I am ordering a few of these S2000 filters to go into my set. I am going to use the Honda (Fram) oil filter for a 75 miles service, then train. The next on will the Honda (Fram) oil filter being run with copper gasket fixers and run it for 200 miles. Finally, I will switch to the JDM Honda HAMP oil filters with AMSOIL. . I new to order the S2000 oil filters for back up filters.

Are you doing a new shortblock or just want to flush out any nonsense from it sitting ? Either way sounds like a thorough procedure. I idled the k24 a few times then did an initial oil change , after about 150-200 miles did another one and now I’m almost at 400 miles on it. At 500 I will probably do one more flush with the supertech oil and oem filter. I have looked up testing done of this Walmart synthetic oil against the big dogs and it performed very well, not to mention for half the price 😅

I had some time this morning to change my starter out , I have been experiencing intermittent non start issues with just the solenoid clicking and after several voltage tests coming back good over the last week I concluded its not the battery, but the starter that was my issue.

Unknown denso auto starter I purchased ($20)from a friend initially for the swap alongside the used auto CRV starter from LKQ(53$) (I like buying from these guys because all the parts are tested ) the two pieces look pretty different but everything works the same. ALL USDM k20/24 starters are compatible , the Jdm models do not work !

All done !

not only is my cranking sounding better but there is no delay between the key turning and the starter engaging, before there would be a slight hesitation upon key on before the car would crank, if it would at all. I feel much better about taking the car out now 😎
