Bang for buck lah akuma!

If got 40K.. I'd do it already lah.. (do everything overseas incl. tuning the K-pro) then send back the complete shebang down to MY.

Problem is too much bang.. and too little bucks on my side... ROFL!

Of course it does.. it just means... more money.. ROFL!

The old Civic 2.0 with the crippled K20 and the later version still can.. it's just the 6th gen and below that have to modify engine mounts...

Its great to see all sifus are expressing their opinion and experience on this tread. But honestly i dont understand what all sifus are expressing but its ok cos i'm still a newbie in this VTEC modification. I'm trying to learn. My project of simple engine modification will begin next monday. In my town where only a few people are playing with honda(serious one can count) and also no tuner are willing to mod especially VTEC engine, i am now depend on my friend to mod my car. No dyno centre, no expert in tuning fuel management and blah..blah..its hard get a good results in tuning. But its ok.. cos i love VTEC.. LONG LIVE VTEC.:regular_smile:

I will let know what is the result next week to see whether this simple modification really come in day and night. Thanks and cheers!:regular_smile:

To all sifus again, my setting for fuel pressure regulator(FSE brand) is 36psi. Sometimes when i run my car and stop then check the pressure it drop to 30psi. The car power will feel sluggish, so i increase the pressure to 36psi again and run the car again to see what is the pressure and to my horror is pressure jump to 42psi...(headache).. So sifus.. it is due to the fuel pump or the fuel pressure regulator? Also everytime i stop the car i can smell petrol from the engine bay..Thanks and cheers!

If your FPR oso cannot stay constant.. better check a lot of stuff.

petrol from engine bay? check fuel lines...

Pressure not regular? Measure voltage to FPR.. or check fuel pump.. if voltage fluctuates, or the pump is not working properly/tersumbat.. can also cause the pressure become irregular....

Could also be electrical gremlins causing all that stuff on the FPR.

Have to check each and everyone for problems.. then change the setting of the FPR.. simply using the FPR to compensate for fuelling will inherently fail.

Like others have said.. if pressure also cannot keep constant.. there's probably other problems.
