StomoHonda is an unknown quantity at this point
Used 02 couoe F23a4

Just bought 02 coupe with the F23a1. It has 160,000 miles.
Im making a list of which parts to check and replace.
Includes parts for but not only,
Engine, suspension, etc.
Anyone with some advice would be appreciated. I dnot Know if it has LSD on it but what ever it is i want to replace, and sooner or later swap out the engine, but for now I want it to start feeling new again, since I plan on keeping it and fixing it up very nicely.

Key parts to check.

Engine
-spark plugs
-plug wires
-map sensor
-air filter
-valve lash
-timing belt
-accessory belts
-engine mounts
-throttle cable tension
-upper and lower radiator hoses and thermostats

Suspension
-ball joints
-tie rods and ends
-end links
-worn out bushings.

So far on mine I have done a lot of replacing parts and tuning up.
-new radiator, upper and lower hoses, thermostat
-new gates timing belt kit
-plugs, wires, cap and rotor
-cleaned map sensor
-new from and left and right engine mounts
-valve lash adjustment
-new valve cover gasket and grommets

-cat delete
-air intake box mod
-cat delete with "custom ported muffler" lols
-front pass wheel bearing
-new front lower ball joints, upper control arms, tie rod ends, and end links
-new Napa gold starter
-push button start.


My car has 230k miles and drives like a 3300lb rabid dog in crack that is slow. But it pulls hard for what it is lol.
