VEHICLE STORY

When I started driving this car, it was awful.  Gravel trucks could beat me 0-60.  The front end was beat up from the previous owner hitting a deer.  The car was in a state of mechanical disrepair.  It came to a point where I would either have to replace the car or repair it.  Having determined that I couldn't afford to replace it, I decided that I would turn it into a car that I actually like.  It took a lot of work and a lot of money, but I finally got it there. So yeah.  Here's my late 90s inspired late 90s Accord.  It's the cool 90s car that the Accord never was. Inside, it's set up to be a little more modern.  All the lighting is upgraded to SMDs.  And I mean literally every changeable bulb.  I've also installed a Gamecube with an SD Gecko for some extra entertainment.

What's actually wrong with the car?

[]Timothy Markworth

Engine is trashed. Blown head gasket. Bad rings and rear main seal (hence the oil all over the engine bay). I have a JDM F23A sitting right next to the car ready for wrenching, but ugh.

Integrated oil cooler?

[]Timothy Markworth

It's the oil cooler from an H22. It goes between the filter and engine block with a coolant passage providing some extra temperature pull. Not sure how I'll get that part hooked up on an F23A, but for less than $25, I don't care. I'll think of something.

[]Robert Sixto

Ah ok, that's what I was thinking it was. That's a good deal!
