    last night i just droped a b18c1 in my 93 civic hatch and when i looked at it today, it seems like it might be sitting a little to high for my hood to close. i used the stock teg mounts. everything went in ok but it just looks a lil high. does anyone know anyhing bout this. id hate to put it all together just to find out i gotta do it again.

    2" head gasket?
    engine's in upside down?

    seriously tho,
    do you have a CF or aftermarket hood of some type, with a stock hood, should close fine.

    i have a carbon fiber hood that wont come close
    the stock hood only shuts when i get the first latch then press real hard to shut it the rest of the way and you can see where it is hitting there is a guy with the same swap as me and he has the same problem

    Well i am not even 100% sure.I mean i would ask around more.I think it is the mounts because of so many post like this i have seen.This about the 10th post i have seen like this.Most of the time they fix it by buying an ugly hood scoop :( I hope you find a better fix to this problem.But calling hasport cant hurt i guess.Keep us informed

    yeah ive also heard about hasport thats why i started this to make sure i wont have probs with stock ones. and that bitch closed right up it doesnt even touch the hood.



    i say you take out the hasport mounts, sel them if you can,and get stock ones.

    I've never heard of a hood not closing with a B18C and Hasport mounts in an EG.
    An EF, but never an EG. Sounds like you need to adjust you're hood latch. Also check the diameter of the catch on the carbon fiber hood. If it's larger than the stock hood's, then the latch won't close on it.

    Oh yeah, I work for Hasport.
