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.

Future Plans:
Too many to list.
Fortune Auto 500 Series Coilovers

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

I wish I was! Instead we are bringing the 2009 Honda Pilot Touring. Just with the baby, the coupe isn't so ideal for long trips. Plus if I find anything large at any of the junkyards I can actually bring it home. I keep telling the GF though that we are going to take a road trip in it somewhere. Just the two of us.

Off topic but..

How did you end up bolting that passenger side airbag? I just picked up an SE dash for my wagon so I'm looking into putting that in come spring time.

Did you have to re-wire the SRS unit as well? Good work with the CL interior carpet as well I wish I had thought of that when I owned my last coupe haha

I just read that the Prelude carpet appparently works in sedans as well.

F22A crankshaft into H22A? Seems like it would give you the best of both worlds as far as torque is concerned.

You have to remember that this isn't exactly a stock H22A1 anymore. It's over bored .75mm, so I can't just go grab some new pistons for it easy. Also it has the type-s pistons in it so the compression is already bumped.

H22A1 Block, H22A Type-S Pistons, F22Ax Crank and Rods


This setup is already getting out of hand with 12.29:1 compression ratio. I only have access to 91 non ethanol gas on a regular basis. I forgot to add the block decking and head milling into Zealworks calc. The actual number would end up being 12.65:1. I feel like with the gas that we have access to on a regular basis that I'm already pushing the line with 11.3:1. At least elevation is knocking it down to 10.6:1 so it's working in my favor. At least until I head to Washington for the Accord/Prelude meet and get much closer to the ocean.

H22A1 Block and Rods, H22A Type-S Pistons, F22Ax Crank


This is just totally unrealistic now. Unless I had access to race gas all the time. Even then the pistons might even be slapping the valves at this point. I forgot to add the decking of the block and milling of the head. With those added into the picture above, I would actually be at 15.27:1.

Unless I can find some regular H22AX pistons that are 87.75mm this is pretty much out as an option. Another thing to consider is I'm probably shaving off around 50-100 lbs in engine alone if I do the swap, so more torque, probably more whp, and less weight, not exactly sure where the downside is..... Except the $$$$.....

I'm thinking of selling the DOHC F22B to help with the funding of the project. I'm not sure though as it's a bit of a unique engine and I could always use the already ported and polished head on the block.

Henry, I actually have fully removed the SRS system from the car other than the passenger air bag in the dashboard. I mean I took the time to fully remove the SRS ecu and all the wiring and sensors associated with it. I'm debating on if I should even currently mount it. It's just been sitting in the dashboard for 2 years. I know it's not the safest, especially if I get in a crash and it ejects and then ignites. I took all of the brackets that I could to bolt it down, but I haven't taken the time to figure out the mounting. My true plan is to get the cover off the air bag and then add something to stiffen it up from sagging and create a cover out of it. Then add something fun or put the fusebox up in that location.

I know that one of the mounting tabs was spot welded to the firewall from the factory so I have to go back and see if I can drill that out and take it along with the other mounting brackets. I thought about ordering the airbag delete tray from passwordjdm but I think the Integra airbag looks to be a little smaller in size.

My plan was to keep everything in intact since Mass does safety inspections and can be pretty strict.

I don't know if the junkyard I frequent and found the dashboard at allows drills. I'm going to have to ask, I've seen guys with electric impacts in the yard before. Otherwise I would have taken that bracket as well. One bonus to living in MT, is in old cars there are no inspections.

i dont know how i never saw this thread before, but damn it man. you've done some badass mods. a lot of which ive been trying to figure out how to do on my coupe. i definitely want to do the cl carpet and seat belts. i also swapped the 4 door se dash in my coupe. i just left the cover only on the passenger side. i found a couple of those dashes at the junkyard a few days ago. im really considering deleting all my factory hvac stuff to make more room for my k swap stuff. i really like the progress you made on your car all this time.
