this is my daily driver and my project/learning car it ran 215whp 218ftlbs on a dynopack @ 12psi? When i had it tuned he told me it was 218hp @ 9psi so i apologize if for my previous numbers being off, (though my boost gauge has only been showing 9psi)

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

i am pretty much scraping all my plans. I would rather have a family than a nice car and i can't afford both on a mechanics income. I now just want to clean up my 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 th fabric on the doors with the black and blue vynl also.

*ebay injectors, they are not flow matched so tuner had to tune to least flowing injector (meaning all other cylinders richer)
**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.



where did you get that harness wire cover

I made it. The closer you look the worse it looks. I also made the center glove box upholstry and shifter boot.

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

I figured Id post the pictures of what Ive been doing recently. I started out completly redoing the exhaust and using a varex muffler as well as bracing the exhaust to the engine better.





Then while I had the turbo off and had some spare stainless laying around I decided to make up some intercooler piping
Old style

new style

On car



My new wheels

And how car sits (plus a shot of the equipment I get to use. I am very fortunate I know)

The control arms

And the current Alignment (if anyone's interested.)

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

Does anybody want to buy this car? It runs drives has warped turbo manifold needs motor mounts I think and has a bit of rust. No airbags or abs but everything else works. Even If someone wants it I feel bad selling because of what Ive done to it both good and bad.

I like the car it is just too much of a money pit right now I just can't seem to quit modifying.

Or does anyone want trade a rust free 98 auto with 220k for a manual trans 5th 6th or 7th gen.

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

I have a rust free 6th gen with a manual trans but I don't think I would trade it for the same car lol and then to head back to square 1 and do the swap again. Anyways lol I like your ride. Never liked that gold color but it's still really clean . Any plans with the turbo? Ie hp goals?

drop an H in it and enjoy it. reason i left the turbo scene is because its one thing after another and turns into a money pit. hell even grab a f23 and h22 trans. and rock that setup. ditch the turbo stuff, sell it to pay for the swap. aint nothing gonna go wrong with honda OEM swap

I would j-swap long before h-swap but thats me. I certainly made alot of mistakes but other than my iacv and manifold. Every thing is working. But I always want to make it better like once i get the turbo done then ill want coilovers, then body work, then paintjob, then lsd, then internals then full aero then....... I gues my problem is modding is addicting.
