Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

Went to get pizza from pizza hut in the car tonight and turning of the street there's a drain / manhole cover that's come loose in the middle of the road that I didn't know about and sounded like it hit the underside of the car it was really loud, no damage / leaks tho when I got out and checked so...

"So I have decided to sell my Japspeed manifold as I thought it wasn’t flat and was leaking air" Just curious if you had mentioned the fault you thought the manifold had in the original post or not?

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

So I just tested the fog light part of my new rear lights and found out 2 of my led arrays don’t work which is incredibly annoying as I don’t have a bench tester here which means to make sure everything works I have to go down to my car and make sure it works off of the car https://uploads.tapatalk-...

Re: Phils little civic ek3

So one of the things that has been really annoying me with this car is that the boot floor is not flat and is sagging. I removed the carpet and the my surprise the bit of wood underneath it was still there but absolutely soaked through. So the current plan is the try dry it out a bit and straighten ...

Japspeed manifold £90 posted

So I have decided to sell my Japspeed manifold as I thought it wasn’t flat and was leaking air but apparently the issue wasn’t involving that and I can’t be bothered to put it back on the car. I think the manifold has about 400 miles or something on it and is in decent condition. It will also come w...

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

So after 2 hours of messing about and soldering I have finally ended up with this.... https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210115/e9fe73cb4b5b2f3c90cab19f30ebd39a.jpg The way that I have had to wire it is strange as it’s a circle and I need the middle section to be on wires to go out of the light and ...

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

So I have now done both the lights and completely disassembled one now. I think I will do two separate write ups for it, one for the tear down for anyone who wants to make custom lights and then one for the actual build and wiring. https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20210114/4bfb6305b986a1a48d71f267c4...

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

So after my low level issue I have been very lazy as I haven’t had to drive the car. So I thought today I would try to solve it and to my surprise my engine block had a lot of oil where the sandwich plate was for my sensors. So I took off the filter which had zero oil in it.... so I guess the oil le...

Re: Phils little civic ek3

Yeah I was going to go for a k swap initially however from my research it’s a lot easier to stick in a b engine due to the ek9 coming with the b16 and not needing to purchase a bunch of expensive k tuned parts. The guy that I actually got this car off of had 3 of these as he was looking for a car w...

Good lad! I was going to pm you about this car when I saw it in the back ground of one your posts the other day. all was going well until he rang me up and told me there was no backbox on it.... the result was a very unhappy Phil having to drive 1 and a half hours back to Coventry in an incredibly ...

Re: Phils little civic ek3

I also received my backbox yesterday but I was too hungover to install it as it was my flatmates 21st on Monday. Logically I thought there would be no point going with a standard box and I may as well get an upgrade. So my temporary solution was to grab a Japspeed/m2/Cheap Chinese crap box. Paid £11...

Re: Phils little civic ek3

So obviously the first things I did to it consisted of giving it a good clean as it had been sitting for around 4 months according to the seller and was covered in moss. Along with that I also had a trip down to ecp to pick up some service bits (which cost less than a set of Rx8 spark plugs [emoji23...

Phils little civic ek3

So I thought I would make a little collection of photos and some documentation of my little project/daily driver that I will be working on while my Rx8 is sorned at my parents house for the next couple of months. After watching a bunch of YouTube videos of people doing civic ek builds, I was set on ...

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

I use the 150ml versions of these bottles for my premix when I fill up as I normally fill up with a full tank. They can be a bit of a faff filling up with a funnel, but I found that filling up an old castrol power 1 bottle with 2 stroke and then using that to fill the little bottles works with no me...

I would (the rapper) Mos Def be willing to relive you of those if all goes well... If everything goes okay I may be willing to make a couple of sets [emoji3] Is it just a filter that is placed inside the lens or is it actually changing bulbs/lighting positions and types? :-k looks funky - almost li...

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

So the very nice Royal Mail man has been and delivered my lights from Illumaesthetic for my Rx8. So now I’m currently putting off cutting into my oem tail lights as I am petrified to screw up the cuts. Hopefully I will gain the courage and have them done by next week, meaning I will also have a set...

Re: What have you done to your RX-8 today????

Ohhh interesting. Is the smoke/clear section a separate section or is it made out of the diffuser material painted? So the base material is all clear and then anything that is black is painted on. When look at it closely the quality is okay but not 100% but I suppose when it’s in the car behind a t...

Gave it a little wash as it was caked in road salt [emoji3064]
Also gave my little ek hatch that I got on Friday a quick wash too as the guy I bought it from had left it sitting for 4 months and it was gross
