Its #TunerTuesday here at Firm400 and we are delighted to feature one of our very first product accessory installation tutorials! Our friends at JDM Sport have just released their NEW series of JDM Sport Valve Cover Washer Dress-Up Kits into the automotive aftermarket for Honda enthusiasts. We thought it would be awesome to capture stills of the installation process and share it with tuners who are looking to upgrade and accessorize their engine components with JDM Sport products. This feature can give our readers a better understanding of installing products and taking the necessary safety precautions as we look forward to producing more content for our automotive enthusiasts! The JDM Sport Valve Cover Washers are available for the Honda Civic B-Series, D-Series, & K-Series applications. In this tutorial, we are covering the installation for the Honda Civic B-Series.

Before the initial install, the most important thing is to make sure that your engine is completely cooled down! Considering you are removing the valve cover, spark plug wires, and additional hardware, your safety is very important so make sure you follow directions or seek a professional for assistance.

Necessary tools needed for the install:

Ratchet Set

Allen Key



Shop Rags

Here are the steps to installing your JDM Sport Honda Civic B-Series Valve Cover Washers:

1) Remove the four outer bolts that surround & hold the valve cover in place.

2) Remove the center bolts from the spark plug wire cover (if applicable)

3) Next, remove the spark plug wire cover & carefully remove and unplug the spark plug wires

4) Now remove the inner bolts that surround the spark plug wires & carefully remove the valve cover.

5) You can now safely unscrew the inner bolts that surrounded the spark plug wires and replace them with the JDM Sport replacement bolts/screws.

6) Repeat Step 5 only replacing the outer bolts/screws that were originally removed in Step 1.

7) Make sure all screws are properly tightened and secured.

8) Next, put the valve cover back in place. Make sure your spark plug wires are plugged in and tightly secured.

9) Now here's the fun part! Open the up the package of JDM Sport Honda Civic B-Series Valve Cover Washers which includes the rubber o-rings & screws.

10) Place the rubber o-rings on the outer back rim of each valve cover washer.

11) Get the larger valve cover washers and place them on the outer screws that were replaced from the valve cover. Tighten the washers with the screws that were included in the package.

12) You are almost done! The rest of the washers are to be placed in the center bolts of the valve cover alongside the spark plug wires where you had originally removed in the beginning of this tutorial. Tighten the screws to secure the washers and there you have it!

Your JDM Sport Honda Civic B-Series Valve Cover Washers are now installed! Congratulations!
