Looking at buying a Honda Post here and we'll tell you our elitist opinionsNeed help identifying a chassis>http://www.superstreetonline.com/how-to/chassis-suspension/1312-honda-chassis-code-checklist/Last Thread>>23309611
Why didn't honda just use port or dual injection on the L15? Direct injection is really fucking shit up on those. I get its nit a big issue, but they easily could have avoided it
>>23376963Should I get a Prelude?
>>23377006Big Honda GT coupes are cool.
yay someone made a new thread>>23376981the new NSX is cool but I like the 90's one more
I don’t have much to contribute here. Not a Honda guy. But here’s one i took a photo of recently
>>23377077I wish they still made 3-door hatchback Civics
why is it impossible to find an un-riced 90's civic?
>>23377164I blame Honda for not providing the Civic Type R to the North American market until recently. people tried to make their own Type R's. also the Fast and Furious movies.
>you will never have a car with a built-in scooter
>>23377204And that makes me sad
>>23377204Wrong nigger, I carry a Z50 in my W123 because walking is for poor people
noob plebian auto Civic owner from last thread here.how do I get VTEC to kick in? I wanna hear what it sounds like.is it even possible to hit that RPM range with an automatic transmission?
>>23377234how fast can that scooter go?

facebook./marketplace/item/397653221463548/How bad of an idea is this?
>>23377555that link is broken for me, Anon.
>>23377566You gotta put the com in
>>23377593ah, my bad. got it.it's a del Sol? why did they only take a pic of the front? is there more pictures available?
>>23377694looks nice. obviously the carbon hood, rims, and wing are aftermarket, looks like rear bumper aftermarket too? and the paint must have been resprayed.you want to buy it? $1,800?mileage seems low for a 1993 car.... idk Anon. it's up to you. I'd test drive it first.
>tfw almost got a black 1992 del Sol as my first car, but it had a lot of rust, and I play drums and couldn't fit my bass drum into a 2seater, so I went with a 1989 Buick Century sedan
>>23377694would be based without the spoiler.
>>23377751yeah it looks a bit riced, and I bet my left nut that the paint is not original
It's my birthday, what do I get for my accord?modulo/a-spec front lip4tl-r hid projectorsor keep saving for some deeper 5 spokes
about to pick up this rust free 91' prelude si for $800. head gaskets blown though but it's only $50 to get it machined.
>>23377241Sup Australia, you've got the R18, which hits vtec around 3800 rpm iirc. If you want it louder and to hear it more, get a cold air intake. Just know you won't get any extra power from it, but you'll be able to hear vtec.Tho theres also this in regards to the R18>i-VTEC on the R18A does not merge two torque/power curves together. Rather it switches the R18A engine between two entirely different modes, a normal 'power' mode and a fully docile 'economy' mode. Furthermore, when and whether to switch is not determined by simple parameters like engine rpm alone but rather by a combination of parameters, most importantly parameters used by the ECU to decide if it should 'open' VTEC or not. So the 'i' in i-VTEC actually stands for 'intelligent' meaning a new generation of SOHC-VTEC which responds to actual road and running conditions, rather than the traditional one which works more or less mainly on engine rpms alone. VTEC on the R18A does not always engage - if the proper conditions are not reached, the engine might never enage VTEC at allSo im probably wrong. Either way, a fold air intake and you'll hear it
>>23381395Did some more research, and yeah I was mistaken. The R18 vtec works differently to what we're used to and what we mean when we "hit vtec." Its backwards. You're in vtec from 1500-3500 rpm, and then get out of it past that. So what you're trying to do is hit OUT of vtec. And yes, a automatic will do it just fine
>>23381423>see this? alright? old man gave me that when I was in grade 7. seen a lot of action. 1.8 liter. VTEC, always on.
>brushing the snow off my Civic this morning>notice the plastic piece that covers the hole where fog lights would go is missing on the driver's sidereeeee
Got a 2001 accord with a 5 spd manual. Pretty sweet car. Only issue is that the cd player ate my CD and won't give it back :O
>>23383887Accords always fuck up with the stereo in some way, luckily the 6th gen Accord has a standard slot for you local audio place to throw that junk away put in something decent.
>>23382978how about this one>b16b eg hatch>6kfacebook/marketplace/item/370920460955312/
>>23384613that one looks nicer than the other one
>>23381479here is what I'm talking about.I'm gonna go to the dealership on Monday and see if they can fix it for free/cheap since I just bought the car.
>>23385579for reference here is what the other non-broken side looks like.how hard is this to fix? (or how expensive, if the dealer doesn't wanna play ball)>also how the FUCK do I get my pics to stop being upside down?
>>23385579also I'm 99.999% sure it was like this when I bought it. I haven't hit anything. wish I would have noticed it before I signed the paperwork. other than that I love the car
Half my shitbox fleet is now 30
>>23385753why does Honda not make the Civic in 3 door hatchback anymore?
>>23385770Because not enough people would buy it. And in the US they just cancelled the 2-door coupe.
>>23385807that's a shame>tfw the new Type R is a 5 door station wagon
>>23385770Would absolutely purchase if they did. Before I bought this piece of discontinued goods, I about ordered a 3 door GTI
>>23385837yeah, I don't need rear doors or full size rear seats, I'd rather just have the hatch to put big stuff in.
>>23385855Everything is a fucking sedan now, I hate. Even the hatches are overly massive.>3000+ pounds for a Civic
i want one of these..why do they all have to be beat to shit on cl/fb ?
>>23385894I find more manual TSXs are usually in better shape than the autos.
>>23385877can I come hang out in your garage?
>>23385924I'm out of here in a month, but stop by and have a beer lol
>>23385934>>23385936you move a lot?
>>23385943I've been here for four years, so not too often. I'll probably be in NC for the same amount of time
>>23385952are you in Iowa or Vermont lol I'm confuse
>>23385990VermontI don't fuck with state inspections up here.
>>23386008I've never lived in a state where you had to have the jannys inspect your vehicle
>>23386032It's the worst. The state failed this thing for a cracked piece of the tail light lens which is under a patch on the drivers side. $80 pass or fail, it's a joke.I'll hang on to the Iowa plates forever
>>23386049>I'll hang on to the Iowa plates foreverbased
>>23385579>>23385588anyone?https://www.carparts.com/fog-light-cover/honda/civic/2012it's like 20 bucks for a replacement if the dealer doesn't want to hook me up, how hard would it be to install myself? can I do it with a screwdriver?
imagine being a vehicle inspection/smog janny
>BuckeyeThat's the motherfuckin Marysville flag, boi
>>23385837Sexy <3 <3
what are your guys' thoughts on the new shitbox? Its a 2006. 4 banger manual. 92k on it bought it for 4k.
>>23387266no way you bought an 06 accord with 96k miles for only 4k.. those go for $6k easily
>>23387266>Manual K24 sedan >that mileage>4KThis is fuckin nice.>>23387275My 5AT piece of shit all fixed up is $5000, don't get it, but I love it if true.
what tires do I buy for highway driving?
>>23387412>member only itemguess I'll take my business elsewhere.btw any of those tires would be ok for highway driving.
>>23387439>tfw my Costco membership ran out in Novembernot sure if it's worth $50 to buy those tires since I can't see the fucking pricewhich ones are the quietest though? I drive a lot and prefer comfort over performance
So according to the honda dealership (was in for the Airbag recall, they did a inspection for free), my upper left ball joint is loose. I didnt notice anything weird driving it around. How dangerous is leaving this until spring?They mentioned oil leaks too, but I already knew about those (valve cover gasket and distributor o-ring)
>>23387446we only have Sam's Club around here, no Costco.but as for the tires, I think you're overthinking it a bit. anything other than a full on winter tire or off road tire is gonna be pretty similar on the highway in terms of noise.
Bought me a CB125F ladsTell me why I'm retarded
>>23387412I like Bridgestone because Japanese and it's an OEM on Accords, same with Firestone.I'm a cheap ass so I don't have that.
>04 em2>go for nice new years drive>Maint Req'd light flashes after turning it onwhat could it be? and what should I do? I wont be able to see a mechanic or have an obd2 scanner delivered til next week
>>23387613>and what should I do?get your maintenance done?
>>23387613That's nothing pham, the MAINT REQD light is a 7500 mile dummy light that goes on for oil changes, you can reset it yourself by doing some funky shit with the key on position and trip reset button, or your oil change guy will reset it when he does your oil.
>>23387621ah okit flashes for a few seconds, doesnt stay on. I just changed the oil 2 weeks ago, maybe some other fluid? I bought it in October so havent had it long
>>23387636It's not even tied to any sensors, the demographic of people who drive civics and accords don't know about maintenance and shouldn't have to, their car just works, and if taken to a dealer every 7500 miles, it would be in good shape if they fork over the money.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y6SGObJl1vI
>>23387646hmm, okthanks :)
Hey guys. Do you know of where I can possibly buy all new hoses for my 99 Honda Accord v6? Like when you lift the hood, everything you see? Things just look so old inside and I want to rejeuvinate it insides.>pic related not my car
>>23387681you could at least take a pic of your specific Accord
>>23387681I would just go to a shop and ask for upper and lower radiator hoses, they will cut off some fresh hose for you with nice new clamps, also the intake hose can get really decrepit on Accords as it gets old and cracked due to movement of the engineIf you have a V6, this is the one.https://www.autozone.com/external-engine/fresh-air-intake-hose/dorman-fresh-air-intake-hose-696-033/279524_0_0
>>23387691Here's the picture. It's the only picture I have. Things are rusty. There was a snowstorm the night before.>>23387697Haha. I currently have duct tape on that intake hose. I got my small stimulus check and wanted to treat my car. Is it possible to get everything replace from one store? It's my first car and do not know the name of all the hoses.
>>23387681>>23387975its an accord my man any car store will have loads in storage if you ask could probably find everything on autozones website just to make sure desu
>>23387975I know the Dorman intake hose can be ordered and picked up at autozone, but you my have to order the upper and lower radiator hoses off eBay and take them to your shopThese are OEM if you're about the OEM life.https://www.ebay.com/itm/Genuine-OEM-Honda-Accord-V6-Radiator-Hose-Set-Hoses-98-02-Upper-Lower-P8A-P8C/401341752755?fits=Year%3A1999%7CModel%3AAccord&hash=item5d71d525b3:g:v20AAOSwrklVN7pv
>>23387681Put some money towards a b&m transmission cooler and fresh DW-1 atf
>>23388052That's the taken care of my good anon brother. I wanted to to upgrade all those hoses because the look very old.
>>23385894just got me a clean 05 tsx with some minor dings here and there 2 weeks ago. 135k miles, autotragic, 3.5k. it's meh imo but not my first option. my sister needed a car asap and really liked my last car so i gave it to her for cheap and got this one spontaneously.
>>23388743>not my first optionIt should be because there isn't a much better daily than a K24 5AT Honda for sub 5 grand.
>>23386297looks easy as fuck to put on. maybe a small pain in the ass to screw it in from behind
>>23388759it's a bulletproof car for sure but i had my eyes on a 2nd gen is350. ultimately i just didn't want to fork out that kind of money at this time.at least now i can add honda/acura to my list of car brands owned. i think i'll enjoy my time with the car desu once winter is gone
>>23388770I don't have to take off the bumper or anything?
I wonder how much longer Honda will keep the Si around. The type r is clearly here to stay.
>>23389404Type R has too many doors now
>>23389404Now that you mention it, I can't even remember the last time I've seen an si on the road in Phoenix. Nothing but mustangs, challengers, and Camaros as far as sports cars goes.
>>23389388fuck if i know. take a peek yourselflooks like you could get away with snapping it into place
Hey guys, I currently own a FN2 type r, but I'm considering selling it for a integra dc5 type r. I just loved the look of them since I was a kid, and I just couldn't warm up to the UFO look of the civic. What do you guys think?
>>23389563I like the DC5 because its an actual integra in your market.
>>23389497Gotta compete with sbubbabub, it has the rice and goes fast, its gonna sell.
What do you guys think about the crz? Would be good for a daily?
>>23389618>when you want a fast car but your wife made you get something that can haul groceries and pick the kids up from school
>>23389631I'd drive it
>>23389654That's the Accord 2.0T, the old ball n chain would never approve of that huge spoiler and manual transmission.
>>23389665so why put 5 doors on it if its not wife-friendly
>>23389671Its what had to be done in this age of 3 door hatch dying, I actually like the FK8 Civic more than the old DC2, its big and comfortable enough to use as a GT car.

Does Honda still make k engines?
>>23390202Yes, they have the new earth dreams K20C engines with direct injection and a lowered compression ratio and turbo on the Accord., and you can still get a brand new ILX and TLX with a naturally aspirated 200HP K24V7/K24W7 engine.
>>23390216That's nice but no k20s in the civic anymore? I'm sorry I'm a bit out of loop.
>>23390239Honda puts a K20 into their base model civic lx and a k20 turbo into the accord 2.0T and civic type R
>>23390246>base model civic lxMore like based model civic lx
>>23390246K20 with turbo? I thought k20 engines didn't take turbos well?
>>23390255Honda magic, The Accord 2.0T and Civic Type R have a K20 engine code so idk what exactly they did.
>>23390255>>23390260The Honda K20C2 naturally aspirated motor in the Civic LX has a 10.8x compression ratio, the K20C4 turbo engine in the Accord has the compression ratio lowered to 9.8x to handle the boost, and the Civic Type R K20C1 is also a lowered 9.8x compression ratio for boost, but it's got a different turbo for more power.
>>23390260They're not really k20 engines anymore though. They're fundamentally different than the k20a or k20z.
>>23390273Also this, they're really K series by name, the days of beautiful cast aluminum intake manifolds with the fuel rail on top are gone.
>>23390287Damn. So the days of golden NA engines are dead? First Ferrari, now honda? Who is even left? I know Lamborghini but that's it.
>>23390313I like those low revving naturally aspirated Hondas, so I think the 1.5T will do well for years to come, but the days of an 8200 rpm Civic from the factory are gone, I'm more bummed about double wishbone being gone from Hondas because double wishbone accord is a great alternative to a BMW for us poor boys, it's fun and doesn't break catastrophically.
>>23390316Are they still using the v6 Camry engine?
>>23390333Hell yeah dude they put a spoiler on it and red seatbelts for extra rice.
>>23390339Damn they used to start making those engines when I first served the country at 18. I think it was '92, they still use the exact same?
>>23390360Oh no Anon, they're way better than they were in the 90s witht he Toyota MZ V6, none of that goofy timing belt shit, the 2GR they have in modern Camrys are fantastic.
>>23390370Sounds great, I remember my dad having a 90s Toyota and I always loved the color. It was this deep dark red and I don't see that color on the road anymore. I might check out this new Toyota Camry you told me about anon, thank you.
Trying to buy first car, hondabros.>2006 v6 Accord sedan with 6 spd manual>186k miles>$5500I know it's relatively rare, but he's asking way too much, r-right?
>>23390540It's a good bit of money for the year and mileage, but that mileage wouldn't matter if the car had been maintained, a 2006 Accord you got for $3000 can turn into a $7000+ car if there's alot of deferred maintenance, especially that damn suspension, you can have over $1300 in the car just doing all four struts and an alignment, and with the V6, the maintenance is even greater because of the water pump timing belt job that may or may not have been done, you can add another $1200-$1300 on that too, and we don't know if it's leaking out of the valve cover(s), power steering pump which is cheap, steering rack, which isn't cheap at $1500 oem.If this person has been fixing the car when it needed anything, it's worth every bit of $5500.
>>23390604Well, he claims to have maintained it consistently and on time, but he's also the third owner, which doesn't inspire confidence. Given it's my first real car, I think maybe I'll look for something a little newer, with fewer miles. Shame though, haven't seen many standards, let alone that particular combination.
>>23391841>third owner, which doesn't inspire confidenceThat's actually a good thing, means the owners gave the car at tension when it changed hands, I am the second owner of a car the guy only changed oil and transmission fluid on, so it was in need of enough stuff to total the car, but I didbt pay alot for it and fixed the leaks and broken stuff that commonly happens.
Da fuq is up with used car prices? ~$6,800 for a 2012 Accord LX with 145k miles..
>>23392495It's rona, we bought my sister a yaris damn near two years ago for 3800, and now it's damn near 6 grand for one with more mileage.
>>23392513Still makes no sense since more people are staying home.. why would demand for used cars be up?
>>23385753i luv this>>23385952and with the k1's m'wah
>>23392522People's incomes are down and the normal car payment they would be okay with is currently not okay, either that or they're being reposessed and they need to have a shitbox car, the demand is up for Accord LX because it's the bomb and the price is high now.
>>23392536Fuck. Guess I gotta go another year with my 94 shitbox. Thinking of dropping $10k on Bitcoin and hoping to double my money in a few weeks. Decisions.
>>23392554I'd rather buy Amazon, bit coin iffy af, if you remember 2018, everyone was doubling their money until it crashed.
sup /ho/mo'sjust bought an eg8 sedanwhat is a good bang for buck coilover or shock/spring combo?
>>23392595You looking to slam it? I just run Duralast lel
>>23392620preferably something that could do both street and canyon driving. comfortable but firm enough. do you run duralast shocks/springs? or coilovers? or what lol. also not in USA
>>23392629The term coilover is something ricer boys use to describe every strut assembly with a spring coiled around a shock, whether you have a double wishbone or Macverson setup, if it's modern and not a torsion beam, it's a coilover suspension.But I do run Duralast strut assemblies and they feel like the OEM, I don't know what an EG8 costs per strut, but I paid $99 a strut.
>>23392646Also I believe Duralast struts to be made by a company called Gabriel, so look for Gabriel, monroe, or if you've got extra money, KYB strut assemblies.
Why didn't Honda redesign the rear lights on the 2021 Accord?
>>23392766I like the look of it and it has the amber indicator lights, I'm so glad they didn't put LEDs on it like the facelifted 7th generation Accord.
>>23392766They kind of look like the new nsx taillights. They've done this before in the 90s with the accord coupe and old nsx. I like em.
>>23392495why's it so cheap? salvage?
>>23395696I'm happy with the fishbowl life, just don't want to put any more money into interior after that headliner replacement.>>23395706$6800 for a 145K mile generation of an Accord that came out in 2008 that might eventually need repair is kind of alot, $6800 is something you pay for an extremely low mile car
>>23376963facebook/marketplace/item/1025675987881509/worth it even with the oil leak?
>>23376963How fucked am I if my '98 Civic hatch has rusted out rear wheelarches? One side isn't too bad but the other arch has a finger sized hole in it due to rust.If I don't drive it too much and avoid bad weather could it last another year or two before I can get it fixed?
anyone daily the new si's here?how are they comfort wise? are the gearing ratios shorter than non si's?
>>23395775seconding this. my shitbox is starting to bubble on both right fenders but i want to stop that shit asap. it looks like it stretches a good portion of the arch but you can't see it aside from the small bubbles. how much do you guys think it will run me? i have never had body work done on any of my cars
what first got you interested in Honda's /hg/?
>>23395772are you the same Anon posting all these Facebook marketplace links? just pick one dude.>Exterior color: Greenthe Prelude in the pic is definitely not green. looks dark grey to me.>red Type R badge on the fronttacky.

>>23399075>are you the same Anon posting all these Facebook marketplace links? just pick one dude.i would love to but mexicans apparently suck at responding to any sort of message regarding their cars. https://offerup.com/item/detail/981947893/trying for this one enxt
>>23399213ooh I like the teal color on that one.
Fug the snow.
>>23399043I needed a first car and found this on Craigslist for $1200. I had no money but my dad and I went and looked at it and it was skookum. He surprised me by buying it there and letting me pay him back over time.It was love at first drive.
>>23400519>$1200 car>been driving for over 4 yearsThat's like the shitbox deal of the century, a $25 a month car payment.
>>23400519>skookumEither a AvE fan or from BC. Either way, based.
>I put 45,000 miles on my 2016 V6 Accord last year>did it all with premium gasIs this bad? Am I fucking up my car if I put premium in it? I figured since its a V6 maybe it would get better mileage with premium so that why I do it, plus my company pays for all of my gas.
what was honda thinking with those mesh seats on TL S's?was looking at one that had small rips in the seats and i dont blame the guy cause that thing looks like itll tear super easy. must be really annoying getting these cars in the higher mileage.
>>23401968No. It's not bad, and won't do any damage to anything but your wallet from paying for premium. You likely aren't getting any better fuel economy, and if your owner's manual says to use 87, just use 87 and save your money.I only out in 91 if I'm storing my car for a few months since it doesn't have ethanol in it. Otherwise, 87 all the way.That said, since your company pays for it, go wild. Premium won't hurt it
CM8I went to check up on my plugs, 5 of them were finger loose, and 1, the firewall side center, took some the head with it on the way out.I managed to force the chowdered plug back in and it ran fine for a while, but now I'm getting code 420 (catalyst, firewall side), and I'm thinking it might be related to that cylinder. It's on the backside out of reach so helicoil is not an option and replacing the back head would mean pulling the whole engine, so that's not happening. If I dare to try to replace the plug, can I just red loctite the new plug in and call it good? Will loctite hold if the threads are fucked?
>>23402719Is that rust? How is that possible?!
>>23376963Frens, I'm in the market for a used Honda fit, late 1st gen or early 2nd generation. Is there anything that I should look out for? The one I'm eyeing right now is a 2008 sport with 96k miles, owner is asking $5700, which seems in line with the rest of the market. I'm also looking at some sticky-approved civics. Also, wouldn't a hot hatch Honda Fit be called a Honda Swole?
>>23401099The former.>>23400539I've put like $2500 into the car just for maintenance since then.
>>23404865Hold my $1497 rack and pinion, $1348 in struts, $325 starter, and $789 making it not leakIt's a good bit of money, but it's not bad for over 17 years
>>23404898$655 for me since I bought my civic sibin June. Though it would be a lot less if I had a garage sooner. $100 oil change, $150 transmission fluid change really take a bite outta you
>>23404970The 09 here. $3126, though the suspension really got me on this one. But what can you do. If it needs it, you do it.Also, canadian, so parts are expensive and our currency sucks
>>23376963>make plans to meet with civic mexican>tells me to message him 20min before i get to the spot>do so>wait 35 min past the arranged time>message him a few times>"sorry bro didnt see your message, cant make it, not at home"come on man, i just want an eg.
>>23377006>Should I get a Prelude?why not?also, hey /o/ been awhile
Gen 2 CRV. Will occasionally have to drive through a foot or so of water. I only need a soft roader so don’t want the added maintenance cost of a big boy truck.
>>23406563>lifted K seriesLook no further.
My shitfit has been pristine mechanically but these rust repairs are not acceptable for a 13/14 year old car with 170 000 km on it. My buddies serpentine belt tensioner failed in his 2015 ralliart and he's at 150 k ish and is fairly rust free except for a few spots on the body from rock chips due to thin paint. But honestly I'm tired of rust and would rather be elbow deep hunched over a hot turbo doing engine bay work.
fix one problem on my new (used) Civic and the techs bring up yet another problem when I look at my receipt. leaking rear shock wtf?this salesman is gonna regret giving me his buisness card, gonna go back again tomorrow and give him the buisness. hope the commission pay was worth it bud.
>>23407945The stealerships are always going over the cars with a fine tooth comf, I wouldn't replace the strut until it starts to feel worn out and get bouncy.
>>23408058fine enough to sell the car not fine enough not to fuck me
just installed the vcmtuner II on my accord '10 v6, hope this stops the misfires and oil consumption
>>23408719Hope it runs smoother, based bass blaster
So I test drove the accord touring and touring hybrid. It was my first time driving a hybrid. It was a weird drive. I don't know how to explain it but it feels unnatural. I almost don't get the point of the paddles on the 10 gear transmission. You can barely get any time with the gears.Is it worth pursuing further?
>>23409028Looking into a cheaper 1.5T touring if a comfy car is what you're after and you don't want to mess around with gears, Honda's got a great CVT
>>23409040I used to own the CVT 1.5T Civic it had some real kick for a tiny car. I drove the 2.0T touring and hybrid.
>>23409057The Hybrid is a 1.5T CVT with batteries and an assistive motor in there, might be a concern if you keep the car forever, but the 1.5T in the Accord is a bit higher output than the normal 1.5T Civics, with 192HP over the 174hp in a Civic, it's a big car but it will hustle around town.
>>23389631I got one 2 weeks ago and enjoy it. good daily.
>>23404898where are you buying your shit where its that expensiveDid you pay labor to have that shit installed?
>>23404898when being a wrenchlet goes wrong
>>23413377dudes probably scared of spring compressors and is shelling out for quick struts like a retard
anyone got the VTEC honda spic pepe?
>>23401968>>23402030Relating to this, a lot of people on Accord forums say the newer J series engines responds to higher octane and gains power, but you hear none of this with the k24 engines.
>>23403517Carbon that's caused by the cylinder deactivation afaik
I found out the oem supplier of oil filters for Honda is Fram. I bought Wix to use (not XP). How do they compare? Or am I being autistic about this? I've heard shit about Fram, tho I know that doesn't mean the oem stuff is the same
>>23413377I paid labor for everything, only thing OEM was the steering rack because I dont want it to leak again, other than that I went with a $145 reman starter instead of the $472 mitsuba plus $168 labor, and went with reman power steering pump that cut the price from $664 installed down to $289.So far so good.>>23413474It's a hard life.
https://offerup.com/item/detail/1042737112/time to make an extremely dumb buy
>>23414518Honda Econo motors are such low oil pressure engines that the oil filter wouldn't affect it, a Wix filter is straight spoiling the thing.
>>23409071I think I'm going to get the Touring 2.0T after sitting in both trims. The HUD is pretty awesome as well.My 2016 EX-T made 191hp. My car was a first production run and didn't have the same lower tuned ecu software as the touring. Yet made 4.6 L/100 km or 51 mpg highway.Shame the civic sports trim is the basic ass 2.0L
>>23416259honestly bretty gud. hard to go wrong with an s2k at 11 grand when they're easily selling for much more
>>23416975You're gonna be very impressed with what you're getting.
https://sandiego.craigslist.org/nsd/cto/d/valley-center-1991-honda-accord-wagon/7257364484.htmlthoughts on this?330k on the body is pretty lulzy but honestly besides paint it looks pretty decent talk me out of this, im desperate for one of these
why are all TSX built in Japan? I thought they were just rebadged Accords? Are they easy to find parts for, as in the do they share the same parts as Accords?
>>23419866They're premium Japanese luxury cars, but it's not a fortune to maintain.
newfag here, bought a 2016 civic lx half a year ago for my first car. i didnt know much about cars at the time so i got a cvt. really wish i got a manual cuz i wanted to turbo it, but feel weird and wouldnt do it to my cvt.
>>23417029well it looks like a giant piece of shit and it has an "angle kit", but the engine and trans are fantastic.also wheres that guy who said no one in /hg/ owns an s2k
I’m interested in the Fit but I saw a bunch of posts here that the bottom rusts kind of fast. Since I live in New England where it snows, and I normally keep my vehicle outside should I be wary of getting a car with that problem?
>>23421190that thing is beat to shit
delwe ran our honda's. clearly the next step is to run our subarus
>>23422034honda civic is "oof" tier compared to god tier wrx
Car been down for almost a week. I'll have my sedan back in a few days though.>driving around an hour and a half away to friend to load up my car with stuff from his passed father's place>i get free meds for my asthma in the deal which is fuckin sick>only thirty minutes away from the destination at his little Honda scrapyard where he lives in a camper>as soon as I get off the interstate, hear a pulley rattle>assume its the alternator, keep going>feel a loss of acceleration but don't wanna get stranded innawoods with no signal, keep going>finally arrive at my destination>pop the hood>my fucking timing belt is loose>the tensioner pulley bolt backed off somehow>get a ride home then come back the next day to take it apart>bolt refuses to come off>it snapsWell this car is done for now. I don't wanna make it worse so I might take the block to a machine shop to get it sorted out. I didn't notice much audibly like valves on pistons when I shut it off.
>>23422045I think this is how much it jumped but I can't be 100% certain. Pretty impressive because I was giving it a lot of RPM after that bolt came loose.
>>23422034im gameAre you making more horsepower than stock?
>>23421798yeah it is. 11k ap2
>>23376963is there any worthwhile mod to add a little power to my mid 2000's shitbox civic? like can you fuck around with the computer to reprogram the fuel ratios or some shit? how do i remove the restricter plate im tired of putting the pedal to the floor when merging on the freeway and having 1980s volvos pass me from behind
>>23408719holy shit holyshit sholy shit anonanon finally someone has the same problem i do fuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuck where were you like 2 years ago when i had this problem. anyway i think i fixed it on mine. i literally have the same car, '10 v6 accord. fucking drank oil like crazy. i got tired of spending so much to top it off. started having problems with misfires so i changed the plugs. when i pulled the plugs 3 of them were fucking nasty. the top 3. i replaced with premium plugs and thought i solved the problem but started having misfires and weird shit again only a couple months later. the plugs were covered in nasty oily tar and trashed. i was pissed as fuck since they were expensive and only like 1,000 miles old. i started digging in online forums and ended up where you are. learned about a fucking class action suit on honda for this shit. unfortunately was already way past the last warranty year the suit would allow so had to fix on my own. after much research i learned about the VCM system and how shitty it is and how it causes the piston springs to get clogged and make the oil rings stuck closed, letting all the oil and shit past the piston and onto the plugs. i tried a few tricks i read online like loading MMO into the top where the spark plugs go but that didnt really do much as i noticed the new plugs were getting dirty again so the rings were still stuck. then i tried a harsher approach, used a ton of seafoam let that shit soak for like 2 days in the head and even did a couple cranks to slosh it around and added more. then did a full drain, oil change. tons of nasty shit burned out and it worked and fixed the problem, i wasnt guzzling oil anymore and the plugs were cleanish for a few weeks. but after a couple months it started to happen again so i got the vcm muzzler chip from a dude in canada. it makes all 6 pistons run all the time, even at idle and low rpm. it took a couple weeks to tune it just right but fixed it 100%. she runs great now
>>23408719>>23422319ps if you need any tips or help let me know. i recommend doing a seafoam clean to get rid of the crud currently in there on the top 3 valves. if you want to know more just ask, even though you got all 6 pistons working now with the VCM delete. it took my car a few weeks to get acclimated btw, i would get random warning lights about temp or oil or check engine that would come and go in like a couple minutes but after about a week i think the onboard computer settled down. unfortunately all that time spilling unburnt oil through the engine fucked up my catalytic converter. clogged or wore it out it so check yours if you get a weird exhaust code. ive had it running smooth and normal for a couple years now with no issues and no oil consumption. i change oil like normal, no more topping off with half a quart every 2 weeks
>>23414518fram has different tiers of filter. the low tier ones are paper. i like to get the premium one its only a few bucks more but good for like 2 oil changes
>>23422287>Mid 2000'sI'm assuming a 7th gen, so something like a D17. Don't bother, those things don't like to make power. Probably the weakest engine Honda ever built.
>>23422585yeah its a D17A1. i got a KN filter on the way
My battery found a way to disconnect on a hop. Should I be working about electrics light flashed once then it drove normal without issue after turning off and back on with terminals reconnected and batter ziptied for the time being.>>23422585I like them but yeah they don't make much power at all. Costs way too much to build.
