thepowderblue : 1993 Accord SE

So I just wanted to make a members ride thread of my new SE





I would show off my leather but these seat covers are to hard to get off











I dont think anything has chaged science it rolled off the showroom floor, the alternator was even replaced with an oem one




I ended up blowing the motor in my 2000 Civic EX so I bought this, I still have a cb7 with my H22 but I have not got it running yet it still has that knock so I have not driven it in a long time. Getting behind the wheel of this SE made me so happy. I couldn't quit smiling everytime I found another SE option. Plus all of the low end torque that my Civic had none of is really nice

I like driving the cb7 alot more then the civic. The civic has no clue what torque is so I am either being passed by everyone off of stoplights or I am hotrodding it threw traffic just trying not to be passed. If I barely toutch the gas on the cb7 I pull past everyone.
It makes me want to swap a F series into my civic' and my civic has a d16y8 the the y8 is supposed to be one of the highest horsepower D series
Now I remember why I have all ways been an accord guy even if we are the black sheep of the honda community, I have had my Civic for not even 3 weeks and I have already managed to blow it up, I could never do that to an accord. The Civic is so gutless down low it makes me want to beat on it just to get it up in the VTEC so it'll actually put some power down

Nice purchase! When I was doing maintenance on my sisters civic which had the same motor. I was not impressed at all with the motor. But looking forward to the pics of the SE.

Does anybody remember those fiberglass replica flush mount spoilers that we're on here and we're being sold on eBay and number of years ago? I'm having a hard time finding them. Does anybody know if whoever makes them is still making them and if they are inexpensive? I remember them being like 60 bucks versus 200 for an oem

Wow looks like it’s in great condition.

I recently moved to Phoenix so we’re close. Well I’m in Ahwatukee so I’m really close.

I ordered lowering springs and window visors so they will be on soon and I just had to put 2 New tires on today.We just took it on a trip up threw sedona,to Jerome and back threw flagstaff. Here are some pictures from it

What’s that white stuff on the ground? Car is looking great man. Did you get any struts to go along with the springs?

Me and the girlfriend took a trip around the state, we wanted to see some snow. We put over 400 miles on that day.Thanks man. I put some visors on and have the springs but I went cheap because the shocks are good I'm keeping them stock.
I have been putting my money onto my civic . I just got it running boosted and it's sooo freaking fast. I still need to get a downpipe on and take it to my tuner but this is why I'm putting the cb7 on the back burner, but I'm still making sure to give it love
This is a video I made on a test drive around the block to make sure the turbo worked
