Just looking on e-bay and saw this engine girdle. Never heard of one before and was just wondering your guys take on what this will really help with. My roomie knows a bit and isnt familiar with it either, so I figured you guys would probably know. Link just in case u wish to look : http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&rd=1&item=7954247044&category=33613&sspagename=WDVW
Yeah… these help the crank from straying from its designed course.
GS-R or Type R Main Cap Bolts, Oil Pump Pickup, Windage Tray, and Oil Pan are required for the install.
edit: They come stock on GS-R’s and Type R’s.
depending on your setup. if you are going all out or just some thing that will just rev to 8 or 8.5 then you dont have to have it. im running lsv w/o it and rev it to 8.5 every other week for the last 2 summers and still running fine.
^ If you read my post, I never said you had to have it. But there’s obviously a reason Honda included it STOCK on some vehicles.
