  1. What did you do to your G1 Insight today?

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    I've been thinking the same thing for a while now. Given the Nathan's extensive modifications, the FCD gauge readings are meaningless in comparison to other Insights. I would want to see 3-5 tank-to-tank fill ups with a minimum of 8 gallons per refueling. The tires also need to be the stock...
  2. The Frankentrans: A tale of 6% and the union of Insight, HCH and Fit transmission parts.

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    The shift arrows are unaffected. In fact, even with an HCH Swap, the upshift arrow does not illuminate in 5th gear.
  3. The Frankentrans: A tale of 6% and the union of Insight, HCH and Fit transmission parts.

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    I haven't yet collected some good A/B fuel economy data. While I have gotten slightly worse fuel economy overall with the Frankentrans vs when the stock transmission was in, it's more likely that is contributable to external factors like traveling with 150 pounds of extra stuff in the car...
  4. The Frankentrans: A tale of 6% and the union of Insight, HCH and Fit transmission parts.

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    ...Continued. Modification Time Having done all the research I could, I worked out a time with Scott (KLR3CYL) to once again travel 1,100 miles down to Jue Motors, in Covina, CA so that we could accomplish the re-gearing. Scott and I are good friends. Scott works for and is long-time friends...
  5. The Frankentrans: A tale of 6% and the union of Insight, HCH and Fit transmission parts.

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    ...Continued. The graphs below help illustrate the differences. Clicking/tapping on the images below will bring up a larger version of them. Utilizing the more evenly spaced HCH 2nd, 3rd, and 4th ratios, really helps smooth out the ratio spread between gears. Here is an overlay of the above...
  6. The Frankentrans: A tale of 6% and the union of Insight, HCH and Fit transmission parts.

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    ...Continued. Two Steps Sideways In March of 2019, I performed a Honda Civic Hybrid (HCH) transmission swap on my 2006 Honda Insight. After 5,000 miles, I concluded that the HCH’s 12.2% lower 5th gear was too low for my taste. In my HCH Transmission Swap Anthology, I concluded with, “It would...
  7. Has anyone rebuilt a 5sp trans or need a rebuild

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    You should consider posting the name of this sham company so we can know to avoid them. Shameless plug for a friend time: Scott (KLR3CYL) in Covina, CA rebuilds these transmissions for $800 (IIRC), and that involves a complete teardown. Every part is washed and cleaned. Every bearing inside the...

    I have consolidated both threads into this one. The posts in this thread may appear a little jumbled as a result. Furthermore I am going to lock this thread because this is the wrong forum in which to attempt to sell your Insight. If you would like to offer you car for sale, I suggest you...

  12. HCH1 IMA Battery Recondition Project 2019

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    The HCH1 has a PWM controlled fan. There are no resistors. Edit: I forget what happens if you let the PWM line float.
  13. Found a simple power adder for the insight G1

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    This is a garbage product. Too much marketing, too little hard data. A cursory inspection reveals that the creator has been shilling this dumpster fire on internet forums for years now. Yea! Lets just strap on an incomplete $2500 forced induction kit and do nothing about fuel management. What...
  14. CRZ CR-Z seats installed into first gen Insight.

    Modifications and Technical Issues
    In what unit was your scale measuring in? 4915.8 is a bizarre number. Doesn't make sense in ounces (307.24 LB) or grams (10.84 LB).
  15. Does anyone know why I was banned?

    I am also locking this thread because there is nothing left to discuss. Any further posts made by ADDvanced's alternate account will be summarily deleted.

    ADDvanced, Just so that you don't go off thinking you were a unjust victim of a misunderstanding here are some things you need to know. 1. When you posted this: Problem #1: This whole post in inflammatory and doesn't serve any constructive purpose. Problem #2: The use of profanity is...
  17. 05 Insight 5sp manual rebuild

    Honda Insight Forum 1st-Gen Discussion
    You could trawl through the Honda parts diagrams and find what you are looking for there, but that's doing it the hard way. The guy you want to talk to is Scott, aka KLR3CYL. Conveniently, his post is the one above mine.
  18. 2012 insight ex stock radio upgrade

    Modifications and Technical Discussions
    You should be good to post links after your first post. The Metra harness should plug into the dashboard wire harness. Your Kenwood unit should have come with it's own wiring harness. You will then solder, or preferably crimp, the flying leads from both the Metra and the Kenwood hardness...
