What's Goin' on with my car....

Recommended Posts



Well....B16 Trans is in today, along with an oil change (finally get that PWJDM Magnetic Drain Plug in there), and some exhaust tweaking to fix the minor leak coming out after the cat.


I ordered my upper power steering pump bracket yesterday for $25, so that's coming and i'll finally be able to turn in comfort. No PS + No Manual Rack = FTMFL.


As for no vtec, I may need a new pressure switch or entire solenoid, but we shall see about that. That's next weeks' project.


I'm going to get tuned in 2 weeks again, so the valve cover will be cut to just expose the cam gears for tuning.


Eventually I'm ordering a Vibrant Axle-back exhaust to mount up to my new intermediate pipe that I put on a week ago. Pretty much looks like the RS*R tip, so real clean indeed.


But after that i'm going to take a break from performance and focus on exterior modification.




My sub is fixed so my audio set-up is good for now, except i'm going to finally put the 12V wire through the firewall instead of along the door jam lol (did that 3 years ago).


As for exterior mods....


-My '92 Front Bumper will be painted very soon, as well as the new PS Fender to replace the dented one...


-A CF Type-R Front Lip will be ordered




-My new sunroof will be installed (current one is cracked)

are you getting codes dan? which ones? why are you wasting money getting your car tuned my man? i already told you without higher compression pistons , your wasting your time. you dont even have cams in it yet do you? just stock LS bottom with a vtec head dont you have? anyways , waste your money if you wish but , it is a waste.

no codes unless i drive for about 30 minutes then one pops up....but that only happens once in a while.


I have a girl parting out her Civic Si ('99) and she said she'd sell me her P30 pistons/rings for $100, so if I can pick them up I'll then get it tuned.


I need this idle fixed, and I don't understand why it just wants to turn off the first 25 minutes of driving. At stop lights i have to left foot brake and keep some pressure on the throttle to keep the damn car on...i tried pulling the throttle cable but that's not doing it...still drops down to 200 rpms or turns off when coming to a stop.


As for camshafts, i have Rob's old JDM B18C camshafts....ohhhhsnap (not)
