2001 Acura CL 5A

I grabbed this for the winter and parkedmy 09 tl sh. Always a wanted one so it worked out perfectly. Looking to do the AV6 tranny on her. I plan to keep it for a few years suggestions and comments welcome.

you park your AWD car for the winter and drive a FWD?

Great colour. If it's your winter beater then just maintain it.

I know... It was hard to park the TL. It's going to be slammed with 20's very soon and I want to try to keep the mileage down. Below is my other toy.

I'm getting to liking the car more and more. I might put springs or coils in it. The body is clean with no rust. Whoever owned it before rust checked the car. I had it rust proofed as well. The weak point is the tranny but I see the newer accord tranny will fix my worries. I'm just trying to get a game plan together. I might turn this into my build thread.

I missed out on a sliver 03 6 speed. I was thinking of doing a 6 swap but that a bit much. I see the AV6 tranny might just be the ticket. I have about 2400 to 2500 in the car. It had 294 Km on her when got it. I had to change the injectors when I bought it. It was mint right now. There is a set of Tein coilovers I might buy. Just to give it a better stance.

Nice car! These are great cruisers. I imagine some Teins would give you a lot better body control. The older SS/Basic kits were a little soft though, IMO.
