    EP3 Changing gear

    My ep3 was a bit of a git to get in gear, especially in vtec. Clutch bite was about an inch off the floor, usually two signs you need to change the clutch. If you do, it's about £450 including parts, best to get oem 3 piece clutch.

    Fwd traction in 300bhp cars

    My non charged ep3 would spin up a bit but with similar weight I guess the increased torque of the TT doesn't help.

    How does the fk2 and fk8 cope with the power being fwd? My TT (fwd) has F1 asy5 tyres and struggles to get the power down.

    The Recaro seats are standard, that's a premier edition. Get the oil changed and stick some 5w40 millers or fuchs fully synthetic in, particularly on that mileage. I see it has a tegiwa induction kit too. Random tyres are not uncommon, some people just don't want to spend on premium tyres.

    No worries Dave, I knew what you meant. I was just adding how much the RRC added :D
  50. Flashy

    Hey fn2 owners looking for a little advice please

    The RRC added 17bhp on my EP3. I think the RSP isn't too bad for an oem manifold so the gains probably won't be quite the same as what mine achieved.
  51. Flashy

    Hey fn2 owners looking for a little advice please

    The balancer shaft delete will net you 10 bhp but isn't cheap. If you're happy with 220 to 240 bhp then also consider an RRC intake manifold. Team Dynamics pro race 1.2 wheels are a good choice, not overly expensive but only weigh around 8.5kg. Camber bolts, eibach pro kit springs and a fast...
  52. Flashy

    Tuning - does it make a real difference?

    It reduces the slightly sluggish feeling leading up to vtec. I did induction, RRC intake manifold, exhaust and it made 231bhp. You can feel the difference and I didn't even decat it. Fast road set up is a good idea, and some decent brakes.

    The white markings on the cam sprockets are from factory. The silicone as you call it is honda bond, every time you place the gasket there are 4 points that need a bead of Honda bond. Chain, tensioner and guide plus fitting will probably set you back £600.
