Car still going. Pulled a 500W J&L amp and two 250W 8inch subs and a box out of a junk car and put them in the accord. Fixed my exhaust rattle, as well. Intake is pretty loud because the car idles high. She's got quirks but I love her. This will probably continue to be my car for the foreseeable future.

VTEC pulls hard, transmission is getting a little scratchy at higher rpms. Going to do the paint job in the near future, thinking the Sonic Blue Pearl from the GSR Integras.

I've unfortunately hit the point where I don't have the time for any crazy projects, so it's nice to have a car that on it's own is enough to keep me satisfied. It's going on the 1/4 track in Bradenton next weekend

Contradictory statements LOL
Luckily N/A hondas can usually take a decent amount of abuse before you break something.
Be interested to see the times you post up.

Did some searching. Can't find anything conclusive.

SRS light is on. IIRC it's been on for a while. Like, even before the swap (but I'm not certain)

Does the OBD1 conversion mess with the airbag situation?

(Panels getting installed btw)

The whole rear of the vehicle is finished. The only panel left is the front bumper, but there's still a little buffing that needs done. I got an aftermarket grille that I like a lot, painted it to match, and back-taped it and painted the comb design black. I thought it came out really good.

Incoming photo dump. Not finished, but I did my first wash and wow. I'm shocked at how good it looks.

Finished going around it and cleaning up some dull spots, got the compound out of the jambs and scrubbed it out of the rubbers in the exterior.

Got more of the stuff I used to refinish the plastics today, just didn't have time to use it. Cowl panel and front lip are the final thing besides wheels

Does the motor stay in VTEC during high rev shifts from 1st to 2nd?
Just curious.
Friend had an H22, with I think an H23 transmission and it would fall out of vtec by about 500-1000 rpms when shifting 1st to 2nd, always a small gap before it got back into VTEC.
