    Old soul wasn't wrong.. The issue is that people are crippled AF now anyways, so they are crutched the fu out on different aids and technology. Severe brain rot. Nice build, coming along great!

    Yeah, something like that haha. I'm just gonna leave a couple of catch cans, since it won't get fixed up lol.

    I used to hear those noise from my Accord, but this one sounds a bit different. If it's really from the wheel bearing, maybe it's sounding differently b/c of the difference in design. I heard, when it's shot, it shouldn't be driven for more than 1000 mi. My mechanic said it's getting noticeable, so I'm guessing that would be it. My Accord could be one of the most quiet ones in the CG game, so I can catch odd noises super early.;) Hopefully, it's really happening from the wheel bearing, something not so major in order to run.

    I hear ya. Every new technology make people spoiled in one way or another. I got so used to type words electronically, I hardly write things with my hand anymore. My hand writing is so bad now, it looks like a 10 year old's lol. Used to think all new car features aren't so necessary, but I could use a backup camera, when I get a freshly painted rear bumper cover haha. Thanks! Please stay tuned!:burnout:

    J37 I.M., CAI, T.B. cleaning, and valve clearance adjustment coming up next, hopefully within a couple of weeks. Might be able to resolve some of these 12 monkeys noted below, but we'll see. :coffee:

    Remarks: Updated:12/03/2020
    1. -Rear right brake- Scratching sound when the wheel rotates. Either the parking brake or the pad.
    2. -Oil pressure Switch- The area is leaking but I need to double check on this again.
    3. -Cabin Air Filters- Pretty sure they're nasty AF.
    4. -SRS Air Bag Service Recall- Need to visit the dealership before the swap happens.
    5. -L. Headlight wiring- It's not turning on, and it keeps blowing out the fuse. Makes me want to replace the whole wire harnesses now haha.
    6. -Fuel injection- When it fires up at a start, it ignites fine but the fuel sounds like it isn't getting injected / pumped out effectively. Got the fuel injector relay replaced very recently but I feel like the fuel pump is due soon. Accord is doing a similar thing on a rare occasion, but if it's really the fuel pump, I'll hold on to this, since the pumps aren't interchangeable and not related to the swap. Added the fuel injector cleaner to the tank.
    7. -Spool Valve- Waited until 4800 RPM, but I still can't hear the VTEC kicking in yo. The spool valve housing / the solenoid is probably done. I might leave this as is, and transfer the one from my Accord, when the swap begins, since they're interchangeable.
    8. -P.S. Rack- It's leaking but I'll ignore this since it's not a swap-related issue.
    9. -Passenger's side seat- It isn't reclining lol. Gave a little search up in Azine, and it turned out to be a very common issue for these particular seats, due to corrosions / rusts on the gear. That's how it gets stuck, and why it doesn't move. It supposedly can be fixed by re-greasing the gear and forcing it to turn 'n click again with a use of a flat screw driver.
    10. -Audio Head Unit- The Bose radio works nice, but the compact disc playa is not in the game. I might buy a used oem head unit from eBay, since getting it fixed by the dealership will be in a higher price.
    11. -Trunk/Q.P. water leakage- Checked the spare tire enclosure, and there was a glass full of rain water underneath the tire lol!:doh: Traced the wet zones, and it was dripping from the side of the trunk panel. Would have not discovered this, if it wasn't parked outside. Gonna leave a couple of catch cans, since it won't get fixed up lol.
    12. -Wheel Bearing hub(?)- Noticed some obvious noise, which seems to be somewhat suspension related.

    Updated 2021! Welcome to my CL's thread. :)

    Got this car as a donor car for my Accord to do the 6-6 swap. Was trying to get the engine & MT by itself gutted out, but since this vendor was taking forever to sell me one, I found this running J32 6MT with wheels on instead, with a surprisingly good vehicle history, though it's relatively a high mileage car.
