  • G2 Integra compatibility database effort

    Given that OEM parts are being discontinued, I'm curious to know everyone's thoughts on if we should put some effort into creating a database of what parts will work when parts (both OEM and aftermarket) are discontinued for our older cars. This came to mind when I saw how the OEM oil filter has shrunk in size and actually states that it was being made compatible with other models. I can't believe how small it is now compared to the 90s! It actually made me feel uncomfortable with respect to its performance.

    I could use some ideas on how to set this up. Have you thought about this before?

    I like this idea. I'd like to basically sort data similar to the way the OEM Acura Parts sites do. Year->Model->Part Group with the BOM or exploded view of parts. Then once you find what you're looking for, have the oem part in one column, then 3 other columns. No modification necessary, some modification necessary, and major modification necessary. In each column, there could be parts numbers, with links (if available),

      This definitely needs to be set up. I can't hardly find anything oem for parts anymore.

          I had this idea also since it's hard to get G2 integra parts where I live. I have a little knowledge in php, html, etc., so if there's something I could help you with, let me know.

            Yes! Fully support this! I tried to do something similar last year on a micro scale for the good ol' Passenger Side Water Leak replacement parts, (see the NAPA stand-in):

              I'm open to options for how to do this. It looks like it will have to be in a table so people can search. Maybe we can do it via a Wiki embedded into G2IC so we can keep track of who is editing what and we wouldn't have to create new logins if it were on another site, etc.
