Re: Gabcauseican 1998 Accord Sedan EX 5 Speed

When I make the harnesses I usually cover my desk at work with wires and do all the pinning and wiring throughout the day. My harnesses look like garbage (opinion) but do they need to look fancy? You're never going to see it anyway once the car is rolling lol. Im assuming you just want this to be a go fast because youre going to need some serious internal reinforcing to get that F20b to last lol. Im keeping mine NA for now. I just need to figure out why its not starting now and the ECT issue. I have a 99 and this motor has the ect and sending unit setup so that should be easy.

I stay away from drinking and working on my ride, bad things happen lol. Sounds like cash isnt an issue for you. I feel it in my soul when something goes wrong. I had to sell a bunch of stuff to get the F20b. Now I just need to get my last few bugs worked out so I can get the car back on the road. Maybe i'll bring it through NY before I go back to florida lol. Im in PA right now.

Re: Gabcauseican 1998 Accord Sedan EX 5 Speed

That was hella fast lol. It took me about like 3 days to put mine in. I mean I work during the week so I can inly work on ym car during the weekend but still. I had to yank my trans out like 3 times for the rear main but I finally got that fixed right so now its just a matter of the wiring. How long does it take you to do that?

Re: Gabcauseican 1998 Accord Sedan EX 5 Speed

Im on my work PC so I try not to click on videos lol. I will check it out when I get home. Coincidentally were the same age but I started working on cars three years ago. I didnt know anything. I started with an oil change and valve cover gasket 3 years ago and since then I have done 3 motor swaps and two transmission transplants lol.

Re: Gabcauseican 1998 Accord Sedan EX 5 Speed

Dude that sucks lol and also looks good. I ended up getting everything figured out this weekend. Im scared to redline it because once it goes into the red it just keeps going lol. Are you going to build the block or just turbo it as is? You probably wont get much boost before it blows because its already high compression.
