Honda is garbage
>>23427417looks so bad but feels so good.
what do you guys think about the new fit?
might put this on the ol' 4 cylinderpretty sweet, right bros? :)
>>23429509idk man thats advanced autism
Thinking about buying an Element as a shameful daily. Any thoughts on them? Things in particular I should investigate if I go to look at one in person? Mainly want one because they seem to be relatively available in my area and I like the cargo options the rear hatch design allows for. Also, I really like cube cars.
>>23428691That's actually pretty cool looking. I hate how America hates small cars. They're just so wonderful to drive. I wish Honda would have made a Fit Si or something.
>>23430975Fit si will be a dream come true
>>23427764Like bangin a fat chick
>>23430975You can make your own. A K swap shouldn't be too difficult. Shit, even a R18 would be quite the upgrade. IIRC most honda engines are pretty interchangeable, not too too much work
anyone know the compression numbers for a R18? (2011 civic to be exact)I was getting an average of 135-150psi for my cylinders.
My sedan is comfy in the garage. Only 5000 miles added since I last drove it which ain't bad. Head gasket and ARP studs did the trick. Got plans for some maintenance catch up and maybe some front end work.Saw a CM Accord many yards away from the interstate facing east on the west bound side. Cop was already there. I'm wondering how the hell they fucked up driving a highway machine. The Camry I was in basically drives itself with the cruise turned on. >Also visited my good friend with the TLThis design is perfection in sedan form.
>>23433823R18 is 125 +- 28 iirc. You seem good
>doing clutch master cylinder swap on '08 S2000>clutch hard line won't screw into master cylinder assemblyI have spent like six hours spinning this stupid inverted flare nut thing and it's not threading just fucking kill me bros
>>23434148thank you anon
>>23434065Sucks they get such shit MPG for a sedan, doesn't it average like 25mpg?
>>23436303For a 270HP 2004 car, that's pretty darn good.
>>23436321yeah i suppose there's that, didn't think of it lol
This is the year I transform my ek hatch into a facsimile of the cyber night civic.Phase 1: fix up all the odds and ends. Squeaks, creaks, dusty lining etc.Phase 2: performance. It'll be a daily so this won't be too hardPhase 3: a bunch of diy bullshit for futuristic upgrades. Nfc start, and doors. Sexy head and tail lights, maybe a new wing.Phase 4: ????Phase 5: profit
>>23436356Facsimile doesn't mean what I thought it meant. Itll be a general idea not an exact copy
wheres v6 accord VCM anon? did you see my post in the previous thread?
OK br/o/s i need your helpi have a 2007 accord v6 coupe, just rolled over 100k today and it's giving me some shitover the last couple months i had an intermittent check engine light for a p0497 (low purge flow) and it usually would just go away and it hasnt come on since august.today i came home from driving and getting a car wash, putting air in my tires (for free at discount tire), and gettin a sick ass steering wheel coveri pull in the driveway and the car quits when i put it into parki start it again, it turns on and MIL light is oni read the codes and i get U0107, P0135, P0155, and P0641the p0497 code surprisingly didnt appear alongside all of theseand I really cannot think of a problem that could be causing these codesI cleared the codes, and they haven't come back yet after driving a couple people home and the car hasn't died again yet.can anyone be of service to possibly investigate?
God fucking dammit I hate living in NY. Every single EF I’ve looked at is rusted to shit cause we love dumping salt on our roads and people never was their cars in the winter.
>>23437698what do the codes mean did you look them up? whats the history of the vehicle? did you do any maintenance recently? does the idle and timing sound normal? is temperature reading hot or normal? are your radiator fans bloing like crazy after you shut off teh engine? you check compression of each cylinder? is all the easy stuff squared away, like you have oil in your engine? pulled and checked the spark plugs? pull and check PCV for stuck valve? checked your air hose for cracks? air filter is clean and not clogged with 13 years of debris?
>>23438189>>23437698also check the gaskets of the air filter box, make sure its there and not broken or missing or you could be losing intake suction pressure that way. check all air hose clamps are tight and no cracks in hose. could be a bad mass airflow sensor too.
>>23437698>>23438189>>23438196k i just googled the codes, it all seems to be electronic related or sensor related. is your battery good? maybe your battery is failing. lots of places will test that for free if you dont have your own gear. a multimetere can tell you at least if its putting out the proper voltage. but you could have a low voltage battery thats still good if its not charging which could be a alternator issue. id say start with the battery because its the simplest. start with the easiest possible shit first then work your way down
>>23438189the only things i did recently in the last couple months were likereplace the timing belt/serpentine belt, throw in a new water pump and replace coolant (no issues after this)temp reads normalradiator fans werent blowing at all they were finei dont have tools to check compressioni'll check the gaskets of the air filter box tomorrow>>23438202yeah that's what i really don't getall of them are related to electronics and "losing connection" to themrecently i had to disconnect the battery (about a month and a half ago) to replace the drivers side headlight bulb and i cleaned off the corroded buildup shit on the terminalsa long time ago i was reading my ABS codes and it gave me 61-1, "low voltage during cranking", but i wouldn't know if that'd have anything to do with it. the p0497 code is intermittent and i believe the purge solenoid causes the car to idle kinda shitty. maybe these two things factor into it? i don't knowi was gonna buy like an NTK solenoid from rockauto but im broke right now so im waiting to get paid again to do that
>>23427417Ausfag hereIf you had a choice between a DC5 Integra type S, or a EP3 JDM Civic Type R, what would you choose? Assuming both are the same price/km
honda is bad
>>23438895at letting others win.
>>23427764>NC1 MX5 womp womp
>>23427417what's more funK20 swapped, nicely modified EK hatch, or S2000 with a few simple mods (coilovers,wheels and exhaust I guess)I assume both would turn out to be around the same sorta price range
>>23438232how old is your battery?
>>23440165s2000 will handle better, the EK hatch would be a faster straight line drag probably
how does one avoid the "mogu mogu headgasket" meme?
>>23441116K swap it
>>23441116Extra care of the cooling system. Maybe throw some water wetter in there too. Watch the thermostat especially. If that seizes closed a head gasket failure is only a few steps away. Speaking of Civics. I cleaned mine up a bit and fixed a few things.>Straightened steering wheel>Installed Ford Taurus cup holder>Fixed throttle position sensor, was installed wrong>Did a small coolant flush, still waiting on new thermostat>Adjusted headlight aim>Cleaned out trash and vacuumedIt's gonna be an excellent daily pizza beater. Just like it started out in 2014.
>>23441252Here's the cup holder. They're extra hard to find lately so I'm happy I have one for both my Civics. Kinda want a taller shift knob. Might take the hatch one since it's down for now.
>>23441258Also throwback to 2014. Crazy that I've had this car around me for seven years now. Same amount of time I've been posting in this general.
>>23441262And now. Very OEM+ build.
what would i have to upgrade to take the 10th gen Si from a 6.5k redline to a 7k redline?also how pointless would this be?
>>23441734Expensive. You're gonna need a ecu or tune or whatever. If you want revs, turbo is a mistake. I'm not too familiar with 10th gen civics, but I dont know if getting them to rev higher is something people do. I dont doubt you could do it, but I dont know if it would be financially beneficial. Plenty of other mods you could do before to increase you joy much much more.Should have gone with a 8th or 9th gen civic, then turboed it if you really wanted the torque.
Lol COVID made the fk8 rare, my MY19 fk8 (<10k km) is selling at literally new price levels at Australia. More than what I bought for
>>23442238yeah i mean it's not really necessary, i think i'd get better value out of a tuner plus better bolt onsI was just wondering if it was something you could even do since I know the type-r redlines at 7k but it is a different engine.
>>23434441>spent two days trying to thread it>go into garage last night and figured I’d be retarded and try again>threads fine and I get it connected in like 15 minutesI think I just had to be holding it at a very specific angle but I never want to deal with that bullshit again
>>23444427Nice man, I hate it when that shit happens. Happy to hear you got it working
>>23442628Can relate. I paid msrp when the avg was 5-10k over. >driving off the lot>your car appreciated
>>23445535Yeah this is at my local dealer. It's crazy. I love the car but that price is built new STI territory.
Will I regret it if I get a 2014 CR-Z with 45k miles for $12k? Am I getting ripped off?
>>23446494If it's M/T no, that shit is fun even if it's slow.If you get bored or the battery goes to shit you can swap in a K20 and if you live in California you don't have to smog because it's a hybrid.
Any reason not to buy a 2022 Civic hatch? Or is it not a good idea to buy a first year new-gen model?
I can't find too much info on the longeivity of 10th gen civic CVTs. All i read is that they are better than jatco but that's not saying much. Should I sell my civic before I reach 100k or can I drive it into the ground?>>23446528do research on the drivetrain. I'd wager the 11th gen will be nearly identical to the 10th with some improvements. Maybe look into snagging a 2021 at a big discount since it's the last model year of the 10th gen
>>23446767Honda 1.5t CVTs can take 250HP before blowing out, just change your fluid and it shouldn't be having a problem.
>>23445715Lmao is anyone with 50K even looking at 4 cylinders?
>>23448229>As someone with money who loves 4 cylinders, I feel personally attackedWent and test drove a 2016 GTR todayPretty upsetting honestlyThe car had a lot more wear than it should for the mileage and I was surprised at how slow the r35 is.Don't get me wrong, it's pretty fast for a car you can just go buy, but it is not faster than a shit box that I put together in my garage. For a car that is 100k+ new I expected a lot more than thatNot really sure what to do now
>>23449374GTR has really lost its thunder in its old age. I've met a few people who sold theirs because it's boring. One went for a C7 Z06 with a manual.
>>23449449C7 is like a C6 turned up in all the wrong waysI really, really liked the C6. C7 not so muchAt this point I'm finna go test drive a 570s or a gt3 or something
>>23449515He's had a ton of cars that I can't even list. Know be had a Viper and a Mk4 Supra for a while. Between the GTR and the C7 he had a Mercedes AMG GT but sent it right back when he found out how much a brake job cost.
>>23444759Thanks dude. Finally bled the clutch and the clutch pedal was all squeaky, so I went ahead and polished/greased the slave cylinder. Still got a minor squeak but I can live with it. Tomorrow is brake bleed and maybe regreasing the shifter.
>>23440249UPDATE. i hope you're still around. Same thing happened again, I put the car in park at a gas pump and turned my headlights off and then the car shut off. All the codes were the same except with the addition of a P0498 code.I'm gonna look at my car tomorrow and crack it open. Would the battery cause this? I had to pull it out a couple months back to replace a headlight bulb and i wiped corrosion off of it with a paper towel. I don't know how my battery would do this if it's something that starts the car and doesn't actually keep the electrics running. Unless im retarded, i am a wrenchlet
>>23449374we gotta run em
>finally past engine break-in period for Sifeels good rippin' it, lads.
>>234526032020. don't h8 me because it's a soulless 1.5t
>>23452648L15B engines are cool.
>>23427417I guess I should tell y'all I sold that grey 09 civic that was added 12/19.
>>23438316Type R should have an lsd. The only thing my type S is lacking. Get that.
>>2343630320 city, 27 highway. Car is heavy though. My friend hit 40 highway after a few weight reductions.
went to a lube place, 2007 v6 accordthe place put high mileage 10w30 instead of what my oil cap readout, 5w20, should i give a shit
>>23456983Nah it should be fine, you can try another shop next change, and hopefully they'll stick to the 5W-20 blend CMs crave.
What is the general consensus on the current gen hatchback? Also, does it have oil dilution problems? Would the corolla hatchback be a better option?
>>23457227If you like hot little hatches made in Japan, the Corolla Hatch is a cooler car, Toyota's kept the size small, while the Civic is thicc, there shouldn't be oiling issues if the oil's changed every 3000 on the Civic.
>>23457272>oil's changed every 3000 on the Civic.that's kind of shitty. Even most old shitboxes don't need an oil change for 5000
>>23457227Corolla hatch cargo space looks really small compared to Civic. Wait for the 22 Civic hatch.
>tfw you get the first rock chip on your car At least I'll care less for the future ones to come.
>>23457497if you noticed a rock chip it is not a shitbox, it is a nice car and you should be proud and take care of it
>>23457528The problem with a daily is its just gonna keep getting chipped after you respray or touch it up.I'd get one of those black bra things if his commute is highway, won't protect against a broken windshield but the hood will stay nice.
>out of nowhere neighbor whips out a third gen prelude si as if he's had it forevergod these things are so nice to look atgotta chat the guy up now
>>23457551>>23457551Think I'll get one for long drives. Just drove from tx to mississippi. Otherwise il keep it off and deal with the chips I get
>>23457613>for long drivesThat's what I see Tyson Hugie do, and that nihga stays mint with stupid high miles on his cars.
Whats a realistic amount you guys think I could get for my rt4wd wagovan?6 speed, speakerpods, all optioned out200k miles and paints faded but runs greatI just dont see enough for sale to have an idea what they are worth
>>23435429Where do I get the 'Acura' infill for the front bumper for my TL
>>23457679decal you mean? endlessrpm.com has it all.
Posting my old hondas
Got a friend at work with a V6 Silverado so I was able to get my car home.
>>23461866It's really hard to get cars off those dollys so we just hit the gas in the truck and it rolled right off. I wanna pull the engine out, get the bolt sorted, then probably respray the bay wrinkle black.
>>23461878Hatch is officially retired from the game. Sedan is out of retirement. It hasn't delivered since 2016 I think?
>>23461891The sedan might make a better work vehicle, especially if you can get some AC going.
My neighbor is selling a 2000 civic ex. It’s got 164k miles on it. I know for a fact that for the past 70k miles he beat the shit out of it, but somehow it’s still miraculously going without any problems. For 1k$ should I get it? Body is clean and rust free.
>>23462311A Honda can have the living daylights beat out of it if it's been having the maintenance done, an EJ Civic from 2000 that moves under it's own power is the best $1000 car anyday.
>>23462206Yeah all the parts are in it so I'm gonna see if I can get it working before summer returns. Pic related is what I want my bay to look like. Wrinkle black.
I have a 2013 Civic Si that needs new tires. I would like to run Direzza ZIII. I do not want to mount these on stock wheels. I think they are ugly.Im looking around for aftermarket wheels. 17x8 +45 or so. Is this a good size? What tire size is best for that?My car is stock height, I have no plans to lower it. No fenders, no camber. Not looking for wheel brand recommendation, just size.
talk me out of buying a 20 year old HR-V
is D15Z8 84kw a good engine?
,folded 1000 times my ass
Nothing crazy or special but all of my daily drivers have ever been Honda’s and I just can’t give them up. I love Honda’s and even though this year and model is no sports car or Ferrari, I think it’s the best looking 4 door accord they’ve ever made
>tfw impress car bros>tfw ladies jump in automatically (the hardest part is to drop them)Nice car my dudes. Greatest experience on the road ever.
Thinking about buying this honda Accord 2015 sport with automatic transmission.The guy is asking for 8,200 dollars.It has 65k miles on it.
>>234652339th generation sport is the best they've done, wrapping those 19s cost some dough when it needs tires but it's worth it.>>23465538Good deal
HelloI purchased this GTR
>>23465768Damn del didn't know you liked thicc cars
>>23465775Not normally but this one is making 600+ at the wheels so its not too bad
