    that rubber thing in your spark plug well was a rubber from inside a spark plug socket. they hold the end so it doesnt fall out of the socket when you lower it down the hole.

    That last starfighter discussion, I have a memory of a scene in that film where the enemy captures a spy and plays a video of them melting his head with a laser to the good guys for some reason....needed to get across how evil the bad guys were, and that certainly did the trick.

    Why everytime we gotta listen to how inferior to the rest is Honda. Because that's complete bulshit!!! I wanna see Subaru makes 200hp on a 2.0L NA engine. Hell, slightly tuned K20z3 makes over 215 whp again NA engine, slap a Turbo and that 2.0L will outperform any Subaru 2.0l engine. How about new Gen Honda iVTEC Turbo compare that to a Subaru and see which engine is more durable and reliable and capable of making more power. No need to hear from you, It Is the Honda engine just better build.

    Can’t believe no one is going to mention that all the fiddling around cleaning the spark plug wells, that the engine is on a stand turn it upside down!, Painful to watch. Finally gets the idea of using the stand for the oil filter and does it the wrong way up...I guess watching a German engineer work would not be as entertaining

    "That's the end of the distributor lead" It could also be the little rubber bits that go inside a spark plug socket that hold the spark plugs when you remove them. They have a tendency to fall out.

    So the car market is obviously different in Australia. And I know you guys don't get the appeal of the Civic. But at least in the USA, the Civic is one of the best cheap cars to modify. There are other cheap cars here that are fast. But they handle like shit & get like 5 MPG. And there are other cheap cars that handle well that have zero tuning potential or very little aftermarket support. And this is another thing, You guys have done a lot of swaps from other makes into different cars. Not all, but in most USA states it is illegal to put an engine from a different make into a different car. But with Honda and the Civic especially, you can put just about every engine from Honda or Acura in there, pass emissions, get good gas mileage and have fun building a car from humble or crumbled beginnings. It's a great first car. If you get into cars, it's cheap and relatively easy to repair or to modify. There is a lot of aftermarket tuning support available from companies like Hondata, Hasport, Skunk2, Hybrid Racing and many others. And a lot of local communities and an enormous pool of used and new parts available. And in the process you can make new friends and talk about mad car things. Or just support one another. Like you guys do. So this is my THESIS on why the Civic is a great car. Especially the older ones.
