  1. EK3 engine upgrade Guru help required.

    where did you find your looms for £80?? I looked on flea bay and they are asking silly money. I'll keep an eye out for the loom, I have a prelude and a soarer to play with in the meantime.   I think the civic will be sat around for a short while till I get the loom and the weather warms up lol
  2. EK3 engine upgrade Guru help required.

    If i can get around paying out nearly £200 for a loom I think i will take that option, the donor car was running just fine using this loom so I just need a way of splicing the loom to get the few wires connected.
  3. EK3 engine upgrade Guru help required.

      is this the conversion harness??     P28 that works just fine......     Guess I just need the correct loom for inside the car? is there no way I can wire the fuel pump relay and rev counter into the ecu without having to splice the EK4 harness into the EK3 harness?
  4. EK3 engine upgrade Guru help required.

    My ek3 is pre facelift, however the engine and gearbox was fitted to a EJ9 and was running fine. I am a little worried that I forgot to strip something from the donor car?   I have been told tho that the B18C4 doesn't have a fuel regulator so potentially I could wire the fuel pump up to the ignition so it has a constant feed of fuel and all will be ok?   Still need to figure out the rev counter issue?
  5. Hi all,   I have been transferring a complete B18C4 engine and LSD box into my EK3 and seem to have hit a small snag.   The engine is installed and works fine except for the fact that the fuel pump wont activate without a constant feed from a battery lol   OK let me try to explain, I have a P28 ECU from the donor car.....     This works fine, however what we can gather is that the fuel pump relay isn't connecting properly to the ECU so therefor not telling it to prime the pump and feed the engine.     This is the lead that goes from my cars wiring loom to the ECU, my original connector has all the right wires but it seems that the engines loom is missing the required wires to connect it to the ECU?     I have an OBD1 ECU with a wire harness, notice only 2 plugs connected, this is also a worry as the engine ran in the donor car and this is the same harness?       Now if I supply the fuel pump with constant power from the battery it runs fine (apart from no rev counter) however we don't want to run it this way in case we come across problems...... So has anyone fitted a B18C4 to a civic EK3 and experienced any of these issues??   Any help would be gratefully appreciated as I am totally stumped lol.   Thanks all.
  6. How to remove the center air vent?

    yeah please, would be interesting to see what is involved in stripping it down.
  7. How to remove the center air vent?

      Thought as much, got a few cracking sounds when trying to pry it so i stopped. Might just leave that one, not sure if i can be bothered to strip the dash out to just paint up one vent?   Cheers
  8. Hi all, I am trying to remove the center air vent from the dash so i can colour code the interior.   Problem is i cant figure out how to get the little rat out? Can anyone shed some light on this for me please? Looks a little like this one.     Thanks

    Does anyone know where I can get the engine mounts for the EK3? I have managed to get the lower left and upper right, but still struggling to get the FEM3492 part.   First line no longer make them and I cannot find anyone with them in stock? Is honda the only option for this?   Cheers
  11. Alarm wanted.....

    Not touching ebay, I want someone to come out and fit a quality system, just dont want to pay the earth for it.
  12. Hi,   Not sure where to post this so any help from the mods will be gratefull. I need to get a new alarm for my EK3, it has remnents of an old alarm, which I think is draining the battery, however it doesn't work. So would like a new alarm fitting especially as I have got the car to a point where it gets a lot of attention.   Any help would be appreciated in getting a good deal, I live in the oxford area but will travel a short distance for a good deal.   Thanks
  13. I would put my name down but already got my soarer and civic on the miss banzai site, will be interesting to wander over and see you all tho.
  14. JAE Tunnel run!

    It works better by heading from JAE for the tunnel run as you get to set up your camp before going, which means an empty car and a bed to sleep in when you get back
  15. JAE Tunnel run!

    JAE Tunnel Run 2012 In association withmissbanzai For the 2nd time the teams at MissBanzai and JAE are collaborating to bring you the JAE Tunnel Run 2012 This year we will be starting from Wicksteed Park on the evening of Friday 7th September. The MissBanzai team will be waiting to collect your entrance fee at the field closest to the entrance at 10pm. Entrance fee is £10 per car - £8 of this fee will be given to Macmillan cancer care, this is all helping to go towards money being raised all weekend at JAE. £2 is to cover admin and printing costs. At approx 11pm when all the maps are handed out, we will be off to see the sights and tunnels of London. These will include The London Eye, Tower of London, Tower bridge and Big Ben… we will be doing some epic tunnels which include The Kingsway tunnel and the favourite West Ferry underpass to name but a few. So if you have heard of our infamous tunnel runs, but have never done one or you are a hard core tunnel runner and know what these are all about, get yourself, and your friends involved to help us raise as much money as possible for this very worthy charity. There will be a prize for Spirit of the Tunnel Run on the night, which will go to the car/team who have embraced tunnel running to the max! Details Starting point: Entrance field at Wicksteed Park Gates open: 9pm Price: £10 per car – Route map will be handed out on entry Gates close for entry: 10:30pm Cars leave for London: Approx 11pm The tunnel run will end at South Mimms services, where we can have some breakfast and then convoy back to JAE.
