Nice engine swap. I'm thinking about getting a V6 or maybe even a V8 like the guy From Canada. Just *****ing around. Nice car though

I have done a lot since the last update guys, the wheels are on, I got my hands on a mint ex-r lip, redone the ecu with hondata and had my cam gears installed and with the dyno tunning it was worth it. I ran a 14.4 in the quarter mile which is pretty quick for a 4 dr. I surprised a few civics and made a few bucks! haha

on average, how much would a h22 engine swap cost?

Great swap. All go all show is good. What does the track tell you? I have an itch for turbo. The accord was ment to have the H22 in it. There is so much space in the engine bay for mods. Keep up the work and good luck. JP

Well, as far as the h22 goes i didnt think it was going to be a huge difference, but the first time i took it out i was amazed. It is soooo much faster, well worth it. The parts are easy to find, the wreckers in town had all the parts i needed for the conversion, you should have no trouble at all finding what you need! And i have been looking into a lip, not sure yet which one, but i have seen what your talking about, they look pretty clean.

Hey man, thanks for the comments, i never thought about looking at bronze...but I do think I'm gonna try to keep it as long as the back quarter work doesn't get too expensive, I've already got a few more ideas in my head for parts I want, once i hit co op at school...I'm drooling over the H22 swap...how much quicker does it actually make the car feelings wise?, and is it a lot of effort in getting the parts for the conversion?...oh, and one more think on your car...I've been looking into front lips for our gen accords...it appears that a 94-95 accord stock lip or even mugen/spoon copies will fit with a little work, I think it would look awesome on your car and even better than the stock ex lip they made because even the stock lip is thicker than the ex for our gen...just something to think about...

I totally agree with you, that's why i have a lot of respect for your ride. I haven't done that much to my car, but everything i have done like the system and stuff was in my driveway and it truly does make a difference...anyone can buy a nice car...but it takes a certain type of person to build a nice car...and this car is evidence of it

I think the car means a lot more to people when the work is done yourself, dont get me wrong, i had a lot of people help me, but i was there every step of the way! Thanks a lot guys

That's awesome on the interior man...it sounds really nice, you gotta put a pic up of that...and I agree on the speakers...i have a set of references in the back in my car, and i know the kappas sound even better than that...

The kappa's sounds amazing! great sound quality. And as far as the interior goes there is no maroon left. They door panels were professionally done black and silver, and the seats were replaced with black racing seats. The dash was also done black, the only thing left is the carpet and im working on it! Thanx guys

Very clean...that's definitely the motor choice I want to do if i ever build mine up...i like the stance a lot...as far as what i'd suggest, pretty much the standard things I like in this gen accord...the red/clear tails, sidemarkers, stuff like that...the only thing i might change, and this is strictly a matter of opinion is the interior, i like the paint work, but i was never a fan of the maroon interiors in this gen car...I'm not knocking it, i'm just saying if you could get your hands on like a grey interior it might look even better...but awesome work overall...and good luck on the tuning work...
