    Ok I just swapped a b20 into my eg coupe. I need to know which dipstick tube I can use? Can I just use the b20 one but it needs to be bent to fit under the hood. I tried one from a b16 but it doesnt want to stay in place. It comes out when I take out the dipstick. I really need to know guys. Thnx.

    Ok my b20 came with a long dipstick tube ( probably stock). The dipstick that I got with it was not long enough (proabably a different one not meant for the tube). The mechanic that installed the motor had to bend the tube so it could fit underneath the hood along with bending the dipstick. I want to know which tube I can use so that I dont need to bend and that will stay in place when I take the dipstick out. The b20 tube has a lip that catchs on a lip on the block when its inserted into it. The b16 tube doesnt have a lip on the end where it inserted to catch on the block therefore it comes out with the dipstick. I hope that clears everything up. Anyone else have to bend the tube or did they have a shorter tube?

    You see all that nasty oil all over the side of the head, how dark in color it is... yea thats due to the cam plug being bad.

    Questions are what this board is for. The part for OEM is like $10, to get an aftermarket cam plug such as STR or Golden Eagle its liek $20, these are billet and look bad ass.. As far as the install goes, its simple if you basically know how to remove the valve cover, then remove a cam cap... pretty simple... well as long as you have mechanical ability. AIM = integra11to1

    I dont have a clue why the dipstick is like that. Maybe a b20 one will work. There has to be a shorter version. OH and Brian thnx for the help bud. :worthy:
