I gotta be different, LOL!!

I was coming from a chipped p28 ecu, the tps was way off coming back to a stock ecu. set to.5 volt @ no throttle, 4.5 volt @ wide open throttle (on center wire @ tps to ground, basic d - series honda style(most people don't touch these things, as they are not meant to be removed, nor are they adjustable from the factory - they'd rather the throttle body be replaced, but I like to be different!)). Then I re-set timing from the distributor to the first line of retarded ( I think, the one closest to the front bumper of the three lines in a group on the harmonic balancer).

Basically stock settings, just a little retarded LOL!!!

Go into the ecomodding central subforum and start a build thread specifically for your car. Best aay to create a story of your foibles, victories, and frustrations as the car progresses...

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.

So basicly tps was reset to stock and you retarded the ignition timing.

California98Civic, great work! Is there a reason that you did not include the Civic Si? The 98-00 had a 4.266 final drive, according to Honda Civic (sixth generation) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia, which strangely omits that detail for the HX.
