  1. You'd be surprised how much sellers can't distinguish between the code 95-02, and 88-95. I've had the exact thing happen to me in the form of wheel bearings, hubs, arms and windshield. Luckily nothing from the engine yet and I've been lucky enough to be able to return back some of them.
  2. Being the b*****d child of a Rover and honda hybrid, it does seem to throw most brands off quite a bit. You wouldn't believe how many parts I've bought and were meant to fit but didn't actually fit.
  3. That's just bad service. So basically the clutch was completely different. It would seem that there are some brands that are advertising their clutch kits for all engines in the series even if it'll only fit a few of them. Thanks, I'll be avoiding ADL clutches from now on.
  4. Yes it would seem there's quite a few Kits just for the D-series engines. The exedy catalog seemed rather promising and straight to the point, and using the information they give me, I'm doing my searches. What differences did you encounter?
  5. So after much more research I've found that the 1.4 engines require a larger flywheel I think (212mm) compared to 1.5 or 1.6 engine. It would seem like that specific clutch flywheel in a kit is also rarer, making my options smaller. Might have to settle for the exedy kit, or some shady ebay kit after all.
  6. I had that issue. It was something worse. One of my brake cables had gotten cut (front right disk brake) (not sure if intentional or not), and I noticed brake oil was very low during my morning checkups, I filled up the oil and the handbrake light went back to normal, then slowly it started coming back on, flickering slowly until it just stayed on permanently regardless of handbrake position. After realising the problem with my brake cables, had the cable replaced, and handbrake light went back to normal until this day. That was a few months ago. I did try to adjust the handbrake cable back then and that did nothing. But this isn't a for sure answer guys, this is just from my experience.
  7. I found them, RPC sounds quite good, thanks. I think I might get the stage 1 after all. I haven't boosted the engine yet, but I have some engine mods planned.
  8. My current clutch is already rather hard but my problem is I've gotten used to it, I really don't want to switch back to those soft clutches. I'm not looking for track tier clutches really, just something street tier maybe? If not I'll consider OEM after all
  9. Hi guys, So my gears started becoming harder to change lately, and there's been some strange whining noises in between certain gears. My mechanic has advised me that the Release bearing in the clutch might be the cause. So instead of changing the bearing, I'm thinking of getting a whole new clutch kit while I'm at it, and after some ebay and forum browsing I've seen alot of Brands such as the famous Exedy and other brands that I don't recognize such as CG Motorsports, Black diamond, and so on. I'm maybe considering getting a Competition stage 2 clutch since I'm always burning through my current (high revs) (also probably the cause of my current situation). So any of you guys have experience with clutches that can advise me on a good one to get?
  10. Ok so it's basically a replacement bonnet, Headlights, and Bumper. I read somewhere that the construct holding up the bumper might need to be changed too? Couldn't find the thread. You got a link?
  11. You think? I was considering getting my hood changed as it's currently 25% quickfill. And I like that wider body front bumper on the mb6.
  12. I would like to know if it will be possible to fit on the MB6 Hood and front bumper onto my MA8. I've noticed there are significantly more parts for the MB6, and then more there's the front lip that I think I wouldn't be able to put onto my MA8. I'm worries there might be conflict with the lights or other parts of the body. And that MB6 bumper is quite sexy. Pictured my white ma8, someone elses (who's probably here on civic5) mb6
  13. I've been told that my MA8 edu is OBD2 but I haven't been able to find the OBD2 connector. Has anyone found it or do we just not have one?
