Nickie-b added a topic in Engine / MechanicalEK3 engine upgrade Guru help required.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.

Nickie-b added a topic in Interior / Audio / ElectronicsAlarm wanted.....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.

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!
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.
