Truth be told: I chose my nick in a horological (no Pirates of the Caribbean pun intended) haste to sign up here at 6thgenaccord.com, alongside the resonating significance to the numero 6 led to the ultimate arrival of the triple repetition. Just so a tinge of clarity is in place, I do not worship the devil/satan/hornsy-goat-looking/beast - my numeric representation on the forums has no bearing on my religious affiliations or lineages. Not a stranger to the world of Honda VTEC engines, it was exactly 20 years ago that I first 5-speed-shifted my once beloved 1996 Honda Prelude SR-V 2.2 litres in the middle of Canada, Edmonton (to be specific). To see + hear + feel the RPM vtec-boosting from 5500 rpm onwards has left an unforgettable x insatiable feeling to my driving experiences till date. From VTECs, I have moved on to a 1990 Nissan 300ZX Twin Turbo, followed by a 1994 Mazda RX7 FD3S Twin Turbo, a 2009 Volkswagen GTI MKV, a 2006 BMW 320i and am now behind the wheel with a 2001 Honda Accord VTI 2.3L Sedan. I love my coupes, still love them but there is just something about a 4 door sedan that completes me. (and/or you for that matter I reckon?) Nonetheless, allow me to introduce my current machina - a stealth-matte black 2001 Accord - in its slightly modded glory (yet to experience a low stance...soon to follow) here on Bali island in way out far east Indonesia (renowned for the Pacific Ring of Fire, active/dormant volcanoes, and incessant earthquakes) I have enjoyed many articles here on the forums, and would like to thank everyone for their energy of goodness that has rippled effects of motivation, appreciation and socialization so widespread here - digitally. Dilema: Approach of 200,000 kms / Engine failure seems imminent / To rebuild or port a used engine / To turbocharge or stick with VTEC purity - That's my question... Till next time...safe drives + journeys to you all!
