answer me this, why do u need cross drilled rotors That was my question. You should be aware that if it's to boost performance cross drilled rotors need to be matched with the right disc pad and in some cases calipers because of the chance of disc fracture. Manufacturers like Brembo warn of this an...

The first thing you should do is go by a respectable Diagnostics fellow, and have the CEL (error code) read. E.g. if the code is PO0** etc. That code can then be cross referenced to determine WHAT is actually causing the error. If your mechanic/diagnostics guy is worth his mettle, then he should ha...

Not too sure what you're talking about, but Japanese Domestic Market (JDM) are not supposed to advertise vehicles hp exceeding 276hp (206kw) due to Gentleman's Agreement. Example: Skyline has been tested on a dyno to reach 325hp factory stock and Nissan advertised it as 276hp...same goes for Toyota...

Yeah that's what I gathered as the reason Honda states for using these spec. Honda engines run some rediculously tight clearances.

yup Sweeeeet!!! Another question....any1 really uses the oil specifications Honda quotes? For instance the manual says use 10W30 grade but I'm thinking that in our climate and with the amount of traffic yuh does be in that's a little too thin and maybe a 15 or 20W50 is better. Any thoughts on this?
