I bought it for my D16y8 which is the stock engine in my acura EL and is the same as a civic SI.

Yonaka Radiator: rating 4/5

I think the quality of the radiator itself and the fan are amazing for the money. Really nice welds and packaged really nicely. A big problem for people with d series engines is the oem hose will not fit, I stretched mine over with some elbow grease but I do not think the radiator hose will last. The connectors for the fan to connect the wires to the oem connector are useless but a cheap fix with some personal connectors to crimp.

Yonaka engine mounts: rating 4/5

Really solid however the vibration is slightly excessive, have had them on for a week. IF vibration goes down I will up my rating. I had black forest high density mounts on my gti and these are not as bad but I thought the vibration would be minimal.

Really good quality from looking at it and a breeze to install the rear and drive side mount. (an hour to do both) Surprisingly the passenger side mount did not go on nicely but some adjustments got it on.

Furthermore Yonaka customer service is AMAZING. After all of these products I may indulge on the coil overs.

Overall, people say lots of things about yonaka, it seems nobody actually buys the products and are making false claims. I bought the exhaust about 2 years ago and its holding up great. So a few months ago I went for the radiator and mounts on this premise. My close friend is a high ranking engineer and all of these products he has been impressed by the products. (cost in relation to what you get)

Keep your Honda's happy!!:blue:

I purchased it directly from yonaka and it was delivered to my door. I have driven just shy of 1000 kms on them and they are still pretty stiff and my inserts vibrated a tenth of what these do but the performance is noticeable ( throttle response and when shifting hard it keeps things tight.
