    Assuming you removed it, cleaned it, and let it dry all outside, right? Any slight breeze and that stuff finds its way into a hole or attaches to wet filters like murder hornets on honey bees. Glad it was a simple fix alt least.

    Yes blowing it out with compressed air initially got rid of it but I cleaned it and let it dry outside before reinstalling it :thumbsup:

    I called steve today at etunez about the honda si, I am sending mod info. Just the 3.5 intake Hondata tune right now. I have a full custom 3" exhaust with HP cat with duel mufflers to put on and Hasport rear engine mount with torque solutions exhaust mounts. Have installed the acurity cold air intake. This will make the Honda si have well over 200HP. I will be tuning for 93 gas. Today, I am getting my TNPS sensors turned on with the computer. I have installed special Koing Hypergram rims and Firehawk 500 tires-very sticky tires. By the end of month, it will be a different car:box::dogdance: Very sporty.:driving::corngrin:

    185 with just the cai-the exhaust is a full 3"-it should be well over 200HP with a 93 tune.:banana whip2: that includes 3" down pipe. Not much else is going to make much HP except a turbo or SC.

    Plumbed the Boost Sensor and Vacuum Line. Saw ~-6psi at idle and immediately started hunting for a boost leak. ..then realized that’s normal for a cammed car at idle.

    Installed fog lights. Cars dirty, barely got home from being out for two months. Trying to do some touch ups. Installed all LED's too. I installed resistors and they stopped hyper flashing, but I noticed earlier that they randomly went back to hyper flashing and then normal? I got the fogs for $120 off Amazon OEM.

    Those foglights look nice!

    Was the install hard? I want to add some to my car for when I have to go over the lake area to work -- it's always freaking foggy.

    It wasn’t too hard, I got them for $120. They came with everything you need and it’s OEM. I followed a YouTube video and a PDF.

    I tried my best to do my trunk out of hardwood today. It came out okay and I know I can do better, but it’s good enough for the time being. I’m waiting on some rubber trim to edge up against the side of the wood for a clean look.

    Ditto. I probably would’ve opted for a darker material though.

    I’m still looking, but I drive semis across country and I don’t have time to wait on something to come in Since I’m only home for four days, so I just gave it a shot with whatever was available and I can work on a better template and material later on to get it where I want it.

    I’m not crazy about the color either, but in time I’ll get maybe a cherry wood.

    thanks booty! Figured I’d see how it looks and try it out.
