    Good work there on those improvements.
    Don't forget to stay on top of the oil changes etc on your N22A1. Look after her and she'll give you great service.

    3000 miles for me too, using the 0w-20 oil from Honda, but sadly there is a massive backlog from Honda to get the oil and one of my oil change is coming close. Time to ring HH and they can pressurise Honda to get the oil.

    Fume smells was getting in the Cabin.
    2 common culprits, either the injectors or exhaust manifold.
    Easy to check the injectors first so took the engine cover off, not a nice sight.

    You need a petrol based engine degreaser like Gunk, soak all the area and let it start to lift the gummy stuff off. Take off what you can and then repeat.

    Not good, but I'm sure you'll get it sorted. You could use what you use to clean the EGR valve as its carbon based, can't think of the name off the top of my head but you should be able to search it on the forum. Isyo.....................

    Not much help I know :Messed:

    So, i tried to tackle this and got nowhere.
    Bought the seals from Honda. IMG_20170216_175023. But it's being a pain to get out.
    Need to clean it first. Started cleaning and look what i found, my car is making coal!
    Maybe I'll start a coal business lol

    Where do those go ? Are they sealing the injectors ? If so I wouldn't attempt the job yourself @DrSam they are never easy to get out and usually need special tools to get them out.

    @SpeedyGee
    Yeah they are not easy. Luckily I have a mechanic friend, his assisting me. I called him, because last thing I want to do is break the injector lol
    Here's some pictures for reference. Part number 4.
