    My First Car, I'm 15 and this my daily driver CB7, I call Jasmine. I plan on keeping it as a daily driver since its an auto and then getting another car or truck next summer. Now on to my CB7! I bought her for $1150 in "drivable" condition on August 5, 2011. She needed alot of work (i was told by my mechanic AFTER i bought it) but the seller said it just needed AC servicing. But now its my project build so its getting "restored" and done right! Will post progress and updates.

    BIG CHANGES COMING IN EARLY 2012!!! NO PICS ONCE I START! JUST AFTER THE PHASE IS DONE!

    Here is her when i first bought her:

    I keep changing my mind about that actually, haha but I think i'm gonna keep this car for a while and since it's approaching 300,000 miles I think a lower mile tranny will be in order anyways. So I think I will maybe during summer.

    Well you could turbo your current motor if you would like. It would be cheaper this way, however with the current mileage of the motor, I wouldnt recommend running very high psi. Maybe 6-7psi

    Yeah. boosting the F22 is uncommon but will be very fun once your done. The upside to doing an H22 or H23 boosted swap is the DOHC Vtec.. either way to run low boost you will need lower compression pistons and fuel upgrades. Looks good though, welcome to the site.

    It was assumed (by me) that you were going to be boosting this motor in its current state. Of course with proper bottom end building a motor can withstand higher boost levels.

    Also if you plan on running low boost you dont need to have low comp pistons for it to be safe, your motors comp ratio is an already boost friendly 8.8:1 (disclaimer: Not by any means am I endorsing boosting your motor to insane levels of psi in its stock form, Im simple stating that your motor can handle 6-7 psi without any problems)

    Yeah this is just going to be a mild build, try to get maybe 250+ HP out of it. And I plan on doing a compression test soon like late January to mid February. Haha

    I like the paintjob on your valvecover, looks pretty similar to mine. Good luck with your project. :)
