View Full Version : Hello EPHATCH!

I bought an 05 NHBP Civic SI in November 2008. This is my second EP3. I bought a 03 SI new off the lot in 2003 and got a great deal. Great car, had fun but I thought I needed something bigger so I ended up trading up for a Pilot in 05. I was wrong, I ended up trading down to a 03 CRV 5 speed 4x4 and decided I had lived for long enough without an EP. I love this car.
I have been looking at this site for a while and have done some simple mods, I installed an RSX wiper to get intermittent speed sensitive wiper, put a system in, bought some Eibach springs that are sitting in my garage and am interested in a Rev Hard Turbo.


I plan on keeping the car forever, maybe my son will be the kid rocking out the antique civic in 2025.

Welcome, just a quick question do we need to change out the pins on the harness of an EP to get it to work or is it easier on our cars then on a CRV?

05-23-2008, 09:35 PM
To get this to work on our cars you need to add to 2 wires/pins to the RSX wiper stalk and route the wires into the fusebox. I found a link on ephatch that shows the location: http://www.ephatch.com/forum/showthread.php?t=7305&highlight=intermittent+wiper

This is actually pretty easy if you have 2 wires with the right connections on either end.

And sorry it's virtually the same as the crv
