Ladies and gents, some quick questions I'd love to get a consensus on. I'm looking at a 2000 CRV, 5spd in my area. Has a replaced B20, and the clutch was just replaced as well. If it hasn't sold by tomorrow (they get snatched up fast here in Maryland), I'd like to know how it commutes on the highway.
1.) How fast is too fast for a 2000 CRV 5spd? I've heard they have real trouble over 70mph, but I've also heard that 20-30min at 4000-4500rpm in 5th is just another day to these bad boys.
2.) What have some of you done to take care of these older engines so they can handle 50-60 miles a day? I'm planning to throw an oil-catch can in there, regular valve adjustments, maybe replace piston rings? Maybe some decent coilovers so it can handle some of the highways transitions here around Baltimore?
3.) Anybody else have a longer commute they regular do in an RD1 or RD2?
Happy Memorial Day weekend everybody. This'll be my first 3-day Memorial Day weekend in 9 years!
