  1. I agree. It is really only interfacing with the electrical connector. The hose will only be connected as a token piece but not affecting anything. Possibly stated for ease of reattachment or as reminder to plug back into the 5 way. But they do make typos in those manuals from time to time, so they cannot always be taken as 100% accurate
  2. The first time I did it about 2 years ago using my Carbtune. I referenced this well done video from a VFRD member (link below). If you pick it up at 3:20 he states why the MAP is better off being disconnected of vacuum and electrical connections. I did the sync without the connections and afterwards there was a nice improvement. This time I will do it with vacuum and electrics connected as the manual states ( Grum notice the manual says both should be connected). If anyone has any further input feel free to chime in. Sometimes these manuals either misprint or are proven wrong by practical experiences. I did the CCT swap a while ago, the manual states for the upper CCT that removal of throttle body was necessary but here I found that with just the airbox removed and extra long needle nose pliers the upper CCT was easily replaced. I did it without any problems and saved hours of labor.
  3. I am going to do a starter valve sync soon and have read different approaches as to whether the MAP electrical connector and it's vacuum hose should be attached or disconnected. The manual shows that they both should be, but I have read on VFRD and VFR World varying opinions on as to if they should or should not be attached. Any insights?
  4. You are most welcome. Come on folks, lets each do our part to keep VFRD going. Just one post of DYI performance, diagnosis or repair information you get here is a heck of a lot better than going to the dealer, buying the wrong equipment or wasting hours doing something the hard way. So any donation will pay for itself in no time.

  6. If you have a Honda car dealer nearby the Honda Blue Type 2 coolant is the exact same formula as the Pro Honda HP Coolant, only the color is different (Blue vs. Green). In the event you do not here is the Amazon link. $22.00 a gallon including shipping. https://www.amazon.com/Genuine-Honda-Long-Life-Coolant/dp/B006YX9YZE/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1548514551&sr=8-1&keywords=honda+coolant+type+2+blue
  7. This is the link for the tensioner replacement without throttle body removal guide. I used this and it was very straight forward. Took about two no rush hours to do both. No need to rush and just be careful when removing and inserting them that the plunger at the end stays on. Those throttle bodies are a pain and not necessary to remove. http://www.vfrdiscussion.com/index.php?/forums/topic/76-cam-chain-tensioner-without-throttle-body-removal/

  9. I used a mini vice grip and they came out pretty easy. No way they were coming out with a philips.
  10. Just to be 100.1% sure, I installed my Mellodude PAIR rear block off plate (will do front next week) and as in the first pic left the plate with the holes in, left 4 of the the components in the second pic out and as in pic 3 put the plates with the rubber gaskets on, then installed the PAIR blockoff plate. My question is with pic 2, these upper 4 copper colored plates above the gasket plate stay out, correct?
  11. Yeah, sad to say but due to phones and the overall rush to get there a lot of people's driving habits have erroded to the point where you have to look at everyone as a potential road zombie who could do the unexpected at any time. After an accident you just become more acutely aware of this. But with time you will regain the confidence that by being alert you will minimize the odds in your favor. Wear your gear, trust your instincts and remember that being alert while relaxed will put you in the best position to react quickly and accordingly.
  12. Is there any info on the color for the silver wheels that the 6th Gen VFR's have.
  13. Is the color for the silver wheels that the 2006 VFR have on any of these charts, or has anyone used a touchup color from another source? I am looking to touchup a couple of nicks on my wheels.

    Thanks for the replies, she's buttoned up and ready for the first Power Commander test ride. Will report on the hopefully good changes.
