Accord Type R LHD

Post by hondaddict » Wed Mar 09, 2016 6:31 pm

Hello everybody!

Here is my beloved CH1, it a car with a sad history and i'm proud of being able to save it after a long fight.
It came home in sad circumstances, a friend of mine asked me to help him replace the engine, but the car won't even run normally... i found a lot of problems on the engine wiring loom, and after months of hard work on the car, searching for electrical problems, my friend decide to sell it for spare... and i buy it.

Now, the car is running but i still have work on it, essentially on the map, it runs with a P75 chipped ECU with Neptune and actually i'm trying to set it to idle correctly :D

Nice one. :clap:

Regarding the wiring problems, we couldn't fix an issue for ages. The car would run nicely, then wouldn't run at all. A new distributor seemed to fix it - for a while. In the end, it seems to have been nothing but an intermittent contact on the 4-pin connector feeding the distributor. The receptacle on the 12V line (black/yellow cable) had opened out a tiny bit.
