Gonna start adding weight shipping costs so people can gauge how much shipping would cost them.
Since the threads are slow today and I saw this on another forum (Acurazine) and thought it was a good idea I figured it would be interesting to see what people posted here.
Just fill in whatever you done to your fit today. If its a modification, washed it, drove, anything chime in. Could be a fun thread to see peoples progress/activity.
To start things off I made my back emblem match my front emblem today. Sorry I will have to post pics of the back later but here is my ...
I may be wrong, but the OEM wheels are 6" wide. The max you can run is a 185. If they are a 7" wide rim, then a 205 can be used.
I had the OEM set up, tires were stock. I have the DWS on the WRX also, but in a 225 and they are great. I love the Extreme DWS, huge fan.
Yes, the FTB helped braking. I would suspect that there is a lot of chassis flex in our vehicles. This has to do with the sum of the forces in the Y direction in the front end, more engineering nonsense. ...
I live in Dallas. We just went through the hellacious winter storm "Cleon" (BTW, interesting they are naming every winter storm now). We were blanketed with a few inches of sleet which rapidly froze in sub-32 degree F temperatures. There was over two inches of ice caked onto my Fit Sport when I woke up.
I was very impressed by my Fit Sport's handling in almost ubiquitous icy conditions on the stock tires, Dunlop SP Sport 7000 A/S's. These tires do not have favorable ratings ...
Cost isn't too much of the issue, it's the support. No one supports the SCs anymore, if KraftWerks was still behind their product 100%, I would have just purchased that.
But I'm also wanting to learn Turbos, as it's a more economic option (I know I said cost wasn't the issue), but if I make a mistake and I have the right precautions like gauges, alarms and etc, making a modification myself will be possible.
The issue is I need power at the 2k RPM range, and I want to ...
"For what you're asking S/C is the best (though maybe not cheapest) option IMO. What's wrong with the kits that are available? Is it price that's bothering you? Everything is packaged nicely and not a lot of BS to deal with. Talk to Texas Coyote he loves his."
So when I was driving on the freeway I blew a spark plug and eventually had it towed to my house. The coil pack was blown off as well as the spark plug. When I tried to install a new spark plug, I noticed that the threading was gone and will only go in partially.
I tore down the car to the head, took the head to a machinist who rethreaded that one hole for me. I assembled up the car but will not turn over. It just keeps cranking forever. I did let the fuel pump run ...
the service dept. at my honda dealer says they recommend a combustion chamber cleaning every 40,000 miles.... for the low low price of $155.
my question is, are combustion chamber cleanings worthwhile?
and is there any reason to have honda do it for $155 vs. an over the counter cleaner for $15?
Here are mine: They weren't blue as the picture shows, but the difference is literally "night and day."
I used 3 24smd led panels (2x for the maps, 1x for the dome) and 1 15smd t10 for the back.
Ordered all of this from amazon:
4x 24smd led panels (2x 2-packages)
6x 15smd t10 (3x 2-packages)
2x 36smd led panel (1x 2-package)
all for $34. I accidentally ordered the 36smd led panels in blue, so I can't use those, or rather, don't want to use those so I gave them to a ...
You are correct prices seem to be going up.
This 1981 Toyota Starlet looks decently clean and sounds like a well-built but not quite finished project. It’s running a MegaSquirt controlled 16 valve 4AGE with individual throttle bodies, Corolla GTS rear end with a Kaaz LSD, coil-overs, JDM one-piece bumpers, and fresh paint. We’re guessing it should be good for 130+ HP with lots of revs, a combination that will do wonders to cure any perceived unworthiness ...
Fit Noob here. There are probably a few posts like this so i apologize in advance. If there are, links would be appreciated.
Basically, right now I drive a 2012 ford focus titanium hatchback. I love the way the Focus looks, its quite, and has a nice ride, but there are a lot of concerns. The transmission is terrible, it shutters, grids, and I just don't trust the mechanics behind it. There have been so many problems with the myfordtouch that I am just looking for something ...
"Has anyone painted the little faux-diffuser area of the sport rear bumper?
Im thinking it would look nice and OEM if done properly (based on some photoshopping I did), but I am hoping there are some real world examples out there. Anyone have pics of this?
Here is the area Im speaking of; Thinking a light textured flat black, possibly line-x would be nice."
Hey guys experimenting on color-- probably going to powdercoat them next summer when I find some wheels to roll on during that. Excuse the dirty car and phone pics. Also on a side note-- raised up the front a bit because I'm not that hardcore haha-- got tired of the constant scraping.
I'm talking about running a bigger transmission cooler.
A higher area ratio housing will allow for more air to flow at a higher rpm creating less back pressure therefore running more efficient. You will have good spool from 2500rpm-7000rpm. According to dsm's chart at 8psi you would make 150-160hp running 100%VE.
DSM I noticed your chart was set for a .48ar t25. The sr20 t25's I have have a .80ar compressor stamping. Would there be a noticeable map shift for the upper end?
If you can wait long enough, there's a concept Honda coming out........I don't know when, but it's on the Honda site.
Adam is back already. He's lost a TON of weight too. I bet you wouldn't be able to recognize him if he walked past you.
"How do you diagnose the starter going out? I can take it to my mechanic this week. Yeah it does suck to get stranded. I had to leave it at Hobby last week for 5 days and I was praying it would start when I got back...10 pm on a Tuesday night with the family an hour across town...Fortunately, it did start although a bit sluggish.
I've actually been thinking of selling it in the not-too-distant future. I still love it but in this land of HUGE trucks and SUVs, the diminutive size and lack of any luxury features (a USB for audio would be nice) are beginning to get old. I'm glad Fits keep their value so well. I will probably stick with Honda, just wish they had something a bit smaller than the CRV in their lineup. I drove a Ford Fusion sedan on my trip and it was quite nice but as sad ..."
