    Of course I searched, and read all the DIYs on TB install/bumper removal etc. What I'm looking for is the out of ordinary steps/certain challenging steps. Also... civics suck.

    Nice. I did mine ~2weeks ago. Try to not disconnect everything in the front, then just slide them to the side so you can access the engine. Would save you some time/headache

    MAKE SURE to have one of those white-out pens handy to mark the cam and crank cogs' positions. I used a sharpie and couldnt see the marks during re-assembly. remember to reconnect the low-pressure sensor to the A/C evap container when you re-install the bumper. also, take your time, rushing the job will be less enjoyable and possibly cause mistakes.

    Rotate the motor by hand about 5 times after you've re-assembled the timing belt components.

    Then line it back up to TDC and make sure the cam sprocket is still lined up before you start putting the whole car back together.

    Use distilled water to mix with the G12 coolant. Tap water has minerals in it that will cause corrosion and deposits in the cooling system. You can get a gallon of distilled water at your local drugstore for $2.

    You need the o-ring for the thermostat, and if you are planning to change the crank seal you will need a special tool and a new bolt to put it back on with. The cam sprocket has an alignment marking on it to match up to a marking on the valve cover and if aligned properly you should see that there are 4 holes on the crank sprocket and one of them will be in line with a hole at like 10/11 o'clock from the sprocket. That will tell you that piston one is at TDC. As always, make an extra mark on the crank sprock and block just to be safe.

    good luck and dont worry, its easy.

    oh, one more thing. You dont want any slack between the cam sprocket and the crank sprocket following the belt around to the right from cam to crank, and put the tensioner roller (the little roller on the leaf in pic three) on last, its easy to do if you have a buddy helping and will make putting the belt on much easier.

    the actual gasket is a lot easier to install than the oring style gasket. I would imagine it being a more reliable seal as well.

    should, it's basically the same thermostat as honda and a lot of other manufacturer's use.
