    Hi, as the topic says, I have a 1st gen b16a swapped into my 89 CRX hf, and the fuel filter I have on there now is for a 1.5l hf motor. I have been having problems @ high rpms, and have been told it may be due to low fuel pressure. I have a new fuel pump & new filter (for the hf motor), but can I put a larger/higher flow filter on? The filter for a 1991 intergra looks very similar, but is designed for a larger displacement engine...

    I guess my question is what filters are you guys using in your b16 swaps, and can I increase fuel pressure by using a larger filter?

    Thanks,
    Matt

    Stock fuel filter should be just fine. Once you start upgrading the fuel, then yes, replace it.
