Below is an archival photo of the 2001 J.A.S. ETCC Accord drive line assembly. Destroked H22 with a Xtrac sequential 5 speed. The cylinder heads were rotated 180 degrees so the intake was to the front of the car so the engine could be rotated back. This allowed the engine centerline to be lower in the chassis and improving the handling. These cars were incredibly engineered, rivaling F1 cars of the era.
