  1. Do you have/use a car cover?

    Hello 👋 The girl and I recently obtained a new house in the LA area, and as of right now the house doesn't have a garage. We do plan on building one within the next 1 - 2 years but, in the meantime I was looking to purchase something to protect my car from the LA sun/heat. I work from home and...
  2. Brake Info thread

    Still working on eliminating my squeal. I have a new set of pad shims that are set to arrive Thursday. Hopefully those help. But just for clarification, are you saying you had to drill out the holes on the actual calipers themselves? Or on the car where the adapter attaches? Red or blue circle...
  3. Brake Info thread

    Did you ever figure this out? I have the exact same noise coming from my kit.
  4. Intercooler install

    I think it's definitely possible. I did it thisbpast weekend with some homemade ramps. I'm also lowered though. As long as you can get to the plastic clips and screws on the bottom you should be fine.
  5. Boost Leak? Whistling Spark Plugs?

    Thanks for the reply. I had a 1.5hr drive to my work site today with no issues and from my occasional glance I was hitting my target boost. I'll review the log when I get home, but I think we're all good!
  6. Boost Leak? Whistling Spark Plugs?

    No sir it is not.
  7. Boost Leak? Whistling Spark Plugs?

    Hey guys, Just installed a PRL intercooler and charge pipe kit over the weekend. While testing it one of the pipes popped off so I decided to make a boost leak tester. I tested the system and pressurized it up to 25psi. Right around 25psi there begins to be a whistle that comes from the spark...
  8. What did you do to your Civic today? (II)

    Was only able to install the PRL Intercooler, Charge Pipes and ETL CVT Cooler. There was a mixup with my BBK rotors so I gotta wait for the right ones there.

    Should be a fun weekend!
  10. Squeaking Front End - I'm Lost

    Oh wow, just posted yesterday! XD I'm sure it will come in handy, thanks!
  11. Squeaking Front End - I'm Lost

    A follow up on this issue: I heard back from Tein and they asked me to send them some measurements to double check the coilover settings. They let me know that there was slightly too much preload on my springs, so I adjusted these but still had squeaky suspension. I investigated a little...
  12. Precord96's FK7 - 2020 EX Build

    How did the CVT cooler install go? I'm thinking about getting one but don't know if I have the skills/tools to do it all myself.
  13. Squeaking Front End - I'm Lost

    Still waiting on a response, it'll probably be a day or two. But I was doing some more research in the meantime and I saw on a few other forums that people with similar issues (usually different brand coilovers) fixed it by removing the spring "silencer" at the bottom. Any thoughts on this...
  14. Squeaking Front End - I'm Lost

    That's pretty much what I've been doing the last 2 weeks haha! So much so my average MPG has dropped from 32 to 30.
  15. Squeaking Front End - I'm Lost

    Ok yeah, I just sent their California office an email laying out everything I've done and asking for suggestions. Here's hoping they have a solution or can help me get non-squeaky ones if it is the struts. :bow:
  16. Squeaking Front End - I'm Lost

    It's set to the same settings as the tein manual has it, I only adjusted the ride height after setting it back
  17. Squeaking Front End - I'm Lost

    Tightened up it's still there. Less often but on medium to large dips/bumps in the road it's there.
  18. Squeaking Front End - I'm Lost

    It's sort of hard for me to tell as it only happens at speed so it's pretty quick. I am able to reproduce a similar sound by jumping on the door well of the car and it occurs on rebound then. Juat tried taking it on a 10min drive with the softest damper setting and it's still there.
  19. Squeaking Front End - I'm Lost

    Hey all, about two months ago I installed my Tein Flex Z coilovers along with new 18x8.5 +35 wheels wrapped in 245/40/18 Michelins... All was good except for a creaking noise from the front passenger side. I figured this might just be the springs settling in. Fast forward a month and a half and...
  20. Does anyone know what this wheels are called?

    Could be these or another similar wheel.
