    New photos added to 1st post.

    Actually the dark area on the spoiler is CF.

    Gonna leave the diffuser black, though I'd like it better gloss black.

    Picked up a ZZP 26mm RSB, stock is 14mm. Felt a big difference going from the stock Accord 17mm to the Progress 24mm, so looking forward to feeling this 12mm difference.

    I thought ZZP was really only used for Cobalt SS's and such, but it is a GM 4 cylinder turbo, so I can see it. Is this just a re-vamped LNF?

    ^I think they started out with that platform, but grew to support ATS, Camaro, Corvette, etc. ZZP has a lot of support as does BNR, then there are others like Vermont Tuning. ZZP is working to build the first 1000hp ATS.


    I am still learning GM engines but isnt the LHU newer than the LNF? I know the LTG doesn't share the same block as the LHU.

    Installed a strut tower bar, and swapped in a Mishimoto intake tube which fits/looks better. Passenger side strut bar mounting plate contacts the PCV catch can, had to rotate the can and use only one of the bolt mounting holes. Also the bar is a little close to the engine cover so going to get some washers and space it just a bit to make sure it doesn't rub it.

    Yeah it's not like the turbo is very big. The motor is behind the front axle, maybe that is part of it.

    The Accord shouldn't feel too left out, at least there are a number of red accents on the Caddy!

    Car is looking well put together, CB, first pic is a good look.

    Met up with some fellow owners for a small shoot.

    Did a little editing from the first shot. Was supposed to have the 19's on by now but decided it was smarter to use my tax refund for paying off some debt. :doh:
