but we aren't allowed to spell it out? like we'll get modded for it? is that shit for real?
"Yes, it's a site thing" is the short and easy answer. You don't want the long answer. The guy didn't write asterisks to be an a-hole. This site just censored the website, changing it to asterisks.

I'm planning on doing the CDV delete pretty soon, as well as adding the SS clutch line. That's as soon as I can get the courage to attempt bleeding the clutch line...
:unsure:

I did it but decided to wait on the SS lines. The clutch feel is a lot better with it removed. I don't think that it will have any negative effect on the transmission but it does place more responsibility on the driver. I believe that Honda and many other manufacturers are trying to make manuals easier for the novice driver. I think that they should leave well enough alone and stop putting more nannies in these cars!!

A clutch delay valve is an automotive component added to the clutch system of an automobile to standardize clutch engagement speed. Its purpose is to engage the drive train of an automobile without introducing shock to the drive train components by engaging too quickly. By preventing drive train shock, CDVs also prevent an automobile's balance from being upset, which aids in handling characteristics.
Clutch delay valves operate on the principle that engagement only needs to occur at a certain rate to be efficient and that engaging at a quicker rate can damage the drive train components of an automobile. Engaging the drive train to the engine too quickly can damage drive train parts, including the transmission, differential, half shafts, axles, and CV joints. Engaging the drive train too slowly can damage the clutch friction disc and cause clutch slippage.
Clutch delay valves operate as one-way restrictor valves that limit the volume of fluid that can move through the lines in a given time. This ensures a steady quick and firm engagement without being too fast for the drive train to handle since clutches can quickly disengage but re-engagement is damped. The clutch delay valve slows clutch engagement and was intended to reduce drivetrain shock in the event that an inexperienced driver quickly engaged the clutch at higher revs.

I believe there are posts on here somewhere about it.
Just do a search. It may be under cdv if you can't find it.

How are you going to post this in the DIY section with not even one (1) comment on what you did differently that wasn't already on the forums, yet alone pictures or a video.

CDV questions. 14 Civic Si

I've been driving my Si for a couple months now and have loved it. But the thing I can't get over is the Clutch Delay valve they have in the slave cylinder. I feel like I never know when my clutch is going to engage and it really sucks I can't rip 2nd gear at redline like all my other hondas without grinding. Has anyone taken their CDV out? I've lurked around but haven't found a good write up to take it out and im not sure if I want to start taking parts off the new car.

If anyone can help me figure it out it would make driving so much better.

It's funny I was just thinking about this, for some reason that I can't figure out it seems even more intrusive in the warm weather. But yeah theres a lot of threads on CDV deletes, gotta search around.
