D3300 is setting a good example
Default Maintenance and Adjustments

Did a lot of things to the car which includes: oil change, adjust coilovers, adjust the alignment, inspect brake lines, inspect brake pads, inspect rotors, rotate tires, inspect exhaust rattle, adjust tire pressure, clean air filter, remove air intake resonator.

Oil change time, up she goes


Draining the old oil


Brand new OEM filter and crush washer and i forgot to take a picture of the oil but i used Castol Syntec 10w-40


Removal of the air intake resonator
Before




After


Coilover adjustment, raising it up because the previous owner had it way to low.
Before




After


Inspect rotors and brake lines while we are here all around... everything checked out fine!


Alignment time...








After all of this went for a small drive. This photo has to be one of my favorites in her earlier years

Good stuff! I want some of those Longacre plates to adjust alignment. Those are a good idea.

D3300 is setting a good example
Default Shifter bushings, Sparco pedals, bye bye BBS

Since i bought the car i really wasn't happy with the BBS wheels, just wasn't my thing. I ended up putting them for sale and sold them pretty quick. Lets just say the stock wheels is what i had on my Integra for a long time since i sold them. I know the appearance wasn't that great but i think it personally looked good. Took a bit to get used to but i was satisfied with my decision. Everyone asked why would i do that?! again different strokes for different folks. I also threw on the stock mirrors, got rid of the carbon fiber ones, which were broken and i couldn't see out of the passenger side mirror.

The last time i saw my car like this


what she looked like with the stock wheels.



The shifter bushings were pretty shot. Everything felt like you were stirring porridge just didn't feel right. I purchased all new OEM Honda shifter bushings, shift lever, energy suspension shifter stabilizer bushings to replace the old worn out stuff that was currently in the car. Sorry for the not so great pictures ahead of time, the lighting was not cooperating with my camera at that time. I tried to snap most of the stuff we did and put the most important pictures up.





Old stuff along with some comparisons with the new...


















New vs. Old shifter lever


old


new












Old vs. New




New







The car came with some "razo" pedals, which was another thing i wasn't too fond of. One day i was driving home from work and the clutch pedal fell off and i drove like that for a while. Then John gave me an awesome birthday gift and bought me all new Sparco pedals. I wanted to immediately put them on, so we did! We had to mock up the pedals to the bare pedals on the car. Mark the holes we wanted to drill and install the new pedals. Since i don't trust myself with a drill John took charge of this task. lol I actually prefer these pedals over any other pedals i have ever used. They reminded me of the ones that came stock in my WRX and the feel felt so natural yet is meant for aggressive driving which was perfect for me. Rev matching, heel toe never felt better in this car. Love it! Only thing about these pedals is that the little black rubber things fall off as the time goes by, which it hasn't really made a difference for me.

Sparco pedals


Old pedals


Mocking up, drill and install







Ended the day with a drive with the new look.

It's funny, back when I had that civic with the b16 in it when I first swapped the motor in I remember the V-TEC would engage sort of erratically sometimes. I wonder If I had a mucked up solenoid? Suppose it doesn't matter anymore in my case haha. Cool to see everything going well with yours!
