    Vti s rear lip value

    £70+ I would say. They’re the hardest bit of the lip kit to get. Don’t think anybody has reproduced them like those fiberglass front lips that were made (I ended up with one of those but not too bothered as I’ll likely never put it on!) It’s really annoying though yeah, have to get it sprayed and buy bolts/screws for fitting it and the plastic pegs are usually snapped/been removed so it droops down at the back in the middle unless you use lots of good quality double sided tape! Not to mention mud flaps don’t go on anymore!

    Vti s rear lip value

    How much are these worth or should i say how much would you pay for it? I know they are rare but wasnt expecting someone (a breaker) to ask £100 for it...then i would have to get it sprayed to correct colour too

    Where did you get/buy that plastic L-curve? Dimensions? Does everything else fit normally to MB6?

    Vtis project

    Not a bad looking setup is it. I've got a slight issue but nothing I can't resolve. Because the intercooler is so tucked in I actually don't think the turbo fits in the gap lol.

    b18c4 mb6 no vtec and ticking noise

    Check out this how to... Especially the part about giving the hoses a squeeze. Check that both the top hose and bottom hose are both getting warm, if not there might be an air lock so giving them a squeeze can help To be honest, I've just done this from point 7 onwards and it's sorted it. 7 years ago... Jeez...

    Evolution of the civic

    The front shocks I ordered online were incorrect so my garage had to source the correct ones, I guess the shocks I got were for an EK / EJ ?

    It is 6th gen but obviously doesn't share the same platform as ek EJ of the same era Also 6th gen. So can cause confusion yeah.

    Drivers seat rocking issue

    Nice bit of info Kal, thanks for sharing this. I reckon with the age of these Civics now there will probably be quite a few having this issue.

    Thing is Simon, the Aerodecks are getting pretty rare now, even more so in VTi form so I'd say she is deffo worth saving. Old Tubs has a lot of history with you and Karen, and with Civic5 aswell! Think she's been on most if not all of our Scottish Civic5 meets? I had a good look under DD after the MOT guy said she was clean but there was signs of rust at that front foot well seam. I panicked and got stuck straight in, grinding out the rust before treating it then giving the whole floor a nice fresh coat of underseal. Still want to get back under there to do the rear section of floor and the whip the front wings off to do the inner wings, sill covers also coming off to have a look in there although I suspect she's pretty solid there going by the jacking points (they look perfect) aswell as the rear arches all being free from bubbles so far. It's a labour of love with these old Civic M's now. So glad to see the love being splashed on Tubs, she deserves it! Keep us updated on it mate

    b18c4 mb6 no vtec and ticking noise

    From what you've said so far, I'd put the faults down as: Ticking noise - Probably a sticky/dry valve or tappet. Could also be the gasket on the manifold blowing (You mention the manifold has been changed, I take it it's the exhaust mani and not the inlet?) Temp not getting up to operating temp - When you changed to the alloy radiator, did you fully bleed the cooling system? These can be a biatch to bleed thoroughly on the 1.8 B series.Also check the thermostat is working. These are cheap as chips to buy and easy to fit so might be worth while fitting a new one to be sure. Again, coolant system will need bled after changing thermostat. No VTEC - Unless engine is up to temp, you won't get VTEC (see No 2 above). Other causes for this are the VTEC solenoid itself is faulty, or it might just need the wee mesh filter inside it cleaned out. Very easy to do. Manifold stained - Again, this would most likely point to the gasket failing, letting the fumes out which causes staining. This would also give you a slight tick/puff noise. What grade of oil was put in at the oil change as these engines do require the correct grade, especially for the VTEC to engage properly. If the car has been sitting for any length of time, it may be worthwhile removing the main ignition lead so the engine won't start but will turn over. Let it turn over for a good 15 - 20 seconds to get the oil around all parts before it fires up as it will most likely have drained back down into the sump with the car sitting so long, meaning the top end will be dry initially. Let us know how you get on, and hope this helps. Dave

    b18c4 mb6 no vtec and ticking noise

    Started my mb6 the other day after a year of being stood, puff of white smoke from exhaust and back of engine for a few seconds which then cleared up, rattling noise coming from back on intake manifold which slows down when engine is warm so sounds like tick tick. The temp gauge will not go over 1/3 so its me thinking engine is not getting warm enough as vtec does not engage or is it because I have an alloy radiator. Forgot to mention I checked oil first thing before starting and there is enough, the oil is also 3 years old but only done 200 miles and also most importantly a few weeks ago I changed my manifold to aftermarket and noticed the last manifold port is stained in dried oily residue, not sure why. Can anyone help please because this car has been stood for 3 years and I want to bring it back on road this time and not leave it parked up for another year.
