    Ah i see..

    Do you know that pins A21 and A22 are wired together.. They both do ignition..

    The signal from A21 and A22 should feed into the BeeR, and then feed back out to the wires that USED to go to A21 and A22..


    For example, if you disconnect the wires that go to A21 and A22, you wont get a spark. However, if you leave one of the two connected, you will still get a spark.. This might be what is happening..

    Hey mate, sorry i didnt reply to your PM...


    Having a look at the post, the pin A21 is the ignitor feed to the coil driver.

    What the BeeR does is sit in between this link and modify the signal.. Im confused when you said that when you removed the yellow wire it worked.. The idea is that you cut the wire between the ignitor and the ecu, run the A21 signal into the BeeR, and then out via the green wire to the ignitor.. This allows the BeeR to cut and retard that signal.. If when you disconnect the yellow wire, the engine starts, then there is a problem.. It sounds like you havnt cut the wire from the ignitor to the ECU...

    The BeeR will now form PART of the ignition system, disconnecting it without bridging certain wires will actually stop the engine from running completely..

    If that makes sense..

    Id be interested to see what they think constitutes a Formula 1 car....

    Alot of us have spent more than we should on Civic's but i dont think we could say we're close to being a Formula 1, open wheeled, multi-million £ race car..

  14. PurpleCivicTurbo added a post in a topic 607 BHP 4WD Honda Civic Coupe   

    nice! ive been following the build on their CRX, the coupe couples all their work together.

    The honda 4wd system changed in the 90s. The wagon system is true AWD. The front and rear wheels are permanently connected together. But during turning .etc, the wheel speeds need to change, there is a viscous coupler in the prop shaft which allows the wheel speed to be slightly different.

    The later ones use a clutch pack in the rear diff, no viscous coupler. When the front wheels are going faster than the rears, the differential pressure between 2 hydraulic pumps in the rear diff close the clutch pack engaging the rear wheel drive.

    As the speeds equalise, the differential reduces and the clutch opens. As this happens quickly it creates a modulation, which biases torque. Mathematically only up to 50%...

    Sorry if that didnt help..
