That's who you want... Just buy them directly from him. He has like a 2 year warranty and extremely good customer service.

Could someone take a pic or two of the bottom corner of your windshield? I don't care which side, I just need a pic to compare. Much appreciated.

So how much impact do you think adjustable dampening has on the life of shocks/coil overs?

I was thinking about running mine full stiff for a while for some twisty fun.

What's the best way to take off the fender liner? I'm not sure how to remove those tabs w/o breaking them off (or can you)?

Thanks,

With how old they are you're probably going to break them, but they're only like 80 cents a piece at the honda dealer, I bought a couple bags of them when i put my cai in. You can try to get them to come out, but you'll most likely break them, to get them out, you use a flathead to pry up the tab in the middle and it slides out, but 10 year old plastic usually doesn't cooperate

It is impossible to not break these things. I would go to Honda like Blackack said and replace the ones you break. easy. That's what I did.

Anybody on here used Megan Racing parts? I was wondering about their exhaust and header for our 2.2 engine. I've heard good stuff from some people and mixed results from others about their products.

my sister's car had a megan catback from the previous owner and when we replaced it last week, the pipes were rusted so much that the pipe was almost completely detached from the catalytic converter. the muffler was in bad shape too. the system was 4, maybe 5 years old.

Can somebody explain what it means to "reloop a steering rack?"

I've seen people talk about it a few times on here but have no idea what it means.

Thanks

if u deleted ur power steering, relooping it means that u fill it with power steering fluid, then take the line that goes from the rack to the pump back into the inlet for the rack so that it basically only stays in the steering rack and doesn't leak.

Sounds like it's just a way to manage the fluid. Why wouldn't you just drain it out? Corrosion issues?

No, u can't have power steering without the pump but relooping it makes sure it stays lubricated because it can start to lock up without fluid, which u really don't want. I hate not having power steering, as soon as I find the pump bracket adaptor mine is going back on. big car w/no powersteering sucks.

Quick and easy question. What are those two websites that sell only OEM Acura parts at discount prices. I've been there before but can't remember the URL.

That happened to me, and soon after i had no more heater core. So my guess is that your heater core is about to blow, or apparently already has.
