I'm setting the budget to around $6-7 which is what my bonus is in the fall so hopefully I can get it swapped in after busy season (tax season) next year.

$6-7 dollars. What are you going to do with all that money son. Must be nice thatís like a few packs of gum to get you ready for the headache of a swap. My first h23 swap gave me cancer. Iím not even sure thereís a medical term for what the f20b swap gave me lol

OP: Dope build you got there! You should also consider a J37 if you can find one Or, do a 6-6 build whenever you are going to do the swap.

Proper med term for the f20 is death

Re: DesiKid's 01 Accord Sedan EX-L

Realized I haven't posted in awhile. Car is sitting lower now and have the new headlights finally installed. Decided to wrap my trunk black to offset all of the green, don't know if I love it yet. Finally got rid of my terrible test pipe and put in a Magnaflow Cat (car sounds so much better now). Also here's a short edit of some rollers a friend of mine did for me.

Re: DesiKid's 01 Accord Sedan EX-L

Also highly recommend Pivot profile LED strips for retrofits. The strips are stupid bright at night and are way more visible at day time than my old ones.

Also would anyone be interested in a write-up for a starlight headliner? Focusing on interior upgrades this winter since I don't feel like working in my cold *** garage lol.

It's a headliner with a bunch of fiber optic strands stuck through it simulating the stars in the sky. It's typically found in high end luxury cars like Rolls Royce. It's time consuming but I have all winter to do it.

Re: DesiKid's 01 Accord Sedan EX-L

Finally did it and pulled the trigger on a Comptech S/C kit. Even comes with the Comptech Icebox as well. Just needs a new belt and a couple of screws.

Too bad it's going straight into my closet lol. I'm gonna slap it on the J30+auto trans once I have a 6 spd in my possession. We'll see exactly how quickly I can blow the stock motor and trans haha.

Anyone know if I can bring a CLS from Canada under the pretense of a parts car? I found 2 of them running for $1500 USD with a rough body. Just don't want to deal with the border red tape.

Pics to come once it gets to my house.

Where did you get the kit from and is there another?

I bought it secondhand from someone on the J Series Engine Nation group on FB. Keep stalking the pages and you might find one.
