I am not sure. I will look into that before I cut holes in the coroplast. I had it just zip-tied on so it was easy to get off. However I have to pull the bumper again to put it back on.
There also may be other problems with it. It is beyond ball-less. I have to go up some pretty steep hills on my way home and I have a hard time pulling them even down in 3rd gear. Like I said before I am still working on a tank of gas that half sat in the car for at least a year and a half diluted with Super. I am hoping some of my lack of power issues dissapear when I run this tank out and refill and change the fuel filter. I also dont forsee a very good tank for mileage this time. I am down to about half with 200 miles on it so I think I am looking at a sub-EPA tank.
Monday it is getting new timing belts, belts, brake flush, oil change, and major lube job. Hopefully I can burn the rest of my tank by then and drop in the new fuel filter all at once.
A bog instead of a surge might mean that the ecu is sending extra fuel but the VTEC cam is not active and you dont get the extra valve lift. That could lead to a rich fuel mixture I would think. But I could be wrong about that.
