    Cars for Sale section only for Members

    But they need to see it first to reply or PM someone selling the car in the first place. I completely understand what you are saying and respect that, I just wanted to ask if there is another way the advert can be seen so that they have a reason to create a login to then make further enquiries

    Cars for Sale section only for Members

    Is there no way of allowing guests to view posts but not post there? If they then join to post on something they have seen or a new post ensure that the 50 post rule is still in place for that section. Most members will already have a car so seeing one for sale is more of a interest rather then...

    HID kit recomendations for an EP3

    Novsight here. Around 30 quid from Amazon. I'm prefacelift so high and low beam. They can be a bit pricy but should last ages! Get ones with heatsinks built in rather than fans as the fans can fail and then the fitting overheat. Another thing to consider is the fact LEDs can give off a...

    Pahahaha "vajazzle"?! Cheeky bugger. Just because you get to enjoy a supercharger and vtec at the same time doesn't mean you can make fun of us mere mortal folk. Oh btw you can get as low as 5000k on leds. Mine are 6000k :P

    Burning oil

    The internet seems to suggest that there is an oil seal ring in the impeller shaft that is leaking oil to the discharge pipe and oil is entering the cylinder head chamber. You might have to start checking in the throttle body and inlet manifold for oil. The people that fitted the super charger...

    Just to close this one off. At the weekend the leaks were resolved and the car now sounds 10x better than before with no farting!! Less vibrations in the cabin too. Thanks for the pit usage Norv, it made the job much easier :)

    The exhaust is fine I'm sure ;). I'm away on Saturday day time but might be back in the evening. If not we could meet up on Sunday? As you say, I'm sure things just need a refit and smear with gasket gunk :P

    Blowing/Farting Exhaust

    Cheers guys. The plan on Sunday (weather permitting) will be to take the whole exhaust off including the cat and inspect for cracks. The exhaust should be fine but the cat is the original and currently on 136K miles so it's getting on. If all is well I will replace all gaskets and use some...

    05 civic ep3 type r cold start noise

    Sounds like a loose chain tensioner to me and the chain is slapping about until the oil pressure has built up. Does it happen if you run the car for a bit and then restart it?

    Brake pedal goes to floor overnight... any ideas?

    Good advice. If the pressure suddenly drops without warning while driving then you will only be left with a handbrake.... That could take a while to think about and then stop and by then someone will be dead or your car written off.

    Civic Type R EP3 TURBO/SUPERCHARGER?

    Dude dont do it..... replace the mount with a new one and put the inserts in that. The inserts will not do a proper job if you put them in a split mount i promise you. I assume its the front one that has gone which is pretty common. Mine went not long ago and after having a good look around...
  76. Azazl187

    Please be aware that those inserts will make the cabin rattles even worse. Be prepared to start inserting foam to places where it rattles like the steering wheel airbag attachment. Some people are fine with cabin rattles.... i personally hate them!

    Vibration/rattling noise at 3-4k? Drive shaft heat shield

    The thing weighs a ton and normally the fixing holes are rusted right out so you cant really fit a new one to them. Ive had mine removed for a few years and ive never noticed a heat issue from that part of the car when driving. I dont mind losing heatshields personally.
