    Not really my style, but nice and cleanly done, so props on that for sure. :thumbsup: What's the current engine setup? Suspension?

    Stock f22b1, 5 speed, just a catback exhaust, cold air intake and underdrive pulley. The suspension is great, handles sick and feels real smooth but Im not sure which brands were used.Like I said i just got it so I'm still tryin to get more info on the car myself.

    When I boost it I'm probably gonna toss the front bumper and get something a little more low key

    Greddy and Wings West make some really nice lips for the Accord. You could grab a stock bumper and put one of those on it, so then you're a little more low key but still have a little flair to it. Just something to look into. It doesn't look bad at all like it is now though.

    Looks good otherwise. What are you planning for a turbo setup?

    Still thinking a lot about that but I'm trying to get away with it cheap seeing how I only bought the car to flip and make a profit so I was think going with dsm parts, eclipse manifold and turbo.

    I just have to figure out what I have to do to make the mani fit or if they make an adapter plate of some sort

    and its not that I dont like the front end really but its to low, I bottom out everywhere. Check out the curb at the end of my driveway. It takes skill to get in there without hitting lol

    You can buy a manifold that will bolt up to your head and allow you to use the DSM turbo, just to have to look around a bit for it...

    good score on the car, if you replace all that rice plastic with OEM it will look so much better ;) cant wait to see how it responds to boost;)

    if you are just going to flip it, don't mod it. it will just cost more money out of pocket.

    not a bad car if you are looking to pull some 15 year old girls.

    I couldve swore the 90-93 Accords have 0-0-0-0 and the 93-97 are 0-00-0. Theres an easy way to find out what you have though ;)
