Bump for the newbs! lol
Bump for the newbs! lol
mods please sticky this
1989 Honda Accord LX-i
B18c1 swap since 7/2011
175whp and 132tq
Engine : 2.2l , 2156cc
1994 - 1997 Accord
Engine : 2.3l , 2254cc
1998 - 2002 Accord
Possibly the 1997 - 1999 Acura CL
Commonly referred to "Close Port" or "0-00-0" on E-bay
But the work involves a lot of cutting, the flange should be cut off and replaced with an A20 flange with a decent amount of meat around the ports and the outer primaries need to be bent closer to the center, then the oval on each primary needs to be Squished the other way or cut, rotated 90°, and re welded to match the A20's vertical oval ports (Or filled in the case of Turbo Manifolds). The Secondaries are easier to be cut and bent to add the required 15° tilt.
Then you need to match it to the rest of your exhaust system.
In any case the primaries are a fair bit larger, so you're probably better off with an OBX or Pacesetter unless you have the Intake and head-work to match.
While I would have ran the header, I simply wanted to see what was involved in modifying it in case the question came up, but I had my own 4-1 for daily usage.
I also see Hedman Chikara Headers for the Prelude

Good info thread, saves lots of questions, just try ti link parts to the web shops.
Anyway I pinned it to the top.
Its prttey fnuny how you can raed tihs eintre snetnece with all tehse ellters out of palce...
My Build Thread
I'm going to quote myself from my fuel pump project,in case anyone needs a better fuel pump for a multi carb project etc. These pumps listed are the correct range for most webber as well as a lot of other carbs that work on this car
I was going to add that if you want to change a carb to an underbody pump, I've only found two series of pumps that are in the correct pressure range, and can dry lift fuel out of the tank. one is the facet gold series pumps like I used, the main issue of why I changed the pump, they seem to have stopped making the bosch in tank pump and the only replacements available have been complete junk. After almost seven fuel pump failures, I had had enough of the junk,and I went to an under body style pump. The issue seems to be,the bosch pumps had metal impeller blades, and most replacements have plastic blades, the plastic blades simply disintegrate, I'm assuming the problem has gotten worse with the new blended fuels in the past few years. Above all costs avoid the carter replacment, it seems that it's bigger then the others, and it seems to push the pump sock up against the baffle,when this happens the pump starves for fuel, and fails. I also had the pressure relief valve come apart on one and dump pieces in the tank. It was a lot of fun getting them back
the other is the FR series of pumps from Walbro,they make a series that have the correct pressure range and can also dry lift fuel.
I went through the specs of literally hundreds of pumps over the last several years, and It pretty much came down to two pumps. Low pressure carb pumps just aren't popular anymore.

my 87 accord is fuel injected a20a3 everything i see is speaking on a Carb setup so whats some things you guys suggest to do i already have a intake lol and looking for some cheap dc 421 headers but i can not find strut bars
Did you even read the first post??? SEARCH!!!!! More then half this list is for fi car's. And your not gonna find anything new for them everything is discontinued.
there are a number of build projects here now that are aquiring new parts to run thier obd 1&2 converted cars. New cams, cam gears are available, pistons, hell alot of stuffbut yes suspension & brakes you have to do your research, there are literaly dozrns of ways to do them but I advise watching the trading post here!
What cam gears are you talking about because bisimoto has stopped making them.
there are golden eagle ones floating around from the group buy, I have one ready to go on mine
Updated the thread with some new info and removed most of the links since they were not working anymore. I'll say it again, this is only for performance parts or parts that aid/add to those performance parts. I left out the suspension and brakes cause those don't belong here. Also, this is just a list and nothing else, no cons or pros and it is your job to search out how each will affect your car or how to mod the parts in the "other" sections. Lastly, if you know of a part that isn't listed here or if you see an error please let me know through PM or here.
has anyone included the S&S header? I know they closed up, but there may be a few floating around out there, I know of one member who had a second one. It's the 4-1 full tube header for those who have never seen one.
update please. Also you can add victor over at squad to the list
Good info, even for a newb.
So am I hearing that b series piston will fit in a a20a1? Does anyone know if b20a5 will bolt to my transmission in place of the a20a1? Car is used on 1/3rd mile paved circle track.
Which motor would be best to build for race car? a20a1 or b20a5? Either way it will be carbureted.
In the drivetrain section, I noticed you did not mention anything about transmission upgrades/mods; gears, bearings, synchros, seals, etc. I am having trouble finding information about these things. Most people seem to recommend a gearbox swap, but they don't seem focused on component upgrades. Does this mean they don't exist? Does it mean stock components can already handle racing tolerances?
