I've been searching around the forums for a few days now trying to get some questions answered. I've only come up with more questions. So, i'm gonna pull a newbie move and start a thread asking some basic questions about the accord. I'm a mod over at www.preludepower.com and know a lot about hondas and cars in general, so don't treat me like a retard. I'm asking these questions to get specific answers so I know what direction to head in.
Little bit of history. I have a bone-stock 1989 LX-i Hatchback 5 speed. I have three 3G preludes and a shitload of extra parts lying around for them. I also have a shitload of extra parts for 2nd gen integras.
I've read thread about different conversions you can do on the accord using OEM honda parts.
Is there a dizzy upgrade I can do to the stock a20a3 engine? I've been reading a lot about the 2nd gen prelude dizzy on the carbed accords, but that doesn't help me much. Can I upgrade to a vacuum advanced 2nd gen prelude dizzy? can i upgrade to a 3G electronic dizzy (with an ECU upgrade)?
I have about half a dozen different prelude and integra distributors lying around. I also have about a dozen extra ECUs lying around. I have tons of other parts, too. Alternators, AC compressors, PS pumps, sensors, manifolds, engine internals, etc...
I guess I'm asking you guys to sort of give me a list of those extra parts that i can put on the accord. I'm not looking for huge power gains. I'm just looking for simplification, really. Having all those vacuum lines and secondary butterflies and stuff is starting to drive me crazy.
I'm also interested in upgrading the alternator. I've read the threads about upgrading to the 4th gen accord alternator. That's a start, but i have a pretty beefy stereo setup and my lights dim like crazy. Are there any other, more powerful alternators that you guys have heard about? Aside from a $600 custom alternator, I'm very interested in upgrade the stock one.
Once i get all the OEM upgrades I can, I'll start on the usual mods. I/H/E, rear disc brake conversion, cam, cam gear, b series intake manifold, etc...
Thanks in advance.
