Very nice mate :)

With engine mounts and FD2 pump the vibrations may be horrible, they'll settle down over time.

I am aware that it may cause vibration issues , fd2 oil pump , mounts and Decat are being fitted on Tuesday. Inlet manifold will be done at a later date, nearer to when I can get it mapped. Currently have an Rsk, Milltek cat back and flash pro with group n map. Hopefully will be ok with that map for the moment...

I cried when I first started it up and drove home. Thought I'd thrown over a grand away as I was contemplating putting the OEM pump back on. Took ages to settle (circa 1-2k miles) but after that you'd be hard pushed to notice the noise / vibrations without the mount inserts.

Should bring a smile to your face as the mods you chose changes the nature of the car completely. Just stay out of vtec as much as possible until it's mapped to be safe :thumbsup:

I see you have an fd2 pump in yours, did you go with a sump baffle too?

Also, have you gone with a Hondata map or Ecutek?

Just flashpro as I like to datalog and not keen on the gimicks.

I have a clockwise baffle mate.

Got the pump, mount inserts and Decat fitted today... You really weren't kidding about the vibrations!!! It is absolutely horrific, everything seems to resonate , rattle and drone through the whole car. Had all 3 mounts fitted, not sure if I may have been better just doing 2 as others have...not sure if I will be able to live with it as it is day to day!
On the plus side, gear shifts feel loads more crisp

I just took the top dog bone one out, the rest and pump will definitely settle bud.

Just wait until you can have a blast once it's mapped. Makes the car feel so much more responsive ;)
It may vibrate a bit in vtec but again this settles right down.

I also had the red race grade polybush inserts... my god you can't imagine how bad it was :lol:

Are you still using the Red ones?

I assume the top one transmits the vibration into the cabin...

If you were starting again, who would you have do your mapping?

I am based in Norwich, no one local can do it, so will have to travel anyway

I was none the wiser mate, didn't even know there were blue ones until I saw @Lamberto's.... the joy on my face when I swapped them over to the softer blue ones :laugh2:

The top one helps stop wheel hop quite a bit but transmits the vibrations into the cabin, rattled my whole dash and could feel the valvetrain in my teeth lol

For mapping there's TDi North, Romain or EFi in Runcorn I'd personally use. Romain was too far for me so I used TDi as they're literally walking distance but I'll be trying EFi next.

Nothing wrong with TDi's map on the track but on a daily it's really aggressive, managed to settle it down a bit myself tweaking some values and only thing left is throttle tip-in. As you feed the throttle from zero it jerks the whole car so roundabouts and longer corners it can unsettle the weight. Once I have time I was going to see if EFi can tidy part throttle up, if not I'll admit defeat and accept that it's a characteristic of the motor. My money would be on either of those three, you'll get a good map either way but from what people have told me EFi may spend a little longer on PT. I'll see in the next month or two once I get booked in, worst case I have TDi's revised cal which is 95% spot on.
