    Found these by accident doing a tuneup on my wife’s Acura RDX. They fit like a glove.

    Great find...I need these!

    We don't have Acura over the pond. Is this the 'posh' brand of Honda?...and if so do you know if there is an equivalent in their range.

    They fit well, but they still won't seal a carwash(I know you don't have to ask how I just found out)!

    Some dielectric grease should help seal it up against some normal rainfall. Pressure washer, maybe not so much but worth a try.

    Maybe silicone around the inside grommet to plug end and grease the OD of the grommet with the dielectric.

    Is it rated to stand up to the heat of the head? I couldn't find a temp rating shown.

    Permatex shows -65 to 400°f range and recommends it for plug boots. It will probably help with moisture vs a dry connection.

    All dielectric specific greases are about the same low viscosity and they're sometimes used directly on the contacts. The DC111 is too thick and won't allow good metal to metal contact but it's great for gap filling as well as being resistant to heat and pressure. If you don't need those qualities, any good silicone grease should be able to take heat.
