i need to be cleaning out the EGR tube and valve, its throwing a code, but not really affecting the performance.

a clogged EGR is gonna kill your mpg

I like how you've restored the interior and the engine bay. take care of that car!

what did you use to clean you engine bay like that? i am want to clean mine up badly myself.
I used a 1:1 mix of simple green and water, after i sprayed down the ENTIRE engine bay with it i used a power spray fitting on the hose... dont spend a lot of time on the electrical connections or near the alternator... after the cleaning was done i used some DRI (displaces water in electrical connections)electrical parts cleaner on the electrical connections and alt. start it up and let it evap.

done.

i have some small plans for the car

1. HID upgrade
2. Coilovers (k-sport) most likely
3. Acura TL Type-s A-Spec wheels
4. Exhaust (cat-back)
5. MAYBE a 99-04 front end and rear end... (if cash is permitting)

honestly if it wasnt for this forum and AcuraZine... i wouldnt have bought this car mainly 97 RLer and hnic were big influences in my acquisition of this car,
the shifter plate diy is done
next is the gauge LEDs
:bigok:

Ok first.. GS wheels are fucking sick... either keep them or sell them to someone on this site... who will love you for it!

second hnic... give me your front end... ok dont give... we can trade... your car is very clean!

and third, why did Honda decide to paint the shifter gate silver when it looooookkkksssss sooooooooo much better chrome?
