  11. Malaysia ... A motor sports nation?

    IMO, for motorsport to grow, we really need to do something on the grassroot level. Starting with smaller, community racetracks nearby, like the old Batu 3 speedway...cheap to enter & watch & get there. ( I think it was RM30 per car to race in SNF) I could personally say that I wouldn't be...

  21. Civic ES 1.7 overheat

    bryan, I just noticed in your earlier post, u mentioned an average speed of 160-200kmh....for 50km distance Thats quite fast and long duration for a stock radiator to cope. Its normal for a temp increase, when stopping after pushing the engine for a long period. there's no wind to cool the...
  22. Civic ES 1.7 overheat

    If all the cooling parts are working fine, then its probably either your head is warped or head gasket leaking. Do a start-up test: 1. When engine is cool open the radiator cap 2. Crank the starter, see if the water jumps out. (u might need 2 people to do) 3. If water jumps out during crank ...

  24. Ek oem bushing

    I've used them for almost 4 years now, & no squeaking yet ...most probably it happens due to poor lubing during installation.

  26. Guidance needed for Energy Suspension Bushing workshop

    If your already satisfied with your current setup, changing to energy bushings wont comprise your comfort levels, In my experience it kinda makes it feel more comfortable as running over bumps has a more firmer feel (like a new car ride feeling). Worn bushing tend to make your car ride harsher...

    Its not harsh, but firmer. Overall comfort really depends on your coilovers..

    Yes, I only meant about the rear trailing arm (purchased separately). My views on The Energy hyperflex kit is very good (refer the link for my full comment).

  40. Guidance needed for Energy Suspension Bushing workshop

    There are some issues though for me, mainly hard braking entering a corner (or during trail braking) & braking in high speed corners. The rear of the car becomes a little bit "twitchy/loose" & can cause some oversteering. Remember I said to get stock or mugen/spoon, hardrace bushings for the...
  41. Guidance needed for Energy Suspension Bushing workshop

    Just remember, the energy bushing kit doesn't come with the big rear trailing arm bush, it has to be purchased separately. I recommend hard rubber bushing or ori stock bushing for this rather than Energy bushings, either hard race, mugen...etc.
  42. O2 Sensor for B16a

    If not mistaken only D16 use same one as B16A, D15 ones are different Better just go to chopshop and find one, brand new ones are damn expensive. Or try contacting Exceptional Autoparts at Glenmarie.

  47. Skunk2 LCAs

    For me, anything related to the control arms, its better to go stock. Its a matter of Safety. Replicas are even a bigger no-no, as you don't know what materials are used, how its made,quality controlled & tested.
