  1. I'm sorry, how? A thrust bearing is a thrust bearing. It maybe FWD - but still the thrust bearing itself is not an expensive item. The clutch needs to come out in order to replace it - therefore labour costs will be expensive. Go to www.ozhonda.com and sign up there. Better advice for Hondas. To replace the bearing the gearbox needs to come off. To ensure that it doesn't wear down quickly after being replaced all of the internals of the box needs to be removed and individually cleaned to ensure there is no sediment remaining, otherwise the bearing will wear very quickly and you'll most likely find yourself replacing it 6 months later. This is where the cost comes from, and generally I think it's around the $400-500 mark for somebody to remove your box and put it on again. blah blah blah - go to OzHonda's yeah, but still cars are cars - its a simple question - he wasn't asking what site to join up.... Anyway Question answered. My post was useful. Your's was pretty much pointless, not constructive or beneficial to the thread at all.

  3. You mean input shaft bearing? If that's what you're talking about then you'll probably be looking at $500+
  4. fresh rebuilt sr20det

    You're supposed to change the oil after like 500km because it gets dirty while the engine wears in. If I were you I'd contact the people who rebuilt it for you and discuss it with them, no point people here shooting off random ideas just yet
  5. Hi guys, My name is Andy and I'm from Melbourne east-side. I'm 22 and work full time as a Division 1 nurse at Box Hill hospital in a neuro-medical ward. I've been a car enthusiast since I first got my hands on Gran Turismo 1 on PlayStation and have had a lot of soft spots for different cars over the years. Have mostly been a Honda fanatic and currently own a '94 Civic sedan as my daily and a '90 JDM CRX SiR as my weekend/project car. The Silvia is my favorite Nissan. Now that I work full time and have owned Hondas for three years I'm starting to think about trying something new. Something RWD, something turbo, and something just generally different from the Honda platform (the idea of doing another Honda build just makes me want to light up a smoke). Of the S-series I would have to say that the S15 is my favorite for looks. I think towards the late 90's and early 2000's there was a shift in the automotive market towards cars with less 'curved' bodies and more 'angular' bodies. I think Nissan did this well with examples like the S15 and R34, whereas Honda f**ked it up pretty bad with the Integra and Civic. So I'm starting to watch the market for a nice S15 and I thought I'd join up here to get a better feel for the price range and also check out some of the discussion. Hope you fellas don't mind having me round!
