  1. https://www.ebay.com/itm/Speed-Air-Intake-System-fur-Honda-Civic-MA8-9-MB1-2-3-4-6-8-9-MC1-2-Aluminium-Sp/133594900313?hash=item1f1ae06759:g:xtQAAOSwwiFfx7rq https://www.ebay.com/itm/Air-Intake-System-fur-Honda-Civic-VTI-MB6-MC2-Sportluftfilter/363143693000?epid=18041789671&hash=item548d0d02c8:g:E5YAAOSwdGpfkZYS I found those from ebay. Do they seem any good or just bad for your engine?
  2. I was looking to do this but haven't yet. Bought parts a year ago. I haven't had the original air intake system on this car since i got it so i'm not fully sure how the connections go. There are two small air pipes coming from the exhaust manifold if im right so which one goes to valve cover hole and which goes to air intake pipe? I'm running a filter in the valve cover since that's how i got the car. So im not too familiar with the original connections.
  3. That would make sense. How about 97-01 Prelude? Someone has done it in poland i guess. Changed the steering column or strait swap?
  4. The three spoke steering wheel from HRV looks pretty good. My current one is wearing out a bit. Would it fit to MB6? SRS airbag compatibility? Number of splices? Safety of different air bag?
  5. Anyone here familiar with gravity exhaust products from ebay? Good quality or cheap chinese rip of? Found 4-1 manifold with good price. Cant find toyosport manifolds for mb6 anymore. Im looking for that Subaru rumbling sound some get with 4-1 manifolds in their mb6. Currently I get mostly droning low sounds. Need some Grunt to it without rice. Which One is better for b18c4 overall. 4-1 or 4-2-1 figuration? Considering the long gearing of s9b as well...
  6. I'm looking to buy new headlights for my MB6. Does it need to have the electric motor adjustment? I can mostly find ones without motor. Bosch and magneti marelli makes ones with electric adjustment but havent seen others. And those can be expensive... Will there be problems with MOT with regular headlights? Would be a lot cheaper to find.
  7. Does chipped/tuned ECU make things better or worse with emissions and flow/back pressure of the exhaust?
  8. I've also had issues with emissions. This time it was broken distributor cap but there has been problems earlier too. Cat has been changed once. If anyone is having oil leak/consumption issues then it could be worth to change VTEC solenoid gaskets, all of them. Especially the big one with the filter gets bad in a long period of time. I've been wondering if aftermarket exhausts and manifolds can affect emissions? Stock ECU may not be able to handle it? Can't cope with the flow change etc.? Increased heat in the engine bay with aftermarket manifolds? Stock ones have heat shields and all that...
  9. Is 90 degree turn okay? too Much? 45 degree too little? I've seen some of those locally. Is 75mm diameter too big or doable?
  10. Same thing with my MB6. Water gets in the left side like in your second picture. Next to that white "ventilation" thingy.

    Type r

    Does DC2 integra steering wheel fit MB6? I've read they do but does the airbag work/connect? Also i've come across Honda Logo GA3 srs (1998-2001) steering wheel. Would that fit? I wonder what kind of steering column it uses. Could it be eg civic based or ek for example? How many different "specs" honda has i wonder.
  12. Where did you get/buy that plastic L-curve? Dimensions? Does everything else fit normally to MB6?
  13. Where do i find part 91319-PR3-003 the vtec solenoid oil pressure o-ring gasket? I looked online and found only some from US, Japan and Russia. I'd like to find from Eu region. Tax and customs stuff... 36172-P08-015 and 15825-P08-005 also needed but those i can find but would be ideal to find everything from the same shop. Give me links please where to buy. I live in Finland, not in UK. I suspect my VTEC solenoid is causing oil burning/spilling. Thats why im asking. Anyone here changed the gaskets before? I heard its common problem with some b-series engines.
  14. Best prize/perfomance/durability/quality ratio? I've heard Blue print makes good aftermarket parts for Japanese vehicles especially. Should be better or same as OEM they claim. Ferodo? TRW? Delphi? Bosch? Also should you ever use different pads with different disc brand? Or different combo in front vs rear axle?
  15. Has anyone here bought new aftermarket front fenders for their MB6? Or just got used ones from scrap yard etc. ? I was wondering if the aftermarket ones fits directly or if there are any seam gaps, if the headlight and bonnet fit to it properly etc. Things that can go wrong. Diederichs makes them but couldn't find those. I got myself Polcar ones. https://catalog.polcar.com/#!KatKatalogGlowny/fender-front-381102/492184 Should i try fitting them first before getting them painted at a shop? I was thinking of putting them on later in spring. But could get them painted already. Any body
