Another lurker decides to give it a go

Sup guys? Been on here for about a week, siphoning any bit of knowledge I could get my hands on. Big into Honda, namely the 5th gen EG Civic, my goal is to have a "nice" car, which to me means its fun to drive on the weekends, has every option a "nice car" would have (sunroof/ac/ps/leather interior/heated seats etc etc) while still maintaining "hypermiler" status during the weekdays so you probably won't see many external mods on mine, but more on the inside mainly through tuning and engine efficiency. I know there's a lot of Civic VX fans out there who love the D15Z1 "Lean-burn" VTEC-E engine and I must say I wish I had one. Since I don't, I'm left with street tuning AFR's into the 15-17:1 range for cruising on Crome and a wide-band. Anyone who's big into tuning and has any advice, I've been to EFI University's EFI 101 class and I'd love to discuss the topic with anyone.

Of course!



Still got the original R12 system.








The car has been garaged for at LEAST 95% of its life and it shows, thank goodness for people who care about their car's paint, hard to believe its nearly 17 years old.
