    Have a quick question? Ask it here!

    I started this so the new guys can ask newbie questions here, We have a search, but it can be intimidating for a new person, ask your newbie questions here, and someone will direct you to the proper thread, or try to answer them here. I started this as a help to the new guys, make sure you post in the introductions forum, then if you have a question about things such as engine swaps, etc, we can help you to the correct thread. Maybe this will cut down on the new threads started, that only have the question, and then 30 replies of SEARCH!! I know it's not always easy being the new guy.

    re: Have a quick question? Ask it here!

    i asked, other than mounts, what all is required to put a B16/B18 into a carb'd 3GEE? like, do ya gotta do an A20 EFI swap first (gas tank, etc) or can ya just start doin it. what axles can ya use, etc.
    the forum kinda lists what to do if ur already EFI, but not for the carb'd guys...
    ya ya i know, 'SEARCH' will prolly be my responce, but isnt that the point of this thread?

    you will probably need to do a lot of the same stuff you would have to do to change to Fi, you need the FI tank and pump, plus all the lines to start, none of the carb system is suitable for the pressure. all the FI stuff should bolt right in, you can always upgrade the pump later once all the fuel stuff is in

    you will probably have to make a harness or a hybrid harness, I'm not sure if anyone has ever done this, you have to take one step at a time

    re: Have a quick question? Ask it here!

    I guess this belongs here. So, the idle speed on my LX-i is normal at lower speeds with no check engine light. But once I get on the freeway, the check engine light shows up and my idle speed rises up to or over 1200 RPM warm. I think that it is important to include that my car was sitting for a long time until recently and hasn't had its oil changed in like 2 years (I know... but my dad changes oil every 6k and it hasn't hit that mark yet). My uncle thinks it's the EGR valve causing the problem, but I will get it checked back when I get my car back from the paint shop. But I'm just curious what you guys think it'd be. Any help is appreciated.

    pull over and check the code on the ecu. then get back to us.


    itzdave, you would think it would be easier to just swap in the entire ecu/engine harness. Then figure out the speedo and tach.

    bullards b20 had some monstrosity of harnesses which made it hard to figure out. I think it was a Prelude engine harness and accord cabin harness. with a bunch of re-wiring.
    un-motivated!
    someone make me an offer i just could not say no to.

    re: Have a quick question? Ask it here!

    Why do the front bumpers (USDM, not sure about others) have four holes in them, when both the license place and bracket only go into the same two? What are the two extra holes for?

    no all the parts have to come from an SEI, you can upgrade the brakes after you have the SEI suspension parts
