    Type S IDtec Induction kit

    I was having a think, would resetting the ECU when the induction kit has been fitted help? My thought behind this is that an ecu learns driving styles and engine parameters throughout it's life. If you put an induction kit on it will obviously change the air flow readings to what it is 'used'...

    Passenger Front Window Switch Module Fault

    Update: I have looked over the board and couldn't find anything obviously wrong or anything loose. I put the module in an oven at 70 deg C for a few hours to see if drying it will help and it now works again!! It's only been a day so not sure how long it'll go for, but everything works other...

    Type S IDtec Induction kit

    ^^ Sounds good though ;) I was going to do this too and make an induction kit, following as closely to the original pipework as possible to minimise the difference in air flow. There is now a kit you can buy for the i-dtec on ebay (I'm not getting this one though) so they must've done some...

    Passenger Front Window Switch Module Fault

    Hi all, My passenger front window module has decided to pack up again. This happened when I bought the car (I managed to get a decent chunk of money off it because of this), I took it out, cleaned it up and lacquered it and it's been fine for over 2 years. It is with our electronics engineer at...

    Boost actuator fault

    Hi everyone, I have been having a look at the actuator and where it is getting stuck. I can get it to move freely for most of its travel, it gets to about 5-10mm from the 'stop screw' before you can feel it hit a notch. You can overcome this with a bit of extra force at which point it then...

    VSA, traction control and ABS light simultaneously came on

    I have had the same lights come up on my Mk8, ABS & VSA etc. My normal OBD scanner couldnt find anything, went to see my mate with the proper kit and the NSR abs sensor has intemittant dropouts, most likely caused by dirt and stuff building up on the abs ring. I have noticed even with this...

    Boost actuator fault

    Thank you i will have a look today, i briefly looked yesterday, to get a half decent access i only need to remove the manifold heatsheald? is there anything i can spray on it or is the blockage likely to be internal? Hopefully if it is jammed it isnt causing any damage, as long as i drive...

    Boost actuator fault

    It comes up with: P00AF Turbocharger / supercharger boost control A module performance. It comes on as soon as the car is started so must be permanent. Actuator A performance, does that mean there's a signal failure? Or simply that it's stuck? I've just given it a blast to hopefully get some...

    Boost actuator fault

    I have had the same issue come up the other day, it will occasionally put the car in limp mode only if I'm using cruise control? It wont let me delete the fault code either. Still seems to be boosting fine, if anything it seems to be boosting a bit more than normal? I ***ume the acuator can't...

    Any experience with lowering springs?

    Hi everyone, I'm thinking of getting lowering springs (probably Tiens) for the accord. Has anyone else lowered their accords and if so, what has been your experience of them and have you got any pictures showing how it sits? Almost all of the springs I've found are are 30mm front and 25mm...

    2.2 I-Dtec Modifications

    Just a remap seems to get a standard 150hp dtec well over the power of the type s version (***uming it hasn't been mapped). I did also have a look at some type s parts to just swap out with however as you said @F6HAD there is nothing for sale hence I'm going to try out my own thing. Depending...

    Or will a type s turbo fit as a straight swap?

    2.2 I-Dtec Modifications

    Is it possible to fit the turbo core in a standard 150ho turbo? And do you know the difference in the cylinder head? cheers

    2.2 I-Dtec Modifications

    What does your stage 2 map push it to and what needs doing to achieve this? I feel that although it maybe efficient, the intercooler is very small for the engine/turbo size. I won't be going for anything massive that'll create a lot of turbo lag, but something slightly bigger and with a better...

    8th gen rear subwoofer issue

    I was thinking of just splicing into the oem amp so I can run an additional sub and piggy back of the signals. But it does seem like it's more hassle than its worth! Premium sound system is pretty decent I'd just like a bit more bass ;) I'm ***uming then as the sound system is a lot more...

    2.2 I-Dtec Modifications

    I'm quite curious what more I can get out of it. I've gotten used to the power it now has, which is fine, but I like doing this sort of thing and if theres more power to be made by a few simple mods then I'll give it a go! I'm wondering if anyone else has done more than just a map, EGR + DPR...

    2.2 I-Dtec Modifications

    Hi all, New on here, I've owned my 2008 GT ES 2.2 Dtec for around 2 years now with no issues at all! I went to get a Remap on it the other week and when the guy unlocked the ECU found it had already had one, upping the power to around 185-190 and torque to 410-420Nm. Since he unlocked it I've...
