I'm aware a lot of time and money went into those cars. But it doesn't mean a CL can't be built for the track with the same amount of money. My point is, monkey see, monkey can do.

Just cuz it has an h22 swapped in and is built for track, doesn't mean you couldn't do the exact same on our platform

I'm assuming it's all a misunderstanding. I think he's saying we have nothing in common with them because of everything that was changed in that car to make it what it was then. If you've seen those accords, they have the engine mounted as far back in the engine bay as possible to reduce understeer. Of course there are other things done that makes that car not your typical accord, but my point was, if it was done before, it can be done again. I think he just misunderstood what I was trying to point out, and well, now we're all trying to correct eachother...

Exactly what I was trying to get out. Monkey see, monkey can do. All you need is the desire, time, knowledge and money.

actually alot of JDM CD5 accords have auto climate control too.

those 5th Gen JTCC accords are awesome. i remember that Castrol one when i was younger.

lol very good point you guys. I was thinking the same thing too. With the right amount of money an ingenuity, you can do almost anything to any car. Different people go different routes. anybody got pics of the JTCC accords?


On another note, seeing such an informative well discussed topic instead of ridiculousness on a page on Azine renewed my faith in it.

I think thats another reason we need a builds section, directly for builds such as yours and cocoas and mine and ethenols etc etc. It would have the variety of swaps right there on hand to sample. that would be sweeeeet lol



Cocoa thanks for the pics, i love those accords they're gorgeous. I wonder what they look like under the hood?

No idea... Is it something related to cooling the intake charge? Are they using water to spray the intercooler and recycling it? At first I thought it was a fuel cell then said wait a minute... bad location for a fuel cell and it wouldn't be plastic. But that's my guess since I can't see a FMIC from any of the other pics.

It is a CF intake of some sort, but on the left looks like either a blower or a turbo

From our understanding (my friend and I), they did reverse mount it to move it back as far as possible in the engine bay which helps reduce understeer.

Can someone show me a good pic of an H22 in another accord? I will be able to compare the two and see where the tranny sits. If it sits in the opposite end of these touring accords, then our prediction is correct.

Those touring accords were dominate in their respective racing class. We're talking Ferrari's, Skylines and BMW's being shown up. The h22's were placed with the intake facing the front of the engine bay. They spun the other way like the k-series.

wow those accords are hot. pure hotness. I wonder how much the brakes and suspension setup alone cost.


On another note, as of 1:49am today my wiring issues are taken care of and i'm gonna go pick up the car on monday or so. Too much to do to get out to where its at and get it till then lol.

I love how the accord passes the ferrari challenge car then the GTR. Then again the ferrari challenge cars are pretty slow, my friend eats them all the time on the track in his M3 (track built not street). And I want that sequential manual.

I know what company makes the best suspension for the Accord. But we're talking about a price range like the Moton's. The price for Moton's shocks alone will run you the price of 2 1st gen CL's. The company I'm talking about is named Quantum. They build suspension for F1 cars, Ferrari's, Lambo's, race cars, and of course the Accord. Everything built to your specs. We're talking about suspension with low, mid, and high speed bump adjustablility. Yes, adjusted exactly the way it sounds. Moton's do the same, but you can't find any for our cars. Moton's recommends you get your suspension tuned by a race track engineer after buying their product. Quantum would be no different.

Just came back from H.I.N. @ Belmont Racetrack in NY, took like 200 pics. All the cars out there gave me a ton of ideas for my CL. If only i had the money though . One of the sickest things i did see was a 350z with a Corvette LS2 motor in it! They're sticking that motor into anything these days lol.
