    She looks absolutely mint, and tasteful mod choices too. A big credit to you man.

    There's been a few times I've been close to buying a 4th Generation Prelude, one of the best looking Hondas out there.

    What kind of power are you putting out with the I/H/E mods on the H22A?

    Thanks for the kind words.
    The stock UKDM H22A2 is 185bhp
    Last time I had it dyno'd was last year and it made 203bhp

    That's pretty fair, and with a 5 Speed manual I'm sure she shifts pretty well too :Smile:

    Good to see she's all patched up now. Can't be bad if that was the only thing wrong with her :Smile:

    That was the beginnings of some quite nasty rot right there, good work Mart.

    Another day a Curborough coming up

    So I thought I'd try and loose a bit of weight and tidy up a few things.
    The rear interior was removed for the welding so I removed the stereo and gearstick surround and replaced it as my old one was cracked.
    IMG_9765.

    So while I was at it I removed the stereo and rewired the front speakers direct back to the head unit instead of via the amp.

    IMG_9762.

    Then I removed all the crap that went with the amp now it was no longer connected up.

    IMG_9980.

    Instead of re-fitting the Pre-facelift centre console (sexblocker) I decided to fit my crossover console (less weight :Wink: )

    IMG_9764.

    Then I re-fitted my OMP seat and Takata Harness.

    Curborough Sprint Course Track Day 02/09/14
    Conditions hot & dry.

    Back out for my 2nd time at curborough.
    Wasn't as hot as last time, got a few more runs in too.
    Tyres took a battering, don't think they'll manage another day.

    Nice bit of driving there mate, she sounds fantastic when you let her loose :Smile:

    When you hit "Club Member" the option will appear, just safe guards for new members abusing features. Should be there or all but when I fix your SiR thread :Whistle:

    Nice one @Mart609 , love the car and nice to see it getting used.
    Curborough's just up the road from me, spent many a Sunday afternoon watching the sprint. Will have to get back up there sometime, not sure I should be taking the FR-V round though :-/
