I have become a little less enthusiastic about WAI builds. Mine is not currently installed. I am sure it reduces pumping losses, but not sure how the change in power affects FE and not sure the ECU does not adjust in ways that negate gains. Lots of debate about WAI builds here. I still have mine and might experiement again. Basically, I took it off for an emissions inspection and then was not sure I saw any penalty.

BTW, I have the Honda FSM that covers your car in PDF. I share it with EM members. PM me or post here if you want a copy and we can trade emails.
See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.
