Did you add the electromagnetism pulse protection? I feel this is non-negotiable.
Didn’t feel the need, I thought it extravagant lol
I try to stay away from thinking about cars since it's completely unnecessary in my area and actually a big nuisance, and very costly. But dammit:
I usually don't geek out over cars, trucks, etc. That being said, only a few exceptions come to mind such as this-
First world problem thread crossover: I'd like to take this moment to thank Honda's designers for putting the 8th gen Civic's starter behind a CV axle and an exhaust pipe.
That’s just as bad as some of the 6cyl E46 BMWs with it between the top of the gearbox bell housing and the bulkhead.... wtf bro
This is the car that I would have designed when I was 12 years old.
If I had multiple PhDs in engineering.
And an unlimited budget.
Oh, and it would have turned into a giant robot too!
Seems like German cars are notorious for design choices like that. One of my friends had a VW that needed a new water pump, but the shop was going to need to take the entire front clip off the car to get to it. All the labor involved made the repair quote so expensive he just ditched the thing. Still though, I guess it seems more reasonable to want a starter to be accessible than a water pump.
In other news, I managed to maneuver my starter into its near-unreachable position, past a tight and super stiff wiring harness, and fasten the top mounting bolt that can only be seen from places where it can't be reached. What a PITA. I would have paid the extra $100 for an OEM Honda starter if I knew how annoying it was to replace because I sure don't want to do it again!
