    Oil, some basic advice.

    I'm not a mechanic whatsoever, but personaly, I don't cheap out on oil. Keep using good quality oil, even when it burns a bit of it. Check if it burns oil when you'll step on it, or when you let you foot off the gaspedal. If its with pttm(pedal to the metal) it's you're rings, if its when you'll let of the gas, it's most likely the stemseals. About the gearbox oil, I'd use the MTF 3, just because the most Honda guys which drive them a long period allways tend to us it, but I'm no expert at this

    Oil cooler install help

    An update on my install. I'm still running the 2 sandwich plates. I've had a leak around the sensors I've had installed (oilpressure, oil temp before the cooler, oil temp after the cooler). so I've used som eteflon tape to stop the leaking. Works like a charm now!

    Steering tie rod

    Eg/dc2/ek tie rods don't fit. I've found the oem partnumber(53010SR3010) and ordered the right one on Autodoc.com. Ours are with an M14 thread and the other ones are with an M12 thread.

    Talk to me about power gains

    Turbo is the way to go for serious power gains. It's probably better if you tell us what you want. There are multiple ways to gain power, but also at different prices.

    Oil cooler install help

    Hi George, I'm in the same possition as you are right now. How did you've achieved it to mount it properly? What I've done for now is used a 2nd sandwichplate which i've already had, an placed that one on the other one, so there was any room to mount the oilinglines to the cooler. I've still have a leak, which for some reason cannot be found where it's from.

    Different engineloom on replaced b18c4

    Guys, Thanks a lot for all the quick responses. Ive found the problem. The enginloom was just the same as my old one. It was just a kind of white guide thingy that was still stuck in the "new" loom which still needed to be removed! I'll try to still upload some pictures to help clarify the problem. Cheers
  11. Hi there, My name is Koen and im from the Netherlands. I've just replaced my broken down b18c4 (broken valve kissed the cylinder) which went in like a charm. As after fitted it in ik discovered that the engine loom plug is just a tiny bit different then my old engine loom. The plug thats got me a headache is 1of the plug near the co-drivers side(probably drivers side for most uk drivers becuase its a lhd car). One of the plugs had got a little white peg which isn't fitted on the other engine. I've looked at the colour and lining of the cables and they are all in the same plug, but they cant be connected because of the little white peg which really frustrates me. Are here more people who had this problem and if so how was this problem fixed? Personaly I was thinking of removing the peg of just completely swap the loom over, but that would probably be kind of a big job. I could use some info from someone who fixed this problem or someone who knows how to fix it. Thank you sincerely Koen
