Honda Accord Type R
2.2L H22A7 engine (209bhp with Vtec, redline at nearly 8000rpm)
5 speed manual gearbox with factory LSD
Very rare optional leather Recaro interior including door cards and armrests
MOT until 26.07.20 with no advisories
Recommissioned for the last owner in 2018 – Top end engine rebuild including new head, valves, valve seals, timing belt, tensioners and crank pulley.
New valve cover
Front and rear mintex brake pads and drilled and grooved discs
Installed stand-alone power steering cooler
5th gear synchro and clutch replaced by Vtec Direct July 2019
Also replaced at the same time:
Sump (with baffle plate)
Front ARB D bushes
Driveshaft seals, oil cooler and vtec solenoid gasket
Oil and filter
I have also replaced the PAS return pipe, various interior trim parts and the rear 'H' badge.
Bulkhead is rust free and under the car only has surface corrosion.
It has had repairs to rear wheel arches in the past, although they could do with being repainted now to bring it up to the same quality of the rest of the car. Overall the paintwork is very good apart from a few very small areas (I believe it may have been resprayed in the past).
It has also been upgraded with:
S2000 aerial (not currently connected)
HEL braided brake hoses
H&R Lowering springs
Both keys present and working, both with remote fob.
There is a crack in the windscreen, however as my windscreen excess on my policy is high so I have chosen not to replace it as it hasn't spread any further during my ownership.
There is also a very intermittent stuttering for about 1-2 seconds during the warm up phase (only after warmish start) due to an O2 sensor or the decat (or both). Does not affect the way the car drives 99.9% of the time, and I doubt most people would experience it. However as this is RR I'd prefer to be honest!
The current mileage is 196,000 but the work carried out to this car in the last 2 years means it is in better condition that a lot of lower mileage cars. I would highly advise to come and have a look if you are looking for tidy and usable Accord Type R.
Located in Herefordshire but could also be in Bristol during the week.
£2600 - may consider PX for something interesting or usable for autosolos/testing
