and THIS ladies and gentlemen, is why you don't buy ebay products!!!

so i finally figured out my overheating problem.... leaking radiator.
i bought this radiator 4 years ago off ebay, just a generic civic 1/2 rad, seen here:
ENG: Civic 1/2 rad into 4th gen

i'd say i got my $250 worth between the rad and fan, but i just got my mishimoto + FAL in last night, and swapped the two of them in an hour



one side. booooo



other side. womp womppp



new mishi on top, is like 50% thicker than the ebay.



didn't bother taking after installed pics, cuz it looks 95% identical to the other one, just with a mishimoto tag on the side, and the fan looks different.

That is the one thing bad about eBay products: the lack of a warrant or anywhere convenient to return it.

I hate dealing with eBay merchants because their products are ****!

Yeah, most of them are. You just have to be careful about what you buy. Things like lips and bumper lenses usually aren't too bad. Things that are integral to an engine's running properly should not be purchased on eBay.

My short shifter adaptor broke within 2 weeks of installation. Imagine that happening to your rack and pinion. Dont trust ebay shizzle with the important stuff.

Re: and THIS ladies and gentlemen, is why you don't buy ebay products!!!

Folks you don't get something for nothing.

Ebay is full of pie in the sky promises where you get solid gold for silver prices.

The generic stuff is usually junk knock offs. But if you are careful and do some homework there are many great items available.
Example
B21 radiator fan $35. Fan, motor and shroud. 1 year warranty. No thanks. Too good to be true imo.

B21 oem fan motor $135. Sounds awful. But the motor from Honda nearly twice that. So some leg work later I discovered it was indeed made by the same folks that make the Honda part.
I ended up using a junkyard fan lol. $15
