    EK9 intake tube vs 00 CRV intake tube

    Hi there. The 2000 Civic Si in the U.S. shares the B16 engine and has the same chassis dimensions. The intake tube part number for the Civic Si is #17228-P2T-J00. Also note that the last three digits are "J00" meaning is a Japan part. The 2000 Honda CRV part number is #17228-PHK-000...

    CRV non vtec engine swap?

    None of that would work. Research what your asking on the internet to learn more and all will be clear to you.

    CRV non vtec engine swap?

    Well, its not a direct bolt on. A couple of the intake manifold securing studs wont fit the in the B16 intake manifold. So you do loose some clamping force. The coolant port on the b16 manifold is located in a slightly different location, so its common to cut the corner if the intake out and...

    CRV non vtec engine swap?

    Ahh, well then....you could use a B16 intake manifold - but you would need to cut and modify the 'coolant' area of the manifold. But the intake ports and stud holes line and bolt right up. As far as the exhaust manifold, even any B18C's would be a direct bolt on. At least on the engine side. Or...

    CRV non vtec engine swap?

    Swapping B20 into your 'EK'... Use an intake manifold from a B18B (94-97/98-01 Integra) non-vtec engine. B18B headers also 'fit' - tho the bolt pattern at the catalytic converter is off set. Running a 'matching' ecu with a manual transmission would be ideal, but using an ecu from the same B18B...

    B16A2 eg/ej loom interchangeability

    92-95 (OBD1) Civics have a different wiring harness style than the 96-00 (OBD2) Civics. Easiest way to swap the D16Z6 into the EJ chassis is to use the existing EJ engine harness on the D16Z6 - then modify that harness to fit the Z6 engine sensors. You would then also need to buy (or make) a...

    I've never had any problems with any set of Ferrea Springs/Retainers. I've ran two sets of them personally, on two separt different builds. Upgrading your valve springs is a worth while investment- keep those valves closed when they need it most at the high R's, even with stock cams. The...

    B20 Swap is dead?

    A friend just swapped a B20 in his EG- got used to the power so he slapped a GSR head on. Long live the B20's!

    Exedy spring failure

    Wow, looks like they were failing for a while before that one spring came out from its cradle, and probably locked you out of gear, yikes! That clutch looks worked! If your gona try for a warranty, try not to show the heat checked flywheel in the back round lol. But seriously though...

    Finally installed a wide band. Went with the PLX, as they have never given me issues in the past. I wanted to run the power and ground source on the same side of the dash- I used the power from the fuse box, (I found that EK's and DC's factory fog light connectors are the perfect fit, so I...

    MotorMo's Whip

    Its the little things.... like searching for A/C caps that are Black that fit the Honda factory lines. After a month of sourcing, I found one from a Nissan, and one from a Toyota- not a one size fits all affair.

    Recent days I decided to swap out the stock mount set up for a mix of Energy suspension front lower torque inserts, and a Hasport rear mount. I figured this would be the best compromise of making the engine stay in place, but not send too many vibrations into the cab. The combo so far has worked...

    ek9 same motor mounts as dc2?

    The EJ9 that I have uses different front lower 'torque' mounts than a DC/EG. I would believe the same would apply to the EK9 as well. VS The rear motor mounts are all 'interchangeable' , 92-00 Civic's, and 92-01 Integra's. 2 point vs 3 point mounting point is a difference on the timing belt...

    Handled the finishing touches- She's up and running well. It would be a very long post if I noted all the small things that I did during this recent work. It was nice to make another wiring harness from scratch. They are such a pain in the ass lol. But it turned out well, and I'm happy with...

    MotorMo's Whip

    And the games continue. Recent days have left me working on the rest of the plumbing of the cooling system. The Skunk2 manifold coolant port doesn't leave enough room for the clamp- So instead of finding a narrow worm style clamp, I simply did a little custom work to allow for the needed...

    B18C high idle, slight hunt

    That's a fairly large 'leak' for it to idle hunt...I believe the 98 spec DC2 Type R throttle body does not have a 'fast idle valve' that other Integra's have. You stated your using an old throttle body- just a thought to make sure this T.B. doesn't have one. With Fast idle, VS No fast idle.

    MotorMo's Whip

    I knew my engine had a lot of movement from the remaining stock motor mounts. While I had had the intake off, I decided to finally buck up with the vibration and replace my rear mount with one of Hasports. Super glad I did as upon inspection I found witness marks that showed me just how...

    MotorMo's Whip

    Its been a while since I last updated this thread-- This month I am swapping out the GSR two stage manifold for a single stage. The obvious replacement was a Skunk2 manifold. Its "top of the line" , But when it arrived in the mail I found it was some what lacking in some very obvious ways...
