    Hi Everyone! My name is Bence and I’m from Hungary so sorry If my sentences have some mistake. I always liked JDM cars. I bought my first car in March: Honda Civic 1999 MB6 and I would like to ask some information especially from you Dave because I have exactly the same color Honda than yours. I saw your work https://civic5.com/test_forum/index.php?/topic/4-daves-1998-honda-civic-vti-mb6/ and really like it. Can you tell me the serial number or the name the front and the back bumpers and the spoiler and rims? Can you suggest a website where I can find and order these items? You really help me a lot with these informations! Thank your for your reply! Have a good day! Bence
  3. Same car park.... Different day... Different angle... Same sad owner taking a photo of his car in a public car park
  4. I bet you are chief. Christmas has nowt on this anticipation
  5. Yarp excited to get it in. But long way to go really. Wait for bearings etc to turn up. Mean time can start gapping the piston rings. Literally takes a lifetime to do. Then onto sorting the head out. Need to measure p2v clearance too once together. I suspect will need to use a thicker head gasket now as block has been decked twice. Compression will be higher than before pistons are 9.8:1 as opposed to 9.2:1 and using flat faced valves.
  6. Very nice matey. Bet you were excited when the postie arrived
  7. It likely is twisted. Its quite a common issue tbh. The scissor wears, puts extra strain on it and ends up twisting or bending. You may be able to bodge it up for now and get it going again. But long term a replacement window reg is the answer.

    Dc2 shocks.

    Yeah, that's playing on my mind as well - there are 3 height settings on the koni rear shocks, but might not be enough to compensate. Probably going to have to try and find out from koni...

    Dc2 shocks.

    they will physically fit I'm positive of that. Only curious about the length of the rears mainly. As the deck is bound to be heavier. I recall using eg coilovers on my previous mb6 and they were fine but ended up being low possibly more down to the spring rate rather than the damper?

    Dc2 shocks.

    There's so much guess work in modding these cars I'll try and get more info before ordering anything It'll be with my eibach ones which are for the deck. They're too much for the oem spec shocks to take, and doesn't help with them being so compressed.

    Dc2 shocks.

    I'd take a guess at them being ok yeah. What springs would you use?
  12. dr_broon

    Dc2 shocks.

    Cool. I did notice that the type r / non g type r shocks were listed separately. Do you know about the fronts Jake? Guessing these ones are the fellas if they're okay for EGs as well (and the picture is right).
  13. Earlier

    Dc2 shocks.

    Depends on the model dc2. Some have fork rear. But most of them have a bush on the shock absorber and different LCA.b

    Dc2 shocks.

    Am I right in thinking that the only difference fitment wise for dc2 shocks is the forks on the rears? When I got the skunk LCAs fitted they needed to machine the bush down to be able to fit the shocks, so presumably the LCAs were eg/dc2 ones. I've got to get some better shocks, and miss the konis I used to have, and am thinking about going down the integra route if it will work.
  16. Hello guys I need help; the driver window goes off the rails before reaching the middle position. I have already adjusted the roller guide bolts which connect the scissor mechanism to the glass by following the steps from the manual; No improvements so far. I have also adjusted the inclination of center and front channels but the issue is still there. It could be another issue? Maybe on the scissor mechanism like described here? https://civic5.com/forum/topic/12690-ma8-driver-side-window/#comment-310063 I have made a video of the internal mechanism link Is the shape of the gear correct? It seems slightly twisted. Hope it helps.
  17. Yeah everything lined up perfect, it’s literally just the backbox tip, it’s sitting probably 3/4inches into the bumper. Yeah that’s exactly what it’s like, it’s a nice balance for a daily haha
  18. I had a feeling that someone had issues with this boss before... There's a bit of info on this thread here... Sounds like you're going to have to whip the wheel off to measure the spline to be sure.
  19. Hi guys, I'm looking into buying a HKB Boss for my Civic MB3 (1997). Does anyone have any information as to what boss will fit the spline for my specific model? I've seen a few people say it's the OH-206 DC2/EG boss but just want to make sure. Cheers
  20. Gorgeous little cars they are!
  21. Had an MB6 on my MC2,just put chrome down turned one on about £10.All fits fine,as do Teg type R <B> pipes.<UK>
  22. Did the exhaust hanger etc line up at the rear ok? Thats a bonus if all you need to do is add length to the tailpipe! Love Powerflow systems, thats what we've got on DD. Very quiet/subtle on tickover and driving normally, but give her beans and she has a nice deep tone. Looks nice on the fans, I'd keep em although it depends on what alloys you were thinking of buying.
  23. As I understand it, the ethanol dissolves gunk that's built up in the system over the years, and that clogs the injectors (or at least that's the theory. We've been making sure we go to tesco, as the price difference there seems to be normally 5-6p per litre, which as a percentage of nyon 2 quid isn't much especially given the better fuel efficiency.
  24. Mega worrying mate. Recently, due to being absolutely skint with the cost of oil for our oil fired heating and the leccy bill trebling in price, I've had to run DD on E10 as well as Poppy. If there does end up being a trend of injectors failing due to E10, then the drivers of this country need to make a stand against the oil companies and also our poxy gov. if the e10 is destroying injectors, then the fuel companies can be sued for selling a product which is not fit for purpose.
  25. Nice one with the exhaust. I'm sure that I had an issue with an O ring when I did my thermostat ages ago. Always quite liked the fan blades.
