Default Future Engine Build?!?!

I keep entertaining the thought of building another N/A build along with a forced induction build. It might be a while... or maybe in the not so distant future?!?!

Possibly another B20 Vtec build?

D3300 is setting a good example
Default Spark plugs, spark plug wires, cap and rotor and compression test

Playing catch up with my journal again.. :P

The car was acting a bit on the sluggish side so i decided to change the spark plugs, spark plug wires, cap and rotor. Previous owner seems like they only did maintenance only if the car needed it. Didn't really keep up with it good like i would but hey that's why she is here now. I also wanted a compression test done since we would be in the area, just to know everything is good under the hood. Unfortunately I can't find the numbers from the compression test but everything checked out good. When i do find the paper with the numbers i will update this post. The car really needed these parts badly, the car felt so refreshed after.

Today's installs:




Removing the old spark plugs


Compression test, since the spark plugs were out



Replacing cap and rotor




old crusty gasket vs. new



old spark plugs vs. new spark plugs


New spark plug wires




All done!

D3300 is setting a good example
Default Hawk hp+ brake pads, Centric rotors, StopTech brake lines, Motul brake fluid

When I was inspecting the brake pads noticed they were kind of getting low. I decided to order Hawk HP+ pads and new Centric blank rotors. I figured might as well order the stainless steel brake lines front and rear and do a flush on my car. Since I didn't know the last time it was done on this car might as well do it now. For brake fluid i usually ordered ATE Super blue but since that was deemed illegal to use in the US i had to find something just as good and I ended up purchasing Motul RBF 600. I have heard nothing but good things and read up on the fluid and it also had a higher boiling point tolerance than Super Blue.


Today's installs:




Dirty dirty brake fluid


Old front


Old rear


Old vs. New front


Old vs New Rear




Let the brake flush begin!


Look at what was coming out!! It was gross, i couldn't believe how dirty it was.


StopTech stainless steel lines installed


Old vs new front


Old vs new rear


All done! Looks so good



Went for my usual ritual after a great install!

Awesome updates. Sometimes updating the basics on your car (plugs, wires, pads, rotors) can be so rewarding even though it's just getting your car running how it should run.

And not trying to be that guy, but I've seen worse brake fluid. Did it smell like fish? Mine did.

D3300 is setting a good example
Default Hasport Motor Mount Install

Since i bought my DC2 I knew i wanted to replace the motor mounts. Why did i wait so long to replace these parts, i think it was more of finding the time to do it because i knew the car had to be down for a few. The car felt like the engine was going to fallout from the bottom of the car. The ride wasn't pleasant as i was daily driving the car at the time so even if i had a passenger you can tell in their face it wasn't pleasant. So i finally made the decision on pulling the trigger on the Hasport Motor Mounts because they are the best! I got the Hasport 62A "street durometer" in machined billet non anodized. The motor mount install was pretty straight forward, had everything installed in a few hours. I just couldn't believe that mounts were so wore out that when we took them out the center of the mount just fell out like nothing.


Todays install's:


Old rear orginal OEM motor mount




New rear motor mount




Old vs New rear mount


Rear mount installed




New right mount


Old vs New right mount




Right mount installed




Old left mount


New left mount


Old vs New left mount




Left mount installed


So glad this are NOT in my car anymore the ride is so much better!


Here is a small video clip, SOLID! i wish i would of got a video of it before when it was rocking back and forth... lol
