Re: Vss

Tiny pic works for me, and is free at the moment. It was also the recommended pic host of this site, so I use it.

Re: Exhaust system help

Yeah, I didn't want to spend that much either, but it being stainless steel, and having a lifetime warranty are what sold me on it. Living in the salt belt means the exhaust will be around after the...

Re: Push Button ignition

Do you mean adding a 2nd fuel pump fuse in case you blow the first fuel pump fuse? If the pump goes bad, it's kaput, and needs a new pump.

Re: 4AT or 5MT

But it's not something you can swap in a weekend IF you don't know how to work on cars or don't have a tool set. He'll be paying someone to swap it (MT or AT). Sorry, just being honest.

Re: Exhaust system help

Yup, I have one on my 99 with a 4 cylinder. I got it off e-bay for 482 shipped. I also added a Magnaflow cat and a new head pipe while I was in there. I like the sound from it.

Re: sonni_kuba 2001 'Mugen' J32A2/6MT Accord

I helped my son install 1 very similar to the one on the first page. We put it on his 08 Civic Si. His old Si spoiler looked like it would fit on an Accord, so maybe that's what was used. My son's...

Re: New from Newburgh!

Keep in mind that the forums get busy and slow times. It's just the way it is, as some post while at work, while others post from home. Sometimes people have other things going on as well.

Re: Wheel Fitment Thread

You're getting there. Now you need the offset. It'll probably on the backside of the rim, possibly in a spoke section. What you're looking for is something like +38, or +40 for example.

Re: 4AT or 5MT

See, that's the thing, in 10 or 15 years you might be able to afford the Rolls. Also by then the M5 will need a huge infusion of money to fix, while the Acura will be similar to your current Accord...

Yup, rim widths and offsets make a big difference.

But then you have someone like Red Ryder, who was looking for a Cadillac ATS in a certain color combo, with MT and other items on his list. Those cars aren't that common, and he searched for 6 months...

If you have the car you want, then either buy another like it for a project, or buy your dream car and then get a project. Just don't make your project car your every day driver. You gotta have...

Re: New from Newburgh!

Welcome. The pics deal is you have to wait 7 days after you registered.

As for your wheel "gap problem", you might want to look thru the suspension forum, and or ask a question there. Some...

Re: 4AT or 5MT

You probably need to narrow that list down to something you really want. It'll make life a little simpilar when it comes time to find the 1 you want. Be honest with yourself, and get the car you...

Re: 4AT or 5MT

I think it slows them down too. I've got at least 4 projects that I need to work on, and that doesn't include either of the 6th gen Accords.
Sometimes it's more of a case of being in the right time...

Re: Help requested

I was going to say double check the grounds as well. I know the G101 on the intake needs to be attached or the engine won't run.

Re: Help requested

Can you check the CKP sensor, or even the other sensor for spark control (can't remember what it's called)? Are they both in the distributor? Or down on the by the crank? Just asking, as I don't know...

Re: Help requested

I only mentioned the VTEC solenoid because I've heard others have that problem when the valve goes bad, or it gets unplugged.
I think you're on target with the ICM wiring though.

Re: F20b swap! After f23 blew up 😭

Agreed. I think I might have hit the rev limiter once. But then when you have a "high mileage" engine, you want to take care of it. I guess I'm showing my age again. ;) I've had high HP cars in my...

Re: 4AT or 5MT

Honestly, I'd keep the car AT even if the trans does take a crap. It'll be cheaper and easier in the long run to just replace it with another one (a good used JDM AT is about 600 plus shipping)....
