    Got the tab installed and it's working great ,
    Good sound , and dashdroid is brilliant .
    IMG_8266.JPG
    So the other night my fuel pump gave a high pitch sound
    And I can smell fuel on add time ,
    Someone said it may be my fpr with high pressure in the tank and that's why my pump mad the sqeel ,
    I got a fuel pump just in case ,
    And am still looking for a fpr ,
    When I get the fpr I will swap that first and go from there .
    Don't know if this is bad for 96 b16a sir
    15L of petrol is getting me 140 or 150k that 3 gallons
    And it's all short trips stop and start . that's 30 miles to a gallon , no motorway driving ?
    Anyway I will report back with my findings.
    P,s I have lost a little mileage but not much ,
    If anything with the cold air I should get more mileage ?

    Ok , but it fine now ? I thought I heard it two weeks ago but nothing like the last time , funny you say that because that's what it sounded like , high pitch sqeel like pressure out a tiny pine hole , it's has only happened two times , with make me think the fpr is playing up and leaving to much pressure in tank ? when I was fueling up last time and I opened the fuel lid , a big whush came from it , bigger then ever before ? someone also said it could be evap purge sol not venting ?

    No problem jesse , no it only happened two times ,
    And after driving I can smell fuel when I get out the car ,
    Not very strong , I done a recent valve adjustment and set them to the tighter spec .006in .007ex , I'm just thinking that may be leaving the valve open a little when she starts to fire ? given me the smell , and exhaust sounds different on tic over ,
    I will put valves back to .007In and .008ex first . I will do that in the morn and see how it goes ,
    But 31miles to the gallon city driving is what I'm getting now , that seems about right ,

    Redone my valve lash , and I think I had them to tight and it was not closing the valves all the way ,
    Sound better on idle no more weird sound from tail pipe
    And I had a little flat spot around 2k to 3.5k
    That seems to be nice a smooth now ,
    Was like not a lot at them rpm range then loads at
    3.5 4k strange ?
    But still have to fix my fuel pump or fpr ,or evap purge sol not venting and leaving to much pressure in the tank ?
    We will see , just looking for fpr atm .

    Car was driving strange and it never entered my head to check calipers , was only getting stuck a little ,
    But yesterday it got stuck alot ,
    Fixed now anyway ,

    So car is still going strong small things done since last update caliper replaced and some cv boots and silly little things, also got my hands on a hondash to read sensor and datalog,
    I'm using a 7inc tablet as my infotainment and it works really well , I get sound from a bluetooth radio that I put down by the gearstick, great update to the civic imo . IMG_8266.JPG
    Iv a nct/mot test on Tuesday and should fly it but you never know? Just need to put cat on and take out hid lights for standard h4s,
    But all in all no major changes as of yet , 20170423_133858.jpg
