Here's a link to a diagram for an 87 civic with auto- manual should be very similar= http://www.redpepperracing.com/techn...12-05.png.html

I picked up a few highway mpg in my 87 Civic by putting in an HF trans, but it decreased my city mpg.

In summer, I was getting 42-44 mpg at 65 mph with my 1.5 liter engine, but I swapped to a 1.3 liter engine and am trying to do even better.

Erik, thanks for the link. Exactly what I needed.Any other mods other than the trans? Alternator, mirrors, air dam, wheel covers, bellypan? Don

There is another mod to lean it out, but it will be difficult because alterations to certain vacuum connections will need to be done inside the black emissions boxes.

Is your vacuum system intact- or had someone already removed much of it?

One more thing- you can inflate your tires to the stated maximum on the sidewall- but be careful because it may handle differently.
