hey /hg/. didn't want to start a new thread for this, and I seldom have luck with qtddtot. wouldn't be asking you guys if I wasn't a bit desperate. I have a 2005 accord ex coupe 2.4l, and my car alarm will not shut off. it started going off when a tow truck driver opened it from the inside using the knob instead of the button. it needed to be opened from the inside because the door lock cylinder somehow broke. I have installed a new one (door panel is still off if it matters, but I have tried most of these steps with the door panel's console plugged in) but haven't been able to shut off the alarm. I have tried starting the car, tried disconnecting the battery, tried letting the alarm stop itself after a couple minutes, tried disconnecting every fuse. I have tried turning the plastic retainer that the lock cylinder connects to with my finger manually. I have tried many things. I did eventually manage to shut off the alarm by locking the door from the inside, shutting the door, then unlocking and locking it, but the alarm will go off anytime I try opening the door afterward. my key fob has not worked for a long time, so I eventually gave up troubleshooting and tried to get a new one programmed. the people at the honda dealership (note they had their heads up their asses a bit) said the fob will not program to the lock (it will to the ignition fine) and cannot shut off the alarm. they said it might be a problem with the wiring. I have scoured the internet looking for a way to troubleshoot this type of problem or even just to disable the alarm itself if necessary. any advice? I tried to be as specific as possible but I can provide further info if you're interested in helping me solve this puzzle.

the '90 prelude with 120k miles i've been looking at for a month or two still isn't selling and the price keeps going down (5350€ now, down from 6k)

at what point should I bite the bullet and get it
>>
This is maybe a matter of personal taste but 2014/2015 accord or 2016/2017 accord? I am pretty sure the only big difference is the grill. I think I like the newer styling more but I can't seem to find many good examples of the newer ones. Plenty with the 2.0T though. I actually like the new accords but I kind of wanted to get a coupe
>>
>>24985226
They're basically the same, minus the facelifted interior, wheels, and grille you get on the 2016-2017, but those cars also cost more to get, 2013-2015 cars are much cheaper and they're all 8th gen Accords, which means the coupe is an option.
>>
>>24985239
Which do you guys think looks better honestly? I kinda keep flopping back and forth. I kind of like the styling on the facelift just because the old grill really gives me strong 2000s vibes but I'm thinking I could probably just find a good kit to swap out that grille if it bothered me anyways. And I'm sure I could swap out the headlights if I was so inclined. (that was never a huge dealbreaker to me)
>>
>>24985608
I like the sport wheels of the facelifted 2016-2017, but the front end of the 2013-2015 is better looking, maybe buy you a 2013-2015 and slap some 19 inch sport wheels from a 2016 if you like em enough, I like em.

I want to own something faster, considering selling my clean Prelude Type SH and importing a Skyline GTS-t. I love the Prelude, but I want something with an I6 and fewer miles (138k on ODO right now). Talk me out of it, bros.
>>
>>24985762
I'd stick with the Prelude, it's a lovely big fat GT car like the Skyline is, but at least it was actually sold in America, and it's probably gonna be easier to get parts for it, and it's an SH, a GTS-T is never gonna have the same clout as a GT-R, despite being an awesome inline 6, it just doesn't have the value and meme status.
>>
>>24985782
You'd be surprised on the parts front. The ATTS System is broken, and I have no idea how to fix it, where to get technical diagrams, or where to get parts from. I talked to the local Honda stealership and they had no idea either.

The mechanic picked up my 6 speed CL-S on Monday so I can get it back on the road after 19 months of sitting. Added it back to my insurance today and I'll probably hit the RMV next week. I drove by the shop and the thing's still sitting on the flatbed, so I wasn't too jazzed about that. Looking forward to getting back behind the wheel of it again and maybe getting back on the collage too.

Cheers lads. Just wanted smoke affirmation on my choices. Here's another question for you all though while we are at it.

How is the interior, sound, and infotainment on the 9th gen? I am honestly half way torn between getting a 10th gen or a 9th gen still.
10th gen pros to me thus far
>more HP and more torque
>more fuel efficient
>better interior and sound system, infotainment is better
Cons
>not NA
>Larger
>only in a sedan
>more expensive by a pretty pricey ticket, now has a manual tax since they are rare
While the 9th gen
>NA,almost as powerful
>coupe
>lower cost
>peobably a bit more nimble

I'm basically torn between a fun car and a comfortable car. So I'm kinda curious how the 9th gen interior stacks up. It seems pretty nice to me to be fair so maybe it's not as big of an improvement as people say.
>>
>>24986140
The 9th gen Accord is what an Accord should be, it's large inside, quiet, and tightly put together I never messed with the infotainment apart from the digital climate control, which was nice, playing the radio, and looking through the backup camera because you can't see out the back because the rear deck is so tall due to modern car

It's a nice place to spend time, my uncle never made trips to Utah in his G35 until he got his 9th gen Accord, speaks to the comfort of a car like that. It's a nice place to spend time, should consider it if you want the last of the naturally aspirated Accords, or to simply save money.
>>
>>24986164
Kek yeah that's about all I care to do either. I am coming up on 30 year old boomer territory and I hate technology but I can't see shit out of my mom's modern civic without a backup cam.

Appreciate the response lad.
>>
>>24986186
No problem Anon, nothing wrong with sliding into an Accord as you go up in age, at least you're not driving a crossover or a minivan.
>>
>>24986140
It sounds like you are comparing the "fast" trims (9th gen V6 manual vs 10th gen 2.0T manual) in which case it really comes down to if you want a N/A V6 or turbo inline 4. The 10th gen will have a bit more interior refinement and more advanced tech, but the 9th gen is still a very modern and comfortable car. Both cars are deceptively quick and take mods well (both for handling and power). Personally I think the V6 is a more exciting engine, it has "old school" VTEC with a very noticeable change-over and it sounds great at high rpm even totally stock. It's also extremely reliable because it's decades old tech that Honda has refined and put in millions of cars. The 10th gen however is more practical as a sedan, it's actually a little lighter than the 9th gen even though it's bigger, and it will make more power with less work because it's a factory turbo.

>>
>>24985762
You'll regret selling the Prelude. They're still going up in value. >>24985782 is correct, and on top of that, Skyline prices are redic now, and to find one that hasn't been beat to shit and patched up and painted, is going to cost you way more than it's worth. Best value right now are the various Toyota sedans that came with various versions of the JZ engines. While they're automatic, most of them have been kept well. The top of the line ones don't have leather either, so you don't have to worry about a beat up interior. They use some expensive wool that is cool and classy.
>>24985829

A 90s honda. The K24 makes a ton more power than the B, all over the curve, due to VTC. Much better to drive than the B, even stock.

Don't think it will fit in that chassis without a lot of work.

>>24989333
Meant to say, price on a Skyline wouldnt be as big of a deal. Just started a new career, and need to (((build credit))) so I figured out a car loan wouldn't be a bad idea, and if I could get 10k for the Prelude in addition to that it leaves me a little breathing room on the price of a GTS-t. I don't want a GTR.
>>
>>24989343
GTS-T models were abused anon. A clean one won't be cheap, and you won't know how much repair work was done on the body until you strip it down to repaint.

bonus points if you can see the massive panel gap in that first pic.
>>
>>24993420
A little excess panel gap wouldn't bother me on that thing, it comes from an era where all the Jap cars fell apart from rust, the last time I saw a 2nd gen Accord like that in California was in 2018, and it was clearly a surviving car that someone had polished and looked after.

being one who daily drives this its in very good condition. there is only one rust spot and that is by the rear quarter panel. a very common spot for this generation.

>>
>>24990870
Depends on budget, chassis, and what you want out of it. If you don't have an S300, get one, and have it tuned. It will get you the power being left on the table, and you won't have to worry about caps leaking in the future.
>>
>>24993457
There is more rust inside the 'frame' rails. I have a mint chassis from the late 80s that's going through a 30k refresh. No dirt or rust visible, but when taking all of the plastics off, we found some (a very tiny amount we removed) rust in the passenger side door sill area. Car was rarely used in the wet, and never in snow or in an enviroment that freezes or salts roads. This is just from condensation build up due to the AC, in a spot that was rarely used (single owner, rarely ever any passengers).
>>
>>24993874
Honda is very good at adapting to cuck and emission standards, better than any manufacturer, imagine when every engine globally can't be any bigger than 1.5L and the K24 truly becomes a big block.

oh shit, i didn't even know it was just one piece, i thought it was just on the left side for some reason and only now did i notice the right side was just hiding behind the other stuff in front of it. the left side almost looks like it's just one short piece of metal bolted to the firewall, what an odd strut bar design. Still seems better than the ebay specials that have a bolt securing the bar to the mount though, those look like they'd have more movement.

Also subjective, and an OEM Type-R Integra from the 90s (basically what you're aiming for) isn't fast at all compared to anything modern. It will be faster than stock, and fun to drive, but don't get your expectations up too high, because you'll be bummed out.

What's the condition of the CRX, and what are your plans for that?

i meant max out what i have currently, cast rods/pistons via using cams. and quick is just more than what it is now.

the crx is pretty okay, no rust, the interior is roached. the engine is running good but i need to tune the weber it’s got, i have no interest honestly.
i either wanna go all motor k(some people have done them) or i was going to do a small turbo b series. maybe 7-11psi. i wanna gut it and use it for just 1/4mi. i’d be more worried about the torsion bar suspension not being able to support the extra weight honestly.

Finally got it back. Managed to get it registered yesterday so I took it for the first drive today. The clutch grabs so much harder and more consistently now that I deleted the check valve. Need to put my head unit back in it, polish the headlights, put the battery tie down back on and give it a good wash and interior cleaning. Pretty sure I'm going to take it to work tomorrow. Just hoping something doesn't break on the ~40min commute.

"The anti-theft system on Your 2005 Honda Accord helps to prevent unauthorized starting of the vehicle. But, if You need to change Your battery, You will need to disable the alarm. If You forget to do this it will go off and You'll need to reset the system. Once the alarm goes off, You need to know how to shut it off, and then how to reset the anti-theft system.All You need for this is Your ignition key. Insert the ignition key in the Accord's driver-side door lock. Turn the key to the unlock position. Turn the key to the lock position. Finally turn the key back to the unlock position and You are done. The alarm should now be disabled."

has anybody plopped their butt in a 9th gen and a 10th gen and is able to comment on the interior? I'm kinda flopping back and forth between getting a 10th gen and a 9th gen. 9th seems like a lot more fun (V6, coupe) but other than that, seems like the 10th with the 2.0T is a lot more "car" for your money, and seems like it's a lot more comfortable. But maybe it's not really as big of a change as shill articles make it out to be

I'm incel and never go outside so I haven't really been by any dealer.
>>
>>25022742
I'm guessing you mean Accord 9th/10th gen. 10th gen 2.0T is nice to swing around in. Surprisingly quick too. I would see myself DD'ing it but I settled for the new gen Civic EX and all the forthcoming problems that come with it.
>>
>>25022759
Yeah sorry can't believe I didn't write "Accord." both seem like pretty splendid cars for what they are. It's gonna be my DD. I find myself drawn to the V6 because it makes my cock hard and I've always had a hard on for coupes (my mom drives an 07 Civic SI and it's pretty great).

My condolences on the new civic EX, but look at it this way -- if Honda is having this many problems, then the other guys are having tenfold as many problems.
>>
>>25022763
V6 sounds great. Just go with your gut.

Eh, we'll see how the Civic holds up.

Would be nice if these things in manual weren't unobtainium. Can't believe I'm gonna have to chuck mid 20k at one in decent condition. Used car prices are so fucked
>>
>>25022742
>>25022763
They are both perfectly practical and comfortable cars to daily drive. If you give up the V6 for something minor like a fancier touch screen or slightly quieter interior I think you will regret it. If you still aren't sure though this should provide a good comparison:

They really nailed the interior amenities I think this go around for the price. I don't know what Acura's are like these days but that's nicer than almost any Acura I've been in (I haven't been in an Acura since the early 2010s though so)

>>25024310
If you get a 16-17 9th gen I dont think the 10th really has any additional features over it and it just comes down to design and feels. I sat in a 10th gen briefly when they first came out and it felt just as plasticy as my 8th gen. Didnt bother to drive it but I bought the 21 tlx last March sans awd because I'm gay and the interior is leagues beyond any Accord in existence . I'm assuming they probably drive similarly atleast from initial launch and I can tell you it's torque steer out the ass anytime you want to turn from a dead stop. I prefer driving my 8th gen V6 sometimes because it's just so much easier
>>
>>25026353
>I bought the 21 tlx last March sans awd because I'm gay
There's absolutely nothing gay about a big Marysville Honda with a double wishbone suspension on there, I think the man needs to buy a 9th gen if the J35 is something he wants.

>>
>>25029668
Yeah idk where this meme came from that they're great handlers
>>
>>25030391
It's a great handler relative to what it is and the reliability of it, it's not gonna be some little Integra GS-R that handles really well but sucks ass on the highway because the gearing is so short, Accord is big torque and long gears with great comfort in a car that has a very well made interior that's sound deadened to hell.
>>
>>25030378
why? i care about being able to take a turn, not go fast in a straight line.
>>
>>25030492
Yea I think you need to trade it for one of those 1996-2000 EJ6 coupes or EJ8 sedan Civics or a 1994 to 2001 Acura Integra, cause the Accord isn't a touge machine, I lightly use it for that but doesn't like to be tossed around, I jokingly call them Marysville muscle cars because they just go straight down the road really nice, fast, and comfortably like an old American car from the 60s and 70s.
>>
>>25030391
stock handling is great relative to a camry or taurus from the same era, but for actually good handling you will need sway bars and struts/springs or coilovers
>>
>>25030545
I forgot to mention CM with coils , wheels low profile enough to put a summer tire on, and an Acura TL Type-S sway bar put on the rear multilink suspension is kind of a beast, even 3600 lb pigfat cars like G coupes can go pretty damn fast around corners with 255 section tires.

I wouldn't recommend going nuts with it, just enjoy the thing as an Accord, and you'll be much happier or get something else.
>>
>>25030431
>relative to what it is
a mid sized sedan? competitors are camry, passat, fusion, maxima? maybe it handles decently in it's class but the passat easily outclasses it in every way besides reliability in my personal experience
>>
>>25030532
yeah i was hoping to find an Integra but i live in an area with a LOT of mexicans so there are no clean title integras or RSXs within 300 miles of me
>>
>>25030562
>a mid sized sedan
Yes, the CM Accord was an absolute beast in its heyday, especially on the 4 cylinder, the Camry had a timing belt, a normal everyday economical McPherson strut suspension on the front, and a 4 speed automatic for 2002, and then for 2003, Honda drops their new Accord, with timing chain and ignition coils on a 4 cylinder for the first time for them, a 5-speed automatic transmission, and it retained a double wishbone suspension on the front end with a stabilizer bar when not many in the midsize segment would do it.

>>25030575
The lack of clean Integras is why people often find themselves buying an Accord as a last resort, but I don't think it's a bad thing, they ride like classic Hondas from back in the day, while being modern enough to be daily driven.
>>
>>25030592
i bought an accord because i couldn't find an Integra and it's honestly the least enjoyable car I've owned in the past 8 months. in the past 8 months I've owned a: scion tc, honda odyssey, mazda 3, g35, and a corolla. hopefully my accords double wishbone will show it's strengths when i add a sway bar, but my hope is honestly fading. a Honda Odyssey was more fun to drive.

This, 1st gear on Hondas is so damn short to get the car rolling, and then 2nd gear onward is much much longer, I have an auto and you can feel it going into 2nd pretty hard, and then 2nd-5th is butter because the ratios are closer.

I'm pretty sure the only options for 9th gen 6-6 are black, gray, and red. IMO red is the best looking of those (but I'm biased because mine is red). The funny thing with red is that it makes it sort of a reverse sleeper. Normies see a red coupe and assume it's fast (they are actually right) but most car enthusiasts see another Accord and assume it's just a commuter car.

>>25038335
Frankly the only let down is they are done with the manual transmission. I get it -- honestly the 10AT is just a superior transmission. But it still saddens me to see because it was the best luxury manual car you could buy on the market for that price I think. I really can't think of any competitors because your next stop is expensive RWD BMWs
>>
>>25039909
are you implying that the k series platform is unreliable all they have to do is design all around type engine again without turbo cheating
>>
>>25040146
The K series is reliable, but in the K series Accord, the thing shuts off half the valves when it's not in "vtec" below 2400rpm, you're basically running a 12v 4 cylinder engine at cruise speed, which is great, and the compression ratio was really low so you can load up your giant 17.1 gallon fuel tank with cheap ass

This is what Accord people want, and it sucks that Honda for the life of them can't make another Integra GS-R due to emissions, but I like the ultra low revving 192HP Accords, very zippy.

first of all im gonna swap the engine you talked about right now in to my eg and make it high compression and so on but the thing is what im saying is they should make a new engine NA with the same capabilities on all of them instead the eco and the racing one I don't see why they don't make it so every cylinder head comes with 3 stage vtec
>>
>>25041362
I would've loved them to keep making K24 forever, but they just can't, the expectations of emissions and fuel economy are so much higher than in late 2002 when the K24 Accords first hit the street, that even those things are gas guzzlers relative to their power output, which is a shame because those slow ass 160HP K24s are obscenely reliable due to how understressed the engine is.

It wouldn't be strong enough to push a 3200lb+ Accord down the road and the original Civics were tin cans with no features, the milage an L15B engine achieves with the size of the Honda Civics and Accords is absolutely incredible, it is a proper K24 replacement, yes they don't rev, but they make a dumb amount of torque at a low rpm and the tuning potential is outrageous because the engine was made to handle boost right out yty4g
of the box.

>>25043109
that's not what I meant what I did meant is using the same cylinder head design from CVCC in todays engine the L15B is a good engine but it lacks potential

>>25043109
here for example
Turbocharged L15B/L15C engines that feature VTC system have Variable Timing Control (VTC) on both the intake and exhaust side,[16][17] it was advertised as VTEC Turbo in Australia and some Asian markets, despite not featuring an actual Variable Valve Lift system like conventional VTEC engines.)[18]
Turbocharged L15B/L15C engines that feature VTEC system have Variable Timing Control (VTC) on both the intake and exhaust side but Variable Valve Lift (VVL) only on the exhaust side.[19] one comes without the other that's why they are shit 3 stage vtec and VTC with 3 lobes on in and ex with pre chamber combustion would achieve incredible results

I would try to get a used 5MT shipped to you and have some shop drop the subframe and bolt it in, because that's like $637 American dollars for a running CM5 Accord with 5 working foward gears, even a $5000 CM5 Accord needs things.

>>
>>25045852
not only that but it also comes with a k24

>>25046003
Exactly, the running K24 is worth the $637 American by itself, and then you've got the whole rest of the car that has value and you can sell the parts off of.

KK bros, tell me how fucked I am.
Have a 1997 CR-V, transmission blew, got a replacement.

Got the motor and trans pulled. Put the motor on a stand and started doing some work on it while it was out (timing belt, hard to reach seals, etc). Had to wrap it up in a tarp and leave it on the stand for a weekend.

Elderly In-Law comes along and removes the tie downs from the tarp, shit blows over and some snow got on the motor. I think water got into the cylinders maybe. Spark plugs were removed.

When I turn the motor over by hand I hear a metallic noise. I don't know if its from lack of oil lubrication since it has been out of the car. I've never rebuilt a motor. I don't really want to learn how. But will it be necessary? I guess if I have to.

get the manual the k24 has potential and the manual is more reliable maybe upgrade the engine a bit aswell if you want more power

anyone else with a 2015+ honda? owned this one for several months now, coming from a 2011 accord coupe v6/at. at first i thought these were dogshit with mcpherson struts, then i started checking them out solely for the adaptive cruise, hung around for the fantastic motor/transmission combo and the very comfy interior.

what do you think of the interior? i'm really considering a 2022 type r if the interior is comfy. the accord is very nice for its price, but i'll trade some fun for some lux.
>>
>>25049995
For me the interior is great because I came from a base model Hyundai Kona, and before that a 05 EX. I love the interior for how simplistic it is.

I have the cloth seats but the fact it has dials and buttons for comfort/climate controls is great. Leather wrapped shifter and steering wheel is nice.

Your mileage may vary. One thing I absolutely love is that even though the EX comes with the older 7-inch touchscreen, I like using the "Select" knob to reduce the amount of fingerprints on the screen, and I only use the infotainment system for BT audio anyway.

I know we covet the double wishbone suspension, but the Accord is always a nice driving car no matter what, macpherson strut up front with multi link in the back is still fully independent and it's gonna drive better than some shitty compact car with a torsion beam in the back.

Newer Accords are absolutely worth the money, it's the only new car worth buying as a daily imo.

Make sure you push it a bit if the dealer will let you go by yourself on the test drive. If not, whatever. Always wanted to get a Fit before they discontinued the car.

Yeah dealer's don't typically sell nice examples of cars at a premium, which can be worth it if you don't want a car from the auction that is cheap, but might need struts, etc, with the certified pre-owned, you just buy, and drive for a long time without needing anything.

/o/: I have a '99, Integra, LS, Auto, and non-vtec b18. Car has a ghost issue... randomly as I am driving it shuts off on me --the dash lights do not go out --and when I try to start it, it cranks but does not start. So I park it and let it cool for few hours what not, and it starts right back up and I can drive it for a few miles [Or, even more!] until it dies... I have changed the following:
1. New Distributor; complete with cap, rotor, igniter, and etc.
2. New Main Relay
3. It was throwing a bad cat code, so I took it apart and saw that it was flaking and powdery --was very clogged. So I straight-piped it. But, I do have an extra cat that I picked-up from a local junkyard years ago and it is perfect fit just have not changed it yet.
At this point I do not know what to do... I have spark and current on all cylinder banks, No other engine errors codes... the spark plugs look clean and fresh. Car has about 180k on it. I bought when I was a freshman in college 10 years ago and I kept up with all maintenance. I should also note that I changed the timing belt last year. Maybe the timing is off a tooth? Please, anyone have an advice what to do? Could it be fuel issue? I have spare fuel injectors as well as fuel pressure regulator I am going to change those tomorrow...

I don't browse /o/ or know much about cars.

I'm considering selling my current car (2013 Jetta, Automatic, 70K Miles) in favor of getting one that's more fuel efficient and cheaper to maintain.
I'm a delivery driver and I put about 15,000 to 20,000 miles a year on my Jetta currently.
Would the Honda Civic or Honda Fit be a good choice for what I'm looking for?
>>
>>25053992
They're actually both obscenely reliable, and the Civic is nicer inside, it's bigger, has a fully independent suspension if you care about handling better, but if you don't care about that and want your Honda as cheap as possible to operate when it comes to fuel and maintenance and be a dead on reliable workhorse vehicle, the Fit is what you want, but do keep in mind that the Fit will feel like a tier below the Jetta, it's just going to be, they're different classes of vehicle, which goes back to the Civic being larger, and being nicer on the interior.

I would test drive them both, and see what car you would prefer to live in day in day out and buy that.

I think the sedans look great and they have nice interiors. big aftermarket too.

lower redline than the 8th gen but makes more hp and torque stock, the k20z3 out of the 8th gen will make more power with simple mods. 9th gen tranny is a bit better and it gets better gas mileage. fun to drive cars I personally prefer 8th gens but cant go wrong with the 9th gen either.

Im going to replace my clutch soon and the only mechanical thing left to restore is the corroded heat shield, should I bother replacing it or just take it off and leave it?

After that what are the must have mods, I already have coilovers, braided brake lines and uprated discs/pads, Id like to leave it N/A so no turbos, are intakes and tunes worth the money? Thatll cost me around 700 bong coins.
>>
Haha fuel injectors go tiktiktiktiktiktiktiktiktiktiktiktiktiktiktiktik
>>
>>25055116
what the fuck kind of euro shit is that? which engine?
>>
>>25055116
assuming thats an ep3, flashpro getting rid of the rev hang alone is worth the 700 bucks, and intake, header, and exhaust will net you an additional ~30hp, its up to you if thats worth it
>>
>>24984621
offer him 4500
>>
>>25055260
I didnt choose to live in this hellhole anon, no need to add insult to injury

>>25055283
its an FN2 non-LSD model, K20Z4 engine, Ill look into intake/exhaust tuning but for the prices for a 30hp increase I might just go and fix the paint (some stone chipping on the bonnet) and windscreen seal rust before going for performance.
>>
>>25055299
im not sure about the z4 specifically but the k20z3 can do about +40whp with the proper tune and I/H/E you really notice it and the car will be a lot more fun to drive. but its also decently expensive. You can do all sorts of shit like k24 block and cams etc but you're really spending money now and its cheaper to just turbo it if you want lots of power.

personally I do think the bolt ons are worth it but its up to you.
>>
>>25055340
afaik the z4 has better cams, heads and a lower VTEC crossover (5400rpm vs 5800 in the z3), and has the RSP intake manifold vs the RBC IM in the z3 which apparently is slightly better but its hard to come across info on this. Engine makes 201hp stock vs 197 in the z3.

Ill ask around and have a look at my options thanks, I dont want to go turbo route as N/A was the selling point for me on this car, my next car will probably be a turbo engine stock anyway.

Handling wise do you think there are any worthwhile mods to do other than what Ive done already? I probably wont end up LSD swapping it as its far too expensive, ive also done FRS geometry with camber bolts added, perhaps at some point Ill do a big brake kit conversion.
>>
>>25055417
well if you get it tuned stock vtec crossover doesnt matter mines set at 4300 and my redline is 8500.

having an LSD is great though and can really change how your car handles in corners. what kind of coilovers? and rear sway bar definitely. then poly bushings. get rear camber arms too if you havent already. im not sure about yours but the TSX front brakes is a good upgrade for an 8th gen si here in the states.

also turbo + high reving vtec is awesome
>>
>>25055467
it had HKS hipermax S coilovers fitted when I bought it [spoiler]the dealer had no idea how expensive they were so I actually used it as a point to get a lower price kek[/spoiler]

Ill have a look at rear sway bars, they dont look too expensive on first look. Poly bushings are actually something I was recommended before and are relatively cheap so I think thatll definitely be my next handling mod. Ive been eyeing a set of Brembo 4 pots but seeing as I had to replace the existing discs and calipers with OEM spec ill probably do that last, get some use out of these first.

LSD seems like a great idea but its just really expensive over here, ill consider it if I have a significant inflow of cash
>>
>>25055116
I'm curious, euro anon, doesn't that touchscreen set up interfere with the heat/AC from blasting on your face?
>>
>>25055658
I had to set the vents to the upmost and outward facing positions to avoid the screen entirely, feel a little less of the blow on my face but heats the car ambient temperature just fine, plus theres another vent directly to the right of the steering wheel which I can still point directly at me so its a very small difference in exchange for the funcionality of in-dash navigation and a sizeable screen for the rear cam I installed, worth it imo. Especially since rear visibility is awful in this car and the shades I put in means parallel parking at night is a total gamble whether I tap the car behind me or not without the cam.

Unrelated question for the general and non-honda specific, but I got a pair of new aluminium license plates for christmas, any advice on how to fit them? I could screw them in like the current pair I have but Ive seen cars with screwless fittings and I think they look better, I assume they use sticky pads and/or magnets but I have no idea how reliable they are, would suck to pull up one day and realise one of my plates fell off during a spirited drive
>>
>>25055481
nice. wheels and tires yet?

the big brake kits are really only worth it if you do lots of track driving and brake fade is a real issue. theyre expensive and if you just drive your car to work everyday and on the weekends you take it for a spirited drive I dont think its worth it. but if youre doing it for looks more power to you lol

id assume youd have a shop do the work too?

>>25055986
I have black rubber frames that wrap around the license plate they work good.
>>
>>25056065
I do plan to track it when I have another pair of wheels to swap out, also I still feel even after putting in braided lines that there isnt enough bite when coming to a hard stop.

I changed all 4 tires when I got it as the ones I got the car with were starting to rot, put on pilotsport 4s all round.

Currently has the standard CTR 18 inch alloys and they are in good condition, I thought about buying a set of scuffed 19 inch rage alloys and restoring them myself but I hear they make the ride unbearably harsh, might still do it at some point to have a set of track wheels so Im not changing my daily tires too often.

and yeah I found a good Honda specialist about 45mins from me, they build track cars and race them also. I try to do as much myself but some things I dont have the space or tools to do so work like clutch, geometry and tires I get them to sort out, I go to a local cowboy garage to do roadworthy tests because they pass me on whatever as long as I pay cash, and the honda dealership for major servicing for dem stamps.

Update on the steering rack swap. It still wobbled real bad after the swap but I found out my passenger axle was binding up real bad at the hub. I had trouble just flexing it by hand after removing it. Tossed in a spare I had and no more shakes. Took it to Firestone for an alignment because I remembered I bought lifetime alignments for it way back in 2014 or 2015. Drives like a dream now. Didn't take long either since it was Monday afternoon. I even walked to a bar for a few little drinks while I waited since it was downtown.

Given enough time, prices will get better, but V6 Accords aren't mad anymore, Accord LX with an Automatic will always exist, so if you really really want an Accord coupe with a V6 in manual, you have to get it, maintain it and keep it looking nice as possible, because you will have someone that doesn't exist anymore.
