    For mobile device, I use tapatalk, since I have a GS8+ (Galaxy S8+). However, if you don't want to go in that route, typically I upload the pics to Google Drive and share the link.

    Thanks man I like that app a lot better then photo bucket!

    Alright so I’ve driven my accord roughly 4yrs and it’s been boosted for about 2 out of the 4. I decided too boost a 260k mile engine as trial to see how much can this engine can handle! I started out with 4lbs, handles great no problem. The bumped it to 6lbs, still handled fine! Alright let’s do 10lbs, the engine was still holding solid! So I drove it as a daily driver for 2yrs on 10lbs, I put this engine through some abuse testing what kind of cars it could stack up with. The engine 100% stock nothing done besides maint and original engine! Let me just say this engine is very underestimated, took it to some car meets and people couldn’t believe too see a boosted accord. Here’s a pic of the setup, tell me what you guys think or any questions

    So 2 weeks ago I blew it up, finally everyone I knew said lol. So I had to rush to put my F20b swap together.. here’s a few pics of the engine on the engine stand ( the block was bare bone when I blew up my accord lol ) https://drive.google.com/open?id=12sso1R11iZHpWpLUd6gcF_5cPw430LJC

    So I had yank out my f23 out all the good times we had lol https://drive.google.com/open?id=1LpIRycPyrLfP2wdvqsmCy5oOFarf79uB

    And put in the new heart in my accord This swap fairly easy to put in besides the wiring on the distributor and basically just extending wires to reach properly.

    The f20b has arp headstuds, slightly bigger gapped rings, all new gaskets, running 550cc grams injectors, new ACL bearings, KS tuned balance shaft delete,Skunk2 intake manifold with matching throttle body, ebay log manifold for reliability, ebay turbo I rebuilt myself and sent to be balanced, custome down pipe. ( all work done by myself)

    Dang dude. I had the same exact problem except I swapped in one more lol. My F23 spun a bearing 6 months after I missed fourth and went to second. Swapped in an H23a1 which literally exploded, broke a cylinder , destroyed the crankshaft and broke the #2 rod into pieces. then I went to an F20b. Hopefully this one holds up. Its exactly what I wanted. F23 bottom end (
    iron sleeves) with h22 top (more or less). Congrats on the swap and good luck with the build! :karate:

    How are you guys spinning all these bearings? No oil? Bouncing off the rev limiter?

    1-2-3-2 at 100 mph was my case. 6 months later the bearing went.
