We're back, and better than ever!

Hey everyone. Weíre back!

We spent the last few weeks getting our software upgraded from 2005-spec vBulletin to this shiny, new version. For the first time in half your CB7ís life, CB7tuner.com is running up to date forum software! 😃
We sought to keep the same general feel, along with our beloved black and orange color scheme. You may see some things changing here and there as we make some aesthetic tweaks, but all should be running smoothly now.

In addition to looking all fancy, this new version should be extremely mobile friendly. Hopefully that will make it more enjoyable for those of you that do most of their browsing on their phone!

Pandemic and cp[mike] literally busted their asses over the last couple of weeks to make this new software a reality. Without them, this never would have happened.


So, welcome back!
Feel free to ask any questions, give us your observations, and offer suggestions (no promises on implementing anything, but who knows!) There's a post for discussion in the Beginner OT section of the site.
Also, if you experience any weird errors, please let us know ASAP. We tested everything pretty thoroughly, but Iím certain we havenít squashed all the bugs just yet.

-Mike

    Comparison: OEM Rear Sway Bars

    I was just curious and wanted to find out the diameter of our factory Rear sway bar.
    And i also wanted to compare other factory sway bars that fit our cars and see how thick they are.
    Here's what i found...

    1. 90-93 Accord EX/SE
    14mm thickness.
    Very wimpy looking...




    2. 92-94 Acura Vigor LS/GS
    16mm thickness.
    Much more beefier than the factory one.



    3. 91-93 Accord Wagon LX/EX
    14mm thickness.
    The cb9 did NOT get the Vigor rear sway like some people say.




    4. 94-97 Accord EX/Wagon/v6
    15mm thickness.
    1mm thicker than cb7 factory.
    Not worth the upgrade unless it was give to you or aquired really cheap!

        the ex is very weak, but if you are a dx/lx person and dont have it then its better than nothing. i started out with out a rear one then got the ex rear, then got the progress rear.

        a 94-97 accord ex or a the first gen cl is 27mm (front)

          Thats true, if you're car didnt come with one, then having atleast teh cb7 EX one is satisfying.

                    I'm curious about something though.

                    When I had an OEM EX/SE sway bar and I was searching for bushings, they listed two sizes for the bushings.

                      The Vigor is a definitely a noticeable upgrade. I had the EX 14mm previously and that 2mm diff. can be felt in my coupe, esp. when you have coilovers and lowered suspension w/ grippy 17 inch tires/wheels. I can if I wanted to, oversteer around a corner by quickly turning the wheel, and it's controlable suprisingly.

                          vigor on the project car feels like poop.

                          i should upgrade to the progress rear and 27mm oem front.

                            hey Jak,

                            you should make a Sway bar FAQ with all the sway bar info.

                            FYI:

                            Suspension Technique Sway bars:

                            Front: 1 1/16" (27mm)
                            Rear: 13/16" (21mm)

                            DEVOTE
