Tried out 15psi from my house to dt, realizing it wasnt liking it too much I put the stock controller back on along with stock wheels and hubcaps to see if my MPG increases

attempted to clean out my muffler to try to get rid of the whistling noise, instead I ended up modding the head off of one of the bolts. I'm also testing out the amount of dust my shroom filter lets in, so far it isn't too bad but my temp sensor is screwing up again so my fuel economy is going out the window. time for a drop in K&N I believe.

removed my passenger seat, rear seats, spare tire, tire iron, two jacks, MDF insert, trunk carpet, privacy panel, amp, sub, and some random cable I found in the process. It started out as a spring cleaning but driving it this way is kinda fun so it'll stay like this for a few days.

I dont know. They're really not THAT bad. If i'm driving normally, I'll get around 11.7L/100km, if I'm driving "spiritedly" I'm getting around 13.5L/100km. It's not great, but it's not THAT bad either.

Without my foot on it, $8/100km $12-14/100km with heavy foot. Not bad at all.

I have never done this L/100KM thing you guys are doing, I probably right in around Jeff's numbers though. To a full tank of 94 (38ish litres) I usually get around 400 km depending on how i drive.

I've gottan an little as 200 km on a tank, and I have a 60L+ tank...

As long as I don't drive like a fist, I usually get between 400-500 kms.

its funny how 2 cars from different manufactures and different drive wheels can come out so similar. similar power, weight, speed, fuel economy, id even go so far as to say the road holding is very similar with equal tires. altho one can take its roof off and drift. and the other makes farty noises and fits more cargo

Integra luckily still got about 400-500kms to a tank of gas, 45ltr fillups. But if I drive like an asshole I'll get as little as 150, is the worst I've seen.
The beauty of FI car, it can be as good on gas as stock with as big of inejctors you throw at it, unlike your big cammed v8's.. hehe

lmfao that's so sigged

i usually get about 375km to a 45ish liter fill, that's driving nicely... it'll go down to about 300 if i'm on it all the time.

modded $55 usd worth of fittings, just for a fucking oil feed line today from summitracing.com, and i still have to find all of the stuff for my oil drain stuff

anyone know a good place to get a t3/t4/gt turbo oil drain fitting from?

this fucking car is fighting me every single step of the way, if i didn't have to have it out of the garage i'd just say fuck it and scrap the whole project *throws wrench*
