This is my daily driver and my project/learning car it ran 215whp 218ftlbs on a dynopack @ 12psi with log style manifold dsm injectors and with 2.5" cat

http://www.evans-tuning.com/dynos/20...ta-s300-tuning



Long term:
-general body work(modify bumpers, side skirts and hood) Im trying some custom fiberglass/carbon fiber fabrication stuff soon.
-royal blue paint job

my goal was a build enough that it is reliable and able to be quiet.



It is raised a little on lift



Yes I have a hole cut in my bumper





Had some fun with the interior not perfect but I like it. I'm thinking i should replace the fabric on the doors with the black and blue vynl also.


**original color is tan and I hate tan. new interior is dark lapis.
***I got a little nervous cause my coolant temps would spike to 212 at WOT. i would recommend to anyone with a turboed f23a4 (f23a4 thrmosat opens between 180-190 F f23a1 is between 170-180 F)
****glowshift gaugepod didnt quite fit right. it causes a mild squeak/rattle. I would advise you to try oritz custom pods if you can afford it.

Re: Gradfien's 99 accord sedan EX (56k)

Looks like my first Accord. I'm already a fan. Wish I would've started with engine mods. I'll be keeping my eye on this project.

Nothing wrong with slow progress. Goals are set to motivate yourself. They help you get through the mundane and busy chaos. Even if it's just two weekends a year that you get to throw a wrench at it, makes it all the sweeter.

I havent ran a1/4 and probably won't

My tuner is taking his time getting back with me. If i remember corectly it had about 205 lb ft by 3000 rpm and rose slowly to about 220 lb ft @ 5600rpm then started to drop away fairly quick. He said he did a run up to 7000 rpm but it didn't make much power past 6000.

Im not sure if its my setup or the cams that are limiting it though.

Nice progress with the performance end of things, great car to learn on. An engine bay cleaning would do wonders.

Thanks, I know its dirty but it works.

It is a great car to learn on especially because it was a "mechanics special" when i bought it.

for those who don't know about cars and want to turbo, you'll learn alot but it will probably cost you finacially, if nothing else. 3 1/2 years ago i barely knew what a turbo was.

My tuner posted my dyno sheet now, but some of the details are different than I remember I thought he said it was 218whp @ 9psi but he has it posted as 215whp @ 12psi. Ive never seen my boost gauge go over 10 psi. I guess my boost gauge might not be that acurate.

Re: Gradfien's 99 accord turbo sedan EX (56k)

That's an awesome sleeper, much love for that car! Nice work. I love the bumper cut-out, too.

If it were me, I'd leave the body stock. Sleepers for the win!

Do the prelude/5th gen accord mishimoto rad swap and fans, you just gotta fab up top brackets or cut and extend your oem ones
