I try to keep up on everything but EGR every 10-15k? Do you hawrite up on this? I have only cleaned out the EGR passages on mine.

Excited for good reason too. When in lean burn your MPG normally increase about 10 mpg! It takes a little bit to get used to it, but is worth it!!!!

When I said egr, I ment the passages. Just unbolt the cover and clean them out and you can take your ever off, I just spray a shot of carb cleaner Ito the holes on it. Everything with a hole I spray into. Being careful not to put way to much liquid into the combustion chamber. Although carb cleaner evaporates super quick so it should be fine. Just follow the write ups you would find on google.

Also to better describe lean burn (im still new to this, but dont Worry you will Get it too some day) It's like driving down the road and you feel your car bogg down like the fuel injectors just got clogged or something but the only way to tell is with an mpguino if you are in LB or if your injectors are indeed clogged lol.

Here is my plan. Have the ultragauge install, and program it to show TSP, load, impg, I think I might have a wideband gauge in the garage, I might try to see if I can wire it into the stock wideband??? Will update sometime next week once this is all done!

Ultragauge received and installed. Have it program to single page only with load%, TSP, impg, trip mpg... Those are the only one I am I retested in right now. I will play with it more once I figured out lean burn as that's my only focus at the moment!

Have it display the rear O2 sensor. When this goes to 0.000 it should be in lean burn mode.

The "rear" will be the "downstream" sensor and the UltraGauge will denote it the number 2 sensor.

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.
