Its all kicking off in here!!

Sometimes a week solid endulging in a build is the best way to make progress. Rain sucks, trust me though its best just to power through. That pop up cover makes it better. I love the mix of new and old Honda parts. I particularly interested in the brakes.

Going to a be a monster Accord!

Wow that's a first I've seen on the TL-S 5 lug parts.

I can't wait to see the finished results Jarrett.

After this I put the new wheels on and dropped it to the ground.

I will get around to addressing the calipers later. Honestly, I was trying to fit a different rear caliper/bracket/rotor combination back here that didn't work. I took some measurements and I'll play more with that later. For now, dirty factory calipers will do. Those pads should be pretty nice, though.

Well, this project has taken a bit of a turn in direction. While all I really intended to do this week was the suspension and the heater core, I had a few other looming issues as well. The rear mount on the crossmember had failed before I purchased the car and it made for annoying shakes off of acceleration. Also, as the first post alludes to, the engine was replaced before I purchased the car. It was replaced with an F22A4 but they retained the F22A6 manifolds. Logic would dictate that if you had the bad engine and the replacement engine sitting side by side, there shouldn't be any instances of missing or misplaced hardware. You have two of everything and a model to show where they go! I'm finding so many things have been put on with RTV as I'm actually getting in here to investigate, as well.

So, I've decided I'm pulling the engine. I have a few engine builds going on right now but nothing is finished. This means I'll have to use the JDM H22A I found in a junkyard a couple of years ago that's been sitting in my garage. I don't want to discuss that too much because that could change by the time the engine is actually ready to go in. Either way, my girlfriend and I prepped the engine for removal today and will pull it tomorrow. While it's out I'll powerwash everything and scrub all the crevices. That will be a good time to put all of the new suspension into place.

This will give me time to run a few new harnesses behind the dash and not rush the heater core. In the meantime I'll drive the CL. I literally haven't sat in that thing in over 6 months. That will be a welcome reunion. It needs a battery, first. Anyway, more senseless picture vomit that you won't benefit from.


Something is missing.




Found most of it!




Preparations have begun!






Regardless of how clean you think your engine bay is, it's not clean until you've lifted the battery tray.




If you have your blower motor out, get into the evaporator housing and get those leaves out!

No good on the engine troubles, good thing you had a spare h22 kicking around though! Man I wish I had a set of those wheels, they've been one of my favorites for a long time!

I looked for these wheels forever. I was searching Craigslist all over the country for them. Then, by chance, they showed up in Austin for $500! That's about 2 hours away from me, so I snatched those up. I was originally planning to put these on my CL, hence the tire size, but I haven't gotten a spare set yet.

But yes, having an engine a few feet away was definitely some of the motivation for going through with it. It was in the plans from the onset anyway, but the issues just sped up the process.

I almost bought a set , but they needed to much work and were redrilled so I passed on them.

Who woulda known that thing was held together with rtv and dreams... Hopefully my accord will be getting an h22 soon as well

I got the engine out of the car last night and on the ground for accessory removal.













Empty and disgustingly dirty.






Next up is the removal of all the ABS hardware, the hard clutch line and damper and then submerging the engine bay in Simple Green.

Yes! I love simple green! Almost everything comes off, except for the darkest black deposits near the AC compressor.

Of the two CBs that I've owned that have had it, both have had bad accumulators. I could fix them, which I find to be a pain, or just delete it. I don't really like early ABS as it is, so I elected to pull it. The extra room in the engine bay is a nice added bonus, but hardly the motivation. Power steering, cruise control and air conditioning are still staying.

Yeah mine doesn't work in my se, when I get around to doing my swap I'll be deleting abs as well. I've had the lines and 40/40 prop valve for a couple years now but just haven't been motivated to do the swap just yet.

Well, I think I've changed my mind about ABS. Given the fact that there's not a proportioning valve that will compensate for the brake upgrades I've done, I would prefer to keep a system in place that will help to adequately distribute line pressure between front and rear. This is going to mean either swapping or rebuilding the current accumulator. Additionally, I threw away all 4 of my wheel sensors. The fronts didn't matter because I need TL sensors anyway, but I could have used the rear ones. Does anyone have them that they would part with?

Saw the goodies you picked up in the pictures of your purchase thread. Definitely tuned in for results on those rack bushings.

I didn't realize how much you had into this car lately. The upgrades look fantastic. I can imagine they will feel awesome when it's back on the road.

That's the thing. I don't have much into this car. Well, at least not physically. All of my stuff used to take up the study of my parent's old home. Now, as no one uses the master bedroom anymore, the bedroom, study, two closets and the garage are full of stuff that needs to go on this car. Granted a lot of things have duplicates and many things need to be sold, but the point is that the car itself is unimpressive.

I did get some bed liner in the wheel wells this morning. That marks the first time I've actually done work on the car since I stopped after my vacation. I changed gears suspension-wise and bought a new set of Koni yellows. Mike unintentionally peer-pressured me into it with his new shiny ones. Once I get Ground Control coilovers and a few new OEM bits I'll sell these Super Streets and finish the suspension install.

I also ordered a set of "B" Type-S pistons for the 95mm H22A I'm building. I still need to order a generic header to get me by until the Vibrant group buy is actually set to go. Then I should be ready to go with this thing.
