What Did You Do To Your Car Today?

Recommended Posts


New brake pads going in the front today. Bendix ultimate's lasted all of 6 months.

New diff is leaking so that's going in for a new seal tomorrow.

Ordered a received some 1" weld on Push on hose fittings. Dual Bosch BOV setup coming up shortly. Also received some -6 Weld on fittings to convert the stock fuel rail into dual feed/centre return.

Plan is too quieten down the ridunkulous noise when getting off the throttle. I'm running a nizzer setup so the BOV's will be mounted just in front of the TB and vented back into Turbo inlet pipe.

Dual feed rail is E85 Prep and also so I can use all the hosing I have that is setup for the POS billet rail that was on the car.

Hey NVT, where did you get the replacement crossover bolts from? I've cracked one of mine too.

Seems like everything I want to do with my car you have done haha. I'd done a few of them but will probably do a full oil drop soon (have the filter still from last car, never changed it - just need the oil).

Full Rain-X on Monday evening on all windows, re-installed spoiler, hoping to do some vinyl wrapping soon as well :)

Well that's fair enough. Isn't two BOV's overkill though? Wouldn't 1 suffice?

Same with the rail. What's the reason for going duel feed instead of just banging some big injectors in.

1 inst enough to stop the flutter when lifting off @ 20lb's.

I'm already running ID1000's. I prefer dual entry as I will be running dual pumps for E85

Nope happy with the 1000's. Not really chasing a figure. It'll make what it makes. Just want a solid set up that can be belted when ever I feel like it without any doubt that it will hold up.

Yeah it was only installed last week but it was second hand and had been sitting at dynomite for a bit I think. When it was sitting there it seemed all good but with a bit of use its been weeping from the passenger side seal.

This morning I walked outside, looked at my XR - sighed - then got in my civic daily and went to work.

Repeat for many days and that's about all I've done to my car lately...lol

I do the same but then get into a golf and go to work. I feel for you in a civic.

PS: quote because new page.

Hey Pat, I saw you were on the civic forum and sell coilovers and stuff for them.

I'm looking at an EG for a daily. Got any comments on it?

Awesome sh*t the exterior stuff! Just need to redo the interior stuff again. Some reason the heater is now making it foggy, need AC on most of the time if I have heater on. Or a window down a little lol. Its not a heap of fog and only happens when the cabin is warm and up to temp. Shame I did alllll the windows and not one to start off with lol

The yellow RainX bottle is for exterior and the black one for interior.

Not a fan on the black one as I tried it once and that was enough for me as I have noticed BA to BF tend to fog the windscreen as normal.

Pulled mine out of the driveway and might polish her today ready for friday ;) jokes lol

Yeh I got the right bottles on the right side of the window. I'll give it another go using cotton cloths and see how it goes. Otherwise just ditch it and stick with just doing the outside

I have an EK, it does the job and costs around 50 per week which is close to 600km consistently in traffic.

I've fitted Konis and a couple of bushes, a few tweaks here and there. It goes well, handles well and its super reliable.

I must be getting old, but there is no way I would put coilovers in a civic for a daily - would be noisy and rough as guts! lol

I use the yellow one only shy, I highly recommend.....

Clean all windows must be clean and dry or the rainx will not work as effectively.

Use a paper towel folded (use the same fold on all the windows) pour some onto windscreen wait till it hazes then go over this process 3 times.....

If you have clean dry paper towel (a spray bottle with clean water spray some on the hazed areas) then wipe till haze has gone and clean again with another dry clean cloth to avoid and smudges.

This is the only way it works and every 3 weeks do the same process and you will find that your wiper blades go allot further in life as you don't use them as much caues the RainX does all the hard work.

As time goes on you will find re-applying Rainx every 5-6 weeks, its like a polish on your glass.

That's pretty much what I wanted to hear. I like the look of the EG over the EK so that's the only reason I'm going that way.

Hoping to find an injected one around $3000.

I'm still young so I don't mind coilovers in my dailys :P

I just want a car that's better on juice and with better handling than the falcon as it's a bit of a boat.
