pretty nice for a sedan accord.
1 thing about me, or 2 i should say. im not a fan of sedans really, and 2, not a fan of accords either. lol. maybe the newer coupes with the k24 engine though.

so to get my compliment must be good.

there are a couple previous accord owners on this board who may really like your car as well. im sure they will chime in soon.

Thanks for the comment. I got this car for free from my dad bone stock and he bought it back in 96-97 ish and gave it to me in 04. I got the rust removed from both my quarter panels a few years back, and I'll be getting my car painted once I get my bottomend build done.

It's a WS2 muffler. I'm 2.5" from the collector all the way to the muffler. Even my Hi-Flow cat is 2.5" for perfect flow.

Yeah, I wanted a 2.75" piping for my car but I guess its a bit more pricey, so 2.5" will do.

Thanks guys for the comments.

I'll post up some pics when I took the head off for Skunk2 cams & valvetrains asap when I get home from work.

Are those JDM bumpers or did you add those lights? I have seen some JDM preludes with a rear fog light like that, but not on the front.

No, its a Honda OEM bumper. I bought JDM Intersection lights and installed them myself. I bought the EDM Rear Fog from a guy over in UK for $100.00 shipped since he gets them from the junkyard. Helluva deal.

I did back in May of 2009 and did 29 sec on a quarter mile track. Reason is because the egay clutch couldn't let me go into second from first gear, so I had to coast down the line after launching off the line. I have not been to the track since then. I'm planning to go this year after I get my car re-tuned.

Ok, I bought my Skunk2 Pro2 cams for $650.00. Skunk2 Pro Series Valvetrain(Valve Springs, Valve Spring Base Kit, & Retainers) for $550.00 off ebay. I also replaced my valve seals in order to remove my stock valve spring base, H22 Headbolts(OEM), intake cam plug seal, cam seals(Cam Gear side), and stock OEM Honda headgasket, so all of these are new when I rebuild my H22 head.

Here's my engine setup:

Stock Valvetrain(Left) VS Skunk2 Pro series(Right):



Empty head:





H22 base kit installed:



Beware guys that you'll need to remove(it'll get damage) the valve seals to get the stock valve spring base out. It's a PITA to remove them!! Use pliers and wiggle them out.

Also, beware that you'll need to tighten up the adjustable cam gears before you turn over the engine. I didn't do that to the exhaust cam gears and left it at 0 degree while I adjusted the intake cam gear to +4(setting recommended by S2) and the exhaust cam gear degree'd itself clockwise maxed out while I was running the motor and starting it up 2-3 times. I was worried that I'd bent some valves but I guess I was fine. Sounded better after zero'ing the exhaust cam gear back into position.

The motor won't idle; it'll shut off if I let go of the gas pedal. Then my neighbor and I adjusted the butterfly to open up more so more air can enter and after messing around with the TB, we were able to make it idle at 1.1K-1.5k and not shut off. But if I go and start it up, I'll have to give it gas to make it fire up.

On to the pics!

I was over at Full Blown Motorsports getting my car tuned:















Dyno'd Vid, My VTEC engages at 5.5K: YouTube - H22 Dyno Pull 2

I thought I was gonna be near or a little over 200whp, but I guess 187whp will do. My torque is over 150 cause it was at 147wtq when it was 181whp on the dyno.
