  1. 06+ Civic Si 2/4dr Spring Rates and Drop Guide

    Suspension and Brakes
    Hi all, I skimmed through this thread, but couldn't really find the answer as to what springs I should go with. It seems like with Neuspeed and Progress not making springs for our cars anymore, the majority of the lowering springs out there are pretty much the same. Reason for wanting lowering...
  2. Wont shift into gears

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    Does the crack always occur in that particular location? Pretty difficult to see up in that spot. But from the pictures I did manage to get, I don't think it's cracked there. Definitely not cracked on the side that's more easily visible. One other thing I did notice is that the "pop" in...
  3. Wont shift into gears

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    Not to hijack this thread, but it seems more appropriate to post here than to create a new thread. I'm also having trouble getting into gear (all gears). But it's intermittent. Synchros sometimes work, sometimes don't. Sometimes it's fine, sometimes I have to wait for revs to fall on...
  4. VSA Modulator Failure

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    Hey all, bumping this thread because I too now have the VSA and (!) lights on :( My car is an '08 Si coupe, about 112K on the clock. In my case it only happens after driving for a while, usually after 40+ MPH speeds. My "BRAKE" light (e-brake) light also comes on, but not always at the same...
  5. Legend calipers?

    Suspension and Brakes
    ??? Thanks, but that doesn't answer my questions at all...I'm guessing the Legend / NSX calipers are not going to fit on a TSX rotor, so I think I'm just going to go the full-on TSX route with some good pads. I'll upgrade later if need be.
  6. Legend calipers?

    Suspension and Brakes
    Searched around, but couldn't find an answer. Since roasting my OEM Si rotors and pads after only one track day, I'm looking into upgrading...I need to replace them anyway. TSX rotors are the obvious choice, and since I'm sort of on a budget, I'm considering TSX calipers as well. BUT on the...
  7. All about motor oil

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    Don't know if this has been mentioned (can't search for a three letter term)---has anyone tried Valvoline VR1 (10W-30) for daily use? Not the synthetic variety. I used to use it in my track-only vehicle because it has a high ZDDP content and holds up to high temperatures extremely well. At...

    ^ Nice car, GLWS! Good to know! I'll adjust it based on his video and see how it goes. I don't have issues getting into gear, it's just the pedal engagement feels off. It starts engaging immediately after letting it up, and then there's a long ass way before it fully engages. Nearly the...

    Nice. I'll definitely take a look this weekend. I don't have issues shifting, always goes into gear without grinding, it's just the clutch pedal doesn't feel right (and of course it does pop). Probably will just adjust the pedal per that video, and if it doesn't fix the noise and pedal feel...

    Thanks for the info, my car has just over 100K on it, I'll most likely do the valve check / adjustment myself. But the car came with a warranty. It's got the dreaded clutch pedal popping sound, and the clutch engagement itself is really weird, so I'm going to have both master and slave...

    Sup guys and gals, '08 Si coupe just found a new home :wavey: Bone stock and super clean. We'll see how long that lasts :facepalm: Anyone here been to Import Sports? I hear they're a good shop for Honda maintenance and tuning, and they're not too far from me...
  12. The Ultimate Seat Info Thread

    Inside and Out
    Hey, I'm new here, and some great info in this thread, but I didn't see anyone talking about this... I just bought an '08 Si, and while I love it overall, there's one thing I really can't stand for long: the way the lumbar support is structured. Specifically, there's too much of it in the...
  13. 06 Civic Si Popping Noise From Clutch

    Mechanical Problems & Technical Chat
    Hi everyone, new here, I just bought an '08 Si and the dreaded popping noise has come up. I didn't notice it on the test drive, but I sure did on the way home. It gets worse the warmer it is in the car (especially if the heater is going on the floor). It's a pop I can hear and feel in both...
