    retard the timing, make sure u have a brand new CAT on there, use combustion chamber cleaner, new spark plugs, for got the name of the valve, but its ontop of the IM, get a new 1 of those. highest octane u can get, and maybe that engine cleaner fuel additive

    hum, i was under the impression that you had to convert to obd1 and try and convince the ref that the b16 is actually from a del sol dohc vtec. that is providing that you are planning on getting yours ok's with the ref.

    (without a ref sticker) provided you are running all of your emissions equipment and everything is in good condition you will pass the emissions portion, but smog techs that know what they are doing (or who you arnt paying) will fail you on the visual inspection.
