  1. Last few days…

    Gave it back me more good drive and pulled out the Z for a final photo-op and a drive to make sure it’s up to snuff. Its been garaged since my last deployment… something like 2-3 months. I’ll be pulling the LED headlights (same as what the Odyssey uses and I kept the halogens)… wireless charger...
  2. This is why you don’t let old cars sit...

    So I just got back from sea a couple days of days ago. My 300zx had a problem I didn’t have time to track down right before I left that turned out to be one of the wastegates that got tweaked and was supposedly tip top. A few hundred bucks my old lady spent on it and getting it back and forth...

  4. Swapped my V2 for a 1.2... trying to get going again.

    @KTuner ... you'd figure I'd know what I'm doing by now. ;) So... I'm sitting in my car, device running. 1.2 flashes blue rapidly. Connect to laptop and get popup screen to lock to said ECU. Click check box and yes. Device keeps looping... and that pop up box keep reappearing. Light goes to...
  5. Question concerning 1.2/V2 in-car usage

    Want to confirm before I look to do a 1 for 1 swap for a 1.2 for my V2: The 1.2 can be left in the OBD2 port w/o any wires and through HondaHack and TunerView display realtime date in the headunit via a Bluetooth connection? Also... it doesn't protrude such that it's still in the way for...
  6. What in the fresh hell is this in-dash rattle? ?

    It’s 2020 and I learned how to upload videos to that newfangled YouTube just for this! ? There’s a noise... sounds like a damn playing card in the spokes of a bike. I figured it was just something stuck in the blower motor which is (relatively) easy to get to. It’s independent of whether the...
  7. Recommended sound insulation?

    I’ve got some time off and figure I may pull the interior of the car apart to hunt down some rattle gremlins. I’ve got spots in the doors... at the A-pillars and somewhere under the dash around/behind the blower motor... but it isn’t the motor itself. I’ve spent a while looking at threads but I...
  8. Finally going to make my old Z not look like a beater

    Well, after more money I’d care to admit put into the “go” for my old Z over the 6 or 7 years I’ve have it... I finally have an appt to get it repainted. Have a set of good condition stock rims I might slap on with new rubber or keep these imperfect late-350z rims and stick some Indy 500s on...
  9. Civic Si vs Cadillac CTS VSport

    I’ve been contemplating jumping ship for a little while have have seen mid-201Xs cars in the $20-25k range which seems like a good value at this point given their age. Curious if anyone had owned a VSport or, hell... even just a CTS and can provide their feelings in how an Si sedan to a CTS...
  10. Been riding my buggy lately...

    Figured I’d share: The weather been nice and have been riding my old buggy a lot lately. Its mostly for just running down muddy trails to some fishing holes near my house. These things are great though for those wanting to tinker on the cheap. Swapping cams (they’re under $20 each)...
  11. 1.5T Snap, crackle pop tune for a mere $5k (kind of a joke)

    https://www.imwtuned.com/store/p17/Ricer.html Just tooling around and saw this. I see it for what I think it is... a “If you want it... here... it’ll cost this or STFU and leave me alone” tune. I still got a kick out of it. It might be a little old and I may be late to the show, but I hadn’t...
  12. So what other forums are y’all into?

    Just curious. Out if the past year there’s this one... I’ll do a little at Savageshooters. There is a cast bullets one I’ve done a bit on and likely will again. I’ve been on and off and on Blade and Badger a bit too. Odyforums occasionally. I did the 9th gen forums, Club RSX, Z31...
  13. Random small engine repair question...

    So I had an issue with my mower a couple weeks back, right before I left town on vacation and looked into it today. Here's what happened: Mowing my neighbors yard after mine... he throws me some $$$ and I try to be neighborly. I went over a spot that has a few roots at the same height I've been...
  14. OEM summers vs UHP offerings

    Ok, so I've been doing some reading as I know my OEM summers, now at 17k miles are through 1/2 their life and wanted to dial in their replacement. Indy 500s have been high up there for their cost/performance and have gotten some good noise both here and on other forums. For nostalgia sake, I ran...
  15. How do you know you married the right person?

    So I picked up my Si after the dealer worked on the A/C to try to fix a noise it's been making under warranty. My wife and I noticed they had 2 CTRs sitting in front... one white and one red (first ones we've ever seen too!). She actually pointed over at one and said, "Hey that's a type R...
  16. Throttle Body Polish/Port Matching

    Has anyone seen how out throttle bodies look or how they're matched up to the manifold? Just curious. I didn't know if it was rough/had casting lines that had room for improvement. I'm not looking to try and go larger and lose velocity... just didn't know if anyone has taken a look at them. In...
  17. Man... these pads look like they'd of lasted another 5 years.

    I was out changing the rotors and pads on the Odyssey. I did the rears a couple days ago and those pads we're about 2/3 worn. The fronts are probably only 1/2 worn. Not bad after over 5 years and right at 70,000 miles I suppose, considering what a heavy bastard it is. I'm hoping these Akebonos...
  18. Ktuner 23# ethanol enable vs TSP stage 1

    I've been looking around at the next mod. I've been running TSP Stage 1 for 6 months and like it a lot, but I'm getting the itch again. I've looked at the shapes of the dynos and see they're very similar. I have little doubt the massive torque on tap on TSP stage 2 will overwhelm my...
  19. Stock/near stock etune/dyno tunes?

    I was just curious if anyone had a dyno/edyno or remembers a thread that has one of a near stock (stock turbo, all emissions equipment intact, intakes ok) Si with a custom tune/etune? I'm mainly interested in the shape of the curve from 4000 RPM to redline. I have and really like my TSP...
  20. Laptop recommendations...

    No better place to get laptop advice than a car forum: So I was looking at a new laptop and was curious if anyone had experience, good or bad, on the Dell XPS line. I was looking at variants what had the 6 core 8750h and sticking with the 1080 screen because at 15", I don't care to spend more...
