Question fellas.... I did a wire tuck, but now when I use the turn signals they flash really fast as if they were not plugged in..... I'm assuming, or inducing more rather, that this is because I have extended the wires and the current is too weak for the car to register the lights as being plugged in.... How do I get them back to normal?

You either have either wired something incorrectly, have a bad bulb or another electrical problem somewhere. Ive had 3 wire tucked crx's and never had any problem with mine.

I read through the write up and either missed it or it wasn't mentioned. Where do you run the wires through on an Si? I've read other how-to's on this but the ones I seen are all non Si models and have a pre-existing hole with a grommet in it you can use. I was thinking about going through the hole for the loom that goes into the door but that seems kinda awkward. Any ideas?

On the driver side I went through the grommet for the hood release cable.
On the passenger side, I went through the grommet for the wire loom for the door.

ok cool, i started going through the grommet for the door loom but thought i would see what someone else did first in case there was issues. I haven't started the driver side yet. Thanks.

You may have to swap some plugs depending on what year B16 you get. You will also have to add a few wires for VTEC. There are probably a couple other changes too I'm unaware of.

Got a question I got a stock 88dx and yes still dual point and wanna do a wire tuck since I dont see myself registering my car anytime soon but when I swap will I have to do the whole tuck again or will i just have to unwrap add wires then wrap again? Also will the tuck make it a really big pain in my ass to add vtec the other two injectors etc :|
