  1. I got these Takata 6pt belts a while back and never installed them. I'm having financial problems and need the cash more than the belts. They are new in the box, have instructions and eye bolts. $260 shipped each. Please email me at ethancummings@hotmail.com
  2. oops forgot the price, $220 shipped to the lower 48 Engines listed on the instructions, B16A, D15B, B16B, B18C, B20A, F22B, F22A, H22A, F22A, F22B.
  3. I have Bee R launch control, dual rev limiter. It has high and a low adjustable rev limiters. The high limiter is adjustable in 500rpm increments, but will not allow the engine to rev past any existing limiters. The low limiter is also adjustable in 500rpm increments. It is set in the 3k-5krpm range depending on your preference. The low limiter is activated when the clutch (or brake for automatics) is depressed. This allows the driver to hold the gas to the floor at the start line without maxing the rpms out. It also allows for flat shifting, letting the driver shift gears without letting off the throttle. This works because when the clutch is pressed to shift the limiter is dropped to the low limiter setting. Unlike factory limiters that cut fuel the bee r limiters work by "scrambling" the ignition signal. In essences retarding the ignition to the point where in is ineffective. Since the ignition and not the fuel is cut his often creates the flame shooting exhaust they are know for. It also means that I do not recommend using these on cars with catalytic converters. The fuel going through the exhaust will most likely damage them. I will also note that when activated these units are VERY loud, sounds like shot guns going off. There is a gain control that allows you to adjust how "hard" the limiter hits, basically controls the time between limiter hits changing how many times it bounces a second. Very easy to install, 5 wires. Power, ground, clutch pedal, crank signal, ignition signal. Thanks
  4. are your tail lights out? If you have power going in and the bulbs are good try using a jumper on the ground wire. If they light up just make a new ground wire.
  5. subi's are the easiest new cars to work on. I like a challenge so I take a lot of the diagnostics and "other" vehicles brought to the dealership. I don't need help with any Honda cars but I do like to learn. I took a class a while back on Honda performance, always looking to broaden my horizon. The launch control works "best" on turbo cars, lets the turbo spool before you launch. However the units also let you shift without letting off the gas. When you press the clutch to shift it drops the rev limiter to the lower setting so you don't need to let off the gas.
  6. I miss my 2s. The 3sgte is a great power plant, put in a fuel system, big turbo, and intercooler and you got 400+ rwhp on the stock engine.
  7. Dodge stealth twin turbo, American muscle* *made in Japan
  8. My name is Ethan, I'm an ase master certified technician working at a Subaru dealership. I have done a lot of performance and fabrication work on turbo cars but not a whole lot on hondas. I built one turbo civic a couple years back but that is about it. I recently got a shipment of bee r launch control units for Hondas, and came across this forum while looking for potential customers. So while I am always looking to learn more about cars, I hope to be able to help others as well...........and maybe sell some launch control units as well
  9. Does everything else work well, engine wise? Check the fluid level to spec, should be with engine running, at temp, go through the gears then put it in park. Check with the engine running. Some cars have different procedures so check the owners manual. Look to see if the fluid is dark or "burnt" smelling. Changing the fluid may help but do not do a flush, if it has not been done regularly in the past it can cause more problems.
  10. did they pull all the timing covers off? Mechanics will normally make a note that there is an oil leak but won't go digging without permission. Dealer techs are paid flat rate, that means they get paid a specific amount of time to do an oil change. That said they aren't going to spend much time investigating a leak because they are not getting paid for that time.
