    Windscreen replacement

    Insurance will only replace with a UK spec windscreen, which is thicker and heavier than the JDM one. You can get a JDM windscreen from Honda still, but it'll be expensive so best to find a breaker.

    Trickle charger for dry cell battery

    Ahh that's great news, saves me buying a new one, thanks. The 5.0 has an AGM mode so I guess I need to use that, didn't realise that dry cell was essentially AGM.

    Trickle charger for dry cell battery

    Hi, I have a CTEK MSX 5.0 trickle charger for my oem halfords battery, but I'm thinking of upgrading to an Odyssey PC680... does anyone know if the trickle charger will still work with this type of dry cell battery? Thanks.

    Engine rev cut in corners

    I know the standard b-series suffer oil starvation on long corners with track tyres, and the AD08R is pretty decent... Do you have a baffled sump?

    How broken is my engine??

    Have you checked that the spark plugs are tight? I had a similar noise before and it was just a spark plug that had worked it's way loose, bouncing up and down in the hole. Might be worth checking as that's a super cheap fix!

    Building an EK9

    Hi and welcome to the forum! If I were you I would buy an ek9 shell and build it up from scratch. You have the money and the time, you just need the patience. These projects usually take a couple of years of research and effort and as it's a project car you won't be tempted to insure and drive...

    New user - EK9 race car

    Looking good! It looks more like you have an ek3 than an ek9 though... what does the vin plate say? Not that it matters with that level of modifications :) what engine are you running?

    BEST Grippy tyres

    For a road car AD08R's are my choice, decent in this icey weather too. Last about 8k miles (just commuting) before changing.

    Rusty roof issues on my Champ white fn2

    Hey! I had this issue on my FN2 last year, it's problem with the way the windscreen mount was designed. Micro vibrations in the rubber wear away the paint and let the elements in, causing the rust. If I remember correctly Honda actually extended the corrosion warranty for this particular issue...

    OBD1 Chips in UK

    Hello! Not sure who can make you a chip, but I may have some useful info on the JDM map/chip. It's worth noting that there are two different types of JDM B18CR (96 and 98 spec), and therefore two different maps. So it might be worth finding out which spec engine you have so you can match up the...

    Difference between PR3-1,PR3-2, and PR3-3??

    I've heard the number represents the casing it was created from in the factory, so no physical differences really. There's also a PR3-4. For the ITR, the best looking heads were chosen and green paint was added behind the distributor before being sent for port and polish! Not sure if the same...

    Skunk2 Exhaust manifold

    You have to remove your engine stiffener to fit the S2 Alpha, which means your flywheel will be exposed to the elements! I've had a Mugen before and currently have a Tegiwa (Toda rep), can recommend both.
