    Yup. Automakers cutting corners wherever the hell they can. Honda jumped on the bus.

    Old man honda is rolling over in his grave.

    and aftermarket i/m's especially for the d17 can reach around 1,400s at least they have an option to get rid of that dumb top mount tho.

    Has anybody tried using a Y8 manifold on the D17 engines? Seems like that might be a decent and cheap alternative to after-market, assuming that you could easily make it work of course...

    yea some people do. *edit* it takes custom fab work to get it to work. but its an option. but people pushing big numbers on the d17 turbos use an aftermarket i.m from jdm fabtec. but like i said its costly.

    The reason that happens in the same reason it happens in 302 intake manis

    they are extremely bad at puddling the Nitrous into certain pockets and then it gets hot....... BOOM.

    Direct port ftw.

    Im glad ive got an older honda. Despite all that plastic, new cars are much heavier too.

    I'm starting to question some of the newer Hondas too. I've seen Civics in the autowecker with 400,000-500,000 kms on them and the Odysseys couldn't get 80,000 out of a transmission.

    A lot of the 96 and up Hondas have the most issues. I know the 96-00 D16Y's having issues with oiling, thus you see a whole bunch of them with spun bearings or thrown rods.

    I just don't see why they would run nitrous on a plastic manifold. They're just asking for trouble.
