<p align="justify"><b>Intro:</b><br>
We took some time to interview Ken, the owner of the 94 Honda Accord which you see before you. Ken’s 94 Honda Accord originally started off as a plain old EXi, although at the present moment, it has been transformed into what you could call a ‘JDM Bling’ vehicle. <br> This EXi began life with a plain old F22 non-vtec and has been upgraded, not in terms of capacity; its still a 2.2, but this time, it’s a H22. The H22 is a DOHC VTEC engine which puts out approximately 190 horses from the factory. It now also breathes a bit better with intake and exhaust modifications.<br>When we asked Ken why he was interested in cars, he replied with ‘cars are our daily lives. Without them, where can we go or how do we transport ourselves from point A to point B??’ He also believes that each persons’ car is different in a way, therefore makes them unique. His thoughts of the modifying scene to be a bit more challenging with people looking at each others rides and saying ‘hey that looks nice, I should do that too, then people copy's idea from each other’, which is true, to a degree.<br>
Ken also likes Honda’s due to the fact that they have respect as being one of the most reliable and respected cars on the road (even though some are rice cookers). Secondly, he believes that Honda’s also spend a lot of time in engineering their cars and creating something which saves fuel as well as having that extra kick when needed at high revs. Ken likes driving in VTEC everyday, because its ‘healthy for it’; but he isn’t a lunatic on the road, he keeps to most of the regulations.<br>
His best race would have been against a S2K, it was silver, stock and got him in first, but Ken didn’t give up and gained a little bit ahead of it in second, he
didn’t win by much but he says ‘hey, my car costs nothing compared to it!’. He also perceives Melbourne’s car scene as being a little quiet at the moment, the Police are cracking down on defects, and it seems that some of the cars are shying away from the hot spots. Although, there are still more unique cars being built and ‘hey Victoria's car scene is getting there’.<br>
The EXi isn’t going to stick with Ken forever, so when he turns 21, his planning on purchasing an NSX and turning it into another ‘JDM’ vehicle. This is also one of his goals in life, having an NSX (turbo), along with a huge house and learning how to drift. From two of his goals, it can be seen that Ken is a bit of a car enthusiast, but anyway, he would like to thank all the Ozhonda Boys and myself for conducting this interview, and writing this article. Below are some of Ken’s thoughts towards his ride and a list of specs.<br> <br>
<u><b>Owners Input:</b></u><br><br><b>What type of car do you have? </b><br> 1994 Honda Accord EXi <br><br><b>What is your favorite single feature or part of the car? </b><br> Ohhh.. the EXi Badge :D<br> <br><b>What made you choose this car and start modifying it? </b><br>Well I wanted something unique, something that isn’t eye catching, or common. Want people to look at it and say “Ohh it’s only an Accord”<br><br> <b>How much power do you estimate your car has?</b><br>Approximately 120kw at the wheels.<br><br><b>How long did it take for you to get your car to this stage?</b><br>Not very long, the car was brought partly done.<br><br><b>What other cars do you own or have owned, and have you significantly modified any of them?</b><br>I owned another Accord of the same generation; it was black and very low.<br><br><b>Is there anything else you plan to add to the car in the future?</b><br>Planning on a few modifications, such as;<br>Recaro Seats<br>DEFI Gauges<br>Roll Cage<br>Teil Coilover System<br>AEM Brake Calipers and Discs<br>
Maybe a turbo or all out N/A<br><br>

Hey ken, how long did ur conversion take?

20-09-2004, 04:39 PM
*bennjamin edit*
IF you have nothing nice to say - dont say anything at all. Constructive comments please - IT would seem , "33monster" that you have signed up purely to have a go at Kens car. Keep it to the PM.

21-09-2004, 12:15 AM
hahah agreed mate....
but he claimed he runs 14.3sec 1/4mile.
Must be good.... "JDM Bling" =P

21-09-2004, 03:01 AM
i'll be down to give u a run Ken?? watta ya say?? "ORIGINAL" JDM.
You got plenty of mods compared to me.. dun think u should have anything to worry bout..

21-09-2004, 03:18 AM
ive seen that 120 at the wheels in action and it was shiet..... thats why all the other previous owners sold it....

read up there again .. clearly does states approximately *Meaning.. Close to.. near*

also.. i am the 3rd owner of this car.. not maybe previous owners..
previous owner to me sold it.. cause he wanted to buy a turbo car (aka WRX - EVO)

He bought it like that, all he did was da "BLING" aka RICE MOBILE
i dont see anything thats chrome or any stickers on my car..
how can it be rice its a stock looking car!!

21-09-2004, 03:22 AM
I think he meant being a "Try Hard" JDM

21-09-2004, 11:57 AM
ohh well.. the world doesnt Spin without try hards :D

.. the car was built in Japan..
engine was built in japan..
Japanese car :D

22-09-2004, 09:54 PM
i dont mean to shit ster but, so wait u beat a s2000? lmaoo and i dont see Bling or JDM aswell, i think the car is yukk, u fuked up a good car, dude u talk shit man i bet u didnt even do anything to the car engine wise if anything maybe made it worse than wat it was...

Hey ken, how long did ur conversion take?

u gonna tell us mate or ignore???? another rice boy and proud of it on the raod!! ahhahaa and TAKING SUM1 elses credit for the car! another gembel! aka pervin lol shame on you boy

22-09-2004, 10:15 PM
Fuk_Rice, grow up a little.

Ken didn't do the conversion himself he bought it with the conversion done. Is it that hard to read? Seems like you signed on here for one reason only judging by your 1 post count.

23-09-2004, 10:09 PM
your contradicting yourself by saying you dont mean to 'shit ster'.... i see no constructive critisim in your post at all.

23-09-2004, 11:29 PM
i cant belive u said that u beat a s2000 wat were u racing a L plater, or a old person? maybe got a engine change [88crx engine non vtec] and converted to auto..lol s2000's r extreamly fast man, am i right? there very quik cars stock standard, i saw 1 race a s14 and it rapped it like nuthing, and s14 go pretty goodd... plus people are saying the previous owners sold the car becoz it was shit... BTW who sprayed ur front bar and bonnet????????????

26-09-2004, 06:42 PM
sorry for this question..im kinda a newbie.. can someone explain which car this engine comes from.. the H22A isert the Prelude VtiR..?

26-09-2004, 08:20 PM
Yupp.....prelude vti-r

29-09-2004, 04:39 PM
Oh god i am chasing this H22a for long!!!!!!!!!!!!!
where did you get it from?!
and how much?!?! with wiring, loom, gearbox?

about half yr ago, i was looking for this engine for my 89 prelude H22a engine swap
but it's too rare to get even from the auction in japan.

would you mind to tell me how many sec for the 0-100? 0-400?

good luck with this~

h22a accord
01-10-2004, 12:55 PM
guys, i did a h22a conversion into my accord myself with the help of an auto electrician friend ( wiring) in my garage.

I got the complete half cut for $3200 from adelaide jap wreckers www.adelaidejap.com.au they are really good guys to deal with, i would recommend them to anyone.

As i said the cut was complete so it came with wiring, loom, ecu , LSD gearbox, drive shafts etc etc etc. Yoy could actually put a battery in it and turn it over or switch on the electronic climate control lolz.

I can tell you that my accord can do 0-100 in a low 6 second time. I have a phone vid of the speedo while doing it. yet to qtr mile it. Hoping for a 14 something.
