Good to know! I had already bought some but I figure it can’t hurt, worst case is I threw out $15. I’ve already found the place I’ll get my injectors cleaned when I have the cash laying around. I’m just trying to slowly clean everything out so I have my own records- I don’t know the last time a lot of the car maintenance things have been done since I bought it. Especially on the mod pieces.IMO waste of money. But we have debated those cleaners on here before. Think about how small an amount of cleaner you are adding to how much fuel and how diluted it will be by the time it gets to the injectors. If you want to clean the injectors (if even needed) there are services that disconnect the fuel rail, or remove the injectors and put them in a special device or connect to the fuel rail and run the cleaner undiluted directly through the injectors.
Lots of inaccurate information and downright lies when it comes to additives. All fuel has cleaning additives added to it and has for years. You are cleaning your injectors and the whole fuel system every time you drive. Even using the regular fuel specified for the CR-Z unless you are driving a forced induction or other wise modified one.

Since then did a wash, synthetic claybar, touch up paint, polish and wax. Car looks a lot better now but I noticed all the small rock chips in the paint while doing the full wash down. They’re not terrible and you can hardly tell from a few feet away but since I know, it bothers me haha. Also got the locking gas cap for the peace of mind. Slightly annoying that the threads don't fit the holder and with it had a tether.
bought new tires that will be installed Tuesday. Went with General Altimax RT43 since the Pirelli P7s that get a lot of rave reviews are on back order for 6 months. Wondering how the ride changes once swapped!

Seafoaming the engine is KIND OF a real thing. ;-)Got some high quality blinker fluid, re-packed the muffler bearings with new grease, charged the IMA to 1.21 jiggawatts, seafoam'd the engine, high-tension titanium stainless copper alloy ground wires improving electrical flow 103%, vortex air intake and fuel ionizers. All told extra 83 horsepowers.
If your CR-Z has keyless entry, you might have ordered the wrong handle. The one pictures on your screenshot shows only a hole for the key. As you can see below, it should also have another hole for the lock/unlock button.
Good eye! Just requested to have the order cancelled. I jumped on it without thinking when I saw the low low price. Mine has the key and the button holes. Hopefully they will cancel it.If your CR-Z has keyless entry, you might have ordered the wrong handle. The one pictures on your screenshot shows only a hole for the key.

There are two more versions, one with just a button and one with just the key hole, as shown below.

I'd be tempted to do a lightweight clutch when I do the LSD but I just cant seem to kill this stock clutch. It's Honda gave us a beefy clutch from the factory. My other concern is dealing with the phantom misfire from a lightweight clutch kit considering I have to do Emission testing every 2 years.You know that book "if you give a mouse a cookie"?
well, the Wavetrac install has turned into that lol. Just ordered an ogura lightweight clutch.
Should help spool things up a little quicker.
Back from winter hibernation, eh? I think you can be a happy boy with what you've got for rear brakes. If the CR-Z's going to be like my 1st Gen Insight, I'll still have the original rear brakes at 250,000 miles.Just doing my obligatory "I'm still alive" post and talking Bout my Z.
Tinting my windows for a lil summer respite this week.
I also need to get around to servicing my rear brakes. Are their any worthwhile replacements (a la RSX-S in the front) or should I just be a happy boy with what I got?
Seeing the door handles... I need to get on top of that before I start climbing through my passenger door.
Anyways I'll be intending to join you guys for a (my first full) modding journey this summer so prepare to be annoyed ;P
... Back to the working caves I go! Love and miss the energy here!
