    Ok well i got my new Hasport mount kit installed yesterday on my EG with a Type-r and they fit like a glove. They hold the motor in very well and it does not move at all now !!!


    But while i was installing the rear mount i had to disconnect the heater core hose from that nipple that comes off the rear fire-wall under the intake manifold , While doing this i must have broke something loose inside the car . When i started it up i noticed coolant on my passenger side floor :confused: ( car is gutted ) so im sure i broke something . Can i just bypass the heater and run a loop from one end of the motor to the other ? Or will the car heat up ? Since its summer i can live without a heater for now

    You can bypass the heater without any problems. Take the 2 hoses that go into the firewall from the engine and loop them together.

    No problem. Since you're going to lose your heater function anyways, and I'm guessing that you probably aren't running A/C, you can go ahead and pull all the AC/heater components from under your dash, and save a good bit of weight. I'm going to do the exact same thing to my CRX as soon as I get the motivation...lol

    Yea you shouldn't have any problem getting all the shit out from under the dash. We did it to my friends crx a while back and it didn't really take all that much work, but saved a good bit of weight

    Yeah, post count really means nothing. There are quite a few people on this board with a TON of posts, but that have absolutely no clue what they're talking about.

    Wil does know what's going on though.
