  1. Does anyone have experience using Royal Purple Synchromax MT Fluid?

    I used it with my SR20DET transmission. No issues.
  2. Civic Type R at the track, goods and bads! Let's share our experience.

    I was going to run distilled water with Water Wetter. Most of the Water Wetter type products have built-in anti corrosive additives. They should be safe all year round in climates with above sub-freezing temperatures. Swap out with Honda fluid if engine warranty work is needed.
  3. Warranty Experience @ Local Honda Franchise

    The CTR was sold today with ~4,750 miles for $34k. Pretty impressive residual value. The overheating at Summer HPDE's was annoying but I really enjoyed driving it on smooth, twisty roads. I've always had a soft spot for hot hatches and love the interior space. It wasn't an easy decision. The...

    That's awesome. Glad you found a good dealership. The customer experience is a direct reflection on the GM.

    Thank you for posting your observations and including a pic. I'm going to follow-up with the DPSM so he's aware this isn't a one-off.
  6. Emission and rev match system problem

    Nope, it came back. Replacing the harness fixed it.
  7. Brake Input PID Needed for Software

    Never found it, but I believe there's a formula to approximate the data using GPS and the Accelerometer. It was either Racechrono or TorquePro that allowed for a graphical representation of the output. I tried several PID's but the results were not consistent. It annoyed the heck out of me...

    The DPSM spoke with some of the local stores about getting me in a 2019. He couldn't guarantee anything and let the Sales Managers know I was looking at 2019 CTR's. One store offered $32k for my car ($2k below NADA clean trade-in for the low mileage) and $1k under MSRP on the new sale. Another...

    Your unique perspective from past roles is appreciated for this discussion. Based on my experience I fear that owners participating in diving schools will receive extra skepticism in addition to examination. I'm very concerned the Honda Tech Line specialist misdiagnosed the situation and the...

    Unfortunately, this is true. If Honda corporate denied your claim due to modification, they will flag your VIN for all future repairs. If it wasn't for my DPSM, I'd be consulting with an attorney.

    I didn't have those issues, but in addition to the electrical/harness issue, my car had some paint defects from the factory. The DPSM said white shows up more frequently than other colors.

    I drove it for another 45 minutes today and no issues. It may finally be fixed...
  13. Warranty Experience @ Local Honda Franchise

    The store's Tech was able to press on a harness section attached to the boost solenoid plug, causing an electrical short, keeping the selenoid open & producing an over-boost code. I'm just speculating, but the harness was very taught from the factory and the plug was not fully secure, so...

    The DPSM and I spoke in person for an hour. He cleaned up a lot of the service history and provided me a copy. It basically says that the suspected ECU modification was misdiagnosed. Everyone was apologetic I received the refund check for the ECU and turned in my original. They installed the...

    The DPSM called yesterday evening after leaving a 3 hour meeting at the local store. A big part of it was the GM trying to get reimbursed for a ton of additional labor for working with Tech Line on the CTR. The store's Tech was able to press on a harness wire attached to the boost solenoid...

    Yes We still need to figure out and agree on the right path for this one.
  17. Warranty Experience @ Local Honda Franchise

    I don't recall the exact description, but the GM called yesterday and stated that they needed to replace a boost control manifold sensor. The part would be installed today and I should get the car back. The GM and DPSM tried calling me today, but I was not available when they called. I called...
  18. I replaced my Pads and my rotors

    Correct As far as torque spec on rotor screws, its usually 2-3 ft lbs.
  19. Car throwing codes and won’t start after Gentex Mirror
