March 2011 COTM: Submission Thread

Submit your recommendations for March 2011 COTM here

March 2011 COTM Submission Thread is now open for submissions.

Theme is:

Considering the lack of involvement from the previous month, Im thinking that themes may not be a good selling point for this showcase. Im going to leave it open to all Acuras for a few months and may include a couple of free for alls to get more exposure on this.

Deadline for submissions will be routine, and it is the 15th of February. Then its 10 days of prelims and 3 days of final voting due to the short month. Get your submissions in now

ALL entries must have a corresponding filled out garage entry before submission.
3 Picture Maximum for sumission posts. Choose your best 3 pics.
Links to build threads, photo threads, profile, or garage are the only links permitted.
Submissions must use the Submission Template Below.
Modifications must be spaced with comas not individual lines to minimize the length of the post.

Username: civicdrivr

Real Name: Morgan

Car Model: 2003 Acura CL Type-S 6MT


Engine/Drivetrain Modifications:
-Custom CAI into an 80MM throttle body
-XS Headers
-PnP heads, lower runners, and intake manifold

-Mugen thermostat, radiator cap, and fan switch
-Corsport aluminum shift cable bushings

-Stainless steel clutch line
-94A Poly Filled Mounts
-NRG torque dampers front and rear
-Ingalls Stiffy

Suspension Modifications:
-Comptech rear sway bar
-Neuspeed front upper strut bar
-Neuspeed Super Cup kit
-Ingalls rear alignment kit
-05 RL 13" BBK up front

Wheels/Tires Modifications:
-18x8.5 +43mm Bronze Work CR-Kai with 235/40 Hankook Ventus V12 Evo K110

-18x8" +48mm RJ Legend GT with 235/40 S.Drives
-19x8.5" +40mm RJ Devotions powdercoated black with 235/35 Kumho Ecsta SPTs

Interior/Exterior Modifications:
-S2000 titanium shift knob
-PSpec short throw shifter
-JL 13TW5-3 in uncald4s enclosure
-Alpine PDX1.600
-Red LED dashboard lighting
-2 12" CCFL bulbs in the trunk (BRIGHT!!)
-Clear spoiler brake light

Reason: Morgan has continued to test the capabilities of the 2G CL without using FI. It has plenty of power to boot yet looks somewhat understated and unsuspecting of the power it holds. I didn't nominate Morgan just because of the CL-S, but also because he's a huge asset to the Acurazine community, commonly helping diagnose Honda/Acura vehicle problems and offering insight to other members about modifying their vehicle. His car recently dynoed at 294hp and 275tq at the wheels without a tune. Don't expect him to be satisfied with that either, I'm sure he will continue to push the CL to it's limits.

Good luck Morgan

Car Model:
2006 Acura TL
Engine/Drivetrain Modifications: AEM V2 CAI,TSUDO Catback
Suspension Modifications: TEIN SS Coilovers, Skunk2 Pro Series front camber kit, Ingalls rear camber kit
Wheels/Tires Modifications:19" Lexanis/Falkin 452 235/35/19, 20" RonJon Legend type 2 (satin black)/Falkin 452 245/30/20
Interior/Exterior Modifications: RonJon Aero Kit, Type-S Rear Taillight conversion, Rear deck lip spoiler, Cleared side markers, Cleared headlights, 8k HID Main and Fog lights, LED turn signal switchbacks
A beautiful representation of both the 3rd Gen TL and the RonJon design. Not only did this TL catch my attention searching through the garages on this forum, but I could not stop staring at it at Acurafest. Tastefully modded, not overdone, but done just right.
