5th gen OEM sunroof installed in a?what do you guys think of the 5th gen OEM sunroof?....should i install it or not?
5th gen OEM sunroof visor for a 5th gen sunroof.........i own a 5th gen hahah....you think it'll be worth it???....and how does it prevent rust bro?
my 5th gen has been losing oil like no ones business. It's around a quart for every 1000 miles or less. I don't use vtec! My compression score is 220, i passed my leakdown test with flying colors, there is no oil on the ground or around any of the seals or the oil pan. It has all been sealed or replaced prior to this. My valve stem seals are good as during deceleration no cloud of oil is seen. There is also no blue smoke seen on startup. Most importantly the motor was rebuilt less than 20,xxx miles ago. It has been suggested that the motor was rebuilt improperly and that although my piston rings may have been replaced the oil rings may not have and could be causing the oil to burn slowly.
I'm not sure what to do. Fixing this is pricey since I have put in all the money to fix all the leaks but I can't even go 3000 miles before my oil light comes on and I find out I'm short 4.5 quarts of oil. I'm currently running synthetic but I don't know if going down to conventional will increase the burn rate, debatable I know. What I'm considering is finding a short block or someone's leftovers and swapping blocks but is this really worth it? I could just refill the oil every time I fill up but it's such a pain.
Any suggestions? funding is limited so no jdm swaps please.
I think Pillar looks cleaner - if you were doing only 2 i'd say steering columngauges....on the pillar or above the radio? my first will be the a/f gauge
also...so i dont waste money what gauges should i buy? like n/a i need 1,2,3 and turbo i need 1,2,4,5. numbers are example of types.
Where would you put it though?
I saw the one guy (forgot who) who put it in his visor but I imagine that would be a pain in the ass to look at unless you sit real far back.
The wider spoke civic wheels a fellow member on here has on his 5th gen if you were curious - they're EXTREMELY close to the caliper to where it needs to get filed down. look up jblude01 or check for a black 5th gen with green rims in last years KOP meet pic thread or the past 2 years OBX meet pic threadsThose anyone think any of these RIMS would look better on my car than what I got now??
Mine is the one in the signature. A friend wanna trade and he let me choose any of the 2 sets .
Keep my black AP1 Wheels or sell them and get some 17" bronze circuit 10's? Getting a new car soon, still gonna keep the lude, but I'm not gonna break the bank on wheels.
Unless you've had someone get their car detailed there previously - no.since i have no idea how to claybar and wax my car if i take it to honda and get the $180 super duper ass raping special for them to completely detail my car is it worth it?
You're better off with the nightshade spray - regular auto glass tint is a real pain in the ass to form around the slight curve of the fogs. Unless you can find pre-cut pieces, just go with the spray.i am thinking of using window tint film on my fog lights (they are clear) to smoke them. i was wondering if i should just use niteshades tint spray instead of the tint? i am thinking of using 30%

If you just want sound, a 2.5" custom piped exhaust with your choise of resonator and muffler will be fine. I have an 18" vibrant resonator with a Greddy Evo2 muffler and it sounds good to me - but a little loud to some. So pick a less straight through design muffler if you don't want rasp or a high pitch.Just looking for an opinion on an exhaust setup (most likely everything from the header through to the tip) that fits my budget while actually being an upgrade...I know there's plenty of cheap options out there that are said to be good by the people who bought them and didn't want to admit that they really weren't that great, and then there's the best options which are a little more than I'd care to spend. Trying to find the most cost effective setup. Obviously it'll end up being over a grand to get some good parts together but 2 G's is more than I want to spend. This set up also ideally has to pass an emissions test called AirCare, which is similar to BAR in California, so a catalytic converter must be present.
So far I know I'm most likely going to start with the Vibrant header...I had my heart set on the Hytech Replica, but then when I saw that the Vibrants came back and were just over $500, I'm definitely gonna be going with that, which basically outlines my budget mind set. Willing to spend some cash and don't want the bottom of the barrel parts, but not looking to get the best of the best and fork out several G's. Basically, the "mid range". I know 3" exhaust assemblies are said to be best for the H22's...however I don't want a SUPER loud exhaust note if possible.
Currently, only engine performance mod to the car is a Type S intake. Down the road I'm also looking at getting a Euro-R manifold package from Rosko, Type S size throttle body, etc. so desirably the parts should be of good enough quality and function to compliment these components as well.
If you're a TLDR kinda guy just read the bold.
do a photo request of a silver 'lude with the sir interior - I know there are a few out there. I personally think that just having the carpet and center consul is kinda bleh.... should do at least the door panels to make it flow a little better. exterior color really doesn't matter IMO, not like things that low in the car are visible when looking from the outside. So it's all a personal choice kinda thingHow will a silver prelude look with the....red SiR...carpets.....including the red center console?.....Rest of the things will be OEM....including door panels and seats...
no post stealing at all man - it's a thread for opinions, all are welcome!^
sorry for the post steal but i think i like it
2 1/2" or 3" exhaust I am hearing good and bad what do you guys thinks?
i was thinking of getting a new exhuast put together ive done a searches on here and pz so far i have found part of the answer but i was thinking an apexi Noir muffler with a vibrant resonator and get custom piping from a local shop more than likely just 2 1/4" or 2.5''? any opinions on this set up? oh and where is a good place for depo black housing headlights i know ebay but which seller do yall recommend?
edit: also looking at getting a high flow cat as well.
