Hello! Build thread insidePost Reply
Hey everyone, probably won't post here too much as I usually just watch anime on CR, but here's a link to my ongoing build thread for my '97 Accord Coupe. I usually post an update every few days, and they're usually loaded with all sorts of tech-y information. I know a lot about just about every car on the market, new/old/whatever, and am pretty active on Grassroots Motorsports, Honda-Tech, HondaSociety, CB7Tuner, as well as lurk on all sorts of other car forums.
Anyway, here's a rundown on the car:
icked up this '97 CD7 LX in March 2013, have been DD'ing it/getting it back into shape and autocrossing with the SCCA. PO was a filth monger and didn't take great care of it, and I've done a TON to get the car back into shape. Car looked pretty clean, and aside from the trunklid rust, I *thought* it was very solid. STC-ish focused build for '13 and '14, but not 100% to the extent of the rules and I chose the mods to maintain a decent drive for day to day. Slowly turned into moving towards FSP in '15, and will probably be proceeding into SMF beyond '15 as I hunt for more power and less weight. I'm fairly certain I can get to my target HP/TQ goal without having to do a swap or boosting the car with carefully selected parts. Much more than 200whp/tq for a FWD is overkill and requires big money invested into R-compounds and other supporting modifications.

Nice work !
I have never seen many accords modded out like that. It is exceptionally clean. As a guy who isn't an accord fan, I have to applaud you for giving me the desire to own one.
