mine had ca. 18k miles on it according to EJ. still spins perfectly with no detectable bearing lash.Finally!! Belt and idler pulley issue has been fixed. Car scheduled for some time on the dyno this Friday. Show of hands, how many of you have a Sprintex and how many miles have you put on the Sprintex? I'm curious to see if this kit will hold up to daily use and the occasional track day.
everything's OK . but my Honda 2011 and it is manual. changed inlet to cold (openn intaike) and outlet to 2 inches (Outlet 60MM Inlet Exhaust ). switched off egr and second lamda
When was the last time you checked/changed out the gear fluid? I do hear noise from mine but have assumed it's the twin screw propellors making the noise.When idling does anyone else’s Sprintex have a grindy metal whirring noise? It’s hard to capture on video with all the other engine ticking. I’ve always wondered if that’s normal.
I have romiata’s CRZ, so the Sprintex has been used ALOT and has been installed for many years. How many exactly I’m not sure - I’d have to dig in his old build thread.
The install instructions say to use redline 75-w90 ns gear fluid. Might be time to check fluid and change it out.Gear fluid? I have some bottle of special oil that came with the car - I’m not at home so I can’t remember the name. I think it’s for gears lol? But I had it changed before I brought it to the dragon in 2018. So it’s been maybe 3000 miles since it’s been changed. It’s always made the noise though. Maybe I’ll try to get it on video next week. I may drive it next week - salt has been washed away and it’s going to be in 50s around thanksgiving!
Wow! A rebuild kit is available? ....Found the site for Jon Bond Performance, after google tried to get me to go to Jon bon Jovi, lol.Not sure if mine sounds the same. I don't have any belt squeel. If your internals are worn out you can get a rebuild kit for about $350 from Jon bon performance.
Good idea about the tube! I need to use up a roll of toilet paper now :lol:
Yes I remember having her tell me that, so I had a shop change the fluid before Dragon 2018 along with serpentine belt.
It may have gone so long without changing something inside is permanently making that noise. 🙄 I just put 12V back in this CRZ today and will be driving it the next few days. Will try to remember to get a video of the sound.
