We've had a recent upsurge (again) of Accord thefts in the Austin, TX
area. Seems that the "tuner boys" are putting the Accord engines,
particularly the V6, in their Civics. Some of these guys are having
"problems" because they haven't looked at the rest of the drive train.
Even if they drop the whole engine/transmission in, the CV joints have
problems, or they throw the alignment off or the balance.
Oh, if they get pulled over the cops are now popping the hood and
calling in the engine VIN. They have a choice. Roll on the guy they
got the engine from (these guys typically dont' have the smarts to do
the work) or take a GTA charge.
Anybody else seeing this? I heard that LA has had it for several
