Ive been looking for a solenoid cover for my 01 for a while now. Theres really nothing out there other than skunk2 or password jdm. I was told by JDM the OBD1 cover would fit my car so i ordered one. When i went to put it on it just fell on and is really loose. I talked to someone from JDM and they said to silicone or hot glue it to my soleniod?! Is this normal or safe? Dont really like the thought of superglueing my car. What do you guys think?

You can use doublesided tape, thats what they told me to do. Just check on it from time to time.

Just buff it with sand paper until it's bare metal and hit it with some spraypaint. I used aluminum foil to cover the bottom part of the assembly and sprayed the can. If you're gentle you can remove the three bolts and take the whole valve off. Just do it gently so you don't damage the gasket.

I got one from ebay for like $5 shipped a few years ago. Just powder coated it textured black and keeps it nice and hidden while not looking rusted.

But seriously, this is a cheap "upgrade" that is worth it because the thing rusts and looks crappy. Sanding it... it'll rust right back in a few days or so and these things are cheap, did I mention they are like $10? (a.k.a. cheap)

Also, I used double sided tape on mine and it stayed on through 2 track events and 150+ mph speeds. I bet even if I didn't use the tape it'd still be there.

Is that an "Intel Inside" sticker on your cover?
Also, what's that damper-looking thing attached to your strut?

It's probably the "Skunk2 Inside" logo skunk2 uses.

That bracket is an engine torque dampener aka ETD.

I got one, too. Mine's silver, like the battery tie-down I have too. Both from ebay.

My OEM tie-down was all paint-chipped and rusted, and the OEM VTEC solenoid cover looks like @ss.

So, I got these accessories to cheer up the engine bay. Are they bling? Yes, of course. Do they look good? Why, yes.

Just searched for "vtec solenoid cover" and found a few cheap ones. These ones were for b-series engines, do they still fit decent?

I got the silver one from this seller. Fits great.

It's NOT snug, so you can pull it on and off easily. You should use tape at the top or something, but I never bothered...it hasn't gone anywhere.

The one I got has a really small set screw to tighten it on. Works great.
