What year is it because I believe the SiR came with the H23 Vtec. It's like the H22 but with more torque down low for easier high gear cruising.

the front lip doesn't match the rest of the kit. i was told it was a Mugen lip. i'll take some better pics of it
yes it was from ebay UK thats where i found it, i did put a post up in the introductions. saying i was from the UK but its disapeared :/
its a 1996, and i'm pretty sure they same with a H22a. its got H22a stamped on the block too. i did hear that there was a h23 vtec model too. but i thought it was in the newer model

yeah you have an SiR lip kit, it's an OEM option that came on the CF2.

ok so a few questions.
i've also got, as you can see in the top of 1 pic, a 1994 2.0i Auto with an F20a. CE1 i think?
i got a friend to jump in the CE1 and go out for a drive to see the difference. and there was none hardly. actually before vtec the 2.0i had the slight pull
i've also got a H22a prelude and the acceleration on that seems in a different league, compared to the CF2
so i think its down on power or something.
I do know that the owner before me killed the gearbox in the CF2 and had it replaced with a prelude autobox. would this cause the issue? are the preludebox gear ratios different?

any help would be great, thanks

Here's the gear ratios for anything that could possibly bolt up.

ANY automatic transmission will be slower than ANY manual transmission.

Hi.
Not been on here for a while, but thought I'd share a few small updates

So the SiR came from japan fitted with a Fujitsubo cat back, unfortunately only made from mild steel on the pipework :( so at the start of the backbox its developed a massive hole
So off I went to Unique Exhausts
Spoke to the guy and told him i wanted it to resemble the old Fujitubo as much as possible

Old backbox off
Image

New one fabbed up and fitted :)

Also Fitted an Akimoto Intake & fitted my red valve cover that used to be on the old lude

Really Really nice! I'm thinking of doing something like that with the 92 I have. My stock works just fine, but is so rusted brown! Either spend time with sandpaper and re-paint...or do what you did. Was that a brand name box or did your guy make it custom for you? And since you don't have a location in your avatar, where did you have this done?

Hey, Sorry I've updated now. I'm from across the pond. England, U.K.
The brand of the box I think used was Powerflow
