heres my problem 91' prelude si, it runs good for about 10 min. of driving then it goes to shit!!! as i start off from a red light trough the gears it wants to bog down. i can let off or give a little more gas and it will pull through. its been sitting for about 6-7 months, could it be condensation in my gas tank? any ideas?

well usually the gas has a tendency to break down and cause some rubberish shit inside the tank. that could clog your fuel lines.

unplug the gas tank drain plug, drain out the gas. put the plug back in. and refill with gas. i would say put about 3 gallons in there and take it to a gas station and fill it up. unless a gas station is far away, then i recommend putting more just to be safe

so i guess no gas additive will do any good? just my damn luck. oh well, it will give me a good excuse to get away from the old lady, drink beer and sniff gas fumes. i'm just joking, i won't drink beer! or will i. hmm. life is full of so many choices.:smoker2:

Just the test pipe and some new wheels and tires,but the tires are the wrong size:mad: They are almost 2" taller than the stock ones, so my gear ratio just got taller. On the good side I just got some Azenis mounted on my stock steelies so we should see an improvement. Also I have just got a new bottle heater, purge kit (old one stop working), Jacobs ice pack with tourqer coil, Jacobs Nitrous mastermind, and I am picking up some crower 62404 cams from my friend tomorrow. All of which I am going to try to install by friday so I can race. It is going to be hard to get it all done by then. I hope to see 13.7ish times

The engine is sooo warn out...once it gets hot it just can't have the power like it used too. Get a newer car. Unless you want to rebuild it.
