I like the close to paint match on the 3point Will. If I didn't have the neuspeed 4point bar I would have went in on this deal. Looking forward to more pics

Thanks apalileo! Although it does help that this isn't my daily driver. I've also put the last year into working on it without hardly driving it at all. I think, since the F22B has gone in, it has traveled less than 10 miles. I do have to start it up often and move it out of the garage. I also start it up once a week and let it run for a little bit, just to keep her fresh.

Thanks Nick! I tried to get something close to matching. I think it would match the Arcadia Green a bit better as the Atlantis Blue Green has a lot more blue in it than green. But still I think it looks better than just black would have. I understand already having a bar and passing this up. I almost did pass it up myself. Due to already having the Ultra Racing bars. But I don't think anything will ever stiffen up the front like this 3 point will. It's going to be so weird going from a car that has the suspension done, to a car that is fully stiffened up with the sway bars/strut bars/tie bars, and the suspension done. I'm sure it won't even feel like driving an Accord anymore. I'm really looking forward to the next few months when I can get this thing out on the road as my daily driver for summer.

So on Thursday night I managed to get the rear lower tie bar installed. It was a quick and easy process, remove 2 bolts, put up bar, reinstall bolts.

ESP Rear Tie Bar 1 (ST Rear Sway Bar as well.)


ESP Rear Tie Bar 2


Hopefully I'll have some more updates on the H22A1 soon. As I'm still setting aside money to actually pay the machine shop, I'm not in a huge rush.

Raf99 is very helpful Raf99 is very helpful
And after reading your post I only now realized that the fenders have water runoff paths. My whole life of owning the car I never realized that is what they were, but makes perfect sense now.

So your the one who got the Jamacian teal 3point ESP front upper bar!!! Nice, quite the choice of color you have there. Can't wait for mine to arrive. Care to share how hard it is to get the part bolted to the firewall in the back?

Thanks Raf! Yea it is an awesome color, I just wish I could convey the true color in the pictures. The back was a bit of a pain. As it's in a box, you have to come up with something short to mark it. Since the engine is in the bay I couldn't lean the drill at the same angle. So my holes didn't quite line up. I had to enlarge them slightly a few times, to get them to line up finally. My holes are roughly 1.25-1.5x the size of the bolts. I used the dremel with a rotozip like bit for steel to enlarge them. So I only took a little bit at a time off the side I needed. I know this isn't ideal, but I really should have removed the plenum from the runners to allow the drill to tilt down more. Your going to run into the same problem, unless you want to remove the entire intake manifold. Then again the Skunk2 might not quite be as tall as the OEM setup. Otherwise the directions sent with the bar make it an easy install.

So I haven't been working on Lola much the last couple of weeks. I've finally started the insulation project on the house. Which already sucks some major ass. Aside from that I've managed to poke at some things here and there for the car.

H22A Intake Manifold (After some TLC and cleaning this is looking much better. Nothing a little elbow grease couldn't take care of.)


H22A Plenum


H22A Runners


H22A Runner 2


So this happened a few weeks ago. This was taken from about 150 feet away in a blizzard across the busiest street in the city. I'm actually surprised that I got a picture with an open gap in the cars.

Short bus all full of FAIL!

Super clean manifold! Sounds like you've got a lot on your hands!

That's an unfortunate accident. Hopefully none of the kids were hurt. Looks minor, but you never know.

Thanks Apalileo! It took probably 2-3 hours with some shop towels, simple green, and a dish brush. Although the end of the runners I used carb cleaner on.

A few projects that are larger than the ones I normally tackle. But I guess I'm just used to being buried in things to do around the house. We moved in almost 2 years ago, and literally had a baby while moving. That made things all the more interesting. So over the last 2 years, I've had to finish the garage (when we moved in, it was totally unfinished, now you can see in the pictures, it is fully finished), redo the entire backyard for the daycare (girlfriend runs out of the lower half of the house, I mean a lot of work, I had to remove about 10" of dirt from about 600 square feet of yard and level it out, to put down heavy plastic and pea gravel), redo part of the side yard, new gutters on the house, and now the insulation. This one really sucks though, I'm having to use the shop vac to remove the 20+ year old blown-in insulation and laying out 27'x15"x9" rolls in place of this. There are some areas of the house that have 0 and I mean 0 insulation on the drywall. This will be a huge step in us saving some money on heating and cooling bills.

I think the bus was empty at that point. It was about 5:30 and I didn't see any kids around or on the bus. So I think everyone was safe. I just happened to open the front door and saw it. So I had to grab a camera and get a picture of it. Not every day you see a short bus in a wreck.

Damn... modding a car and a house! Hats off to you Rilas!

What did you plug the EGR ports with? Looks like brass?

Those are the factory plugs of OBDII manifold I believe. Or at least I've only seen them on OBDII manifolds so far. My F22B DOHC intake manifold has the same plugs.

Yeah, house mods sound like a PITA, but are necessary. Steady progress here. The manifold looks great!

Thanks Sonik! Yes the house mods certainly have been a PITA! But I am closing in on the end of the big ones. Just some smaller stuff around the house is left. Sometimes I don't feel like I'm making any progress. The last 2 weeks I haven't done a whole lot. Look at the car everyday in the garage. Yes I was actually surprised at how much the manifold shined up on the outside. Looks new now.

So today the battle for this has finally ended!!!

F20B/Euro R Crank Pulley 1


F20B/Euro R Crank Pulley 2


I was trying to get this through a seller that another CB7Tuner member found, but that fell through at the end. So after trying to get in touch a few more times and basically wasting time. I ordered this through our favorite engine importer! I ended up paying $40 more for a used one, the one I was trying to buy was supposed to be new for $120 shipped. Oh well, I figure you win some and lose some. I've already won on a few big items for this engine so I don't mind losing on this one.

Tomorrow this is off to the machine shop and they can get the engine balanced. So hopefully in the next month or so I'll have them payed off and the engine at home in the garage ready to be assembled. I could probably have it home a bit sooner but I have a few other things in the works for the car right now. Time will tell what's in store.

Well, there's another item on my wish list! Never knew about this pulley. Makes sense for the PS delete. Looks like that one is in excellent condition. So did the F20B equipped Accords have a manual rack?

I believe these particular models had an electric power steering pump. I'm not 100% sure on that though. So don't take it for fact.

Ah that does make sense. I guess Honda wouldn't be doing manual racks this late in the game. Still, it's good to know there's a single belt crank pulley available without having to go aftermarket. Not to demean any aftermarket suppliers, but there's millions of dollars and hours of R&D that go into OEM Honda parts built with the sole intent of lasting for hundreds of thousands of miles so they are worth it to me.

The S2K also has a single row crank pulley but the off set is slightly different then the H/F series engines. It can be made to work with some effort. But I prefer to get the correct part for the job. Their are some rare cases where this rule is broken. Beyond that it's an ATI or a FluidAmpr crank pulley. I wouldn't even consider buying an after market stock replacement damper.

That plenum looks to be in great condition. What are your plans for it? Sucks you had to pay for the pulley but at least now you have what you need. There's not a huge difference but it is nice to be able to take the pulley off without loosening the motor mount and it makes changing belts so much easier.

Mike for the time being I don't have any real plans for it. For now I'm just going to leave it stock. I think I'll pickup a phenolic iab spacer. I'll keep the iab's as well. I'm just not sure if all of that will fit under the 3 point ESP bar. If the manifold sits the same as the F22B it will fit. But I'm unsure on this currently. I don't really mind the changing belts so much. But yes taking the pulley on and off in the car is so much easier with the single row. I already have one on my F22A4. One reason I got it though is really how much more clearance you gain when removing and installing the engine into the bay. That stupid second row makes it to where the pulley is almost touching the body, or is touching the body upon installation. The biggest reason is my other 2 crank pulleys that I have, the rubber is starting to crack in them. I reasoned I've put enough money into this damn engine that I want the extra insurance of rubber that hasn't started to crack yet, so I can avoid pulley separation.
