    Help! my engine is running rich according to the carbon build up on my plugs. I'm doing a turbo set up next week and i'm worried about the mixture. Will the turbo help lean it out a little, or is there another way I can go about leaning out the mixture a little bit so that it stops running like crap. thanks!

    if your already running rich, your car is just anticipating the turbo. this is good you wont need an fmu to keep the mixture right B) .

    btw, just kidding. encase someone took it seriously and is about to give it a try. DONT

    if you have an adjustable fpr, get a gauge!!! they are like 30 bucks...

    to the topic starter:
    what are you planning on doing when you get the turbo?? you better budget in some form of engine management and a few hours of dyno time.

    1.) unhook fpr
    2.) toss into nearby body of water.
    3.) buy hondata system.
