is the car overheating?
no. the car doesn't have any problems. its been A++ so far! gotta love the D15B VTEC. Since the day of the swap, we worked out kinks in the car and now its been superb. maybe just a lil power loss during 50-60km/h, other than that its been great.is the car overheating?
got an aftermarket reson? that could be it as well! Where is the pinging coming from? the front middle or rear of the car? Metal contracting again after expanding from all the heat that passes through could be the pinging coming from the middle towards the back,
You explain it well. It sounds like ticking, thats the word.My parent's Pontiac knocked (built early 80's), but it was more of a "tick." And it started quick, then slowed down until it eventually disappeared. I think my Infiniti G35 did the same when I owned it.
It seemed thermal in nature, like metal contracting after you shut it off, but I was never sure. If someone can shed some light on this, it'd clear up a long lasting mystery for me as well.
or for people that want to be able to affordably run 13:1 compression on the street, but thats another topic entirely..Try the other gas like 89-93 fuck that ethanol corn syrup shit, its for hippies.
no man, running 4-2-1 ractive SS headeryou have the stock aluminum heat shield on a stock exhaust mani?
will check for that too. Good idea.both my hatch and crx tick after drives but it mostly comes from the exaust and you could think it is coming from the engine because its coming from the exaust manifold or downpipe.
will try running different grades of fuel. i heard i should work my way up. Like since Im running 87, I should try silver which is like 89, and then if that doesnt help, try gold 92/94?Try the other gas like 89-93 fuck that ethanol corn syrup shit, its for hippies.
