New Member introduce myself

Hi, I'm Ken. I'm an engineer, and a thinker. I've been looking for a new project for a while. I've recently purchased an 06 Honda Civic with an R18A1 engine. I'm excited to start going on it. I've spent all my money currently on the car and new tires, Yohohama touring inflated to 51 psi, but I've made a plan to fix it up soon. I'll get my first fuel economy reading in a couple of weeks when I fuel up again.
Help will be needed and appreciated.

Thank you all.

Welcome to the fun, Ken. You picked a great platform to start with.

Make sure your next purchase for it is a ScanGauge or UltraGauge and you can really start!
