HeyHow about powder coat or painting the valve cover. I am looking to do that but not familiar with reinstalling the cover in terms of Honda bond, order of torquing or torque amount. I was thinking to buy an OEM replacement so I didn’t have downtime. I wonder also if there is a difference in benefits to powder coating or high heat paint. I’m getting closer to being done performance mods and now I am looking to do some engine bling. Cheers.
I think i'm dropped about 1.5 inches all around, I have about a 1 finger gap. I don't rub at all with my current setup.Love the build man. Wondering how much you are dropped on those tein coils and how do you like them?
Looking at a coilover upgrade down the line and I see they include the cancelling unit for adaptive dampening so I'm interested in them
Thanks for the detailed response man! Yeah I definitely want to go coilovers with a flush look, I really like the fitment of your setup, I was previously considering 18x9+35. Definitely need a set of coils good for street and day to day driving as that's where most of my driving is. Will definitely look into the edfc controller, I actually didn't even know they offered something like that. That will definitely save a lot of headaches and time hahahI think i'm dropped about 1.5 inches all around, I have about a 1 finger gap. I don't rub at all with my current setup.
Tires are 245/40 on 18x9.5+38 so the slight stretch clears the fender line and never had issues. Front has about a negative 1.5 degree camber and rears about negative 2.5 degrees of natural camber (no camber arms). I do want to go with a slightly more aggressive tire/wheel setup so will be raising the car up when the time comes. I still have about 1 inch of drop available.
Overall I absolutely love the Teins, amazing for street driving (i haven't tested them on the track yet but feel they may be a little on the softer side)
I highly recommend you getting the EDFC controller and motors to adjust damping on the fly, you can see POST 101 for details on that. Main reason i recommend this is because the rear damper adjustment is practically impossible to get to unless you jack up the car/take the wheel off even then it might be difficult because of the location.
I have no ADS lights thanks to the included cancellers! I actually didn't know they came with the coils until i received the package. So added bonus haha! Everyone that has driven my car speaks highly of them!
