Over the decade, we have grown exponentially, with an escalating emphasis on the export business.

Lets talk sq**rt, shoot, dribble, leak and incontinence.

Acura RDX Injectors, a popular upgrade injector when more fuel is needed. They are a convenient drop-in upgrade to many cars and flow 410cc/min.

For reference.
Honda B series injectors - 240cc/min
Honda K series non Type R injectors - 270cc/min
Honda K series Type R injectors - 310cc/min

Anyway, we have been selling and using these since 2007. Many of our customers would have experienced these first hand.

In recent years however, with the advent of online shopping and many fakes available, how do we distinguish between the genuine parts Made by Honda (Denso) and the fakes. Without buying one and having both side by side, you will not know. But 1 of the big tell tale sign is when the advertisement mentions the word OEM; be extra wary when you see that.

So what's wrong with using fake injectors, let's list down just a few possible scenarios from poorly constructed injectors.

1. They may be unable to keep up with fuel pressure and leak.
- inconsistent fueling
- extra fuel sq**rted even after engine is shut down due to fuel pressure (and causing poor hot/warm/cold restarts)

2. Not flow what they say it flows.
- I have personally tested a batch of 100 pcs of these fake RDX injectors on my injector tester. They ranged from 370cc/min to 600cc/min. Good luck if you get 4 pcs from both ends of the spectrum.

3. Injector tips breaking off
- Any foreign object getting into the combustion chamber is unwelcome...

There are a whole host of other reasons... but basically just use original parts (and ensure the shop that sells it to you does not sell you any fakes).

The original one should come in a Khaki colored box with the Honda part number 16450-RWC-A01.

If buying online, get it from a Acura dealership/website and not any other portal. They should be about US$70 per pc, still reasonably cheap for a set of good injectors.

But if you still insist on paying US$45 for 4 pieces of injectors from dubious sources, please inform your tuner truthfully what injectors they are and it's source.

An engine overhaul we did for a Honda Civic FC1 L15 customer.

Glad he no longer has to live in fear of the factory conrod giving way.

Changed the turbo as well. Let's see how much and how long the CVT can withstand.

Only 1 thing I take issue with (the owner)...
Stop telling me your FC1 can now win all your friend's FD2 Type Rs.

Please play nice; making the same power as a stock FK8 Type R on the mainline dyno isn't that much to boast about. Plenty other RWD and bigger cc cars will chew your little 1.5L ego up and spit you out.

Be-Have. Or I'd rather not Have you...

Text also copied from same website:
Most people in the Singapore area would never give their catalytic converter a second thought. But in these times we live in, this vehicle component is becoming a major target for thieves, especially the Toyota Prius. If you don’t have a safe place to park your Prius, or you have to leave it unattended for long periods of time in a less than desirable location, you could become a victim.

In order to protect our precious Hondas, anyone agrees we should fabricate these extra undertray protection from prying eyes and potential theft???

The precious metal in there is a gold (Rhodium) mine. Please see recent price history of these precious metal in your cat.

Customers will know by now, why all the used catalytic converters are no longer available to be had for cheap on carousell anymore. 🤣🤣🤣

When should you change your spark plugs?

Had a Civic Type R FK8 done 15,000km. Full bolt on mods, tuned, and made good power since car was at 1,000km.

Owner drives it hard, and recently developed a mild misfiring issue.

Told him to get his plugs checked, but he said plugs were supposed to be good for 100,000km... 🤣

OK, let's put the car on the dyno to check it out...

And so...

Dear customer, my grandmother driving a regular Civic with a CVT box, 130hp and below 2,000rpm all day. Yes, plugs could probably last the life of the car (till our 10 years COE expires).

However with a FK8 and it's manual transmission, driving above 4,000rpm all day, always beating on it, boosting it at 1.8 bar whenever possible, aiming for top speed NSHW runs, many Sepang track days, etc.

You can imagine how many more times the plugs has to spark, the amount of heat it has to dissipate, driving that same 15,000km as compared to most other cars.

Thankfully, we swapped the plugs and the car instantaneously performed flawlessly.

We sell NGK plugs, they are the only plugs we recommend.

PSA: Please only use NGK for spark plugs. Thank you. (You can try to read between the lines however you want for this PSA.) 😝

Finally had time to tear apart a FK8 K20C1 engine. They supposedly need stronger rods in order to withstand a big increase in torque (and horsepower). Was not going to risk blowing any of these pricey and new engines up, so better to just get it done right from the get go.

Thanx Joel for doing up my car! Told the kid I removed the +R Mode Liao; she was surprised and disappointed - but after first pull, she quickly peeked over to see if I had turned on the red R mode and when she saw didn't light up, she smiled and asked "How come no more R mode, the car feels like it's in R Mode?" She could tell! 😂 told her that's what uncle Joel did for us to enjoy R mode without the hard springs activated 😂 🎉 🙌! Hondata ftw! Thanx Honda Doc 😉
Western Australia is lucky to have Joel Cheong (Driven Singapore) just across the waters to help us out anytime!! Hondata Flashpro now available for international use!!!
Got from Joel Cheong a J*p charcoal a/c filter for my FK2R. Reasonably priced, great fitment. FK2R owners, what are you guys waiting for?!
