'99 Civic EK1
Just want to show you some pics I made last week.
It was easy to know, the seller told me and when it arrived the quality showed it.I love the build. Really clean hatch you got there. How did you find out the Skunk2 IM was a fake? I've always read, and skunk2 even says it themselves, that their intake manifolds aren't plug and play on the OBD2 D series motors and require some mods to work.
Nothing like that here. Old car parts in Spain are expensive as hell. It's cheaper to buy this from Holland than some spare parts in a warehouse.not sure if you have autozones there, but you can buy them and bring them back within like 30 days if it doesn't solve the problem.
I will check again the cv axles, as you said just in case.If you want to check your own cv axles, have a friend with you, put the car on jackstands high enough tog et under the car, tell him/her to put it into gear (engine off of course) and hold the brakes.
Now grab teh shaft of the cv axle, and attempt to spin it both directions.
If it has a lot of play, figure out which joint it is. Now check the other side the same way.
If they both feel pretty snug with only minor play, you got something else going on potentially.
These cars do get squirrely and shaky under heavy braking and acceleration if the rear big bushings of the front lower arms go bad. SPhericals are a great replacement in this circumstance, and considering you are in Spain, they might even be very close in price to new rubber bushings
First thing I thought was the balance, but when I swaped wheels with the MB3, I reached 90mph without shake.things get a harmonic to them.
generally though, at 80+mph, Id almost target tire balance first, but that is just me. Not all shops balance a wheel/tire to 0.00 ounces like I do. Especially when 99% of your customers wont know about an imbalance that shows it self at above highway speeds.
