to take care of the tired F22A6 in it, the best route was a JDM low milage engine.



Engine:
JDM F22B ODBII Silvertop
Rebuilt Head
- Mild Port and Polish (Intake and Exhaust)
- 3 Angle Valve Job
- Surfaced "0.005
Mild Wire Tuck

ACT Streetlite Steel Flywheel
Competition Clutch Stage 3 (Rated up to 250 ft/lb of torque.)

Suspension:

Bilstein HD B6 Shocks (94-97 Accord)
Nuespeed Race Springs

Prothane Poly Bushings Rear Kit
HardRace Trailing Arm Bushings

Fortune Auto 500 Series Coilovers - Future

Brakes:
ABS Delete
40/40 Proportioning Valve

Hawk Rear Rotors and Pads

Exterior:
'93 Accord SE Spoiler (New OEM) -Purchased

Interior:
JDM Center Console Armrest Tan w/ Leather
JDM Digital Climate Control
'93 Accord SE Sedan Dashboard
'91 Accord DX Phoenix Red Black Interior (Fully Modified to fit in a SE)
'91 Prelude SI Steering Wheel
'99 CL Charcoal Black Leather Seats Front and Rear
Black Door Handles
Wagon Storage Compartment (In Progress)
SRS Delete (Entire System)

Wheels:
ETwine Platinum 17"x7.5"


Audio/Electronics:
Stock SE Bose System
'01 TL Auto Dimming Rear View Mirror

Future Plans:
Too many to list.

I currently have a 1990 Accord LX Sedan that I am trying to sell due to excessive rust. Before this is sold though I need to return it to stock. This is going to include freshening up the original F22A6 that came out of Lola, to put in the sedan, so I can take the rebuilt F22A4 with many goodies, to put into a future sedan. Also the entire suspension/brakes/interior/transmission/control arms and a few other items I can't remember off the top of my head. All of this is going into Lola eventually. Hopefully by the end of this summer. But life always has suprises!

You should explain to the previous owner that they're supposed to put oil IN the engine instead of on it.

And you picked quite the good looking head to rebuild. What was the reason for that?

Great thread so far. I love this color of SE coupe and the way you're building it is as Honda should have from the factory. Keep us updated with the progress!

Nice work

Lola looks like a pretty girl and she sure seems too have a good heart.

The head was rebuilt due to it being slightly warped after removing it to check the pistons. Also 4 of the exhaust valves had a slight leak to them when vacuum tested. So the rebuild was really for peace of mind.

It's so much effort and I did it all by hand, since I can't roll it out of the garage right now. Totally worth it now that I can work on it without getting filthy!

Thank you for the replies it should help keep me motivated!

The plan is to swap it to a manual later. I need to get my H23 transmission out of my sedan first then it will be moving into this one. The auto in this one is still solid for the time being and it's getting all new AT fluid when it goes back in.

I managed to get a few things done with Lola today.

F22B Installed 1


F22B Installed 2


F22B Installed 3


Slim Puller Fan Installed on Radiator for A/C


I was also working on my egr tuck into the black box. I still need to get a chipped ECU so I can delete it. After I get it finalized I'll post some pictures of it. Other than that I just wrapped up some other small odds and ends.

Got a few more projects done on her in the last few days.

Preparing to tuck EGR Valve


Extended Wires to reach original EGR plug in engine wiring harness


EGR Valve Stuffed into black box in place of map sensor, 2 mounting tabs had to be cut off to make this all fit.


Black box ready to be installed


Black box installed with ODBI to ODBII map sensor jumper harness


EGR wiring to engine harness plug


Radiator set into place


Look at all of that room even with the automatic tranmission

Thanks for the compliment, your coupe is looking great as well. Hopefully I'll have mine on road soon.

Thanks a lot man! It takes a lot of time and effort to figure out a plan and then execute it. Sometimes the smallest seeming project can end up taking a few hours, like to move that stupid EGR valve!

This weekend yielded some more progress. Nothing really picture worthy. Installed a new OEM thermostat, OEM fuel filter, a few custom brackets for the last few electrical connectors. Also wrapped up a bunch of loose ends as well as installed all of the hose clamps that I could. I still need to buy both of the heater core hoses. This will finish the cooling system.

I spent a few hours underneath trying to clean off 22 years worth of oil and dirt. That had almost turned into some sort of grease that was awful to clean the residue off. Took a ton of elbow grease to get it cleaned, but it looks good now. Finished cleaning the bottom of the transmission as well since it was on the ground while I cleaned the rest. Also while underneath I got the flex plate bolted to the torque converter and torqued down. There is more I'm sure but as it's late and it's been a long weekend I think thats enough for tonight.

Got to put in some more work last night. Actually managed to get a few things accomplished.

Rack and Pinion and Front Sway Bar removed (Front ABS sensors as well)


Front Sway Bar Damaged (Noticed this awhile back, but just got to removing this stuff. Have a 99 CL 3.0 solid Front Sway Bar to replace it.)


Bad Tie Rods Drivers Side


Bad Tie Rods Passenger Side


Dirty Center Beam 1


Dirty Center Beam 2


Cleaned Up Center Beam 1


Cleaned Up Center Beam 2


I also spend a good deal of time cleaning the bottom of the rear subframe, where the rack and pinion came out of. It's filthy up in there as well, you can tell from what the rack looked like in the picture above. Now that this rack is out I can finish up converting my other rack and pinion to a manual rack and pinion. I'll post up a few pictures of the process as I noticed there is something missing in the DIY that causes some play in the wheel. I'll get my new tie rods ordered this week and hopefully sometime next week I'll have the steering all put back together. I also finished my ODBII distributor to ODBI wiring harness jumper, but forgot to take a picture of it. I can post this up later.

It's pictures like these that make these types of members' rides threads even better than the cars with thousands of dollars dumped into them.

Thanks Jarrett!

I'm trying to use this MR thread as a record of the work accomplished. I've never taken pictures of my other projects on cars from beginning to finish, and wanted to actually have a visual/written record of how this car has progressed. I always try to get the pictures when I start on the projects but once I'm in the middle of them I usually forget to take pictures.

I'm loving the work you're putting into the bay, beautiful job. Nice choice of engine, too; I'm a fan of a simple, no-nonsense twin cam.

Do you know the thickness (mm) on that CL sway bar? It looks like ST Suspension (27mm) is our only aftermarket option, and I wasn't aware the CL's bolted up.

Thanks for the reply! It's a big time commitment to clean up the bay, especially after so many years of neglect.

This is actually my first twin cam Honda engine. I will get the thickness of the CL bar this weekend. As it's in my other garage 25 miles away. I'll be up there getting some more parts for this Accord.

I managed to get the steering rack more or less disassembled and cleaned up last night. I couldn't get the rod out with the gear on it. Because while I have my snap ring pliers I left the tips in my other garage . This is a rack that I half converted before. I had just taken off the valve body, dropped all the valves out and put it back together and looped the lines. This left me with some play in the steering wheel. Like to drive straight I would have to constantly work the wheel back and forth ever so slightly. Really annoying let me tell you! So this is everything that will be going back into the rack with the exception of 1 valve which again is in my other garage. I'll get some pictures of it once I'm reassembling things. Also I had the black tube off the rack and pinion but I slid it back on, and couldn't get it off again for the life of me. So I just slid it mostly together again for the pictures.

Rack Internals


A few days ago I also finished up the OEM fog light harness and have it installed on the car. I'll post up a picture or two of it as well, in a day or two.
