hah. well it was the flex pipe. i got it back 2 weeks ago. sounds better than it did the day i got the swap done. not so loud until i step on it. sounds basically how it would inside the RSX-S chassis. i love it. i think i need new paint. maybe thats why yours looks so much cleaner. i dont know.

i need another lip though. 2 days after getting my car back, i was driving, and my lip fell off, then i ran it over. :( i need an OEM SI lip this time. no fake "style" lips. theres no clips to go under the front of the bumper for the styles. i just had it screwed in on each side of the bumper. and honda sells them for $334. such a rip off.

i have an AEM regulator. i plan on getting a AEM fuel rail some time. How did KPRO fix the sensor thing for you?

Posted By: joecivic
Date: 01/05/2009
yeah. the vibration calmed down a bit. not bad no more. my hood latch use to rattle though, which i hated ALOT, so i put electrical tape around it. lol. the car runs good. i need a primary wide band o2 sensor though. and a new fuel pressure regulator since this one isnt feeding through the return line like it should. so when im in 5th gear at wide open throttle, around 7000 rpms it bumps down, kinda like when your low on gas how your car just cant take anymore and bumps down. i have a warranty on that though. and sometimes the car wont start right away beause of it. but most importantly, i love this car.

well i have my car, and i love it. only thing is, it vibrates way too freakin much. is yous the same way? is it like that with this swap for everyone? and can it be fixed. like everything in my interior just shakes and its annoying. lol. i dont even care for my music no more. well, plus i love the beastly sound of the motor. haha. please let me know if this is a problem with you, or if its normal and can be fixed. thanks.

yeah. i just found out yesterday that another part is still be waited on. the header from DC Sports, along with the shift linkage. but the shift linkage, they said they ordered everything when i got there 2 months ago, and we are always asking them to contact the people they ordered from, and they say they do, but cant figure out where its at, and the tracking number. there should be a tracking number though right? yes. if it was ordered, and especially 2 months ago, and their doing the same thing every time i ask by contacting them (if they really contact them when i ask) then they should know where the item is at or something atleast. but nope, it was never shipped. so yesterday, if they are telling the truth, the ordered from another company that has the shift linkage, and should be here some time this week. thats why i say they are lying, and dont feel like working on my car. their procastinating. every time i go there, they aint working on nothing. i see alot of other civics there, and none being worked on, but every time i call, their "too busy" i keep asking for my old motor, and to have the old transmission since its new, and the head. but they tell me when they have time they can do it. their just lazy. i dont know why everyone tells me good things about these people.

lol, that was alot of complaining i just did. you look alot like this guy i worked with in the coast guard. (if thats you in the pic) just thought that was funny. hes a funny guy.

yeah, i knew the difference in the valve covers. i didnt care though. im just bored and wanted to paint it atleast. i havent had my car for like a month and a half now. and they keep BSing me with stupid excuses on how these 2 things were on back order. now im waiting on one part. ( i bet hes just lying) he said he was told the shift linkage was coming in last week, and i would have my car by then. then kept asking him, and he said the same thing. 4 days later... STILL NO CAR!!! shift linkage still aint in. im never going to these people again. im getting pretty angry now.

haha thanks. i was just looking at your update too. i just got done painting my valve cover for it into that wrinkle red. came out alright, but every can i get was messed up, and i just didt it anyways. do you have to change fuel rails? the people at the shop never told me that. and i hear alot of people saying for " what you need is this" you will need a new fuel rail. yours is nice. i thought it looked different at one time.

looks pretty nice, very subtle and clean. My kinda style. Ever thought about a mugen stripe/decal instead of what you got currently I think it'll look better.
