    Heres another one of my pointless ramblings... I guess it might help someone...:rolleyes:

    1. Locate your Fuel Pressure Regulator (FPR)

    2. Remove it via the (2) 10mm bolts holding it on.

    3. Heres the underside. I've already taken the o-ring out. Don't throw it away!
    [​IMG]

    4. Gather up your B&M FPR kit.
    [​IMG]

    5. Here comes the part where you need to remove the upper portion of the stock FPR. Make sure to give it some gap(about 1/8"), so you don't damage the inner pin.

    6. Don't cut it like this!
    [​IMG]

    7. Heres what you should be looking at after you chop it off.

    8. Clean up the edges with a sander.

    9. Install the provided O-ring into the B&M part.

    10. Install the lower part of the kit to clamp everything together. Be sure to put the 'open' side facing the fuel inlet, as shown.

    11. Slip the factory o-ring back onto the FPR, then screw it to the fuel rail.

    12. Slip on the new Vacuum hose if desired, and your done!

    Now wasnt that simple?

    ^ Depends. 40-45psi should be fine for most bolt-on motors.
    Stock Honda FPRs are set at 37psi.

    Compatible with boosted engines?

    Can the B&M pressure regulator be used for boosted engines? Is it a rising rate? I'm trying to find a regulator and am considering this particular one.

    Yes of course, it will work great :)

    If you'd like to pay the extra money, get one of the AEM FPR's or something. They mount remotely like on the firewall, and also do a good job. (look cool too)

    Hold on, let me grab my internet capable fuel pressure gauge and vacuum leak detector and we'll have you all fixed up.

    XD :D


    Who knows man. You opened up multiple 'avenues' for problems to arise. Like anything else in the world, start fixing one thing at a time till she runs again.

    You sure you're running on all four cylinders? :huh:
