    Latest Topics vs. Unanswered Topics

    On the front page would it be possible to have the Latest Topics side bar listed above Unanswered Topics? I don't know about everyone else but when I log on the site I generally look at the Latest Topics first and tend to comment on those threads. The Unanswered Topics side bar (which I believe...

    So who works a full-time job and a part-time job? I have a fairly decent full-time job but I'm trying to buy a house so a little extra income would be nice. I don't absolutely need the second job so I can afford to be a little picky, I just want something I'm not going to hate. Does anyone...

    Testing out the new camera

    I bought a new camera about a week ago and decided to test it out. It's a Sony A-55, not technically an SLR but it's Sony's new equivalent, still an interchangeable lens camera. Originally I wasn't thrilled with the picture quality and was thinking about exchanging it for a Nikon D5100 but after...

    Screw on Key Fob Stripped

    The screw in my key fob is stripped, it uses a #0 phillips head so it's super tiny. I tried using an even smaller flat head and a razor blade but no luck. Anyone have any ideas? Where the hell could I get a screw to replace it assuming I can get it out?

    I'm dropping a D15B8 into a 97 Civic and trying to determine the best way to wire the distributor. I have the stock OBD1 distributor on the motor and I also have a D16Y8 distributor on a spare head that I have laying around. As some of you may know the OBD1 distributor has 2 plugs and the OBD2a...

    Skunk2 Alpha

    I'm sure that I'm not the only one who gets emails from Skunk2 but I got this today and thought I would share. I'd be willing to bet that this is all a marketing ploy to gather buzz, which of course I am falling right into, but I think this type of marketing is interesting so… discuss.

    Car won't start after dizzy and wires changed

    So I changed the distributor cap, rotor and spark plug wires in my car today and now it won't start. I don't know what I could have possibly done wrong. I double checked the firing order and even reinstalled the old cap, rotor and wires one by one to see if I had a bad part. There has to be...

    Mini-Me Problem

    So had a mini-me swap and timing belt / water pump change done last week by a local shop. They are very reputable and build sick Honda's. I thought about doing it myself but I brought it to them because I don't have enough time to actually get it done myself. But anyways, they told me that there...

    96-98 SOHC VTEC ECU Question

    Can anyone tell me for certain if all 96-98 D16Y8 ECU's are the same? I bought an ECU with the number 37820-P2P-A71 and that's what it was listed as but it is not working properly. I just want to gather the correct information so I can resolve the issue with the seller fairly.

    WTB: CD Player Harness EM1

    I picked up an EM1 CD player and I need the wiring harness that goes in to the back of it. If it's cut I'll probably take it but I'd much prefer uncut. PM me if you've got one, thanks. I think any 99-00 CD player one will work, maybe other years but I'd need to see a pic.
