I believe a lot of it has to do with how much you adjust to the way your car drives... I know I'm quite "adjusted" to my car at this point. As for the throttle response, I found that it improved by a...

Nawp. The only thing I've touched related to the transmission is a short shift adapter, hard mount bushings for the shifter mount and a new shift boot. I never really noticed much delay on the clutch...

Wow you've been all over the map with those injectors! I'm still on my RC 310cc injectors (no resistor box req'd) and I only see ~60% duty cycle at redline with a 12.0:1 AFR. I could probably turn it...

Boosted 1st Gen L15A1 Lifespan

Hey guys! I used to be pretty active on these forums, but a while ago school kept getting in the way of my modding and tuning time and I had to pick one or the other, so I unfortunately had to take a...

I'd say the piping. I have my stock midpipe in my coat closet in my apartment and every time I look at it I go :confused: :rotfl:


The piping is like < 1.75" ID and there's so many bends it...

The stock Fit fuel system (on the L15A1 anyway) runs at a STATIC 50psi.

There is no fuel pressure regulator like there is in older Honda setups. This means that as the manifold pressure rises,...

That is really good info OJR! I have been wondering why I get a hiccup at the VTEC crossover since I got my turbo kit. It does only happen cold, just like you say, and I haven't been able to tune it...

I've got my Acura TL switchblade with the RDX faceplate all put together, and the immobilizer transferred.

Except... The dealer is closed until monday, and...

Your AF ratio should depend on manifold pressure more than anything else. The fit uses a wideband, and the FIC can control it very well, so your AF ratios should be dead nuts as follows:

Idle /...

The throwout bearing is probably stronger on a stage 1/2 clutch to handle the heavier clutch spring. I know clutches generally come with them.

I wouldn't worry about upgrading the bearing unless...

It's entirely possible you just have a bad bearing. That's what warranties are for! When I replace my clutch, it will definitely be a stage 1 or maybe even 2 unit. With the torque I'm making it would...

I will wholeheartedly agree with OJR here, for a non-intercooled FI setup, 150F IATs really aren't that bad. Cooler is always better, but I'm sure without my FMIC I would be running temperatures WELL...

p2a00 means your oxygen sensor is dying. I had the same problem. You're going to need a new one, and don't cheap out. You NEED the honda OEM unit. It is a special kind of wideband, and a regular...

I couldn't tell you exactly why it would fail. Do you rest your foot on the clutch at lights? Any pressure on the pedal loads that bearing, it's the part that the clutch fork presses on to pull the...

Its on the front of the motor, above the oil filter, around midway up the block. In other words, its a pain in the MFin arse to get to. GL getting to it, that was the part that took the most time on...

Are you still having the oil burning issue? It could very well be the engine itself, but if it started immediately after adding the turbo I'd look to that as the cause. Could be a kinked return line....

That may be relatively low, but it's still very high in my opinion. On 85 degree days (as hot as it gets for any length of time here), while doing autocross runs (which involve very little airflow...

well the spark plugs are "supposed" to last 100k miles. I wouldn't put it past them to just assume that they are still good because it hasn't been 100k yet.

I'd check to make sure the spark plugs are good, and I'd also be looking for a vacuum leak.

Well it's an integral part of the clutch, so probably a lot. I hear the clutch on the fit is an involved job, as the subframe is in the way of the transmission, so I'll just say be happy it's a...

It really isn't as serious as you'd think.. I've been driving like this for a year or so, and it hasn't gotten worse. The noise will gradually get louder until the bearing fails, so if it gets REALLY...
