>>20372780>How do I join the collage? See pic related.
>>20372787>literally seconds after OP was postedcamper
>>20372796just lucky, friend
>>20372780Is it lame if I put Mugen shit on my 05 Honda Accord 6MT Coupe with hfp body kit?
>>20372968Like what? If you put mugen dildos on your roof I'm sure people will think it's lame and gay
>>20369460>12-24months I don't think is worth it for eitherI'm not expecting any return when I get rise of it. I just want some more fun until I upgrade.
>>20372979Kinda want to get these
>>20373032dont do that
>>20373038Well, how about these then?
>>20373048Dont buy any of that fake branded trash, if you want seat covers just buy plain ones
Put my car in the OP again, niggers.
Went to a smol meet tonight in New Orleans.>my poorfag shitbox EG>Holden (Chebby) SS>C6 Z06>Type RReal cool guys. A TSX left right before I took the pic. He just got it dyno tuned and made 232whp naturally aspirated. I couldn't even hear my car idling when I was standing next to my exhaust when he started it up right behind my car. kek
>>20373075Proofs it's mine.
>>20373076Loving the blue.
>>20373080Was hoping more would show, but still a good time.Nice thing about Hondas is almost everyone in these kinds of groups has had one and loves talking about them. The Z06 owner actually has his own Civic Type R at home.
>new breadfucking finally.Now I have questions.I know the 03-07 Accord and 04-08 TSX are considered sister cars. How close are they?I know the TSX K24A2 drops right in with no mods, but what about wiring?Is the suspension interchangeable between them? brakes?
>>20373082How's the rattlecan paint holding up so far?
>>20373080You know, the civic gets shit on for its fake vents but I love that the car exists without having a fuckin massive front grill
Thinking about an eg or ed(ef) hatch for a first car and learn to modify, what should I expect also recommended first mods?
>>20375676>recommended first mods?wheels and tires man.Then upgrade the brakes.THEN the suspension.And after that you can worry about any swap your heart desires.
>no crv's in the collageshould I post mine
>>20374387It's decent. The rear bumper is getting stained with exhaust though. Doesn't want to come off even with the brush at the car wash. >>20375380Eh it's not like fake vents haven't always been a thing. The rear ones are kind of weird though.
>>20373484bump for answers.
>>20372780>headunit not really working with BT anymore>tap it a few times>screen breakswhatnew one looks nice. i dont understand why pioneer changed the design of the power cord though.
>>20375904My new Pioneer looks 10x better than my old one. Definitely worth getting.
>>20372792>when you thought the OP was a city skyline of Japan or whatever >mfw its actually a graph of carswell bake my snake>>20373484Wikipedia says "jump to 7th gen JDM and EDM accord" So its probably really similar for the i4 engines, but not identical to the USDM accord. Can't really say much more.
Hello I have installed a quick release on to my car.I am rice now
>>20375961Even in the cool as fuck cog commercial, the enterior looks like a CM.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z57kGB-mI54
>>20375965>Tfw forced to get a quick release because I didn't know horn wouldn't fit with a short hub alone>Now like quick release because it makes working inside the car much easierThat's the only time I really take the wheel off.
>>20375975you should try a quick tilt
>>20372792>>20375961"proof" picits a dried rolled up salmon skin for the food
>>20375967>>20375995whoopsWhat parts are you looking for in particular?
>>20375867Dude needs to wax or coat better, I would think my Championship White would stain worse than Aegean Blue
>>20376004time to rejoin the collagemolasses on roof for proof
do I want a crv?
>>20376359It's my Rust-Oleum without clear staining. I don't have a cat either so that probably doesn't help. Kek>>20375979I've been interested in those. I might get one one day along with a non NRG wheel.
>>20376480Kek I'll bet your hatch rolls mad coal, even a CM will shoot a puff of smoke when it kicks down.
>>20376469i think the 2010 generation of CRV was my favorite
>>20376488I bet it does but I can't see shit from inside. Idle with the wind blowing in colder weather I see the usual clear stuff. The rear end is a magnet for all the dirt and exhaust. Just one day at work will undo a wash big time.
This is my favorite neighborhood in my area. Has such a comfy small village feel.
HelloI have a 1995 honda accordthe check engine light has been on forever, it starts hard every time in every condition.I'm done dealing with it being out of shape, anyone here a honda tech able to help me figure this shit out?
>>20376680Have you read the code? If not, fuck off and do that
>>20376687Yeah but it's been a while and I can't remember what it isI'm gonna go read it in a few.
Are Acura TL's the same thing as V6 Accords?
>>20376546Shortly after this pic the fogs shorted out and popped the fuse again.Why the hell is the fog housing live? How can I make it not?
>>20376687>>20376680>>20376691Code 09, no1 cylinder position sensor
>>20376761is it shorting or is it just drawing too much current?
>>20376786Here’s a shit picture of my shitbox would have got a better one but it’s cold out and I wasn’t dressed for it
>>20376788Whenever the fog housing touches the radiator support behind it the fuse pops. I'm not even sure how a current is going through it since it just holds the bulb and nothing else. Actually it's a two wire pigtail on the housing so one of those has to be a ground wire.
>>20376819Is it possible that the hot and ground wires going to the bulb are switched? If they are, the bulb will still light but the body of the bulb could be positively charged which could in turn, make the housing positively charged.Just an idea
>>20376830It is an eBay product so that might be the case. I'll check it out after work. I've been using flex tape on the housing and radiator support to keep the metal from touching each other. Kek
>>20376794Looks like I need to check for current at the distributor and likely replace itlike 4th distributor in as many years...Just KBB'd the car and it's totaled itself by now with all these repairs. Feelsbadman.
>>20376726For the most part they are, just with a higher level of technology, higher compression engine needs premium, more gears in AT. Higher overall cost just because "muh luxury brand".
>>20376480top kek my reading comprehension is shit today
>>20376830So I went to pull my bumper off to check the wires and sure enough the black ground wire of the harness was plugging into the white positive for the bulb. Took some prying to get the connectors out but I swapped them and they still light up. We'll see if they ground out again. Damn eBay shit.
I want something other than my 8th gen Civic LX as a DD. How are Preludes, 80-90s accords, and S2000s as DDs?
>>20378198>S2000Very expensive, probably $15,000 minimum for a decent one>Accord80's ones are extremely rare, and carbed ones aren't worth it. 90's ones are the stuff of legends and run forever. Stock 90's Hondas are all slow with an auto. >PreludeFifth generation (late 90's) are a good deal. 200 crank horsepower stock, and very comfy. It was Honda's halo car at the time. May consume oil but keep it lubricated and it'll run a long time.Also consider RSX Type-S.
Here’s my shitbox from last night
>>20378224I found some around 9k.The 90s accords (pre facelift) and prelude are probably my top choice for a different honda DD.Thanks shingu!
>>203783449k for the S2000, range was like 8,999-15
>>20373082How do you like your civic? I was thinking of getting a 95 as a backup vehicle/DD
>>20378516I love it and have driven it over 100,000 miles since getting it summer of 2015. Definitely a tank of a car. Can be worked on from top to bottom with only the most basic tools, and just about every part is cheap and easy to find. Just change the timing belt unless it has documentation of it being changed and you're good to go. I'd avoid an automatic though unless the fluid has been changed every 30k. It's the weakest point. Manuals are very strong. I've never had any actual engine issues aside from a head gasket which was my fault. I regularly rev it to 7000 every other day.
>>20378540Just what I needed to hear, it was between this and a P71 but I figure the Honda would be more reliable long term. Thanks my man
>>20378712>but I figure the Honda would be more reliable long term.It's really a toss-up. There's a reason those P71s are known for going over 500k miles. Honestly, I'd say the P71 is more reliable. The Civic is just more economical and efficient.
>>20378757Civic has more choices when you start throwing money into it. Comes down to comfy vs potential
>>20378904That's not to say the P71 doesn't have aftermarket support. There's manual transmission swap kits, endless engine parts, and a decent amount of suspension upgrades from P71-specific stuff (like a watts link from Metco) to suspension components interchangeable with SN95 and Fox-body Mustangs.
>>20378540the revs killed the head gasket?
>>20373075>Forgetting to include the yearfaggot
>>20375848There was 3 at its peak. Idk where they went though.
>>20375961>when you thought the OP was a city skyline of Japan or whatever See pic related.
>>20375961Year?>>20376367Year?Too lazy to look back desu
>>20378757I guess what I meant to say was economical. They’re reliable and basic enough that when something does break it’s no big deal, or at least that’s what I’ve gathered. A V8 sounds nice to have but I already have a Volvo 240 that gets eh gas mileage and it needs quite a bit of work that I can’t do because it’s my DD
>>20380029>skin is greener >feet are more webbb>room in moms isn't as clean>no stashed good boi points heh kid>>203800402008 CS2 with nav>>20378712literally a fart can
>>20373484bump for actual answers
>>20380543No. There, happy?
>>20380547No. Fuck off.
>>20380566Well its true. Onlt some parts are interchangable.
>>20378952Nah I let it get too hot and didn't notice. Had a coolant leak pop up. >>20378712I used to daily the family Crown Vic in the mid 2000's and honestly hated it. Never was into land yachts. Was thirsty as fuck for gas too.
How the hell am I supposed to drift in a Type-R?
>>20380743lift off oversteer or buy better car
>>20380782But there very few better cars in the same price range.
>>20380791Nihga there are better cars in lower price ranges, anyone who bought it at the over inflated price is a fool.
>>20380791spend 30k less, buy a 240, drift it
>>20380802>over inflated priceThe type r is a performance bargain at 35k
>>20380802Name such cars.>>20380803I don't want such an old car though.
>>20380813Yea you're not getting one for msrp though, thats the problem, there are douche bags selling Typers for $36K with 6600 miles on it.
>>20372787I second that
>>20373075As he wishes he could push 300hp
>>20380813$36,595 including delivery>>20380815you seem really annoying
>tfw only have a month to update my collage image and renew it>haven't been able to wash car in months because something always happens the things never getting detailed at this point i feel like.>>20380743why would you want to???if you care so much about drifting buy literally anything else.>>20380813wait it has dropped? the things were reaching 40k when i last checked.
well /hg/It's come to my attention that my accord isn't worth fixing anymore, replacing the distributor and power steering pump totals it. RIP accordwut next?I want something rwd; coupe, sedan or hatch
>>20381050Not really a honda except the nsx and s2k. >>20380743See above. Or you could track a type R. That's really what they're for anyways. Not every car is good at everything. Honda's are good at driving fast at tracks and twistys. Drifting is literally a sport where the car is good at one thing at one time, track guud cars can be fun DDs and track cars.
>>20381050Shit my Civic has no power steering factory, and I can get a distributor for under $70 on eBay. But if you want a RWD coupe I'd look at Toyotas. Mk3 Supra or any MR2.
>>20381093I'm exaggerating a bit, but it's really only worth one set of tires at this point. Probably not worth replacing 'em twice
>>20381108Fair enough. I'd also look out for S13 and S14 240SX, but a lot of those are beat up. Could get lucky though.
>>20380802You're mad you can't afford the perfomance bargain of the decade.
>>20380743You fucking don't you ninny. Why would you want to? Owning one and tracking one I can't imagine wanting to drift one.
>>20381106American Insurance schemes in a nutshell
>>20381106KBB values my accord $690-900Dizzy and power steering pump ~$250>25% of value of carIt doesn't really total it, I'm exaggerating.
>>20381530>tfw 4 CM window motors replaced costs more than a whole EH2 civic with laborI really hope the CV1 doesn't blow turbos and became a throwaway vehicle combined with all the electrical gremlins.
gonna do the timing belt and water pump when it gets warmer. the previous owner said it was done recently but he was sus af so I'm just gonna do it anyway.
>>20381765That is a nice stocc EJ8.
>>20381770thanks. it's rare seeing stock 6th gens that aren't beat to shit and riced out in my area lmao.
>>20376367I'll use this image unless you say otherwise lol
>>2038225885>>20375961Will add fâm 08

I don't feel like going in the rain so...Hope holding a CPU stuck to it's heat sink that I tore out for a replacement works as proof lel.My Civic is the 13' one expiring on 3/19 btwNot sure if I want to change image.I'll post another maybe.Rain really hides the clouded to shit roof paint.
Guess I'll just use this for collage image.Btw anyone know how to get coffee stains out of leather?
>>20383398>AMD stock coolerI know that feel.
>>20383398>needs more Coolermaster bro
>>20383849AMD stock coolers are decent. They at least cool the CPU, unlike Intel.>>20383398You're supposed to wiggle the cooler to ensure it separated before removing it. Why were you removing it anyways? Upgrading to Ryzen?
>>20383907AMD's stock coolers are made by Cooler Master though
>>20383986the wraith series are, but the original and low end are now. The speccy I posted, which was a high performance desktop sized server and has xeon equivalent of i7-9xx, went completely the the other way. Cheap aluminum fins but the fans are smaller and high speed/noise but have ducts around everything they need to cool. I had a hyper 212 evo on my last srs beans AMD, an fx 8320 drawing about 150W tdp with its over clock. Like a turbo engine, the CPU was fine, but the transmission didn't last forever, and the VRMs failed on the MB. Even though it was supposed to one of the ones capable of supporting the FX 97xx series with a TDP of 220W. Lel, fuck me. You should get a better sink if you don't have a wraith.
>>20383986Evo212, never looked back. drastic temp decrease like 10c +
>>20384039>the wraith series are, but the original and low end are now.Even going back to the early 2000s, AMD's box coolers were made by Cooler Master.>>20384040I hope it's at least the new 212 Black, otherwise, the normal 212 is pretty fucking ugly. Good performance value though
>>20384078Its not the black one, bought new off newegg, I give 0 fucks about looks when it comes to shit like that, all I care about is performance. Id slap a pink dildo in there so long as it worked well
>>20383460>>20383398You don't need proof to renew
anyone out for some comfy snow drives?
Is a 2005 Honda Accord that has seen 3 accidents but still has a sturdy chassis worth trying to tune? Or is it time to let the thing die?
>>20384991I should also add. It's past 300,000 miles.
>>20385007I say why not give it some love? It deserves it after 300k miles.
>>20385013Because I'm not sure if after 300k I should be worried about the water pump or transmission failing. And at that point its cheaper to get a used car, which I don't want to do.
Looking at 8th gen Civic Si's. How many miles is too many?
>>20385095I think its really more about how it was cared for. But at 200k you're going to run into a lot of side things breaking that arent critical but are going to degrade how comfy it is. But besides that, one that's been beat to shit for 80k miles vs one that's been babied for 120k miles? The problem is the beat to shit Si is really common in that age/price. I wouldn't buy one unless its got a really detailed service history and is completely clean, unmodified, etc
>>20385223How does this look?https://www.cars.com/vehicledetail/detail/760874009/overview/
>>20384991>>20385007>>20385032Same fag, as I need this car for transport, will not fixing a pushed in castor cause any damage, cause further problems, etc. To my vehicle? The mechanic I took it to for an alignment said it didn't need to get fixed right away, but as dear Dad always said, never just take a mechanics word for it.
>>20385434uneven caster can cause the car to pull to one side but that doesnt necessarily mean it willOtherwise it doesnt matter
>>20385329That's a good price for what it is, I'd definitely buy it
>>20384991Is it a 5 speed or auto?
>>20384991>He thinks accidents can keep a marysville car down
>>20386349then no. Not worth shit
>>20386349Autos have a bad track record of failing in 03-07 accords. Such as slipping , losing 3rd gear, etc. So unless it was babied and maintained with drain and fills, i doubt it has much life left especially at 300k+, then again you never know. Kind of surprised it doesnt already have some slipping unless it was rebuilt.
Kiafag here; been a while.Car died Saturday; turned out I spun a bearing. So, I'm now back on the market for a new car; there's a shitty 2004 Suzuki Forenza for sale, in town, for $2k, and there's a beautiful high-mileage, white 2003 CM5 25 miles away for $2,300.
>>20387332I actually know a guy who had a Forenza and it gave him hell from day one. Not to mention Suzukis have such a tiny American presence that I bet parts would be a bitch to find.
>>20387332Let me tell you right now that this car has always been a piece of shit. It might not have left me stranded on the side of the road, until recently, but that did not mean it annoyed the fuck out of me.First off, the headlights used retaining clips, to hold the bulbs in, and they were a bitch to figure out. Then there's the fucking power locks. I'm not sure if this was a feature or a malfunction, but when you press the button to lock all the doors, the driver door remains unlocked; you'll need to use your key to lock it! Not only that, something has been causing the locks to engage by themselves, whenever I close the driver door; I get out with my hand nowhere near the button, and the locks will engage between opening the door and closing the door.The transmission would sometimes slip and I would need to shift into "Sport Mode" to manually upshift. Not only that, my upper radiator tank recently cracked, so I had to make sure the reservoir tank was filled to the brim, every week, to keep the engine from getting hot.So, I'd say I'm glad I'm not going to have this car anymore.>>20387341There are mixed reviews, online. People either say it's a great car, which I assume are people who know little about cars, or the car is a nightmare. Apparently, you need to remove a motor mount and lift the engine in order to replace spark plugs.
>>20387360I'm not that worried about what car I'm going to get because I'm planning on getting a trucking job soon and just need a vehicle that can take me to the terminal.Once I do have a CDL job, I'm planning on saving up for an S2000.
Throttle surge is back on the MDX. Can't tell if it's the torque converter or the idle control.Mom's ruined the sparkplugs thinking they needed cleaned as well.For now I'm going to assume it's Judder from the Torque Converter Lock-Up Clutch like most complain about with this auto. Do I need to take this to an Acura dealer for software replacement/updates or no? If not I'm just gonna change atf
>>20387611>Do I need to take this to an Acura dealer for software replacement/updates or no?If there is one available id do that to try and rule it out.Lolwut How did she ruin sparkplugs?Idle sure souds like vacuum leak, iacv, dpfe sensor
>>20388898>order replacement headlights(tyc, nsf certified, yes i know this means basically fuckall) off rockauto for my cm6>Mounting tabs are about an inch + off>cant return because over 6 months>would have to pay to ship back for a warranty replacement that might have the same problemYes im fucking madGonna take a hair dryer to the base or the mounting tabs and see if i can move them into the correct position.
>>20389343drill more holes
What the fuck is a marysville car? I keep seeing it in these threads, learn me.
>>20389714It is an Acura TL, ILX, TLX, an Accord made since 1983, the new CR-V from 2018 onward, and the new NSX, made in the MAP (Marysville Auto Plant).
>>20378198>S2000s as DDs?It's doable but isn't ideal for highway driving, especially if you get an aftermarket exhaust well because my exhaust makes a constructive frequency at around 60mph so it's actually louder at 3k then 4k rpm (which is 72~ mph). The trunk is big enough for groceries and can fit like two duffel bags for day trips.
>>20389782the word you want is resonance
>>20389574Doesnt work like that
I'm thinking used, manuel transmission, and 6 cylinder without a bunch of useless tech/computerized shit that will go bad in 10 years. Car will have to be outside all the time for at least two years, and I don't care if it's two door or four. Low price is key.What should I be looking at?
>>20390457Just get an Accord manual as new as you can afford.
>>20390457Honda AccordInfiniti G35Nissan 350Z
Cant decide what to buy. Haven't had a manual in 3 years and need it back. Looking to buy an integra or accord. I like the wishbone suspension on the integra but all the GSR's near me are shit. Wondering what your thoughts are on this.
>>20390666Integra is so ratty and old, get an FG Civic or an Accord.
>>20390507Heh, i was gonna post this same shit
>>20390712What about the del Sol?
>>20390966Del Slo is cool, it's technically a real EG and uses civic parts.
>>20390966>>20391047Rust Rust RustEven California cars and desert states have rusty Del Sols
>>20391081Shit Del Sols aren't even that common of a Honda in Socal, for me at least, mainly the EG8 and EH2 slammed to the floor with a duck spoiler.
>when you increase the wheelbase by 5 inches and you're still good as hell with itI just realized the Accord hasn't seen such an increase in wheelbase with one generation to this day.
>checking out civics on CL>see thisNigga literally used a red sharpie.
>>20387332I'd drag my dick across the ground for 25 miles to get a running CM for $2300.
>>20391447I love motorweek so muchWhats the chassis codes for the various generations of accord?I've seen a person driving a 3rd gen accord coupe, 5 speed manual. Absolutely beautifulThe 4th gen in your post are amazing cars too
>>20391588Third gen sedan is a CA5, the coupe is a CA6, 4th gen sedan is a CB7, 5th gen 4cyl sedan is a CD5, 6th gen sedan is a CG1 or CG6 if it's EX, 7th gen Accord sedan is a CM5 if 4cyl, CM6 if V6, then CM7 for a 4cyl coupe and CM8 for a V6 coupe.Honda is weird with the chassis codes, sometimes the engine or trim can make the difference, because a CG6 can have a V6 or the 2.3 and be the same chassis code because EX.
>>20391615.negects to mention the third gen hatchback
>>20391664That is such a rare bird and I've only seen one in my life.
>>20391671I saw one too on a back road in Mississippi. Threw me off for a second. >Get
>>20391671Seen a 3rd gen accord hatch on craigslist and it was in good condition, would have gotten it if I didn't already have too many cars. I dont see it listed anymore so Im guessing it was sold
>>20391706It's so easy to mistake one of those things as an old Corolla GT-S, but it's just a usdm Accord, I didn't even know there was ever a hatch until then.
>>20391735I'd love to have one but they're far too rare to daily, unless I swapped it for a 80s Honda engine and transmission. An Aerodeck would be amazing to have too.
>>20391741>80s90s I meant. An H22 would be real cool.
>2014 civic sedan>$8700 list price>thinking of offering $8k and buying in cashy/n? i need a daily driver
>>20391996Do it, Anon. R18 Civic fuckin works as a daily.
>>20391996Sounds like a good deal to me.How many miles? No accidents?

>>20392033I'd definitely do it.Wish I found a deal that good when I was looking to buy.
>my ricer acquaintance sold the Del Sol I drove around d the world to get for him and got thisIt's better than that Del Sol but goddamn son. Pretty sure those are CG Accord headlights. Definitely an early 2000s relic.
>>20392864I can only imagine the amount of issues it has. Or what the interior looks like. I should check it out next time I'm in the area.

Full deathtrap also rusted good. Not as funny as the riced crx I posted here once though.
Hey all, total fucking no-nothing about autos punk ass bitch here attempting to solicit advice with nothing to provide in return.I'm retiring my beat to fuck 2006 Saab 9-3 at ~145k miles that was my DD for the past 10 years fucking hate this car. fuck this car..I'm feeling pretty sold on the honda civic sport hatch 2016+ .. But I don't know shit about cars and being that these models are fairly new it's hard to dig up any meme-tier concerns that esoteric auto niggas like yourselves would know about.Any major red flags on this model? And, is there any major difference across the years 2016-2019?I know there is some contention on the aesthetics but I really like the look and it doesn't bother me much that the vents are fake or whatever.. I think it looks fucking sick desu...Thanks
>>20394226The fits are still using the same reliable 1.5L but with direct injection (earth memes) to get more MPGs, don't worry about the fake vents, the hottest civic type r right now has fake vents and people still love it.

>>20395074easy Ran into this guy that does contract work for the MSP I work for. Really awesome bro, and he comes in and supports us for big projects. Well his car got totaled too, and so he had to upgrade. Its the 07 TL-S with the better engine/suspension. Pearl white, max legal tint, sounds good. Really good to run into him, and better to have such similar cars.
>>20395368TL Type-S with the quad tips was my favorite booty before the CR2 existed, it's an old design but it looks great.
About to get a CB300R or a 500F, gonna be my second honda along with my 2016 civic
>>20395417thats exactly what it wasSpeaking of the CS1 is rated at 268-271 HP and honda similar torks. Why is every dyno rating I can find for these cars at like 250 for the MT? Is the engine under rated?>>20395519get a 250RR
>>20395653It probably is underrated, 268hp with a 15% loss would be 227 at the wheels, kinda like how my uncle's old G coupe was rated for 280 horse, but it felt like it was over 300.
>>20394925Me and a few friends on discord we're all looking for the worst things we could find through Craigslist when I found it.I found a lot of riced ludes but the deathtrap race ones and the fake gtr, silvia, and z car ones made me die inside the most.I think someone here may have posted the gtr fake before maybe. The interior is good awful.Shit like this makes me scared for when I'm ready to take on a project car.>>20395519Pls add it to the collage we need more bikes. I like the looks of the 300
I need to get a car asap - how do I ensure something hasn't been riced to shit? Where do I even start - dealership?

>>20376680Idle air control valve mine has the same but 2002 accord and I'm broke atm and will fix it soon but it's wrecking my shit
>>20378540Are the automatics that bad? Looking into it it seems like manual swaps aren’t so hard. If they’re that prone to failure though maybe it’s best to steer clear
>>20396133look up for sale ads anywhere, whether dealer or private owner. I commonly alternate between autotrader, cars.com, and craigslist. Use your head when looking at ads, and ask questions when looking in person.
>>20372780im torn, i currently have a legend coupe 6 speed but i can stop wanting to swap for an accord wagon manual. whats yalls opinions? this would be my daily
>>20396700Accord wagoos are cool, but unless your legend is in really bad shape, or costing you alot to own I'd keep driving it, because the newest wagoos are 21 years old.
>>20396715its got 170k miles, lots of minor issues from previous owner but I just did water pump/timing belt its a 93 though so same age as the wagon i would want to get.anybody have an accord wagon?
>>20396324Yeah manual swaps aren't too hard from what I've heard. My buddy manual swapped my first 1993 Civic. They can be pretty bad but you can only really tell from driving them. I had no issues when I had mine but later on when my roommate was driving it after I got my hatch the flex plate snapped and that required pulling the transmission out to fix. Then I sold it to my buddy and that transmission died later on, he replaced it then manual swapped it after that. The same year Corollas have much better autos from my experience owning a 1994, but they're quite a bit less fun to drive due to the different suspension. Double wishbone has a much better feel to me.>>20396753I think the Legend is much much cooler, but a same year Accord would definitely be better on gas and have more parts available.
>>20384853I can't wait till it warms back up
hi /hg/, keep those Hondas revvin'.
>>20392864I can see the original crx bumper underneath that body kit.
>>20396593auto tempest searches all car listings on the major sites. Its really neat desu Car Gurus will check the KBB value, approximately, and then compare that value vs the list and say whether its a good deal or not. I like that because you can at least get a feel for what's a deal, and research further. If you go to a dealer, negotiate the out the door price, not the sales price. Lookup what the car should have been traded in for. EX a car listed at 7k was probably traded in at $35-3800, and they need to make some money, so you could walk for $45-5000>>20396324I guess the question is how much trouble is it worth. I would prefer to stick to manual. It seems like the normies that drive manual tend to take better care of their cars. They have enough love for the car to make it last. >>20397245>some of the best meme cars of the 90sNot bad meme cars, like I genuinely like them as meme cars>>20397268is that the NSX that got the J35 swap?
How does it feel know the flagship Honda (Type R) is slower up and downhill than the Toyota 86 and Subaru STI?
>>20395059well the other's aren't as good looking imo
>>20399498How does it feel knowing the flagship subaru is slower up and downhill than the RS-25 which is 38 years old. The STi only has 310hp whereas the FUEL PUMP for the RS-25 produces over 640 horsepower
>>20399682Cars aren't a dick measuring contestAll cars are good

>>20400438Honda makes me happy though. I want my 8,000 rpm screamers back.
>>20400451I get it, and it's unfortunate a type r cannot rev for shit because turbo, but those torque figures though, and my Accord can't rev for shit, so a 2.0T with 6500rpm redline and 273 torks is a car I welcome with open arms.
>>20400460The 86 is the closest we have. It redlines at 7500 rpm.
>>20400451>>20400460>>204004727k rpm ain't that bad anons
>>20400631I think it's more than enough, you've got turbo shitboxes that are barely 6000rpm shifting, also Honda's 2.0T sounds really good imo, which is great for a boi who doesn't do mods.
>>20400460turbo aint got nuttin to do with not being able to hit revs
>>20400631Well you already bought the new turbo civics, just enjoy it. I just couldn’t move on from older n/a Hondas. My s2000 will be last Honda
>>20400661I know, the way the turbo is set up is to get a torque curve that is super strong and drops off, which is cool for my driving.

>>20401099Aren't motor mounts getting ridiculously complex too? They're simple as fuck on my antique Honda. Metal brackets with rubber bushings.

I got a bunch of new suspension parts for my 1996 Accord, and I just realized that the rack and pinion boots don't have the little air nipple that attaches to the line that keeps the pressure between the boots even. How big of a deal is that? Should I go get new boots that have it?
Hey lads, not sure whether anyone might know, but. I bought a Honda Accord Euro 2009 Lux auto. Last night was cleaning the engine with a mate, all good. Opened the trunk and there was a small pool of water below the spare. We looked for 15 minutes of where the leak might be coming from but have no idea.We checked both vents from the sunroof, the lining of the boot was okay too. Opened the rear lights access from trunk that was okay too. Even weirder though, I put a white jacket in the boot before I realised there was a leak and it got brown little drip like stains on it. Really fucking stumped. No obvious marks from the boot where it might have come from too. At the moment I’ve just left the left drain plug off so it doesn’t accumulate anymore and cleaner the mould. Bought the car a few weeks back aus with 110kkm on the clock for a first car and am loving it. Just want to make sure she’s right.
>>20401554Don't worry about that, family. Honda Accords can naturally pick up water in the trunk pan.
>>20401572Yeah but rust
>>20401587The Accords have corrosion protection down there, I've had puddle of water sitting in there, but it never hurt it.It does look concerning, though.
>>20398808>is that the NSX that got the J35 swap?no, my particular NSX is stock.
Former Kiafag here.I ended up getting a 1999 Chevrolet Corolla; I ended up not being able to afford to spend a lot and this Prizm was in the best condition for its price, compared to other cars. The owner had a mechanic for a friend and they took good care of the car, mechanically - the engine was rebuilt 93,000 miles ago. The only faults were some annoying little tidbits, such as the adjusters for all three mirrors are worn, some of the radio buttons didn't seem to work (I'm unable to reset the clock), and it has one bad tire. The performance, braking, and handling are fantastic for a 20-year-old car. Even the paint is pristine; either they kept it in a garage or they repainted the car.
>>20401632That paint looks original, nice.Inb4 that piece lasts annoyingly long.
>>20401632>>20401638Also those chevy rollas were built in Fremont, CA, I didn't even know cars could be built in California.
>>20401638Yeah; Georgia isn't a serious threat for cars, regarding rust, unless it get flooded.
>>20391455I just realized my SI doesn't have a red emblem.
>>20372780Hope ppl are still here, im looking for a k20 but its more expensive than i had hoped for at least on the polish market and if you guys could tell me how much does it cost where you live it would be much appreciated, thanks.
>>20404246depends on the K-series engine in question.
>>20404308Im somewhat fresh to hondas, dont really know the difference between diffrent series. Im thinking about the one in this s2000 https://youtu.be/xg62C2Nx07I
>>20404326Well, here in the US market, there's a decent amount of choiceK20A3 - 160 HP, no traditional VtecK20A2 - 200 HP, traditional VtecK24A2 - 200 HP, traditional VtecK24A4 - 165 HP, no traditional VtecK24A8 - 165 HP, no traditional VtecThe engines without vtec are cheaper to get ahold of, but then you don't have vtec.There's a bunch of youtube series on budget K-swaps.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Fcv0QU-rKzohttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFCkolT90WYhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H1umJKdXGXU
>>20404377Thats helpful, was looking for a list like that, thanks mate.Wanted to get a hold of the K24A2 by the looks of it but im also guessing its the most expensive.
>>20404377>K24A4That's thing has so much torque and it runs on cheap gas, I love it,it's like a $650 dollar engine on eBay or cheaper if you go to the junkyard.
>>20404403mmm. but to convert it to Vtec, you not only need the cylinder head from one of the A2 engines, you also need new pistons.
>>20404422Ehh that's alot of work, if you need that exhaust lobe vtec, get the K24A2.
>>20404422Will check out how much would it cost to convert a4 to vtec rather than getting the a2. Also dont know if its that important if im planning on boosting it anyways. Thanks for the help, much appreciated.
>>20404018It's not dead, but it is a shame a tree fell on it and I had to get rid of it.
>>20404674Oh CMs never die, but it sucks when we can't have them anymore because it gets damaged to much.
>be nocarz>live in rust belt so double cucked>boss sells cars as a side gig>gets a 2000 CR-V from an auction>clean as shit, most of the consumables were replaced by the previous owner, only 3 spots of rust>243k miles>he wants 2500 for it>mfw that's all of my emergency fundsI want it so bad lads.
>>20405335>243k>19 year old crvI wouldn't pay more than $500.
>>20405335Not worth it my dude
>>20405335don't do it
What is needed to swap a K24A2 into a CM5 or CM7 Accord? I know the engine will bolt in without issue, but I mean computer/wiring-wise
>>20405389This leaf has done it in his CM5 with a Ktuner ECU.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=c6B3TIBTlEM
>>20405352The mileage is what has me hung up. Damn thing started right up, drove like new and it's obvious the old owner took care of it. But when you're talking about 250k miles, there's a million fuckin things that could go wrong before the next oil change cycle is up. If only it had 100k less on the clock.
>>20405477I wouldn't worry about the mileage on a Honda, my Accord has a little over 124,600 miles and the power steering doesn't work that well, and some things don't work, the car was clearly built on a Monday morning but it's still a great running car.Also $2500 is way too much for an old CUV.
>>20405584There was a recall on the p/s feed line.I just replaced the p/s return lines an front cooler line on my cm6. Also replaced the orings for the feed line and return line so it no longer leaks or whines when its cold. Whats wrong with your steering?
>>20405335Id want to take care of those rust spots ASAP especially living in the rust belt. But yeah $2500 seems high, might need suspension work done too like ball joints or wheel bearings
>>20401363No not that kind of nuke. Fusion research. I'm thinking working in the deposition industry (Ti coating on razor blades for example) should get me the experience I need.I do live in the biggest navy city on the east coast. We had 4 carriers in port and the newest one being built, 2nd with the EM catapult can't remember the name, also being built. So like r4.5 in town? Saw F/A-18E hornets buzzing the beach bc of the nice weather today.
>>20405584If the previous owner of the red hatch was correct and the D series had 60k when I bought it, it has around 160k now. Still runs like a top and it gets a 7000 rev every day. Though that guy was an idiot so it could be a lie.>Takes $500 off asking price because of a $40 map sensor>Rolls fenders with pliers>Doesn't cotter pin lower ball joints>Sends it with one bolt on transmission mount instead of helicoiling the other two threads
>>20405611My PS fluid is full, but the power steering doesn't work well, it whines when I turn the wheel on a cold engine, and sometimes It will be as stiff to turn as an old Civic, but I like it sometimes, it's super racecar compared to my uncle's CR2 where I drive with two fingers.
>>20401626Wanna trade for a San Marino red cs1 accord? The 0 to 60 should be faster? Pls?
>>20405629One oring should take care of the whining when cold.https://youtu.be/uJkESNAVx20Any honda dealer should have it for like 1-2 bucks, easy to replace.Check your suspension parts and drive belt if you have hard steering at times. Belt could be slipping or suspension parts could need replacement. Tie rods, ball joints, etc
>>20405624You need to figure out what you want to do. "Nuclear engineer" is almost always synonymous with an employee at a reactor.Also, how is deposition industry and fusion research supposed to be related? All of the deposition stuff I've done uses plasma/plasma reactorAre you planning on doing theory or being an experimentalist? Because unless you are really good, you are going to have an extremely difficult timeNot sure what school you are going to, for what degree, what advisors you have, where you are at in your courses but it sounds to me like you're confused about what to do. No bully, i graduated with a degree in theoretical physics and have family that work at reactors
>>20405621Well, it passed PA inspection just today, and he's planning on touching up the spots tomorrow. I recall the suspension among being the stuff that the previous owner fixed alongside brakes, the alternator and some others.
Oh no Scotty what are you->it's the 2005 hybrid versionYou clickbaiting son of a bitch. kek>says the third gen Prelude 4WS steering was bad tooI've never even heard of this being an issue since it was all mechanical. I know the newer versions were electrical and had problems.
I've got a 2014 Civic SI and I'm interested in doing some mods.I'm not planning on doing anything crazy, just want to get some more power.The first and most important thing seems to be the ECU.What ECU should I get for light mods, maybe a turbo kit?Everyone talks about Hondata, is it worth the price?
>>20406042Hondata is worth the price.As to power mods, I would look into swapping to a K20Z3 cylinder head from a 2006-2011 Civic Si.Here's a link with a list of the needed parts, part numbers and prices for them.http://9thcivic.com/forum/threads/k20-head-swap-parts-list-needed.6612/
The 2.0L K20Z3 head flows better and is built to rev higher. Using that, and having it tuned via Hondata, you should be able to rev that K24 to 8,000 RPM< and make close to 240 HP before throwing a supercharger or turbo at it. Some N/A K24/K20 hybrids are making near 280 HP.
just bought one of these boisHopefully I dont have to do a lot of remodeling between this and the turbo manifold
>>20405893Yeah; my CM5 didn't have any problems, but, then again, I made sure it was in top shape because I was making payments on it and didn't want to risk losing it. You all know what happened to it, anyway.
I did it fellas
>>20406443that thing is sweet
Would it be better to get a gsi integra, and then b18c swap it, or get a vtir prelude as a first car.I imagine it would be easier finding a non-cheeched, granny-spec gsi here in Aus then it would be finding a good prelude
>>20405830I'm going to to a 2nd tier school in my state, one step behind UVA and VTech (kicked in yo lol)Transferring to Michigan state school system. Because I can get a part time job, or at least less than 60hrs a week and go to school.The Tldr is fusors. Ion deposition and being competent in high frequency/high voltage/vacuum systems is very related to all the big projects like JET and ITER the stellerators. I think the future of fusion lies in smarter not harder reactors. JET and ITER and an exercise in brute force which I think will work But are dumb.Stellerators are smarter.Small and compact is smarter.I have a 2 stage vacuum system (rotary vane + diffusion) 8" spherical chamber with like 8 ports, and a -30kv supply. So I like cutting bleeding edge experimental stuff. School I was at offers a dual degree physics (applied) plus EE (more on RD side to compliment). But it's just not working out time and money wise. Gonna try something different.Vtecc kicked in[/rant]Also what do I do for deer protection? Light bars and whistles?
>>20406841I'm not getting the impression that you actually know anythingHow far along are you in school?
>>20407297easier just to cross of what I got done alreadySmashing atoms isn't really a super complicated science, and its really well documented. You can look up tables for the cross sections of whatever atom at whatever energy. Its mostly down to an engineering challenge and who's going to get there first. A few grand of ebay stuff and some elbow grease can get you turning out a little bit of helium 4 from deuterium. Not a lot, and not efficiently, but enough to activate some metal foils. JET and ITER will get breakeven fusion, but they really are just throwing a lot of time and money and energy at a problem. They're not really elegant solutions. There's a whole cadre of wacky and maybe workable smaller projects out there too. Fusors are just the cheapest way to get a little fusion on a desktop. I think the returns are something 1000-10000 (iirc like 10-100nW) reactions per second out of ~500W of input power. Pretty pathetic. JET/ITER are 100MW in for 10-100MW out for a few seconds? NIF is glorified weapons research. Trying to figure out how to ignite the fusion part of a hydrogen bomb without the fission part. Lockheed Martin had claimed to have figured out how to make everything really compact, like fit on the back of big rig, but revised estimates are showing its going to be about 10x bigger, but still a lot more efficient than JET/ITER. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lockheed_Martin_Compact_Fusion_ReactorJET and ITER are symptomatic of "too big to fail" like James Webb telescope, which is a good too big to fail. Versus, we've always made tokomaks, we've already spent a lot of money on tokomaks, so lets see it through. https://www.canadianbusiness.com/technology-news/crazy-genius/Some guys in canada are trying something different, but I'm a lot more skeptical about it...But these are avenues which could've been explored before heading down the road of magnetic donuts for a lot less money than ITER is going to cost, but politics or something.
Please help me /hg/. I've been looking for aftermarket parts for a 2014 9th gen civic euro hatch, but can't find shit. It's like this car just doesn't fucking exist. I'm mainly.looking for cosmetic shit - I'm talking with a garage about performance mods.
>>20407401you're able to take e&m and quantum before taking methods?Thats weird.Also old dominion costs 34k a year which is absolutely insaneThats more than what my entire bachelors cost
