    hey guys.
    noob here.
    i have a civic LSI sohc 1.5 auto with an AEM cold air intake (V1) stock fuel rail and injectors, but im looking into getting an adjustable pressure reg.what would u recomend as a good pressure to be running?

    keeping in mind that i will be replacing the fuel rail for an AEM soon.

    cheers for the input!

    keep your stock one... that will be useless unless you plan on tuning

    i do want to start tuning,and thought this would be the next logical step after fitting a new induction kit and exhaust.
    however, i am a noob. so any input would be great :)
    thanks guys

    what up fellow noob.

    i'm 19. building my first car. i've been looking into upgrading my fuel system for a good while now. do lots and lots of research!

    anyway. my suggestion to you, is install a new fuel system all at once, or your just wearing new parts that arn't helping, and could possibly be hurting. I would get:
    • Bigger injectors (320cc seem to be sufficent for any N/A, unless your wildly built. go bigger if you plan on doing turbo one day. Recommend RC brand)
    • New fuel rail (AEM's cool, i like the edelbrock more)
    • New FPR
    • Highflow fuel filter
    • Someone that can tune your car. Or do it yourself...but tuning is an endevor unlike bolt on parts. you can seriously damage your engine. forewarning
    • unless your fuel pump is shitting out on you, let it be. Stock pumps have been known to handle 500hp!
    Good luck!
