    ok here is the deal i swaped a 93 ls in a 90 crx dx and this fucker backfires could it be my timing or is it something else? stock ls no codes or nothing. i have spent like 300 bucks in my exaust alone and i thought that was it but when i took it back they said it was some thing that has to do with my spark or fuel regulator im lost.

    yeah, usually it mean your coil is going out or you have too much gas (one way or the other, you arent detonating all your fuel)...might wanna get a fuel pressure gauge to check...also pull your spark plugs and see if you are running too lean/rich or hot/cold

    sounds stupid on a 4cyl, make sure your plug wires are in teh proper order on the cap and head, remember firing order of a 4 cyl is 1342! :) that WILL cause a backfire. also, you are using the proper ECM right?? :)

    ok i took it out for the second time and i was in a red light and it just died. what should the normal idle be because when im in a stop the engine shakes really bad and it idles really low . i know i got all the plug wires right i used the integra repair manual. also its really loud im running with a 2.5 in. exhaust with a cat and is still freakin loud.

    thanks.

    even with a Cat you will still be loud, cats dont deaden the sound that much.

    is your timing belt on correctly. not off any teeth?

    Fuel pressuse regulator working?

    you also wanna make sure your timing is set at 16* advanced. also check and make sure your throttle body screw isnt all the way closed.
