Re: phi1542's 02 Coupe EX

I remember learning how to drive a manual. Always asking friends to drive their cars, the good ole days.

The day I got my daily S10, I was kind of freaked out by it. Its a 5MT and I had to drive it to work the next day. And I got stuck in traffic on the way home. On big hills. On the highway. Luckily, I knew the concept well enough and made it home without killing it and running into people. Had a few close calls on hills during the first few weeks though.

But you'll love it. My daily gives me the motivation to finish my 6MT swap, so it'll be even better than before.

Master upshifting, then dry downshifting, then rev-matching and so on.

Re: phi1542's 02 Coupe EX

^Definitely some close calls. I didn't have anyone to teach me. My first night driving my sedan I went to hit the brake, but hit the clutch, almost hit a stopped car, then let out the clutch while hitting the gas and wildly dropping to second gear. Kept doing burnouts when parked on an incline and even stalled at stop lights a few times.

It gets better. Eventually you won't even put thought into it...unless you get used to a six speed. Then you have to remind yourself not to drop into Reverse on the highway. lol

That sure escalated quickly! Have fun with the BBK. I can almost guarantee the first time you give the brake pedal a firm press you'll be in for a surprise.

Re: phi1542's 02 Coupe EX

Making some progress. Still need to install the RL BBK. So far the interior is swapped, 5 lug swapped, audio installed, suspension is swapped, and some other stuff probably. Hoping to get the car back this week my friend might be out of town for a week I still need to do the alarm system, repaint the front end + the lip kit, and retrofit the headlights. So more work is need to be done but it's turning out nicely!

You've made more progress in a month than most members on here do in their first two years. lol Those wheels look great on there and work great with the SSM paint.

Yes I don't I'm super impatient and I want everything done asap LOL my priority right now is to get the main stuff on and get it on the road. Paint will have to wait since I spent a lot on parts and labor. Just doing the important stuff first haha

Yeah well only since I had everything from my old Accord! Haha if I didn't have the parts already it would take way longer. I will always remember my black coupe. I learned a lot from getting it to where it was before the accident over the last 3 years. Took a long time to get all the parts I have today haha

I also have this JDM H22A. If I do the swap my car will not pass smog so I will have to do a under the table smog but those are expensive. Is it worth it? Idk... I want the power though lol. Since the engine is in pieces I'm going to get all new parts so it will basically be rebuilt. I'm not doing the swap now but I'm thinking about what I should do.
