    Re: MessyHonda's B swap

    ^thank you... well i wanted to build an engine for the car but the gsr engine is strong so im going to take my time with that.
    today I did a half tune up.
    oil change, trans oil change, swap out axels, new fuel filter, change out thermostat, coolant flush, replace upper ball joints.

    Re: MessyHonda's B swap

    Hey Messy, I own a 89 coupe lxi.

    She's got her issues but the body is great, no rot underneath and just a quarter sized patch on the wheel well.

    I'm getting a better job and will now have a lot of extra money to do what I always wanted to do which was supe my accord up. Basically I'm asking how much of a hassle is it finding the b18c1 parts and swapping out my automatic tranny for the gs-r manual do you think? I'm looking to spend somewhere around 2 grand on finishing off my accord, maybe more if I can justify the price haha

    you will be stretching it because just the mounts are 400 bucks. but 2k would be a start.

    Re: MessyHonda's B swap

    Time to rotate tires.



    added purigen so now im running like 98% nitrogen in my tires. let me tell you now the car handles and stops much better. Its also smoother and has better acceleration. Im convinced that nitrogen also improves with gas mileage.

    My road trip back in Jan to LA I did an avg of 26-27mpg going about 85-90mph. On my most recent road trip to LA again It did 29mpg and this time I was racing a BMW e36 328Is(he could not pull on me and I was pulling on him). I hit 130mph a few times and I did avg speed of 95-100mph on hwy 5. almost 350miles to the tank with my pedal to the floor.

    nice day in san mateo

    Re: MessyHonda's B swap

    Damn Messy, Just looking at the pictures and everything is awesome!! I'm thinking about doing even more (lol, seen my facebook?) motor moving around and I'm thinking I may move the b16b into the Coupe and keep it as a smooth DD. Just need mounts (since cutting out my old mounts from the white lude probably isn't going to net kind results) and start working with the car... I guess wiring wise I'm just going to need a Dizzy adapter, 02 wiring, vss wiring, and vtec wiring!
