    So he had me drive his 93 Ex coupe... no mods really besides the typical Headers, 2.5 catback, and a stage 2 clutch.... So he just recently replaced his Left CV Join and his Ex trany with another 1 cause his crapped out. So I drove it, pulls normal in 1st, u hit 2nd and right around 4,500 RPM about when VTEC kicks in the car climes in speed but the RPM's clime to about 5-6k and stop while the speed increases then they catch up... I also noticed turning hard right the car's power cuts out totaly... I told him sounds like a clutch , a clutch presure plate issue or a Bad CV join on the right side.... any other adivce be nice... Does this right threw every gear minus 1 and 5th cause I can't get it going that fast!

    well with the acceleration, most of hondas D motors get peak power at around 5000rpm. And with the turning right thing, it sounds like the differental is eather fucked or not workin right.

    just a question what else did you think there would be in the place of a diff:confused:

    also you should check for loose wires around the ecu connections i kind of had a similar problem and it was due to sketchy as wiring going to the ecu

    Wouldnt it be a CV axle in FWD and diff in rwd or 4wd. Because a diff houses the ring and pinion and axle

    What is an LSD? Limited Slip Differential. A stock Honda has an open differential, but a differential none the less.

    Edit: Minus the Type-Rs before some smartass chimes in.

    :werd:

    If you can add in an aftermarket LSD, then there must be a differential there to begin with, right?

    the only difference from a front wheel drive diff and a rear diff is the size and fwd has cv axles not strait axles
