    nothing more to do on my Civic, I use it daily, rides perfectly :Smile:
    i am moving with my house so I have other things on my mind, as soon as i will move, I will change my brake discs (front) + brake hardware (the metal thigs that hold the pads and don't let them squeak :Smile: ).
    cheers guys !:Drinks:

    I recently cleaned my dirty PCV valve and I’m thinking of installing a catch can between the PCV valve and intake manifold as you see in the picture. This will separate the oil going back in the IM making it cleaner. The question is what size pipe do I need?
    Thanks

    Hi Maj :Smile:
    On mine I do have the small pipe like in the picture. I can search for this part and give you the original part number.

    Cheers,

    I needed to know the size so I can order on eBay a longer size to fit a catch can

    Thanks

    Hi guys,

    I'm going to do a brake job on my Type-S , which will include front discs and pads + rear discs and pads. Brembo on front and Eicher on the back (because 90% of the braking is in the front and 10% in the rear. So no need to pay extra 50£ to have brembo all over the place :Smile: ).
    cost is around £130 for all + accessory parts (small metal brackets that the pads sit on).
    So yeah. Waiting for my salary and I'll do everything in 2-3 hours :Grin:
    As I've seen on the vast internet, the caliper piston is normal on the front (I can press it with a normal C clamp), but on the rear, I must have a rotating tool so that I can press it.
    Any advice from you guys ?

    Cheers ! :Grin::Grin:

    Brake job done :Grin: Brembos all around :Grin:

    I will do a mod on my shifter (actually 2 mods)
    First is installing this adjuster/adapter : https://i.ebayimg.com/images/g/4EAAAOSwD0lUdb~~/s-l1600.jpg
    Second is shortening the rod by 2inches (threading the rod, cutting it after) :Grin:
    Lastly if it ain't short enough I will install a smaller kn0b on it :Smile:

    Have you done anything like this ? Any advice ?

    Cheers guys !
