Introduction: New Member with 90 CRX HF
 
Hi all,

After gobs and gobs of searching I finally found the HF I was looking for. It's a completely stock, very well maintained Honda and I'm really enjoying the drive.

I've been getting 45mpg and would love to see a couple tanks in the 50's, so I'll play around with a few things. ;)

Here are a few pictures from previous owner:

The venerable CRX HF. A great platform to work on. Welcome !

Excellent condition!

Had a white 88 HF just like that

Beautiful car. Practice the driving techniques, especially P&G, in the list of 100 above, and you'll see more that 50mpg easily, especially when the weather warms-up. [EDIT: Also, you could consider mods first that don't much alter the appearance or function of the car, if you like its clean stock look, such as an undertray/bellypan or inflated tires, removed power steering, unplugging the A/C relay for winter, a shifter-mounter injector kill switch...]

Looks like it's in pretty good shape. Are you interested in mods?

I would definitely get an MPGuino for the time being.

I'll post some better pictures once the weather clears. "Mods that don't alter the appearance or function much" are what I'm interested in. I don't believe the I have power steering and I need to look into the injector kill switch as I'm not familiar with those details. I'll order a MPGuino and work through that install before making any changes to the HF. Once I have established a baseline, (probably hard to do during a Missouri Winter) I'll run a couple SeaFoam treatments, remove the spare tire, inflate my tires, maybe pull the passenger seat, do a full tune up and valve adjustment, Amsoil for the motor & transmission, clean the EGR ports and send the injectors off to be cleaned. I'd like to find a stock intake manifold and injectors for a 90 CRX HF so I can minimize the downtime of my Honda.

MPGuino will be ordered in a couple days. I'm looking for the assembled, latest version, but there's a lot of information to sort through on these. Anyone have a quick link to the latest & greatest?

Thank you for the comments and suggestions are certainly welcomed. :thumbup:
