I think i see where most of my oil leak is coming from now. the backside of that breather box is wet with oil and it looks like it is running down the back of the block and landing on the exhaust manifold. In addition to that, my ITR oil cooler also seems to have a slight seep and that is also running down and hitting the exhaust manifold. It smells lovely... When i installed the cooler, i bought all new hoses and o-ring and also during my tear down, i removed that breather box and replaced the o-ring where it "snaps" into place on the block. It looks like i will have to do this again. How do i replace the o-ring on the oil cooler and have it not leak? I torqued it to spec in the manual. Same goes for the breather box. I don't recall seeing anything to tighten down specifically to that o-ring, so I'm not sure how I could have messed up that install.
Also, I took this past Friday off of work. Someone let me know that there was an integra at a local u-pull yard. Found this guy and immediately started tearing stuff off. I took some odds and ends interior pieces and clips, the headliner, the one door panel (someone trashed the other ones), the driver's sides door glass (someone trashed the passenger sides) the cruise control switch, i tried taking the one a/c line but the bolts are waay to rusted and rounded to get anything on, i got the window motors and regulators, the rear door vapor barriers (surprisingly intact) , some bumper clips, and a couple of other odds and ends for a little less than $100. I'm super happy about the door glass. its all OEM honda glass still and no visible scratches. Mine are all scratched to hell and back because those little felt pads are toast i think. So i also grabbed all of those of this car too lol. I think i will go back and get the sunroof. I don't need it, but it is in really great condition and it is too cheap not to get it. Especially since i did all of the work already removing the headliner.
