yeah but this is a performance build and if he's doing everything else, I highly doubt he'd keep something stock just because it "isn't bad" ya know?

Word. It just makes me wonder if it's worth it. I guess the cooler you are the better regardless of anything else.

I'm just saying that because a "performance" build doesn't necessarily mean EVERY component is getting upgraded. Ignition system? etc.

why not use a full sized?
didnt anyone tell you the most important thing for a healthy engine is lub with viscosity and low heat especialy on a turbo build. and believe me you can custom your piping to fit around a full sized radiator

dude you have no idea. im still waiting for my break. i should say i broke my ass making it good for the people and now they keep me waiting for the job. no yes nor a no. if it happens the car is happening in no time even though im already convinced i need to do it because i need something to get around. you know what i need is the confirmation that i have the new job. take a month or two break before i start it and spend the time on the car and car only. it would be the best vacation i could ever ask for...

Amen to that, I feel the exact same way, kumar, we've been modding CL's years before most of the members had their CL's

And most people don't know the directions we've been or are going

its not hard if the motor is out of the car. me and my friends did one on a Integra over the winter. parts should be easy to considering CD Accord LX's are a dime a dozen at the junkyard/
