no because its very costly, and it would be even more costly to swap in a 6 speed cause a swap with stock tranny would be worthless

2.3 ftw

Cocoa's not the only one doing a swap, plus tons of accord owners have done it, not to mention TL owners on here. But something def needs done with the tranny

I can't imagine how sick our 3.0s would be with a good tranny or manual.

How tight is the fit with that aftermarket IM? When I saw that I kinda wondered how rough it would be to get that JRSC in our engine bay. Would be hella sweet if we could get it to fit on the F22/3's. I know we have more space in our bays than the 5g accords do. Did you have to counter your motor forward at all to give it room or just barely fits?

fitment is tiiigghhht, the intake manual barely fits. the motor its in the same position the stock one did so its ok. if u put a supercharger in there you'll def have to modify the firewall.

Update: massive IM made it difficult to fit IAC valve from CL, it broke, have to go back and get a prelude one. Also, the CL power steering pump bracket from the CL didn't fit either, need to get 1 of those too from a prelude. Had a wiring issue also, and since all the wiring diagrams for the H23 Vtec are in japanese, it made it difficult to solve. Allan once again comes thru in the clutch and shows me the diagrams from the H22 guide since the head on the motor is basically the same as the H22a4, the wiring diagrams will help. Guess this is the price you pay for ingenuity lol.

My friends H22 accord has no power steering, its a pain in the ass when the car is at low speeds and when you're trying to park and whatnot. Plus i have 2 older sisters that are nowhere near as strong as me and they occasionally have to move my car so i need the P/S on there.

Car went back into the shop to pull out the wiring harness to work out a few kinks, so no kills or vids till i get it back again lol. I must say tho, the short shifter with the H tranny in there feels awesome. When i used to put the car into gears, it felt as if i was rowing cuz of how much travel there was. Now theres not even 1/2 the travel to get into each gear, very tight. Can't wait to get her back to really let her rip

I saw your car before the engine was in and talked with Jae about it. Looks like an interesting swap, although I probably wouldn't have chosen the CL for it, no matter what my attachment is to it. I autocrossed my CL recently and the results were hilarious. I guess thats what you get from a suspension design that was released in 1994.

O yeah, and for anybody in the area, they do great work at this shop for amazing prices. As you can see, we take all our cars there now for all the work done to them, not just performance. In this case, the old van's AC wasn't working right.

Haha yeah some say it would be foolish, but i love it so thats all that matters lol. You can always change up the suspension and whatnot, anything is possible with the right amount of money as u can see.

What car do you drive? One of the ones lined up on the side of the shop for work to get done? You need to wash the quest it looks like LOL

Nah, I have a 1999 3.0CL in black. I've had it for nearly 6 years now. Its stock except for a tranny cooler and new struts (both of which were installed by Jae) to replace the blown ones. I don't really see any potential in the car performance-wise compared to other options, unless you spent some serious cash, but even then it wouldn't be that quick or handle that great (again, compared to other options), so I'm just keeping it as reliable, quiet and comfortable to be in as possible. Eventually I'll sell it and get a Legacy GT or something, and build off that.

Ya, the quest is really dirty. Its old though, so you can forgive it. 1993 model, first year it was ever sold. No airbags either . It also probably had a lot of junk in it as well when it was there. Right now the thing is at 195k miles or something. We're hoping it lasts until the big 200k.

Good luck with the project though! Any idea when it will be completely finished and driveable? If I'm bored, I may just stop by tomorrow and check it out, since I have to drive past there anyway when running errands.

For those that don't see the potential in our chasis, look up the JTCC accords. Of course, it takes money to play, but that rule goes for any car.

not anymore, they've changed almost every component in those cars lol. I'm not trying to go full race, just something i have have a few spirited runs with from time to time and be unique with. Our cars aren't naturally sports cars, i know that, its been covered for years on this site. Thanks for the input though.

Same chasis. That's all you need to start off with. We're talking about potential aren't we? Those accords in JTCC back in the day were built of the 5th gen accords. We have their platform.

are you serious? the car is practically an accord. uses same engine/transmission, the only difference is that we have auto climate control and the dash is a little different because of that. and some exterior cosmetic parts, but its still the same car.
