Hey guys wuzzup im new to the hybrid forum and im gonna post a mini build thread for the accord.

Here is the accord. Bought for $600 on craigslist dropped it put alip on and fixed the motor then in Blew.


Bought the longblock on the left for $700 then got the swap on the right for $700 lol sould the longblock for $500..Ready to take on the challenge.


Bought the hasport mounts and axles from hasport .


Had to drop the blown single cam out.


A pic of the engine bay while i was prepping it.



--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Ok i really didnt have plans to do the thread but Ive decided to but for now im slacking on pics. Alot of the parts on hybrid racing that are for the civics and stuff fit on this car. The k24 wire harness wont work so you will need a harness from either a rsx or a ep3 civic. The clutch line has to be routed on the opposite side. U should use a line bender i didnt ima see if it works but if not i gotta buy the hybrid clutch line. I got the motor on the mounts ill post the pics soon :D

Daannmmmn! Hey perfect logic on the T/C set up. I've been considering going T/C too and yup you hit on the head with the trim and housing, because the K24's low rev. Turbo makes this motor rediculous. In for the FIRST T/C CDK ever built!:up:

looking good! Cant wait until someone walks in and wants to do this to their accord!
if i was in ny i would walk in for some help and put cash in your pocket but im many states away from ny. I could street tune on my own though but, im gonna dyno a few cities away from mine. So you an AEM specialist? I heard AEM has lots of options compared to KPRO. I guess they both have theyre upsides but it seems there are more hondata tuners out there? So KPRO for the win!
