  1. Fuel economy

    Just wondering, what sort of mileage are you ek owners getting from a full tank? I'm averaging about 450kms sometimes less, 50% of my driving I have a passenger so I know this will affect fuel consumption, but it still seems like I should be getting a bit more, only mods are small exhaust 16x7s running 205 and 225s any help would be massively appreciated!
  2. Tyre question

    I'm looking at a set of 18" wheels and tyres for my accord euro-they are 245-40-18 and 235-40-18, what i'm wondering is will they be too big (tyre wise) and affect rwc? Is there a calculator I can use? Or an expert that can help? Thanks!
  3. Tyre question

    Thanks, think ill stick to the 16's and just get a cheap set of new tyres, will probably be better for resale than a set of 18's anyway
  4. Tyre question

    Oz honda have a shit sign up process that won't allow me to get in, i'm sure it's been covered a million times, i'm just not sure how to calculate it
  5. so i want to do a vtec head swap, i know its been covered and ive done some research... i have a D16Y7, ive read that the Y8 (vtec head) will nearly bolt straight on, but this is a single cam head, what im wondering is-what dohc head will go on this block if any? or am i better off doing a full engine swap? if so will my gearbox cope or will that need upgrading at the same time? big ask but thanks for all help!
  6. Honda tech expert

    Yeah did a bit more research and turns out aussie got the d16y4 which has 120 hp and the Brecht version has 126, so totally not worth it, yeah I'll probably go down the road of someone else spending Thier time/money or just buy something completely different...Anyone want an ek? Haha
  7. Honda tech expert

    i cant sign up because i dont pay for my email address, very annoying, i tried some american sites, turns out no dohc heads will work which means i go for the non vtec head for a mere 20 hp gain or do a full swap-big hassle! so i might just try to sell and buy something better... thanks
  8. Wheel spacers

    So what I'm considering is getting some wheel spacers, mainly to stop/help my tyres from scrubbing on lock and also to gain a little "stance" what I'm wondering is-how far/big can I go with standard wheel studs or where can I get extended ones? Would this be a speciality item? I'd like to go 10mm but not sure that it'll be safe? Thanks for any help.
  9. Wheel spacers

    Yeah they look the best way to go, cheers
  10. Look at this on eBay: Skunk2 Adjustable Coilovers Coilover Sleeve 88-00 Honda Civic Integra 10kg/18kg http://bit.ly/MRcDmU As far as I can tell, these slot over the oem struts and affix to them and by magic (it seems) converts them to coilovers? Has anyone had any experience with them? Are they as awful as I'm thinking or could this be an alternate to buying new struts and new springs, or coilovers? Car needs new struts anyway and probably springs too, so just wondering if anyone could give me some advice based on experience? Cheers! Edit: won't be going for 10 and 18 kg springs!

  12. Civic fuel economy

    Odd, red book says fuel tank is 45 liters? Can't imagine there is 2 liters worth of plumbing to the tank? Yeah I have 55 profile on the front atm and 50 on the rear, want some more low so gunna try out a set of 45's or 40's hoping this won't make much difference to fuel...
  13. Civic fuel economy

    Oh and I'm getting new tyres soon-195 or 205, 45 or 40, 16's will having a smaller diameter affect my economy much? As I'm 90% highway, might be dumb question but thought id ask, cheers
  14. Civic fuel economy

    Turns out it has a 45 litre tank? which is odd because I'm in the red when it takes 35ish liters to fill, so apparently there's another 10+ liters in the bottom of my tank hiding from me? I'm gunna run till the red light comes on this week and see how I go...
  15. Thanks, well I was thinking some koni struts and something equivalent to king spring ultra lows or super lows, as I want a bit of comfort as it is a daily, these were the same or cheaper than king springs so that does help, what would be a good comfort spring rate- 4&2? And no, car has no stickers, I know it's a Honda and I get plenty of shit for it, it's just a good daily
  16. Civic fuel economy

    Yeah just over 35 liters I think, thanks for that, just needed some reaffirming
  17. Best cheap 4x4

    So had a hilux-sold it for a 180-sold that and got a civic for the commute to work (can't afford 2 cars) now I kinda want another 4x4! In your opinion what's the best 4x4 for the smallest amount of money? Thinking an older Sierra or swb patrol, basically something ok for the commute (90km a day) and something I can have a laugh in on the weekend-civic is boring. Cheers!
  18. So if your not getting 4x100 stud pattern do you know of anyone who is? Or who stocks them? Cheers Option 1 Garage sell them as well, they may have that PCD. What size are you looking for? 15x8 100 or 16x8 100 or almost anything in 100 stud gap lol

  20. Just wondering what you people would do if someone gave you $100 that you had to spend on your car? What would you buy?
  21. Help a Newbie?

    Yeah I'd vote on the drag it'll be fine
  22. Polished lip and paint the inner the same as your car, might be too much orange, photoshop anyone?
  23. Help a Newbie?

    Kennards hire do hire utes pretty cheap and also hire out car trailers, pretty reasonable on cost compared to a tow truck in most cases, unless the shop is just around the corner, then just drag it there lol
  24. What size wheels do you have and why?

    That's where it's at!
