8gen Accord TypeS Tourer

Recommended Posts

Thought I'd start this seeing as I've started doing a couple of bits to the dad wagon.

 

so far I've put some eibach springs on, fn2 wheels with 15mm spacers upfront to clear the brakes and 20mm on the back.

spacers aren't needed on the rear but I felt like it needed them as the wheel looked a little lost. 

 

I've changed the tyre size from the standard fn2 size of 225 40 to 225 45 but to help fill the arch and keep it comfy.

 

Its been remapped and I've put the bonnet deflector on.

This weekend I've change the oil and filter along with the fuel filter. 

Also changed the rear disks, pads and sliders. 

 

The accord has a inboard handbrake. I've checked, cleaned and adjusted that. I'm glad I didn't buy new parts for it as the rear shoes had plenty of meat on the. 

 

The rear disks were shot. The photo doesnt really do it justice. The fronts have abit of a lip. So I'll end up doing those at somepoint along with the sliders. May even paint them who knows..

I did get some spacers from tegiwa just for the front to start with but they sh*t themselves. 

As I was tightening them up I heard a pop. So after removing the wheel and checking the spacer you could see one of the studs was sticking out further than the others. 

 

It wont allow me to up load the other photos. Even though the file size on my phone says it's less than 4mb! 

 

Look at the rust on that! And it was new from them, only ordered it a week or two ago.

Bloody hell! I take it you'll be ditching them then! Think the thread must have been buggered if it would only go in so far, or poss the hole hasn't been drilled straight?

Never knew the 8th gen had inboard rears!

Car's looking tip top 8-)

How's the handling with the springs? Are you in standard shocks? 

Where did you get the remap done?

yeah they'll be sent back this week. I've ended up getting some eibach spacers just because I trust the name. so fingers crossed they'll be okay. 

Not all of the accords do have that break set up. I believe all the estates do and some of the saloons. It may just been anything with the 2.4 petrol and 2.2 diesel engine.

But those disks are 305mm on the rear of the accord. Bigger than the uprated fronts on my aerodeck!

cheers, it feels loads better for them but eventually i'd like to get some coilovers for it . Yeah still on the original shocks, once they die I'll look into coilovers  

I wouldnt chuck this about like I would the aerodeck, its a big heavy car and you can feel it.

i tried dervtech first but they wasn't able to do it, something to do with the software they use.

so I ended up going to durham remaps, they had done one of these accords before so I knew they'd be able to do it.
